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.

              Surely only if your other keeper hasn't played.

          You just knew the £4m keeper that stayed on your benches would get a penalty save, and probably a CS too.

          Why wouldn’t you play Hradecky if your main keeper hasn’t played yet?

              This, I dont understand some of these comments 😀

                Literally what I’m trying to figure out Hradecky made perfect sense given his price too...

            • The Red Devil

              1 month, 13 days ago

              How was that not off? Seemed off from the eye

              Lukaku goal was outside the box?

              Just seen Hradecky saved a pen. Played him last minute.

                Played Schmeical instead! Damn

                  Two keepers playing on the same day not a good idea.

              2. Nomar
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Don’t have him, so at least I don’t have the dilemma of benching him.

              1 month, 13 days ago

              Sorry but we now give sympathy pens in football!? VAR officials should all be sacked. I want Denmark to get an equaliser as much as anyone but that’s the worst dive you’ll ever see. Pens are often missed when player knows it shouldn’t be given so not surprised player missed. Shouldn’t have that situation in today’s game with VAR though.

              Playing Kasper ahead of Hradecky..

                1 month, 13 days ago

                Why did you select two keepers who play on the same day ?

              Finland is going to win this tournament.

              only 5p for pen save on this game

                  That doesn’t change the fact I want more

              • 6 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Why wouldn't you play hredaecky? Unless you've got Donna, you'd be playing him, hope Lukaku doesn't score another, I capped Eriksen

              1 month, 13 days ago

              Any reason why Meunier and Denayer are not playing. Rested or not first choice?

              1. The Red Devil
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Seems castagne first choice

                1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
                  • 12 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Right thanks. I did not see that Meunier would be left out.
                  Denayer maybe. Assumed that Meunier was a definite.

                  1. The Red Devil
                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    Meunier is on for castagne

                      At least that is something.
                      Jayus as I type the fecker scored. Haha that is hilarious.

                      I was running out of subs because I started that 4.0m18yo Ukraine midfielder. Doubt he will start so I need all the points I can get.
