MRT Vs BEN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Maritimo finds themselves precariously sitting on the brink of relegation.

While they are four points clear of the bottom two, 16th placed Maritimo will be well aware that things can go on a downward spiral any time for them. Very much embroiled in the relegation scrape as things stand, the side is in a dire need to cover its tracks and get out of the pickle it finds itself in.

Losing their foregone clash, Maritimo were left ruing the set of events which unravelled at the end of the 90 minutes. A fixture which should have seen them salvage atleast a point from the affair left the side with a defeat with the team failing to hang onto the tie to lose the five goal thriller 3-2.

That result now leaves them with just the one win in their last five outings, form which is vindictive of relegation. And the side’s peril is all set to further today when they come across second placed Benfica, a fixture where Maritimo will be left with no option but to surrender to a way superior opposition.

Probable Winner

Keeping abreast with Porto all season long, Benfica finally conceded a three point lead to their competitors in the bygone gameweek. The side stumbled toa 4-3 defeat to Santa Clara in a cliff-hanger, a result which leaves them with little option but to win every encounter from here on.

Fortuitously for them, Maritimo hardly make for a stiff test with the visiting team set to clobber a skewed opposition today.

MRT Vs BEN Dream11 Picks

Goal-Keeper

Maritimo’s Charles gets the nod for us to be inducted into our side as the goal-keeper for today’s encounter. A resilient figure, his perseverance has been responsible for the side stuttering its way clear of the relegation zone with the goal-keeper helping add much needed unstinted support to an otherwise paper thin defence.

Defenders

They might have gone onto ship the 4 goals the last time around but it does little to take away the shine from beneficia’s defence this season. Prior to that result, the side’s defence was the most sublime this season, a backline under whose tutelage the team found itself ion with a very realistic shout of winning the title this year.

It’s a backline which has all of our faith, a defence from which we’ll be indulging in the two players. We begin with rightback Andre Almeida who has the four assists, a player whose willingness to canter down the park has come across as a blessing in disguise for the side.

He finds company in the gripping Nuno Tavares while the opposition wills see us opt for the pick of fullback Bebeto

Midfielders

With a gargantuan 15 goals and 11 assists this season, Pizzi has emerged as the mainstay of Benfica’s title march this season. One of the most resplendent names in the league, the player has emerged as a stupendous performer, a player who has blown apart defences with his sprawling skill set.

We are going to be pairing him alongside Rafa Silva who has pulled off the 6 goals for Benfica as well with the two forming a formidable and lethal partnership. Up against a side which has leaked in the 38 goals, Gabriel Pires and Julian Weigel make an advent into our Dream 11 side from Benfica as well to wrap up the quartet of selections from the team.

On the other hand, the opposition will see Jorge Correa be snagged by us as the lone pick from the team for the encounter.

Strikers

Carlos Vinicus has had a massive hand to play in Benfica’ consummate success as an attacking unit. His 17 goals have not only seen him top score for the side but have guided his counterparts as well to see them flourish under his tutelage.

The home side will also see their leading scorer make a foray into our component with us venturing in with Rodrigo Pinho who has pulled off the 8 goals for the team.

Captain And Vice-Captain

His 26 goal contributions made it prudent to make Pizzi our side’s captain while Carlos is the vice-captain.

Dream 11 Team

Marcelo, Andre, Bebeto, Tavares, Pizzi, Correa, Silva, Weigl, Pires, Pinho, Vinicus
