Champions League Dropout XI: Liverpool Star And Man United Target Crash Out Of Europe’s Elite

Posted by

The best starting XI made up of players that are set to crash out of the Champions League.

With the Champions League now reaching the end of its first stage, there haven’t been many shocks in who will go through and who will end up in the Europa League or going home. Some of the players in this team aren’t yet out of the tournament, but the unpredictability of the final round means their inclusion is justified (but only just!).

GK: Jasper Cillessen – Ajax

The Dutch international and his teammates didn’t stand much chance at getting out of a group that contained both Barcelona and PSG, but a good final day result will see them move into the Europa League.

Maxi Pereira Benfica

RB: Maxi Pereira – Benfica

The Portuguese giants were one of Europe’s in form sides last season, but have seen themselves capitulate this term as they prop up the rest of Group C.

Aymeric Laporte Athletic Bilbao

CB: Aymeric Laporte – Athletic Bilbao

The Man United target may be highly-rated, but he could do little to help the Basque side from missing out on the next round.

Benedikt Howedes Schalke

CB: Benedikt Howedes – Schalke

Schalke could still make it through to the next round, but their thrashing at the hands of Chelsea last week has put their goal differential on the back foot.

Anthony Vanden Borre

LB: Anthony Vanden-Borre – Anderlecht

Anderlecht fell short despite some rocky form from both Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund, but they’ll at least be able to console themselves with a place in the Europa League.
