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!

    Bale for the nice fixtures than switch to Bruno or Bruno directly?

      Bruno

        Tottenham bur BHA wba MCI che

        Utd CHE ARS eve WBA sou

        Looks like perfect switch after the WBA game no?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Yeah but not sure about Bale getting much, points will probably spread out between Kane, Son and him.

          Plus Chelsea, Everton aren't really good at keep clean sheets.

        Def one of the brunos

        Why would anyone go Bale when there is a glut of better mids available.

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          For Brighton and WBA. CAN'T find a better punt for those 2 fixtures

          Have Son and Kane already and want to triple up

          1. Rolls-Royce
            • 6 Years

            Madness.

        1 month, 3 days ago

        Bruno looks irresistible. I got 87 on my WC last week so happy with the team, but not having Bruno is vexing. Waiting 3 weeks for WBA could cost 30+ points and United often struggle at home to poor teams

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          30 pts with those fixtures?

    3. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah or Kane (C) and why?

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        S

      2. TNB
          1 month, 3 days ago

          I've got both and leaning towards Salah

        • Shineonme
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          salah but if you have son and kane in you're team I'd cap kane

      3. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Keep or downgrade Antonio to be able to bring Hames? 1m short of Barnes/Zaha to Hames

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Any other player you can downgrade? Antonio will be handy after couple of weeks

          1. Daniel - Go Granville
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            TAA or Robbo but can do that after the Sheffield games not much logic to so it nown

        2. ivantys
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Downgrade Antonio will become a fodder, there's nothing to get at 5.5 or below.

          • Shineonme
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Zaha

            1. Daniel - Go Granville
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Yeah Zaha out but dont have money

          Thoughts on this wildcard team? The bench is awful but I would swap Saiss out after 2 weeks.

          Martinez / 4.0
          Lamptey / Saiss / Reguilon / Kilman / 3.9
          Grealish / Salah / Son / Rodriguez / 4.5
          DCL / Kane / Werner

          I could swap Grealish for Barkley or McGinn but I think Grealish is the best Villa pick?

          Any feedback

          1. Daniel - Go Granville
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Like it, on a WC myself and don’t have the balls to drop TAA or Robbo

                Have just robbo now. Feel loosing him would be a mistake

            • 2 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Like it, I’m also going without Liverpool defence for a while. Maybe choose a more nailed option than Reguillon, as you could easily end up with no defensive cover if/when Kilman loses his place. And I’m not sure Saiss’ upside over the next 2 weeks is really worth booking in a transfer for. I’d swap those two out, but the rest looks great to me

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

              Thanks for this. Definitely good advice. Annoyingly I'm .1 short of Reguillon to Chilwell. I could swap Lamptey to Targett and double up on Villa defence, then I can have Chilwell instead of Reguillon?

              1. FourLokoLeipzig
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                Hmm, I wouldn’t lose Lamptey. How about Saiss to Konsa and Reguliion to Chilwell?

            Would like to see Liverpool be more defensive in midfield and more attacking with the full-backs now, to make up for losing VVD and Alisson. Will make them more reliant on Salah, Mane and Firmino, but they have the individual ability to do it against the PL sides.

            Looks a more classic Pep team with two 'holding' midfielders - Gundogan and Rodrigo. But then places a lot of creative responsibility on Bernardo (usually KDB, who can handle the responsibility) and the full backs. Still think City miss a proper left-footed left back. Shame Mendy keeps getting injured.

            Would you play:

            A) Bissouma (WBA h)
            B) Shaw (CHE h)

            Thanks for all responses.

            Why everyone jumping on Salah for captaincy when he only scored one goal in just a 2-0 score line at home to Sheffield last year?
            I would captain Sterling for example, he scored a hat-trick against WHU away and has a good record against them.

            1. ivantys
                1 month, 3 days ago

                Sterling is still a differential which not many own.

                Salah on form. 5 PL games played and he has scored in all 5 games.

                  If you’re happy with just another 7 points be my guest...Sheffield are not bad defensively and Mane is in the fray now too so he can always take away a goal from Salah.

                Completely different Sheffield team defensively to the one we saw last year. Henderson is a huge miss for them.

                Never really understood why people use previous results from previous seasons as a guide to predicting an outcome in the present season.

                  Agreed. Seems so weird to me aswell

                  I don’t use it to predict scores but to have a comparison...it’s just one of the tools you use apart from current form, etc. Betting companies use that data too when they create the odds.

                  1. JIMMY764
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Fair enough. I do think this season is different though. Looking at some of the results so far, the lack of pre-season and no fans etc. Using last seasons results as a comparison does seem rather futile to me at this stage.

                    Of the 27 fixtures up to GW4 this season exclusively featuring the non-promoted sides, 9 (33.3%) produced the same result / outcome as last season. 18 (66.6%) did not. Food for thought.

                Afternoon all,

                Jesus out for a few months, whats peoples thoughts on Serg instead of KDB?
                Tempted to drop Jimmy for Serg and use the funds ive saved tfring KDB out last week on upgrading other depts?

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

                  Or would you just do a straight swap for Sterling instead?

                  Not a bad option but prefer Kdb with set pieces and pens

                    Depends how long hes out for i guess, and with Serg back he'll be on pens anway id have thought

                Salah has a sure goal in his pocket vs SHU maybe 1g 1a or 2g too.
                Kane can hattie though so its a difficult decision to make

                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  If you think Kane can score a hatty and Salah can't, how can it be difficult?

                    I just think that Salah is more of a safe pick this gw than Kane. Kane can blank if Spurs are bad and score only once but Salah is probably gonna get 8 pts for sure
