World No. 471 The FPL Manual shares his thoughts on how to approach matchday 6 of UCL Fantasy.
The final Champions League game of the year is here. However, recently a lot of UCL Fantasy managers have been burdened with reports around rotation and injuries. In this article, I attempt to provide solutions to a few questions asked which could provide some insights on what steps to take ahead of Matchday 6.
The first question is from Twitter (X) user @SadnanAhmed7 asking this below.
Is it wise to target teams which have nothing to play for like Antewrp vs Barca,Berlin vs Madrid, Leipzig vs Young Boys etc. or teams that have some/everything to play for like Utd vs Bayern, Porto vs Shakhter?— Sadnan Ahmed 🇧🇩 (@SadnanAhmed7) December 11, 2023
Answer: It would be more practical to target teams who have something to play for. One major reason being; More guaranteed xMins. ie Di Lorenzo could play the full 90 minutes over Dimarco who has qualified with Inter and maybe add a few pen-takers as well: Zielinski, Icardi, Evanilson.
The second question is from Ali Jafaar and he asked:
What’s Stengs probability to start in your opinion?— Ali Jaafar 🇱🇧 (@FPL_JAAFAR) December 11, 2023
Impressive ucl content👍
Answer: Thanks mate for the compliment. I would love to hear from Arne Slot later. However, I would assess he has close to a 70% chance of playing and that is based on the fact Feyenoord don’t have a lot of star players that can replace Stengs quality when he is unavailable Just my opinion though.
The final question is from Simon on Twitter and he wants to know what is the best Limitless Chip draft
Do you have a LWC6 draft? 😊— Simon 🇳🇴 (@xisimon_) December 10, 2023
Answer: If I still had my Limitless chip, this could be my final team. The aim here is to target teams who are yet to qualify. ie. Napoli, Galatasaray, Group F teams etc. Any of Icardi or Osimhen are stand-out differentials Kane can be Mbappe, Hakimi can be Molina.

- AVOID HITS – Try to take as few hits as possible as this would hurt your rank more. A -4 hit is quite understandable but make sure you are getting the right players in. A few games to target are:
Napoli vs Braga, Copenhagen vs Galatasaray and RB Leipzig vs Young Boys
That brings me to the end of this article. I hope you found it quite helpful, feel free to share this with other UCL Fantasy managers. Cheers.
