Watch Mahrez seal last place for City

Riyad Mahrez (9.1 million euros)

Mahrez really came to life in the knockout stage after recording offensive returns in his last five games of the competition – against Mönchengladbach, Dortmund and Paris – and he will be one of the first names on the roster for the managers of #UCLfantasy as the final approaches. The Algerian has already passed his previous season as a top scorer with a Manchester City shirt and, given his form, it would be a huge surprise if he wasn’t part of Josep Guardiola’s starting lineup for the showdown with Chelsea. As the #UCLfantasy points scorer on both Matchday 11 and 12 and also likely to be on penalties, Mahrez appears to be a key option for your team and is firmly in the captain’s account.

Kevin De Bruyne (€ 11.4m)

Of course, the captain’s qualifications of fellow Manchester City midfielder De Bruyne are no less convincing, especially considering his impressive record of points per appearance in the UEFA Champions League this season. In his seven appearances in the competition, the Belgian is averaging over seven points per game and he will undoubtedly be a mainstay of Manchester City’s attacks on Matchday 13. Two of his three goals in this year’s competition have come from away, and with an extra point earned from that metric, his long-range ability only increases his fantasy appeal. De Bruyne is in one-fifth of all #UCLfantasy teams and many of those managers will likely give him the armband.

Mount Mason (€ 6.9 million)

While Jorginho was the #UCLfantasy points scorer in Chelsea’s race to the final, there is arguably a bigger advantage in selecting the more attentive Mount if you are looking for a captain in Thomas Tuchel’s midfield. The Englishman has proven himself to be a man for the big occasion after scoring in both the quarter-final against Porto and the semi-final against Real Madrid, and looks certain to feature from the start of the final despite some competition. fierce in Chelsea. ranks. With Mount undoubtedly keen to outdo his compatriot England Phil Foden ahead of UEFA EURO 2020, the UEFA Champions League final is the perfect stop for him and #UCLfantasy managers could benefit from it.

Antonio Rüdiger (4.9 million euros)

Chelsea’s previously steadfast defense have not kept a clean sheet in five games since arriving in the final, but the London club have shown on several occasions under Thomas Tuchel that they are able to withstand pressure at the back, in particular by excluding City in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. -final. If you fancy backing them up to keep a ninth clean sheet in the competition, then it’s a tight thing when it comes to which Chelsea defender you should captain. The advantage here goes to Rüdiger, who has racked up more #UCLfantasy (37) points in the knockout stage than any other Chelsea player, and is indeed only second to Mahrez in that department when it comes to the remaining players. in the competition.
