UCL DFS DraftKings & FanDuel Fantasy Soccer Lineups

**All Odds from BetMGM**

Chelsea (+105) vs. Real Madrid (+275), over/under 2.5

Villareal (+475) vs. Bayern Munich (-189), over/under 2.5

Forwards/ Midfielders

Robert Lewandowski (DraftKings: $10,500, FanDuel $22)

Kingsley Coman (DraftKings: $8,300, FanDuel $18)

Bayern Munich travels to take on Villareal. Bayern has posted four-plus goals in four of their previous seven matches and has yet to be shut out in their previous 20 outings. Munich average 2.68 expected goals and 7.93 shots on target per match in the Bundesliga. Villareal has an average defense, allowing 1.17 expected goals. Bayern will be a tough matchup, and the barrage of offensive output makes it the top target on a two-game affair.

The leader upfront is Robert Lewandowski, who sits atop the Bundesliga in shots with 4.93 and goals with 1.16 per match. He offers brace upside every time on the pitch, and the sub-$11,000 salary is too cheap. His running mates range from Leroy Sane to Thomas Muller. Muller accounts for 28% of the club’s scoring via a heavy lean to the assist department. The cheapest attacking option for Bayern is Serge Gnarby, who is second on the team sheet in goals and averages 2.99 shots per match. His sub-$7,000 price will send his ownership through the roof in all formats given the heavily favored tag of Bayern Munich.

The GPP play of interest is Kingsley Coman. He is cheaper than Sane and Muller by a slight margin and hits 3.26 shots and 5.66 crosses per match without the presence on the set shares. On FanDuel Sane and Muller are preferred options to Coman with over four shots apiece per match and similar goal contribution upside. On DraftKings Coman’s open-play volume on the wing creates a floor against what should be a compacted defensive box.

Karim Benzema (DraftKings: $9,900, FanDuel $19)

Kai Havertz (DraftKings: $7,400, FanDuel $17)

The ownership will flow all over Bayern, and for good reason. The difference maker will be which team comes out on top in the battle between Chelsea and Real Madrid. The odds slightly favor the home side in Chelsea, which eliminated the La Liga leaders in last season’s Champions League. Both clubs sport strong defenses of under 1.17 expected goals allowed per match. Chelsea is a stronger front at home than Madrid is on the road. The cash plays would point to set piece taker Mason Mount, dependent on Hakim Ziyech not see the starting rotation.

The goal-hunting option is Kai Havertz and his recent form of goals in every other match. Any goal contribution would be enough to pay his salary, whereas Mount and Ziyech would need it to hit 1.5x value despite the floor metrics. Mount leads the club in scoring and is even with Havertz in shots with 2.55 per match. They work well together and fit with Bayern’s big players in a full goal-hunting build.

Real Madrid has a number of underpriced pieces, from the goal-hunting option of Vinicius Junior to Luka Modric, who builds a floor on won tackles/interceptions and over three created scoring chances per match. The pay-up spot is Karim Benzema. He leads La Liga in scoring and shot volume at 3.82 per match. Benzema is not in a favorable matchup, and he needs a goal to pay off the massive price. He is strictly a GPP play. Vinicius Junior leads the club in scoring chances created (5.46 per match) and posts 2.66 shots per match. He serves the one-off role in GPPs for salary relief to fit the full Bayern onslaught play.

Other Options: Jorginho (DraftKings: $5,000, FanDuel $14), Daniel Parejo (DraftKings: $6,500, FanDuel $12), Arnaut Danjuma (DraftKings: $6,800, FanDuel $16), Toni Kroos (DraftKings: $5,400, FanDuel $15), Christian Pulisic (DraftKings: $7,000, FanDuel $16)

Defenders

Reece James (DraftKings: $6,100, FanDuel $15)

Chelsea wingback Reece James looks to return for this critical home match. James plays the attacking role well with 1.7 shots per match and 4.07 crosses in open play. His 3.84 scoring chances created per match lead the team. His drawn fouls of just under two per match round out the floor, and his ownership will make him a cash option with goal contribution upside.

The one-off options for salary relief can be found with the defenders of Real Madrid. Ferland Mendy is too cheap. He can push up the wing alongside Vinicius Junior and create chances and crosses from open play. His drawn fouls and defensive metrics are not eye catching but should do enough to pay off the $3,000 price.

Other Options: Lucas Hernandez (DraftKings: $3,100, FanDuel $10), Benjamin Pavard (DraftKings: $4,200, FanDuel $12), Juan Foyth (DraftKings: $2,700, FanDuel $9)
