Yahoo DFS Soccer: Wednesday's UCL Picks

Yahoo DFS Soccer: Wednesday's UCL Picks

This article is part of our Yahoo DFS Soccer series.

MATCHES (EDT)

FORWARDS

Erling Haaland, BVB vs. ZNT (€31): Haaland just continues to deliver goals, and he has the highest anytime goalscorer odds of any player on the slate. He has six goals and two assists through the first six games of the season, and he should see multiple opportunities to add to that haul in a favorable home matchup with Zenit.

Neymar, PSG at IBB (€28): Neymar is a true stat-sheet stuffer who can deliver a serviceable fantasy score even without a goal or assist. He has two goals and three assists over his last three outings to go along with 16 shots (six on goal), 15 crosses and 12 chances created. Oh yeah, and he's been fouled 16 times over that span. Even on the road, PSG are the biggest favorite on the board versus Istanbul Basaksehir, so we'll want as much exposure to their attack as possible.

Paulo Dybala, JUV vs. BAR (€19): With multiple high-priced forwards worth making way for, we may not need to seek out value at the position. Dybala has a tough matchup against Barcelona, but with Cristiano Ronaldo still battling COVID, he could be forced to shoulder more of the attacking load. He came up empty-handed Sunday despite firing off an eye-popping nine shots, and he still hit 14 points despite being shutout.

MIDFIELDERS

Angel Di Maria, PSG at IBB (€26): Di Maria continues to serve his Ligue 1 suspension, so he comes into Wednesday's clash with fresh legs. He managed nine points to kick off the UCL group stage campaign despite what most would consider a quiet performance by his standards, and similar to Neymar, he's fully capable of supplying a good return without getting on the score-sheet.

Christopher Nkunku, RBL at MUN (€15): Nkunku's price is creeping up, but he still jumps out as an obvious value given his role in the Leipzig attack. He's topped double-digit points in three of his last four appearances, and even in a tough matchup at Manchester United, he should see ample opportunities to contribute from set pieces and open play.

Thorgan Hazard,  BVB vs. ZNT (€10): Hazard has yet to start this season, but he did return from a hamstring injury to play 13 minutes off the bench Saturday. He had seven goals and 15 assists in 2019, making him a strong value with Dortmund heavily favored. While he may not be fit for a full 90 minutes, he's worth a punt at minimum price if he gets the nod. 

DEFENDERS

Angelino, RBL at MUN (€20): Angelino failed to score for the first time in four games Saturday and still managed to top 12 points through a collection of shots, crosses and chances created. He continues to play a major role in the attack as the primary set-piece taker, and it's not out of the question that he starts in a more advanced role. In what should be a competitive match at Manchester United, look for the former MLS player to continue to play a big role on both ends of the field.

Raphael Guerreiro, BVB vs. ZNT (€16): Guerriero had an assist in his last Bundesliga outing, taking three shots and sending in seven crosses. Similar to Angelino, he has a role on set pieces and plays a big part going forward, making him a prime target for both attacking and defensive points.

Alessandro Florenzi, PSG at IBB (€10): Florenzi has been a live-wire going forward since joining PSG this summer. He's scored two goals over six appearances, and in a matchup where PSG are heavily favored, paying minimum price is a no brainer to help spend up elsewhere.

GOALKEEPER

Bono, SEV vs. REN (€16): Bono kept Chelsea off the score-sheet in his UCL group stage opener, and now he gets an easier matchup at home against a Rennes side that is winless in their last three.
