BAY vs MCI Dream11 team tips
Top Tip: Best forward
Erling Haaland is the top forward to watch out for in the BAY vs MCI clash. The new Manchester City striker, who arrived in a £51m deal from Borussia Dortmund, has five goals and one assist in seven games against Bayern Munich and will look to add to the count on Sunday. The Norwegian attacker is available for 10 credits.
Top Tip: Best midfielder
Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry will undoubtedly be someone fantasy managers will draft into their teams. With 64 goals and 40 assists in his Bayern career, Gnabry will look to make his mark when facing the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Rodri in the midfield engine room. The 27-year-old, listed as a midfielder, starts at a price of 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Matthijs de Ligt had a confident debut for Bayern Munich against DC United, and thus, is the pick of the defenders for this fixture. Priced at 8.5 credits, fantasy players can confidently draft in the Netherlands defender, who not only is adept at defending but can head in goals via set pieces. De Ligt’ major task, however, will be keeping Erling Haaland in check.
For the goalkeeper spot, picking Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer is a no-brainer. Neuer is an experienced custodian, averaging 2.3 saves per game and over 300 clean sheets in his football career. The German goalkeeper comes at a cost of 8.5 credits.
BAY vs MCI probable playing XI
BAY (probable XI): Manuel Neuer (captain and goalkeeper); Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Theo Hernandez; Noussair Mazraoui, Joshua Kimmich, Marcel Sabitzer, Alphonso Davies; Thomas Müller, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane
MCI (probable XI): Ederson (goalkeeper); Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake, Joao Cancelo; Kalvin Phillips, Rodri, Kevin de Bruyne (captain); Riyad Mahrez, Haaland, Silva
