Totel Football – The Scout Selections

With the Champions League Semi-Final first leg between Bayern Munich and Barcelona kicking off in just a few hours, it’s time to turn our attentions to TotelFootball as we look to European Fantasy football to hopefully earn us a few bob.

If you’re new to TotelFootball, you can still sign-up and enter our Fantasy Football Scout Private Pool in order to stand a chance of winning this week’s free bet prizes. In addition, any new sign-ups immediately get themselves a free £10 bet with which to play the Main Pool game, which tonight has another £500 prize pool to compete for.

Read on for details of the current Private Pool standings and more on how you can get involved and our player picks for the Final Series. For the full details on TotelFootball, check our earlier article.

Don’t forget that, with the deadline for tonight’s game 7.45pm, we can tweak with our squads after the official squad lists are published.

The Fantasy Football Scout Pool – Current Standings

Ali Kaz leads the way after racking up 86 points in the previous round. His decision to triple up on the Bayern backline paid dividend with a 30 point return, while Dortmund’s Felipe Santana mirrored Cristiano Ronaldo’s 13 point haul as Ali Kaz moved to 329 points, just one ahead of Optimus, who racked up 85 points last time out. He also picked three Bayern players at the back (Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm and Dante Bonfim) while Ronaldo, Marco Reus and Zlatan Ibrahimovic combined for a cool 33 points with three goals and a pair of assists between them. Jkane89 tumbles down to third, then, but is just two points off the summit on 327 points.

FFS: Final Series Selections

This evening’s deadline brings with it a tactical twist and one which is likely to have a significant say at the top of the Scout Pool. Once our 15-man squads are submitted for the semi-final first legs, Fantasy managers have no more trades available – essentially, our selections not only account for this Tuesday and Wednesday but for next week’s second legs and also the final, taking in a total of five matches.

The decision, then, is whether to load up on the two teams you reckon will progress to the Wembley showdown on May 25 or spread the risk in order to ensure you have a minimum number of participants. Given that all four teams have a realistic chance of reaching the final, achieving a balance looks tricky – at this point, though, it’s all or nothing and with that in mind, we’re siding with the Spanish teams to progress.

Now we’re down to the last four, Totelfootball have upped the player quota, meaning we can select up to six per team without incurring any points penalties. In goal, we’ve opted for Victor Valdes, with uncertainty still surrounding the Real Madrid keeper situation, this seems the safest option. Our 10 outfield players are equally distributed between Barcelona and Real Madrid, then; Barca full-backs Jordi Alba and Daniel Alves get the nod for their attacking potential, while Madrid’s Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane offer a security of starts for Jose Mourinho’s backline.

In midfield, once again we opt for two players from either side. Xavi and Andres Iniesta get the nod for Barcelona, while Mesut Ozil and Angel Di Maria are our preferred combination for Madrid. Up top, it has to be Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line. Messi is expected to be reinstalled to the Barcelona XI after a recent thigh problem and with the pair potentially having three games apiece to wreak havoc, it seems far too risky to go without either.

Although tonight is the final round for the Scout Pool, it’s worth noting that there will be a six-a-side competition for each remaining fixture – these are pay-to-play and have no bearing on the FFS competition.

        Just as a little barometer here, how many people here want Barca to lose? I would imagine a lot, and I wonder why they've become so unpopular...

                          They are too obsessed with the champs league like Mourinho said. Also sick of them getting all the decisions.

                            People like change. If you are not a Barca supporter do you really want to see them lifting the CL time and time again?

                            Messi is always brilliant to watch as are Iniesta and Xavi but it's much more interesting to have strong competition throughout. Dortmund for example have been a breath of fresh air in the CL this season.

                                                    Carrick. I know this wont be popular because everyone think Busquets is some god. But all he does is play the easy pass and hold position. Defensive midfielder for the world's best team isn't too hard

                                                        Busquets is excellent technically, he just does't stand out because those around him are more so.

                                                        Has won the Euros and the World Cup as well. Carrick has never even been first choice for England.

                                                            That is true but I think Busquets is a passenger, so to speak
