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
