Euro 2020

Enjoy Euro 2020 coverage and data with Fantasy Football Scout this summer

Fantasy Football Scout will be the home of the European Championships’ Fantasy game this summer.

And it’s not too early for to start preparing your team as Premium Members already have access to all Opta data collected from the qualification phase.

From the summer tournament’s curtain-raising clash between Turkey and Italy on Friday, June 11, you can read about and discuss every kick of the ball until the final on Sunday, July 11.

We will cover every Euro 2020 match in the form of Scout Notes and Members articles using our access to Opta’s data for the competition.

And we will have detailed breakdowns of every participating nation in the build-up to Euro 2020 too, picking out their key creators, goal-scorers and defensive rocks from qualifying as well as predicting their most likely starting XIs.

We will be using Opta data from the qualification section of the tournament to help enhance these articles for Premium Members too.

How does the Euro 2020 Fantasy game work?

READ THE EURO 20201 RULES IN FULL

There are seven Euro 2020 matchdays in total, corresponding to the three rounds of games in the group stage, plus the round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.

As in Fantasy Premier League, you select two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards with a budget of €100.0m, a figure which rises to €105.0m from the knockout stages onwards.

There is a limit on how many players you can select from one national team which changes as the tournament progresses.

  • For the group stage, you can pick a maximum of three players from the same team
  • For the round of 16, you can pick a maximum of four players from the same team
  • For the quarter-finals, you can pick a maximum of five players from the same team
  • For the semi-finals, you can pick a maximum of six players from the same team
  • For the final, you can pick a maximum of eight players from the same team

Captains and Substitutions

Like the UEFA Champions League Fantasy offering, the Euro 2020 Fantasy game allows managers to change captains throughout a Gameweek and make substitutions between matchdays too.

How do players score points?

There are several similarities between FPL scoring and the points on offer at Euro 2020.

The key differences include an additional point for long-range goals, two points for winning penalties and a deduction of one for conceding a spot-kick.

* Points only awarded when the player plays at least 60 minutes.

Who gets the assist?

A player gets points for an assist whenever he plays the final pass, cross, header or shot which leads to a goal. This also applies to set plays (corners, free-kicks and throw-ins).

Players also get points for an assist if a goal is scored on the rebound when they’ve shot against the post, bar, goalkeeper or defender.

They’ll also get points for an assist when their pass, shot or cross leads to an own goal. Players that win a penalty won’t get points for an assist – instead, they’ll get two points for winning the penalty.

Only one player can get points for an assist for any one goal.

When a goal is scored from a solo run or dribble, no player will be credited with the assist.

Are there any chips?

Euro 2020 Fantasy managers will have access to two chips during the tournament, the Wildcard and Limitless chip.

Wildcard

The Wildcard gives you the chance to change 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.

The normal rules for automatic substitutions, manual substitutions and captain changes still apply when playing your Wildcard, as well as formation constraints and the number of players you can pick from one team.

If you’ve already made transfers ahead of a matchday and you then play your Wildcard, the transfers you’ve made previously will be cancelled, along with any points deductions. To play your Wildcard, select ‘Activate wildcard’ and then confirm the transfers you’d like to make. This chip can be used only once. Once you’ve played it, it can’t be cancelled.

Limitless

Limitless gives you the chance to change your squad for one matchday only. When you play it, you get unlimited free transfers for that matchday with no budget restrictions. Once the matchday has finished, your squad will return to how it was before you played Limitless.

The normal rules for automatic substitutions, manual substitutions and captain changes still apply when playing Limitless, as well as formation constraints and the number of players you can pick from one team.

If you’ve already made transfers ahead of a matchday and you then play Limitless, the transfers you’ve made previously will be cancelled, along with any points deductions.

To play your Limitless, select ‘Activate Limitless’ and then confirm the transfers you’d like to make.

This chip can be used only once. Once you’ve played it, it can’t be cancelled.

Where can I access Opta data?

Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members can access data from the qualification and finals stages of Euro 2020.

In order to access this information, you will need to change the active competition in the Premium Members Area, as shown above.

Simply click on the drop-down box which contains the phrase ‘Premier League’ and change it either to the qualifiers or finals tournament for Euro 2020.

You can now examine the qualification phase in full detail, measuring your favourite players by all the metrics available when comparing FPL options.

    Have to lose Bruno or Greenwood to field 11 this week. Who should go?

    1. Pariße
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Bruno for De Bruyne.

    2. Jässi
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Lose Greenwood, you'll want Bruno back asap.

      1. Malkmus
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        This

    3. Amey
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Depends upon who's coming IN. In isolation I'd sell Bruno because he won't play GW38 IMO and GW can (just before UEL final)

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Would be Raphinha in for Greenwood. If selling Bruno I guess I'd have to look at Bale or a City mid or just get Raph anyway.

      2. FPL Theorist
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I've heard so many people say this, but Bruno never misses a league game, bar the extremely unusual situation this week with 3 games in 5 days. He's said he hates to miss games and is very proud of being extremely fit so he can play them all.

        I could see him getting subbed around the hour mark, but what's the evidence that he would miss GW38? Did Ole say something?

        1. Brimble82
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Agree. I'd like to see citation for 'Bruno not playing 38'.
          I understand why there's speculation due to proximity of EL Final, but I think it is simply that - speculation.
          It seems to be one of the popular things to say around here.

          But as I say - if OGS has said something, I'd love to see the URL.

    Have no idea which players to get for the Fantasy Euro game. At least something to keep me busy soon.

    1. Jambot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      David did an amazing team by team job last time. Hopefully we get that again

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I did not get to see his work last time. Hope he does it again.

      Afternoon mate, can I have your thoughts on my FH team...........Mahrez my risky pick and Jota a concern ( will see if Jota plays v Man U ) and Son on the bench dont feel right ? I am trying to break into the top 5k, am I being too safe or too risky ??

      Ederson,
      TAA, Dallas, Digne.
      Salah, Jota, Mahrez, Raphina.
      Kane, DCL, Bamford.

      Areola, Son, Coufal, Mitchell.....

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Greenwood over Jota. I would play Son over Mahrez though. Not sure if Mahrez will get enough mins.

        1. Brimble82
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Greenwood probably won't get many mins in GW36 though to be fair!

          I'd play Son over Jota, and just make sure you have someone to cover Mahrez in case he's a no show.

        2. Corgz Dark side of the Loon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Greenwood blanks in 36 ?

  3. Jässi
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    1 FT and 0.2 ITB

    A) Iheanacho to Antonio
    B) Iheanacho to Bamford
    C) Iheanacho & Watkins to Bamford & Antonio (-4)
    D) Something else?

    Current squad:

    Pickford - Guaita
    TAA - Dallas - Phillips - Shaw - Ward
    Salah - Bruno - Sigurdsson - Lingard - JWP
    Kane - Watkins - Nacho

    1. jonnybhoy
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      B

    2. Malkmus
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      B imo

  4. Pariße
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Selling Bruno & Greenwood gives me exact money to get Bale & Son but I'm not getting them both.

    Any other neat ideas for premium mids?

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Great story at the start....had me going lol

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Think those 2 you are getting are about the pick of the bunch this week assuming you have Salah.

    3. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      People saying Mahrez but not sure why so confident he starts

      1. Pariße
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        You can never know with him. Might get 16, might just get 0.

  5. jonnybhoy
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Mendy to

    A) Meslier
    B) Pickford (got Digne)
    C) other

    Cheers

    1. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Fabianski?

      1. jonnybhoy
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Like their fixtures but I have Coufal but they can't keep a clean sheet

    2. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I like B, although most folks on here will make it out like it is the last taboo to double up on Everton defense

      1. Studs Up
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        This...Digne & Coleman owner

  6. Cruz88

    • 6 Years

    Apologies if this has been asked many times - whats happened to Vardys assist from last night (not showing on the app or site)? Thanks!

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      There was no vardy assist..

      1. Cruz88
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Oh, wierd, Flashscores said so and the official account even posted about it. Guess it was recalculated, shame!

    2. Black Knights
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Tielemans set up Thomas and Albrighton set up Soyuncu. That's what happened to it.

  7. Fit_to_drop
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Shred this lot

    FH Team for GW 36

    Team value is pretty decent 106.5 or so. OR 190k. Just trying to finish as high as i can.

    Pickford
    Trent Tarko Zinchenko
    Salah Son Bale (c) Mahrez
    DCL Kane Antonio

    Forster,St Maximin, Mitchell, Stuijk

    Thanks!

    1. Pariße
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Triple Spurs is a bit much but apparently you really want Bale.

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I can leave him out. He is not in my permanent team but his explosiveness is attractive on FH. Who else is there in this GW? Rapinha yes, but he may be finding his way back to full match fitness.

        1. Pariße
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Mane & El Ghazi both rate high on shots per game. But even I would probably prefer Bale.

  8. Malkmus
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    A'noon all. 1FT, 0.2 ITB. Struggling a bit this week, only 7 x starters including veltman who may be injured.

    (Mendy) (4.0)
    Veltman* - Phillips - (Castagne - Shaw - Rudi)
    Son - Lingard - Salah (Bruno - Greenwood)
    DCL - Kane (Nacho)

    A - Nacho and Greenwood to Raph and Bamford (-4)
    B - Above with Shaw to Dallas (-8)
    C - Other

    Ta!

    1. artvandelay316
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      If defending a lead go with A, but if chasing at this point you may as well go with B.

      1. Malkmus
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Thanks. 2nd in one league, 1st in the rest so B is tempting.

  9. Boly Would
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    On FH, which to go for?
    a) Robertson + Bale + Sigurdsson
    b) TAA + Son + Eze

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I watched Eze in last nights game. Decided not to punt on him this week as part of my FH team.

      He is decent but not threatening to get points each game.

      1. Boly Would
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Cheers, didn't see it last night so good to know.
        Tough one because I prefer TAA + Son, might see if I can find the extra money elsewhere for Sig too

        1. Brimble82
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Bookmark Eze for next season.

  10. Pariße

    Willock (MCI) how about that one!

  11. Nemanja Vidic

    1 year, 1 month ago

    1FT 0.0 ITB

    Forster
    TAA Regulion Ward
    Salah Jota Son Maddison*
    Kane Watkins Nacho*

    Mendy Holding Rudiger Greenwood

    a) Maddison & Nacho -> Gundogan/Raph & DCL
    b) Maddison & Nacho -> Foden & Antonio/Bamford
    c) Maddison & Nacho -> Sigurdson & Bamford
    d) Maddison & Nacho -> Midd and Forward for 13.2

  12. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Is doubling up on Pickford/Digne really that bad?

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Those 2 home fixtures look great, but Everton nearly always concede at home. Plus Man City away on the final day too. I'd go with Digne but not Pickford.

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah, I also have Forster though, and he is likely to start GW 38

        1. Boss Hogg
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          I wouldn't want to predict who'll play in goal in GW38 for Southampton. I've got my old Sondicos ready just in case Ralph wants to give me a run out.

    Hi - currently sitting in the top 40k. Have my WC and BB chips still to play. Will be using WC chip this week, and aiming to BB in GW38 (currently 14 points behind my ML leader, who is all chipped out). Would welcome thoughts on my WC team for the final 3 GW's:

    Pope Dubravka
    Mee Dallas TAA Coufal Godfrey
    Salah mane Lingard Son Raphina
    DCL Bamford Antonio
    0.1 ITB

    The team above means that most of my players (including those on BB) will play one of the following teams on the finl day: SHU, WBA, CRY, SOU

    Possible weaknesses:
    No Bruno
    Punting on Mane and Antonio instead of Kane & Jota
    Son instead of Haverz or Greenwood (for example)

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Godfrey and Dominic will be against Man City plus possibility if rotation, so GW38 may not be the best time for BB. I would look at 37 for BB.

      1. ClassiX
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Thanks - good point on GW38 rotation risk. Was planning to exit DCL & Godfrey on GW38 to get in Wood and AN Other for that final GW.

  14. Michelle Davin

    Just a google notification that the line ups fir tomorrow is available.

    Is there something we dont know?:)

    Greenwood starts 🙂

  15. KAALI_DAAL

    Vardy to Bamford?

    Other strikers are Nacho and DCL.

    1. Jambot

    I find it surprising that there are now several websites, livefpl etc that can update leagues and ranks instantly yet the FPL site still takes hours!

    1. Brimble82
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It does seem to be unnecessarily slow.
      One of the big differences being that livefpl doesn't update all accounts - it only does the account that you are logged into and then for each ML it has to take time to retrieve the data for said ML.
      I know it's only 9 secs per ML, but if you are doing 8m+ accounts and (heaven knows how many) MLs, then you would expect the main site to take longer as their data needs to ensure that all info is available for all.

      But yes, I agree, it could/should be faster!

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mark and the others deliberate for hours on who should get bonus points, assists, etc.

  17. Fuddled FC
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Who to prioritise

    a) Fofana > Dallas
    b) Greenwood > Raphina
    c) Greenwood & Nacho > Raph & Bamford/DCL (-4)
    d) Fofana & Greenwood > Raph & Dallas (-4)

    1. ExpressoMySonny

      A

  18. Stupendous

    We expect full strength Chelsea today?

    Mendy Azpi Rudi in particular

    1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. FPL Theorist
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It's Tuchel, he'll probably bench one of Azpi or Rudiger since they both started the last game.

    3. HashAttack
      • 5 Years

      Mendy deserves a rest after that incredible penalty save!

    OGS on Maguire: "A ligament injury is serious. Very positive (on making Europa League final) is maybe stretching it, I'm hopeful he might be ready for it. I don’t think he’ll play in the league again but we'll do everything we can to get him ready for the final."

    1. No Professionals

      no surprise.

      Going for Maguire & JWP over Phillips & Greenwood was yet another marginal call I got horribly wrong.

  20. No Professionals

    Interesting to see Salah racing ahead in the captaincy vote.

    Kane was unlucky not to get at least one against Leeds, and Wolves has been awful of late.

    Personally, I'd have Son and Kane ahead of him.

    1. PaladinVargas
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      The dilemma of the week whether or not to own him.

      Hesitant to lose Bruno for him though.

    2. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Spurs will have had 8 clear days rest before they play Wolves so I think any lingering doubts about Kane's fitness will be done. I think Kane is now a great shout for the rest of the season. I've got lucky going without him the past few weeks; not so sure I'll keep that up.

    The link to the Euro 2020 fantasy league here on FFS just takes you to a blank UEFA Euro 2020 page. Is the game actually up and running yet? Doesn't look so from the rest of their site, just a page about the rules...

    Some help needed folks. Player in would replace Gundo/Jota.

    I have two options for the rest of the season.

    Maddison and Nacho will leave my team, who's coming in.

    A Mahrez Antonio
    B Raphinha Ings

    Currently leaning on B

    1. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Raphinha and Antonio?

    2. ExpressoMySonny
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

  29. ExpressoMySonny
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Which transfer option this week? Currently siting 185k is it worth taking a hit to claim the ranks?

    A)Bruno and Jota to Son and Mahrez for -4
    B)Bruno and Mendy to Meslier and KDB for a -4
    C)Bruno to Son

  30. Bob_the_builder

    On 74 with Bruno(c), Shaw,TAA, Jota, Martinez, Digne and Siggy left. Chances of sneaking past 100?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      it will be close. Everton could be the best source of points if they can keep that form going.

    2. FPL Theorist
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      90%

    3. HashAttack
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      On 76 with same except Salah & Greenwood instead of Martinez & Siggy

      Could have had an annoying +18 points playing Forster & Dallas instead of Schmeichel & Watkins
