MCI vs CHE Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Manchester City vs Chelsea Champions League Live Score 29 May

Share

MCI vs CHE Dream11: This is what it all comes down to on the final day of club football as Manchester City takes on Chelsea in the Champions League final. Pep Guardiola’s only criticism so far has been that he has failed to win the UCL since his Barcelona days. But he can change all of that tonight. Chelsea has lifted this prestigious trophy on a magical night in Munich in 2012 and will look to go again. They did so back then under similar circumstances when they sacked Andre Villas-Boas midway as they did with Frank Lampard this season. It will be a close encounter between two sides who want a win desperately.

Date: 30th May, Sunday

Manchester City News

Injury Report and Unavailability:

• Guardiola is ready to go with no injuries for this game.

Expected Changes and Strategy:

• Man City will have a selection dilemma up front but his backline picks itself as Joao Cancelo can be seen at left-back.
• Rodri should get the nod over Fernandinho as Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva start on either side of him.
• Phil Foden will be desperate for a start but the youngster might have to start on the bench as Kevin De Bruyne could see a start in the False 9 role.

• Mason Mount has been excellent this season and will keep his spot in attacking midfield alongside Hakim Ziyech.
• Timo Werner will have to find his scoring boots for this game as he starts up front.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Kevin De Bruyne – Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Kevin De Bruyne is a player who lives for these occasions and will be the one to watch out for. He has 12 league assists, creating 92 chances, 48 successful dribbles and whipped in 39 accurate crosses. He has warmed up well with a goal and assist in his last outing against Everton.

Mason Mount – Playing in a largely misfiring frontline, Mason Mount has stood out. He has created an impressive 92 chances in the league, completing 43 dribbles and whipping in 60 accurate crosses at a 35% success rate. The youngster can become one of the biggest names in Europe if he steps up to this occasion.

Differential Pick

Ilkay Gundogan – Ilkay Gundogan has been Manchester City’s top scorer this season despite playing in central midfield. He has scored 13 league goals and has 2 assists, creating 44 chances. The German international has very good and has the potential to flip the game upside down. He has also played and scored in a Champions League final before and is no stranger to the big stage. Although he was on the losing side in that game, he can be the game-changer tonight.

MCI vs CHE Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Ederson
Defenders – Walker, Cancelo, James, Chilwell
Midfielders – De Bruyne (C), Sterling, Ziyech, Mount (VC)
Forwards – Mahrez, Werner

Likely Winner:

On paper, Manchester City should be the favourites to win the MCI vs CHE Today Match Prediction but there is no one to predict this one. All form goes out the window for these games like these and only the finer margins will dictate the result. While Man City search for their first Champions League trophy, Thomas Tuchel will be in the hunt for his own. City has already won the league this season and could make it a double. On the other hand, Chelsea will be looking for retribution after a very average season took a strange turn. Both sides have beaten the best in Europe to reach this stage and will leave everything out on the pitch tonight.
