The last round of the group stages is here already, a lot of teams have qualified, four are yet to qualify and a decent few have a chance of playing in the Europa League.
This means that as UCL fantasy managers, it is important to think carefully about the transfers we’re going to make. If you aren’t playing your wildcard or limitless chip, then this article is for you.
In this article, we’re going to be looking at some of the best players you can transfer into your UCL fantasy team, using your free transfer.
Best UCL forward picks: what striker should you buy into your UCL MD6 team
When it comes to the best forwards to buy into your UCL fantasy team in MD6, there are three really good forward picks and they are:
- Harry Kane
- Rafael Leao
- Julian Alvarez
Harry Kane is one player that we’d recommend UCL fantasy managers keep an eye on this matchday. We all know that a lot of the really top teams have booked themselves a spot in the UCL round of 16, and so they’d be resting their key players this matchday.
That’s why Harry Kane is on this list, it’s simply because the match Spurs have this matchday is a must win game and so Harry Kane is guaranteed minutes.
The likes of Lewandowski, Mbappe and Benzema would all be benched, so in other to not be left stranded, it’d be a good move to get in a player that’d feature.
We also have the likes of Leao and Alvarez as good forward picks this matchday as well. And once more, we’re targeting these players because of we expect them to start.
Leao is also in a very similar position to that of Kane, where his team can’t afford to lose their match. So we expect Milan to put out a really strong side and their strong side we know would feature Leao.
So if you’re on a free transfer, and are looking for a couple of forwards to get into your UCL fantasy team, then you Kane, Leao and Alvarez are good players to consider.
Best UCL midfield picks: what midfielders should you buy into your UCL MD6 team
In terms of midfielders, there are a lot of pretty decent picks out there and once again, we’d be trying to avoid players who play for teams that have already qualified.
It simply means that we have a small pool of players to pick from, but we still do have a couple of solid picks and here are some of them:
- Marcus Edwards
- Heung-Min Son
- Khvicha Kvaratskhelia
These are the five players that we’d recommend for those looking to get in a midfielder this matchday. Nkunku is top of our list and that’s because of how good he is and just how explosive he can be.
There are other good options, you could select players from Man City, the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish or Phil Foden would be great picks as well.
You could also pick Ansu Fati from Barcelona he could get a start this matchday against Plzen.
what defenders should you buy into your UCL MD6 team
For defenders, we’d still be using the same logic, we’d be going all in on players that have something to play for and we’d chuck in a couple of squad players as well.
When selecting defenders, it is important to select those who can give clean sheet points and also get you some form of attacking return.
Those are the sort of defenders that we want to target and here’s our list of really good defender picks for matchday 6:
- Ivan Perisic
- Theo Hernandez
- Nathan Ake
- Stefan Ortega
- Alex Grimaldo
We’ve got Milan, Atletico Madrid, Spurs, Benfica and Man City defenders in our list of top defenders to target this matchday. These defenders are all different, so we think it’s important to select them based on what you want.
If you want defenders that have a high potential of getting attacking returns, then Perisic, Hernandez and Grimaldo are all really nice picks.
However, if you’re looking for safe picks that would guarantee you a clean sheet, then Ake, Ortega and Reinildo are the ones you should go for.
Ortega is a goal keeper and we think he’d make a good goalie for those looking to get one this matchday. He’s cheap, he’d play, going for him also means you can spend more in other areas of the pitch, so he’s a really solid pick.
