FORWARDS

Robert Lewandowski, FCB v. AEK (€27): Despite scoring in two of three Champions League matches this season, Lewandowski has been a bit disappointing given he's usually one of the most expensive players on his slates. That being said, he was still strong in Bayern's match away to AEK two weeks ago, scoring one goal on four shots, including three on target, and he comes in with the highest anytime goal scorer odds on the slate while Bayern have the highest implied goal total. There are plenty of high upside forwards available, but it will be tough to fade Lewandowski given his solid play of late (three goals on 20 shots and two assists on five chances created in his past four games) and weak opponent. Given the overwhelming odds, I also wouldn't hesitate to at least consider Thomas Muller at €18.

Gabriel Jesus, MCI v. SDK (€20): Jesus has found regular playing time tough to come by during Premier League play, but he's started two of three Champions League matches and could again get the call Wednesday, which could allow Sergio Aguero (€28) to get a slight rest ahead of Sunday's Manchester derby.
