Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Marcos Llorente – The Spaniard has been very impressive of late and has stepped up during a time where Atleti has lost forwards to injuries. He has 11 goals and 10 assists so far scoring 2 and assisting 2 in his last 2 games. He has created 46 chances, succeeded in 31 dribbles and maintains a pass accuracy of 83%.

Angel Correa – With 7 goals and 8 assists, Correa has managed to make his mark on a team that has the likes of Suarez and Felix. The Argentine has 3 goals and 2 assists in his last 3 games including a star performance against Eibar. Correa has created 37 chances, completed 39 dribbles and has a pass accuracy of 80%.

Differential Pick

Alex Berenguer – The Spanish international has 7 goals and 3 assists in La Liga this season. Playing on the left-wing, he has created 34 chances, succeeded in 26 dribbles and whipped in 22 accurate crosses. The 25-year-old is extremely versatile and can slot in anywhere upfront and might hold the key to unlocking the tight Atletico defence. He will look to link up with the likes of Unai Lopez, Raul Garcia and Inaki Williams to create problems and get into dangerous spaces in the attacking third.

ATH vs ATL Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Oblak
Defenders – Lodi, Savic, Trippier
Midfielders – D. Garcia, Berenguer, Llorente (C), Carrasco
Forwards – Williams, R. Garcia, Correa (VC)

Likely Winner:

Athletic Club doesn’t have a lot to play for in his game but it is a must-win for Atleti. Any slip up at this point in the season can see Barcelona overtake them in a title race that should’ve been put to bed a while ago. Simeone’s side has conceded just 20 times in 32 games this season and Bilbao will have to do very well to breach that. The ATH vs ATL Today Match Prediction should be a win for the away side who are unlikely to fall at this stage. It will not be easy but Atletico Madrid should emerge victoriously.
