CLUB

The best UCL semi-finals XI on the free-to-play Fantasy game, CLUB


Sponsored by CLUB


CLUB is a new, free-to-play mobile Fantasy game that allows football fans to create, build and sell their own digital football club and step into the shoes of a Club Owner (CO).

It’ll not just be Premier League players you can choose from but also those from Europe’s other top four leagues. They’ll score you points based not only on their performances in domestic leagues but also in European competitions, too.

CLUB’s intuitive scoring system promises to match the ‘eye test’ of football fans: so not only will there be the usual points for things like goals and assists, but there’ll also be rewards for the Declan Rices of this world!

Proper player positions are also a unique facet of CLUB – for example, you couldn’t have three specialist right-backs in your side.

And here we can see how the players would have scored in CLUB during the emotional and dramatic UEFA Champions League semi-finals over the last fortnight, with this dream XI taking both legs into account.

BEST XI OF ALL FOUR UCL SEMI-FINAL MATCHES

GK – Alisson (Liverpool)

The first few picks all belong to Liverpool’s backline, so we’re going to quickly get repetitive in our writing here! So firstly, despite not being represented in this XI, a shout-out to Villarreal and how uncomfortable they made Jurgen Klopp’s side by wiping out their 2-0 advantage from the first leg. The reliable Alisson conceded the fewest of all four goalkeepers.

RB – Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)

Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold took part in this round’s only clean sheet and also provided the cross for Luis Diaz to head home and make it 2-2 in Spain.

CB – Ibrahima Konate (Liverpool)

With Joel Matip getting Premier League matches, summer signing Ibrahima Konate is handed the Champions League outings. His CLUB score of 18.5 was the highest of all defensive assets.

CB – Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool)

A rock at the back for Liverpool, it’s never a surprise to see Virgil van Dijk in such combined XIs. Without him for most of last season, the Reds ended up far adrift of Manchester City in the league and crashed out of both domestic cup competitions in the fourth round.

LB – Ferland Mendy (Real Madrid)

The left-back assisted twice in the breathtaking first leg at the Etihad. His deep cross was converted by a left-footed Karim Benzema striker, while his pass enabled Vinicius Junior to score a wonderful individual goal.

CM – Bernardo Silva (Manchester City)

In central midfield, Bernardo Silva scored the decisive goal that won the first leg 4-3 and must have thought he set up a winner for Riyad Mahrez in Madrid. Little did he know that Carlo Ancelotti’s men were about to wake up and do something extraordinary.

CM – Fabinho (Liverpool)

Alongside the Portuguese international is Fabinho, scorer of the first goal in Liverpool’s own comeback win from Tuesday night. You’d never get the Brazilian featuring in an FPL dream XI – and this is where CLUB differs from most other Fantasy games.

RW – Rodrygo (Real Madrid)

Introduced in the 68th minute to replace Toni Kroos on Wednesday, the 21-year-old made himself a Real Madrid legend by first netting in the 90th minute, then again immediately afterward, to take the game into extra time. It was a monumental cameo from Rodrygo.

AM – Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

The first leg in Manchester belonged to Kevin De Bruyne. Fresh off delivering four goals and four assists from six league games, he provided one of each to put his side 2-0 up after 11 minutes. However, he struggled in the second leg and was withdrawn midway through the second half.

LW – Luis Diaz (Liverpool)

When Liverpool were in trouble at Villarreal, Luis Diaz was brought on at the start of the second half. The January signing soon headed home an Alexander-Arnold cross and suddenly the panic was over.

CF – Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)

Finally, Karim Benzema. Far ahead of the next highest scorer with 35.6 CLUB points, he once again proved his world-class credentials on the biggest stage.

Not content with hat-tricks against both Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, Benzema scored twice in Real Madrid’s first leg – including a cheeky ‘Panenka’ penalty just days after missing two spot-kicks at Osasuna. He scored another penalty during Wednesday’s extra time to seal a famous victory.

How Do I Play CLUB?

Like all the Fantasy games we know and love, CLUB users pick real players and score points based on their real-world performances.

CLUB takes it to another level in their next-generation Fantasy Football game. Here are the key features:

  • Select players from Europe’s top five leagues. With a bigger pool of players to choose from (Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1, Bundesliga), there should be a sizeable reduction in ‘template’ teams to help negate the effective ownership (EO) factor that a lot of us have come to hate in Fantasy Premier League (FPL).
  • Points are scored over multiple competitions. Not just their domestic fixtures but in both the UEFA Champions League and Euopa League.
  • An intuitive scoring system. For example, an N’Golo Kante defensive midfield masterclass would bring in a good score, regardless of whether he produced a goal or assist.
  • Play players in their real positions. Players will have designated positions based on historical performances for their team, so you will need to buy and select individuals who are able to play in your side’s formation. You can’t – for example – have four left-backs in your defence.
  • Live transfer market, with player prices moving 24/7. Forget staying up until 2.30am in the morning and biting your nails to see if Antonio Rudiger rises in price – a dynamic transfer market will see player prices fluctuate with regularity, based on their EO.
  • Grow your budget by being successful. It can be done by climbing the league rankings, winning cup competitions or growing the infrastructure via facilities and sponsorships.
  • Choose your Club name, badge and club owner avatar. We all love a funny team name, don’t we? Bayern Badonde and Bilbao Baggins FC are two of the best that we’ve seen so far, with CLUB allowing you to name your own team.
  • Select your kit, sponsor and upgrade your club infrastructure. Take off your Mikel Arteta hat and don your Stan Kroenke cap as you make upgrades and sort deals at boardroom level.

      If you're getting Tomiyasu you might as well get Tavares instead.

    Away from home, 10 men, need 3 goals to win. This just isn't possible for West Ham. Can't remember any team ever coming back from a deficit like this.

    It's over.

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Well, Real Madrid scored 3 goals in 10 minutes. WH are no Real Madrid, but never say never

      1. RN - Lyon Fan
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        yes but i also said away from home and 10 men

  6. putana

    would you play toney or gordon this week?

    1. Gizzachance
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Spose gotta go with the dgw player

    2. Alcapaul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 1 day ago

      Gordon

    3. dwain100

      2 months, 1 day ago

      Gordon

  7. Demba Demba
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Is Richarlison 1 YC away from a ban? or did I make that up?

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      no

  8. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Which is the better use of 2 FTs? No chip left.

    A: Odegaard + Kane > KDB + Nketiah
    B: Odegaard + Amartey > Dias + 3.9 MF
    C: Robbo + Gelhardt > Richarlison + Matip
    D: Laporte + Gelgardt > Richarlison + 3.9 DF

    Current Team are as follows

    Ramsdale
    TAA - Robbo - Cancelo - Laporte
    Salah - Son - Saka - Odegaard - Gordon
    Kane
    Sub : Amartey, Gelgardt, Greenwood, Sanchez

    1. Demba Demba
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A for me

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Thank you. A looks like the highest upside choice.

        Late idea is C as Robbo's rest is expected, but still hesitated.

        1. Demba Demba
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah it was between A and C for me. Who do you drop from the starting lineup in A and C?

          1. NATSTER
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            For A, KDB & Nketiah will start in places of the Odegaard & Kane who exit.

            For C, Richarlison start and it's between Odegaard and Gordon for first sub. Likely Odegaard on the bench.

    2. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Like A

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Thank you.

    Best defender up to £4.4m this week only?

    1. putana
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      i was looking at holgate

    2. Jimmer887766
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Tavares

  10. Jimmer887766
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Thoughts on the Bench Boost team?

    Foster, Schmeichel
    Robbo, Cancelo, James, Tavares, Digne
    Salah (C), Havertz, Coutinho, Ramsey, Saka
    Weghorst, Kane, Nketiah

    All are DGW except Weghorst

  11. JariL
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Does Havertz and Mount to Son and Gordon make sense here? Had a horrible GW35 but hard to improve this BB36 team before FH37:

    0.1ITB

    Schmeichel
    TAA / Cancelo / James / Laporte / Matip
    Salah / KDB / Havertz / Mount
    Nketiah

    Foster / Pukki / Dennis / KDH

    1. Alcapaul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yea like those moves.

    2. tbos83
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I think so - no Spurs cover could be costly

    3. Demba Demba
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Looks good

    4. dwain100
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah, go for it

  12. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Rangers flying the flag for the UK. Would love to have seen a West Ham vs. Rangers final.

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah - good luck to them! Helpful to Scotland rankings too I suspect.

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      WHU won't beat Frankfurt

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Hence why I used past tense... 😉 🙁

    3. Klaren
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      After how they handled the Zouma incident, I'm glad they didn't make the final.

  13. Il Capitano
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    0.3m ITB - 1FT

    Ramsdale
    TAA Robbo Cancelo Laporte
    Salah Saka Kulu Raph
    Kane Pukki

    Foster - Nketiah Ramsey Doherty*

    BB36, no FH for 37:

    Just do Doherty to a 4.9m defender? Or is it worth taking a hit somewhere to fund a more expensive defender?

  14. Francescoli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    With Robbie likely to get a rest one game this week, would you play Reece James over him (currently my first sub)?

    1. putana
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      he is more likely to get one game

  15. Alcapaul
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Havertz to?

    A) KDB
    B) Son

    1. tbos83
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B

    2. Not again Shirley
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

  16. BUZZBOMB
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    As a lifelong Celtic fan, I hope Rangers do this. What a campaign theyve had and deserve this on the night so far despite the ref's attempts. I doubt theyll end with 11 men tho.

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Well said that man.

  17. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Will FH in 37, thoughts on Kane, mount and Kai to rich, KDB(c), jota for a -4?

  18. Fernandito
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    James to Dias or Matip worth a -4?

    1. putana
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      not really

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No. Maybe for free. Not a hit

  19. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Has there been any injury news on Ben White? Currently on BB36 so need to make a decision on whether to keep or sell

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No word as of yet, Arteta presser tomorrow should reveal all

    2. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Update tomorrow I'd imagine

  20. ShackledAce
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    On BB, 2ft

    A) Robbo/Dennis -> Laporte/Richarlison
    B) Havertz/Pukki -> Saka/Richarlison
    C) Robbo/Havertz -> Sessegnon/Son
    D) Keep

    Schmechel Foster
    TAA Robbo Cancelo Alonso Eroyal
    Salah KDB Havertz Mount Gordon
    Pukki Dennis nketiah

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I like B

    2. dwain100
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B

    3. ShackledAce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Cheers

  21. Biggsy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Looks like Richarlison due to rise tonight. If he does, it prices me out of Broja, Gelhart & Barnes to Richarlison, Dennis & Gordon (-8) for BB. Would you:

    A. Do moves tonight.
    B. Risk him not rising, knowing that might mean holding Broja + 4 or taking another hit (-12 total) but getting benefit of Friday pressers.

    1. AzzaroMax99
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Is he safe from suspension mentioned earlier?

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I can't see it moving quick enough, if it did happen. Lot of outlets suggesting a decision unlikely before end of season with Police involved

      2. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I'm wondering too.

  22. AzzaroMax99
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Would you go for 3rd def or mid from Liv/City?

    I have Salah&Robbo + Kdb&Cancelo, so not sure who to get. Matip/Laporte or Jota/Diaz/Foden/Mahrez

    1. BUZZBOMB
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      If not on FH I'd go Laporte followed by Matip. If FH, Diaz, Foden, Mahrez.

      1. AzzaroMax99
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        No FH. BB active, just a transfer or two.

    2. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Diaz would be my pick.

    3. dwain100
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Thinking about Diaz as well

  23. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Why was Mendy marking Tammy in that corner?

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      He made no attempt to jump or hinder Abraham.

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Probably didn't expect Tammy to score a header. He barely ever could at Chelsea!

  24. JabbaWookiee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Werner and White to who for 36 & 38?

    A) Richarlison & Laporte
    B) Jesus & Matip

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Probably B

    3. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

    4. JabbaWookiee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      or (C) Jesus & Laporte (/4)

      1. Alcapaul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I like this if you have a FH for 37. A if not

        1. JabbaWookiee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I do. Not that keen on taking a hit but if they’re both gonna start all 4 remaining games I don’t mind. Richarlison def will and is also fighting, which is the dilemma.

  25. Francescoli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Stade Vélodrome is boiling tonight. Best atmosphere in Europe.

  26. rilo

    Is it worth Sell Sterling for Salah ? I have also Jota and dont own more City mids

  27. Oggle22
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Schmeichel
    TAA White James Laporte
    Salah Saka Havertz Kulu Mount
    Kane

    Ramsdale Schar Cucho Richardson

    Still have BB

    Kane/Cucho/Richardson/Havertz/Schar to Richarlison/Watkins/Iheanacho/Rorigo/dias -12?

    Cheers

    This week only :
    A) TAA and Nketiah
    B) Matip and Jesus
