Dream 11 Picks
Lokomotiv Moscow’s Guilherme Marinato will find a spot in our side as the goal-keeper for the upcoming encounter. Krasnodar can be a lethal attacking team when functioning as a complete setup and with Marinato set to encounter an onslaught of shots, he can easily end up with a solid amount of saves points given his expertise.
The cleansheet is the last thing set to come out of today’s encounter. The 5 goals the two scored between each other in gameweek one was vindictive of the attacking thrust these two have in their kitty, two sides who can become renowned and revered as lethal attacking teams.
It sees us limit our side to just the three defenders for the forthcoming with all our picks of being of attackingly inclined names. It sees us revel ourselves in the dynamic and diminutive duo of Cristian Ramirez and Sergei Petrov from Krasnodar, two players who are capable of going on a rampage to leave the opposition in a jeopardy.
Lokomotiv Moscow will meanwhile see the enterprising Maciej Rybus be ingrained in our side given his penchant to gallop into his team’s attacking soirees.
Helping himself to a goal in Lokomotiv Moscow’s first encounter this season, Aleksei Miranchuk was quick to remind everyone of his credentials. The player stomped his authority with a display that alluded towards the moniker he’s earned of the side’s focal point in attack.

Dmitry Rybchinsky will be wrapping up the triad of picks from the club for the upcoming contest with the aforementioned two players thriving off his two assists to bring their goals to fruition.
Krasnodar will see Remy Cabella become the first name to be opted by us from the side. The midfielder was responsible for two goals in his side’s opening 3 -0 win, a performance which saw him be serenaded with man of the match prize on the day.
An assist in the same encounter sees Kristoffer Olsson complete the one-two of picks from the visiting team for the affair.
The attacking picks from Krasnodar keep rolling in for us after the side scored the second most goals last season at a hefty 49. Marcus Berg will become the first name to be indulged in by us in this slot with the striker scoring a goal in the side’s season opener.
Wanderson Campos links up with him to see this become a juggernaut for us, one made up of two worldclass attacking names.
