Fantasista Tips — Gameweek 8 of Champions Fantasy

With most ties still to be decided, a lot is on the line in the 2nd leg of the Round of 16. The Fantasista brings you the crème de la crèmewhen it comes to differentials.

After an horrendous outcome in the first leg, with a scrappy 41 points for my team. On top of it, all 4 picks in this section returned ”blanks”, a fantasy manager’s worst nightmare.

So, there’s is only one path to go now: more differentials!

Federico Chiesa | Juventus | M | 7.6M | In 4% of teams

The son of the legendary striker of Parma has established himself amongst the big boys in Italy and in Europe. He scored in the first leg and is averaging 5.6 points per 90 minutes of play in Champions Fantasy. If you need to take a punt on the first day captaincy, this is the one!

Marcel Sabitzer | RB Leipzig | M | 8.0M | In 1% of teams

Liverpool are in the midst of 6 straight losses at Anfield. So, if you are a Liepzig supporter, you must be feeling confident going forward. The Austrian midfielder will be looking to command his team and achieve an historical night in Europe, he who was one of the most influential player in last year’s edition, when they reached the semi-finals in Lisbon.

Riyad Mahrez | Man City | M | 9.0M | In 2% of teams

One of the most in-form attackers of Pep’s unstoppable team, with 2 goals and 2 assists in the last 5 matches in the Premier League. If you have a spare free transfer and you want to bet on an explosive asset from City, he is the one.

Leroy Sané | Bayern | M | 9.5M | In 3% of teams

Another winger who is starting, 6 in the last 6 since the World Clubs Cup Final, and has form on his side with a goal per 108 minutes of play in the Champions League. A fabulous differential in the last day of this second leg!
