Champions League

The best midfielders and forwards for UCL Fantasy knockout stages

UEFA Champions League Fantasy managers have just a few hours left to sort their squads for the return of the continent’s biggest club competition.

The last-sixteen kicks off on Tuesday evening at 20:00 BST, so make sure your team is ready.

We recently listed our favourite goalkeepers and defenders, and just in time, we have pulled together the best midfielders and forwards to consider.

MIDFIELDERS

Being completely honest, top-quality midfield options left in the competition are very thin on the ground. As far as premium options go, Raheem Sterling (€10.5m) strikes me as the best of a bad bunch. 

The Manchester City man has four goals and two assists in his last six starts and plays a below-average Borussia Monchengladbach defence. However, you’ll probably find better value elsewhere in the City midfield. Ilkay Gundogan (€6.7m) has become a darling of Fantasy Premier League managers across the world, now the top-scoring midfielder in Europe’s top-five leagues this calendar year, although we will have to wait and see about a recent groin issue.

Alongside him, Phil Foden (€7.1m) seems to have cemented a space in the starting line-up, with his recent goal and assist in the 4-1 victory over Liverpool demonstrating what top value he could be. 

Looking at the other possible premiums, only Mohamed Salah (€11.6m) and Jadon Sancho (€10.0m) deserve a mention by virtue of their sheer individual quality. Even with Liverpool’s dire domestic form, Salah is still the Premier League’s top scorer and on penalties for Jürgen Klopp’s men. 

Sancho is back fit and firing, but for a very out of sorts Dortmund side. Both Salah and Sancho play two of Europe’s top defences (in Leipzig and Sevilla) and while they can both score against anyone on their day, your money may well be better invested elsewhere.

RB Leipzig’s midfield options should be perfectly placed to take advantage of a terribly organised Liverpool defence. Christopher Nkunku (€7.6m) is fully fit and has two goals and two assists in his last four starts for Julian Nagelsmann’s side, playing either as a false-nine or in the attacking midfield two. 

Nkunku seems far more involved and productive than Dani Olmo (€6.0m) and should be worth his price. Behind them, Marcel Sabitzer (€8.4m) is on penalties and picked up seven points for balls recovered from his four group stage starts, but for the price Nkunku looks comfortably the best option of the three. 

There are two great budget options from the Madrid sides. Casemiro (€6.2m) picked up 13 balls recovered points from his five group games and is also Real’s second highest scorer this season, although he only has five goals. For his price, Casemiro should be well set up to provide a steady stream of points through the knockout rounds. 

A more exciting pick is Atletico’s Marcos Llorente (6.5m). In all competitions, the Spaniard has seven goals and seven assists and should be well placed to add to that against Tuchel’s Chelsea.

There are three more budget options who could do well despite their teams likely ending up second best. Sergio Oliveira (€6.7m) faces a well-organised Juventus side, but he’s on penalties and has scored in his last two league games. If Porto score, he’ll likely be involved. 

Penalty-taking Jorginho a mainstay of Tuchel's Chelsea as rotation bites elsewhere 1

Jorginho (€6.0m) picked up 12 points for balls recovered in the group stage and has penalties. Even if Chelsea lose comfortably, he should still be able to pick up some points. Third in this group is Frenkie de Jong (€6.4m). Since Barcelona moved to a 4-3-3, he has five goals and two assists in 11 games, as well as 5.5 balls recovered per 90, but he has lined up at centre-back in their last two games. 

Two mid-priced options finish off my recommendations. Whilst Bayern certainly aren’t as free-scoring as they once were, Kingsley Coman (€8.5m) will play more of a starring role in their attack after Thomas Müller (€10.0m) tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) and Serge Gnabry (€9.8m) was ruled out for the foreseeable future with a thigh injury. Coman scored in their recent win over Hertha Berlin and should be among the points against an average Lazio side. 

No-one is backing Gladbach against this steamroller of a Manchester City, but if they do score, Lars Stindl (€8.3m) will likely be at the heart of it. Their captain takes penalties and has 16 league goal contributions in 21 games.

FORWARDS

Now this is where it gets interesting. Having a competition with most of Europe’s finest forwards leaves us spoiled for choice and, for the most part, they are all decent options. Picking the wheat from the chaff is the real challenge here. 

Let’s start at the very top. Lionel Messi (€12.1m) has been in scintillating form for Barcelona, with 10 goals in his last eight league games. However, these have almost all been against average to poor La Liga sides, with his record against Champions League calibre opposition markedly less impressive. 

In his six games this season against sides left in the UCL, he has just one goal and one assist, both coming in Barcelona’s only victory over one of those sides, the 2-0 win over Juventus. Given his massive price, I’m worried about whether Messi and Barcelona can still really rub shoulders with Europe’s elite.

Cristiano Ronaldo (€12.0m) is a far more convincing pick. He remains the big-game talent he always was and is very much the talisman of Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus side. Playing Porto, they will be expected to win comfortably and Ronaldo should be at the heart of any goals. 

The only other player more expensive than Ronaldo is Robert Lewandowski (€12.1m). He comes into this game after scoring all three of Bayern’s goals in their Club World Cup win and has 24 goals in 19 league games. Lazio don’t have the defensive organisation to really deal with someone like Lewandowski and he should score well in the strongest side of the three top strikers. 

As with budget midfielders, Madrid provides us with two intriguing options up front. Luis Suarez (€9.9m) has really found his spiritual home with Diego Simeone’s Atletico side, with 16 goals in his 18 league games. He is well set up to bully Chelsea’s centre-backs and pick up some points. 

More than ever before, Real Madrid’s hope rest on Karim Benzema’s (€10.4m) shoulders. He has scored in his last three games and always comes alive when needed most, so he could do well against Atalanta’s inconsistent defence. 

Although PSG have been plagued by injuries, they should still thrive against Barcelona. Kylian Mbappe (€10.9m) and Mauro Icardi (€9.5m) will be at the heart of those efforts. Icardi is a seriously undervalued pick, with four goals and five assists in five starts and three sub appearances under Mauricio Pochettino. 

He will start as the number nine for both games against Barca and could be a top differential. Mbappe is the more popular pick, but he has a relatively underwhelming four goals and two assists despite having started all of the nine games Pochettino has been in charge for. 

As with Sancho, Erling Haaland (€11.1m) is a top player, but playing in a terrible side against a very well-organised defence. Despite this, he’s managed five goals and three assists in the last five games for Edin Terzic’s men, but if anyone will stop him, it will be this Sevilla side. 

Ciro Immobile (€10.6m) is in a similar position, although Lazio are in better form than Dortmund. Bayern have tightened up defensively since their 3-2 loss to Gladbach and should have more than enough to keep him quiet.

In terms of (comparatively) budget strikers, there is really only one option I trust. Youssef En-Nesyri (€7.4m) is the best value pick at this position. He’s hit a rich vein of form for Sevilla, with eight league goals in his last six starts. 

He was rested ahead of this game and should lead the line against a Dortmund side who can’t seem to buy a clean sheet. With uncertainty over Sevilla’s starting lineup elsewhere, he should be a sure- starter and is well set up to score goals.

    Which is the priority move?

    1. Antonio to Ings.
    2. Saka to Raphinha.

    Holding DCL and Justin.

    1. Eat my goal!

      Both for -4

        1 month, 23 days ago

        That's my thinking, I'm tight for funds again though!

        Over Justin to Dallas.

      2 but 1 potentially doubles in GW26 .. depends on chip plan

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I'm holding WC 33 and FH for 29.

        I've BB to a 50k game week rank and on TC this week and quietly waiting for tomorrow.

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I am planning to do both for -4.

    4. Bounce
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I'm doing both for a hit.

        Leeds vs Southampton has 5-4 written all over it and will go down in DGW history.

        Bamford 14
        Raphinha 16
        Dallas 12
        Ings 16

        1. AC/DC AFC

          Or 9 nil?!

      • Maeki2

        2

    5. Releasebreaks
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Any reason to not WC this team now for then BB in gw26 ?

      Martinez Lloris
      Dias Stones Shaw Targett Lowton
      Bruno Son Gundo Grealish Barnes
      Kane Ings Bamford

      Missing Salah, but can get him on gw27 with 2FT plus -4 if he goes crazy on DGW.

      Feel can get more from this chip without Salah.

              Thanks, just thinking taking Targett out to not double in AVL defence, any idea on who to bring up to 5.1 ? Maybe Kabak? Liverpool have SHU on gw26, maybe cs guaranteed.

            Kane has 6 games in 16 days starting Thursday (if he starts Thursday)

            Injury or league rotation waiting to happen if Mou makes a go for the Europa trophy

            1. Releasebreaks
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Normally Mou dont like to rest his main players, he goes with same 11 in most fixtures

                Something will have to give - he’ll have to miss games, either through rest or through injury - it’s a DCL/Antonio type situation waiting to happen

                If he misses Europa, that’s perfect for FPL & vice-versa...

                Remains to be seen how seriously does Mourinho take the Europa though, he might write it off or deprioritise as they have the LC Final as a possible route to a trophy (vs city lol)

                Thursday teamsheet will be telling

                1. VISH
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Lol sounds like you are spreading hearsay as you have used your WC and BB

                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Kane won't play Thursday, end of. Spurs are playing a second-rate Austrian team and Mourinho will use the squad as he has so far in the EL.

                  If Spurs reach the QF stage then maybe Kane gets involved but that's quite far away. Until then he'll be on the bench if needed, no more.

            2. Releasebreaks
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Plus Mou have to get back on league if he he want to keep his place secure

              I still have FH, but planning to not play in 29
              Everybody will have almost same players, so no good to waste my FT
              Will only play on gw29 if villa vs spurs are out

          I will have Martinez. But till downgrade him in 27/28. (Have a FH for 29 and they have the worst fixtures from 31).
          So I am looking for someone who offers good value from now till the end of the season

            If I'm honest I don't think it will be as planned. I can see it being a dgw but perhaps not as big as anticipated.

            I kind of hope it is, as disruption makes this game fun.

            It will be a thing for sure

            But rest, rotation & fatigue will ruin it as a scoring spectacle, no doubt

            The fixture lists of the teams involved are bonkers

                We’ve seen it start to finally catch up in recent weeks with the spate of injuries - DGW26 will take it to the next level

                    The numbers of teams left in cups starts to dwindle which will thin out the fixtures again - the chaos will peak in & around DGW26

                    It’ll be like a scene from a disaster movie, bodies everywhere

            I pray for this. The end of Ben "my whole life revolves around crayons and a spreadsheet "Crellin. , everyone would have to actually do somthing themselves. Ya know like we used to do . Noobs won't understand 😉

              1 month, 23 days ago

              I've find the whole thing a bit too much. There's a fine line between playing a game for a bit of fun and updating an excel spreadsheet like an admin office job and calculating probability of cup results. The fixtures when announced won't involve any of us having to take 20 point hits, probably just a couple of transfers. I appreciate the hard work he's done but it's not how I ever want to play fpl tbh.

                I find it all annoying. No one has their own mind no more. Really has killed the game for me. Feel like i am clinging on every year but so addicted i can't let it go
                Suthern's, Crellin, FPL General, Andy and all the others selling out the game for a money and and their own fame. I think they do more damage than good personally. Where is the fun in just listening to somone babel on about how they have pulled numbers out a stats table. As soon as one of these guys bring in a player you can guarantee half your cash league will follow suit. Anyway each to their own its only going to get worse. FPL will soon be automated. Press a button and the algorithm will do it for you

              Personally, I think Ben deserves all the plaudits he gets , the bloke puts a seriously large amount of time into his research, and his spreadsheet, and once you have purchased his spreadsheet, you still have to do a lot of work yourself, ie planning etc .
              The thing that rattles my cage is the constant spoon feeding requests by the ones that can’t be bothered to do any research , it’s the same ones every week. , .. who should I drop ? , who should I capt ? , who scores more points between A or B .
              There is a vast amount of information on this site , but people can’t be bothered to put the time in .
              I don’t profess to be good at this game , but I try , and I make my own decisions , rightly or wrongly and live with them.

                Don't you think it would be intresting if we had no one telling us about the blanks and doubles. We probably wouldn't all have similar teams for one

                  Yeah, it would be interesting, I just thought that for the amount of work and time he puts in , he deserves some credit , at least he’s not spoon feeding the can’t be bothereds .
                  I sort of semi follow him around this time of year, just so I can try to plan my subs with the info he puts out re Dow & bgw, but that is the limitation of any assistance I try to use , I certainly don’t go asking for people to pick my team for me each week like loads on here do .

                And yes good on you for doing your own thing. Very rare these days. I only listen to FML these days. Ignore all the rest of the mindless spoonfeeding crap. Probably to my detriment no doubt but what's point in playing if it's any other way

          How’s this looking for a WC draft?

          Martinez / Sanchez
          White / Dallas / Stones / Shaw / Rudiger
          Grealish / Salah / Bruno / Gundo / Raphina
          Watkins / Bam Bam / Ings

          6.9 itb

          Will do Raphina and Ings to Kane and Son for -4 in GW26.

          Not happy with losing double city defence though

            I'd take a punt on Vestergard instead of Shaw. Man U have a tough double.

              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yes, I have considered him, but in place of Rudiger. But thanks for the suggestion, that sounds interesting.

              That is true. Maybe I’ll try and squeeze Dias back in

              That’s the idea, but will wait for confirmation on the fixtures before pressing the button

          This team worth BB-ing in DGW25 for (-4)..?

                And has also just arrived from a club nailed to bottom of the German league, joining a club in terrible form, enduring an absolute horror show of a last 20 mins vs Leicester... not somebody I’d be jumping at personally

            Interesting that everyone said to keep Son on a WC but majority prefer Grealish Dallas over Son Struijk?

            Martinez Johnstone
            Cancelo Stones Shaw Aina Dallas/Struijk
            Salah Bruno Gundogan Maddison Son/Grealish
            Kane Bamford Watkins

            1. Releasebreaks
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Keep Son
              More likely Son to go crazy than Grealish, plus Dallas can get attack returns but hardly will keep CS banked

            2. Catastrophe
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Son & Struijk. Son is a season keeper for me, left my team twice towards the start of the season with disastrous consequences!

              Dallas is obviously a great option but Struijk at 3.9 is looking too good to pass on with the spare $ put to good use.

              1. Super Saints
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Omg I've sold Son twice earlier in the season, also with disastrous consequences lol think I'd be OR 1 if I hadn't, well maybe not quite.

            3. Catastrophe
              • 10 Years

              Also allows Villa double up in defence plus Watkins which I prefer to Grealish taking up a valuable mid slot

                Villa double up in defence?????

                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Targett & Martinez (Well, defence + GK 😉 )

                  1. Bushwhacker

            Spurs are one of the few teams with a potential DGW and who don't Blank in GW29. So anyone else without a FH planning to triple up on Spurs? Kane and Don obvious picks but what about the third?

              I probably won't double up with Son and Kane until BGW29. Plan to bring in Kane 25/26. Their form isn't great and don't think double or triple spurs is worth it for DGW

              Depends what chips you have left. You could roll FT or Grealish to Raphinha

            1) Antonio -> Ings
            2) Cavani and Messlier -> Kane and fodder
            3) Other suggestions?

            (2FT, 2.8 itb)

            Martinez
            Cancelo/Dias/Dallas/Mee
            Salah/Bruno/Son/Gundo
            Bamford/Cavani

            Bench: Messlier, Antonio, Soucek, Digne

              Don't understand why you would lose a Meslier before Leeds double

                To get Kane and because of Martinez’ consistency

              Not likely according to Pep but then since when has he been reliable!

              Why risk it? They have plenty of players to replace him.

            DCL / Saka out - Ings / Raphinha in for a -8 .. Worth it? Should get 4 appearance points extra back for two more games
            Yes or No?
