Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Thomas Muller – Thomas Muller has been excellent this season with 10 goals and 17 assists in 26 starts so far. He has created 98 chances, completing 72% of his attempted dribbles. Muller has scored or assisted in almost all his Bundesliga fixtures and will sure to be their best chance of scoring goals.

Patrick Schick – The Czech international has 10 goal contributions (9 goals and 1 assist) in 16 starts in the Bundesliga this season. He has created 23 chances, dispatched 19 shots on target and 18 successful dribbles at a completion rate of 75%. He will look to get into the Bayern Munich box and cause troubles to them.

Differential Pick

Jamal Musiala – The 18-year-old has been in fine form of late with 6 goals in his 5 starts so far. He has scored 3 goals in his last 2 games for the club including a stunning performance against Wolfsburg. He has a shot conversion rate of 60% with 35 successful dribbles at a 71% completion rate. Musiala has been competing for a spot against some of the best players in the world but he has finally gotten a chance and he has grabbed it well. Musiala has a goal contribution every 111 minutes of football which is amazing for an 18-year-old.

BAY vs LEV Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Neuer
Defenders – S. Bender, Tapsoba, Pavard, Davies
Midfielders – Sane, Musiala, Diaby
Forwards – Muller (C), Schick (VC), Bailey

Likely Winner:

Bayern Munich can all but seal their title with a win against Bayer Leverkusen but it will not be as straightforward. Despite being on the way to another league win, Bayern has been far more vulnerable this season and with their long injury list, they will not be their usual dominant self. Leverkusen should try and take advantage of this and invade their defensive third on every counter-attack. However, both sides played as early as Saturday and there will be signs of fatigue in both sets of players in the BAY vs LEV Today Match Prediction.
