Yahoo DFS Soccer: Tuesday UCL Picks

Yahoo DFS Soccer: Tuesday UCL Picks

This article is part of our Yahoo DFS Soccer series.

MATCHES (EST)

FORWARDS

Robert Lewandowski, FCB at LAZ (€32): Lewandowski has found the back of the net in 11 of his last 12 appearances, and at this point, it's more surprising to see him not score a goal when he takes the field. Oddsmakers tabbed him with the highest anytime goalscoring odds, and with Bayern the biggest favorite on the slate, it's hard to imagine him not peppering the goal as usual. 

Joao Felix, ATM vs. CHE (€28): Felix eclipsed 10 points without a goal or assist in his outing over the weekend. He was firing shots at will, and with Atletico looking to start the Round of 16 off on the right foot, we can expect him to be a big part of the attacking equation. With the masses paying up for Lewandowski, Felix could go overlooked and be a difference-maker that many could overlook.

Olivier Giroud, CHE at ATM (€22): There aren't many cheap projected starters at the forward spot, but Giroud sticks out as the lowest of the bunch. He scored in his last start, and considering he doesn't figure to be popular in a difficult matchup against Atletico Madrid, he's a viable tournament option in a Chelsea stack.

MIDFIELDERS

Joshua Kimmich, FCB at LAZ (€29): Kimmich is the highest-priced midfielder on the board, and his ability to pile up points in a myriad of ways justifies paying the lofty price. He takes the majority of set pieces for the biggest favorite, and he's scored or assisted in each of his three UCL appearances.

Mason Mount, CHE at ATM (€23): Mount takes the majority of set pieces for Chelsea, and with the Blues looking to get that coveted away goal, he could be busy against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. He converted a penalty in Premier League play this past Sunday, but usual penalty taker Jorginho (€19) wasn't on the field. Regardless, the upside is there for him to get the job done across multiple avenues, and he's available at a manageable price. 

Luis Alberto, LAZ vs. FCB (€18): Alberto stands over most set pieces for Lazio, and he's relatively cheap for a No. 10. He bagged his seventh goal of the season in Serie A on Sunday, and with Lazio likely having to go blow-for-blow with Bayern's daunting attack, he's going to have to get involved if they're forced to play catchup.

DEFENDERS

Marcos Alonso, CHE at ATM (€17): Alonso has seen an uptick in usage since Thomas Tuchel took the reins at Chelsea. Over his last two starts, he's taken seven shots and created four chances, showing his upside as a defender capable of being heavily involved in the attack. It's a tough matchup, but on a two-game slate, his attacking ceiling is enough to warrant a roster spot.

Alphonso Davies, FCB at LAZ (€16): Davies is just two games removed from his first goal of the season, and while it was his first attacking contribution in 15 games, it could fuel additional output for the speedy left-back. With Bayern expected to be on the front foot, expect Davies to cause fits for Lazio as Bayern look to get off to a strong start in the Round of 16. 

Renan Lodi, ATM vs. CHE (€12): Lodi whipped in 15 crosses (four accurate) and created four chances in a spot start for the injured Yannick Carrasco this past weekend. With Carrasco ruled out versus Chelsea, there's a chance Lodi keeps his starting spot on the left flank. He took a sizable share of set pieces and could emerge as one of the top values on the board – just be sure to monitor starting lineups before finalizing your squad.

GOALKEEPER

Jan Oblak, ATM vs. CHE (€12): Oblak and Pepe Reina are the cheapest goalkeepers on the slate, coming at a healthy savings compared to the highest-priced Manuel Neuer (€22). With Bayern Munich more likely to explode for multiple goals, I'm more inclined to lock the savings in with Oblak. Chelsea are still finding their footing under Tuchel and a good result in the first leg is well within reason for the La Liga leaders.
