Fantasy Team Picks
Keylor Navas has been a pristine value addition to PSG, a player who makes for an instant pick come today.
Marquinhos and his ability to traverse up the park and contribute to the club’s attacking soirees sees him give Navas company.
Barcelona on the other hand will see us begin with Jordi Alba, the club’s top assists provider with the two layups in his kitty. With the club having kept four cleansheets in the last month in the La Liga, CB Charles Lenglet also links up with Alba.
For Barcelona, Miralem Pjanic and Frenkie de Jong will be crucial today. The two have controlled the midfield for the side with not only their ability to spray the ball around quickly but the tackles and blocks they have instilled in place as well.
Pedro Gonzalez is making massive headway into the club’s modus operandi with him acting as the catalyst of the side’s attacks off late. Sergio Busquets completes the quartet from the side for this affair.
PSG elsewhere see us opt for the services of Marco Verratti with the player working his way past tight spaces with ease.
Lionel Messi is Barcelona’s top scorer in the Champions League as well to see him as ever line up for us. Kylian Mbappe with the two goals and three assists wraps up our set of picks from PSG.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Lionel’s three goals and two assists make him our captain while Mbappe is the vice-captain.
