With the climax of the UEFA Champions League approaching for the Grand Finale, so does the UCL Fantasy! With the hassle of team selections and captain choices already proving a nuisance to all the fantasy managers, here we are to ease your worries with our list of UCL Fantasy Injuries and Suspensions list. Besides the UCL fantasy Injuries and Suspensions, we have tried to list the possible substitutions and also list the players who are just one booking away from missing a quarter-final appearance.
Tomas Tuchel‘s men have been unbeaten and prolific in the group stage, losing 2-1 to Dortmund in the first leg of their round of 16 ties only to bounce back with a stylish 2-0 victory in the French capital. Scoring goals is not exactly an issue for the French giants with their semi-final victory over RB Leipzig being more comfortable than Bayern’s over Lyon. Sunday represents a tantalizing opportunity to make themselves the team to beat, though, and if they are finally able to lift their most coveted prize aloft then there could be no doubting that they are worthy champions by beating the best.
PSG will be particularly hopeful of having first-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas back available. The Costa Rican was forced off with a thigh injury against Atalanta and subsequently missed the semi-final, leaving him as a major doubt for this match with Sergio Rico again set to deputize. Layvin Kurzawa and Idrissa Gueye are also fitness doubts for Tuchel’s side, but Marco Verratti did get some minutes towards the end of the semi-final and may earn a place back in the starting XI for the final as a result.
- Keylor Navas
- Layvin Kurzawa
- Idrissa Gueye
Bayern coming back after humiliating Barcelona 8-2 and defeating Lyon 3-0 doesn’t look to take any halt before lifting their sixth European Cup. The German outfit has been simply scintillating en route to the final, plundering an incredible 42 goals during a perfect 10 wins from 10 games in the competition this season.
Hansi Flick will be hoping to be able to name an unchanged side from the semi-final but could be without Jerome Boateng, who picked up a knock in that match which forced him off at the half time. Flick has options in reserve – namely Niklas Sule, Lucas Hernandez, and Javi Martinez – but he will give Boateng every opportunity to prove his fitness ahead of the final. Meanwhile, Flick has confirmed that full-back Benjamin Pavard will be available for selection having now recovered from injury. Pavard has not started a Champions League game since the restart but the Frenchman would be a more defensive option at right-back if Flick opts for caution.
- Jerome Boateng
