Who to captain in UCL Fantasy MD2?

Just as last week, we prepare two captain picks, one for Tuesday games and one for Wednesday games. Here they are.

Tuesday captain: Mané (BAR (H))

If you are going Rolls Royce attack for Matchday 2 (Mbappe, Neymar, Haaland) or (Mbappe, Neymar, Messi), you have to captain some of your midfielders (or defenders) on Tuesday. Mané is our pick as we have greater confidence in Bayern’s mids than Liverpoool’s. 

Other Tuesday captain contenders: Sané, Salah, Kane

Wednesday Captain: Mbappe (MHA (A))

It is all about Macabi Haifa vs PSG game. That is fixture to target, that is the fixture where you should have your captain on Wednesday. For us, it is Mbappé.

Other captain contenders for Wednesday: Neymar, Messi, Haaland.
