How to play Euro 2020 fantasy football?
Fantasy Football is back! Pick a formation & select your squad of 15 players – 2 GGK, 5 Def, 5 Mid, 3 Fw.
Contrary to other fantasy football games, Fantasy Euro 2020 lets you draft players based on their individual qualities, instead of forcing you to draft them as a team.
Fantasy Football managers must operate within a budget of €100million (€105 million from round 16)
Gone are the days of the mega-transfer. Now, with a budget of €100 million (rising to €105 million withinside the spherical of 16), managers must be creative and resourceful to build a team capable of winning their leagues.
There are points given out if you score, assist and help your team but you lose points for the number of cards received, missing penalties, conceding goals and scoring an own goal. Points are allocated based on appearance, goals, assists and so on.
Which players could help you in building the best team in Euro 2020?
The key to winning your fantasy football league is picking players who will be involved in most of their team’s matches.
The more games they play the more chances they have to score points for you. That’s why you should always aim for the best players, those who will play every match.
However, if you’re a betting man, then Kante will be the one to look out for. Drew Bartlett, a sports stats editor at betway, said Kante can counter-attack and is lethal when playing the ball forward in Cup Euro 2021.
If you also want to make the best team, let’s have a look at some of the players who are must to pick.
Christiano Ronaldo (Portugal, €12m)
Ronaldo is a five-time Ballon d’Or winner and is currently the team’s top scorer with more than 100 goals for Portugal, which includes five European Championships. He takes free kicks as well as penalties, so there’s a good chance he will score at some point.
Harry Kane (England, €11.5m)
Entering Euro 2020, one of England’s main goal threats is a young player already regarded as one of the Three Lions’ top goalscorers in history.
At just 24 years old, Harry Kane has scored 69 international goals and he’s now cost a little less than two of the best players in the world.
Kylian Mbappe (France, €12m)
Already a World Cup winner with France, Kylian Mbappe is the most expensive player in Euro 2020 fantasy football. He’s a natural-born goalscorer, often finding himself on the score sheet every week.
Kylian Mbappe became an overnight sensation after scoring a brace against Argentina in the round of 16 during the 2018 World Cup.
Ciro Immobile (Italy, €10m)
Italy has always been one of the major forces in the history of World Cups. Even today they are considered as a dark horse for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
There is one player that might make the difference for them, and that’s Ciro Immobile. If he is on form, you can be sure that Italy will go far. Ciro Immobile is the man to provide goals, so watch out for him.
Bruno Fernandez (Portugal, €10.5m)
Boasting 28 goals for Manchester United from midfield in 2020-21, the Portuguese player can be considered one of the best picks for Euro 2021 fantasy football.
He is a key member of Portugal’s talented squad and at club level has broken into the first team with his dynamism and tenaciousness adding an attacking edge from midfield.
Gareth Bale (Wales, €9.5m)
Gareth Bale’s stock may have fallen a bit in recent years, but the attacker is still Wales’ main man and will be key to any success the Dragons have in Euro Cup 2021.
This makes him the perfect selection for an FPL team making a middle-tier push. He is at a lower price than other popular middle-tier players like Robert Lewandowski and, therefore, offers great value for the player.
Tips & Tricks for Euro 2020 Fantasy Football
Fantasy football is a game played just for fun, but it involves a lot of Competition. For winning the game you should be focused and present in the Euro 2020 championship game.
You must try playing it with your friends, it would be fun and competition both. Let’s have a look at some tips for fantasy football.
1. Pay attention, be aware of the deadline & use transfers
If you’re serious about winning, you need to be constantly pruning your team by swapping in form players and removing the deadwood.
This is particularly important when there is a wildcard player in your league, as they can often rise from the ashes and score over 100 points to help you take home a victory.
2. Enjoy a Packet of Chips
If you made a transfer this week, you have to stick with it for the rest of that same week. That’s a lot of responsibility.
The Wildcard chip helps you make changes once. With the Limitless chip, it lets you make unlimited transfers GLOBALLY for that week without being limited by your budget.
3. Choose Players Wisely
The players in the game matter the most, as they are the ones who can make or spoil the game. It is advisable that choose Goalscorers and goal makers, as they are considered to be the kind of fantasy football. Choose creative midfielders and wingers
4. Look for Differentials
If everyone chooses similar players then your team will be balanced in terms of points – that’s where choosing different players becomes a wise course of action.
Look for a squad that hasn’t been chosen by a lot of teams, because they are considered as hidden players with the potential to win the game. They’ll have less competition and therefore more points.
