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.

    Yarmo 10 points locked in.

    Should have been more.

    Yarmo subbed.... strong 10 points

    Damn Yarmo(C) goes off.

    1. The Reptile
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      why is he going off, are they shutting up shop?

      1. vickyz r3d d3vil$ !!!
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Looked a bit knackered. Hope Ukraine sees it through for him to be motivated for MD3

  4. Ask Yourself
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Yarmo rested for MD3’s haul

  5. Sleepless in Settle FPL

    yarmilenko off phew

  6. RogDog_jimmy

    Love North Macedonia making a game of this. Super fun now.

  7. Hryszko
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Those who have captained Yarmo, sticking I'd assume?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Think so- Kane/Mbappe would need to score 3 to better

    2. Bookkeeper
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      yes stick, can't see anyone scoring higher this Matchday.

    3. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Yep! But ask me again when France is up.

    4. amplifiedAnt
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Yup, with a strong "thank you very much".

      Will take the striker options getting 3 returns to beat that.

    5. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      20 points - twisting is just greedy

    6. vickyz r3d d3vil$ !!!
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      No more greedy. Hope he ends up as a strong differential captain.

    7. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Yes. Twisted from Bale yesterday, but I think the double figure haul will do it.

  8. hullcityfan
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Zinchenko on pens

  9. Sleepless in Settle FPL
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    bye Ukraine Jimenez

  10. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Yarmolenko stick or twist for Kane/Mbappe?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Think either get 3 returns? Or 2 + win a pen.

    2. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Stick. double figure score for me = stick no matter who plays

    3. dark91
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Same question but I am leaning towards sticking. I sticked with Lukaku last week and saw people who switched getting punished

  11. ivantys
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Shevchenko trying to close shop with 20 min to go...

    • dark91
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Just woke up and saw Yarmolenko (c) scored a goal and assist. Opened the game to watch him and boom, off he goes 😀

      It is a stick even with the likes of Mbappe and L.Hernandes right?

      1. dark91
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        And Kane of course still

      2. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        100% a double figure score in day 1/2 for me is a stick

        1. dark91
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Agree 100% thanks
          Mbappe or Kane would need to score 2 to match Yarmolenko for example. They are both capable but not worth taking the risk

    • BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years

      Lol, that drum has seen better days.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        King mentality. His job is to play the drum, so he'll play the drum no matter what condition, even if it is completely broken haha

        1. BeaversWithAttitude
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Haha. In your face, Roger Taylor!

    • It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      One more please Yarmo(c)!

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Oh he’s subbed

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Heheh

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        He's off

      3. Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        he's subbed off earlier and already had his shower!

    • Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Yaremchuk captainers are we thinking of sticking or twisting?

      1. buzzkill
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Absolutely sticking. Will bank my 20 points and say thanks a lot. Mbappe should do well vs Hungary but he'd need a hattrick to beat Yarmo and odds are against us.

        1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Yaremchuk

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Yaremchuk not Yarmo.

        3. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          hahaha Yaremchuk not Yarmo, if I was a Yarmo C'er I would definitely stick though, nice C choice.

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Certainly not moving the captaincy. I'll add Mbappe score to the 20 points, thank you.

      3. Fifa las vegas
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Twisting for sure, Mbappe

    • Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Malinovskyi is brilliant.

    • dark91
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      What a miss

    • Sleepless in Settle FPL
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Sheva seems a good manager

    • Do I Not Like Orange
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Yarmolenkonan easy captaincy stick, yeah?

      1. dark91
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yup. In the same situation and will be sticking

    • dark91
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Without cheating, who would you think has recorded the top speed so far at Euro 2020?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Mbappe vs Hummells the other night? Might not have covered enough distance to register though.

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yarmo, on his way to the shower

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Spinazzola. Seen it all over the place.

        But it might actually be Mbappe on that insane run vs Germany.

        1. dark91
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          It's Mr. Spinach indeed

      4. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Absolute lottery of course with loads of quick players but Mbappe’s run against Germany was blistering, so Kylian i’d say

      5. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Portugal?

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years

          Oh speed not seed lol

      7. Thomas Magnum

        Arnautovic, fastest to get suspended...

      8. dark91
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Seen lots of Mbappe mentioned, well, he is not in the top 5 at all 😀

        I think Hummels slowness made Mbappe look extra fast

    • DrexciyaXI
        1 month, 14 days ago

        2-1 up and badly need to kill the game off in the last 20 minures with a third or even fourth goal? Taking off your two proven goalscorers in red hot form seems a dumb move. ...And I'm not just saying that because I have them both in my team.

        1. Cruyff's Eleven
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Yarmo wasn't going anywhere. Had to go.

        2. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          If they hold out, as they should, and they're fresher for Austria, it ain't the worst decision.

          1. DrexciyaXI
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Yarmo would have scored that pen!

          2. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 14 days ago

            I agree.
            Seems a little weird especially with how well they were linking up.
            Yarmo looked exhausted so I get that one.

          Zinchenko been quiet today unfortunately. Zinchenko and Fernandes punts failed.
