Not only Serie A: since last year, fantasy football also lands in the main European leagues, with the Eurolegies that will allow you to buy and deploy the main champions on the football scene. In this way, you will be able to compete with eleven Premier League teams and with six teams for each of the other top five leagues: therefore, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Liga and Serie A. Below, we suggest some names to buy for your fantasy team.
DOORMAN: Starting from the English championship and, in particular, from the goalkeeper, they cannot fail to impress the only 4 goals conceded by Edouard Mendy, Chelsea’s revelation goalkeeper last season, who this year is proving to be at extraordinary levels. The Franco-Senegalese certainly benefits from the now more than tested defensive phase of Thomas Tuchel, boasting a fantavoto average that could be the envy of some role players (6.06).
DEFENDERS: Moving on to the defenders, a good name could be that of Sergio Reguillon, left-back of Tottenham who has already recorded a goal and two assists in the league: a tally already substantial, but which could further increase with the arrival on the bench of Antonio Conte, who has always been attentive to the game on the flanks. Always for the role of full-back (this time right) intrigues Ricardo Pereira of Leicester: the Portuguese, still fasting on goals this season, has so far served the many injuries suffered, which have limited his minutes in this first part of the championship, but his thrust on the flanks could represent a good weapon for Brendan Rodgers . The last name we propose is that of Joao Cancelo, Manchester City full-back currently stopped at two seasonal assists: he is a real top of the department, which Guardiola hardly gives up and who, with his technique, can certainly give you joys from a fantasy football perspective.
MIDFIELDERS: As for the midfielders chapter, we propose first of all Raphinha, Brazilian offensive winger currently in force at Leeds United: for him already 4 goals and a fantasy average of 8.21, which have made his price rise (passed from the initial 15 to the current 20): his could, however, be a name slightly underestimated, which is why (without the ban on spending spree) betting on him might not be a bad idea. Another interesting profile is that of Smith-Rowe, who has become a real staple in Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal: a speech similar to that already seen regarding Raphina, in the sense that he is not a player of the highest level, but who certainly has several bonuses in his legs ( already 4 goals and 2 assists).
The bet could be Donny instead there is de Beek: the Dutchman has practically never found space in Solskjaer’s eleven, but with the Norwegian sacking he could be one of the great relaunched under the new management (his ownership in the important Champions League match against Villareal is tangible proof). We conclude with the name of Maison Mount of Chelsea, protagonist of the great start to the season of the Blues: already last year, the Englishman has repeatedly shown a good familiarity with scoring, a trend confirmed also in this first part of the championship (for him 3 goals and 1 assist).
FORWARDS: Moving on to the main course, the forwards, there is certainly no shortage of alternatives in a league full of champions such as the Premier League. However, we prefer to focus on those players who do not fall into the “absolute top” category. Here, then, that a first low cost solution could be Ollie Watkins Aston Villa: in the 37 games played in the Premier League last season, the center-forward scored 14 goals and 5 assists, an important loot also considering his placement in the league table. Villans; this year, Watkins is stuck with just 3 goals, but Aston Villa is counting a lot on the goals of their striker, who could represent a more than valid player from the last slots.
More obvious, but still not to be considered as a top-tier player, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal, which until now has not managed to give too many joys to their fantasy coaches, especially thanks to the two mistakes from the spot: at the same time, the forward has scored 4 goals in this championship, and remains the main beacon of a team in sharp recovery. We conclude with the name of Jarrod Bowen, West Ham’s offensive winger already starring with 2 goals and 4 assists in the surprising start of the season Hammers: unlike the first two names, Bowen certainly plays farther from the goal, but his could still be an interesting profile from a fantasy football perspective.
DOORMAN: As for the German championship, obviously starting with the goalkeeper, the name Yann cannot fail to tease Summer, extreme defender of Borussia Mönchengladbach, great protagonist with his Switzerland at Euro 2020. In truth, not a screaming start to the season for him, who in the first 12 games conceded 14 goals: nevertheless, the performances have always been at height (average score of 6.17) and moreover he is a real specialist in penalty kicks (ask Mbappé, but not only), therefore, a goalkeeper who could even give you some +3 during the season.
DEFENDERS: As for the defenders, it deserves a mention Angelino for Leipzig: last season, despite the injury causing him to miss several league games, the Spanish full-back recorded 4 goals and as many assists; still dry, however, in this Bundesliga, but the advanced position (Marsch often deploys him in the three behind the tip) makes him very attractive in a fantasy football key. From one Borussia to another, the second name is that of Raphael Warrior of Borussia Dortmund: for him a fantavoto average as a striker (8.7) with three goals (including one from a penalty kick) and an assist in the first seven games played. We conclude the defense department with Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich, returning from a not exactly exciting year, after being one of the main protagonists in the treble obtained in 2020: for the Canadian 3 assists and no goals in eleven matches, but, especially considering the frequent goals of the Bavarians in the Bundesliga, this number could be expected to increase.
MIDFIELDERS: Moving on to the midfielders, we first propose the name Cristopher Nkuku, a French talent from Leipzig, already decisive with 5 goals and 3 assists: the risk, it must be said, could be that of a very high auction price, but the player’s numbers, his importance in the team mechanisms could and, above all, the position on the field (sometimes even center forward), would also justify an important expense. Also from Leipzig comes the second of the names we recommend: Dominik His room, Hungarian winger stopped last season by an injury that kept him away from the fields for 191 days. Now, however, the former Salzburg seems ready to put the complicated moment behind him: so far, for him only one goal and three assists, but watch out for the set pieces factor, with the Hungarian who, in addition to taking corners and free kicks , should be among the candidates to present himself from eleven meters (it was he who kicked with PSG after the mistake of Andre Silva).
Third recommended is Florian landlord of Bayer Leverkusen: despite the age of 18, the boy has now established himself as a staple of aspirine, as confirmed by the 3 goals and 4 assists scored in this start of the championship. Finally, we close with Jonas Hoffman, already scored on five occasions in this start of the season for Borussia Mönchengladbach: most of Hutter’s play passes from his right foot; moreover, he is usually responsible for the shots from the flag, an important factor in an assist perspective.
FORWARDS: If you are looking for a bomber, then put aside a lot of money, why have someone like Robert on your team? Lewandowski it will certainly cost you a large chunk of your fantasy credits: his will certainly be a foregone name, but it can really be a devastating weapon to win your fantasy football. In fact, the Pole seems to have maintained that average goal from Playstation that last year earned him the record of goals scored in a single Bundesliga season: for the Bayern Munich phenomenon, 14 goals scored in just 12 games (which 9 goals in 5 Champions League matches are added). In short, if you are looking for a center forward with – at least – 30 guaranteed goals, there is no other name to bet on than that of Robert LewanGOALski: very important expense, but guaranteed return.
Another recommended is Patrick Schick, old acquaintance of our league with the shirts of Rome and Sampdoria: after the good European played with the Czech Republic, the forward seems to have finally found that continuity with Bayer Leverkusen (for him, already eight goals in the first twelve league games ) whose lack was one of the main flaws of a player whose talent was never questioned. For the last bands you could finally bet on Wout Weghorst of Wolfsburg: stopped at 3 goals and 1 assist, the Dutch striker represents, with his meter and 97, the prototype of the old-fashioned center forward, able to assert his physicality within the penalty area and, often and willingly, put the ball behind the opponent’s goal.
DOORMAN: Let’s move on to a Spanish championship which, compared to last year, is strongly weakened by the departures of Messi and Sergio Ramos. Starting with the goalkeepers, and taking for granted the value of someone like Oblak, we focus on Bond, aka Yassine Bounou, of Sevilla: already last year, Lopetegui’s team made defensive solidity one of their strengths, with 33 goals conceded in 38 matches; in projection, this year Sevilla would do even better, having conceded just 9 goals in 13 matches played.
DEFENDERS: For the role of defender, like José Gimenez Atletico Madrid: despite a complicated start to the season – for him as for the colchoneros – the Uruguayan central is undoubtedly a leader of the defense of Cholo Simeone, a coach who directs a large part of his game on the defensive phase: it must be said that he is not a bonus center, but by focusing on an improvement in his performance and taking advantage of an auction price that should prove to be low, it could be a good deal.
Staying in Madrid, but moving to the side
white, a good name could be Ferland Mendy, returned to take the left wing of the You meringues after the very long injury suffered in May: scoring even at the last match against Granada, the Frenchman could be a slightly underestimated name at your auction. The bet could be instead Araujo of Barcelona, Uruguayan full-back born in 1999: after a complicated start with the previous management Ronald Koeman, the boy could be one of the faces of the new Barca of Xavi.
MIDFIELDERS: After a rather narrow defender department, La Liga instead offers some interesting names in relation to midfielders. First of all, Yeremi intrigues Pine of Villareal, a Spanish offensive winger who has also entered Luis Enrique’s national team: after an excellent start to the season, the forward seems to have lost some continuity and minutes in the last outings of the Yellow Submarine, but Emery is betting a lot on him and still has some time to get back to being decisive.
We then continue with Papu Gomez: who does not remember the extraordinary years spent in our championship – above all, but not only – with the Atalanta shirt? The injury accused with Argentina forced him to miss several matches, but now, fully back at Lopetegui’s disposal, he is ready to enchant with his left-handed Sanchez Pizjuàn.
Recommended then Ferreira Carrasco Atletico Madrid: the Belgian, returned in 2019 to wear the jersey of colchoneros after his experience in China, he was among the first architects of the triumph in La Liga last season; good start again this year with 2 goals scored, in addition to 3 assists and a fantasy voting average of 7.63. Despite the immense caliber of a champion who has won everything, Tony’s purchase price shouldn’t be too high Kroos: if so, her name might be a good call. Real Madrid rely heavily on the German’s feet to build play, and he is also the main candidate at the set piece.
FORWARDS: Let’s start the attackers speech with the name of Memphis Depay, one of the few positive notes of this Barcelona: the Dutchman has already scored 7 goals in this first part of the championship and is undoubtedly the most dangerous man for the Blaugrana; his role in the project – and in the attack – of Xavi could become even more central following the problem reported by the Only Aguero, who could even lead the Argentine to retire. We continue with Alexander Isaac, Swedish striker of Real Sociedad: for him, already last year, 17 goals in 34 matches played in the Spanish league; this year, the former Dortmund is stopped at 3 goals, but this seems a number destined to increase, given the confidence that Alguacil, the coach of the Basques, has in his striker. Last name on the list is that of Antoine Griezmann, returned to Simeone’s court after his experience in chiaroscuro at Barcelona: not a simple start to the season for Le Petit Diable, with just two goals scored in ten league games with the colchoneros; nevertheless, the Frenchman can hardly have lost that familiarity with scoring which, in five seasons at Atletico, has led him to score 94 goals in La Liga.
DOORMAN: For a heavily impoverished Liga, we find instead a Ligue 1 enriched by the pharaonic transfer campaign carried out by Paris Saint-Germain. For the role of goalkeeper, however, without prejudice to the convenience of investing in the Navas-Donnarumma duo, we prefer to focus on Pau Lopez, who came to Marseille in the summer after the not-so-unforgettable year spent in Rome. Yet, the Spaniard seems to have regained confidence with the OM shirt, having conceded just 12 goals and being able to boast an average rating of 6.29 (fantasy voting average which is instead of 5.43, however not bad for a goalkeeper).
DEFENDERS: For the defense, we make our debut with another Marseille player, as well as another old acquaintance of our league: Pol Lirola, protagonist in Serie A with the Fiorentina shirt. Back in France during the summer, the winger has already taken the Marseille wing and, despite only one assist and no goal, it could be a decent low-cost solution for your defense. Middle name is that of Sergio Ramos, heavily penalized by injuries in this first part of the season, which prevented him from making his debut with the PSG shirt: a circumstance that could – and indeed should – significantly reduce his evaluation at auction.
Given the superiority of the Parisians in the French league and also considering the former Real Madrid’s familiarity with the goal, betting on him could be convenient. Last name is Emerson Palmieri, former Roma and Chelsea who married in Lyon during the summer: even in his case, the adventure with the French did not start in the best way, with only one assist, however compensated by an expulsion, and some performances not entirely convincing. In any case, his push on the wing could create dangers for the defenses of Ligue 1: a valid solution for the last slots.
MIDFIELDERS: For the role of midfield, like Houssem Aouar of Lyon: for some years now, the Frenchman has been one of the cover men of Bosz’s team, with good performances that have also earned him the interest of some top clubs. From this year, the player is no longer the first candidate to show up on the spot (the penalties are up to Dembelè) but his geometry in the middle of the field and the set pieces factor can represent a good weapon at your disposal. After Paul Lopez and Emerson Palmieri, another former Roma could find space and minutes in the French championship: Justin Kluivert, landed in Nice after his loan experience at Leipzig. The Dutchman has recently recovered from the injury that forced him to miss the last seven matches of Ligue 1, but now he seems ready to carve out a space in a team that, even without him, is doing very well: currently, the Nice players they are in second place, behind only the PSG of phenomena.
Third recommended for the role of midfield is Georgino Wijnaldum, one of the many market hits scored by PSG during the summer: even in his case, not a happy start to the season, with still no goals in the league (two goals, however, in the Champions League), but it is of a player who, at the time of Liverpool, on several occasions was able to hurt the opposing defenses with his insertions and his shot from outside. We conclude with Renato Sanches of Lille, the object of Milan’s desire, but at the moment a staple of the team that, last year, brought home a title from the most unexpected: despite not being familiar with the goals of the three previous names, the Portuguese could be a decent guarantee in view of the vote, although up to now the disappointing start of the season has paid off.
FORWARDS: First name of the attackers chapter is that of Moussa Dembele of Lyon: after the disappointing experience at Atletico Madrid (5 appearances and no goals) the forward is back to wear the Lyon shirt, and will try to regain the confidence that had led him to score 31 goals between 2018 and 2020 He too was severely slowed down by the injury he accused on 22 September against Troyes, but now he seems ready to take back the center of the OL attack. We then advocate Ben yedder of Monaco, front man of the Monegasques last season with 20 goals scored in the league: once again this year, the former Sevilla striker boasts an average of one goal every two games (7 goals and 14 matches played).
We close with a name that is not, and never will be, just any name: Lionel Messi, arrived in the summer after a life spent in azulgrana. It seems almost unbelievable that the player who dominated in Spain for more than a decade only found his first goal in Ligue 1 last matchday: yet, this circumstance could be a good weapon in your favor, allowing you to buy The Pulga at a price much lower than its potential. If you manage to get it without paying the figure of an absolute top, then bet on thirty.
