Euro 2020

Bale stars despite penalty miss and Locatelli nets brace as Italy advance

TURKEY 0-2 WALES

  • Goals: Aaron Ramsey (€8.5m), Connor Roberts (€4.5m)
  • Assists: Gareth Bale (€9.5m) x2

It was a mixed performance for Gareth Bale (€9.5m) as he inspired a 2-0 win for Wales in their second group-stage match at EURO 2020.

The premium midfielder lived up to his price with two assists although a missed penalty and a meeting with Italy’s imperious defence in Matchday 3 is unlikely to put off mass investment.

Wales goalscorer Aaron Ramsey (€8.5m) had a big chance early on in this match but shot straight at Ugurcan Cakir (€4.5m), having opted to turn a defender rather than square for Kieffer Moore (€6.5m).

Burak Yilmaz (€8.0m) then went close at the other end as Turkey broke on Wales. A Chris Mepham (€4.5m) block proved crucial to denying the Crescent Stars’ captain.

Ramsey got on the end of another big opportunity after 23 minutes, firing well over after being found by an excellent Bale pass.

Turkey then saw two off-target headers nodded away from goal by Wales midfielder Joe Morrell (€5.0m) during a succession of corners.

The Bale-Ramsey combination eventually paid dividends for Wales after 42 minutes, with the Real Madrid man sending a superb pass over the Turkey defence to find another great run from the Juventus midfielder.

Ramsey took Bale’s long pass down on his chest before sidefooting the ball into the corner of the Turkey net.

Yilmaz missed a gilt-edged opportunity of his own after 53 minutes, firing a volley over from six yards out while unmarked.

Bale then let Turkey off the chopping block, having won a penalty for a foul by Zeki Celik (€4.5m) just on the edge of the Crescent Stars’ box.

Bale stepped up but ballooned his effort way over Cakir’s crossbar, in an effort more reminiscent of a rugby conversion.

Ramsey eventually turned provider for Bale with a dinked cross inside the box but the Wales talisman could only head straight at Cakir.

“When you have quality like Dan James, Aaron Ramsey, Gareth Bale, Kieffer Moore, you are always going to cause teams problems. We want to go into every game to win. We will have to be mindful of Italy but we will pick a team that can go and compete.” – Interim Wales boss Rob Page

And it was Bale’s magic that sealed the three points for the Dragons during injury time. The midfielder twice conned Turkey into thinking he was time wasting, only to skin a defender and make his way into the box.

Bale shot himself the first time, winning a second corner. On that occasion, he danced into the area before teeing up Connor Roberts (€4.5m) for a first-time finish.

“The penalty miss was obviously disappointing but that’s where my character and fight comes in. I kept going and made up for it with the two assists.” – Gareth Bale


Turkey XI: Cakir; Meras (Mulder 72′), Soyuncu, Ayhan, Celik; Calhanoglu, Yokuslu (Demiral 46′), Tufan (Yazici 46′); Under (Kahveci 82′), Yilmaz, Karaman.

Wales XI: Ward; B Davies, Rodon, Mepham, Roberts; Allen (Ampadu 72′), Morrell; D James (N Williams 90+3′), Ramsey (Wilson 83′), Bale; Moore.

ITALY 3-0 SWITZERLAND

Locatelli bags his and Italy’s second

  • Goals: Manuel Locatelli (€5.5m) x2, Ciro Immobile (€10.0m)
  • Assists: Domenico Berardi (€6.0m), Nicolo Barella (€7.0m), Rafael Toloi (€4.5m)

Italy’s defence continues to reward Fantasy managers as they recorded a second clean sheet of EURO 2020 and their tenth in as many internationals.

However, whether the Gianluigi Donnarumma (€5.5m) and his colleagues can offer the same Fantasy potential in Matchday 3 remains to be seen considering Italy have now secured passage to the second round – which could trigger rotation against Wales.

Ciro Immobile (€10.0m) may be hoping he can avoid any changes in personnel as he scored his second goal of the tournament against Switzerland and is sure to have one thought on a possible Golden Boot, given how far the Azzurri could go at EURO 2020.

But he now shares the mantle of top goal-scorer among his colleagues with budget midfielder Manuel Locatelli (€5.5m), who netted twice on Wednesday evening.

Giorgio Chiellini (€6.0m) headed Italy in front after 19 minutes but was harshly adjudged to have handled the ball before lashing home.

Seven minutes later, Locatelli started and finished a sumptuous move to put the Azzurri ahead.

The midfielder hit a sweet volleyed pass out to the right flank, finding Domenico Berardi (€6.0m). The winger made his way into the box before squaring for the onrushing Locatelli to sweep past Yann Sommer (€5.0m).

Leonardo Spinazzola (€5.5m) put in two crosses and had one shot inside the box in an all-action display from left-back in the first half.

Locatelli added an outside-the-box goal on 52 minutes, giving Sommer no chance with a super strike after being teed up by Nicolo Barella (€7.0m).

Immobile put the icing on the cake for Italy and his owners with a 25-yard strike just before stoppage time.

That left Lorenzo Insigne (€8.5m) as the only starting member of the Azzurri’s front three without an attacking return against the Swiss.

Italy are now through to the second round, with their clash against Wales on Sunday set to decide who tops Group A.


Italy XI (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Spinazzola, Chiellini, Bonucci, Di Lorenzo; Locatelli (Pessina 85′), Jorginho, Barella (Cristante 85′); Insigne (Chiesa 68′), Immobile, Berardi (Toloi 68′).

Switzerland XI (3-4-2-1): Sommer; Akanji, Schar (Widmer 57′), Elvedi; Rodriguez, Xhaka, Freuler (Sow 84′), Mbabu (Zuber 57′); Shaqiri; Embolo, Seferovic (Gavranovic 46′).

FINLAND 0-1 RUSSIA

  • Goals: Aleksey Miranchuk (€6.5m)
  • Assists: Artem Dzyuba (€8.5m)

A stunner from Aleksey Miranchuk (€6.5m) banked three points for Russia on Wednesday in a match that hinged on Fantasy favourite Lukas Hrádecky (€4.0m).

34% of EURO Fantasy managers own the Finland goalkeeper, who could not replicate his 13-point haul from the Matchday 1 win over Denmark.

In truth, this was less than an inspiring affair, with the first shot on target not occurring until late into the second half, although Russia did ramp up their efforts in the second.

The Miranchuk’s curling effort, while surrounded by four players, came from an Artem Dzyuba (€8.5m) assist just before half time.

Russia wing-back Mario Fernandes (€5.5m) was forced off after 26 minutes after an awkward fall. His participation against Denmark in Matchday 3 must now be in doubt.

“The players were a real team today. They fulfilled what they had to do and got the win. The formation I chose, I think, was right. To break down their defence we needed to use the wings and we did. The plan worked.” – Russia head coach Stanislav Cherchesov

Finland did have the ball in the net in the first half through Joel Pohjanpalo (€6.0m) but his header was ruled out for offside.

Teemu Pukki (€7.0m) left the pitch after 75 minutes despite Finland trailing, though no explanation was given by head coach Markku Kanerva.

Finland face a huge test against Belgium next Monday, needing a draw at least against the world’s No 1 ranked side.

“We defended well and going forward we improved on our display against Denmark. We didn’t manage to score but we had good situations: some shots that went narrowly wide, others were blocked. It was a really close game. Belgium are the number one team in the world and we will face a really great challenge. We still need to get at least one point and we will do everything to get it. I trust in my players; they have shown before they are capable of doing almost impossible things.” – Markku Kanerva


Finland XI (5-3-2): Hradecky; Uronen, O’Shaughnessy, Arajuuri, Toivio (Jensen 84′), Raitala (Soiri 75′); Kamara, Schuller (Kauko 67′), Lod; Pohjanpalo, Pukki (Lappalainen 75′).

Russia XI (3-4-2-1): Safonov; Dzhikiya, Diveev, Barinov; Kuzyaev, Zobnin, Ozdoev (Zhemaletdinov 61′), M Fernandes (Karavaev 26′); Golovin, Miranchuk (Mukhin 85′); Dzyuba (Sobolev 85′).

    Bale could have had an absolute monster haul

    1. Cilly Bonnolly

      That penalty miss was a fourteen point swing. I don’t want to be greedy but man, I could have been out of sight in my minileague already.

    Capt for tomorrow?

    A - Zinch
    B - Yarm
    C - Lukaku?

    I’m leaning towards Zinch or Yarm as I’ve used LL so have more strong options…

    1. Michu stole my mojo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years

      I have B & C and I’m going Yarmo

    2. RogDog_jimmy

      I have A and B and am going with Zinchenkooooooooooo

    3. mezza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      We’ll have the Ukraine lineups before the deadline so may go Zinchenko if it looks like he’s playing advanced

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Good call

    4. GreennRed

      Lukaku.

    5. Balls of Steel

  3. 272MK

    Will Italy's player get rested? It's around 11days between now and Last 16.

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Dunno. But we benefitted by them putting out a weaker team in the third round in Euro 2016. COVID times too, they might rest a few first teamers.

    2. Utopsis
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I'm convinced Immobile will after playing 90 today, dunno about the others.

    3. Aster
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      -

  4. Deulofail
    • 8 Years

    Do I have money to spare?

    Sanchez 4.0
    Trent Robertson Digne Dunk Cresswell
    Salah Bruno Foden Buendia 4.5
    Antonio Watkins 4.5

  5. Cilly Bonnolly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  7. The Reptile
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Twisting Berardi's 6 C points tomorrow but have Yarmolenko, Depay and Tielemans
    Who to switch to to? Not really considering Tielemans but tough choice between the other 2

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Depay

  8. Bielsa's Bucket
    • 12 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Are the Bale 18 points enough, I don't think so. Lukaku time!

    1. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Can't decide!

    2. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Can see the appeal of going for more but bear in mind you NEED Lukaku to score two to better Bale.

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Madness. Stick with 18

    4. LSK
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Stick

      1. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Hi LSK. I posted earlier to thank you for convincing me to hang onto Bale for MD2. Didn't captain him but 9 very welcome points. More than thanks for your advice 🙂

    5. Aster
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      They are enough to me

  9. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    So shifting captain from Insigne > Lukaku, got Hernandez, mbappe & pogba on the bench.. am I safe to swap pogba in for Insigne?

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Not before the 19th.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Wait for sure. Someone could get a 2 or worse.
      Would be silly to sub out now.

    3. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      No reason to do subs until the day the guy you’re bringing in plays.

  10. You've got red on you.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Probably been asked a ton but stick or twist on Bale captain?

    Still have Kane, Foden, Sterling, De Bruyne, MBape, Griezmann

    1. Costa Nostra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      You have to decide for yourself.. don't rely on the goofballs on this site!

      In saying that it comes down to do you think any of those other players will outscore a 9 pointer?? If so then do it. If not then stick...simple!

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      9pts is a lot and if other C scores 10 you miss out on 1pt

    3. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Stick.

    4. CaptMidnight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      To find the answer, answer this riddle - what's brown and sticky?

    5. LSK
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I’m sticking. Easy decision imo. If somebody gets a brace and outscores him by 1 point it’s not a big deal.

    6. Marmalade Forest
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      What’s the point in this game?

      No one cares if you come top 100,1000 etc.

      Twist. The only way to win this is if you captain a freak score.

    7. Aster
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Stick

  11. dirtmcgirt
    • 8 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Unless I get a monster haul, I'm beginning to think I shouldn't have followed the crowd and used limitless rd2 and played it in md3 instead. Might have missed France points in md2 vut would have been OK otherwise. but now I'll definitely have to use wc when I was keeping it for the quarters. Might set a calender alert for next time around lol

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I think LL3 will be awful. People will load up with expensive assets in later games that get rested

      1. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Nah but I see what you're saying. Plenty will get burned doing Harrods shopping when Lidl has the players that will start. Avoid teams already through. We'll know the lineups of the 4 teams playing on Sunday, though I'll avoid Italy.

  12. KneejerkJoe
    • 9 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    If i sub Pogba out now, can I sub him back on, on saturday before the games? Forgot to put him on bench AS he plays on last gameday.

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Should be fine. The rules are a bit ambiguous for me. I think you only lose points for subs out whose game has finished. Maybe someone else has tried to confirm.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      This was covered elsewhere earlier. You can’t do it.
      Pretty sure someone learned in MD1.

      Once a player is subbed out they’re out for good - no matter if they played already or not.

      But also everyone has a different story - so I’d just read the rule and follow it to the letter.

  13. Balls of Steel
    • 8 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Is MD3 the best time to WC ? Looks like it could be s minefield trying to predict lineups!

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      How will you know later game line ups? Team locks before first game no?

      1. Balls of Steel
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Just the fact that teams already through to last 16 will rest players!

    2. CaptMidnight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      It'll be hard but I think it will be the most useful time to use it if you have players likely to be rested, or if you're me, picked a bad team. I'll just target the teams that still need a result.

    3. Maddi Son
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I'm doing it and going full blown gamble mode. e.g. If England beat Scotland, I feel confident that I can punt on the likes of Grealish & Sancho. Germany should be full strength against Hungary. (Gnabry, Gosens & maybe Muller) - We get Italy lineups early so should be able to get a cheap defender and cheap attacker (Di Lorenzo & Chiesa?).

      I'm not really too fussed about Euro Fantasy so I'm excited to gamble on a differential wildcard.

    4. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Avoid teams qualified, most rotation risks there. Bar Ronaldo probably! Anyone fighting to get through should have least rotation.

    5. LSK
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      KDB is one to watch MD3. Can’t see them not giving him a game before the knockouts.

      1. Paqueta Rice
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        I’d say Lukaku will play again too going for the golden boot. Hazard and KDB will both be in my LL team

        1. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          Hopefully both will play. Was gonna avoid Italy but sure we'll know their lineup before deadline.

    6. Aster
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Yea

  14. Fishy-o
    • 8 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    I’ve made a mistake and can only bring in one sub tomorrow. Who would you pick

    A. Wijnaldum
    B. Zinchenko

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      What's preventing you bringing in both?

      1. Fishy-o
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Coz I had Donna and spina Had clean sheets so want to leave them in
        The only other player that has played so far is Insigne, I’ll take him out for wijn or zinch
        If I take a player one for the other one on my bench then I can’t put that player back in

        1. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          If you've fodder that you have very low hopes for you could bench him for either Wijnaldum or Zinchenko. And Insigne for the other.

          1. Fishy-o
            • 8 Years
            3 years, 1 month ago

            Yes true but not sure what to do. My team is

            Donna Pickford
            Spin munier hernandes Dumfries zinch
            Insigne Sterling yarm wijn Pogba
            Kaku Kane Mbappé

    2. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Wijnaldum of those two.

  15. Paqueta Rice
    • 3 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    I knew Pavard had taken the hit to the head but seeing as he continued I figured he was fine and brought him in. Very annoyed with it.

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      He's not Johnny Sexton like! An auld tip on the ceann and some off these lads are out for weeks. Joking of course but there's no HIA being done in football just yet, it seems.

      1. Paqueta Rice
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        It was introduced though or at least UEFA had agreed that if a player had a sign of a concussion he was to be taken off. Pavard said himself he was out for 10-15 seconds and somehow managed to stay on…

        1. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          Yeah. Some rugby players used to be trained into how to fake the HIA. They'd learn off the answers to possible questions they were asked.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Crazy he continued playing. Was knocked out cold which he confirmed after the game. Was super obvious on replay too. Should be immediate sub.

      1. Paqueta Rice
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Totally agree. In hindsight it was an awful decision to bring him in but I figured as he continued playing he must be ok. Now he is flagged and likely not going to feature.

        1. No Kane No Gain
          • 5 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          He may still feature. The rules are different for the euros to the prem regarding concussions...

      2. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Think it was Varane mouthing at the ref. Didn't look like he was saying Mon ami est tres mauvais. Get the doc. More like, let him play on. But sure we don't know what he was at.

  16. sirmorbach
    • 8 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    De Bruyne in. Who goes out: Insigne at three points or Zinchenko up against Macedonia?

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Zinc

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Is he in? Someone mentioned tweet that him and Hazard not expected to start

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        i saw that too.

        I'm glad i took KDB out of my LL right before deadline - to avoid this exact dilemma.

  17. saurabh.06

      50/50 between 1 & 2 but I'd lean a little more towards Yarmo I think.

    Would you remove the captain on Berardi with his assist and 6 points?

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I’d remove if you were already chasing and/or you had a few decent backup options

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      agree - 6 points is just a clean sheet, even moving to an attacking defender on a good team would be a better shout at this point.

      1. No Kane No Gain
        • 5 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        What about my 7 for immobile?! Stick or twist

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • 3 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          probably twist. i feel like 8 points is a coin flip. 9 is a stick.

          all my opinion.

          i went
          Berrardi (6)
          Eriksen (1) (not Lukaku 10)
          Depay (2)
          P Torres (6)
          Bruno (3) (not Ronaldo 10)

          so not exactly good form on my end...

          1. No Kane No Gain
            • 5 Years
            3 years, 1 month ago

            I just feel twisting somebody who got more points than just a goal is playing is playing with fire..

            Unlucky with Eriksen but the Bruno over CR7 was self inflicted...

            1. RogDog_jimmy
              • 3 Years
              3 years, 1 month ago

              oh yeah - i'm a fool no doubt. lol.

    3. ItsJonesy
      • 13 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Yep.

  19. No Kane No Gain
    • 5 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Stick with immobile (c) 14 points or twist?!

    1. ItsJonesy
      • 13 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I'd switch as I am guessing you'd have at least 3 other decent captaincy options over the next few days.

    Best captain in today’s game
    (Thursday)

    A Yarmolenko
    B Lukaku
    C Wijnaldum
    D Meunier
    E Dumfries

    1. ItsJonesy
      • 13 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I like A. It's between A, B and Depay for me also but I think I prefer A for a bit of a differential.

  21. ★Kuntheman★
    • 8 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Anyone like a Meunier captaincy? He’s incredible when he plays for Belgium. Between that, Lukaku the obvious, and maybe Yarmolenko.

    1. Henryyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Lukaku

  22. ★Kuntheman★
    • 8 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Thinking this might be the year of five at the back to start in FPL, so many midpriced options did well last season and could be set for huge price hikes in the midfield and forward lines. Thinking of something like this:

    4.5 (4.0)
    5.5 5.5 5.5 5.5 4.5
    12.5 12.5 (4.5 4.5 4.5)
    12.5 7.5 6.5

    1. ★Kuntheman★
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      And of course you all know who the 12.5s are lol

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I swear the "this could be the year for 5 at the back in FPL" gets mooted early every season and abandoned a few game weeks gone

    3. 3 A
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Really? Lol. Good price option always there as not all high price players perform well next season.

      KDB from 200+ points can drop.

      Trent drop too with Cresswel goes another wayn round.

      I will play 343 or 352 after mid price option become clear.

      Think of Bundia, Sarr, Siggy, Gross etc.

    So tricky, have Bale captained with 9 points. Potential other captains

    Yarmolenko / Lukaku
    Kane
    Mbappe

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Take the 9. If other player you pick scores 10pts you are 1pt worse off. 11pts is 2pts worse off and so on

    2. kobewan
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      18 pts. would be enough for me.

    3. Scratch
      • 14 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Yeah i'll be sensible (boring) and stick

    4. Aster
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Stick

  24. kobewan
    • 4 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    I don't really see Italy rotating in MD3 looking at the standing Wales has 4 pts. had Italy has 6 pts. if they slip against Wales they could end up on 2nd place in Group A

    1. Henryyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      We will get the team before the deadline

      1. ZombieEaten
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        what time do we get lineups for the first game? Hadn't thought about that for my LL

        1. Calum Undisputed
          • 3 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          est 1hr before. prep for 2 lineup dont scramble

  25. Scratch
    • 14 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    If Wales and Switzerland both finish on 4 points is it decided by goal difference or h2h?
    Had assumed it was goal difference but the Sun (i know) says

    "Are Euro 2020 groups sorted by goal difference or head-to-head?

    If two or more teams finish level on points after having played all three group stage games, head-to-head record will decide which team finishes higher.

    This means that if three teams finish level on points, their position in the group will be decided exclusively on results against each other, with games against the fourth team being almost irrelevant.

    Goal difference will only come into play if teams can't be separated by their head-to-head record"

    Does the Sun have this ar$eways ?

    1. lugs
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      going of whats written here, it will be settled by goal difference between them, since their h2h finished as a draw

      1. Scratch
        • 14 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Aye I realised just after i posted that Switz & Wales was a terrible example, pity there's no edit

        1. lugs
          • 6 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          h2h first priority is probably right though, its fairer than running up a big goal difference against some minnow

    Team ahead of Matchday 3. Limitless being used this matchday.
    1. WC (Plenty I need to change. Lots of away games and tough fixtures).
    2. Make a couple of free transfers. (And just hope it becomes a mess of a week for all).

    Hradecky (BEL), Bachmann (ukr).
    Kjaer (rus), Maehle (rus), Bednarek (swe), Torres (svk), Pepe (FRA).
    Baumgartner (ukr), Insigne (WAL), Berardi (WAL) *Eriksen, Torres (svk).
    Lukaku (fin), Weghorst (mkd), Ronaldo (FRA).
    0.0m ITB, 2 ft's. Decent rank at the moment but targeted going strong early.

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      If the Italy lineup includes Insigne and Berardi then I think you’re ina decent spot.
      Spain’s draw suggests they go all out in their fixture.
      France in the tough group will want to get this win.

      Maybe wait until the line ups are made for those first games.
      Could do Eriksen out and either a defender or a keeper.

      I’m wondering if i pivot off my plan for WC MD3. Cancelo and Eriksen are my big issues.

  27. Sanchit

    So looks like it's better for England to come second rather than first?
    - winner of the group faces potentially France/Portugal/Germany
    - second in the group faces potentially Slovakia/Sweden/Poland

  28. Pukki Blinders
    • 4 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Who would you captain today?

    Lukaku or Depay?

    1. Holmes
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Luka

    2. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Lukaku.

  29. Holmes
    • 10 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Based on fixtures, tripling up on any team looks unlikely in FPL...

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I have no head space at all to look at the fixtures and think about fpl.

      1. Holmes
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Now that limitless is gone in Euro fantasy, I will move toward FPL slowly. Full time FPL after MD3 WC. 😀

        Pretty irrelevant though until player's price is released.

  30. SpaceCadet
    • 10 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Please pick my cap

    a. zinchenko
    b. yarmolenko
    c. meunier
    d. lukaku
    e. wijnaldum

    1. Holmes
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Luka for safety and Yarmolenko for fun.

      1. SpaceCadet
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 1 month ago

        Don't mind taking some punts as I have mbappe who I could cap on the last day if all else fails. Zinchenko maybe? Cs and goal potential?

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • 3 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          I’m doing Zinchenko for that reason.
          Fun.
          Also have Mbappe as the final day pick.

        2. Holmes
          • 10 Years
          3 years, 1 month ago

          That can also work. Just not sure whether Ukraine can keep a cleanie or not.
