Euro 2020 Fantasy Football: The best defenders for your dream team

Which players are a must for your team?

Ronaldo is one of our top picks for this year’s Euro 2020 Fantasy Football League. SNS group Paul Devlin

Thibaut Courtois – goalkeeper, Belgium (€ 6m)

His Real Madrid side may not have had the best season, but the former Chelsea number one is still a must-have for your side. Belgium should sail through his group without any major problems and he has already conceded one goal. The top ranked team in the tournament also had the most goals conceded in qualifying so make sure he is your first choice.

The Tottenham Hotspur shooter is one of the deadliest strikers in the world and one of the favorites for the golden shoe of the tournament. He comes at a price, however, if his talent at scoring important goals for his country is not enough to convince you to splash the money on him, remember that he is also a penalty taker, and an expert at that, For example, the team that awarded four at the last World Cup.

How many players from Scotland are in your dream team?

Leonardo Spinazzola – Defender, Italy (€ 5.5m)

Players like Andrea Pirlo and Fabio Cannavaro are no longer there for Italy, but Roberto Mancini’s side have quietly shown with six goals and two conceded goals in their first two games that they are doing business here.

The Italians haven’t conceded a goal in their last eight games and haven’t conceded more than one since the beginning of 2018.

Romelu Lukaku – Belgium Forward (€ 11m)

The Inter Milan killer will be the key to any Belgian success. As attested above, Belgium are clear favorites to win the group and Lukaku will be the man to catapult them into the knockout stage. He’s already scored two goals, so if you haven’t already, get him in your side.

Cristiano Ronaldo – Portugal forward (€ 12m)

One game and two goals. He can be 36, cost 12 million and is in a group with Germany and France, but one of the greatest players of all time should never be written off. He’s already broken a record at the tournament and is now just four goals away from Ali Daei’s all-time record, and Cristiano loves breaking records.

Who are our top tips and bargains?

Georginio Wijnaldum – Midfielder, Holland (€ 8m)

The Dutch have perhaps the easiest group in the tournament and the recently eliminated Liverpool midfielder was one of the top scorers in the qualifying phase of the tournament with eight goals. He’s not the cheapest option, but he’s already shown his ability to score a goal or two.

Andy Robertson – defender, Scotland (€ 5.5m)

If Steve Clarke’s team is to save their Euro 2020 campaign and go where no Scottish team has been before in this tournament, then the captain will be the one to lead them. Still one of the most creative defenders at Euro 2020, with an 81% pass success rate throughout the qualifiers and 7 assists for his club Liverpool this season, Robbo has the ability to pull Scotland into the last 16 despite the odds.

Oleksandr Zinchenko – Defender, Ukraine (€ 5.5m)

Often used in midfield of his national team, Zinchenko presents a real scoring risk and with Ukraine having a solid chance of finishing second in Group C, the Premier League champion could give you more points for every goal or assist, with The City Star is listed as a star defender rather than a midfielder.

Mikel Oyarzabal – Spain Forward (€ 7.5m)

As any seasoned fantasy football player knows, if you are spending a lot on a striker, then your second choice must fall into the “Inexpensive” category. Real Sociedad striker Oyarzabal certainly fits into this form as he entered the tournament after a season in which he scored 11 goals and eight assists for his club team.

Leon Goretzka – midfielder, Germany (€ 6.5m)

He missed the opening game against France due to an injury, but has a good chance of returning for the next two games in Germany.

They may have lost their prelude, but it’s very rare for a German squad to fight on the world stage. Bayern Munich midfielder Goretzka is second to star player Serge Gnabry when it comes to goals in qualifying, but is 3 million euros cheaper. Bargain.
