RS Vs NAP Fantasy Team Picks
Alex Remiro from Real Sociedad will find a place in our setup as the goal-keeper for the upcoming contest. The shot stopper kept a cleansheet the last time for his side, one he earned owing to his knowhow of the game.
Letting in a meagre three goals past them in La Liga, Real Sociedad have made for an extremely daunting side to take on. The side’s defensive gameplan has entailed clobbering attacking plays with the backline occupying ideal positions to hold its shape all across the 90 minutes.
Their sound and compact brand of defending sees us opt for Artiz Elustondo and Andoni Gorosabel from the club while the tenacious Kalidou Koulibaly will make way into our setup from Napoli.
After a dreary 2019-20 season, one where his season was ravaged by injury, Hirving Lozano has hit back hard in the 2020-21 season. He’s Napoli top scorer in the league with four goals to his name to see him become our first pick from the side.
He’s been aided well by Matteo Politano who has helped himself with the two goals and two assists. Wrapping up the trio of picks from the Italian side is CDM Fabian Ruiz Pena whose expansive skill set has been him pull off quick attacking breaks for his team.
Real Sociedad’s top scorer with four goals, Portu was always going to be a must have pick for us from the club. He finds company in the services of Mikel Merino who registered the assist for his side’s goal the last time around.
With Napoli’s defensive setup always vulnerable, Mikel Oyarzabal made for an instant pick for us from the Spanish side. Napoli on the other hand have the ever reliable and flawless Dries Mertens make a foray into our side courtesy of his two goals and three assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With both of them scoring on four occasions this season, Mikel will step out as our captain while Portu is the vice-captain.
