Champions League

The best midfielders for UEFA Champions League Fantasy

The start of the UEFA Champions League group stage is less than a week away and the competition’s official, free-to-play Fantasy game is now live.

Champions League match tickets, Playstation 5 consoles and cash in the UEFA store are up for grabs, while Premium Memberships will also be dished out to the leaders in our Fantasy Football Scout mini-league (PIN: 65KAB8EHX307).

Having run down the stand-out goalkeepers and defenders in the first instalment of our position-by-position series, we now shine some light on the midfielders available in UEFA Champions League Fantasy this season.

Although the scoring system is strikingly similar to Fantasy Premier League, there is one important difference, as we saw with the defenders.

Every three balls a player recovers in a match gains them one point, which gives central and defensive midfielders a competitive edge that they’re missing in FPL.

Premium Midfielders (9-11.5m)

Heavy backing for Salah in emerging top 10k FPL managers

All seven of these premium midfielders need no introduction. One of the stand-out names is Bayern’s Serge Gnabry (10m), with his four-goal haul against Spurs the highlight of his 10-goal title-winning campaign last time out. With three goals and an assist already in his first three games this season, he looks set to keep up his blistering form. Bayern’s kind group games against Lokomotiv and RB Salzburg make him ever more appealing. 

Another Bundesliga gem is Jadon Sancho (10m), who is back fit ready for Matchday 1. He’s only getting better as he matures and after his 20 goals and 20 assists last season in all competitions, he’ll be in the points for Dortmund’s lightning attack sooner rather than later.

An FPL favourite and the joint-most expensive midfielder on the game, Mohamed Salah (11.5m) has five goals from four in the league so far and his permanent role as penalty taker should translate into even more points. None of the teams he faces has rock-solid defences and the home game against Danish minnows Midtjylland in Matchday 2 could be prime ground for a haul.

The other most expensive player is Kevin de Bruyne (11.5m), and although he only has one goal and an assist to his name so far after Manchester City’s shaky start, he’s expected to recover from an ankle injury to face Porto.

How De Bruyne and Sterling compare as FPL assets for 2020/21?

His class should produce points in City’s relatively easy group, while De Bruyne also has 25 ball recoveries in just three Premier League games so far, which could be another great source of points for the Belgian.

De Bruyne’s teammate and another man never far from the points, Raheem Sterling (10.5m) is one million cheaper and with six Champions League goals and three assists to his name last season, seems set to yet again score well for Pep Guardiola’s men.

Two former Premier League wingers make up the premium midfielders, with Philippe Coutinho and Angel di Maria both coming in at 9m.

Coutinho is firmly part of Ronald Koeman’s plans at Camp Nou, with flashes of brilliance already this season leading to one goal and two assists. The Matchday 1 fixture at home to Ferencvaros makes him particularly appealing.

Di Maria managed 12 goals and 23 assists last season in a PSG side that is only getting stronger. He’s always been a player who shines on the big stage and with a relatively kind group for a team of PSG’s calibre, he could be a shrewd premium pick.

Mid-priced Midfielders (6.5-8.5m)

The best midfielders for UEFA Champions League Fantasy

Fresh from winning La Liga’s Player of the Month, Barcelona’s next wunderkind Ansu Fati comes in at a kind 8m. Like Gnabry, he has three goals and an assist from his first three games this season and a team of Barcelona’s quality should have no issue in dispatching Ferencvaros and Dynamo Kiev with a few goals to spare. He’s arguably the pick at this price point. 

Alongside Fati are two players whose 2019/20 seasons were ravaged by injury. Marco Reus (8.5m) and Florian Thauvin (8.5m) could both prove to be bargains if they regain the form of yesteryear.

Reus has been a staple on the scoresheet in the Bundesliga and Champions League for eight seasons now in a Borussia Dortmund team stacked with quality and only getting better. Likely starting alongside Sancho and Erling Haaland, Reus will definitely be on the scoresheet this season.

Thauvin sat out the entirety of last season due to injury, but already has two goals and three assists in six league games as he returns to being Marseille’s talisman. Whenever the French side score, expect Thauvin to be near. 

Another returning from injury, this one being markedly shorter, is RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer (8.5m). Despite the German outfit’s wealth of attacking options, expect him to always occupy one of the spots. Constantly adding more goals and assists to his game as he’s moved to a more dominant central role, he also picked up 11 points for balls recovered last season.

Three hundred miles south on the other side of the Red Bull franchise, RB Salzburg’s Dominik Szoboszlai is nailed and has penalties as well as assists in his game, but with their fixtures, your money may be better spent elsewhere.

Club Brugge put in some great attacking performances last time out, and their league form suggests that they may be able to repeat this. Playing some less-than-reliable defences in Lazio and Dortmund may also help the case of Hans Vanaken (7m), who has three goals and five assists in eight Belgian Pro League games this season. Vanaken also has penalties in his locker and scored against Real Madrid last term. 

Finishing off the mid-priced options are Phil Foden (7m) and Lucas Ocampos (8.5m).

Foden is the cheapest way into Manchester City’s attack with their relatively easy group, but as any FPL fan will know, predicting Guardiola’s line-up week in week out is like trying to anticipate the weather with tea leaves – impossible, inefficient and a waste of everyone’s time and energy.

Ocampos is a key piece to Sevilla’s attack as they’ll be trying to top Group E, and also scored in the Super Cup against Bayern Munich. His propensity for a card has to be noted – he finished last domestic season with eight yellows and a red to his name. 

Budget Midfielders (4.5-6m)

Reliable 4.5m midfielders are hard to find in any Fantasy Football game but this season we could have two in the UCL Fantasy game: Zenit’s Wilmar Barrios (4.5m) and Lokomotiv Moscow’s Vladislav Ignatyev (4.5m).

Barrios is the better option through his positional security: he played every moment of Zenit’s Champions League campaign last season and recovered the ball 48 times, gaining 14 points in the process. This meant that as a 4.5m midfielder, he averaged just over four points a game in the group stages, something certainly not to be ignored.

Ignatyev has been in and out of the Lokomotiv team this season but has started their big games against Zenit and CSKA Moscow and is expected to be part of their first-team line-up for the Champions League. He also gained 13 points from balls recovered in 2019/20 and if he can repeat that this season, then Barrios and Ignatyev could be the core of some great UCL Fantasy seasons. 

The remaining seven budget midfielders that I’m going to discuss can be split into three categories.

First up, there are strong attacking assets from poor teams. Newcastle fans may remember Remy Cabella (6m), who’s now plying his trade for Krasnodar and has five goals and two assists in nine games so far this season, including two goals and an assist in their play-off matches against PAOK.

Cabella has the potential to be outshone by Club Brugge’s Krepin Diatta (5.5m), who has four goals from six starts so far this season and, as with Vanaken, faces some less than reliable defences in a very attacking side.

 

The best midfielders for UEFA Champions League Fantasy 1

Then there are the less exciting picks, the defensive midfielders from big teams who can be expected to hoover up the ball recovery points. Real Madrid’s Casemiro (6m) topped off his 16 points from balls recovered last season with a goal and an assist and is still a key piece for Zinedine Zidane’s side. Although not flashy, he could be a shrewd pick, averaging just short of five points a game last season.

Similarly, Liverpool’s Fabinho (6m) already has 30 balls recovered in four Premier League games this season and if he can bring that form into Europe, he could be a solid pick. 

Finally, there are the ‘watch this space‘ players.

The first of these is RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo (6m). He scored three Champions League goals last season and has started every game in 2020/21 so far but the return of Sabitzer and signings of Hwang Hee-chan and Alexander Sorloth leave his place in the side very much uncertain.

Atalanta’s latest signing, Aleksei Miranchuk (5m), has the potential to be the game’s biggest bargain if he can permanently replace Josip Ilicic in this Atalanta side, but having not yet played for the Italian club he can’t be trusted from Matchday 1.

Finally, there is Aleksandr Erokhin (5m). An attacking midfielder for Zenit who had a bit-part start to the season, Erokhin has played 90 minutes in their last two games and has three goals and two assists from just 249 league minutes – that’s an average of a goal contribution every 50 minutes or so. Zenit play first on Matchday 1 so we will know their line-up before the deadline and if he starts, he’ll have a place in this author’s team. 


Our guide to the best Champions League forwards will be published on Friday, while our Matchday 1 preview will follow early next week.

      It’s good

      Kane, Soucek & Dallas -> Saiss, Maupay, Rodriguez is an option

    Can I get a bit of advice after a rough couple of weeks?

    This is my team:

    McCarthy
    KWP / TAA / Taylor
    Salah / Son / KDB / Klich / Soucek
    Ings / DCL

    Bench: Mitchell, Justin, Davis

    Is it worth Wildcarding to this?

        Which do you prefer on WC?

        A) KDB, Brewster (Brewster would be a sub)
        B) Kane, Soucek (Soucek would be a sub)

          So word is that Bruno might be obliged to isolate following CR7's diagnosis... This is going to be one wild GW... I'm set. Just checked my bench and happy with the order. Not going to do the MotD challenge since I don't think I've ever watched the show live, but will be happily sat in my office chair Saturday mucking about and watching the scores roll in...

            1 month, 15 days ago

            On a WC, Hames is looking like an absolute bargain atm and a season keeper... however! with his late arrival back to the UK, Liverpool as an early ko and DCL and a pool defender already in my team, it’s making me feel uneasy as I certainly couldn’t bench him if I owned him.
            Is it too much of a risk to give the place to a chelsea mid (example) for a one week punt, switching it to hames the week after? Or am I over thinking it and should have him in straight away for another double digit home master class?

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Don't overthink things and just get the players you want long term. I wouldn't recommend booking in transfers immediately after wildcard.

              1. polis
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                This.

                Really no point in trying to second guess this season at the moment.

            2. Atimis
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Considering Puli myself, will yet wait for some pressers

            3. Dexters Laboratory
                1 month, 15 days ago

                Punts only work before Wildcards.. and rarely. There's always transfers that'll pop up that none of us planned for. Go with James if you want him long term

            4. Atimis
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Which one sounds best ?
              Assuming all will be fit and ready to start

              1. Robo, 5.5 def, Hamez, Grealish, Kane 343 + 0.5ITB

              2. 2x 5.5 def, Sterling, McGinn, Kane 343

              3. Robo, Saiss, Sterling, Hamez, Grealish 352

              Been also considering Puli over Hamez as a punt (?)

              1. Jimbo-Jones
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                1 for me

                1. Atimis
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  Been on that now

                2. 2OLEgend
                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    Agreed

                3. Atimis
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  Just worth keeping 0.5ITB in 1. or try to upgrade e.g. 5th mid?

              2. Jimbo-Jones
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                This a no-brainer, barring injury news?

                Bruno & Mitro --> Son & DCL for free?

                McCarthy
                TAA Doherty Justin Mitchell
                Salah KDB Bruno Podence
                Werner Mitro

                Brewster Soucek KWP

                Then eg Werner & Doherty -> Kane & 4.6 next week.

                  Choose any one (no other player from the team)
                  Semedo
                  Chilwell
                  Castagne

                  and why?

                  1. Miguel Sanchez
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    PVA - great fixtures and a chance he is on penalties

                    1. abhirup780
                      • 6 Years
                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      Will PVA start this GW?

                      1. Miguel Sanchez
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 4 Years
                        1 month, 15 days ago

                        He said he is back but let's see what Roy says

                  2. Jimbo-Jones
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    Chilwell when confirmed fit. Chelsea will get better defensively and he's on a lot of set pieces.
                    Castagne looks great going forward, but don't really trust Leicester defence.
                    Semedo (and Wolves) have a lot to prove at the moment before I went for him over the other 2

                    1. 2OLEgend
                        1 month, 15 days ago

                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      Would consider Reguilón also, Chilwell looks best from these if fit

                    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      Chilwell or PVA would be my pick

                    4. FourLokoLeipzig
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      Semedo of those three - best defence, best short-term fixtures, and an inherently more attacking role as wing-back. I agree with Atimis that Reguilón is also worthy of consideration, but it would be good to wait a couple of weeks to see how advanced he’s allowed to play and whether rotation could be an issue. At least it’s an easy and non-urgent switch if he turns out to be the better pick

                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      What would you do with 2 FT and 2m ITB?
                      Thinking of Podence -> Grealish and bank the other FT.
                      Any suggestions?

                      McCarthy
                      TAA - Saiss - Taylor
                      KDB - Bruno - Son - Podence

                        Yep Jack is good. Zaha if you're feeling punty with the good fixtures

                      Who would you sell first out of

                      Werner

                      or

                      KDB

                      Any ideas would be welcomed

                        Werner easily

                          Werner I would say.
                          KDB is still a season-keeper for me

                          Werner but hold fire until we hear about KDB's 'injury' in case it's going to keep him out a couple of weeks

                        Choose one:
                        1) Robertson, Maupay, James Rodriguez
                        2) Saiss, Brewster, KDB

                            Hard one that, but I'm leaning against 1.

                          why are people going Ayling over Dallas? I dont see the difference?

                              Maybe he looks like scoring or assisting more, whereas Dallas is playing higher up the pitch imo, depending on Bielsa's formation. Yeah not much in it really.

                              They are practically equal....maybe Ayling because he looked more of a threat against Liverpool

                              Lots prefer Dallas. Both good picks

                            To bring Salah back into my team I would have to downgrade either of the following:

                            A) Remove Jorginho for Soucek
                            B) Remove Justin for Ayling / Dallas

                            Which of the two please?

                              A super easy

                                Thanks. You think Justin is a good defender pick?
                                I’m just worried about Leicester’s lack of clean sheets

                                    Both options are good i think to do, Justin will lose spot in few weeks.

                                  I’ve gone for Chris Wood over those 2. Going against the template has done me wonders

                                      And not listening to people does me wonders too.
                                      Dyche has had a couple weeks on the training ground to smooth out some little things. They’ll do ok from now on you’ll see.

                                        Maybe. Maybe not. Quite an unnecessary risk i think. It's not like Maupay is highly owned. He's still a differential but in a much more attacking side.

                                          Burnley top of the season ticker, Wood is their talisman and penalty taker and I’m sure they’ll get into form so it’s a very calculated decision which I think will pay off. I don’t get high ranks following the crowd

                                              1 month, 15 days ago

                                              top? I dont like their fixtures at all, Taylor is gone after this week

                                              1. Agger

                                                Yeah top of the attacking ticker. It’s wrong on current form because it’s done before the season starts. But I still like Wood as an option.

                                                I’ve gone Konsa over Taylor

                                                    Hey hopefully it works out for you but u can't really say it's a calculated decision. You're basically hoping they start playing better after the international break. They've given no indication that they will improve. It's not like they've faced particularly tough opponents recently

                                                  Yeah and burnleys playing style doesn't give them a lot of pens. And maupay has 5.3% ownership. That's not really following the crowd

                                      How do these moves sound for -4?

                                      KDB, Werner, Foden --> Kane, Son, James Rodriguez

                                          1 month, 15 days ago

                                          Looks good, but would prolly do 2 of them to avoid -4 for this week, and do one of those next week.

                                        Hello,

                                        This might Appear straight forward. But something is telling me to keep Werner.

                                        Which moves should I make please.

                                        2FT

                                        Saiss LWB again? Was going to bench for Mitchell but looks like PVA is back.

                                          7. I see Jiminez, Brewster and Foden as the weak points. Brewster is an enabler I get and he may deliver but there are low'ish priced forwards out there that are delivering already.

                                        Was thinking KDB > Sterling to allow an easy route back in but remember last time KDB was out City looked toothless.
                                        Stay away from City for now?

                                          City’s next 5 fixtures aren’t particularly great so it’s not the worst decision going without

                                          Apropos of nothing, it seems like the number of FPL "experts" with podcasts and youtube videos is really getting ridiculous lately and most of them barely know what they're talking about. Nice work if you can get it I suppose...

                                            The last Official FPL podcast was horrendous, the guy on there said teams like Everton don’t have many international players.. almost their entire squad are internationals now. He said a few other nonsensical things so I unsubscribed. They understand FPL but not football

                                            Yeah it's really mushroomed along with the popularity of the fpl.

                                            Some of them are quite good and worth a watch if you have the time though.
                                            Each to their own i guess,at the end of the day nobody is forcing you to watch any of em.

                                            Nobody has or should have a monopoly on fpl commentary.

                                            No problem with some of the pods but the ones who are doing it full time are stealing a living. Especially when i can't think of one full timer who is actually any good at the game .

                                            Midfield and frontline is fine. I would go for Ings or Grealish over Jimenez

                                              Also not sure who to ship to make room for Grealish.

                                              Ings vs Jimenez is a tough call though...

                                            Agree with Holmes - not sure I would have Jimi on a WC now. Wolves look like a side needing time to gel.
                                            Brewster + Grealish (for Jimi+Biss) and play 352, or 442 if a midfielder is injured? Just a thought.
