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.

    Can we do substitutions in between a day matches in official UEFA Euro fantasy?

      Yes

      Your whole initial team selection should have been based on the order of the matches. This made it easy to ignore German and French players as they play last.

  3. FDMS All Starz

    So why didn’t Thorgan get the assist for that Munier goal? Are they claiming mertens got a touch to that cross/shot??

    One shot the whole game to wipe out double clean sheet, where have I seen that before

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Was annoying but had the fin keeper so luck balanced out for me to an extent

      I’ve got it in mine but realistically I was never gonna play him.

    Class line from Damien Duff on Irish TV there:

    'Belgium are called the golden generation, maybe going forwards, but at the back they are the golden oldies'

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      The manager has such an old, worn-out base to work with under pressure, he should be called Roberto Shartinez

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        So far, not too leaky, but you wait until something surprises them

    Probably me being thick but can we make any transfers yet or do we have to wait till Matchday 2 on June 16th? TIA

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      We have to wait for it to update annoyingly, so another couple of hours or more I think.

      1. bobbyg
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thanks Deulofail. Do they come into play staright away though or Matchday 2?

        1. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Matchday 2

        2. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Click on Matchday 2. And you can make transfers for that MD2 team there.

      2. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Oh sorry, I thought you meant subs.

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      You can make transfers right now and up until the deadline of 14:00 on June 16

        Thanks guys. Appreciated

  8. 7shadesofsmoke

    Do player values change in this format of the game?

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Nope

      1. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        The simplicity is actually quite refreshing

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Of my answer? 😆 fair enough!

          I much prefer to play without persistent, incremental and/or opaque price changes. Wouldn't mind transparent and signposted adjustments to prices throughout the competition, though, FPL included.

      2. 7shadesofsmoke
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Beautiful. No need to scramble around worrying about affordability being affected by the early movers

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I thought in MD3 prices change based on performance but could be mistaken

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        The only mention of "price" in the rules:

        Budget
        In Fantasy Football, each player in EURO 2020 is assigned a virtual price. You’ll get an initial €100 million to spend on your squad, which rises to €105 million from the round of 16 onwards.

      I just logged on and seen the results. Absolutely awful for Eriksen and thoughts are with him. Don’t even want to celebrate Hradecky in goal.

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Permission to celebrate granted

        1. Milkman Bruno
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Everyone owns anyway

      2. Silecro
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Should i stick with Insigne captain (8pts), or twist? (Depay, Torres and Bruno left)

        1. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          twist. I would want a minimum return of 10 points

        2. 7shadesofsmoke
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I’m twisting. Same decision

        Thank god I have the most nailed on Belgian defender, Denayer, to rely on after double danish defence debacle…..

      4. Mac90

        Nego to come in to save the day for Maehle???

        1 month, 18 days ago

        First time for me playing a FF outside of premier league so hoping someone can help.

        I’ve got Hradecky as my keeper on the bench with 13 points and Szczesney in my starting 11 still to play. Is it tough luck with the 13 points gone or do I have a window to swap my keeper, if yes then when as this part of the game alludes me.

        Cheers in advance all

        1. Bank$y
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          He already played. Your only hope is an auto sub if your Polish keeper doesn’t play.

          1. Mike2795647
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Cheers, assume I should have started the first keeper to play each week to have option in future game weeks
            also, is there a limit on number if subs?

            1. Revival
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              No limit on subs, yes you need to start the first keeper to play each week to have the option to sub him out for another

            2. Gizzachance
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Play all your early starters first, gives you sun opportunity’s

        2. BeaversWithAttitude
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I don't believe you can swap players once they have already got on the pitch. That is why you should put in the players that play first, even if you don't expect much from them.

      6. Mac90
        • 7 Years

        I just woke up. This is not what I was promised

        1. 7shadesofsmoke
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Remember that feeling! I think it was in laos and we’d been on all night opium bender… hang on… It’s not the same is it?..

      7. Steager

        1 month, 18 days ago

        i get playing limitless in groups and was planning to.

        However my team now needs surgery with Eriksson, Barradi, Yacizi, Denayer etc.

        So anything wrong with doing the widcard in matchday 2 to set up for matchday 3 to?

        And save the limitless for later now.

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          You would then probably play in QF’s post last 16 being whittled down to 8 so pool of players much less.

        2. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          or Limitless matchday 2, wildcard matchday 3. We have unlimited transfers for round of 16 and everyones team will be the same by the last 8 anyways so I don't see the point in saving a chip for that.

      8. Mac90

        Any Fantasy game that does not require you to play from start and yet can still win???

          I think international fpl suits me better as well. The long club fpl season does not suit me
          Kept it simple.

              I do didn't captain Lukaku though. I was happy enough with Insigne. I assume most who captained Lukaku did not have Meunier!
