KBFC vs CFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Alvaro Vazquez has scored the most goals for Kerala Blasters in ISL 2021-22, with five goals in 17 matches. The Spanish forward has earned 521 fantasy points and will look to open his account against Chennaiyin in style.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Kerala Blasters’ Adrian Luna is our recommendation for the midfielder spot. The KBFC captain has been the chief outlet of goals for his team this season, registering four goals and six assists in 17 games. With 795 fantasy points to his name, the Uruguayan is a proven match-winning player for fantasy players.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Among the defenders, Slavko Damjanovic can be a handy pick in fantasy football teams. The CFC centre-back has been one of the best-perfoming defenders for Chennaiyin, registering 23 interceptions, 83 clearances and 41 blocks in 18 matches. The Serbian comes at a cost of 8.5 credits.
For the goalkeeper spot, Prabhsukhan Gill should be the preferred choice over CFC’s Debjit Majumder. Gill has kept the most clean sheets this season, five, and made 34 saves in 14 matches this term thus amassing 309 fantasy points in the process. Majumder, on the flip side, has kept just one clean sheet this term and will be tested heavily by KBFC’s forwards.

KBFC playing XI (probable): Prabhsukhan Gill (goalkeeper), Sanjeev Stalin, Bijoy V, Marko Leskovic, Sahal Samad, Adrian Luna (captain), Harmanjot Khabra, Ayush Adhikari, Lalthathanga Khawlhring, Chencho Gyeltshen, Alvaro Vazquez
