The Champions League is back this evening and we have two second leg games to enjoy – both should result in wins for the favourites but both also offer some points-scoring opportunities. This is our entry into DraftKings UCL Freeroll.

  • Wolfsburg vs KAA Gent
  • Real Madrid vs Roma
  • Zenit St Petersburg vs Benfica
  • Chelsea vs Paris St Germain


Goalkeeper Koen Casteels Wolfsburg £5.3m
Defender Sergio Ramos Real Madrid £8.4m
Defender Danilo Real Madrid £10.1m
Defender Robin Knoche Wolfsburg £8.3m
Midfielder Andre Schurrle Wolfsburg £6.1m
Midfielder Mohamed Salah Roma £10.5m
Midfielder Isco Real Madrid £8.8m
Midfielder Cardoso Neto KAA Gent £5.9m
Forward Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid £20.5m
Forward Max Cruse Wolfsburg £9.2m
Forward Simon Diedhou KAA Gent £4.6m


All our players are selected from Tuesday evening’s matches because we like the lineup we’d picked for Mondogoal’s Tuesday-only competition. We expect a win and plenty of possession from Real Madrid and an eventual victory (and some more goals) in the Wolfsburg/Gent fixture.


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.
