Here, we will be providing fantasy football tips and will mention those players who should not be missed.
Kurbonali Babaev should be an automatic choice among the goal-keepers. His ball carrying abilities are phenomenal and also assists his defenders to a good extent.
In the defensive unit, Firdavs Chakalov, Khurshed Beknazaaro and Alisher Barotov form a good composition. Kuktosh, who netted three goals in their last fixture definitely know the art of defense.
Among the mid-fielders, going with the likes of Sanzhar Rikhsiboev and Sobirdzhon Kholmatov will be considerable choices, Sanzhar has already netted a goal in the competition and has been a helping hand for his fellow strikers. Kholmatov from Khultosh has also forged a goal that pipped us to go for the latter.
Talking about the strikers, Dilshod Bozorov and Andrey Sidorov are the two ace choices from Khujand. Meanwhile, considering one between D Edgovov and A Sultonov from Kuktosh could be a smart choice.
