After FFFrog’s article on the best UCL Goalkeepers, it’s time to begin planning your Fantasy UCL teams in preparation for the start of the competition next Tuesday. In order to help you plan your teams, comments below this dedicated article will be limited to UCL Fantasy only – feel free to discuss your latest thoughts, drafts and ideas!
For those of you new to the game, I strongly recommend giving ElFozzie’s beginner’s guide to UCL Fantasy a read to get you up to speed before you dive into setting your Matchday 1 teams up.
