FanTeam Weekly Monster tickets on offer in Champions League Fantasy

The Champions League returns this evening – and so does the world’s largest Fantasy tournament covering Europe’s footballing elite.

FanTeam‘s Champions League Fantasy tournament offers a guaranteed €100,000 prize pot, with the winner taking home €20,000.

Pay-outs extend all the way through the top 600, and there are plenty of weekly prizes on offer.

Latecomers to the game are in luck too.

FanTeam is currently offering a special bundle for new users, so late registrations will receive an additional Weekly Monster ticket worth €20.

That, in effect, means you’ll get €45 worth of value for just €25.

The advantages of joining now don’t end there either. Late registration opens up new in-game strategies, as managers can now optimise their picks across Gameweeks 2-6.

If you feel like trying out Daily Fantasy, but are not in the mood for an event that covers the entire group stage – tomorrow’s fixtures will also have two unique events to add even greater value, with FanTeam offering Early and Late games across three different buy-in options (1,10, 5,50 and 22,00) and excellent prize pools of up to 7.000€. Those can be found in the FanTeam Lobby.

FanTeam‘s Champions League event is very similar to Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

There’s the same 100m transfer budget, a 15-man squad and the standard three-player maximum from each team.

And the scoring system, with a few slight tweaks, is virtually identical, making it nice and easy to pick up and play.

Key differences only add to the experience.

Each Gameweek deadline is just ten seconds before the first kick-off, so there’s plenty of time to tweak your team after the teamsheets are announced.

And although you get two free transfers every Gameweek, you can roll them over to a maximum of four – if you’ve got the nerve and the patience.

FanTeam’s €100,000 Champions League Event runs for the six rounds of the tournament’s group stages, with €500 going to each Gameweek’s best manager and €1,000 up for grabs for the highest Gameweek score of the competition.

All that for an entry fee of just €25, with a maximum of 20 teams allowed per user.

Gameweek 2’s first matches kick off at 17.55 GMT this evening.

Here are some key players worth considering.

Aguero should start tonight’s Champions League match

In attack, Sergio Aguero (10.4m) could make hay at home to Dinamo Zagreb.

The Manchester City star was rested at the weekend, playing just 24 minutes of the 3-1 win at Everton.

So he should be very fresh to face a Zagreb side that are winless in their last 15 Champions League away matches (D2 L13), losing each of the last 12.

In midfield, Philippe Coutinho (9.0m) has the form to be the star of the show in one of Gameweek 2’s major encounters – Tottenham Hotspur v Bayern Munich.

The Brazilian has scored and assisted in back-to-back Bundesliga games and he’s always enjoyed facing Spurs, scoring three and setting up a further two in 12 appearances against the north Londoners.

At the back, Nacho (5.0m) should be a good value way into the Real Madrid defence.

He’s only in the team because of injuries to key assets on the left-hand side of Los Blancos’ backline, but he was superb in the weekend’s 0-0 draw at Atletico Madrid, both in defence and attack.

Zinedine Zidane’s side are finding some form since their disastrous 3-0 loss at PSG in Gameweek 1, and a home match against Club Brugge looks like a favourable fixture to continue that run.

    How's Maddison as an option?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Very good, wanted to buy him but waiting for injury news. The trick is will he start getting more attacking returns for fpl or Vardy is only "real" option?

        3 months, 21 days ago

        I think the Leicester mids might share points with Madders coming out top among them, but they'll be outscored by Pereira/Chilwell in points-per-million and Vardy in actual points (plus captaincy)

        Slide Mount + Cantwell/McGinn/Yarmo/CHO into the mix and it becomes a bit tougher to spend 7.1 on Madders. If he's the best fit for your squad, however, it's a no-brainer

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          3 months, 21 days ago

          Couldn't agree more. Everything you've said is true. Now it just depends how much someone is willing to risk it. Wait and see or buy him to be ahead if he starts delivering.

            If only one of them got in shooting positions more often, I'd have been all over him. The nailed guys (Madders and Tielemans) are creators while the non-Vardy shooters in the box rotate like crazy. I had high hopes for Perez as a member of the second group... But here we are 🙁

            1. iL PiStOlErO
              3 months, 21 days ago

              They can be great assets, time will tell. But for now if I was on WC would only consider Vardy/Pereira (maybe both) and Soy because of that price. Mads/Tielemans just need to start be more concrete

  2. Bird Raymond

    Looks like KDB is taking the Cantwell/McGinn decision out of mt hands for this weekend, just need to decide on Diop vs Tomori now!

      Hope you're aware that Fab is out for 2+ months and West Ham would have to play with a worse keeper than Adrian (who I don't consider bad though, just average)

      1. Bird Raymond
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Sadly I am, if Fab was fit I would definitely have played Diop. Leaning towards Tomori now.

    Where is the physio member with his assessment of KDB?

    Need your Insight!

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 21 days ago

      I'm a doc, but not sure what you'd like insight on here

      The professionals who examined and are treating him said they have no clue. Without giving any details on the groin injury itself, they've effectively masked when he could be back.

  4. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 21 days ago

    A) Maddison Pukki
    B) Cantwell Vardy

    to play pretty much every week

  5. Wings Fan
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    KDB + Barnes > Mcginn + Aubameyang (-4) ?

    1. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      What? Is there some KDB news?

  6. iL PiStOlErO
    3 months, 21 days ago

    WC used last week, could’ve been better could’ve been worse. Plan is to hold transfer for one week and then have 2ft during IB (maybe even -4). Just hope KdB will make it and double Norwich want become an issue already (will monitor closely game against AV).

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years

      Groin injury

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Ruled out of game tonight, no other news that I’m aware of

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Ok thanks .

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Hes probably out of the Wolves game

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Ok. Cheers. Definitely keeping if he's only missing one game

  8. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Would you play Lundstram every week with TAA & Otamendi with bench of Rico & Hanley?

    1. Shuko
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Yes, unless Lund is facing Pool, City etc, and Rico had easier opponent.

      PS. 5/5 my def 😀

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Cheers mate!

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Maybe rotate now and then with Rico, he also has some returns and for now I think the spot is his to lose

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Yes Lundstram/Rico rotation looks good

  9. EL tridente
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Which combo over the next couple of gameweeks?
    A) KDB, Tomori, Gilbert and Cantwell
    or
    B) Maddison, Mcginn, Soyuncu and Van Dijk

  10. Ferris Bueller
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC please (assumes KDB is fit come Saturday)?

    Pope 4.0
    VVD Soy Ota Lund Rico
    Salah KDB Mount Yarm 4.6
    Wilson Auba Tammy
    Bank £0

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      I would have sterling/Mahrez over salah for the next 4 if I was on wc. In fact Mahrez sterling and kdb triple up would be nice. Taa over vvd if possible. Maybe Mcginn over Yarmolenko.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Like it, I also went on wc with one city attacker, thats the risk but there are so many options out there now. And never minding tgeir run still not sure about double Che. GL

  11. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Keeping KDB is a bit of a risk as thats a lot of money benched. Martial owners were in a similar situation before the last IB and holders have been punished massively.

    1. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      yeah. don't think they will risk playing him anytime soon. should sell

    2. BoomXhakaLaca1
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Too hard to buy him back for some people

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        I dont get that. you sell him. buy him back for same player?

      2. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        How? At most he'll cost 0.2m more than you sell him for.

      3. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Literally 0.1 difference because he will guaranteed drop over the IB if he doesnt play against Wolves.

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      More of a risk to transfer him out for the sake of 1 gw. Cantwell and Lundstram are decent cover for a week. If confirmed out for longer term then will consider Mahrez

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        This

    4. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Sell and buy back is losing 0.1-0.2 millions and 8 points of transfers. Easily play Lundstram or whatever

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        we simply don't know when he is back and when he will play a full game
        no need to rush it for city squad as they got great replacements

    5. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Some context needed here

      Those who kept Martial for just one GW didn't make a mistake. It was said to be a minor injury and they actually said he had a chance of playing the next game. See what happened with Rashford, for instance.

      I agree there's a fine line between patience and stubbornness, but City has been quite clear with their injury estimations for a while now (except that Mendy bone bruise that bruised my season), so I think we can trust them for some more definitive news before GW9

    6. Bram
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Unless it's longterm I'll certainly not be selling him. 18 days from gw9 nothing yet to suggest he'll miss that (nothing yet to say he'll even miss this gw that I've seen).

      My "inspired" move to bring in Aurier last week, like many, hasn't helped but I still have Cantwell can play if KDB misses this with Lunds covering Aurier which again I imagine is common for many.

      PS I did sell Martial though but OGS seemed very cagey / none committal about when he'd be back so that was a bit different.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Im on the fence right now. Keeping could make sense but for me its at most 0.1 loss in price and if that means I can get another City asset instead for the Wolves games I think its worth the transfer.

  12. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Keep Aurier or Montoya? Will have TAA, Tomori and Soyuncu playing most weeks with Lundstram ready to step in some GWs

    1. Bram
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Lunds has a decent gw this one and Aurier should be back next. BHA def a bit meh but most are unless you have money to spend.

  13. bobinjo
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Do you think Sterling will be rested tonight lads?

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • 2 Years

      I hope so!

  14. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    How are Ayoze Perez & Harvey Barnes as options right now?

  15. JaydenLFC87
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Quick question.

    If I have done transfers for hits but press the WC in the same week will it removed the -4??

    Transferred KdB in for a hit didnt I

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Yes, it will remove the -4

    2. Bram
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      wc will remove any hits yes.

  16. teneighty
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    There goes my first choice captain out the window. Is Callum Wilson against a leaky Arsenal a good option?

  17. StayoutheSpiceZone
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    KDB...

    a) Leave
    b) Swap to Mount for Chelsea's nice run
    c) Swap to Saka for Arsenal's nice run and bank the cash for future Greenwood upgrades?

    1. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      b after friday pressers

    2. Bram
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      a - keep unless he's out at least past 19th Oct (gw8) assuming you have a sub. Presser should tell us more later as wedon;t even know he's out this gw yet.

  18. Disturbed

      Kdb to Mahrez is tempting but pep roulette an all that

      So maybe some Leicester coverage like Perez or telemans

    2. Bram
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Wait on KDB news - if out but not more than 1gw maybe change Dunk to someone you're happy to play this gw.

    Which players over the next GW´s?
    A) KDB, Tomori, Gilbert and Cantwell
    or
    B) Maddison, Mcginn, Soyuncu and Van Dijk

    1. Hurnt
      • 6 Years

      B as kdb injured

  22. Kung Fu Football
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    If KDB is indeed out this gameweek then my team will need major surgery also having Fabianski & Aurier, i could be looking at using my wildcard to avoid a -8 or even -12? Thoughts on this top heavy WC squad please? Thanks.

    Pope / Button
    TAA / Otamendi / Soyuncu / Lundstram / Rico
    Mane / Mount / Yarmolenko / McGinn / Saka
    Aubameyang / Aguero / Vardy

    1. Bram
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Looks decent. Not a fan of Mane over Salah but I can see nowhere painless to get the money from so I guess it's valid if you'd be happy capping Mane when Pool have the fixture.

      1. Kung Fu Football
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        I'd be 'ok' about it but tbh i don't think i will be capping a Pool player for some time? Auba & Aguero (maybe even Vardy or Abraham) look fine for some time?

        1. Kung Fu Football
