Every day we bring you what we think are some sensible selection options based on today’s upcoming matches; we’re not going to promise that these are guaranteed winners because if we could do that we’d all be millionaires by now. These players are all solid picks based on recent stats and their next opponents so check them out.
There are eight Champions League matches to pick from this evening and there are some fairly obvious bankers among a mixed bunch:
- Seville vs Juventus
- Galatasary vs Astana
- PSV Eindhoven vs CSKA Moscow
- Paris St. Germain vs Shakhtar Donetsk
- Wolfsburg vs Manchester United
- Benfica vs Atletico Madrid
- Manchester City vs Borussia Monchengladbach
- Real Madrid vs Malmo FF
|Goalkeeper||Keylor Navas||Real Madrid||£12.0m|
|Midfielder||Saul Miguez||Atletico Madrid||£5.6m|
|Forward||Anthony Martial||Manchester United||£5.4m|
Obviously there are a couple of home bankers tonight in the shape of PSG and Real Madrid who host Shakhtar Donetsk and Malmo respectively. These games are essentially dead rubbers as both teams have already qualified for the next stage but they should both keep clean sheets, hence the inclusion of Navas, Luis and Maxwell. Up front we’ve splashed out on Ronaldo with Thiago Motta supporting from midfield.
That’s something of an expensive, star-studded line-up so there are some cheaper options elsewhere but these too should be points-scorers. Galatasaray’s game against Astana is another dead rubber which hopefully should result in a clean sheet for the home side and points for Semi Kavah.
Saul Miguez (Atletico Madrid), Fernandinho (Manchester City) and Davy Propper (PSV) are the cheaper midfield options and the latter two are still playing for something; the surprisingly cheap Anthony Martial should start in their vital tie against Monchengladbach tonight and the line-up is completed by Benfica’s Rail Jiminez – Benfica have already qualified but will want to top the group with a win against Atletico Madrid.
