SCEB vs HFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Hyderabad FC talisman Bartholomew Ogbeche has been in staggering form in the ongoing edition of ISL. The 37-year-old Nigerian has netted nine goals for the Nizams in ISL 8, accumulating 585 fantasy points this season. He is expected to add to his goal-scoring tally against East Bengal in Matchday 14.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Brazilian midfielder Joao Victor has been one of the standout players for Hyderabad FC this season. The HFC captain has controlled the tempo of midfield, helping his side play an attractive brand of football. Having already accrued 413 fantasy points in ISL 2021-22, one must pick Joao Victor in the fantasy team for this upcoming encounter.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Even though SC East Bengal have conceded a whopping 21 goals this season, Franjo Prce has been impressive for the Red and Gold outfit. The 25-year-old Croatian has been rock solid at the back, amassing 160 fantasy points so far. He is once again expected to play an important role for SC East Bengal on Monday if they are to continue their winning momentum.
Among the goalkeepers, Arindam Bhattacharya of SCEB will be the preferred choice over HFC’s Laxmikant Kattimani. Considering the form of both sides, Arindam has a much better chance of keeping a clean sheet against Hyderabad FC. At just 8.5 credits, he could be a valuable addition to any fantasy team and is also expected to fetch more fantasy points for this clash.
SCEB vs HFC probable playing XI
SCEB playing XI (probable): Arindam Bhattacharya (captain/goalkeeper); Amarjit Singh Kiyam, Adil Khan, Franjo Prce, Ankit Mukherjee; Darren Sidoel, Sourav Das, Wahengbam Angousana; Naorem Mahesh Singh, Thongkhosiem Haokip, Mohammed Rafique
