Belgium lead Russia after Finland beat Denmark

Belgium are leading Russia in their opening EURO 2020 match thanks to the most-popular Fantasy asset Romelu Lukaku (€11.0m).

The Inter Milan forward converted a Dries Mertens (€9.0m) in the 10th minute and dedicated his strike to club team-mate Christian Eriksen, who was hospitalised during Denmark’s meeting with Finland.

The former Spurs man collapsed during the first half and received CPR from medics before being transferred to hospital where he managed to be stabilised, subject to further examinations.

After just under an hour, the contest was resumed, in which Joel Pohjanpalo (€6.0m) scored the only goal of the game and 34%-owned goalkeeper Lukas Hrádecky (€4.0m) saved a Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (€5.5m) penalty.

Meanwhile, popular Fantasy defender Jason Denayer (€4.5m), owned by 22%, missed out on the starting line-up for Belgium, who deployed Derdryck Boyata (€4.5m) in the back-three with Jan Vertonghen (€5.5m) and Toby Alderweireld (€5.5m).

Eden Hazard (€10.0m) and Kevin De Bruyne (€10.5m) are not involved due to injury.

Belgium XI: Courtois; Vertonghen, Boyata, Alderweireld; Castagne, Tielemans, Dendoncker, T Hazard; Mertens, Carrasco; Lukaku.

Russia XI: Shunin; Zhirkov, Dzhikiya, Semenov, Fernandes; Ozdoev, Barinov; Golovin, Kuzyaev, Zobnin; Dzyuba.

    Playing limitless in week 2. Then what to do with Schmeichel, Kjaer and Eriksen after? Did not want to use the WC yet. Will also have Bruno who will play France, Allioski playing Netherlands and who knows if Denayer will start.
    A headache coming up.

      Why not just wildcard instead then if it creates that many issues? It’s not a weakness to deviate from your original plan.

    MD1 Stick or twist thread - Sunday

    Goal of this thread:

    - Concetrate captain questions in one place for efficiency
    - Increase the value of answers by forming a template with the minumum required contextual information

    The idea is to post your:

    - current captain and score (before doubling)
    - potental future captains remaining (in order)

    For example, your post should look like this:

    "
    Eriksen - 1
    Depay
    Lewandowski
    Cancelo
    "

    Once posted, please reply to others with "Stick" or "Twist". It would also be nice to have some explanations, so more people can benefit from working through the decision in their brains without reposting a Stick or Twist question!
