In this article, we will look at the best forwards to pick for your Fantasy Champions League team in MD 13 – Final of the new 2023/24 UCL season.

This article is part of the series: UCL Fantasy Matchday 13: Tips, Best Picks & Captain

We looked at each price option: budget enablers, mid-priced and premium options.

Budget forwards (4.5m – 7.5m)

Joselu (7.3m, Real Madrid) – 3/10

  • selected by 1%
  • yes, he will not start, but if you think that game could go to the extra time, he should get minutes
  • so he is only option, a differential pick, if you expect very tight game that would go to the extra time, so in that case, he could get 15 + 30 minutes of game time against tired Dortmund defence
  • 9G + 2A this season in La Liga

Fullkrug (7.5m, Dortmund) – 4/10

  • His superb form trailed off, but still 12G + 8A in Bundesliga this season
  • main goalscorer for Dortmund

Mid-priced forwards (8m – 9.5m)

Rodrygo (9.2m, Real Madrid) – 8.5/10

  • you should likely aim to get double up of Vinicius + Rodrygo for the final
  • Brazilian has 10G + 5A in La Liga this seaon

Premium forwards (10m – 11.5m)

Vinicius (11.1m, Real Madrid) – 10/10

  • the main man for Real Madrid
  • strong captaincy candidate for the final – he is likely going to be the most captained player in the final
  • 13G + 5A in La Liga this season (however, he was injured at the start of the season)

Picking the best 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
