If I could summarize matchday 1 then it would be Goals! Goals! Goals! We saw some high scoring games and some evenly matched ones which were determined by a goal or two. Now UCL Fantasy is back for Matchday 2 and it promises some breathtaking action again as we start the week with Lokomotiv Moscow against defending champions Bayern Munich. Here are our rankings:


Forwards

1Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich@Lokomotiv Moscow12MHe is one of the most inform players in the world right now and scored his second hattrick of the season against Frankfurt last week.
2Neymar PSG@Istanbul Başakşehir11.5M
3Erling Braut HålandBVBVs Zenit11MHåland has scored in his last five games across all competitions for Dortmund and I fancy him to continue the streak against Zenit.
4Kylian MbappePSG@Istanbul Başakşehir11M
5Romelu LukakuInter Milan@Shakhtar Donetsk11MLukaku was a dominant force in the Europa league finishing as the MVP and scored 2 goals and assisted 1 when these two teams met in the Europa League last season.
6Ciro ImmobileLazio@Club Brugge10.5M
7Alvaro MorataJuventusVs FC Barcelona9MHe has really stepped up in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo scoring/assisting in each of his last 3.
8Lionel MessiBarcelona@Juventus12M
9Roberto FirminoLiverpoolVs Midtjylland9MFirmino might not be the biggest goal scorer there is but Midtjylland is one of the weaker teams in the competition and should present lots of opportunities for the only Liverpool forward in the game.

Midfielders

1Mohamed SalahLiverpoolVs Midtjylland12MAs good as Salah is, he is an even more dominant force at home. Playing Midtjylland should be a dream fixture for any forward.
2Leroy SaneBayern Munich@Lokomotiv Moscow9.5MSane looked like the most dangerous player for Bayern before an injury brought him to a hault. Expect Bayern to be even more dominant now.
3Angel Di MariaPSG@Istanbul Başakşehir9M
4Kevin De BruyneManchester City@Marseille11.5M
5Diogo JotaLiverpoolVs Midtjylland7.5MHe has shown bright glimpses everytime he got an opportunity and this week he might get his first start in UCL.

9Christian PulisicChelsea@Krasnodar9M

Defenders

1Andrew RobertsonLiverpoolVs Midtjylland6.5MThe most targetable fixture of the week and his form puts him ahead of his teammate TAA.
2Joshua KimmichBayern Munich@Lokomotiv Moscow6.5MHe might be playing OOP as a defensive midfielder but is still involved in goals for the team.
3Joe GomezLiverpoolVs Midtjylland5.5MGomez was one of the surprises for matchday 1 getting 5 points for 16 ball recoveries.
4Alessandro FlorenziPSG@Istanbul Başakşehir5M
5Joao CanceloManchester City@Marseille5.5M
6Trent Alexander ArnoldLiverpoolVs Midtjylland6.5M
7Achraf HakimiInter Milan@Shakhtar Donetsk6MHakimi returns to the team after a supposed false alarm of him testing positive. He will be a big threat for Shakhtar on the wings.
8Thomas MeunierBorussia DortmundVs Zenit5MHe matched Hummels for ball recoveries and is also more involved in the offense. Meunier is middle ground between Hummels and Guerreiro.
9Reece JamesChelsea@Krasnodar5M

1Alisson BeckerLiverpoolVs Midtjylland6MAlisson is set to replace Adrian making the defense more reliable and I don't have to explain how.
2Manuel NeuerBayern Munich@Lokomotiv Moscow6MBayern are expected to dominate this game so there won't be much saves if any but there is a good chance for a cleansheet.
3Keylor NavasPSG@Istanbul Başakşehir5.5M
4EdersonManchester City@Marseille6M
5Edouard MendyChelsea@Krasnodar5M
