RM vs CSK Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Real Madrid will be finishing off their group stage games with a match at Santiago Bernabeu against Russian champions CSKA Moscow, tomorrow in Madrid, on Wednesday night (IST).
The 2-0 win over AS Roma on the last matchday put the Madrid side well and truly in control of the group. With 12 points from the first 5 games and a vast head to head record over the Italian outfit, the reigning European champions are guaranteed to win the group ahead of last year’s beaten semi-finalists.
The unravelling of events under Julen Lopetegui’s managership at the Bernabeu is well documented and for that matter, the reign of Santiago Solari is still new.
However, the way results have been achieved in the past few games, like the 0-2 win away against Roma and even in the last match Huesca in La Liga, there is suddenly some tenacity and perseverance in Los Blancos’ team.
Also, the season is not all doom and gloom despite a rather uncanny start to the new campaign. The most successful Spanish Club is only five points away from the reigning Spanish Champions Barcelona, a deficit which may be trimmed down in a matter of a few weeks.
CSKA Moscow were always going to fight the big odds to make into the knockout rounds of the Champions League. And things became crystal clear in the last round when they lost their home game 1-2 against Viktoria Plzen, and thus ended their fading hopes of qualifying for the last-16.
At the start of the seaosn, the qualification to the Europa League via Champions League group must have been a real target for manager Viktor Goncharenko. Because they are more equipped to deal with the profile of the team playing in the Europa League and there is every chance that they may make deep into that competition.
But the negative result in the last match has put even that target in a grave danger as they need to win at Santiago Bernabeu to achieve a Europa qualification.
Can visitors win at the Bernabeu?

RM vs CSK Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

While midfield will have Ceballos and Modric, while Sigurdsson and Vlasic will be from Moscow.

Not many changes in the team two, but we have two wing-backs. While llorente and Vazquez are in the midfield alonside a talented Asensio.

Madrid are expected to field a much-changed XI considering they have already qualified to the knockout stage as a group leader.
But we are expecting a positive result for the hosts and back them not to lose this game.
