Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: AC Milan v. Juventus Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

AC Milan are finding their top form down the stretch of the season, as they enter Tuesday's matchup undefeated in their last four games (W3, D1) and now sit just two points away from reaching a potential spot in the 2020-21 UEFA Europa League berth. Juventus, however, won't be easy opponent. The Old Lady are marching towards yet another league title and have won each of their last seven league games, while also owning a seven-point lead at the top of the standings. Juventus have also won three straight Serie A away matches and seem to have history on their side as well. Ahead of this derby, the Torino-based side have a clear edge in the all-time H2H record (W67, D57, L49) - an edge aided by six straight wins over the San Siro outfit.

Top Picks

Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus: Selecting Ronaldo as captain is as similar to the one used in contests when Lionel Messi is playing. If he is going to start, he should probably be selected as captain nine out of 10 times. The Portugal international has been one of the most decisive players in Serie A since the league resumed and has found the back of the net in all four league matches he's played since the restart.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, AC Milan: The Swedish forward found the back of the net during Milan's big win over Lazio while also setting up another of the team's three goals. The 38-year-old striker continues to create havoc on opposing defenses, and even though Juventus are a tough team to score against, Zlatan represents Milan's best chance of finding the back of the net in almost every game.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo
  2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
  3. Juan Cuadrado
  4. Douglas Costa
