UCL Fantasy MD8 Captain
It is also the last MD of UCL Fantasy to feature four calendar days. You have 3 opportunities to change your captain.
We look at the possible captain picks across each calendar day of MD8.
UCL Fantasy MD8 Captain
Tuesday 8 Mar
Liverpool and Bayern are obvious targets for this calendar day.
Lewandowski (12.1m) should be the hottest favourite as captain. He is at 48% ownership and already has 9 goals in the UCL. He did blank on MD7 but never write him off. The best option here is to definitely captain him on 8th Mar and plan for alternative should that fail to return.
Sane (9.5m) is another strong captain contender. He is at 27% ownership and is the current UCL Fantasy top scorer. He has 13 goals and 13 assists in 34 appearances to date but his form has dipped since the winter break. He only registered 2 goals and 2 assists in 8 games since December and has been out of the first XI in the last 2 league games.
Never ignore Mo Salah (11.0m). Liverpool have a 2-0 lead but it is not certainty that they will progress. They would still put up a strong team and need a stable performance against Inter.
Wednesday 9 Mar
Two awkward fixtures on 9th Mar.
Real Madrid and PSG would likely be a very cagey affair as it was in the first leg. With Mbappe out, there are no clear captaincy options.
With City 5-0 up, they are very likely to shuffle. You can wait for the starting XI and captain either of Cancelo (6.5m), Laporte (5.1m) or Mahrez (9.5m), depending on who you have in your team.
Tuesday 15 Mar
No clear captaincy options in the United-Atletico game, Ronaldo (11.5m) is a sentimental favourite but he is not 100% fit. Fernandes (10.9m) is an option if you are desperate but he has not scored in the UCL this season.
Haller (9.4m) is the one to target for Ajax. He has 11 goals to date and Ajax need a result to progress.
Wednesday 16 Mar
If you are still flapping over your captain by 16th Mar you may be already in some trouble
Vlahovic (9.0m) is the best if not the only option from the Juventus-Villarreal game.
Otherwise, target Chelsea defenders like Rudiger (5.9m) and Thiago Silva (5.7m) or even Mendy (6.4m), as their clean sheet is favoured.
In a nutshell, try to secure a captain pick early and stick with it as long as there is a return. This is the knockout stage and in the second leg we may expect some stall results.
