Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Cristiano Ronaldo – Cristiano Ronaldo is back in contention to start his absence was very well highlighted in Juve’s game against Atalanta. He has 25 goals and 3 assists in 25 starts this season while creating 33 chances, pulling off 61 shots on target and succeeding in 49 attempted dribbles at a 64% completion rate.

Paulo Dybala – The Argentine international has returned to full fitness and will look to carry on his impressive campaign. He has 3 goals and 2 assists in just 9 starts so far and has already created 26 chances while maintaining a pass accuracy of 88%.

Differential Pick

Aaron Ramsey – Ramsey has been struggling for starts of late but due to fixture congestion, he might finally get a chance. The Welshman has been out of favour at Juve for the most part but still managed good numbers. He has 6 goal contributions (2 goals and 4 assists) in 12 starts this season. He has also created 34 chances and succeeded in an impressive 82% of his attempted dribbles. Ramsey’s cross accuracy is 52% which is much higher than average and boasts a pass accuracy of 87%.

JUV vs PAR Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Buffon
Defenders – Sandro, Danilo, de Ligt
Midfielders – Ramsey, Hernani, Man, Brugman, Mihaila
Forwards – Ronaldo (C), Dybala (VC)

Likely Winner:

Juventus should win this game with ease as Parma has been in very poor form of late. They have won just 3 out of 31 games, drawn 11 and lost 17. Subsequently, the Bianconeri will look to bounce back after a disappointing result against Atalanta and the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the side is an added boost for them. Parma has also conceded 63 goals in 31 games this season averaging about 2 goals conceded per game while Juve is one of the highest-scoring sides in Serie A so far.
