Yahoo DFS Soccer: Wednesday UCL Cheat Sheet

FORWARDS

Erling Haaland, BVB vs. MCI (€32): Haaland's three-game goalless run is his longest dry spell of the season, but with Dortmund playing catch-up from the opening whistle, we can expect he'll be eager to get back among the goals.

Mohamed Salah, LIV vs. RMA (€31): Salah comes in hot with a goal in three consecutive appearances. He hammered off seven shots in Premier League action over the weekend, and with Liverpool needing at least two goals to have any hope of advancing to the UCL semi-finals, we can expect him to be firing at will once again Wednesday.

Marco Reus, BVB vs. MCI (€14): Reus is a real question mark for Wednesday's clash after he exited in the 67th minute over the weekend. If he passes a late fitness test ahead of the game, he comes in as a good value forward considering he's scored or assisted in four of his last five. Be sure to look over starting lineups before locking him in.

MIDFIELDERS

Kevin De Bruyne, MCI vs. BVB (€29): De Bruyne is known for his play-making and assists, but he's been a goal machine of late with four in as many games. He continues to have a near monopoly of set pieces, making him a prime spend-up target with Manchester City the biggest favorite. Riyad Mahrez (€23) has also been in good form and would be a viable salary-saving pivot at €6 less.

Diogo Jota, LIV vs. RMA (€19): Jota has emerged as an integral part of the Liverpool attack, and if he keeps his starting spot, he's available as an excellent value in the midfield. Liverpool will be throwing numbers forward, which would certainly bode well for Jota's potential fantasy returns if he's in the starting XI.

Giovanni Reyna, BVB vs. MCI (€13): If Reus is ruled out, Reyna could stand to benefit from his absence and would provide good value at just €13. He supplied an assist in Bundesliga play over the weekend, and with BVB in need of goals, he could emerge as a sleeper play if given the opportunity.

DEFENDERS

Trent Alexander-Arnold, LIV vs. RMA (€19): Alexander-Arnold is heating back up with a goal and an assist over his last three outings. He continues to take a sizable share of set pieces, and with Liverpool playing catch-up, we could see one of those games where TAA turns up with video-game-like crossing numbers.

Raphael Guerreiro, BVB vs. MCI (€18): Guerreiro's role on set pieces makes him a strong fantasy target any time he takes the field. Wednesday is no different with Dortmund playing from behind and chasing a 2-1 deficit. Look for Guerreiro to be heavily involved on the attacking end, both in open play and on set pieces.

Ozan Kabak, LIV vs. RMA (€14): If Liverpool are to pull off a comeback, they'll need to turn in a strong defensive performance at the back. Kabak will look to anchor the back-line and he's capable of picking up defensive points across the board. He can also be a viable value play as part of a Liverpool stack to help squeeze in the star power.

GOALKEEPER

Thibaut Courtois, RMA at LIV (€15): With Real Madrid nursing a 3-1 aggregate lead, Courtois will be counted on to keep the Liverpool attack at bay to see them through to the semi-finals. He comes at a notable discount compared to the other three goalkeepers in the player pool, and if he's able to stand tall he could come away with a healthy point haul from saves alone.
