UCL Fantasy Top Picks Lyon vs Bayern Munchen: On Wednesday the Champions League continues with the second semi final of this year’s Champions League: Lyon – Bayern Munchen.
Kickoff is at 21:00 (CET)
Fanteam again has a huge tournament to offer, with a guaranteed prize pool of 20.000€.
The buy-in costs only 20€ per team and the winner will receive an incredible 3.000€.
But now, after a short explanation about Pursuit, we’ll go straight to the preview:
What is Pursuit?
The 20K tournament this Wednesday 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 €25K Lyon – Bayern Munich : The Odds
Bayern Munich is of course the big favourite in this second semi-final.
79% probability of winning and a “to score” probability of 95% are unique for a Champions League semi final.
Lyon is accordingly the big underdog here with only 8% probability of winning and even a goal they only score in just about every second match.
In the defense accordingly Bayern Munich with a huge 43% for a clean sheet, compared to the 5% of Lyon the 10.6M average price of the Bayern defense on Fanteam seems to be very realistic.
Similarly in the offensive where the probability of scoring at least 3 goals is 52% for Bayern compared to only 6% for Lyon and again the 13.7M average price of Bayern seems to be absolutely fair and realistic.
UCL Fantasy Top Picks Lyon vs Bayern Munchen
J. Kimmich – Bayern Munchen – 11.0M – DEF
With Kimmich we have the absolute ideal case for Fantasy Soccer today.
Kimmich has a solid CS probability of 43% with Bayern, but also in the offensive he is very strong.
This is also supported by the probabilities of the bookies:
A “to score” probability of 18% and a “to assist” probability of 26% are huge for a defender and would earn us many points at Fanteam.
Kimmich is more likely to score in both categories than Davies, who is listed in midfield at Fanteam, which is a big disadvantage if you choose him.
That’s why you should not miss Kimmich tonight as one of your favourite choices for your teams.
R. Lewandowski – Bayern Munchen – 14.6M – FOR
I guess there’s not much left to say about Lewandowski at all.
In the Champions League alone, he scored 14 goals in 8 matches this season and scored 5 more assists.
Why Lewandowski is by far the best pick for me today? Just take a look at the following 2 tables:
Very interesting is the comparison of the probabilities that a player scores at least 2 goals.
Here Lewandowski has an even greater distance to his team-mates.
And especially with an expensive offensive like Bayern’s, we hope to score 2 goals with our players.
38% versus 16%, 12% and 11% is simply an extreme difference for this to happen.
