Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: AS Roma v. Inter Milan Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

AS Roma and Inter Milan both have a lot to play for in this matchup, and this should undoubtedly be the most thrilling matchup Sunday. Roma might have the edge of playing at home, and they also arrive into this contest on a three-game winning run that has them quite close to securing a spot in next year's UEFA Europa League. Inter's ambitions are even bigger, however, as they currently sit just six points behind Juventus and could shrink the gap to three points with a win. Inter have also lost only one of their last five games in league play (W3, D1, L1). This is a huge game that could prove to be decisive in both the title race, and the quest for a UEFA Europa League spot.

Top Picks

Lautaro Martinez, Inter Milan: Martinez didn't score last game, but he should be considered as Inter's main goal-scoring threat as long as Romelu Lukaku is sidelined with injury. He forms a great partnership with Alexis Sanchez and could be a great choice for captaincy duty. He has 13 goals and three assists in 30 league appearances.

Edin Dzeko, AS Roma: Dzeko is one of the most expensive players at 10.5 credits, but he is more than worth the price as Roma's main offensive threat. The Bosnia international found the back of the net against Verona on Wednesday, and he has 15 goals in 32 league appearances for the Giallorossi side.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Lautaro Martinez
  2. Edin Dzeko
  3. Alexis Sanchez
  4. Ashley Young
