Liverpool’s Diogo Jota (€8.5m) is preferred to Joao Felix (€8.5m) for Portugal’s EURO 2020 opener away to Hungary in Budapest.
Jota, as is the case in FPL, is classed as a midfielder in the tournament’s official game and the ex-Wolves man will form part of either a front three or front four, depending on the deployment of Bruno Fernandes (€10.5m).
With an ownership figure of 26%, the Manchester United midfielder is the third most-owned Portugal player.
Plenty of Fantasy managers will be twisting their captain’s armband onto Cristiano Ronaldo (€12.0m), who sits in 29% of squads, this evening. That trio are set to be joined in attack by Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva (€8.5m).
Silva’s club colleague Ruben Dias (€6.0m) is the most-owned Portugal asset, however, with a huge 39% of managers opting for the centre-back. He begins in defence alongside Pepe (€5.0m).
With Joao Cancelo now out of the Portugal squad due to a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, Wolves defender Nelson Semedo (€5.0m) is drafted in at right-back.
On the opposite side of the defence, the experienced Raphael Guerreiro (€6.5m) is preferred to bargain option Nuno Mendes (€4.5m).
For Hungary, the 34%-owned budget midfielder Loic Nego (€4.0m) only makes the bench.
Any EURO 2020 Fantasy managers who had planned to substitute in the Hungarian may now prefer to stick with whoever they were going to replace. Roland Varga (€5.0m) is also on the bench in Budapest.
Hungary XI: Gulacsi; Botka, Orban, Attila Szalai; Lovrencsics, Kleinheisler, Nagy, Schafer, Fiola; Adam Szalai, Sallai.
Portugal XI: Patricio; Guerreiro, Pepe, Dias, Semedo; B Fernandes, Carvalho, Danilo Pereira; Jota, Ronaldo, B Silva.
