  • @deano The French League starts on the 23rd August as well



  • So who do we think some of the stand out players are for these run of fixture's?

    Diogo Jota has been very average in the premier league since it's return but has been prolific in the Europa campaign. I can see Wolves going all the way to the final and Jota being the standout player for them.



  • Utd look to have the easiest path but initially I like Demirbay to enjoy himself vs Rangers. Of course Bayern stand out as being nailed on to progress, so are the safe bet at this stage. I suppose that makes Kimmich look like a great shout for multiple gold day divs rounded off by a very probable TOTM inclusion



  • Had to finally dip into Messi. If Barca win the CL (big if with a tough draw) could easily rack up £1 in Divs in just one month



  • @MickTurbo I wouldn't be so sure about Bayer L , they had a pretty poor end to the season and Rangers will be already have been back in competitive football.

    I think they will probably go through but think it will be a draw or Rangers will beat them by the odd goal.

    On his day Jota is unstoppable, he has fits and starts across the season and isn't consistent unfortunately, however he is still only 22/23. All of our European performances bar Braga (H) have been very good. Raul is another one worth looking at for IPDs as he is guarenteed to start each game with Jota/Neto/Podence and Adama vying for the 2 positions around him.

    I'd also look at Boly, he's one of the first names on the teamsheet and a threat from corners. Can be picked up for around 30-35p at the moment if you're patient - one goal would get you a 33% return.
