In this article, we will look at the best forwards to pick for your Fantasy Champions League team in Matchday 3

  • Jutgla (5.5m, Brugge) – far better pick than Brobbey who we recommended in Mtachday 1. Great form in Belgian league. But tricky fixtures in MD3 and MD4.
  • Julian Alvarez (6,0m, Manchester City) – if there are rumors that he could get one game against Kodaň in MD3 or MD4, he could be great differential
  • Milik (7,0m, Juventus) – one to consider in MD3, but we like Vlahovič more, if you would like to have Juventus attacking coverage in MD3 and MD4
  • Oršič (7,5m, Dinamo Zagreb) – we do not have many other options among budget forwards for Matchday 3. Oršič is another one to consider as he shown, he can score a goal against any team. Salzburg is a good fixture for Dinamo Zagreb.

Mid priced picks

  • Vlahovič (9,0m, Juventus) – Juventus top scorer in Seria A, good fixture in MD3 and MD4
  • Nunez (8,5m, Liverpool) – if he is set to start against Rangers, than he would be amazing pick.

Premium picks

  • Haaland (11m, Manchester City) – he is just scoring every game. Whether you are on Limitless wildcard or not, get him in.
  • Mbappe (11,0m, PSG) – the only forward with two MOTM awards. Good fixtures in MD3 and MD4. 
  • Kane (10,5m, Tottenham) – one for limitless wildcards. But avoid if you are on regular wildcard as there other cheaper picks that would allow you to move funds to premium midfielders

Picking forwards to your Fantasy Champions League team

When picking strikers into your UCL Fantasy team, you should consider:

  • Historically, forwards are the best captains in Fantasy Champions League
  • Make sure you have two great captaincy options among forwards – one for Tuesday and one for Wednesday (unless you plan to captain premium midfielder in one day)
  • Pick forwards who are in form and have easy fixture – this will allow you to maximize points potential from your captain
  • Consider probabilities when picking forwards. Let bookies any time goalscorer odds to help you with that. You can find them here: Champions League Goalscoring Odds.
  • Think about structure. For example, you could go:
    • 11m – captain for Tuesday
    • 11m – backup captain for Wednesday
    • 6m – in-form differential with an easy fixture
