Up against stalwarts Juventus, the side know they can’t afford the slightest of slip ups against the group leaders who’ll have that extra bit of motivation infront of their ardent and avid home supporters today.

JUV Vs ATL Dream11 Goal-Keeper
It would have been criminal of us to have our priorities anywhere elsewhere than Atletcio Madrid’s Jan Oblak for today’s encounter. The man between the sticks is held in huge regard in the footballing fraternity with the player being hailed and lauded for his enterprising brand of goal-keeping, one which has seen him being regarded as the finest shot stopper in the world currently.
JUV Vs ATL Dream11 Defenders
With the ramifications so colossal for either side from this contest, we have decided to make a foray with the bare minimum of three selections with a cleansheet looking extremely unlikely. Despite having two stern and compact defences, the circumstances this match is played in means the defensive gameplan will thrown out of the window at some point of time by ether units, seeing us opt for defenders of the attacking persuasion.
It leads us first and foremost to Alex Sandro from the home side with the leftback always being someone who has persistently marauded himself down the park to provide wide support to his attacking players. CB Daniel Rugani comes in as well for us whilst from Atletico Madrid, we have decided to immerse ourselves in the services of Mario Hermoso.
JUV Vs ATL Dream11 Midfielders
We have kept things balanced over here, going in with the two players apiece from either side. We begin with Juventus’ picks with us moving for Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentacur, two central lying midfielders who’ll be deployed today with an eye on not only bolstering up the middle of the side’s formation but also transitioning the ball forward to their integral attacking players.
From the visiting side meanwhile we have gone in with Thomas Partey, a name who will be the key figure in defensive midfield for the side. The player is going to be playing a pivotal role in his side’s defensive gameplan and given the acumen imbued in him, we see him pulling off a slew of blocks and tackles in a bid to stem service to the front three moving players.
Thomas Lemar comes in as well from the side to bring an end to this docket of our Dream 11 side.
JUV Vs ATL Dream11 Strikers
His side’s leading goal scorer with the 5 goals and 1 assist, numbers were not the only reason to emote us towards Cristiano Ronaldo from the hosts’ contingent. The player has loved playing against Atletcio Madrid, a club he’s thrived against and despite his injury predicament at the moment, we envisage him being in the playing 11 for this clash.
Gonzalo Higuain and Paolo Dybala both come in from the side as well despite one of them only being brought on as a substitute given the role they’ll be asked to carry out for their side which makes ther involvement in atleast the one goal an extremely realistic likelihood.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have decided to venture into the clash by divulging in Ronaldo as our captain while Higuain will be the vice-captain.
