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 – Who will Qualify?
Both the Semi Final first legs were a massive let down from a fantasy perspective, with just 1 goal being scored. Surely it has to be better 2nd time around?
Chelsea… the most exciting fantasy team in the entire world! Seriously though, it might be tough to watch at times, but when they park the bus, it simply cannot be moved. However you view the approach, Mourinho is determined and undeterred in his management – His objective tonight is straightforward – Qualify! .
Atletico and Liverpool had 51 attempts on goal between them, but Mark Schwarzer still managed to register 2 clean sheets, and truth be told, he was very rarely troubled. The mighty Torres, the dependable Cahill, and most of Chelsea’s attacking midfielders were all either rested or played just a handful of minutes. At the time of writing this we’re still unsure about the fitness of 3 key players. Terry, Hazard and Eto’o, all have a chance of making the game. Cech is 100% out, Mikel and Lampard are suspended, and Matic isn’t eligible.
Atletico Madrid weren’t in a position to rest anyone on Sunday. The league leaders needed a victory, and they got it, winning 1-0 against Valencia. They are now 4 points clear at the top of the Spanish Primera, what an amazing achievement. Unbelievably, they have only conceded 22 goals in 35 league games, so I don’t anticipate a high scoring 2nd leg. I can see Chelsea either sneaking this 1-0 or the game going to extra time, and then possibly penalties. Atletico don’t have any major injury concerns that we know of.
