5 Best Picks for UCL Fantasy Gameweek 2
The Matchweek 1 fixtures have already been played and teams are now set and the tournament has already produced some magical and dramatic moments. Alley Sport brings the 5 Best Picks for UCL Fantasy Gameweek 2.
The UEFA Champions League has already had some memorable clashes already, with goals flying left, right, and center across all games in the Group Stage phase. The Group Stage enters its Matchday 2 phase with mouth-watering fixtures like PSG taking on Manchester City in the so-called “Group of Death”, Juventus hosting European champions Chelsea in Turin, AC Milan hosting Atletico Madrid at the San Siro. Another notable fixture would be the last year’s UEFA Europa League Champions Villarreal CF taking on Manchester United at Old Trafford.
1) ST- Erling Haaland (Borrusia Dortmund vs Sporting CP)
Borussia Dortmund’s Norwegian striker Erling Haaland (€11m) has set the UCL Fantasy and Matches on fire ever since his debut in the Black and Yellow kit. The 2020/2021 UEFA Forward of The Year was once again on the scoresheet against Besiktas in their Gameweek 1 meeting. There hasn’t been much change since the start of this season as Haaland’s stock continues to rise among UCL Fantasy Managers.
2) ST- Karim Benzema (Real Madrid vs Sheriff)
Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema (€10m) ever since Ronaldo’s departure from Real Madrid seems to have been unleashed upon Europe’s biggest stage. He has been a scoring machine in front of goal, in the process contributing 8 goals and 7 assists in only 6 appearances in all competitions. The Fantasy managers have all noticed his contributions to Real’s success and Benzema is one of the no-brainer Captain selections for Gameweek 2.
3) ST- Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich vs Dynamo Kyiv)
There are not many reasons why some attacker’s teammates nickname him as ‘Lewangoalski’. Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski (€11.5m) secured a brace in his side’s demolition scoreline of 3-0 against FC Barcelona. Goals are what Lewandowski is feared for among Europe’s elite and Fantasy managers who transfer him in will only be satiated with big points.
4) Mohammed Salah (FC Porto vs Liverpool FC)
Liverpool winger Mohammed Salah (€10.5m) had a mixed night during Matchweek 1 as he missed a penalty but also opened his account in a thrilling 3-2 victory over AC Milan. Salah really is one of the safest bets for UCL Fantasy managers out there, because his work rate lies not just in goals but also in setting up his teammates. At his current valuation, many managers feel he is undervalued but nonetheless will be a sleeper player to watch out in Matchweek 2.
5) Romelu Lukaku (Juventus vs Chelsea)
Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku (€10.5m) has indeed come back from Inter a different man with improvements in his all-around attacking play. He really was the difference on the night for a Chelsea team who won last year’s UCL trophy arguably without an out and out No.9. His aerial prowess coupled with his acceleration was too much for Zenit to cope with during Matchweek 1. Many UCL Fantasy managers may be hesitant to pick him up for his valuation but has the potential to bring in a bucketload of points.
