Yahoo DFS Soccer: Tuesday UCL Picks

Yahoo DFS Soccer: Tuesday UCL Picks

This article is part of our Yahoo DFS Soccer series.

MATCHES (EST)

FORWARDS

Neymar, PSG at BVB (€29): Neymar is trending in the right direction to return to the starting lineup after missing the last two weeks with a rib injury. The Brazilian was in scintillating form prior to the injury, with 10 goals and eight assists across his last nine appearances. Expect him to pick up right where he left off in a game that is expected to see multiple goals.

Erling Haaland, BVB v. PSG (€28): Haaland bagged eight goals in six UCL group stage games, and the kid simply can't stop scoring. The Bundesliga Player of the Month will look to keep it rolling against a PSG side that leaked four goals in domestic play over the weekend.

Alvaro Morata, ATM v. LIV (€18): Morata hasn't done much in his last five appearances, but the fact remains that he's Atletico's leading scorer with seven goals on the season. With Liverpool expected to push for an away goal, there's reason to think Morata will see opportunities come his way as Atletico look to keep within striking distance.

MIDFIELDERS

Angel Di Maria, PSG at BVB (€27): Di Maria continues to pull the strings for PSG, with two goals and four assists over his last four outings. With PSG's attack firing on all cylinders, Di Maria is in prime position to supply the goods once more in a juicy matchup at Borussia Dortmund.

Jadon Sancho, BVB v. PSG (€22): Sancho comes into this one sizzling hot, with 12 goals and 10 assists across his last 15 games. He's contributing across multiple attacking categories, and with Tuesday's clash with PSG pegged as the highest total on the board, look for the 19-year-old English sensation to continue to shine.

Jordan Henderson, LIV at ATM (€18): Henderson has been phenomenal of late, with two goals and three assists in his last four Premier League matches. He continues to get involved more and more in the attack, which bodes well with Liverpool aiming to get a good away result to take back to Anfield for the second leg.

DEFENDERS

Achraf Hakimi, BVB v. PSG (€22): Hakimi supplied a pair of assists in Friday's Bundesliga win over Frankfurt, highlighting his ability to get involved going forward. He logged four goals across six UCL group stage games, proving his worth as the highest priced defender on the slate in a game that could feature goals.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, LIV at ATM (€18): Alexander-Arnold is surprisingly not the highest priced defender on the board. In fact, he's not even among the top three, making him a good value play on a two-game slate.

Stefan Savic, ATM v LIV (€14): Savic checks in as the cheapest projected starting defender on the slate, making him a viable option to help squeeze in the heavy artillery elsewhere. He turned up with a goal in the group stage, and while that's something that can't always be expected, there's always a chance the big 6-foot-2 center-back gets involved on set pieces.

GOALKEEPER

Jan Oblak, ATM v. LIV (€17): It's not much, but Oblak provides a little bit of savings as the cheapest goalkeeper of the four projected starters. It's a tall task to keep Liverpool's dynamic attack off the score-sheet, but he's kept it clean in four of his last five at home and Atletico will look to bink a good result in the first leg to have a shot of advancing to the quarterfinals.
