The talent pool keeps dwindling down and it’s getting harder than ever to extract points from differentials.
If the first leg of the Round of 16 cost me 27 places in the overall rankings, the second leg was no different, falling 26 more.
Languishing in #72, I am going to need a bit of magic to return to the top.
And you already know how we roll around this corner…It’s differential time!
Bernardo Silva | Man City | M | 8.0M | In 3% of teams
The “little prince” has started the last 5 games in the Champions League, scoring 4.8 points/game with 0.8 SoT/game.
He is probably the player most responsible for the upturn in form regarding the last 25 games in all competitions, and should play a key role in a constant interchange with Kevin in the hole.
Both should get chances aplenty against “zee Germans”, but he is the real differential in City attack.
Moussa Marega | FC Porto | F | 6.5M | In 2% of teams
With his fellow attacking partner suspended for the first leg of the quarter-finals, the strong African forward from Mali is the best bet to nick a goal against Chelsea.
Three of his four home matches have registered a goal involvement, two goals and one assist.
Him and Choupo-Moting are good bets for the ones who want to save funds on the third striker spot.
