UCL Fantasy Matchday 2 will once again be split across two days with team’s from Group E-H playing on Tuesday and team’s from Group A-D playing on Wednesday.
UCL Fantasy Matchday 2 Defensive Rotation:
The table below displays which teams have the best chance of keeping a clean sheet based on the bookies odds (converted into an implied chance percentage). It’s also a useful visual aid for preparing your lineups as it separates the teams into both days. Make sure that you have ALL of your Tuesday defenders in your starting lineup and if they under-perform you can substitute them for your defenders who feature on Wednesday.
UCL Fantasy Matchday 2 Attacking Rotation:
The below displays which teams have the best chance of scoring two or more goals based on the bookies odds (converted into an implied chance percentage). As we previously mentioned, make sure that you have ALL of your Tuesday midfielders and forwards in your starting lineup and if they under perform you can substitute them for your players who feature on Wednesday.
UCL Fantasy Matchday 2 Transfer Tips:
Sergio Aguero (£10.0m) vs. Celtic
The Manchester City striker is a must-have on FPL and should arguably have the same status on UCL Fantasy following his Matchday 1 hattrick against Mönchengladbach. This Wednesday he faces Celtic who had seven put past them in their opening match.
Edinson Cavani (£9.0m) vs. Ludogorets
So far this season the PSG striker has scored seven goals in seven matches (all competitions) including his Matchday 1 goal against Arsenal. He’s available at a slightly below premium price of £9.0m and has a good upcoming run of fixtures (Ludogorets: A, Basel: H, Basel: A).
Sebastián Coates (£4.5m) vs. Warsaw
If one of your defenders didn’t play last week or has tough fixtures on the horizon, then it might be worth taking a punt on Coates. The Sporting Lisbon defender has two home fixtures in the a row, faces Warsaw this week and has found the net twice this year in Liga NOS.
UCL Fantasy Matchday 2 Captain Tips:
We’ve listed our top captaincy options for each day of Matchday 2. If your captain from Tuesday returns less than six points we recommend changing him for a player who features on Wednesday.
Higuain vs. Dinamo Zagreb. Although Juventus have a poor away record in the Champions League, Higuain is one of the most instinctive strikers in world football.
Aubameyang vs. Real Madrid. A bold pick, with huge upsides. The striker has form on his side (6 goals in his last 5 matches) and as he plays on the Tuesday, the captain’s armband can be passed on if he doesn’t perform.
Ronaldo vs. Dortmund. The three-time Ballon d’Or winner has faced Dortmund twice away from home comforts, scoring on both occasions. There has been 19 goals in the last six fixtures between the sides.
Aguero vs. Celtic. The little Argentine has recorded hat-tricks both of his Champions League outings this season. Celtic are a strong unit in Glasgow, but will not be able to contain for 90 minutes.
Suarez vs. Mönchengladbach. We mentioned a instinctive finisher already, but here’s another one for good measure. Barcelona will dominate anyone on their day, and with Messi out, Suarez will have to step up.
Sanchez vs. FC Basel. Arsenal were impressive during their 3-0 victory over Chelsea at the weekend. Sanchez contributed with a goal and an assist, so will look to carry this form onto the European stage.
