Just two matchdays left in this years Fantasy Champions League campaign. There is not much room to make a big difference in the overall ranking or in the mini-leagues, as teams of majority of UCL Fantasy managers are looking very similar.
But still, we will do our best to help you with our UCL Fantasy MD 12 Tips.
So, let’s prepare our squads for the 2nd leg of Champions League Semifinals.
Tips for Matchday 12 of UCL Fantasy
Strategy for the semifinals 2nd leg
We will keep our tips short.
The most important thing before the final is: you have to make sure that no matter which teams will advance to the final, you still have 11 starters to field in the final.
Once the second leg of semifinals is over, you will get 5 free transfers again. So make sure, that no matter which teams will progress, you will have at least 6 players that will have advanced to the final (you will get other 5 players with your 5 free transfers).
It means, that sum of players in your team from all possible final combination is greater or equal to six. So, use your three free transfers wisely now.
And before the start of the semifinals 2nd leg make sure you have:
- At least 6 players from Chelsea and Man City in total (if two of them are goalkeepers, then 7)
- At least 6 players from Chelsea and PSG in total (if two of them are goalkeepers, then 7)
- At least 6 players from Real Madrid and Man City in total (if two of them are goalkeepers, then 7)
- At least 6 players from Real Madrid and PSG in total (if two of them are goalkeepers, then 7)
That way you will not have to take unnecessary hits to field 11 starters in the final.
You can also use our probabilities of progressing to the final to assess which teams will likely advance to the final.
Best captains for UCL Fantasy Semifinals
With Mbappe an injury doubt, we are going the pick our captain for Tuesday from Man City players.
There is one obvious option.
So if you want to play it safe, this one is for you.
In last 11 competitive matches, Kevin De Bruyne has been with 4 goals and 1 assist the most productive City player, as shown in the table below.
|Player||Goals||Assists||Goals + Assists|
We expect Kevin de Bruyne to be very heavily captained by UCL Fantasy managers. According to MD12 goalscoring odds, there is 35 % chance that he will score a goal in the semifinals 2nd leg.
And when we add his assist potential to the equation, he may end up the next round of Fantasy Champions League with a double-digit haul.
But he is not the only in-form Man City player. If you are looking for a differential captain, as we do, our advice is: consider captaining Ryiad Mahrez.
The Algerian is sitting only in 3% of UCL Fantasy teams and he is in a great form as well.
We are picking Mahrez as our number one captain for the UCL Fantasy Semifinals 2nd Leg.
Our backup captain for Wednesday is Karim Benzema.
We have already talk about his current form a lot in our tips for the first leg of semifinals. He rewarded his captainers in the first leg, and we expect him to do well in the second leg, too.
Scout picks for UCL Fantasy Semifinals 2nd Leg
Few last tips for the semifinals 2nd leg.
Do not forget include players that are great in balls recovered to your team.
With just 2 games, there will not be a lot of UCL Fantasy points distributed among the players. But players recovering balls are offering safe and secure root to points, as they do not have to score goal or keep a clean sheet.
According to clean sheets odds for matchday 12, we will see approximately just 1 clean sheet in the following round.
Clean sheet odds are again on similar level for all 4 teams, so you should have defenders from all 4 teams in your squad and try to catch that one clean sheet regardless which team will register it.
And focus on defenders great at balls recovered. We do not know which team will keep a clean sheet, but we know which defenders will get points for balls recovered.
Here is our scout squad for the UCL Fantasy semifinals 2nd leg.
The squad value is 106m, as we assume your team value have gone up during the season.
