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

Had an underwhelming Tuesday evening in UEFA Champions League Fantasy? Fear not, as the game allows managers to make manual substitutions and captaincy changes before the Wednesday matches begin.

In this article, we’ll recap last night’s fixtures and summarise the captaincy and substitution options available to UCL Fantasy bosses before this evening’s 17:55 GMT deadline.

Last Night’s Review

Well that didn’t quite go to plan, did it? For me, and I’m sure many others, this Tuesday night was characterised by Bayern’s attacking pieces – chiefly Robert Lewandowski (12.0m) – failing to deliver.

Joshua Kimmich (6.5m) still managed to pick up 10 points with his long-range strike and looks to be a must-have asset ahead of the games against RB Salzburg. The Austrian champions looked defensively frail in their match against Atlético Madrid yesterday evening, with Joao Felix (9.0m) oozing class with a brace that could easily have been a spectacular hat-trick. 

Following up his 13-point haul from Matchday 1 with two goals, Duvan Zapata (9.5m) has established himself as Atalanta’s main offensive threat ahead of their double-header against Liverpool. Their much-discussed wing-back pairing of Hans Hateboer (5.0m) and Robin Gosens (5.5m) have disappointed so far, however, with no attacking returns.

The main man for their opponents Ajax was 19-year old Lassina Traore (5.0m), who now has six goals and four assists to his name since, er, Saturday. At 5.0m, he could prove to be a key enabler for his side’s games against Midtjylland in Matchday 3 and 4.

The other clash in Group D saw Liverpool rest their normal front three for most of the match in a perhaps undeserved win over Midtjylland, with Mohamed Salah (11.5m) showing his goal-scoring class to win and score a penalty having come off the bench. 

Real Madrid snatched their first point of the campaign from the jaws of defeat as a late goal and assist from Casemiro (6.0m) cancelled out Marcus Thuram’s (8.5m) brace. Picking up another nine ball recoveries to add to his 15 from last time, Casemiro has proven that he will always get points at a reasonable price.

Shakhtar Donetsk and Inter Milan played out a bore draw in Ukraine, with the scintillating attack which took apart Real Madrid nullified and Romelu Lukaku (11.0m) and Lautaro Martinez (10.5m) failing to get in the goals.

Manchester City signalled a return to form with a great 3-0 win in Marseille, with Kevin De Bruyne (11.5m) and Raheem Sterling (10.5m) both grabbing a goal and an assist. Olympiacos, City’s opponents in the next rounds of games, showed that their defence can be breached as they were poor in a 2-0 loss to Porto.

Captaincy

Does ‘Lewandowski – 4’ ring any bells? For those who captained players amongst the goals, congratulations, but for 99% of us who put our faith in a man with 10 strikes in four league games, we’re now left scrambling for a replacement. 

Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe (11.0m) and Neymar (11.5m) are obvious candidates with their trip to Istanbul Basaksehir. PSG seem to be better on the road in the Champions League and Mbappe, in particular, brings great form into this game as my favourite pick for captaincy this evening. Erling Haaland (11.0m) at home to Zenit is another attractive option.

After these three, Dynamo Kyiv’s Victor Tsygankov (7.5m) is a player with international quality and should be involved in Kyiv’s game against Hungarian minnows Ferencvaros.

Chelsea are expected to rotate heavily for their visit to a COVID and injury-stricken Krasnodar, but if Timo Werner (10.5m) or Christian Pulisic (9.0m) start, expect them to be among the goals. 

Substitutions

I imagine most will have some substitutions to make after last night, so try to prioritise bringing on players from PSG, Dortmund, Chelsea, Sevilla and Dynamo Kyiv with their kind fixtures.

Club Brugge’s cheap stars like Charles de Ketelaere (4.5m) could have a field day at home to a Lazio side who appear to have been heavily struck by COVID at the last minute, so I’d look to bring them on.

Juventus v Barcelona is likely to be a tight game between two sides still struggling to find their identities, but if anyone is going to be involved, expect it to be Lionel Messi (12.0m) and Alvaro Morata (9.0m).

As always, four points or less is a safe boundary to take players off for; five if you have particularly strong options to bring off the bench. 

Good luck all!

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          I did Maupay > Bamford. Expect it to go tits up.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            27 days, 4 hours ago

            Aah! I have brought him in too. For Brewster though. Benching Podence. Playing Bamford.

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Me too ; everyone has had to get on the Bamwagon . . .

    6. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sterling captain anyone?

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Considering. And also Salah and Son. Can't decide though.

    7. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 6 Years

      How many Hammers are you getting?

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Have soucek and possibly getting coufal

      2. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Just have Coufal. No plans yet to get another.

      3. Rashleigh Runabouts
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          2. Antonio if fit and a defender, prob Cresswell if funds allow. If Antonio is out for a while, then maybe Soucek or Bowen. Having said that, I've never had much success with WHU players recently. Payet was the last one!

      4. You've got red on you.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Trossard ----->

        a) Bowen

        b) Barkley

        c) -4 Foden (+TAA ---> Robbo)

        d) Save transfer and keep Trossard

        1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
          • 5 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          Next week to Bowen or Benrahma

        2. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          D

      5. Sergeant Garcia
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Why is James red flagged? Have I missed something?

        Fancy doing James & Werner > KdB & Bamford.

        1. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          Yellow, not red right?

          1. Sergeant Garcia
            • 5 Years
            27 days, 4 hours ago

            Ah, you're right 🙂 my bad! The "Muscle injury - 75% chance of playing" was in red, so i was already panicking.

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Hamez . . not James. He plays for Chelsea.

      6. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        A) TAA, Mitro -> Coufal, Kane
        B) TAA, Podence -> Chilwell, Rashford
        C) Podence -> Grealish
        D) Jimi -> Kane

        1. Sergeant Garcia
          • 5 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          B

        2. LewanGOALski
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          A

        3. Boo Ya Ka Sha
          • 5 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          A next week.
          Also thinking of dropping TAA. Feel better about it now that you're contemplating it. Everyone says his "form is turning", But TAA to Chilwell allows me to upgrade Jimi to Kane for free. Would feel better about it if I had Robertson. Feels risky going without either TAA/Robbo.

          1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
            • 5 Years
            27 days, 4 hours ago

            Also thinking of keeping Kane as short punt. Offload to Vardy in about 2-3 weeks.

            1. Hansel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              27 days, 4 hours ago

              Yeah that is appealing with Kane! 🙂

      7. Seanigula
        • 11 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Chelsea XI: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Chilwell; Jorginho, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Havertz, Ziyech; Werner

        1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
          • 5 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          glad i didn't bring in chilwell yet

          1. Seanigula
            • 11 Years
            27 days, 4 hours ago

            most defenders play midweek and the weekend

            1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
              • 5 Years
              27 days, 4 hours ago

              I know. Just saying that if I owned Chilwell, I'd prefer Alonso or Emerson to start tonight.

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          Rudiger plays - wow.

        3. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          Is this good news for Pulisic owners?

          1. Corgzzzz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            Surprised he is not playing, its clear he is lacking match fitness and sharpness, surely he had to play tonight ?

      8. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        I cant figure out how to change my captain

        1. Freshy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          Never Mind I got it

      9. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        No Pulisic or James...not sure if good or bad...

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 8 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          It's given me the confidence to risk James this weekend

        2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          I have got just 1 point every time I have played him. Playing him again this week.

        3. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          Pulisic being not overworked...I imagine James will start when they can afford less defending

          1. ElliotJHP
            • 8 Years
            27 days, 4 hours ago

            Maybe Azpi will just play against the middle tier clubs - Everton, Leicester, Saints, West Ham, Wolves.

            James attacking the worst sides & then as a wing-back vs the Top 6.

            1. baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              27 days, 4 hours ago

              That may also be only hopeful thinking. Another 1 pt 1 minute cameo from Reece James and hate transfer out will come to reconsideration.

              1. ElliotJHP
                • 8 Years
                27 days, 3 hours ago

                Almost certainly wishful thinking! Could just do without the extra fire James brings to my team

        4. El Niño Yanqui
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 2 hours ago

          Only Chelsea kids you can safely own Chilwell are maybe Jorginho

          The rest are expensive for their role and/or uncertainty

          - Reece is not a locked starter
          - Pulisic is less that Grealish by the numbers
          - Mount is not a starter
          - Werner is expensive when you have actual producers for $1M and $2M less cost
          - Abraham not guaranteed minutes
          - Zychek is a myth thus far
          - Havertz is taking all of Mounts playing time and position without providing anything more or interesting

      10. LewanGOALski
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Team for GW7 is:

        Martinez
        Robbo - Chilwell - Saiss
        Salah - Son - Hamez - Grealish
        Kane - DCL - Maupay

        Soucek - Mitchell - Dallas

        2 FTs
        0.1 itb

        Just not to burn a transfer, what should I do here?

        A) Mitchell ➡ Kilman
        B) Dallas ➡ Coufal
        C) Dallas ➡ Masuaku
        D) sth else..?

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

          B

      11. TB303
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Evening

        I have 2FT but absolutely no idea what to do. (after a TERRIBLE GW)
        Is there anything obvious I need to change here?

        Ryan-(McCarthy)
        Dallas- Robertson- Saïss
        Grealish- Salah- Rodríguez -Son
        Calvert- Kane- Maupay

        Bissouma, Konsa, Mitchell

        1. BeWater
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            Nothing obvious there but you could downgrade Ryan to a 4.0. That way you have 2FTs with an extra 0.5 the following week.

        2. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          I think I will be soon getting Whu assets, even though I have some fears that without Antonio they may lose possession more often. From team value point of view it's a pity that there are several defensive options. Yet it's pts we are after. Coufal has passed the eye test for me and his crosses have had more quality than what Masuaku has offered imo. Is it just me or am I just being biased since Masuaku and Ogbonna have been quite poor fpl picks for many seasons?

          1. ElliotJHP
            • 8 Years
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            I agree with Coufal on the eye test, think there is a lot to be said that if they did shift to a back four he would be (presumably) more nailed than Cresswell/Masuaku too.

          2. Noah’s Ark
            • 7 Years
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            I think Masuaku looked great tbh. Cresswell is still the best money permitting.

          3. TNB
              27 days, 3 hours ago

              I'm tempted by Said Benrahma - according to last years stats in the championship, he played 43 games scored 17 and assisted 9. Seems like there is a threat. Worth 6mil?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              27 days, 3 hours ago

              Don't buy coverage, get the best option. Creswell.

          4. Bennyboy1907
              27 days, 4 hours ago

              Dallas or Ayling?
              Coufal or another 4.5?

              1. Would Ed Woodward
                • 1 Year
                27 days, 4 hours ago

                Just get anyone, they're all rubbish but rubbish and cheap is better than rubbish and expensive.

                  • 11 Years
                  27 days, 4 hours ago

                  I thought Ed Woodward favored rubbish and expensive

                    EW loves expensive and mentally unstable rubbish

                    EW would have two 6.0 keepers on his fantasy team

                    EW would be a proud owner of Pepe, Ozil, and Jesus

              27 days, 4 hours ago

              A) Grealish and Aguero > KDB and Bamford -4
              B) Aguero to Vardy/Ings

              1. Hansel
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                27 days, 4 hours ago

                Don't drop Grealish on a -4..

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

                  I think it's ok if you're moving funds to midfield.

            • DAZZ
              • 6 Years
              27 days, 4 hours ago

              Kane / Son / Salah captain? The salah limp puts me off. If klopp says he’s ok he’ll get rhe (C)

            • Boo Ya Ka Sha
              • 5 Years
              27 days, 4 hours ago

              Anyone think that Klopp's tactics will change to allow TAA to push forward with Robbo being more reserved? VVD out should limit Robbo more than TAA. Last night it sounded like Hendo was dropping deep to allow TAA to move forward. Some of the bigger teams like to experiment in the ucl group stage. Wouldn't surprise me if Klopp deployed this style for the next few weeks.

                when gomez has played in the league (recently), TAA has been pinned back due to the fact him and Gomez are defensively horrific.

                It's a possibility. Yet as Robbo owner I might be more confident to sell him for decent "cheapie" like Creswell or Coufal. That money might be useful later to get someone like Rashford in without downgrading Son for example. I don't trust Pool defs being worth the price. Rotating some 4,5 -5 million attacking defenders with Chilwell might get quite similar attacking returns and clean sheets. If Pool fails to keep cs it will dent TAA's bonus point potential a lot.

              Robbo or Chilwell? for fixtures and for season

                you can't talk about for season really, right now i would go chilwell.

                no team is defensively rock solid, so you won't get hurt like you would have in previous seasons.

                Chilwell for the next few weeks..probably Robbo for the season

              Where do you guys aim to finish this year? It’s all over the place. Currently down from 100k to 500k, best finish only 40k, last season was 200k finish. Would be nice to get back in the top 50k especially as I’m In 2 money leagues.

                Forget ranks right now... I don't understand care about ranks during the season. It literally doesn't matter at all. Just focus on getting the most points you possibly can and at the end of the season we'll see. The process is what's important.

                Top 10k is the aim, but it's impossible to know what is realistic atm. The difference between top10k and top100k can be quite small. Some calculated risks and clever and lucky chip strategy can create miracles. I at least hope so tbh. Yet it may backfire. Top 200k is therefore some kind of thinkable worst case scenario.

                My primary aim every year is to continue my 15 year long fantasy football winning streak over my brother. If I win FPL as a consequence of that, it'd be nice.

              Sorry, bottomed

              Needing some help; is anyone getting rid of DCL for the next couple gameweeks or not worth it? (Due to Digne and Richarlison out). Really fancy Ings for the season now and I don't have a premium def.
              Def - Saiss, Kilman, KWP, (Dallas) (Dunne)
              Atk - DCL, Kane, Wilson.

              Been debating for -4
              A) DCL to Ings and Dallas to Zouma/James or 5.5 defender.
              B) Wilson to Ings and Dallas to 4.4m defender.
              C) Wilson to Che Adams and Dallas to Robertson/Chilwell

              1. Rashleigh Runabouts
                  27 days, 3 hours ago

                  My front 3 is Kane, Ings, DCL. DCL would be the one to go and he might, if Antonio is fit. I'd upgrade Wilson to Ings somehow from that lot. Don't think NUFC will score that many.

                "Trent and Robertson are midfielders with the bonus of clean sheets."

                I guess we're going to see if they were just empty words over the next few weeks.

                      I have Reece James. I am the ultimate optimist.

                        27 days, 3 hours ago

                        I'll raise you Reece James and Chilwell.

                        The plan was, of course, to lose James for Chilwell... then Digne happened.

                          27 days, 3 hours ago

                          It could work! Had James week one so I've at least enjoyed some upside. If you have room for both I think it's great - less downside to James benchings.

                          1. Twisted Saltergater

                            I'm coming around to that way of thinking! But i'd have to get lucky with Reece not being subbed on.

                            The plan was to use Jimenez to Antonio funds to upgrade James/Saiss to TAA, buy I'm not so keen with VVD out, and now Fabinho too. May just load up on other attacking fullbacks.

                        😉 This is too correct. To prove that point are you keeping him after his 1pt cameo in next game? (I don't think that seeing him staring at me in my team is going to be good for my mental health after)

                  I think that we can forget all about any kind of bonus from them.

                    There are/were a lot of very good players who have said words to this effect! It would be a nice surprise if they stuck to those beliefs and didn't do a u-turn now that the statement is being tested.

                      Unsure which way you mean that. I have both (no Salah) and will probably sell one next game week, maybe even this. Realistically it's not been a good idea to have had them both (particularly TAA) and now that the rest of the defenders are falling like dominoes it does seem to fly in the face of logic to keep both of them any longer. And the fixtures don't turn for a few weeks.

                        Sorry, I wasn't being passive aggressive.. I don't know who you have in your team.

                        My point really is that, if people genuinely believe that Trent and Robertson are worth their price without clean sheet points, then nothing actually had changed. It's nonsense of course - you consider a clean sheet in 1 every 3 games, but you're hoping for attacking returns too.

                      really depends on the team, could be that the best option is a midfielder and requires a couple of transfers.

                      Ings.
                      All through last season I thought he was a bubble waiting to burst. But I was wrong and he just seems consistently good, and has half decent fixtures coming up.

                          iirc last season, he had a fairly long string of blanks and low scores just after I got him in. Typical!

                      Best budget forward to own just for next week? Got 2FT so its essentially instead of wasting a transfer

                      A) Maupay (vs TOT away)
                      B) Bamford (vs LEI home)
                      C) Wilson (vs EVE home)
