Yarmolenko and Zinchenko in midfield as Ukraine face North Macedonia

Oleksandr Zinchenko (€5.5m) is the key EURO 2020 Fantasy asset as Ukraine face North Macedonia on the second day of Matchday 2.

Classified as a €5.5m defender, the Manchester City man is, once again, in the usual midfield role he fulfils for his country.

In what looks like a 4-5-1 formation, Andriy Yarmolenko (€8.5m), who scored against the Netherlands in Matchday 1, features on the right-hand side of midfield.

The West Ham man is something of a differential in this match, owned by just 2% of EURO Fantasy managers.

Ruslan Malinovskyi (€7.0m) and Roman Yaremchuk (€7.1m), who assisted and scored in Matchday 1, are in a similar position, both owned by 3% for this afternoon’s clash.

Meanwhile, Heorhii Sudakov (€4.0m) remains a non-playing option in the bargain defender bracket, although 10% own the Ukrainian.

Ezgjan Alioski (€4.5m) is the only North Macedonian with more than 1% ownership for Matchday 2, currently sat in 3% of squads.

Ukraine XI (4-5-1): Buschan; Mykolenko, Matviyenko, Zabarnyi, Karavaev; Malinovskyi, Zinchenko, Stepanenko, Shaparenko, Yarmolenko; Yaremchuk.

North Macedonia XI (3-4-1-2): Dimitrevski; Musliu, Velkovski, Ristovski; Alioski, Spirovski, Ademi, Nikolov; Bardi; Elmas, Pandev.

    For those wondering, Gnabry was not in training, not because he is injured, it was a rest day for him per Sky Sports Germany

        1 month, 10 days ago

        Even worse cause neither were involved in the goal lol, hopefully the defense will open up more now and allow more chances to the 2

    Zinchenko doesnt even look like he isgood enough to play for ukraine let alone Man city

    Only good for sideways passing. Gives the ball away everytime he tries to pass it forward

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Doesn’t seem to have the range of passes to play as a defacto 10. understand Ukraine wanting to get the most out of him but it’s not his role for a reason.

      Ukraine should figure this out still. They got way more quality on the pitch and it shows.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Lol hit ‘post’ as that went over the line.

    2. Sleepless in Settle FPL
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      he is overrated, he has been usually used in easy City games, then he got something, then Pep think he is a great player, used him in Champions league final lol stupid. That Haverts goals was also his error position

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah never understood how he ended up first choice towards the end of the year.

      • 11 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Only needs to keep a clean sheet, anything else is a bonus surely

      1. Nomar
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

    I chickened out of Bales to Yarmolenko (c).

    He’s looked great so far in this game and well deserved goal

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Like Bale, he could have a lot more already.
