SJ vs LAF Dream11 | Dream11 Grand League Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Western Conference leaders Los Angeles FC will be in action this week as they host San Jose Earthquakes in the regular season of Major League Soccer at Banc of California Stadium.

MATCH Info: Major League Soccer
When: August 22, 2019, 08:00 AM
Where: Vodafone Arena


Team News:

Los Angeles FC:

  • Javier Perez and Mohamed El Monir have been ruled out for the hosts.
  • Centre-back Walker Zimmerman will serve a one-game ban following his dismissal in the last match.
  • In addition, the duo of Pablo Sisniega and Alejandro Guido is listed as questionable and will be assessed before the game.
  • Tristan Blackmon is expected to cover for the suspended Zimmerman at the back.
  • Mark-Anthony Kaye will miss the Los Angeles Derby on Sunday if he gets a booking against San Jose. Considering his importance to the team, Bob Bradley may look to avoid that scenario and could go with Lee Nguyen in the midfield.

San Jose Earthquakes:

  • Judson received his 5th booking in the last game and will be serving a ban here.
  • Anibal Godoy is fully fit now and is expected to take the place of suspended Judson in the midfield.
  • No more changes are expected from the visitors.

SJ vs LAF Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:

Carlos Vela: The Mexican superstar is a front runner for the coveted MVP this season. In fact, the former Real Sociedad star looks the only viable choice at the moment because of his high standards this season.

Goals, assists, passing, he has been phenomenal from whatever aspect you see his performances from.

This season:

  • Games: 24
  • Games Started: 24
  • Minutes: 2149
  • Goals: 24
  • Assists: 15

Diego Rossi: Though keeping with up Vela is hard this season, Diego Rossi has been proving to be more than a spear-carrier in this team. The 21-year-old has scored some very important goals this season and will look to do so in the next game as well.

This season:

  • Games: 25
  • Games Started: 24
  • Minutes: 2121
  • Goals: 13
  • Assists: 05

More options from Los Angeles FC:

Adama Diomande: The size, the speed, and the skill level, he is a complete package. The 29-year-old is in good scoring touch as well.

  • Games: 20
  • Goals: 08
  • Assists: 06

Chris Wondolowski: The two-time MLS Golden Boot winner is a no-nonsense player who doesn’t flutter his feet around players, and believes in executing things in a simple manner.

He will be the biggest threat for LAFC in this game.

This season:

  • Games: 24
  • Games Started: 17
  • Minutes: 1448
  • Goals: 10
  • Assists: 01

SJ vs LAF Dream11 Grand League Scenarios:

Must have, whether Los Angeles win or not!

  • Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi from LAFC
  • Magnus Eriksson and Valeri Qazaishvili

These four players are expected to be the biggest influencer in the game.

Sample Team 1:

  • Goalkeeper: Miller
  • Defenders: Blackmon, Harvey, Jungwirth, Thompson
  • Midfielders: Kaye, Blessing, Qazaishvili, Yueill
  • Attackers: Rossi, Vela

Captain: Vela
Vice-captain: Rossi


Sample Team 2:

  • Goalkeeper: Miller
  • Defenders: Blackmon, Harvey, Jungwirth, Thompson
  • Midfielders: Blessing, Qazaishvili, Yueill
  • Attackers: Rossi, Vela, Diomande

Captain: Vela
Vice-captain: Rossi

Or you can switch between these two players as well.


Sample Team 3:

  • Goalkeeper: Miller
  • Defenders: Blackmon, Beitashour, Segura, Thompson
  • Midfielders: Atuesta, Qazaishvili, Yueill, Eriksson
  • Attackers: Rossi, Vela

Captain: Rossi / Vela
Vice-captain: Rossi / Vela / Atuesta

Or you can switch between these two players as well.


If it’s a draw:

If it’s a score draw, choose the aforementioned players still, but for the stalemate, Eduard Atuesta and Latiff Blessing from LAFC, and Cristian Espinoza and Jackson Yueill are worth considering.

Sample Team 4:

  • Goalkeeper: Vega
  • Defenders: Blackmon, Harvey, Kashia, Thompson
  • Midfielders: Blessing, Atuesta, Qazaishvili, Yueill
  • Attackers: Vela, Wondolowski

Captain: Wondolowski / Vela
Vice-captain: Wondolowski / Vela
