Champions League

The best players to sign and captain for UCL Fantasy Matchday Two

Fantasy Premier League managers frustrated from a weekend of disappointing domestic action might find the perfect remedy in the second round of UEFA Champions League Fantasy.

Matchday One produced some huge scores and it looks like there are some great match-ups to deliver a repeat performance in Matchday Two, which begins tonight. 

In this article I will discuss the captaincy options for the upcoming round, as well as players to bring into, and ship out of, your team. 

Captains Sensible

Last week I recommended Lionel Messi (€12.0m), Romelu Lukaku (€11.0m) and Duván Zapata (€9.5m), who all scored double digits in opening week, so I am for a 100% success rate this time around.

Tuesday, October 27

Sensible

When I picked out Robert Lewandowski (€12.0m) as obvious candidate for Matchday One, he managed to disappoint, despite Bayern Munich putting four past Atlético Madrid. But I still think he’s a good option for Matchday Two, especially after netting a perfect hat-trick against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday took him to ten goals in just four Bundesliga games this season.

Bayern are visiting Lokomotiv Moscow, who lost 2-1 to Rotor Volgograd at the weekend. Having watched their 2-2 draw with RB Salzburg last week, the Russian side could have conceded five if the Austrian champions had their shooting boots on. Lewandowski definitely has his shooting boots on at the moment and I have absolute faith he’ll have them packed for the trip to Moscow. 

Differential 

With giants Liverpool and Bayern both boasting appealing fixtures this week, I had a plethora of choices for Tuesday night’s differential pick. Avoiding both sides, I have gone for Atlético Madrid’s new star man Luis Suarez (€10.0m). 

Owned by just 5% of UCL Fantasy managers, the former Barcelona forward has scored four goals in his first five league games for Atleti. With Diego Costa (€8.5m) still out injured, Suarez is guaranteed to start as the main striker for Madrid’s noisy neighbours. They host RB Salzburg tonight, whose defence looked ropey at best in their opening match against Lokomotiv.

Wednesday, October 28

Sensible

Although Erling Haaland (€11.0m) is another great pick for Wednesday’s games, I’ve plumped for PSG’s Kylian Mbappe (€11.0m). The Frenchman came off the bench to score twice late on at the weekend, meaning he’s got the deadly combination rest and form. 

All of Mbappe’s UCL Fantasy goals last season came away from home and PSG will be angry and in need of a big win after their fairly dire defeat to Manchester United last Tuesday. Istanbul Basaksehir looked pretty toothless in their loss to RB Leipzig and should be the perfect opposition for PSG to re-announce themselves as a source of Fantasy gold.

Differential

Despite being a Chelsea fan, I have not placed much faith in Frank Lampard’s side in Fantasy Football games over the last two seasons. Timo Werner (€10.5m) finally got himself on the scoresheet against Southampton with a spectacular brace and after consecutive goalless draws have stopped Super Frank’s Kepa-related night terrors, he might finally focus on trying to score a goal. 

Krasnodar are the perfect opposition to aid in this quest, a side already low in genuine quality which have been hit hard by injuries and absences recently. Their distinctly uninspiring 1-1 draw with Rennes marked them out as, well, distinctly uninspiring, and their 3-1 loss to Spartak Moscow at the weekend won’t have helped confidence. I fancy Werner to do some damage in Russia. 

Who should I sign?

With the next few rounds building up to Matchday Five proving the most popular time to deploy the Wildcard, I have picked five teams to target over that period. 

Now they cannot play each other for three Matchdays, Bayern Munich and Atlético Madrid both have three favourable fixtures against Lokomotiv Moscow and RB Salzburg coming up, which could provide some big points hauls. 

For the reigning champions, in-game defender Joshua Kimmich (€6.5m) continues to play out of position as a defensive midfielder. He got a 10-point haul last time out, another assist at the weekend and will continue to be nailed on and involved at both ends. As close to an essential player as you can find in this game. If you’re looking to save some cash, Lucas Hernandez (€5.0m) is now first-choice at left-back for the foreseeable future after Alphonso Davies’ (€6.0m) injury. 

Moving forward, Bayern’s attack look prime targets to bring in, depending on who’s going to start. Although Serge Gnabry (€10.0m) is confirmed to be back after a false positive COVID test, I prefer Thomas Müller (€10.0m) starting behind Lewandowski. 

Gnabry has tended to start on the right wing for Bayern so far this season, with his three league goals all coming against Schalke, when he started on his preferred left-hand side. We have the benefit of seeing the Bayern line-up before the deadline this week, so I’d watch out for whoever starts on the left for them. If it’s Gnabry, expect big things, but in the more likely event it’s the returning Leroy Sane (€9.5m) or the in-form Kingsley Coman (€8.0m), they could do well too.

Staying in Group A, Atlético play two of their next three at home and are now on a 21-game unbeaten streak in the league. Their defence remains as mean as ever, and I’d look to bring in the kindly-priced Renan Lodi (€5.0m). The left-back is nailed-on to start and can provide at both ends, also bringing in three points for balls recovered last week. Felipe (€4.5m) is slightly cheaper and recovered eight balls last week, but with Jose Giminez (€5.0m) returning from injury his place in the team may be under threat. 

Moving to Group E, Chelsea and Sevilla both have games against Krasnodar and Rennes coming up. I’ve already mentioned Werner as my favourite pick for Chelsea, but Jorginho (€6.0m) seems to have solidified his place in the starting XI, is on penalties and recovered six balls against Sevilla. 

For the Spanish outfit, Diego Carlos (€5.0m) brought in nine ball-recoveries last week. Their defence has been particularly strong so far this season and with Jules Koundé (€4.0m) still out with COVID-19, Carlos is the best source of points for Sevilla.

The final team to target is Borussia Dortmund. Their Matchday Two opponents Zenit St Petersburg looked poorer than expected against Club Brugge and lost their most recent domestic fixture at home to Rubin Kazan over the weekend. 

Jadon Sancho (€10.0m) is yet to hit form, but expect it to come soon, quite possibly on Wednesday evening. In defence, Thomas Meunier (€5.0m) and Mats Hummels (€5.0m) delivered 11 ball recoveries in their loss to Lazio and Dortmund will be looking to get points on the board in their group. Expect big points for players across all five of these teams. 

Who has to go?

There were several key injuries around Europe’s top leagues over the weekend which impact the upcoming round of Champions League matches. 

Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho (€9.0m) picked up a knock in El Clasico, which will keep him out until at least after the international break. Sergio Aguero (€10.0m) can expect to be out for a similar length of time for Manchester City, leaving them without a recognised striker yet again. 

Although he was benched for the game against Atlético last week, Davies was expected to return to the line-up for Bayern this week until he was injured just three minutes into their domestic match on Saturday. 

All three are out for at least the next two Champions League Matchdays and should be looking to leave your squad. 

Having played their easiest games of the group stages, RB Salzburg, Lokomotiv Moscow, Rennes and Krasnodar now have a tough run of fixtures. 

Any players owned from those squads, such as Sehrou Guirassy (€6.5m) and Patson Daka (€7.5m), will likely have a fairly barren few Matchdays coming up. 

Atalanta and RB Leipzig also have three challenging fixtures on the horizon and, although I wouldn’t take them out just yet, be aware that they have tough games through Matchday Three and Four. Therefore, try not to pile-up on high-scoring Matchday One assets like Zapata and Angelino (€5.0m). 

The same goes with Club Brugge players like Charles de Ketelaere (€4.5m), another Matchday One hero, who now faces an in-form Lazio side and Borussia Dortmund home and away. 

With that, good luck all. Here’s to hoping for another great UCL Fantasy Matchday.

    Who to give the cap to for tonight, Benzema or Coman?

  2. tinear
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    Martinez
    TAA, Saiss, Ayling, Lamptey, Mitchell
    Salah, Son, Grealish, Havertz, Bissouma
    Kane, DCL, Maupay

    2ft 0itb

    1) Maupay to Bamford
    2) Maupay, TAA to Bamford, Chilwell

    Chillwell has better fixtures for next few. And Bamford is performing better and in better teams compared to Maupay. And no 2 gives me fund to upgrade other def next week.

    Whats your thought?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      1, can always do TAA to Chilwell next week

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        I reckon Chilwell will do better than TAA vs West Ham dont you think?

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 8 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Antonio looks to be out, not sure how well West Ham will adapt.

          I would still rather have Trent than Chilwell

            Didn’t realize that about Antonio. Cheers

      Any thoughts on what to do with this lot please?

      Somehow I’ve ended up with 6M Itb!
      Want to replace Maupay I can obviously afford Kane but want to be different. Leaning towards ings Werner but really not sure how to play it maybe even Bamford then upgrade Foden to a big hitter next week.

        Get yourself a plan. Choose the in-form players with fixtures - simples 🙂

      3. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        i think Maupay out for the big hitter of your choice seems like the best move to make

        1. In a Rush
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Cheers I normally have a plan but I’m a bit lost this season. Werner seems to have 3 reasonable fixtures now but not sure he’s worth it

          1. Nice to Finally Michu
            • 7 Years
            27 days, 7 hours ago

            I have Werner and I think he'll do well in those next 3

            1. In a Rush
              • 4 Years
              27 days, 7 hours ago

              Yes my hunch is he will do well too

      4. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        I wouldn't overthink it. Just get Kane.

      5. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        You could upgrade Brewster to an Ings or Jimenez but this could end up to a bench headache.
        Since you have Son, you could enter Chelsea's fixtures with Werner.

        1. In a Rush
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Cheers yes I don’t think the benching headache is for me would rather get someone cheaper than Kane for Maupay so I can afford to upgrade a mid to Bruno or kdb etc

      6. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        If it helps, I’m going Werner rather than Kane. Fixtures are good and I like the gamble. If it backfires I’m going to try and stay very relaxed!

        1. In a Rush
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 6 hours ago

          Fair play that’s the spirit I may join you good luck!

      Lads, I have an off-top 😉

      I quit playing Fifa on PS4 after Fifa 19.
      Now I am thinking on starting my story with Pro Evolution Soccer.

      Used PES 2020 costs approx. 10 EUR so it’s nothing.
      The question is whether it is worth it to upgrade it to PES 2021 for another 25 EUR?
      Are there any changes bar squad updates?

      Anyone familiar with?
      thx!

      How was your Gameweek?

      Were any of your players benched? Did you get any injuries? How did your bench perform? Did your captain return?

      Tell us your tales of joy and woe from Gameweek 6, here:

        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Villa fan with Martinez, Watkins & Grealish - Friday night went well!

        Only silver lining from that game was Reg no-show last night gave me Aylings 6 off the bench

      2. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Oof absolute disasterclass to have done KdB > Trossard (-4) last week, could've brought in Mane or Son.
        No Kane or Son struck again, sigh.
        Brought in Salah(C) for Hamez, blegh.
        Sterling looking pretty tired but not sure when he'll get a rest

        Che Adams though!! And McCarthy
        Thank you Saints

        200K red arrow, get them next time. Pereira to hopefully offer a parting gift

        1. In a Rush
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Only positive this week was Foden coming on and scoring other than that an absolute stinker!

      3. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        I have double Brighton and Wolves defence. The two late equalisers turned a great week into a decent one.

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Zaha, Foden and Saiss coming off early save it though.

      4. Joey Tribbiani
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          I did: Digne (-2) + KDB (1) -> Lamptey (1) + Mane (8)
          That -4 was looking like a masterstroke until 83rd minute on Monday evening when Grant scored for WBA.

        • I Member

          51 with Salah (c) so can't complain. Happy with my decision to keep Ings and Jimenez instead of getting Kane. Foden goal was nice too.

          Owning Semedo while most of my rivals have Saiss was extremely frustrating. Also felt hard done by as a Lamptey owner which him coming close to an assist then getting booked then losing the CS late on.

        • Etonmessi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Took a gamble and Benched DCL worrying about his supply line (possibility of James injury) and played Zaha instead. Not massive but worked out well.

          My defence saving me, to get an avrage weekend. Plus Burnley looked to have tightened up a bit after a poor start of season, maby Taylor come good for me.
          And now watcing Brighton game in review, eases me a bit considering Maupay.

          So, a depressing weekend has lightened up a bit now for me.

        • skodaole2
          • 8 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Out of 5 defs and 2 gks, got a cs from 1 playing def, 2 benched defs and 1 benched gk. Patience didnt reward me again for Pereira and Mitrovic but Jimenez worked. Captain Kane was not bad, although hoped for something better. Small red arrow and I wont remember this GW. Will probably drop one - two high ownership players (Salah, Son, James the candidates) during the next 1-2 GWs to make it more interesting.

        • PastaConcerto

          • 7 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Another Salah capper here so not great...but one jammy plus was Chilwell on for Reguilón. Had Dallas and Jorginho clean sheet pts on the bench as well. Crappy 43 but luckily no one in my main ML scored over 50...so a bit relieved. Not a bad GW to score below average.

        • HollywoodXI
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          35 points minus 8 point hit - 27 points all out. Son got 11 of those points! Worst OR ever - 3.7m. Things can only get better right? RIGHT?!

        • Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Great - Mane (C) and Foden carrying the GW

          Bad - Podence, why!

        • Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          47 which feels alright considering.

          Return from Jimmy, Saiss, Foden and Son.

          Captain blank from Salah and Zouma benched

        • djman102
          • 11 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          32 points, 1/3 of those from Son.

          Classic case of the popular picks I own (Salah, Fernandes, DCL, JRod, TAA, Ryan, Maupay) blanking and the popular picks I don't own (Bamford, Kane, Jiminez, Ings, Saiss, Justin, Chilwell, etc) getting returns = 850,000 place drop in rank to 2.9M.

            Stinker here as well DJ but at least you own it, the current form is to blame the rules, the forum, the press conferences - anybody but yourself.

            Of the defenders, the 3 I picked accumulated 2 points (thanks Luca) while the 2 on the bench got clean sheets (Ayling & Bednarek)
            Sh11t happens.

        • Do I Not Like Orange
          • 8 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Spent ages deliberating who to bench out of Foden, Lamptey & 'injured' James. Of course I benched the only one who returned. Also spent the best part of 27M & an armband on 3 Pool players who returned 6pts between them.

          Other than that it was OK tbh, between Ings, Jimmy, Saiss and Son I managed to beat the average for the 2nd week running.

          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Nothing but tales of woe and anguish. And a very red arrow.

          No returns except the spurs boys led to a 34 point score and a drop from 100k to 300k with a gw rank of 6m something. All from a team I thought looked really good before the gw started

        • jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Salah was a captain fail, and KWP and Justin on the bench. But Jimenez and Ings remain consistent, so owning both is a useful differential.

        • King Carlos
          • 5 Years
          27 days, 6 hours ago

          The last three GWs my defense has scored me a total of 7 pts.

          I get mi coat.

            How is that even possible? 9 players min without GK 12 with.

            Must have a few non-playing first choice defenders there.

            1. King Carlos

              27 days, 6 hours ago

              Nope. Everyone played!

              TAA -1 pt
              Digne 1 pt

                Wow that is insanely harsh.

                Unlucky! If you carry on you deserve some kind of medal.

          Brought in McGinn for Costa which went well...

          Bamford first on bench - I get Rodriguez 2pts instead.

          Close to Semedo clean sheet, got Castagne clean sheet and captained Salah.

          Not too sure I did much wrong but another underwhelming week - not even the much-coveted Kane would've saved me. Turned out it was indeed better to keep Jiménez rather than ship for Kane this week.

          Smooth - Started Ayling over Soucek.
          Rough - He was my highest scoring player apart from Son! Salah(c) blank. Another ref arrow and languishing at about 3mil OR

          Is this the ultimate casual? The guy leading our ML was #1 after GW1. He reacted to that with a 4-player wildcard, saying that it seemed the cheapest way to get Fernandes in for Son. When asked why, he replied "what's a wildcard?". Then he did nothing for 3 GWs. This GW, he triple-captained Son, saying that he thought it meant Son would be his captain for the next 3 GWs. He's now in the top 25k in the world.

              That is funny. I'm no expert but no casual either, as I spend too much time lurking on here and watching SSN etc. I aslo know the rules of the game, but I guarantee if I took over managing his team as a so called 'non casual' his OR would plummet, lol!

            Smooth: brought Jimenez in for Mitrovic. Brought Reguilon in for Davies, still got Justin bench points.
            Rough: Salah (c)

            Rough: triple Brighton, double Everton and single Villa - a net 9 points from 6 players

            Smooth: Mane (c), Son, Jimenez and Chilwell - a net 42 from 4 players

            Took a hit to bring in Salah (C ) and Struijk took out TAA and Pulisic, left Justin on the bench Tierney playing. Sterling Jrod Trossard Maddison Dcl did nothing and finished up 25 all out, the absoloute worst week I've ever had

          5. lugs

            27 days, 6 hours ago

            rough
            benched Chilwell and Castagne, in favour of Killman and Lamptey, played Semedo too, so Wolves conceding that stupid late goal really hurt

            Smooth
            Jimmy, Son & Kane(c), helping me to a not too disastrous 46pts and only a small red

            Only rough, even Son 11 last night lost me rank as don't have Kane, Salah blank and no-one else got more than 3. My pre wildcard team of 2 weeks ago would have got me 10 more. 32 points and out of LMS already.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            27 days, 5 hours ago

            39 pts. Leeds fan so naturally no Bamfordinho and Ayling sat on the bench.

            Salah c blanked as did most bar Kane and Son.

            This is a time for staying patient because in another week, my team will score plenty.

            Rough

            Early transfer of James -> Robertson.

            Hear Rodriguez is out so do Barnes -> Barkley (-4) and bench Rodriguez.

            Hear Rodriguez is probably fit so put him back in the starting line-up at the mercy of BAMFORD.

            That's a swing of 11 points on the transfers, 26 points lost if you take in to account the benching.

            27 days, 2 hours ago

            Smooth: Mané cap, Jimenez, Saïss and Son did well for me. As a Kane and Salah co-owner this GW was a relief. 57 points without any transfers made, this GW was a personal reminder that no player is essential.

            Roughs: Nothing really apart from another disappointment from TAA. Also have some deadwood to get rid off in Watkins, H. Barnes and possibly the aforementioned defender..

            Rough, rough, rough.

            Brought on Grealish for a hit - a shot cleared off the line and keeper saving 1v1

            Mitchell - Palace conceded on injury time, again

            TAA - absolute gift of a pen, assist for Salah's offside goal

            Salah(c) - offside goal, hit the post from 5 yards

            Did Adams -> Maupay last week - after the move Adams 2+1, Maupay missing sitter after sitter

            Ryan - how did they concede?

            KWP and Justin on the bench

            Rough: my triple Everton (Digne/Rodriguez/DCL) combo netted me 1 point between them.

            Smooth: finished on 56 points thanks to Zaha, with a supporting cast of Son, Kane and Jimenez, meaning a third consecutive green arrow keeping me around the 15k OR

            Weird one for me this week.
            Rough:
            Digne -2
            Salah C, DCL, Rodríguez, TAA, Maupay, Sterling all blank
            Dier 1st sub for his first CS of the season (thought he was injured)

            Smooth:
            Saiss subbed on 67 for CS + 1 Bonus

            Fell from 150k -> 300k OR

            Smooth - Watkins (7), James (6) and Lamptey (9) off the bench

                Could be 50% - "He's just feeling something a little bit in his hamstring. We think he feels it's just cramping so it's not serious, but we're not too sure."

            I only have 6.0 million myself so my replacement will probably be Bamford - I think I would do the same with 6.8 million.

              Yeah. Agreed. And either keep the money ready in case Antonio is back sooner, or spend it on defensive/bench upgrades.

          • 11 Years

          Am considering ASM to Grealish on a free but remind me, is he primary pk taker or Wesley. Might just save but tempted.

          1. HellasLEAF
            • 11 Years

            That Liverpool performance shows there is more to come and to be patient imo.

            No idea who the Villa penalty taker is. Could be Barkley. Don't know if Watkins has a history of taking them. Wouldn't bet on it being Grealish. He missed one or two last season and stopped taking them.

            1. popey
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              27 days, 7 hours ago

              Watkins didnt take any last season in championship (makes his 26 goals pretty impressive!)

          3. popey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            27 days, 7 hours ago

            Not sure, Wesley and Jack both took and missed one last year, not had one yet this season.

            Barkley could be first choice, if not Jack is my best guess. We don't tend to get many penalties though!

          Any changes you’d make to this squad? Have 2 FT and 0.1 ITB

          McCarthy,
          Robbo, Saiss, Chilwell
          Salah, Pulisic, Grealish, Son
          DCL, Kane, Wilson

          1. Pep bites Kun

            I've had Batshuayi last 2 games for his 5pts x 2.
            But is he nailed when Ayew is available? I hope so otherwise maybe I swap him for Adams

            I think last week Rogers said that after the IB he will "start training" meaning he was still a few weeks away. Even when fit i believe he ll get mins from the bench first so we ll know when Justin's place will be insecure

                  Targett & Ayling have played every minute of the season so far.
                  Mitchell / Kilman / Clyne haven't, and could be rotation risks..?
                  I would go for Ayling and Coufal

                      Zaha and Bamford are both well owned in the top 10k and will hurt rank if they score.
                      I can afford one but not both, probably Bamford but prefer Ings.

                          I figured it out. It indicates the overall top 3 scoring defenders, top 4 scoring midfielders and top 3 scoring strikers.
