Read Scoops is committed to bringing to you the latest fantasy previews, be it cricket or football. Tonight of course is going to be one for all those fantasy football fans, those who love the game and love the 2018/19 Champions League, where a few games are left to be played in the 2nd Leg of the Round of 16.
Last week, we saw Manchester United making a stunning comeback to beat PSG and now, it’s the turn of their rivals, Manchester City, who face off against Schalke 04, the former coming into this game with a 3-2 aggregate lead. They play at the Etihad Stadium and you can get our complete fantasy preview for this game here…
- Tournament: 2018/19 UEFA Champions League – Round of 16, 2nd Leg
- Date: 13th March 2019, 1:30am IST
- Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester
- Capacity: 55,000+
Form (recent first)
- Manchester City: W W D W W W W W L W
- Schalke 04: L L L L D L W L D W
Clearly, City start as favourites for this contest, especially since they have a 1 goal blanket after that stunning comeback to win 3-2 in Germany. However, anything can happen in football and if Schalke can repeat two goals here, we could be in for a game. Fantasy league players remember that Nicolas Otamendi is suspended for this game, having received a red card in the reverse fixture..
Some more players in the injury list who you shouldn’t be considering in your side include Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, Benjamin Mendy and Claudio Bravo. In place of Otamendi, we would suggest picking John Stones, who is now back from injury. Previous game goal scorers Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling are must haves once again in the 2nd Leg.
As for the away team, Alessandro Schopf, Omar Mascarell and Daniel Caligiuri are out with injuries. For this game, I’d pick more mid-fielders from Schalke as I expect Man City to score quite a few goals and we don’t want too many Schalke defenders, as it will lead to a lot of negative points.
Schalke haven’t won a single of their last 6 games against English clubs and it could only get worse for them tonight. Don’t forget to pick Nabil Bentaleb, who scored twice in the last game, even though they were both penalties. Sane will be playing against his former club and Schalke defenders will try to best to not let him get past their defenses.
My fantasy eleven:
Champions League Betting?
Manchester City start as overwhelming favourites for this encounter, and you may not get a lot of value on them. However, there are some good odds on offer, especially for 3.5+ goals. The odds being offered by BetWinner are very tempting, so why not place a bet while watching the game? See here:
