Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Karim Benzema – Benzema has been having an excellent season with Real Madrid and has 20 goal-contributions (15 goals and 5 assists) in his 23 starts. He has dispatched 39 shots on target and will ask questions off of the Celta Vigo defence. Benzema is also in amazing form with 6 goals in his last 5 games.

Iago Aspas – The 33-year-old has 17 goal contributions (9 goals and 8 assists) in his 23 La Liga starts this season. He has 53 chances created and has completed 47 successful dribbles with a completion rate of 71%. He also has 2 assists in his last 3 games including the pass that saw Celta score a late equalizer against Real Valladolid.

Differential Pick

Lucas Vazquez – Lucas Vazquez can slot in anywhere on the right flank and has been often deployed in the right-back position. He has created 44 chances from there and has 6 goal contributions (2 goals and 4 assists). Vazquez has succeeded in 27 attempted dribbles with a completion rate of 71% while also whipping in 23 accurate crosses. He has done his defensive duties as well with 31 successful tackles, 28 clearances and 18 interceptions. He has 2 assists in his last 4 games as well with one against Atalanta and one in their draw against Real Sociedad.

CEV vs RM Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Villar
Defenders – Mendy, Vazquez (VC), Ramos
Midfielders – Nolito, Tapia, Kroos, Modric
Forwards – Aspas, Vinicius, Benzema (C)

Likely Winner:

Real Madrid will look at this as a tricky fixture but will back themselves to win the CEV vs RM Today Match Prediction. Real have a great defensive record having conceded just 22 goals in 27 games in La Liga and can go above Barcelona into 2nd place before their game, adding more pressure. Celta Vigo can go within touching distance of the European spots with a win but it won’t be easy as Real Madrid have lost only 4 of their last 27 games. History hasn’t been on their side either and they haven’t beaten their opponents since January 2017.
