Digne and Pavard start for France as Hungary call on €4.0m man Négo

Lucas Digne (€6.0m) comes into the France starting line-up as they face Hungary in Matchday 2.

The Everton left-back replaces Lucas Hernández (€6.5m) in a back-four that also contains a fit-again Benjamin Pavard (€6.0m). That’s good news for the 5% of EURO Fantasy managers who own the right-back.

N’Golo Kanté (€5.5m) remains a popular Fantasy figure with 45% ownership, eight percentage points more than Kylian Mbappé (€12.0m).

The PSG forward is paired with Karim Benzema (€10.0m) up-front while Antoine Griezmann (€11.0m) occupies the number 10 role once again.

Elsewhere, Fantasy managers invested in budget Hungary midfielder Loïc Négo (€4.0m) have had their patience rewarded as he comes in for his first star of the tournament.

The bargain option is bettered only by Kanté and Mbappé for ownership in this opening encounter of Matchday 2’s fourth day.

Hungary XI: Gulácsi; At Szalai, Orbán, Botka; Fiola, Schäfer, Nagy, Kleinheisler, Négo; Sallai, Ad Szalai.

France XI: Lloris; Digne, Kimpembe, Varane, Pavard; Kanté; Rabiot, Pogba; Griezmann; Mbappé, Benzema.

    Hernandez benching is annoying.

      Brought him on for Malinovskyi (scored 0), so even if he gets a 1 pointer, it's something. But ye, kinda annoying.

    Probably already covered on here somewhere, but do players' price rises from MD2 come into effect before MD3 deadline? On wildcard so if there's a chance of snatching a few more 0.1Ms I'll take it.

      Price changes aren't until after group stage is finished

      1. Fifa las vegas
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        You better have a look through the transfers page then

    2. FantasyHero

      Ya I am not certain either. But def price changes are already happening.

  4. BENOIT

    Best Germany midfielder for GW3?

    1. Fifa las vegas
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Currently have Gnabry on WC draft, not certain yet though.

    2. Bielsa's Bucket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Gnabry for sure

  5. Milkman Bruno

    Really Pavard. Yellow card 🙄

  6. Moxon

    Mbappe is awesome

    1. Fifa las vegas
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Just pure class

  7. Fifa las vegas
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Should’ve been buried by Benzema, beautiful touch from Mbappe.

    What a miss Benzema

  9. dark91

    Benzema wastes a beautiful Mbappe assist

    Formula 1 car stalls...

    Love the green socks……love the color pallet of the Tournament, very pleasing after covid.

    Went with Mbappe, but think the points will come from Benzema.

    1. Jafooli

      Seeing a full stadium here is the best thing about the tournament so far.

      Hardly watched a game over the past year and half....

    2. Jafooli

      And yeah good Hungary kit, reminds me of British Lions look

    Transfermarket has the England squad valued at 1.26 billion euros, the highest of all teams in the Euros.

    England is worth more than Barcelona, R Madrid, Chelsea and Man City.

      In theory*
      Half of them won't get their price tag if they are to play outside England

    2. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That’s crazy objectively, but less so when you consider the premier league is the richest league. Plays in England and English players therefore cost a premium.

    3. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I can't see how the team is over rated when it's worth so much.
      On paper England surely must be good enough to reach the final stages.

    4. Tinkermania

      That's just a number assigned by the author. They could easily change the figure to 800 million or 3billion. Means nothing. It's click bait and something for you to talk about.

  13. Arteta
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Maddison, Aouar, Bissouma, Lokonga, White, Aarons, Onana.

    Break the bank!

    1. Arteta
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Wouldn't mind Grealish, Isak, De Paul, Camavinga, Locatelli or Odegaard but they're probably staying or going somewhere else.

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Isak would be a dream signing

    3. Dr. Rog

      I'd prefer Arsenal just focus on their weaknesses and build a team actually capable of something over 3-4 windows.

      First steps - bring back Saliba from the wilderness, signing a top CB and then not even playing him is the most arsenal thing ever, and improve the central midfield - Neves or Bissouma.

      A creative signing would be nice, but with ESM, Saka, Pepe, Martinelli the team is pretty well stocked there already.

    Hungary lead!

  20. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘

    4.0m defender scored

    1. tiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      And he's called Attila...it's too good

  21. Cilly Bonnolly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Serves them right for benching Hernandez.

  22. KGFC
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Damn it.. Lloris CS gone 🙁

  23. Nomar
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Kimpemba CS goes.

  24. boc610

    how can france be this bad to watch?

  25. deyell
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Fiola essential

  26. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Pavard has been very poor. France underplaying the extent of his head trauma?

    1. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I’ve read a few articles about this and still can’t understand how you can be knocked out yet fine to carry on…

      1. Vertigo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        How many articles did you read?

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      So has Varane - lots of fouls

  27. Milkman Bruno
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Ronaldo and Cancelo to Mbappe and Pavard is working well!

  28. Milkman Bruno
    3 months, 8 days ago

    After a good MD1 (83) I’m having an awful MD2 (20) as things stand. Need Mbappe C to step up second half and Spain to do well for me.

  29. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Malen & Wijndal likely starters for Netherlands for MD3?

    Worth risking them in wildcard?

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Malen's worth a risk.

  30. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    I wonder if Fiola is a descendant of Attila the Hun
