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.

    I'm actually surprise not more than 2% went for Yarmo. Plum fixture, now look what he's doing. Great differential there.

    Comparing HT shows on different broadcasts, ITV may have the best panel in terms of names but wow, don't think i've seen panelists sitting further apart than they are right now haha

    Need another return from Yarmolenko(C) & an attacking return from Zinchenko!

    Yarmalenko and Yaramecuk in FanTeam. Yarmalenko in limitless. Beautiful!

    how many points do you think Yarmolenko will score today for those who captain him ?

    1. Meimei
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I will go with 34 points

    Guys Yaremchuck style of play reminds me of Jiménez

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      True that, basically the exact same height as each other as well. Wonder if Jiminex will be in many FPL teams next season or if people will handle with caution

      1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Jiménez 1m88, Yaremchuk 1m91 though 😀

        1. Thomas Magnum

          Wolves website and wikipedia has him at 6'3 190cm whilst transfermarkt has him at 188 as you say, interesting...

    1. Babit1967

      Same, well actually Insigne 3 pointer will make way

    I am enjoying this LL chip. Maybe they should introduce it in FPL and take out BB.

      It maximises the potential of your squad.

      Not really sure why you're happy about this, even if twisting from 6 points it's good to have it as an option

    Sold Alioski on WC on Monday.

    1. vickyz r3d d3vil$ !!!
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Did exactly the same..but brought Yarmelenko(C)..so no regrets for now

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

        Bought Zinchenko instead.

        Never learn, me.

        1. vickyz r3d d3vil$ !!!
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Surely Zinch was tempting..but i just went for Fernandes and got busted.

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

            At least there's no dilemma on whether to take the armband off him now though.

  18. Bookkeeper

    Zinky cappers....

  19. Sleepless in Settle FPL
    • 9 Years

    Alioski 1-0 Zinchenko

  20. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    4pts net for Alioski?

  21. Hryszko
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Looks like L Hernandez is coming in for Zinch!

  22. RogDog_jimmy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Bushcan up to 7 points!
    Quality from the keeper.
    No need to twist to Simon now.

    Bummed the rebound went right out.
    But 2 pk saves from 2 match days is pretty lucky.

    1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      0 from 10 years playing FPL

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah pretty wild to get 2 in a row from a Finish and then Ukrainian keeper.

        Will try get the third next week. Then we’ll know I’m a jammy bugger.

    1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago
