Our Dream 11 team begins with the pick of Shakhtar Donetsk’s Andriy Pyatov. The team’s goal-keeper has given his side the aura of invincibility, a player whose endeavours have transpired into tranquil consummate success for the club.
With this being a one off affair and both these sides looking to spare no expense to rake up a win on the day, this hardly looks to be a contest where either side will end up with a cleansheet. However, that didn’t dissuade us from opting for a duo from either side with both the side’s picks being names whose attacking penchant makes them viable options.
Fitting the bill of our discourse perfectly was the duo we have snagged from Basel. Silvan Widmer ended up rolling in an assist for the club in their win against Frankfurt the last time around to see the fullback partner up with counterpart Raoul Petretta who has the three assists.
Shakhtar Donestk will see us indulge in the myriad and guile filled Domison Dodo after his assist in the club’s 3-0 win against Wolfsburg. Mykola Matviyenko is his partner for the day with the player’s tenacity seeing him leave oppositions in disarray.
Fabian Frei’s goal for the side in the foregone encounter saw him further stamp his authority as the focal point of his side’s attack. He now has the five goals to his name in the tournament, a figure which has seen him spearhead his side’s sortie till this stage.
The two goals and two assists for Valentin Stocker see him move in alongside him as his partner for this one, two names capable of making life a travesty for the Ukrainian club. The opposition will on the other hand see us opt for a trivalent, one responsible for seeing the side clobber Wolfsburg 5-1.
His team’s second leading scorer with the two goals to his name, Alan Patrick becomes the first name of this trio. He’s joined up by the duo of Marlos and Taison with both the players have strung together the one assist each for the club.
His side’s top scorer in the tournament with three goals, the effervescent Junior Moraes will be bringing down the curtains our side for the encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With three goals, it was prudent to make Moraes our side’s captain while Frei is the vice-captain.
