UCL Fantasy Top Picks Leipzig vs PSG: Tonight the Champions League continues with the first semi final of this year’s Champions League: RB Leipzig – Paris.
Kickoff is at 21:00 (CET)
Fanteam again has a huge tournament to offer, with a guaranteed prize pool of 25.000€. The buy-in costs only 20€ per team and the winner will receive an incredible 4.000€.
But now, after a short explanation about Pursuit, we’ll go straight to the preview:
What is Pursuit?
The 25K tournament this Tuesday will again be played in Pursuit format. This means that there will be no budget problems, but at the end of the tournament you will receive bonus points the more budget you have left.
More precisely, there are 0.4 points for every 1 million in budget that is left at the end. So it can be worthwhile if you attach special importance to value for your money, while building your teams.
UCL Fantasy Leipzig vs PSG: The Odds
Paris is the clear favourite in this first semi-final in Lisbon, with a probability for winning of more than 50%, while Leipzig has only just above 20%.
For a semi-final, 85% to score by Paris is quite a high value. But even Leipzig as an underdog scores at least once in 7 out of 10 matches.
In the defense Paris has twice the CS probability as Leipzig, but also costs on average 2.6M more on Fanteam. For the goalkeepers the difference is only 2.4M, because the cheaper second goalkeeper S. Rico will probably play for Paris tonight.
In the offensive Paris has almost three times the probability to score at least 3 goals (30% – 11%). In relation to this the average prices of Paris at Fanteam seem to be absolutely fair.
UCL Fantasy Top Picks Leipzig vs PSG
C. Nkunku – Leipzig – 7.2M – MID
For Leipzig’s success today, Nkunku will be very important, especially because Werner no longer plays for Leipzig.
In the past Bundesliga season he scored 5 goals and 15 assists for Leipzig and also today his probabilities are very solid, especially if you consider that he plays for tonight’s underdog Leipzig and is listed in the midfield at Fanteam:
According to the bookmaker, both his “to score” and his “to assist” probability are strong 20% today (see table below).
For comparison: the expected striker Y. Poulsen has a to score probability of 24%, and a to assist probability of only 10%.
A. Di Maria – Paris – 10.8M – MID
At Paris tonight, everything is looking at Neymar and Mbappe, but I see Di Maria as a very interesting choice for this tournament, he returns after his yellow ban and is enormously important for Paris.
On the one hand he is cheaper than Mbappe and Neymar, which brings us important bonus points, on the other hand he is listed in the midfield on Fanteam.
He also has a very good “to score” probability of 31% today, but his “to assist” probability is even higher with 36%, no other player has a higher one in this match.
Di Maria could therefore be an interesting captain play, where most people will probably choose Mbappe and Neymar.
