Euro 2016 fantasy football advice – Sunday July 3rd preview

The fixture

Here’s the fixture from the BBC website in UK time:

Team news

Remember that there are no transfer options for the McDonalds format, just substitutions and captain changes. Telegraph (20 transfers in the knockout) and Sun (11 transfers in the knockout) you can bring in players between matches after the lineups (an hour before roughly) have been announced.

Here’s the possible lineups and team news/injuries from the UEFA site:

FFGeek team plans

As I said above, remember that there are no transfer options for the McDonalds format, just substitutions and captain changes. Telegraph (20 transfers in the knockout) and Sun (11 transfers in the knockout) you can bring in players between matches after the lineups (an hour before roughly) have been announced.

I’ll do transfers once the lineups are announced an hour or so before the game.

The McDonalds format

I’ve got 5 French players here in Sagna, Matuidi, Umtiti, Griezmann and Payet.

I’ll substitute the three 1 pointers in my team.  I’ll change captain from Gomez to Griezmann

The Sun Dream Team

I’ve only got Payet as Rami is suspended.

With only 7 transfers I’m only replacing those players as they go out. Perisic, Meunier and Barzagli are in that position at the moment. My problem is that my 3 forwards are still in the competition so do I want to take out one of those players for Griezmann.  I will put in another French defender for Barzagli.

I have only Payet playing with Rami suspended.

I’ll put in Griezmann for Lukaku and maybe another defender for De Bruyne and switch to 4-3-3

Some transfer options

Remember that there are no transfer options for the McDonalds format, just substitutions and captain changes. Telegraph (20 transfers in the knockout) and Sun (11 transfers in the knockout) you can bring in players between matches after the lineups (an hour before roughly) have been announced.

Also remember that different formats of the game classify different players in different positions

I’ve backed France for this game

Defenders

A French defender – say Sagna

Midfielders

Payet

Pogba

Sigurdsson

Forwards

Giroud

Griezmann

Some stats

Here’s the pre-tournament and Group stage stats for the attacking players and pre-tournament stats for the defenders

    I earnt 10 points from my captain yesterday , is it worth taking the risk and changing it to griezmann for today’s match , I have lloris koscielny payet and griezmann any advice

    • Kardan

      If griezmann scores 1 goal you only earn 1 point from this gamble,Payet on the other hand is more interesting choise imo

  • Zulfikri

    Giroud to score against Neuer or Ronaldo against Hennessey?

    • G

      Although Portugal have not impressed, I would say there is a greater chance of Ronaldo scoring. Ramsey is out for Wales – who in my opinion has been playing better than Bale.
