Euro fantasy football tips – Thursday July 7th 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) and 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:

Schweinsteiger is fit to play according to the latest news.  Interesting they have Umtiti starting instead of Rami

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 4 German players in Boateng, Draxler, Ozil and Muller.  I’ve got 5 French players in Sagna, Pogba, Rami Griezmann and Payet.

I’ll decide on subs once the teams are announced.   I won’t be changing captain from Ronaldo

The Sun Dream Team

I’ve got Rami, Sagna, Payet and Griezmann from the French team and Hector and Gotze from the German team.  I’ve got 4 transfers left.  I’d like to at least replace Bale with Muller but that will probably be it

6 transfers left.  I’ve got Rami, Sagna, Payet and Griezmann from the French team and Hector from the German team.  I’ll probably make 2 transfers with Bale and the injured Gomez out for hopefully Muller and Ozil/Gotze depending on the lineups

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

Can’t split the teams either could win

Defenders

A French defender – say Sagna, Koscielny

A German defender – say Hector or Boateng

Midfielders

Payet

Pogba

Ozil

Draxler

Gotze (check lineups)

Forwards

Giroud

Griezmann

Muller

Some stats

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

    Lloris , Hector , Kross , Ozil

    im 22 Points ahead of my friend if i make no changes , the only different players we have are he has Sagna and Pogba , any advice on how to set my team up should i go 442 keep Mario and Sanches and just bank them points

      I would do following:
      – Lloris for Hennessey
      – Hector for Taylor
      – Ozil for Bale (changing formation to 4-4-2)

      You lose only 4 points so I feel it’s worth taking the risk.

      Definitely swap bale for Ozil, and maybe swap Taylor for hector. Only 2 points lost, protect your lead, and should gain more points.

    i dont think there is a way i can fit ozil for bale , the 2 things im stuck on is the goalkeeper and do i take out a midfielder with 3 points for a second Germany midfielder ,

      Why cant you swap ozil and bale? You’re just changing formation. I played 3-4-3 yesterday with bale in, swapped to 3-5-2 today with bale out. Do bale for ozil and Taylor for kroos.

    Should I change Renato Sanches (3p) to Toni Kroos? Every point is very important for me right now ..
