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.

    If u have Yarmalenko but not as captain do we want him to score more?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      For sure

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yep. As it assumes other involvement.
      Not worried about % owned just my players getting points (Yarmo & Zinchenko)

    Was torn between Yarmelenko and Lukaku captain, went with Lukaku and now watching this game thinking he's got his work cut our to beat Yar

    Yarmolenko plays for a defensive team they said.
    lol

  11. The Tinkerman
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Well, Malinovsky over Yarmolenko was a mistake 🙁

  12. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    If Zinchenko isn't going to get an attacking return, Ukraine can concede.

  13. Wild Guus Chase

    Screw Lukaku points later (don't own him) - it's all about captain Yarms!! Stick or twist? Mmm, I know what I'll be doing!

    1. buzzkill
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Stick all day long. Pumped for a brace 2nd half!

  14. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    My own fault. I said 9 shouldn’t be a first day (c) stick and you need to be bold…

    Ah well still good points

  15. Bookkeeper

    1. buzzkill
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      It's only the Euro, have some fun with your captains - it'll all be over soon! The game is about fun, not playing conservative

  18. Fifa las vegas

    1. Fifa las vegas
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Lovely turn by him there in the box though

  19. Nomar
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Try some 30 yarders, Zinchenko!

    1. Fifa las vegas
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      With tap ins for Yaremchuk after rebounding off the keeper please!

  20. RogDog_jimmy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Oh poor Pandev. What a class chip finish that was. But also phew as a Zinchenko and Bushcan owner.

  21. buzzkill

    Happy days Yarmo captainer here! Changed from Lukaku this morning. 22 points hopefully plus whatever he can muster 2nd half.

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Good man. Same boat!

      1. buzzkill
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Snap. Don't push the luck though.

      1. buzzkill
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Would you settle on another assist now or gamble it on more? (totally hypothetical!)

    3. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Not to be a buzzkill but I bet he is subbed at 60/70 minutes!

      1. Wild Guus Chase
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'll take the points, though it would be nice if he stayed on.

        1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Well done on getting him I played Wildcard so I went cheap on Malinovsky.

          1. buzzkill
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Hopefully he gets a return 2nd half for you

          2. Wild Guus Chase
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

      2. buzzkill
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Probably but I'm happy to bank the double digits and run!

  22. Lindelol

    Captain Yarmolenko one more goal please

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Yes please!

    2. Garlana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I just came on to gloat about Yarma (c), can i do it here?

      1. Nimby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yeah same here please. What a bad boy call that was. Only 2% owned!

        1. ivantys
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I don't think LL adds to his ownership

        2. buzzkill
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          We're all doing it mate, go nuts

    3. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Confident Malinovskyi will get something yet.

      1. Wild Guus Chase
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I think he will so deadly from set pieces

    4. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      He's in on goal just jumps on the ground 😆

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Must have Yarm captain

      2. Richarlidad
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Streetwise.

    5. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Glad to see the referee give the yellow for simulation, don't see that enough

    6. ivantys
        1 month, 16 days ago

        The refereeing standards in this euros is top class.

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Sure has been. Almost refreshing.

        2. Fifa las vegas
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          You’d miss the VAR banter all the same.

        3. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          True and VAR has been totally spot on in the few interventions so far.

          Which proves the point, problem is not VAR, problem is PL officials operating VAR. Same goes re refs. Look at the quality and compare with English refs... huge gap.

          1. ivantys
              1 month, 16 days ago

              The problem is they don't book players for diving after looking at the replays and always take 5 min to draw all those stupid lines thus making the games so slow.

          Great choice captaining Zinchenko over Yarmo

          1. hullcityfan
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            It means we get to twist to Kane for his hat trick

          2. Nomar
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            At least we can change it.

          Hey mates! Long time no see. I'm still alive and back! Glad to see this site is still around. I'm playing in the FFS fantasy league but I joined late. I've gotten off to a fine start today with both Yarmo and Yarem on my squad. Anyways, better late than never I suppose 😉 Wish me luck!

          Just crossed 100 overall points

          LOVE to see it

          1. buzzkill
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Very well played dude

          I got fed up with all the messing around to get a bench boost team, only for two of them to not appear and getting only nine points from it. This year, I will play an early bench boost, get it out of the way and then wildcard fairly soon after.

          Looking at a GW2 BB of Liverpool, Man City, Villa, Brighton with at least 2 and then maybe around the edges, Tottenham (can always bench in week 1), Man Utd, Leicester, Palace.
