Fantasy Team Picks
Peter Gulacsi ensured his side stayed in the tie with him keeping Liverpool at bay for an extended period the last time around.
Although he’s far from the player which has lighting up the pitch for Liverpool last year, Trent Alexander-Arnold has still managed to carve up the two assists for Liverpool this term.
The returning Fabinho and the imperious Andrew Robertson complete the three man pick from the club for us.
The goal Sadio Mane crafted the last time these two met sees us entrust the player for this tie as well.
With four goals to his name in the Champions, Diogo Jota used the tournament as a stepping stone to nail his place in the club’s gameplan. We’ll also be opting for Curtis Jones owing to his layup in the first round.
Marcel Sabitzer might not have managed to pull off a goal the last time these two met but the player was the most influential player for his side in attack. Dani Olmo slots in next to him with the two making for a daunting attacking partnership.
Liverpool’s top scorer in this competition as well with the 4 goals and an assist, Mohamed Salah was an instant pick from the team. The two assists for Christopher Nkunku meanwhile see us opt for him from the visiting side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 5 goal contributions in his kitty, Salah is our captain while Nkunku is the vice-captain.
Gulacsi, Robertson, Fabinho, Trent, Mane, Jones, Marcel, Jota, Olmo, Salah, Nkunku
