Defending champions Chelsea (CHE) will host Juventus (CHE) in their penultimate group stage game of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season at Stamford Bridge in the early hours of Wednesday, November 24. The Group H match will kick off at 1:30 AM IST.
CHE vs JUV Dream11 prediction
Juventus are one of the five teams yet to lose a match in the Champions League group. Chelsea, on the other hand, have lost one and that defeat incidentally came against the Turin-based club.
The game at Stamford Bridge however might end Juventus’ unbeaten streak as the Blues are in some form at the moment. Although Juventus, themselves, are coming off the back of three consecutive victories, Chelsea’s home form might make the difference, as they have scored 14 goals in their last four home matches across all competitions.
CHE vs JUV Dream11 team tips for UEFA Champions League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
The likes of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner have only resumed training recently after injuries and might miss the fixture. This makes Kai Havertz the forward to go with. Havertz have accrued 92 fantasy points from his last two Champions League matches and will certainly be a threat to a Juventus team that has struggled to keep a clean sheet.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Juventus’ Federico Chiesa is the most picked player for the fixture. Selected by 91.94 per cent of fantasy users, Chiesa has scored two goals in three Champions League matches and one of those strikes came against Chelsea. A creative talent who’s always in the game, Chiesa will be one of Juve’s biggest attacking threats.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Although Leonardo Bonucci is the most-picked defender for this contest, we recommend you to go with Reece James instead. The Chelsea full-back has scored two goals and has provided two assists in his last three matches across all competitions. He is also defensively sound and difficult to beat for opposition attackers.
For a goalkeeper, our recommendation for your fantasy team is Juventus’ Wojciech Szczesny. Chelsea are most likely to keep a clean sheet and are expected to trouble the Juventus goal more often than not, which makes Szczesny an ideal pick for this game considering he’s bound to make some saves while being in the firing line.
