Yahoo DFS Soccer: Wednesday UCL Picks

This article is part of our Yahoo DFS Soccer series.

MATCHES (EDT)

FORWARDS

Mohamed Salah, LIV v. ATM (€28): All Liverpool attackers are in play with the Reds down 1-0 heading into the second leg. Salah gets the nod with the added set piece and penalty kick appeal. Oh yeah, and he's back at home, where he's scored in five straight games.

Neymar, PSG v. BVB (€28): Look for Neymar's attacking guile to be on full display with Paris Saint-Germain chasing a one-goal deficit. He has two goals and two assists in his only two Champions League starts, and it would be no surprise to see him deliver a monster point haul Wednesday.

Edinson Cavani, PSG v. BVB (€16): Cavani is the type of player who could easily emerge with a GPP-winning performance on a short slate like this. He actually has similar anytime goal scorer odds as Salah, and his goal-scoring exploits could come in handy with PSG in a must-win spot.

MIDFIELDERS

Angel Di Maria, PSG v. BVB (€25): Di Maria continues to provide stellar service for PSG's daunting attack, and with their backs against the wall, there's a good chance he gets on the score-sheet. He has two goals and three assists through six UCL appearances this campaign, and could certainly add to that in the game with the highest implied goal total.

Jadon Sancho, BVB at PSG (€23): Sancho has 16 goals and 17 assists in the Bundesliga and Champions League this season, and his fantasy appeal is boosted by his share of Dortmund's set pieces. With the German side likely having to match PSG's attack to have a shot at advancing, look for Sancho to continue to make things happen in the attack.

Julian Draxler, PSG v. BVB (€10): Draxler is one to keep an eye out for when starting XI's drop. If he happens to crack the lineup, he would be a good value play at minimum price. He has an assist in each of his last two starts, and with PSG pressing to flip the series, he could turn up on the score-sheet again if given the opportunity.

DEFENDERS

Achraf Hakimi, BVB at PSG (€20): Hakimi is a handful going forward, as evidenced by his four goals in the Champions League this season. He's fresh off a goal in Bundesliga play, and his goal-scoring ability out of the back makes him one of the most attractive defender options with Dortmund vying for a spot in the quarter-finals.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, LIV v. ATM (€19): Alexander-Arnold has just one assist through six Champions League matches, but he continues to lump crosses in at a high rate. With Liverpool playing catch-up from the get-go, there's little reason to think he doesn't continue to play a pivotal role on set pieces and in open play attacking down the right channel.

Andrew Robertson, LIV v. ATM (€17): Robertson looks set to return to the lineup after getting a breather in Premier League play this past Saturday. It would be no surprise to see him get involved going forward with the Reds pushing to advance, and clean sheet points are also a good possibility with Liverpool having the highest shutout odds on the slate by a large margin.

GOALKEEPER

Adrian, LIV v. ATM (€14): Adrian is next in line with usual starter Allison Becker out with a hip injury, and he comes at a significant discount compared to the other projected starting goalkeepers. Considering Liverpool have the highest clean sheet odds on the slate, it just makes sense to plug Adrian in and save at the position.
