It’s that time of the year again: 32 teams start their quest for Ol’ Big Ears, Europe’s most wanted trophy. Here are the best picks to start off on the right foot.
Here we go again. Just a short break after the most raucous season ever, but this time with a different accent: in English, from the UK!
The ones who already followed this little corner of the #ChampionsFantasy in the past, you already know what you are getting: potential bargains and/or differentials.
So, with that in mind, lets dive into our research and the four picks highlighted for this gameweek.
Álvaro Morata | Juventus | A | 6.5M | In 5% of teams
The real “winner” from the absence of Ronaldo, who’s infected with the “new” Corona virus. Not only does he cost just 6.5m, he plays in the early kick-off of Day 1. A trip to Kiev should offer plenty of chances for the Spaniard, one of the best options for your first captain of the competition. A gift, from me, to you!
Emil Forsberg | RB Leipzig | M | 7.0M | In 3% of teams
One of the main reasons why RB Leipzig is leading the Bundesliga. Two goals and one assist in 4 matches, a guaranteed spot in the attacking trio, he’s an explosive asset against the inexperienced Turkish champions. İstanbul Başakşehir is off to a slow start, only 19th in their league, with a single win in 5 games.
Albert Vallci | RB Salzburg | D | 4.0M | In 5% of teams
From one Red Bull to another Red Bull, we come across this budget defender from the Austrian side. They face Lokomotiv in the first batch of games in Day 2, and between clean sheet odds and attacking flair, this guy is a “must have” for our squads. A starter in the last 4 games, scored in the last 2 and had an assist in the second game of the Champions League playoff. In form!
Hans Hateboer | Atalanta | D | 5.5M | In 4% of teams
Fully rested in La Dea’s defeat to Napoli last Saturday, the Dutch “sprinter” started the Lega Serie A on fire. No cleanies so far, but 2 goals in three games!!! Atalanta is up against the Danish side of Midtjylland, a team that survived every playoff round to get into the group stages, but for sure will not be able to contain the powerhouse Gasperini is building in Bergamo.
