Dream 11 Picks
Ederson Moraes from Manchester City will be instilled in our side as the goal-keeper for the impending encounter. Manchester City’s backline has been a flummoxed one this season and with Real Madrid set to unleash a barrage of shots across Ederson’s way, the shot stopper can easily accrue some solid save points.
With this set to be a high stakes fixture, one where two enigmatic attacking sides go for the jugular in a bid to make it to the next round, a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely for either side. It’s a discourse which sees us limit our side to the three defenders, all players capable of pulling off something in the attacking docket as well.
And fitting the bill of our requirements perfectly was the triad we have indulged in from Ream Madrid. The Spanish club has thrusted massive importance on its fullbacks cantering up the park and providing much needed wide unbridled support.
Ferland Mendy and Dani Carvajal have reposed the faith earmarked in them by persistently galloping into the side’s attacking soirees to make them must have picks. CB Raphael Varane managed to thump in two headers in La Liga to see him wrap up our set of picks from the club for the outing.
Manchester City’s player of the season, Kevin de Bruyne endured his finest ever campaign with the side in the Premier League. With 12 goals and 20 assists, the midfielder ran the show for the side, a campaign which grew in worth owing to the otherwise dismal season his side endured.
He is partnered up by Riyadh Mahrez who has the four assist for the club this season, two players capable of venturing into the empty spaces Real Madrid leave as they try to forage the all important two goals. Real Madrid on the other hand see us begin with the pick of Toni Kroos, someone whose pinch perfect crosses and passes have made him lethal on freekicks and corners.
CDM Casemiro links up with him, someone whose ball carrying abilities saw him come up with a couple of crucial goals in the La Liga.
He’s not only Real Madrid’s top scorer in the La Liga but the Champions League as well to see us make striker Karim Benzema a must have pick for the outing. Rodrygo Goes was in electric touch in the competition before the season was halted with his four goals making the second pick from the visiting team.
Elsewhere, with the 5 goals and 2 assists, City’s top scorer, Raheem Sterling wraps up our set of picks for the day’s clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
