Those of us following our UCL daily tips last week would have done pretty well. Our top team placed in the money in most 50/50 leagues. Due its popularity, we’ve put together another recommendation for the four Champion’s League games this Wednesday (which have been grouped together with Man City vs Stoke). That means the games we have to choose from are:
Dortmund vs Benfica
Barcelona vs PSG
Man City vs Stoke
Our overall strategy is going to be based on taking less Barcelona stars than most players. It’s just very risky to blow huge parts of the budget on a team that may end up resting its stars, or at least withdrawing them early. On the other hand, Dortmund and Benfica should be going hammer and tongs to win that ti, and City will be looking to take three points.
Now for our recommended team! (Although please note that teams can be edited up until kickoff so be sure to watch out for last minute squad changes!!!)
GK: Willy Caballero (MCI) $6,000. Not cheap for a keeper but he really is the standout option this week. Stoke will surely struggle to score in Manchester.
D: Meunier (PSG) $4,600. Great value for a point scoring defender. He loads up on crosses and has a chance of grabbing an assist to make it three in a row.
D: Aurier (PSG) $4,600. We’re keeping it all PSG in defence. Might seem surprising against Barca, but in context of daily fantasy it’s the right call. Great value.
M: Messi (FCB) $11,400. Forget the situation, forget the price. When Messi plays in daily fantasy you need to draft him, just make sure he’s not rested before kickoff.
M: Dembele (DOR) $7,700. One of Dortmund’s most exciting players, who does it all over the field. A real stat filler and good selection for your team.
F: Sane (MCI) $6,600. Absolutely insane value when you consider his fantasy points tally in recent games (27,17,17 in last 3).
F: Schurrle (DOR) $6,800. A surprisingly consistent fantasy point scorer which is just the kind of player we need to compliment our team.
UTIL: Luisao (Ben) $4,200. Absolutely lit up in the first leg against Sporting and for this price it’s worth having a bet on him dong it again.
Totat team cost: $49,700
