Champions League

UCL Fantasy: Tuesday review, Wednesday preview and tips for substitutes and captaincy

The UEFA Champions League and its Fantasy Football game have returned with a bang. If you had Angelino (€5.0m) in your team, Lionel Messi (€12.0m) as your captain or Charles de Ketelaere as a €4.5m option, then congratulations.

For those whose captains didn’t haul and are in need of some big-hitting substitutions, then that’s what this article is here for.

For the uninitiated, the UEFA Champions League Fantasy game allows managers to make manual substitutions and captaincy changes after the Tuesday round of games has taken place but before the Wednesday matches begin.

Last Night’s Review

The highest-scoring match of the night saw both Barcelona and Ferencvaros live up to expectations. This isn’t necessarily a signal that Barcelona look particularly strong going into this campaign – their easiest game is now behind them and next week’s visit to Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus will be a much sterner challenge.

Juve’s opponents from yesterday, Dynamo Kyiv, look to be stronger at the back than their Hungarian counterparts, so it’s probably worth avoiding the hype around Blaugrana until we’ve seen more. 

PSG were uncharacteristically terrible to lose to an Axel ‘Maldini’ Tuanzebe-inspired (€4.0m) performance by Manchester United and should recover comfortably in next week’s visit to Istanbul Basaksehir.

As with Barcelona, those that will inevitably pile on Angelino after his four-minute brace yesterday evening will do well to consider that this was RB Leipzig’s easiest group game and he’s unlikely to have the attacking freedom or lack of defensive responsibility we saw yesterday evening. 

Chelsea, Sevilla, Rennes and Krasnodar all looked fairly equally dull going forward in their Group E games, but it is good to note that Chelsea really are looking much more solid with Eduoard Mendy (€5.0m) between the posts.

Club Brugge lived up to expectations as a decent attacking force to beat a poor Zenit St Petersburg side in Russia, with the 4.5m pairing of de Ketelaere and Wilmar Barrios both putting in strong performances for different reasons. 

In the other game in Group F, a surprisingly powerful Lazio side swept aside Borussia Dortmund in Rome, although it was good to see Erling Haaland (€11.0m) open his account for the season early.

Captaincy

This author tends to have a rule with changing captaincy in UCL Fantasy: six points or less is worth a change, seven or more probably too risky.

Who to change to is the tough question for today. There is no longer a safety net after Wednesday’s matches – you have to get this one right. Luckily, there are a plethora of options from this evening’s games. 

Atalanta have the pick of the fixtures from an attacking point of view as they look to get back to the form that saw them score 13 goals in their first three games of the season. They are expected to start a front three of Alejandro Gomez (€8.5m), Luis Muriel (€8.5m) and Duvan Zapata (€9.5m) for their visit to Danish minnows Midtjylland and any of those should prove to be solid captaincy options. 

Premier league darlings Raheem Sterling (€10.5m) and Mohamed Salah (€11.5m) also have two solid fixtures. Salah beats Sterling for form but with Liverpool’s growing injury list, Ajax may look to capitalise.

Finishing off the captaincy options are the two safest options of the week. Robert Lewandowski (€12m) and Romelu Lukaku (€11m) both bring top form into these fixtures, although Inter’s game at home to Gladbach should give him more of an opportunity to produce a score to match or outscore Messi’s 11 from last night. 

Substitutions

Who to bring on and who to sub off is often a tough decision in UCL Fantasy and a decision that has to be made depending on the state of your squad. 

Just a few notes on substitutions for this evening. After Serge Gnabry (€10.0m) was ruled out of tonight’s game for Bayern Munich with a positive COVID test, make sure he’s out of your lineup. Also, watch out for news this afternoon of any more positive tests within the German giants – they are reported to have all been tested and be expecting results back at about 2pm UK time. For those with the likes of Joshua Kimmich (€6.5m) and Lewandowski on the bench, watch out for this news before you bring them on. 

Assuming Bayern don’t report back any more positive tests, perhaps think twice before subbing on any Atlético defenders if you have a strong line-up already – it’d be a surprise to see a clean sheet for Simeone’s side – but obviously the circumstances are different if you have a sea of one and two-pointers knocking about.

Luckily we will know if Sergio Ramos (€6.5m) starts for Real Madrid before the deadline as they play in the early kick-offs, so make sure you wait for that news if he’s sat on your bench. 

Aside from the news, be sensible with your substitutions – four or five points is normally enough to keep a player on the field for and don’t try and shoehorn on subs just for the sake of making them.

Good luck for tonight’s games, all!

      Depends on whether you need Bissouma to play. If you do, B; otherwise, A.

    Has McGinn slipped under the radar ? Looking like a decent cheap enabler

    1. ReindeerHotdog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Members area is really helpful for looking at key stats.

      McGinn looks good, especially for his price.

      Won't set the world alight but he's a great enabler to have. Was tempted to get March in as he looks good for 5m, but McGinn is in form, at a good team and hopefully the momentum of all those things makes him a good option for the next few weeks.

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        yip I compared him and whilst he sits deeper sone of his stats are very comparable ... for less money

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      4th best FPL prospect for a team likely to finish mid-table is a bit of a put-off, but form, price and fixtures are good.

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        taking corners and some set pieces ... ahead of the other 3 😉

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Do you think he is likely to score more FPL points than Grealish, Barkley or Watkins this season? Quite possible of course but I would put him behind those three myself.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            maybe ... but I have gone big up top with Kane, DCL & Aguero and am looking for a rotation with Biss as my 11th starter in a 343, or rotating with a defender in 433.

            Basically I will have to play a 4.5 defender, McGinn or Biss each week.

            Grealish & Barkley are a bit too expensive for what I need, so it’s not as simple as a straight comparison, but McGinn’s stats are very surprising 🙂

            Yea some, along with Jacky and Matty

      Hit 81pts this GW but with more than 3m ITB from KDB and barely 2 or 3 clean sheets all season, how's this for a WC?

      McCarthy,
      Chillwell, Konsa, Saiss
      Salah, Son, Rashford, Foden
      Kane, Jimi, DCL

      Stephens, Killman, Mitchell on the bench. .2 left ITB.

      1. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I wouldn't have McCarthy, Kilman, Mitchell, Rash or Jimi on WC. Maybe Foden too.

    4. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Which teams have the best chance of a clean sheet for GW6?

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Villa, Wolves, Liverpool, Brighton

      2. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Clean? Clean sheet? Nah - you've been hallucinating again.

      3. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Wolves

      4. FPLShaqiri

        Liverpool

      5. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Wolves, Liverpool, Brighton, Arsenal

      6. hewittj1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Liverpool will be top. keep an eye out for the clean sheet odds posted weekly

      7. Major League Shocker

        Palace too

      8. Wılly
        • 7 Years

        I'd back Leeds as well

    5. Yank Revolution

      Start 1: Konsa (LEE) or Lamptey (WBA)?

      1. FOMFF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Lamps

      5. El Niño Yanqui
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Konsa has another goal coming soon. But Lamps is a winger, attacking as much as defending.

        Congrats two good picks

        Confusing question.

        Is this a transfer in (i.e. for the longterm, not one gameweek)? Or who to bench? In which case, none of them.

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Sorry, missed the bit about for this GW only. Probably Mahrez.

        It’s Brighton

          This

      2. Pegboy

        nah, i think it's fine while the fixtures are good. As an owner myself he is frustrating at times, very wasteful but gets lots of chances

      4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Both seems like pretty good options in isolation but like they said above, its Brighton. Go for it if you feel like it.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks all. Yes, it is Brighton but not sure that is bad... I have 7.9 million to use on a forward - alternative could be DCL but that will then be a Everton double up with Rodríguez.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Casuals, who don't overthink like many here, all have the Everton double up.

          i'm a fan of the everton double up - plan to do it this week. best attacking fixtures over next 6 on the ticker.

        Brighton thinks WBA is easy to beat....BUT.....WBA thinks Brighton is easy to beat

        It's not a bad idea to have one Brighton for this game. Brighton looks better than WBA.

        You need the PK machine, I need the PK machine, but they made him so expensive and MU is such a garbage team to watch.

        Reece is great offense and cheap for what he was doing...

        But Lampard's defense stinks and he blames the defenders. If Mendy settles things in goal, you will see Reece win his position back, but when?

        3-Goals by WBA were with Reece and Kepa

        3-Goals by Southampton were with Azip and Kepa

        0-Goals by Sevilla with Azip and Mendy

        The common problem is Kepa. This kid is rubbish.

        I have Dier also. I don't like to spend transfers on defenders or GKs because of low ceiling (definitely not for a hit).
        I would consider something like Mitrovic -> Watkins
        your bench can suck up the dier injury short term

          yes, but he doesn't look close to match fit yet. I would wait on Ags personally

        3. Little Red Lacazette

        I asked on the last page which is more important, salah or Kane.
        The clear answer was Salah.
        However, when you add in the moves, is it still Salah?
        A) sterling to Salah
        B) Bruno to Salah
        C) Jimmy to kane

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years

          A

        2. Tinkermania
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Salah is more important imo. Are you asking people to choose A, B or C?

        3. linkafu
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Salah is the most important player in the game so

        Weakest link is probably Mitro. Can't quite get up to Kane from him.

        A) Mitro --> Aguero (free)

          B or C for me. I think its too early to punt on Aguero. Definitely not a WC situation IMO

        Can’t wait until GW12 or so when all the teams who started with Kane and Son drop off so I can finally have a decent rank...

                    Tough one. I think your bench is good enough to absorb the Dier injury. Maybe something like podence or Barkley. Or you could roll and make a double next week to target a formation change I.e. Ings downgrade upgrade 4th mid

              Gents/Ladies, could do with some outside advice or viewpoints. I'll do my best to keep it short - Team as it stands: 2 FT, 0 ITB, WC spent

              Martínez Steer
              Robbo Saïss Lamptey Mitchell* Dunne*
              Salah KDB* Son Podence Klich
              Werner Jiménez Brewster

              Conceptually I'm thinking ...

              *Def strengthening will be a work in progress over the next few gws

              Short-term is to take advantage of in-form players, with fixtures:
              A. KDB -> Grealish + Brewster -> DCL

              Med-term approach is the performing MCI attacker - Aguero, Sterling or KDB when back (or double-up):
              B. Jimi -> Kane would facilitate this

              Feedback and/or other options much appreciated

                straight swap KDB to sterling and roll the other transfer. wait for mitchell to lose his place before you take him out. If you want to change team structure maybe look at something like brewster + kdb -> J Rod + Watkins

                  I've been looking at 352 & 343 - lot to be said for both with the value out there. I've got both JRo & Watkins on my watchlist. I can't get past DCL & Grealish for proven ability with fixtures and form at the mo though
