Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Udinese v. Juventus Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Juventus are just one step away from winning their ninth consecutive league trophy. The Old Lady are coming off a big 2-1 win over Lazio their last time out, and that pushed their undefeated streak to three games, though it was their lone win in their last four. Meanwhile, Udinese are in 16th place with 36 points and just four points above the red zone. Lecce already played their MD35 contest, but the Udine-based side shouldn't be complacent about their chances of avoiding the drop – a race in which they seem to get involved year after year. They have won just one of their last five league games (W1, D2, L2), so they must improve in order to have a shot at stealing points against the best side in the league.

Top Picks

Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus: CR7 made history with his brace against Lazio, as he became the first player to score at least 50 goals in Premier League, La Liga and Serie A. However, he has also been an absolute stud in most fantasy formats. The Portuguese has hit the net nine times in the past eight matches and 30 in total during the current Serie A campaign.

Paulo Dybala, Juventus: Dybala has notched four goals and two assists after Serie A resumed, and he has showed improved chemistry playing alongside Ronaldo. The former Palermo star also has 19 chances created and 19 shots in his last seven appearances.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo
  2. Paulo Dybala
  3. Rodrigo De Paul
  4. Juan Cuadrado
