LOK Vs LEV Dream11 Team And Match Report: Must win encounter for either side if they are to keep challenging for a spot in the next round.
Although Juventus and Atletico Madrid should more or less end up sealing the top two spots in Group D of the Champions League, with Atletcio Madrid having yet to have assured themselves of a berth in the next round, chances continue to stay alive for today’s opponent. Althouhg with only the three points to their name till now meaning Lokomotiv Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen are chasing a massive deficit, either will be looking to emerge out of today’s encounter with a win to their name.
All but out of the showpiece tournamnet with three defeats in succession, Bayer Leverkusen managed to stun everyone the last time around as they down Atletcio Madrid 2-1. It was a result which not only managed to keep them afloat in the tournamnet but with it also throw side spot wide open with three sides currently embroiled in the hunt for that position.
Elsewhere for the home side whose only win in four matches came when they defeated Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 the last time around, today’s match comes bearing a two toned identity. While a win would do massive favours in keeping their ardent supporters engaged in the clamour for second place, the side will also bolster their chances of finishing in third place and with it ascertaining themselves of a spot in the Europa League.

LOK Vs LEV Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Luks Hradecky from the visiting side will be making his way into our side as the goal-keeping option given the slew of saves he’s bound to pull off today. The shot stopper will be persistently called upon to try and rescue his side from the incessant carnage he’ll be encountering at his goal, a set of events bound to rope in a slew of save points for him.
LOK Vs LEV Dream11 Defenders
The last thing which looks set to transpire in this encounter is the likelihood of a cleansheet. Both the sides have shipped in the seven goals till now in the tournamnet with their paper thin backline seeing them paper over the cracks and be left picking up the pieces. It sees us limit out backline t the bare minimum of three selections, all names who are bound to canter their way down the park and come up with a goal or assist to their name.
It sees us opt for Maciej Rybus and Vedran Corluka for this encounter from the home side with Corluka set to feature in this encounter despite having picked up an injury in the side’s bygone contest. Elsewhere from the visiting setup we are picking up Sven Bender and Jonathan Tah, two names who are more than adept at marauding their way down the park and providing pinch perfect assistance to their attacking players.
LOK Vs LEV Dream11 Midfielders
Although both the sides have struggled to score with Bayer Leverkusen managing to score four times in four matches whilst Bayer Leverkusen finding three goals till now, we envisage this to be an encounter where both the sides find success in their attacking travails. This is an encounter of pivotal importance for both the setups, a fixture which will see either come hot out of the blocks as they look to try and amass the full points at stake.
Kerem Demirbay and Paulinho Filho are going to play integral roles for the visiting side in their attempts of crafting a goal together whilst from Lokomotiv Moscow we have decided to indulge in the myriad services of a trivalent of picks. With their leading goal scorer and striker Krychowiak set to mss this clash, the trio of Dmitry Barinov, Adrain Zhemaletdinov and Anton Miranchuk will be asked to incorporate their skill set in unison and imbibe the skill set present in them to pummel and batter a lacklustre defence.
LOK Vs LEV Dream11 Strikers
His side’s leading goal scorer with the 5 goals and three assists till now, Kevin Volland from the visiting contingent will be bringing an end to our proceedings for this encounter.
