Fantasy Team Picks
Had it not been for Yann Sommer, Borussia Monchengladbach could have easily ended up conceding more than the couple of goals they did.
With a cleansheet to their name the last time around, City showed why they have been such a tough side to score against this term. We envisage them showing the same grit and fortitude today as well to see Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte be inducted in our side.
Kevin de Bruyne scored twice the last time he took to the pitch to see him and Ilkay Gundogan who scored in that outing as well in ingrained in our unit.
Riyadh Mahrez completes the trio from the club while the visiting side will be represented by the electric Florian Neuhaus.
Alassane Plea is not only the side’s top scorer with the 5 strikes but he’s also pulled off the most assists at three for the club.
Marcus Thuram who has the two assists to his name completes the set of picks from the club while the two assists for Raheem Sterling see him be our pick from the home side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 5 goals and 12 assists this season make Kevin our captain while Ilkay is the vice-captain.
Sommer, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Kevin, Mahrez, Ilkay, Florian, Plea, Marcus, Raheem
