Champions League Daily Fantasy
It's going to be a tough weekend for fantasy football lovers with no Premier League action 🙁
Luckily however, we know just how to fill the gap, with some Champions League daily fantasy! Draft Kings offer competitions for just one night of Champions League action. Of course this makes it very challenging as only 4 teams are in action and there will be a lot of crossover, making it very difficult to get the top team!
Tonight Draft Kings have a lot of competitions from as little as $1, up to many of thousands. Also if you join now, you'll get free entry to one competition.
So without further ad0, these are our thoughts and below you can find our team recommendations, so let's go!
Bayern Munich vs Arsenal
Poor old Arsenal have been knocked out at this stage 6 times in a row! And it goes without saying that things aren't getting any easier as they take on fantastic Bayern Munich team once again. We're expecting to see Hector Bellerin start but you're able to make changes to your Draft Kings team right up until kickoff, so be sure to keep a close eye on the team sheet. For Bayern, Xabi Alonso looks likely to return from injury.
Real Madrid vs Napoli
The key news from this fixture is that Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to go and Gareth Bale is going to be on the bench. This should be an incredible game as two very in-form sides take each other on. While Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last 11 Champions League games, Napoli are amazingly unbeaten through 18 games in all competitions. Could we be looking for a draw tonight?
Our Draft Kings team:
With Draft Kings you get a $50,000 budget and here's the team we'll be starting with:
GK Navas (RM) $5,600 - Madrid simply team most likely to keep clean sheet.
D Ramos (RM) $4,300 - Great value for goal scoring upside.
D Varane (RM) $3,300 - A squad-filler there for his clean sheet value.
M Sanchez (ARS) $7,800 - MF spot for a goal machine? Yes please.
M Modric (RM) $5,800 - Good value for likely assist. Check he starts pre-kickoff.
F Ronaldo (RM) $10,900 - You can't afford not to have him. Odds-on to score.
F Mertens (NAP) $7,100 - Ridiculous value for a proven goal scorer.
UTIL Casemiro (RM) $4,700 - You'd fancy him to knick a goal or assist.
Total squad cost: $49,600
Remember, if you want to enter our team, or one of your own, you can do so for as little as $1 here.
