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: Benzema (SHF (H))

We always captain a player that has the best fixture. And according to bookies odds, Real Madrid vs. Sheriff Tiraspol is the best fixture on Tuesday. 

And who else to pick from Los Blancos than their striker Karim Benzema? He has outstanding form with 8 goals and 7 assists in just 6 games. He is a no-brainer Tuesday captain for us.

Other Tuesday captain contenders: Haaland, Salah

Wednesday Captain: Lewandowski (DK (H))

On Wednesday, Bayern Munich has the best fixture according to bookies odds. There could be a lot of goals in their match against Dynamo Kyjev. Therefore, Robert Lewandowski is our backup captain for Wednesday.

Other captain contenders for Wednesday: Ronaldo.

Limitless wildcard: should you use it in the Matchday two?

We have some nice fixtures in Matchday 2 of Fantasy Champions League. For example, Real Madrid vs. Sheriff Tiraspol, Dortmund vs. Sporting, Porto vs. Liverpool, Bayern vs. Dynamo Kyjev…

A lot of premium UCL fantasy players from those teams could do very well in this matchday. However, there is no clear answer to the question, whether you should play your limitless wildcard on matchday 2.

Of course, it depends on your current team and how it is set up for MD2, how it is set up for MD4, or your overall strategy, and also on your plan to use classic wildcard.

So, consider ups and downs, see the bigger picture. And if you lean towards using your limitless wildcard in the MD2, then there are definitely great fixtures to exploit the potential of this chip.

We revealed our Limitless Wildcard Squad for Matchday 2 of UCL Fantasy in a new article. So if you are interested in using this chip in this Matchday, you can get inspired by our Limitless Wildcard Team. 

Which players have done well in recovering balls & MOTM?

One matchday is a very small sample size. However, few players have caught our eye thanks to the number of balls they recovered in the first round of the Champions League.

If you would like to see which players have done well in balls recovered during the previous two seasons, make sure to check our article about Balls Recovering Heroes.

Similarly, we checked which players got the MOTM awards in the MD1 (and 3 extra fantasy points). If you would like to know, which players got the most MOTM awards last season, check our article about this: The most MOTM awards.
