Fantasy Team Picks
Our set of picks for the forthcoming showdown begin with the selection of Atalanta’s Pierluigi Gollini. A safe pair of hands, he’s taken over the side’s goal-keeping slot owing to his tenacity and endurance which has seen him put on a gallant face infront of adversary.
Despite coming across one of the most stellar attacking units in the league, we are going to be indulging in a trio from Juventus for this affair. The club is slowly starting to re-establish as a defensive stalwart, a side which is back to giving clubs cold feet.
We begin with CB Leonardo Bonucci who has the two goals with Juan Cuadrado with the three assists joining up with him. Alex Sandro completes the trio of picks from the club while Robin Gosens’ penchant for involving himself in his side’s attacks makes him our pick from the visiting team.
With a goal and assist in his bygone encounter, Weston McKennie is now finally starting to show why the club reposed such faith in his services. Rodrigo Bentacur will be his partner for this contest, a player who is once again making his presence felt all over the park for the unit.
Atalanta meanwhile see Remo Freuler be our pick owing to his searing speed which allows him to work his way past tight spaces.
Scoring twice in his side’s previous fixture, Cristiano Ronaldo was an instant pick for us from Juventus. Paolo Dybala links up with him, a player who is showing why he’s persistently changed the club’s mind about him with him scoring the last time around for the side.
Atalanta will meanwhile see us indulge in the services of striker Duvan Zapata who has the two goals and three assists in his kitty.
