Champions League

UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football is back – what you need to know

The Champions League is set to resume in February with the knockout stages next month – and the official Fantasy game for the competition returns with it.

Even players with poorly performing teams can resurrect their season, with unlimited transfers allowed before play resumes.

We are bringing you more content on this game than ever before this season, and you can expect position-by-position guides over the next fortnight as well as regular articles to follow when the action commences.

Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have made it through to the knockout stages along with 13 other teams, with games from February right up until the final on May 29.

In this piece, we’ll go through all of the key information ahead of the knockouts and remind you of all the rules and how they differ from Fantasy Premier League.

KEY DATES

Players can make unlimited transfers up until February 16, right up until the first two games of Matchday 6, kicking off the Round of 16 kick-off.

The first legs of the Round of 16 include mouthwatering ties like Barcelona vs PSG and Liverpool taking on RB Leipzig.

Matchday 7, made up of the second legs, begins on March 9, and ends March 17.

The quarter-finals are scheduled to begin on April 6, with the semis kicking off on April 27.

The final, which will be played at the Attaturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, is scheduled to be played on May 29.

KEY PLAYERS

With points awarded in other categories (more below), the tops scorers are not made up of the usual suspects.

The game’s current topscorer is Atalanta defender Cristian Romero, with 50 points.

A defender who Premier League fans will recognise currently sits in second, with Angelino of Red Bull Leipzig scoring 46 points.

One of the more recognisable faces near the top of the charts is Neymar, with 40 points currently to his name.

BRIEF RULES

To summarise the game in one sentence: UCL Fantasy managers get €100m to spend on a squad of 15 players, who earn points based on their on-field performances in the Champions League.

Anyone who has played Fantasy Premier League will have no trouble in picking the game up, as many of the rules are exactly the same or very similar:

  • An initial budget of €100m (which rises to €105m from the last 16 onwards)
  • Pick a squad of 15 players
  • No more than three players from each club (that threshold rises once the knockout stages begin)
  • Select a starting XI in a valid formation for every ‘matchday’ (the UCL equivalent of a ‘Gameweek’, which incorporates both the Tuesday and Wednesday fixtures)
  • Select a captain who earns double points
  • Make free transfers between matchdays

Those are the fundamentals but there are one or two quirks of the game that require a bit of explaining, which we will cover below.

SUBSTITUTIONS

How to play UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football - a beginner's guide

If you prefer the hands-off approach to Fantasy management, auto-subs occur if any of your starting XI fail to feature and there is a playing substitute on your bench – providing that player doesn’t break the formation rules (a minimum of three defenders, two midfielders and one forward).

Where UCL Fantasy differs is that it also gives managers the chance to make manual substitutions instead.

After all matches on a single day (eg Tuesday) have finished and before the next matches within that matchday kick off (eg Wednesday), UCL Fantasy managers can:

  • Replace a maximum of four players (unless they have been sent off), with any of their substitutes whose teams are yet to play within the matchday.
  • Change their captain to another player from their squad whose team is yet to play. The original captain’s double points will be lost and the new captain’s score for that matchday will be doubled.

As an example, say you have selected Mohamed Salah (€11.6m) for Liverpool’s matchday 7 clash with RB Leipzig on February 16.

If the Liverpool midfielder fails to feature or returns a middling score of, say, two points, you can then replace him with one of your substitutes who is in action on February 17.

TRANSFERS

As we mentioned earlier, free transfers are allowed between matchdays.

Like in Fantasy Premier League, UCL Fantasy managers can roll a maximum of one free transfer – although only in the group stage.

For every transaction you make beyond your quota of free transfers, you’ll take a hit of four points.

The below table details how many moves are allowed at each stage of the competition:

Phase Number of free Transfers
Before the group stage beginsUnlimited
Matchday 1-62 per matchday
Between Matchday 6 and round of 16 1st legUnlimited
Before round of 16 2nd leg3
Before quarter-final 1st leg5
Before quarter-final 2nd leg3
Before semi-final 1st leg5
Before semi-final 2nd leg3
Before final5

CHIPS

There are two chips available to UCL Fantasy managers: Wildcard and Limitless.

These chips can be used only once per season and, once played, can’t be cancelled.

Wildcard

As in FPL, the Wildcard gives you the chance tochange your squad as much as you like. When you play it you can make free unlimited transfers and any players you transfer in will stay in your squad once that matchday has finished.

Limitless

Limitless is the equivalent of FPL’s Free Hit chip and gives managers the chance to change their squad for one matchday only.

Once the matchday has finished, your squad will return to how it was before you played the Limitless chip.

Rather excitingly, there are no budget restrictions when activating Limitless – so, should you wish, you can pack your squad with the most expensive assets in the game.

SCORING SYSTEM

Again, the scoring system is a very familiar one.

Most of the player actions and the points on offer tally with FPL, although there are one or two notable differences.

A goal scored from outside the box gets an additional point, for example, while the acts of winning and conceding a penalty are rewarded and punished respectively.

Players also gain points through ball recoveries, which gives the more defensive-minded players a chance to rack up a tidy score.

Over half of Virgil van Dijk‘s (€6.0m) 2019/20 points total in UCL Fantasy was made up by recoveries, for example.

    When do the yellow cards reset?
    Lots of relevant fpl names on 4
    Confirming a card in the fa cup means they could miss PL game

      The bar gets set to 10 after the team has played 19 games

        Cheers for this

      19 FPL games of a team. Man Utd, for instance played 19 games, so Bruno is safe. Aston Villa have only played 16 games, so Jack Grealish needs to manage another 3 games without booking.

      1. HMC

        Too good, thanks

      Cards in other competitions don't count.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        But you can use other comps games to count in a ban...

  2. puhd

    Worth-8?
    Vardy, Adams, Soucek out
    Kane, Brewster, Gundogan in

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      not at all

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I don't see what the rush is personally.

      Kane has Pool (I know he can score, but it's still a tough game) and Vardy tends to do better away from home.

      Can you afford Soucek > Gundy?

    3. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Why Vardy out? His fixtures are much better than Kane's

    4. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I wouldn't lose Vardy when he has EVE away and Kane has Liverpool. You probably brought Vardy in for a hit in the DGW19

    5. puhd
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Vardy has been such a disappointment

  3. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    It's really hard to judge how well the BGW-DGW went overall. And, we'll only have a better idea once we've had all the doubles and blanks I think.

    I feel like I've done well having played no chips at all- small green arrow in 18 and 96 with Salah, Grealish & Martinez to go.

    But then I look at some players like my brother who played his WC in 18 and got a big green in 18 and is on 130 with 3 left to play this week.

    He's not far off making up 50 points on me - and that's just compared to me who has got green arrows and done pretty well.

    That's a HUGE gain from one chip. I'm starting to wonder if I should have played WC in 18...But, we will see how the chips go later in the season and then I'll have a better idea. I'd be surprised though if my WC nets me 50 points on those who don't play it.

    1. SimonOwen
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      On 102 with three to play no chip usage this week. Got a green arrow and sitting top20k with WC and TC left. had spunked BB earlier this season so i didnt have to worry about a playing 15. dodges a bullet as i would of prob BB with leeds assets this week and gotten hardly any benefit.

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Better to bank points now and potentially even increase in TV
      Some chips are overrated like BB
      Eg: I had triple Leeds and decided to play it so hasn’t been a great return but I also took a -12 this week to load on DGW and in 4 moves i’m up just over 40 points!

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      If you still have your BB GW29 could be a massive DGW. :). Suggest you follow Crellin on Twitter. GL.

  4. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Would a double up of Maddison & Vardy be too much Leicester from GW21?

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Nope, I think I would go with Barnes over Maddison

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I already own Maddison mate

        1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          As a Vardy owner, he is frustrating to own. I think Vardy is a don't buy don't sell.

          1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Leeds at Home then Fulham Away looks unreal games for him

            1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Wish I never took the hit and kept Kane. On paper it looks good but as I said watching him in GW19 was frustrating

              1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Yes id be leaving a bit spare getting him if I choose to so I can make that switch to Kane

        2. John Nerdelbaum
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          So that would be a triple up then

          1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Why? I only own maddison

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Considering the same thing

  5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Just 0.1 short of KDB + Davis to Gundo + Kane! So irritating.

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      It always seems to be the way hey

    2. Davros
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Thinking something similar but put off by Kane’s next fixtures

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I think I will wait too. Will probably just do Soucek to Gundo this week.

  6. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Cup tie is super close (again).

    I won my first round by a point. Took a FH team up against another one last week. And now it's come down to:

    Him: 103
    Me: 95 with Salah + Martinez

    Surely Salah + Mart will do more than 8 right?

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah on current form 🙁

      Nah, should do it yes. I can see a Salah goal and a Martinez cleanie

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Yeah even if worse case scenario Salah blanks, I can still make it with a Martinez cleanie. Thankfully they're playing the absymal Newcastle in their next game.

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Just need one goal from Salah. Martinez will definitely take care of the rest. I lost mine once that assist was awarded to Bruno. Rival had Bruno(C)

    3. Daniel - WC Active
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah brace tonight. You are good to go. Congratulations

    4. Davros
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Would have thought so

  7. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Kdb to gundo will be so tempting if he’s injured for even 2 games

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      If he's injured for two games his feet won't even touch the ground I'll move him out so fast.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        What will you do with the cheddar ?

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Honestly have no idea.

          I'm actually pretty happy with the structure of my team (4 big hitters with loads of good value players like Grealish, Stones etc..).

          May punt on another big hitter or just have cash in the bank

          1. Pocky
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            If he's out I'll do KDB, Wilson & Soucek to Gund, Salah & Antonio (-4)

  8. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Any chance KDB is ready for the WBA game?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      No idea yet

    2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Depends on the extent on the muscle injury. WBA is less than 6 days away from last nights game. Could be too early

      1. Daniel - WC Active
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        bench the best imo, they can win against WBA without him. I am interested whether he will be fit and raring to go the next game against Sheffield at home when he is the prime captain option.

        1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I don't think KDB is a good explosive pick for captaincy anymore. Prefer Kane and Son for GW21 or Vardy if you like the risk

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Can’t see how he’s risked
      I’m sure Pep wanted to rest him soon anyway so I’d be suspended if he plays

      1. Davros
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Hope he doesn’t play then for your sake

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Damn auto correct
          I’d be surprised (not suspended ha)

    4. Davros
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Be surprised but waiting for more news

  9. Alberto Tomba
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    On WC as I had planned originally post DGW.

    Looking to shift all my liverpools players (as an lfc fan) as we're still a bit deflated by the centre back situation.

    Who are the three best Man United players to own?

    Bruno, Shaw and ??:
    Cavani - will he get enough minutes to get goals
    Rashord - as above
    Pogba - historically hasn't yet had a consistent period of delivering FPL points, so I dont believe he will now

    1. Daniel - WC Active
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Just Bruno imo. I have Maquire, Bruno and Rashford and plan to sell.

      1. Alberto Tomba
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Thanks Daniel. Ill galdly follow your advice here then 🙂

    2. TheBiffas
        1 month, 12 days ago

        thoughts behind wildcarding now?

        1. Alberto Tomba
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Too much deadwood from several weeks of building to the DGW, a couple of injuries, and Liverpool for me just being ones to get rid of, Man Citys and Arsenals change in form and Palaces long term fixtures swing.
          I can see it's not the best time for most, though and probably a sub optimal decision but we'll see!

      • Toked
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Rashford would be the third for me

        1. Alberto Tomba
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          If he's the third choice, then i'll probably have to leave em out for now and can select someone from another team.. cheers!

      If Chris Wood scores to bust Liverpool cleanies I will be in FPL dreamland. Unfortunately I am relying on Chris Wood to score at Anfield.

      1. Daniel - WC Active
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        He easily could. His type of game

        Recovered from your tantrum then.

        It's great to want to do well but you need to have a bit of perspective too. And it's always best to assess things in the cold light of day, not in the heat of the moment.

        I've been at your rank a few times and it's OK to not quite hit everything perfectly every time.

      Got a benching headache this week, any assistance would be great.

      Who would you bench?

      McCarthy

      Robbo - Holding - Dallas - Coufal - Dawson
      Salah - Bruno - Maddison - Raphina - Soucek
      Kane - Vardy - Bamford

      Full West Ham or Leeds bench or a mix? Can see Robbo returning 2 points aswell.

      1FT 0.1 iTb but likely to hold

      Really enjoying this season. Had a terrible start, yet all the chaos means I'm sat at 300k now, about 100 points off top 10k. Don't give up with your teams guys, 4 gameweeks in quick succession soon and many will take their eye off the ball!

        Oh dear more quick gameweeks in succession? It seems that's all we've had for as long as i remember!

        I'm suffering real fatigue, not helped by the fact they drag the games out over so many live slots too.

            Team looks decent even with them benched but I would probably start if they feature vs a shoddy Wolves defence - Not sure who Lampard will go with though.

          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Starting from 1-3 weeks would be my pointless speculation. Fixtures are turning and he hasn't matched Gundogan lately. Out he goes therefore.

      3. ZEZIMA
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I'm predicting a Salah 3 pointer tonight. Mane goes huge with 2 goals. Robbo gets an assist and clean sheet

        1. Daniel - WC Active
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Salah had 5 shots and Mane 1 last time. Not buying your prediction.

      4. SimonOwen
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Current Team.

        Martinez
        Creswell, Chilwell, Dias
        Gundogan, Barnes, Salah, Fernandes(c)
        Bamford, Kane, Antonio

        Mccathy, Robertson, Bissouma, Douglas

        Benching Robertson just feel weird.. but I feel like it is the right thing to do...

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I cannot condone such irresponsible fpl behaviour
          Benching Robbo is an actual sin
          One of gundy or Barnes for me

        2. Nimby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          If you'd bench him you might as well sell him.

        3. Team Bobcat
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I dont think benching Robby is such a huge gamble. You have him well covered.

          I dont expect much goals in the liv spu game so a scoreless draw the likeliest outcome.

          He is a decent first sub and eho know what the lsy of theland will be comedeadline day or after. Covid still around, least we forget

            way too expensive now, but might be an option for GW31 and beyond. Amazing fixtures at the end.

            2. No interest but the fact Arsenal are firing again deserves a tiny bit of attention. He was at 0 for weeks.

            Probably not gonna go there though.

          Hope one of us wins it this year.

                  Thought I was wiped out when my oppo TC'd Cresswell and I simple-captained Salah. Thanks to City defence and Hammers I'm almost certain to win the high-scoring round.

          could it be possible that EVERY team blanks in GW29?

          am i right in thinking the picture will become slightly clearer after this weekends FA Cup fixtures?

              Actuanlly no lol maths fail

              Only 8 teams can reach the quarters

            2. jomikijiq
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              It's mathematically not possible. There are 8 slots in QFs and 20 premier league teams

          4. The Rumour Mill
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I think we are guarenteed at least 2 fixtures in GW29.

          7. Black Knights
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            There's at least one fixture just from looking at that:

            If Leicester beat Brighton, we have Brighton v Newcastle.

            If Brighton beat Leicester, we have either Burnley v Leicester (if Burnley beat Fulham) or Fulham v Leeds (if Fulham beat Burnley).

            Plus some others will reveal themselves similarly.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1 month, 12 days ago

          1 FT
          £0.4 ITB

          Meslier
          TAA Robbo Dias
          Salah Bruno Son Raphinha
          Wood Antonio Bamford

          Johnstone Lookman Coufal Dawson

          What would be the biggest priority here?

          I was very keen on Salah + TAA / Robbo -> KDB + Chilwell (-4), but if KDB is injured / doubtful then i would keep Salah...

          In that case, which one should be:

          1) Wood -> Watkins
          2) TAA -> Chilwell (not keen in another City defender unless Walker misses a couple of games and then i go for Cancelo, as we'll see a lot more rotation now in City as the CBs are back to fitness)
          3) Wood + TAA -> Chilwell + DCL (if fit) (-4)

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Why you not keen on City defenders?

            1. ASOUSA12
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Dias is the only nailed on player in defence. Next games will come in very quick succession and Laporte is now fit and they have Fernandinho, Garcia and Ake should be fit soon also. So I expect Stones to be rotated and would only consider Cancelo if Walker was out for some time. Chelsea has excellent fixtures coming soon and Chilwell is nailed on, and there are loads of moves I need to do to get my team into shape (KDB, Grealish, Martinez, etc)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          if Grealish gets booked next game will he be suspended or will it be cleared as its been 19GWs?

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Villa need to play 19 before its reset

            • 3 Years

            Suspended because Villa haven't play 19 matches yet.

          Salah’s EO around me is just over 100%. So even if he does well I’ll lose rank points.
