SPITCH Champ League Preview

The Champ. League is back from the break and starts with the knockout round. First, Paris, Real, Sporting and Man. City open the matchday on Tuesday. Pep Guardiola’s team is currently not dropping any points in the league, but the Citizens have yet to prove their mettle in the Champ. League. Paris has arguably the best squad in the world, at least on paper, but despite their star ensemble they only managed three wins in the group stage. The Madrid royals, on the other hand, played an excellent group stage and apart from a defeat against Sheriff Tiraspol, did not make any mistakes. Wednesday will be no less spectacular, with Inter playing Liverpool and Salzburg taking on Bayern. So we can look forward to two evenings packed with top-class soccer.


Keylor Navas (8.2 million, Paris): Due to the loss of Donnarumma, Navas will also play in the Champ. League in goal. Already in the league Navas could show that he is ready when needed. He could convince with his strong reflexes on the line and keep the zero for his team.


Benjamin Pavard (13.8 million, Bayern): Pavard is always a good option in defense, and with Lewandowski up front in the box, his crosses have the perfect recipient. It should also be possible for him against Salzburg to make many runs along the sidelines and feed his fellow strikers with crosses.

Joao Cancelo (21.2 million, Man. City): The Citizens defender is attracting attention with his extremely high average points of 413. Because he is always involved in the offense, he scores more points than almost any other defender, especially in front of the goal.

Ruben Dias (16.4 million, Man. City): Dias already set the scene for his teammate with an assist in the 4-0 win over Norwich at the weekend. In the end, he also had a shot on goal and five intercepted balls on his tally. Against Sporting, the central defender will probably be back up front in a heap and will also collect his points there.

Dani Carvajal (11.8 million, Real): The full-back of the royals can score in the game against Paris mainly with his experience against players like Neymar and Messi. The fact that he has often played in this duel means that he will know what to expect. Against the Parisians, he will probably have a lot to do and can prove himself in many duels.


Marcelo Brozović (13.6 million, Inter): Brozović has been convincing in the Champ. League with 381 average points and even managed to shine in the 2-0 defeat against Real with 406 points, although he only played 60 minutes. Against Liverpool, the Croatian will again put his foot down and hopefully give you a lot of points.

Kevin De Bruyne (27.2 million, Man. City): De Bruyne is the linchpin in Pep Guardiola’s system. The Belgian is currently in top form and has excelled in his last eight games with five goals and two assists. Against Norwich he was left on the bench to regenerate. Now he can continue in the Champ. League where he had previously left off.

Noah Okafor (8.0m, Salzburg): At the weekend, Okafor helped his team to victory against R. Wien with an assist and the decisive goal. On Wednesday, it’s against Bayern, which is currently weakening in the defense. So it can not be ruled out that Salzburg will be successful in front of goal. Thus Okafor for 8 million is a man you should have on your mind.


Diogo Jota (14.8 million, Liverpool): Jota scored a brace against Leicester on Thursday and is close on the heels of his teammate Salah in the race for the “Golden Boot” in the Prem. League. For 14.8 million, he is definitely a good fallback option on a Champions League night to the more expensive strikers like Lewandowski or Mahrez.

Edin Dzeko (12.9m, Inter): Dzeko saved Milan a point against Napoli at the weekend with his equalizing goal just after halftime. He has 17 shots on goal in his last five games, plus two goals. This makes the choice for the veteran and not his teammate Lautaro Martinez, who is goal-less since six games.

Karim Adeyemi (10.6 million, Salzburg): The youngster is always good for a goal and is currently the top scorer in the Austrian Bundesliga. Since Bayern is currently also good for a goal against at times, you should definitely think about bringing Adeyemi on for 10.6 million.

Other alternatives:

Other players to keep on your radar are Vinicius Junior (17.8m, Real), who could start for the injured Karim Benzema. Joel Matip (14,7 Mio., Liverpool) who can shine with a 75% tackling rate. Last but not least, Achraf Hakimi (14,8 Mio., Paris) who is getting more involved in the offensive play of the Parisians and was immediately successful with an assist.
