JUV vs BOG Dream11 : Relentless Juventus make for extremely formidable and daunting opponents for a regressive and unravelling Bologna side
While this match is all about Juventus as Serie A returns for its eight gameweek after being out for two weeks, we’ll be beginning our narrative around the match with Bologna. After winning two matches from their opening three set of fixtures, the side have failed to record a single win in their next four clashes, a stinker of a spree of form which has seen them go on a swift downward spiral in the league.
Drawing to Lazio in their previous clash, a 2-2 result which saw the side being pushed down into 11th place, Bologna know the need to wrench out of their ordeal is now. Unfortunately for them, they couldn’t have been handed over a more difficult match today with top of the table Juventus going at loggerheads with them.
While Juventus were seeing results go their way in the early part of the season, those wins lacked conviction, seeing the side squirm their way to the three points but without showing the pulsating football the side should have been doling out. It took them for them to settle into Sarri’s brand of football but the Italian has left footprints of his Sarriball all over the club now, seeing them emerge as the best side in the league by some distance.
The only team in the league to yet lose a match, Juventus find themselves in first place, the one point ahead of Inter Milan as thing stand after getting the better of them in the side’s previous fixture. The 2-1 win was the outfit’s best display of the season, a match which has the potential to be a defining moment for them and make them a truly worldclass global side which the side have the ability to become.

JUV vs BOG Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Despite Bologna looking paper thin at best in defence, the side’s goal-keeper Lukasz Skorupski has gone about his business unperturbed. He’s continued waging a lone battle for his side, galvanising a defence which at times has decided to just part ways and allow oppositions to rummage past it with ease.
JUV vs BOG Dream11 Defenders
With just 6 goals let in the seven matches they have played till now and more importantly just the sole against an Inter Milan side revered for its attacking play this season, we had to heavily bolster up our backline with picks from Juventus. Both Alex Sandro and Matthijs de Ligt are chosen by us for today’s encounter while from the opposition we are bring their leftback, Ladislav Krejci after he scored for the side against Lazio.
JUV vs BOG Dream11 Midfielders
Things are more balanced over here with us choosing the two midfields apiece from either side. From Juventus we have Miralem Pjanic and Federico Bernadeschi come in for us, two players who have been asked to be the watchdogs of their side’s midfield and clamp down on opposition’s by intertwining both attack and defence in unison.
From the visiting meanwhile we have brought in a seamless blend of function and grace, rebuffing our side with Nicola Sansone and CDM Andrea Poli.
JUV vs BOG Dream11 Strikers
All three of our picks are from Juventus, all players who look equally likely to score for their side. The side’s leading scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo is our first pick with the three goals and one assist for himself till now with Gonzalo Higuain and Paolo Dybala both coming in for us as well with Dybala scoring in the last match for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ronaldo is our side’s captain for this fixture whilst we are going in with Dybala as the vice-captain. In case Dybala doesn’t be named in his side’s playing 11, Higuain replaces him for us.
