1Cristiano RonaldoJuventus@Ferencvárosi12MWhat could be better for the top goal scorer in UCL history than to announce his return against a team that has conceded the most goals (7) over 2 games?
2Lionel MessiBarcelonaVs Dynamo Kyiv12.1MKyiv will be missing 9 players including some key players in defense due to the virus. This game could be heavily one-sided with Messi making quick work of them.
3Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich@RB Salzburg12MSalzburg's attacking mindset is bound to create some chances for Lewandowski. They have conceded 2 goals in each of their games already.
4Lassina TraoreAjax@Midtjylland5MMissing so many players for the game is a big concern but this is still one of the easiest games on paper.
5Duvan ZappataAtalantaVs Liverpool9.6M
6Erling Braut HålandBVB@Club Brugge11M
7Karim BenzemaReal MadridVs Inter Milan10.5MBenzema is in incredible form right now scoring 3 and assisting 2 in his last 2 games. Still owned by just 4%.
8Timo WernerChelseaVs Rennes10.5M
9Luis SuarezAtletico Madrid@Lokomotiv Moscow10M
10Luuk De JongSevillaVs Krasnodar 8M

Midfielders

1Raheem SterlingManchester CityVs Olympiacos 10.5MSterling has been the biggest beneficiary of the absence of Aguero and Jesus as they look to make it 3 in 3 wins.
2Ansu FatiBarcelonaVs Dynamo Kyiv8.2MAge is just a number for this goal-scoring machine who already has 5 goals this season. That and he is one of the only midfielders worth considering from Barcelona against a weak Dynamo side.
3Marcus RashfordManchester United@İstanbul Başakşehir9MHe leads in goals scored, attempts and Istanbul are one of the teams with most attempts conceded.
4Joao FelixAtletico Madrid@Lokomotiv Moscow9M
5Kevin De BruyneManchester CityVs Olympiacos11.5M
6Mohamed SalahLiverpool@Atalanta11.5M
7Angel Di MariaPSG@RB Leipzig9MThese teams last met in the UCL semis last season where PSG won 0-3 and Di Maria was involved in all goals.
8Hakim ZiyechChelseaVs Rennes9M
9Leroy SaneBayern Munich@RB Salzburg9.5M
10Jadon SanchoBorussia Dortmund@Club Brugge8M

1Joshua KimmichBayern Munich@RB Salzburg6.5MWho doesn't love a OOP defender against a team with a fragile defense in a game where goals are expected?
2Sergi RobertoBarcelonaVs Dynamo Kyiv5.5M
3Kyle WalkerManchester CityVs Olympiacos5.5MCity are dominating their group and I don't think anything else can be expected in the next game.
4Nicolas TagliaficoAjax@Midtjylland5M
5DaniloJuventus@Ferencvárosi5MFerencvárosi might've scored in both games so far but the Juventus defense is much better than what they have faced.
6PepePortoVs Marseille5MMarseille is 1 of 3 teams yet to score.
7Marcos AcuñaSevillaVs Krasnodar5M
8Renan LodiAtletico Madrid@Lokomotiv Moscow5M

Goalkeepers

1NetoBarcelonaVs Dynamo Kyiv5MIf you kept a cleansheet against Juventus then a injury-hit Dynamo Kyiv shouldn't be a problem right?
2Wojciech SzczęsnyJuventus@Ferencvárosi5.5M
3Jan OblakAtletico Madrid@Lokomotiv Moscow6M
4EdersonManchester City@Marseille6M
5Edouard MendyChelseaVs Rennes5MHe is the top scoring goalkeeper over 2 games and looks like the final piece Chelsea were missing in their defense.
