Champions League: Attacking options are Real Messi now !


We did toy with the idea of running an individual Champions League game… But realistically we already struggle to keep up to speed with the Hollyoaks omnibus as it is!

That’s why FantasyYIRMA recommends Fantasy iTeam if you are looking for Champions League Fantasy Action.

Champions League: Gameround 5

Messi is OUT…

Messi is OUT! Ronaldo is???

We knew injuries and rotation would play havoc with our iTeams this round. The bad news is that Messi will definitely miss the next 2 Champions League games. Ronaldo is currently a major doubt for Wednesday. We should know more tomorrow. The good news is that Torres is back in training and could be fit enough to start… Make sure you check out the player injury statuses this evening. We will have them all updated after the weekends fixtures.

Continues below..

So who should you replace Messi with? Lewandowski should be a great choice. Dortmund have an injury crisis at the back. Hummels, Schmelzer and Subotic will all miss the home game against Napoli. So I expect them to go all-out attack… They are also only 3rd in their group. They need to win both of their remaining group games to guarantee qualification. The likes of Reus and Lewandowski will not be rested.

The other options are RVP, Rooney, Benzema, Ibrahimovic, Costa, Giroud, Neymar, Aguero, Negredo or ze Hulk… The likes of Costa, Neymar and Ibrahimovic, are all slight rotation risks. Atletico have already qualified and Barcelona and PSG both need only 1 more point to guarantee top spot in their respective groups. Man Utd, Arsenal and Zenit all need results in their remaining games, so their forwards should feature in both. The Man City forwards are tricky prospects. Will City try and top the group? They could rest their players and settle for 2nd…

Just to complicate things even more you, should start thinking about dumping players from teams that will miss out on the last 16. The likes of Juventus and Benfica will really struggle to make the cut. Dortmund are also struggling but I think they will make it. It’s going to be an interesting end to the group stages. There will be a few upsets I think…

If you haven’t created your free Champions League iTeam yet, it’s not too late. With lots of Gameround prizes still to give away, it’s definitely worth having a go. Newly created iTeams have been winning a lot of the GR prizes so far. You can sign up for free here –
