CFC vs OFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22

Top tip: Best forward

Aridai Cabrera has been at the forefront of Odisha’s attack this term and is favoured as the top forward for fantasy players. The Spaniard has three goals to his name so far and will look to appease his 87.17 per cent fantasy owners with a convincing display against Chennaiyin FC.

Top tip: Best midfielder

If Odisha FC are to break through Chennaiyin’s defence, they will need the wizardry of Javi Hernandez in the midfield engine room. The Spaniard has three goals and two assists in five games, and has shown Odisha fans how much of a threat he is when influencing OFC’s attack. With 285 fantasy points, Hernandez is an undroppable choice for fantasy players in their midfield selections.

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

Chennaiyin FC have one of the most shrewd defensive setups in ISL 2021-22, and will pin their hopes on Reagan Singh to help the Marina Machans register a clean sheet against Odisha FC. The Indian centre-back has registered 18 tackles, 12 interceptions and 19 clearances, and will have the chief task of shutting down any approach from OFC’s Aridai Cabrera.

While OFC’s Kamaljit Singh has the most fantasy points (135), CFC’s Vishal Kaith stands out as a better pick for fantasy users. The 25-year-old custodian - who has conceded three goals - has made 12 saves this term while his counterpart Kamaljit has clocked 11 saves.

CFC vs OFC probable playing XI

CFC playing XI (probable): Vishal Kaith (goalkeeper), Ariel Borysiuk, Slavko Damjanovic, Narayan Das, Reagan Singh, Anirudh Thapa (captain), Vladimir Koman, Edwin Sydney Vanspaul, Jerry Lalrinzuala, Lallianzuala Chhangte, Lukasz Gikiewicz

OFC playing XI (probable): Kamaljit Singh (goalkeeper), Hector Rodas, Lalruatthara, Victor Mongil, Henry Antonay, Javi Hernandez, Vinit Rai (captain), Isaac Vanmalsawma, Isak Vanlalruatfela, Jonathas, Aridai Cabrera
