Liverpool vs Real Madrid – Top Fantasy Picks on BalleBaazi: Champions League Final 2021-22

Liverpool vs Real Madrid – Top Fantasy Picks on BalleBaazi: Champions League Final 2021-22

The stage is set for the Champions League final of the 2021-22 season. Two European giants are facing off as Liverpool play Real Madrid in Paris for the UCL trophy.

Real Madrid’s last Champions League final defeat came in 1981 against Liverpool in Paris, while Liverpool’s last Champions League final defeat was against Real Madrid in 2018.

Both teams share a longstanding history in the competition and with each other as well.

So, let’s have a look at the best players to pick on your fantasy team on BalleBaazi for this big final.


Alisson – 8.5

This was a close decision as both sides have excellent goalkeepers who have had a huge impact on their teams this season. However, Courtois did not perform well in the semi-finals against Manchester City, and Alisson is much better when it comes to distribution.

Alisson has averaged 4.7 long passes per game as well as 2.5 chipped passes per game, which allows Liverpool to play out from the back efficiently.

Real Madrid arguably have the best finisher in the world in Benzema, and Alisson’s performance will be key for Liverpool if they are to get a positive result in the final.


Trent Alexander-Arnold – 9

Trent Alexander-Arnold is a player who is very difficult to be dropped. He has had a superb season with Liverpool. In the Champions League this season, he has 3 assists to his name.

His passing is one of Liverpool’s most dangerous weapons and he averages a remarkable 6.6 accurate long passes and 5.1 chipped passes in the Champions League in 2021-22 .

Virgil Van Dijk – 8.5

After a slight injury scare in the FA Cup final, Van Dijk didn’t play in the Premier League as Klopp made sure to get his fitness back for the Champions League final.

He is a huge figure in this side, and Liverpool’s defence never looks the same without him. Liverpool’s defending against Wolves in the last game looked suspect, and Van Dijk’s absence was a huge factor behind it.

With Liverpool facing two of the best-attacking players in Europe in Vinicius and Benzema, Van Dijk’s performance will have to be on the highest of levels if he is to thwart Real Madrid in the final.


Luka Modric – 9

One of the hardest players to drop, Modric has once again been sensational for Real Madrid. The 36-year-old is ageing like fine wine, and his consistency is second to none.

His performances for Real Madrid in those heroic come back games in the knockout stages have been critical and his exquisite pass for Rodrygo against Chelsea is arguably the best assist in the Champions League this season.

Modric will be a key player as Madrid will aim to play through the Liverpool press and his passing range will also be a dangerous weapon to get in behind Liverpool’s high line.

Fabinho – 8.5

Liverpool fans will be glad that Fabinho is set to play the final after being out of contention for a while with an injury. He is a crucial part of this Liverpool side and his contribution in possession and out of possession is massive for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

He is excellent when it comes to reading the game and covering the spaces left by Liverpool’s offensive fullbacks.

With Thiago unlikely to be fit for the final, Fabinho’s distribution as a deep-lying midfielder will be key for Liverpool to penetrate Real Madrid.

Sadio Mane – 9.5

Sadio Mane has been Liverpool’s best player for some time now. Although he is naturally a wide player, his performances recently as a false nine have also been exceptional. His link-up play has been tremendous, and Klopp is likely to continue to play him in that position.

Mane has scored 5 goals in the Champions League this season and his clever movement and high work rate will be key for Liverpool if they are to trouble Real Madrid in the final third.


Karim Benzema – 10.5

It’s a no brainer to pick Benzema in your fantasy team on BalleBaazi. His significance in this Real Madrid side is arguably as huge as Cristiano Ronaldo’s was a few years back.

He has scored 15 goals in 11 Champions League games this season and more than the number of goals, the timing of his goals have been even more crucial.

In the multiple comebacks Madrid made throughout the knockout stages, the timing and importance of his goals and assists were indispensable.

He could be on the scoresheet again in the final and is a must pick for your team on BalleBaazi.

Vinicius Junior – 9.5

This season, Vinicius Junior has been one of the most consistent players for Real Madrid.

He has always been incredibly talented, but consistency was an issue in his game. However, under Carlo Ancelotti, he has reached a new level this season and is living up to his potential.

Vinicius has 6 assists and 3 goals in 12 Champions League appearances this season. Against Liverpool, Ancelotti is highly likely to utilize his pace to exploit the space left by Trent on Liverpool’s right flank.

Vinicius could be amongst the points and is a great pick for your fantasy team on BalleBaazi.
