Real Madrid (RM) open their La Liga 2022-23 account with an away game against Almeria (ALM) in the early hours of Monday, August 15 at Estadio Mediterraneo. The match will kick off at 1:30 AM IST.

RM vs ALM Dream11 prediction

The Spanish and European champions have been on the road a lot of late. But despite their tight schedule, they remain the outright favourites to beat a newly promoted Almeria side, who are set to be without their two first-team defenders in Juanjo Nieto and Ivan Martos.

For Madrid, they have a fully-fit squad to work with, meaning that Almeria are going to have a hard time coping with the defending champions. 

RM vs ALM Dream11 team tips for La Liga 2022-23

Top tip: Best forward

Karim Benzema. That’s it. One does not have to look anywhere else.

If his form is anything to go by, the Real Madrid captain is certain to get on the scoresheet on Monday. You might have to make some adjustments as he costs 10.5 credits, but since the returns are almost guaranteed, he is worth the shot.

Top tip: Best midfielder

Veteran midfielder Luka Modric should be one of the first names on your team. The 36-year-old is enjoying an advanced role under Carlo Ancelotti and given that Monday’s game might turn into a rather lop-sided affair in favour of Los Blancos, one can expect him to score or get an assist.

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

Goalscoring defender David Alaba is our pick for this spot. At just 8.5 credits, he remains an absolute steal as he will not only clinch added bonus for a clean sheet but could also accrue more points with his passes and tackling besides his propensity of making attacking contributions.

For a goalkeeper, Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois is the safest option to go with as the Belgian stopper is more likely to keep a clean sheet. One can consider Almeria’s Fernando Pacheco, but there could be a massive reduction in points if Madrid score more than four goals.

ALM vs RM probable playing XI

ALM playing XI (probable): Thibaut Courtois (goalkeeper); Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy; Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Luka Modric; Rodrygo, Karim Benzema (captain), Vinicius Jr

RM playing XI (probable): Fernando Pacheco (goalkeeper); Alejandro Pozo, Rodrigo Ely, Srdan Babic, Sergio Akieme; Cesar De la Hoz, Samuel Costa, Lucas Robertone; Fransisco Portillo (captain), Umar Sadiq, Largie Ramazani
