UCL Fantasy: Possible Lineups and Notes - Group B, C & D

by - September 12, 2017

Group B:
UCL Fantasy Group B fixtures


  • Areola has started every match this year, Trapp has little chance of playing but we may see rotation between league and Europe

  • Draxler gets the nod maybe in front of Rabiot, it depends on the system 

  • Di maria injured

Star Man: Neymar (11.0)
Bargain: Areola (4.5) – if he plays he is incredibly cheap for PSG’s defence


  • Alaba injured for tomorrow, Rafinha to start at LB

  • Vidal suspended for 1stmatch

  • Thiago or James to play at AMF, possibly James

  • Tolisso to start alongside Rudy, otherwise Thiago with Tolisso benched

  • Sule slightly ahead of Martinez at CB, tough call though

Star Man: Lewandowski (11.0) – on pens and free kicks too
Bargain: Sule (5.0) – if he starts he is a cheap route into bayern’s defence

Group C:
UCL Group C fixtures


  • Godin was rested with Valencia, so he may start with Roma

  • Lucas Hernandez has a lot of games this year, he has been good, he may start at LB in front of Luis, or even CB in front of Savic and Gimenez. Difficult position

  • Thomas has started many matches in front of Gabi, but I can’t see Gabi not playing in CL

  •  CF is the most difficult position to predict, with Vietto, Torres and Gameiro battling. Should avoid them for sure


    Star Man: Griezmann (10.0)
Bargain: L. Hernandez (5.0) – if he retains Simeone’s trust


  • Conte admitted that rotation is essential with this schedule, and to be honest they play against Qarabag so it’s natural. So it’s a bit difficult to predict

  • Conte also admitted that Hazard needs some game time, so we may see him introduced from the bench

  • Zappacosta very possible to get his first start in front of Moses

  • Fabregas may be rotated with Bakayoko, but he is essential to the team right now

  • Cahill was banned in PL, so he hasn’t played for some time. May get his first start tomorrow. Luiz or Azpi to get some rest

  • Batshuayi not likely to oust Morata from starting 11



    Star Man: Morata (10.0) -  was gonna go for Hazard but because of his injury he will need some time
Bargain: Fabregas (7.5) – great price for his amazing vision


  • Peres RB, if not Jesus and Fazio or Moreno on CB

  •  Rest of the  team pretty much settled

Star Man:  Dzeko (10.5)

Bargain: not really one but maybe Nainggolan (8.5) with his goal potential and assists. Expensive tag though

Group D:
UCL Group D fixtures


  • A lot of injuries for the finalists for the match against Barca:
Khedira, Chiellini, Mandzukic and Marchisio

  • Cuadrado suspended tomorrow

  • Rugani started every single match in Serie A, may get the nod in front of Benatia, difficult to predict

  • Howedes or De Sciglio to start at RB since Lichtsteiner isn’t included in UCL squad

  • Bernardeschi to get his first start since Cuadrado and Mandzukic are out


    Star Man: Dybala (9.5)
Bargain: no real bargain here – best option is Dybala because of his great goal potential


  • S. Roberto injured

Dembele most likely starter ahead of  Deulofeu

    Star Man: Messi (12.0)

Bargain: Iniesta (7.0) – I mean…it’s Iniesta! Come on…
