Before the 2nd of Champions League Quarterfinals, we have three transfers available (you cannot carry forward any of them), and we think you should use them to:
1. Get rid of suspended and injured players
2. Transfer out players, whose teams have little chance of progressing to the semifinals – based on the semifinals probabilities, you should consider getting rid of your Benfica, Chelsea, and Villareal players.
3. Bringing in the best captaincy options (if you do not own them)
4. Bring in defenders who have high chance of clean sheet acording to our Champions League Clean Sheets odds table.
The sub rule and captaincy treshold
We have sub threshold at 4 points. Meaning that if your players scores 4 points or more, you will not sub him off after the first day.
If he scores 3 points or less, you replace him on Wednesday with a player who is yet to play and is confirmed in a starting lineup.
With balls recovered and a clean sheet point(s) is quite common for players to score 3 points, so we always subbing of players with 3 or less points scored on Tuesday.
Our captaincy threshold is at 5 points.
Meaning if your captain scores 5 or more points, you will not change your captain.
There are just 4 matches and few captaincy options, so it is much harder to get captaincy return in Quarterfinals, Semininals or finals.
Best captain for the quarterfinals 2nd Leg
It is is pretty clear who is the best captain for UCL Fantasy quarterfinals 2nd leg. It is Robert Lewandowski. Do not try to be too clever by not captaining him. He is going to be heavily captained by almost every active player in the game.
Lewandowski has the highest chance of scoring a goal in MD10 according to our Champions League goalscoring odds. He has also the easiest fixture according to bookies odds. It is a no brainer.
If you dare to be different, you can try to captain Benzema against Chelsea. This strategy would have worked in the 1st leg of Quarterfinals. But two times in a row? We think that’s pretty unlikely.
Your backup captain for Wednesay should be Liverpool or Manchester City player. Mohamed Salah is our pick, but if you do not trust his form, you can also captain Trent Alexander Arnold.
Regarding Manchester City players, our picks would be Kevin De Bruyne and Cancelo. Belgian is in great form, while Portuguese has high chance of clean sheet and potential of an attacking return.
But we are backing Mo Salah as our Wednesday captain if Lewandowski fails to deliver.
Do not overcomplicate things. Just captain the best player on any given day.
