Euro DFS Picks: Forwards/Midfielders
Dries Mertens (DraftKings $8,600, FanDuel $18)
Romelu Lukaku (DraftKings $9,900, FanDuel $21)
The final match of Saturday features Belgium hosting Russia. The odds seem to be influenced by the speculation that Kevin De Bruyne will miss the match, as said by the Belgium manager. With this talent filled first ranked club I still like them in this spot. Dries Mertens seems likely to handle the sets in De Bruyne absence and he comes at a near $2,000 discount. In his six full-match runs, Mertens has scored twice but contributed in five scoring chances. He sits third on the team in shot volume with an expected up tick form four per match without De Bruyne. The added responsibilities and open play body of work make him a core play given the absence of De Bruyne.
Romelu Lukaku comes with the highest ask among the forwards. He takes on a Russia club that is coming in to this match allowing one or fewer goals in one of their last six matches. Of note was impressive performances against Slovakia and Poland. The advantage for Lukaku is the last two meetings against Russia, Belgium posted three and four goals respectively. Lukaku played in one of those matches and contributed on three of the four goals. Russia’s defense leaked eight on target chances, two to Lukaku. Eden Hazard scored twice and is also set to miss this match. Lukaku will control PK sets and have license to fire away on a Russia side that is allowing 8.83 shots per competitive match in recent form, San Marino aside.
