    2) Suarez will have field day against Boateng and Benatia needs a walker these days.

    3) My team is very versatile and Wings won't know what hit him. My players can keep possession if need be and will be hitting him with fast and furious counter to catch his slow defense out of position and we will create so many chances that even god mode Handa won't save him.

    4) The combination of Suarez, Reus, Di Maria, Coutinho will run riot on him and I have solid back line to in the words of a wise man will keep it tight.

    5) And lastly I'm a superior tactical mind.

    Defense: Admittedly, BJ has two great CBs. But Ricardo Rodriguez has had a fairly bad year for Wolfsburg. Zabaleta is on the decline, and his physical style of play means he has always struggled with extremely technical dribblers. When Zabaleta faced Ronaldo in the CL a few years ago, Ronaldo dribbled past him with ease over and over again. Expect the same here.

    My defense has Boateng, who has improved massively under Guardiola and is a top-5 CB in the world. Benatia was the best CB in Europe in his last season at Europe, and his star has fallen only because of injuries. When healthy he is still an absolute monster. Azpilicueta is the best one-on-one defender in England and will handle the overrated Coutinho with ease. And Jordi Alba is simply one of the best LBs in the world.

    Midfield: This is the clearest difference between our two sides. I simply don't see how BJ has the better midfield. Koke might be as good as Verratti, but Busquets is definitely better than both of them he's the world's best DM. And Matic has had a horrendous season he's been one of the Chelsea's worst players this season. He stands no chance against Ozil.

    Attack: My attack is more well-rounded. I have goalscoring (Ronaldo, Benzema), dribbling (all of them), pace (Ronaldo, Benzema, Willian), passing/creativity (Ozil, Benzema), and defensive steel (Willian). BJ's attack lacks the latter two, since Suarez, Reus, Di Maria, and Coutinho are all vertical players they primarily dribble forward and need a #10 to supply them with passes. BJ's team lacks that.

    But if even that doesn't convince you, remember that Ronaldo-Ozil-Benzema played together for multiple years at Real Madrid. They have a history of success. Among BJ's attack, only Coutinho and Suarez have ever played together, and even then they were only successful for one year. It's speculative to say they will link well together.

    Tl;dr: I'll win mainly because of 1) Zabaleta vs. Ronaldo 2) the clear superiority of my midfield 3) proven success and chemistry with Ronaldo, Benzema, and Ozil.

    Wings has one of the best squads - if not the best - in my opinion, even though I'm not a fan of the double pivot of Bus and Verrati as I feel they are too similar or just can't work in real life but that's my only quarrel in his team selection and keep in mind that there has to be a weak spot(s) in every team with how the drafts work. The balance between the attack and defence is crazy good, I especially liked how there's a one very attacking full back on one side and a defensive minded one on the other.

    * I just based my choice on the players without reading what they wrote.

    Not an easy pick for me as BJ has an amazing CB duo,Rodriguez is a fine LB,Zabaleta is a worrying factor vs CR though.
    Matic is crap this season tbh,Koke is a fine player fo sho
    The attacking department is stellar...

    However Wings has Handa!
    Boateng can get humiliated easily tbh...the Messi rollercoaster anyone?!
    Benatia has been injured longer than anyone can remember... Concerning...
    However every other department is top notch...
    Alba and Azpiliwhatever are top full backs
    Busquets is a top DM when he isn't faking an epilepsy attack
    Veratti is the best Italian player atm
    Willian is Chelsea's top performer this year
    CR-Benzema-Ozil are top-top players

    Have to go with Wings,just because he has Handa
    Nah, srsly his mf pair is better I think,stronger mf's decide matches almost all the time
