Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Karim Benzema – Benzema was surprisingly dropped for the Getafe game but he should be in the running for this one. He has scored 19 goals and provided 6 assists in La Liga this season while also creating 32 chances. Benzema has dispatched 46 shots on target, completing 30 successful dribbles at a 64% completion rate.

Vinicius Junior – Despite drawing blanks against Getafe, Vinicius Junior has been very good of late and will look to carry on that form. He has created 30 chances and succeeded in 34 of his attempted dribbles at a 53% completion rate.

Differential Pick

Alvaro Negredo – Alvaro Negredo will be a tricky player for Real Madrid to deal with owing to his presence in the box. Negredo has 7 goals and 3 assists for Cadiz this season and will look to exploit an injured Real defence. He has created 17 chances, pulled off 19 shots on target and succeeded in 22 attempted dribbles at a 69% completion rate. He has also scored 2 goals with his right foot, 3 with his left and 2 with his head which adds unpredictability to his game.

CDZ vs RM Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Ledesma
Defenders – Marcelo, Varane, Nacho
Midfielders – Kroos, Asensio, Jonsson, Mari
Forwards – Benzema (C), Negredo, Vinicius (VC)

Likely Winner:

Cadiz would not have been looking forward to this game but after Getafe’s result against the reigning champions, they will know that they can get something out of this game as well. Raphael Varane’s return to the side will be a boost for Zidane’s men but he can not be counted on to make a huge impact on his first game back. But it can be safely said that all hopes of retaining their La Liga title can be given up should Real fail to win this one. Cadiz would love to be the David to Real’s Goliath as they help Atletico Madrid edge closer to their much-awaited title.
