Overview

 

Both games should be interesting on Tuesday evening – Real Madrid should breeze past Roma at home having a two goal lead in the bag already but there may be some team selections which will affect our pick at the last minute; there should be some goals between Wolfsburg and Gent with the score at 3 – 2 from the first leg but the home side should come out on top in the end.

Defence

  • In goal we’ve picked Wolfsburg’s Koen Casteels who should grab a clean sheet if he is selected.
  • Robin Knoche is our second player from the German side but wathc out for the team selection as he is not always picked.
  • Madrid’s Danilo and Sergio Ramos are solid picks from the Spanish side who should keep a clean sheet against Roma.

Midfield

  • Wolfsburg’s Andre Schurrle is a bargain choice here but should see plenty of the ball against Gent.
  • Roma’s Mohamed Salah is a capable goalscorer and if anyone can score points against Madrid, he has a chance.
  • Real Madrid’s Isco earns plenty of points for assists from midfield and will have plenty of possession.
  • Cardoso Neto is our bargain option here and any points from the Gent player will be a bonus.

Forwards

  • We’ve saved enough money elsewhere to be able to pick Ronaldo up front and he virtually guarantees points.
  • Max Kruse is Wolfsburg’s top scorer and a solid fantasy pick.
  • Simon Diedhiou is another bargain pick from Gent but we have moderate hopes for a few points.

*In the event that certain players are not selected, last-minute changes may be required.
