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

The UEFA Champions League Fantasy game allows managers to change their starting XIs and captains – with certain restrictions – following the culmination of the Tuesday matches and before the start of Wednesday’s games.

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

Tuesday night saw a whopping 35 goals go in across eight games, with both German sides in action scoring six goals on the road. The star men for the evening were Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Alassane Plea (€8m) and Liverpool’s Diogo Jota (€7.5m), who both scored hat-tricks, with Plea also adding an assist. Both were playing away from home, meaning that on Matchday Four they will have the same fixtures, but with home advantage. 

Gladbach’s 6-0 win at Shakhtar was definitely the unexpected talking point of the evening. Marco Rose’s side were utterly scintillating in front of a Ukrainian crowd, doing what neither Real Madrid nor Inter Milan could do in beating Shakhtar. Whilst Plea will take the plaudits, Lars Stindl (€7.9m) and Ramy Bensebaini (€5.5m) also got two goals and an assist between them. Gladbach’s star man from the Real Madrid draw, Marcus Thuram (€8.6m), was restricted to just one assist. Expect more of the same from the Bundesliga side in the reverse fixture in Matchday Four as they look to assert control over a tough group, but almost definitely not to the same extent. 

European favourites Liverpool and Bayern Munich both had big wins on the road. Liverpool exposed Atalanta’s defensive frailties and whilst Gian Piero Gasperini’s defiance not to change his tactics under any circumstances is admirable, it really was their undoing yesterday evening. Sadio Mane (€11m) and Mohamed Salah (€11.5m) showed why they are always great options as both grabbed a goal and an assist, but as Liverpool are not far from qualifying for the last 16, we are much more likely to see more of Diogo Jota (€7.5m) going forward – and he really looks like the man to snap up in this team. Their defence also proved that it doesn’t need Virgil van Dijk to keep a clean sheet, with Trent Alexander-Arnold (€6.6m) getting another UCL assist to highlight his quality as an asset. 

Bayern’s late burst of goals was a welcome relief to owners of Robert Lewandowski (€12m), whose brace finally rewarded owners with a 10-point haul. Thomas Muller (€10m) proved that he is the second-best pick of the Bavarian outfit’s attacking assets with two assists, whilst Joshua Kimmich (€6.6m) continued his unbelievable Champions League form by setting up two goals.

Sergio Ramos (€6.5m) demonstrated why he’s a popular pick with his 100th Real Madrid goal, but in general, both the Spaniards and Inter Milan looked unsteady at both ends, making it difficult to pick any assets of real quality out of either team. 

Manchester City and Porto both showcased their strengths in 3-0 wins, with Kevin De Bruyne (€11.5m) grabbing two assists and Sergio Oliviera (€6.5m) scoring another penalty for Porto. 

An Ajax side much less COVID-stricken than we were led to believe beat Midtjylland on the road, with €6m forward Antony scoring and having another goal disallowed. At home and hopefully part of a full-strength team in Matchday Four, Antony should continue to start and be a great cheap asset for the Amsterdam side. 

In the early kick-off, Lokomotiv Moscow held Atletico to a draw, with Joao Felix (€9m) repeatedly denied by an incredible Guilherme (€4.5m) performance. 

Captaincy 

Most captaincy options from yesterday evening proved successful, with Salah, De Bruyne, Kimmich and Lewandowski all scoring eight points or more. However, if you did not pick one of the successful players from yesterday evening, there is still a wealth of options available for tonight’s games.

We get to watch both Lionel Messi (€12.1m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (€12m) turn out tonight, with Ronaldo looking particularly ready to go against a defensively poor Ferencvaros side. Messi is facing a Dynamo Kyiv outfit destroyed by COVID, with just 13 players eligible to play. If he starts, expect a big haul from the Barcelona man against a Ukrainian side made up of a lot of youth prospects. Outside of the obvious two, Erling Haaland (€11m) should be fit for the visit to Brugge and, after scoring in both of his opening Champions League matches, will be looking to continue this form. 

Slightly left-field captaincy options may come from the two English sides playing this evening, with Chelsea at home to Rennes and Manchester United visiting Istanbul Basaksehir. United have six points from their first two group games and will be looking to secure knockout qualification early. Marcus Rashford (€9m) has four Champions League goals so far and should be the talisman charged with securing a United victory. In London, Hakim Ziyech (€9m) has scored in his first two games for Chelsea and will likely line up again this evening after Christian Pulisic (€9m) was ruled out. 

Substitutions

As always, the dilemma over whether to make a change or two depends on who UCL Fantasy managers have to bring on. You have to look at the ceiling and floor of the possible substitution against what you know you already have. If the player has four points or less, it is normally worth a gamble as long as your substitute has a decent fixture and generally positive prospects.

Expect Wilmar Barrios (€4.5m), who will be on a lot of benches, to continue his trend of scoring five points a game. Sevilla and Chelsea defenders have a great chance of a clean sheet and should be brought on where possible, as do Juventus and Barcelona options. Watch out for news of the Barcelona game, though – if one further Kyiv player tests positive for COVID the game will be postponed. This may also encourage Ronald Koeman to rotate his squad in anticipation of an easier game, so keep your eyes peeled for news of a Messi/Fati benching if you own either.

                What are your toughts on Pulisic -> Ziyech after Frankies news that Pulisic might start on the weekend? Would you still do it?

                1. doher.ty
                    25 days, 2 hours ago

                    I'm staying clear of Chelsea attach until everyone is fit. I think I would hold Pulisic if fit.

                    • 9 Years
                    25 days, 2 hours ago

                    Yes. Ziyech is just a likely to get pts and more secure this gw

                    If you’ve got a good bench and only one ft I’d hold.

                  • Better off with a pin and a…

                    • 8 Years
                    25 days, 2 hours ago

                    If we're pretty sure Puli's fit I'll probably hold and have the 2FT next week.

                    25 days, 2 hours ago

                    For sure. Pulisic is too volatile.

                    25 days, 2 hours ago

                    I'm holding but only because I have other fires.

                    25 days, 2 hours ago

                    I wouldn't - I'd save the FT and use it elsewhere - bench or play

                    25 days, 2 hours ago

                    1ft anything else to do? 1.5 ITB.

                    Did Saiss to Coufal

                    Martinez
                    Chilwell, Coufal, Lampety
                    Salah, Jrod*, Son, Grealish
                    Jimmy*, Kane, DCL

                    My 1st choice to replace Ings this GW would be Antonio, but if he's not fit who would you prefer?

                    A) DCL
                    B) Wilson
                    C) Vardy

                    1. doher.ty
                        25 days, 2 hours ago

                        I think Vardy is on in 2gws (for my team) for now I like DCL still (Fulham in two weeks).

                        • 3 Years
                        25 days, 2 hours ago

                        Martial (3.7% owned) for 2 weeks and then Vardy

                        1. doher.ty
                            25 days, 2 hours ago

                            I like this - I was considering this Jimmy to Martial and then Martial to Vardy GW 10

                            1. Bushwhacker
                              • 1 Year
                              25 days, 2 hours ago

                              Martial at Everton seems a long shot for points ; Vardy can score against anyone.

                            2. HashAttack
                              • 3 Years
                              25 days, 2 hours ago

                              I'd expect him to be keen to make up for his RC and then it's WBA

                        Planning Saiss to Bellerin. Now, start bellerin over Robbo??

                          25 days, 2 hours ago

                          why own Robbo and not play him?
                          sell.

                            Yeah I think you have to play Robbo no matter what

                              Not really. That's a very close minded view.

                                Put them through the comparison computer. Only one winner. And its not Bellerin.

                          If you're planning on making that transfer and benching him then I would save unless you don't have a bench

                            Got Rashford last week as a Hames replacement - Had 9.5m so it was him, Mahrez or Bale

                            I am getting him. By downgrading Ings to Brewster and upgrading Foden to Bruno. Switching from 3 4 3 to 3 5 2.

                              I have Bruno. I think he's got chances for points in the next couple.

                              A - Coufal due to lamptey and mitchell uncertainty.

                              Soucek's kind fixture could carry you this week without the need for a hit on pulisic. Can wait on his fitness then untill after the IB?

                              Long term A. Puli may well be back after IB. You need a def to cover Lamptey this week - My choice is a def stronger team choice of Zouma

                              I'm in a very similar position, though I've got Dallas and Lewis over Lamptey and Mitchell so my bench is bit more certain. I think in your case I'd probably just do A) and hope Puli plays. I might even risk holding for the 2FT next week. There's a chance Saiss plays as well (even if slim).

                            Could really do with some opinions on what to do this week guys, too many options this week!

                            A) Ings to Wilson (hold pulisic)

                              I've just 4.4m for replacing Mitchell.

                              Is Balbuena nailed and a good option for this price?

                                Why replace Mitchell? He can rot on the bench.

                                I’ve got balbuena in. Moyes likes him, and he’s good for a goal. Only had 4.4 when I swapped lascelles last week.

                              Anyone knows if Matt Ryan will remain on a bench or was it just single game rest ?

                                I'm only guessing but as he's been first choice for a while I think he gets at least next game to prove he is ready to compete fot the spot. Another benching would not be logical from a managers perspective if you want to keep his confidence.

                                  benching the new guy after 1 game doesn't make much sense to me.

                                  no chance to prove himself

                                  doesn't really show ryan he has competition for the spot

                                    If we were talking about a new signing I would agree with you but if I understand correctly he's been with Brighton a while already.

                              As an Adams owner I think i'll be selling next week before wol MUN

                              In the longer run the fixtures aren't terrible but I think Adams will be really hurt without Ings lining up alongside him. A lot of his chances come from their interplay and with this slight downturn in fixtures now is probably the time to sell.

                              Probably will do Adams > Richarlison for a 3 week punt.

                                  Not a bad idea to move him out. I was going to get Antonio for Mitro this week but he's injured. Plan B was Adams but definitely less appealing without Ings.

                                Robert Sanchez the BHA goalie is now added in FPL, but sadly he is 4.5.
                                BHA correspondent Andy Naylor says Sanchez may keep Ryan out of playing XI.

                                Keep Trent or Robbo?

                                    I've got Trent and am keeping him.

                                      Got Robbo, keeping him. On form this season Robbo seems more consistent, but you can see TAA blowing out a game at some point.

                                    Ugh.. already slowly starting to get depressed with the IB coming up. Can’t even go on vacation with this bug in the air. Thought maybe I’ll go to a casino and play some poker but all poker rooms are closed too. Can’t they just put plexiglass between players and/or 5 max per table?

                                      Dias for sure ; Cancelo is hard to drop right now . . Mendy is a liability . . . but with the number of games Pep is going to rotate them for sure.

                                      Based on potters press conference do we think Maupay will be straight back into the starting 11?

                                        Maybe Rodriguez(if fit of course) and Kilman if you can afford?

                                          Hmm yeah have exact cash for Sais -> Kilman and Pod -> Rodriguez

                                          What's the reasoning for Rod over Grealish?

                                            Not much really. I have Grealish in my team and will probably keep him but I also plan to bring in Rodriguez after the international games

                                      Think double Wolves is overkill. Who would you get rid of out of Jimenez & Podence ?

                                        Same issue. Podence only plays 60 mins so tempted to get rid of him first. Maybe for soucek given fulham fixture.
                                        Jimi to martial the other idea but that is more of a gamble, and could be done the following week anyway

                                        Jimi. He's more expensive. Podence is a nice little 7th attacker.

                                      This might be the best FFScout article done this season. Prescient. It also does something that most articles don't do. It looks to predict future returns rather than regurgitate picks that have just done well.

                                      So many articles are super hindsight driven and recommend players that just scored well and so happen to have nice fixtures upcoming. Spotting a player that has not shown up on anyone's radar ahead of time is the real goldmine in FPL. And here it is. This article unearths the perfect goldmine based on underlying data that belies the results.
