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.

    So twisting from Perisic to Mbappe wasn't the right decision... Damn it

    1. Bank$y

      I did the exact same move.

      Perisic > Gilmour
      Mbappe > Immobile

      For MD3

    2. BooYaKasha

      Loading up on France on LL was even worse

    Yes Jota starts

    1. Hy liverpool

    4 points from 3 players in this game.

      Right…..but on the bright side, it makes match day 3 more interesting, although picking French players will still be a headache.

    Any of the Belgium defenders safe for MD3?

    1. Rainer

      Vermalen, if he can make 60'.

        Ya not sure if he will

      Who can play instead of Meunier?

  5. Hy liverpool

    Hungary fans are awesome.. 1 point is well deserved for this team.

  6. Rainer

    Brilliant from Hungary, amazing scenes with the fans.

    1. Qaiss

      They could have won that tbf. Hope they can somehow get a win against Germany, but will be tough with the game in Germany.

  7. King Kohli
    • 8 Years

    Other than Belgium, do we know of any other likely starters from other teams?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Swiss and Ukraine players should be nailed as well

  8. FFSbet.com

    LL fail Mbappe,Benzema,Kane...

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Mbappe, Kane and Lukaku for me

  9. MShalkz
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Would you guys wildcard this team for MD3 or can I get by with just 2 free transfers (Already used Limitless)

    Donnarumma/Hradecky
    Alba/Hinteregger/Maehle/Wijndal/Denayer
    Yazici/Berardi/Alaba/Insigne/F Torres
    Lukaku/Depay/Ronaldo

    With transfers I'm thinking Yaremchuk and Gnabry in for Lukaku and Yazici (Depending on Italy team news)

      There is going to be lots of rotation...I would not dream of WC this round mate.

        Contradicting yourself there pal. A WC to target nailed players and the rotations is perfect.

    Well my captain attempts so far have been garbage.

    All out in 66 this week with 62 in the first.

    MD1
    Berardi (6)
    Eriksen (1)
    Depay (2)
    P Torres (6)
    Bruno (3) - final selection.

    MD2
    Spinna (6)
    Zinchenko (2)
    Sterling (3)
    Mbappe (2) a final selection.

    1. JohnnyRev7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I've be OK/lucky/psychic/casual:

      MD1
      Beradi (6)
      Lukaku (20) - Stick

      MD2
      Beradi (6)
      Yarmalenko (20) - Stick

      But fluking/nailing a 20pt (c) earlier in both MDs enabled me to focus on the rest of my sub decisions. I'm taking about 1-2 pts decisions. 🙂

  12. JohnnyRev7
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    All out on 74 (58 came on Thursday).

    Good luck to everyone with players still to go. 🙂

    1. BrutalLogiC

      Just need a hattrick and clean sheet from Alba and I'll be right up there with you..

  13. Aubamazette

    Surprised so many people went Mbappe over Griezmann, was always Griezmann for me

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I'm surprised people even trusted England and France to use their LL after their crap first game displays.

    2. FFSbet.com
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Surprised how both of you are surprised

      1. dark91
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Surprised you are surprised they both are surprised

        1. Kai
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Surprised that you are surprised he was surprised that they were both surprised

      2. Aubamazette
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Griezmann on Pens, freekicks, corners, Griezmanns scoring/assist record better than mbappes for france, current from i believe Griezmann had 5 goal involvements in last 7 Mbappe has had 1. Mbappe better suited against teams that he can run in behind rather than low block. So yes I was surprised.

        1. Aubamazette
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          5 goal involvements in last 6 france games for Griezmann and 2 for Mbappe*

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          A cursory glance shows that - unless I'm mistaken - you haven't mentioned Griezmann at all in 30 days of posting dude

          Can see plenty of references to the likes of Szeczeny Eriksen Cancelo double denmark defence etc... But strangely no Griezmann

          Why must you lie like this?

          1. FFSbet.com
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Thats why he is surprised,he thought it was common sense and all will get Griezman

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Yet not one response to all these alleged pro-Mbappe opinions that were supposedly floating about.. The ones that suprised him so much...

              That's the real surprise here

          2. Aubamazette

                  Atertiming bullshit like that just drags the place down tbh

                  Such a passionate advocation of Griezmann is very easy AFTER he's scored...

                  You must have mentioned dozens of players over the last 30 days... Just (suprisingly) not young Antoine 😉

                      I don't doubt you picked him - I'm sure loads of people did in the hope that he might do something

                      I just don't think popping in to say how you knew all along he was the much better pick than Mbappe really holds water when you didn't once mention it - if you'd mentioned him even once that'd be absolutely fair & no issues

                      You seemed to be far more vociferous in promoting the likes of Arnautovic for example

                        I have not been on this website since md1, I do not post all my opinions in here. I did not just come into this article to gloat, why would i gloat about 4 points extra from griez. I came to read and first page I saw a lot of people talking about how Mbappe failed them so I was reacting to that. Intention was not to undermine anyone's decision If it came across like that apologies. Just would have thought that the Mbappe/Griezman decision would be 50/50 due to reasons mentioned above

                        Relax bud. Everyone can have an opinion. You, me, anyone. I had Mbappe and hindsight says Griezmann. (Smile)

    Possibly the worst chip week in any fantasy game ever...

    Anyone else on MD3 wildcard going all out on Premium defenders? With fixtures considered, is there somebody decent I've missed from this lot: Rodriguez, Gosens, Augustinsson, Emerson & Meunier.

    I know Meunier is a rotation risk, but willing to take that chance. And obviously we get Italy lineups if Emerson doesn't start.

    1. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Currently Rodriguez meunier toloi ptorres gosens

    4. RogDog_jimmy

      I am just about!

      Spinna, Meunier, Dumfries, Gosens (and P Torres)

      I figure 3 of them will play and I’d rather 3 awesome options than cut-rate ones. Not spending on super premiums elsewhere so it works out.

  17. That Was Easy!

    Do I need to WC this?

    Wijndal Toloi Spin Maehle P. Torres
    Schmeichel Bachmann

      You could get by with 2 transfers. I’m wondering if I could too, but am also concerned that NOT WC’ing is being too clever. Tough to say how transfers will pan out in the knockouts.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        All depends on the Italians. If immobile and Berardi start I think I could get away with two transfers. Else wc for sure
