This article is part of the series: Fantasy Champions League Matchday 10: Tips, Best Picks & Captain

We will explore goalkeepers at each price option: budget enablers, midpriced picks and premium options.

Budget Goalkeepers for Quarterfinals 2nd Leg – Matchday 10 (2023/24)

Lunin (4.8m, Real Madrid) – 4/10

  • recently have been regularly starting for Real Madrid
  • Real Madrid is unhappy about Kepa’s performances, Lunin took over his spot
  • He is starting now for Real and it seems he could retain number one spot until Courtois is back
  • Courtois was close to a return, but injured his knee
  • But do not have unrealistic expectations about clean sheet, however, could get points for saves

Mid Priced Goalkeepers for Quarterfinals – MD10

David Raya (5.0m, Arsenal) – 6/10

  • Arsenal is solid defensively in the Premier League as well – top for clean sheets in PL and UCL as well this season
  • but there could be goals at both ends again
  • Unfortunately, he is not getting many save points in the Champions League

Kobel (5.0m, Dortmund) – 7/10

  • a budget enabler
  • there will not be many clean sheets in MD10 (there was none in MD9), so perhaps you should go for cheaper goalkeeper and use funds on attacking players
  • Dortmund is second for clean sheet odds in MD10

Premium Goalkeepers for Matchday 10

Oblak (6.0m, Atletico Madrid) – 4/10

  • bit overpriced
  • good at saves
  • he was mainly a good option for us on MD9, now in MD10 we would pick Kobel over him

Neuer (5.9m, Bayern Munich) – 6/10

  • can get points for saves as well (that is his advantage over Ederson)
  • but he is too pricy, there could be goals at both ends against Arsenaô

Ederson (6.0m, Manchester City) – 8/10

  • Ederson is fit again
  • each season, we have Manchester City defenders or goalkeepers on our teams
  • Ederson is a safe goalkeeper pick, although City’s defense is not as reliable lately as we were used to
  • with so many question marks among their defenders (we are not sure who will start), Ederson is likely the only nailed player in City’s defense
  • Manchester City is not allowing many saves against, so you must rely on points from clean sheets and not from save
  • Good fixture, Citizens are top for clean sheet odds in MD10
  • A higher price tag is minus given the lack of save points

Our best goalkeeper picks

Our recommended goalkeeper combo for the Matchday 10:

  • In MD10, You want goalkeepers who: play on different day and are from other side of bracket (so they do not face each other in semifinals, and you could use subs)
  • As it stands our current combo is: Ederson + Kobel. Both play on different days and have good fixtures with high clean-sheet potential in MD10.

Now, let’s look at things you should consider when picking the best goalkeepers to your UCL Fantasy team.

Tips for picking the best goalkeepers for your UCL Fantasy team

With goalkeepers, you always want a keeper that has a very high chance of a clean sheet.

But what is crucial, it is to have two playing goalkeepers – one that plays on Tuesday and one that plays on Wednesday.

That way, if your Tuesday’s goalkeeper did not score enough points (we use 4 points as our threshold) you can replace him with a goalkeeper that is yet to play on Wednesday.

This will help you maximize the UCL Fantasy points gained from your goalkeepers. Also, when considering a goalkeeper for your UCL Fantasy team, you always have to take a look at fixtures and asses whether a certain keeper has the potential for a clean sheet. Does he have a tough or easy fixture?

You can use our Champions League Clean Sheets Odds to find teams, who are most likely to keep a clean sheet in the next round of Champions League.

And do not forget to consider goalkeepers who are good at saves or penalty saves. You can find which goalkeepers made the most saves in the previous season in our article: Goalkepeers with the most saves in UCL Fantasy.

Now let’s look at goalkeepers at each price option: budget enablers, midpriced picks and premium options.
