LOK vs JUV Dream11 : Juventus strive to move to the annuls of Group D when they play third placed Lokomotiv Moscow today.
Level on points with Atletico Madrid at the moment, Juventus know that anything less than a win today would severely damage their aspirations of moving into the pinnacles of Group in the showpiece Champions League. And things will be far from straightforward for them when they take on a tricky and gusty Lokomotiv Moscow side who are fighting to keep their chances of qualification alive in this one.
Currently in third place with just the three points, for the home side, a win would mean the demise of their chances of moving unscathed from the group. Just the one win in three matches has been massively underwhelming from the side but they’ll take some heart from their previous showing against Juventus when the two sides had gone at loggerheads against each other two weeks back.
Shutting down Juventus for almost the entirety of the match as they lead 1-0, the side eventually shipped the two goals to Paolo Dybala to lose 2-1 on the night but the result will not deter them massively ahead of the impending clash. It was not just the perseverance and fortitude they showed the last time around to punch above their weight but the current abject form of Juventus which promises to make this a closely fought affair.
Although the side are currently looking well set to cruise their way from Group D, the side have yet to really take over the footballing fraternity. Their performances have lacked the touch of a Sarri side with the team struggling to fathom together meaningful attacking plays and having to rely on moments of individual magic rather than a complete team performance.

LOK vs JUV Dream11 Goal-Keeper
The home side’s Guilherme is going to be brought in by us for today’s encounter from Juventus. If the side are to win this one or even pull off a draw, they’ll need their shot stopper to be at the pinnacle of his game and pull off a slew of saves as he encounters a barrage of shots, a narrative we see him fabricating today.
LOK vs JUV Dream11 Defenders
Juventus have been a relatively steady and stable side when it comes to the defensive side of their game with the team conceding just the mere three goals in their three clashes, something which sees us earmark a partnership from the side. We begin with CB Matthijs de Light with the defender scoring against Torino at the weekend in the side’s 1-0 win.
He’s accompanied by leftback Alex Sandro with the player an essential part of Sarri’s gameplan of asking his fullbacks to canter down the pitch dutifully and provide wide attacking support to the side’s attacking players. We have the one pick come in from the opposition as well meanwhile with us moving in for Vladislav Ignatiev for this one.
LOK vs JUV Dream11 Midfielders
Our two man partnership from the visitors comprises of Miralem Pjanic and Federico Bernadeschi, two players who have hammered down a role in the heart of Juventus side. The two are an integral part of Maurizio Sarri’s gameplan of quick ball movement and rotations and with ther ability to come up with a goal or assist as well, the two offer pristine value for this match.
From the opposition meanwhile, we have gone in with a trivalent of picks as we seamlessly blend in attack and defence from the side. Our intoxicating blend comprises of Anton Miranchuk, a player who’ll be handed over the onus of delivering an incisive display in the attacking sorties while the duo of Dmitry Barinov and Grzegorz Krychowiak will be asked to bolster things defensively.
LOK vs JUV Dream11 Strikers
Had it not been for his two goals the last time these two sides met, Juventus could have easily ended up been stunned to a defeat at home. Paolo Dybala come on as a substitute in that mach but his performance will see him be a part of his side’s playing 11 for this one, seeing us getting him in from the outfit along with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are choosing Ronaldo as our captain for today while Dybala comes in as the vice-captain.
