BRI vs DER Dream11 | Dream11 Grand League Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

The loss in the Championship playoff last season was both a painful and regression point, but it’s a new season and a new beginning for Derby County after as they aim to be relevant in the fight for the promotion this season.

While Bristol City are a challenger as well for the promotion and will head into the game with winds on their sails following a 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers in the last game.

MATCH Info: Championship
When: August 21, 2019, 12:30 AM
Where: Vodafone Arena


BRI vs DER Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

  • Both the teams have won once in the first three games in the 2019-20 Championship season.
  • But Derby County are unbeaten, having drawn the other two games, while Bristol City have already tasted a defeat which came at home against Leeds United.

Team News:

Derby County:

  • Jayden Bogle is the only injury absentee for Derby County at the moment. The 19-year-old right-back suffered an ankle injury during the 0-0 draw against Swansea City 10 days ago.
  • No other player is expected to miss the game for Derby due to injury or suspension, which means Phillip  Cocu has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
  • We still expect one or two from manager Phillip Cocu to the side which drew 2-2 against Stoke City.
  • The reason being that the Rams are playing their 2nd game in just three days.
  • However, Cocu normally doesn’t flirt with his playing 11 often and we could yet see him naming a similar XI from the last match.

Bristol City:

  • Jay Dasilva has been ruled out for Bristol City and will not feature here. The 21-year-old is recovering from a tibia fracture and is expected to miss at least five months of action.
  • But Pedro Pereria is nearing a return after recovering from a knock he suffered a fortnight ago. The 21-year-old is on a season-long loan from Benfica.
  • Head coach Lee Johnson is expected to continue with a 5-3-2 formation which gave his team its maiden victory of the season.

BRI vs DER Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:

Martyn Waghorn: The 29-year-old scored twice in the last game against Stoke City, including a 70th-minute match-saving penalty.

  • Goals: 14
  • Assists: 04

Florian Jozefzoon: Was in and out of the team last season due to an injury, but he is fit now and is an integral part of the team.
