Diogo Jota (€7.5m) vs Atalanta
Diogo Jota is the perfect budget differential midfielder you should keep in your fantasy squad right now. The Portuguese scored a hat trick in Liverpool‘s 5-0 victory against Italian side Atalanta, earning a total of 18 points. After joining Liverpool from Wolves during the summer transfer window, Jota has been in a very good goal scoring form, scoring 7 goals in 11 matches from all competitions. Jota has started the last two UCL matches for the Reds while he made 8 points against Midtjylland scoring 1 goal and 18 points against Atalanta where he made his first hat trick for his new club. Jota’s prolific goal scoring record is an ability to be considered while opting him for your fantasy scored.
Nonetheless, with so many Liverpool players currently being unavailable Jurgen Klopp will definitely keep Diogo Jota in his starting XI and he can be a very good pick for your fantasy squad on the next match day. Jota’s domestic form has been nothing short of a sensation. The 23-year-old has made 3 Premier League starts in the last 6 game weeks, where he scored 3 goals and averaged 8.3 points per 90 minutes. Also on a per, 90 minutes basis over that period his average of 2.1 shots on target ranks top amongst teammates while his 2.7 shots in the box are joint best equal with Salah. With his ownership on the rise, Diogo Jota is not only a differential option but can also be an ideal captaincy choice to push you above your league-mates.
Kevin De Bruyne (€11.5m) and Ferran Torres (€7.6m)
Manchester City‘s midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne has made back to back 10 points haul in the Champions League in Manchester City’s last two matches. Despite missing the first UCL game against Porto, Kevin De Bruyne has earned 20 points in the next two matchdays where he has been directly involved in 4 goals for the club. The attacking midfielder is the creator behind the goals of Pep Guardiola’s team and he is the most trusted player of Guardiola himself. The last season’s Premier League player of the year is seen to be involved in a goal by scoring or assisting his teammates pretty often when he is on the field. Kevin De Bruyne is the midfielder who can earn you handsome points in matchday 4.
Guardiola will be looking to confirming City’s place in the Round of 16 with an away tie at Olympiacos. After a difficult domestic tie with Tottenham, there are slight chances of Pep doing his infamous roulette with his starting 11 but there are slim chances that he will opt out his inform summer acquisition. Having scored in all three of City’s UEFA Champions League games so far, Ferran Torres presents himself as an enticing option and his viability as a captaincy candidate was enhanced by a stunning hat-trick for Spain against Germany in the UEFA Nations League . With a low ownership and higher value differential, Ferran Torres has ticked in all the boxes to be highly considered in your UCL fantasy squads.
Note: If you plan on going with only one of them, you can take the risk with Ferran Torres; the wonder kid is just on too much of a hot form to ignore.
Timo Werner (€10.5m)
Chelsea‘s newly signed forward has finally managed to settle into Frank Lampard’s squad after initial struggle and is now scoring goals in all tournaments for the London club. Timo Werner also scored two goals for his new club Chelsea in their last Champions League match and also earned a penalty, adding a lucrative 12 points. In the previous Champions League game against Krasnodar Werner also earned a haul of 8 points where he scored one goal. So far Werner has made 22 points from three matches and ranks joint third as the most point-earning forwards in the tournament. Being a regular starter of Frank Lampard’s side who is in good form at the moment, Timo Werner is a must-have in your squad for matchday 4.
Talking about his domestic form, Werner now has four goals and two assists in the last 5 game weeks, where he has averaged around 8 points per game. The German forward ranks third in the most number of touches in the opposition’s box and having big chances. Chelsea has landed more shots on target in the Premier League than any other side and they will look the same to replicate their form against Rennais.
Cristiano Ronaldo (€12m) and Alvaro Morata (€9m)
Mr. Champions League also known as Cristiano Ronaldo marked his first appearance in this season’s competition with an assist against Ferencváros on Matchday 3 with his owners looking for more of his attacking returns as the Hungarian side visit Turin for the reverse fixture. Ronaldo’s pedigree on the European stage needs little introduction but the fact that he missed the first two games coupled with his modest return last time out means his ownership level is significantly lower than in seasons gone by. With three goals in his last two Serie A matches for the Old Lady, Ronaldo is about to face his first UCL home fixture this season and it will take some serious guts to leave him out from your fantasy squad.
Alvaro Morata has reincarnated himself under manager Andra Pirlo after joining Juventus this season from Atletico Madrid. The Spanish striker earned his second 20 points haul in UCL fantasy in Juventus’s last match against Ferencvaros. Morata had two goals against Ferencvaros in an away fixture resulting total of 8 points and had another 2 points for playing 67 minutes on the pitch. His first 10 points haul was against Dynamo Kyiv in the first group match of Juventus where he also scored a brace. Morata has been scoring day in day out ever since joining Juventus and has made 6 goals and 2 assists (total 8 goal contributions) in 8 matches for Juventus, which means he has contributed one goal per match for The Old Lady. Morata also scored 1 goal against Germany in the UEFA Nations League fixture for Spain during International break. If you did not include Morata in your fantasy squad during the first three matchdays, this might be the right time to add the Spanish forward to your squad.
Note: If you plan to bank on any one of the duo, you know the drill, don’t take the risk and just SIIUUUUU!
Ben Chilwell (€5.5m)
Since Ben Chilwell made his premier league debut for the Blues in the Premier League, they have gone on to keep seven clean sheets in nine matches in all competitions. The left-back has proved a worthy acquisition for the Blues after signing from Leicester this summer. Not only has Chilwell been solid at the back, but he also poses a significant attacking threat having already registered two goals and two assists for Frank Lampard’s men in this season’s Premier League.
No defender has amassed more than his 27 FPL Points over the last three-game weeks, an average of 9 points per game. The left-back has attempted 9 assists in that time, only behind Grealish and Bruno Fernandes, while no defender has taken more than his 2 shots on target. Chelsea visits Rennais on Matchday 4 and whilst this not only appears an attractive prospect in terms of keeping a fourth consecutive clean sheet, Chilwell’s offensive runs into the opposition penalty box increases the likelihood of the English international adding to the 18 fantasy points he has already racked up in this season’s competition.
Agustín Marchesín (€5.0m)
Porto kickstarted their Champions League campaign having won two of their opening three games, and keeping clean sheets in both of those wins. Thanks to Marchesin’s performances in those matches, the Argentine goalkeeper has amassed a total of 15 Fantasy points, the joint second total among all goalkeepers so far in this season’s competition. Porto travel to Marseille on Matchday 4, with the French team having yet to find the net in the group stage, and an in-form Marchesín will be confident of a third successive clean sheet. With premium goalkeepers such as Oblak finding a difficult start to the campaign, the 32-year-old can be your solution should you be looking fora keeper for your remainder of the group stage.
Since the second half of the group stage is about to start, you can consider using your free chips in matchday 4 especially if your squad requires more than two desperate transfers. If multiple players of the squad are injured and are about to miss the next match, consider choosing the limitless chip in such cases if you haven’t used it yet. You can also choose to use the Wildcard chip considering your current squad players’ condition, availability, and previous performances.
