1Romelu LukakuInter MilanVs Shakhtar Donetsk10.8MThe last time Inter played Shakhtar at home, Lukaku scored two goals and assisted another in a 5-0 win in the Europa League semi-final.
2NeymarPSGVs İstanbul Başakşehir11.4M
3Ciro ImmobileLazioVs Club Brugge10.5MClub Brugge has to be one of the easier opponents for Immobile to score against if he is to extend his goal-scoring streak to eight games.
4Cristiano RonaldoJuventus@Barcelona12M
5Kylian MbappéPSGVs İstanbul Başakşehir10.9MIt seems like the right game for him to break his goal-scoring deadlock.
6Lionel MessiBarcelonaVs Juventus12.1MThe Atomic Flea is still the most explosive player to get this week.
7Alassane PléaBorussia M'gladbach@Real Madrid8.4MPléa is now the highest scoring forward in the game and is in absolutely unreal form in the UCL scoring five goals and assisting three so far. A goal/assist every 45 minutes. He is going to be a key player if Borussia are to get a result from this game with Real Madrid also in contention to qualify.
8Mergim BerishaRB SalzburgVs Atletico Madrid7.2MHe has now scored in three consecutive champions league games and plays for a strong attacking team.
9Karim BenzemaReal MadridVs Borussia M'gladbach10.5M
10Dušan TadićAjaxVs Atalanta9.1M

Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Bruno FernandesManchester United@RB Leipzig9.5MHe is one of the best options regardless of which opposition he plays against and United will be hoping for the best of him in a must win game. There will be time constraints for him however as they play the Manchester Derby next in a few days.
2Joao FelixAtletico Madrid@RB Salzburg9MSomeone who shoots at will is hard to ignore against a team that can't stop conceding.
3Diogo JotaLiverpool@Midtjylland7.9MIt is customary to rank a player who plays against Midtjylland even if he is surrounded by B team players in a meaningless game.
4Lars StindlBorussia M'gladbach@Real Madrid8.2M
5Joaquín CorreaLazioVs Club Brugge8.1MCorrea is listed as a midfielder but plays OOP as striker and has strong underlying stats that need to be converted into goals and assists.
6Jadon SanchoBorussia Dortmund@Zenit10M
7Christian PulisicChelseaVs Krasnodar9MChelsea against the team that has conceded the most shots in the league is a big mismatch. It was evident in their 0-4 victory in the reverse fixture where Pulisic scored.
8Dominik SzoboszlaiRB SalzburgVs Atletico Madrid7.1M
9Ferran TorresManchester CityVs Marseille7.7M
10Serge GnabryBayern MunichVs Lokomotiv Moscow9.8MHe will be desperate to turn his bad run of form around and Lokomotiv is a game where he can test his upside.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Trent Alexander-ArnoldLiverpool@Midtjylland6.7MHe averaged 10.3 points in the first three games and had two assists to go along with three clean sheets before injury brought him to a halt. Not often do defenders have so much upside to go along with a good opportunity at securing a clean sheet.
2MarquinhosPSGVs İstanbul Başakşehir5.6M
3Achraf HakimiInter MilanVs Shakhtar Donetsk5.9M
4Kyle WalkerManchester CityVs Marseille5.6MMarseille might have finally scored their first goal(s) of the tournament but I am still not convinced since both were penalties against Olympiacos. They still don't look like much of a threat from open play.
5Mats HummelsBorussia Dortmund@Zenit5.1M
6Cristian RomeroAtalanta@Ajax4.9MNot expecting a cleansheet but his ability to get recoveries is his most appealing attribute.
7Zaidu SanuziPorto@Olympiacos4.8MPorto have kept a cleansheet in their last four UCL games. The only time they conceded goals was in a 3-1 loss against Manchester City on MD1.
8AngeliñoRB LeipzigVs Manchester United5.4MHe is a defender with numbers that would even make forwards jealous. Angeliño has returned with a goal or assist in nine out of 15 games this season.
9Diego CarlosSevilla@Rennes5.1M
10César AzpilicuetaChelseaVs Krasnodar4.9MChelsea and City have conceded the least goals so far with just one.

Goalkeepers

1Zach SteffenManchester CityVs Marseille4.2MCity have conceded just one goal so far and I expect them to end the group stage that way.
2Keylor NavasPSGVs İstanbul Başakşehir5.5M
3Agustín MarchesínPorto@Olympiacos5.2M
4Roman BürkiBorussia Dortmund@Zenit5.7M
5Caoimhin KelleherLiverpool@Midtjylland3.8MThe cheapest keeper in the game and has kept a clean sheet in both of his games for Liverpool so far. Perfect if you need a keeper just for this week.
