Yahoo DFS Soccer: Tuesday UCL Picks

MATCHES (EDT)

FORWARDS

Mohamed Salah, LIV v. GNK (€29): Salah boasts the highest anytime goalscorer odds on the slate, and he's up against the same Genk side that he topped 17 points against with a goal and an assist just two weeks ago. As long as there are no setbacks with his lingering ankle injury, Salah will look to astonish the home crowd with one of his nostalgic performances.

Willian, CHE v. AJA (€20): Despite managing just two points at Ajax in their recent encounter, Willian typically comes with a reliable floor thanks to his involvement across multiple categories. Sticking with the Chelsea camp, Callum Hudson-Odoi's skill-set has been on display enough recently to deem him a fine value play at just €12 if he manages to start.

Arkadiusz Milik, NAP v. RBS (€10): It was Dries Mertens (€27) who delivered a chunky 30-point performance when Napoli won 3-2 at Salzburg, but it's Milik who's scored in four consecutive appearances. He holds the best scoring odds after the Liverpool triumvirate, and at minimum-price, he's well worth looking for when starting lineups drop.

MIDFIELDERS

Christian Pulisic, CHE v. AJA (€24): Pulisic feels a bit like chasing goals here, but there's no denying that he's been in the zone lately with four goals across his last two outings. As long as he stays in the starting XI, he'll look to build on his splendid run of form at home versus Ajax in a game that is expected to have fireworks.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, LIV v. GNK (€16): Ox turned up with a brace in a rare start at Genk just two weeks ago. He also served up four corner kicks, making him a fine value to target at home in the same matchup if manager Jurgen Klopp is receptive to giving him another start.

Dani Parejo, VAL v. LIL (€16): Parejo comes into Tuesday's clash with three goals and an assist across his last five La Liga appearances, highlighting his ability to get involved on the attacking end. He has the ability to slink through the opposition to make things happen, and he has set piece upside to boot.

DEFENDERS

Trent Alexander-Arnold, LIV v. GNK (€21): Alexander-Arnold's price continues to rise, but rightfully so as he continues to supply the fantasy goods. He's sent in a mountain of crosses over his last several games, and as one of few defenders who stands over a large share of their team's set pieces, he comes with big upside any time he takes the pitch.

Marcos Alonso, CHE v. AJA (€17): Alonso was given a breather over the weekend, meaning he should be fresh for Tuesday's UCL clash with Ajax. He's averaging nearly nine points per game across three Champions League appearances this season, and he packs some attacking punch while occupying one of the defensive slots.

Jose Gaya, VAL v. LIL (€13): Gaya topped eight points at Chelsea in his only UCL appearance of the season, and while his starts have been spotty, he has a good chance to make the XI at home against Lille. The Spaniard is no stranger to getting up and down the left channel to supply crosses on occasion, and he could supply a nice value for just €13.

GOALKEEPER

Alisson Becker, LIV v. GNK (€18): Alisson has conceded exactly one goal in each of his last four starts, and while that doesn't necessarily instill confidence to pay all the way up at the position, he comes with the best clean sheet odds of any goalkeeper on the board. Liverpool are the biggest favorite on the slate, and after winning 4-1 away two weeks ago, he seems like a safe bet to make a run at the win and clean sheet bonus to justify paying up for.
