MATCHES (EST)

FORWARDS

Erling Haaland, BVB vs. SEV (€32): Haaland has been simply majestic around the goal of late, bagging a brace in three of his last four outings, and he's contributed at least a goal or an assist in six straight. He went ballistic in the first leg, scoring twice and assisting on the other in a 3-2 win over Sevilla. There are sure to be fireworks in the second leg and that only means one thing: more crackers from Haaland.

Cristiano Ronaldo, JUV vs. POR (€30): Whispers of being overrated were making their way around social media after Ronaldo managed just one shot in a wretched performance in a 2-1 loss to Porto in the first leg. He responded with 11 shots and a brace the following game, and he's hammered off at least seven shots in three straight starts since that loss. There's no doubt he'll be firing at will with Juventus in a must-win spot, and being caught without Ronaldo in a do-or-die matchup is ill-advised.

Alvaro Morata, JUV vs. POR (€22): Juventus attackers are going to be a popular stack considering the scenario and what's at stake, and Morata is in fine form with three goals and an assist over his last two outings. Keep an eye out for any values that emerge elsewhere, because you don't need to magnify the forward pool to see that these are easily the top three options who could be the difference in cashing or not.

MIDFIELDERS

Sergio Oliveira, POR at JUV (€28): Oliveira didn't make a mark on the score-sheet in the first leg win over Juventus, but he did enough to top nine points, and he's averaging 10 fantasy points per game throughout Champions League play. Porto are sure to be under siege throughout the match, but Oliveira possesses the ability to sting like a jellyfish, and if he's on his game he could be the one that puts Juve to bed.

Lucas Ocampos, SEV at BVB (€16): Ocampos recently returned from an ankle injury that kept him off the field for a month. His return comes at just the right time with Sevilla in need of goals after losing the first leg 3-2. Prior to the injury, he added four goals and four assists in La Liga action, and his price is within reason for the goal-scoring upside he brings to the table in a must-win match.

Emre Can, BVB vs. SEV (€10): Can isn't an attractive option considering he's mostly been deployed as a center-back of late. He's mostly here to serve as a reminder to watch starting lineups for any potential values that emerge. With plenty of heavy artillery to squeeze in on a two-gamer, we're going to need to fit in a couple of bargain picks and just hope they stick like adhesive.

DEFENDERS

Juan Cuadrado, JUV vs. POR (€20): Cuadrado returned from a thigh injury over the weekend, and he looks good to go for Tuesday's UCL clash. His return is a welcome sight for Juventus in a must-win game, as he has five assists in five Champions League appearances this season, including one in three straight. Simply put, his attacking returns have been wicked in UCL play, and with Juventus seeking out goals from the opening whistle, he's sure to be active going forward.

Alex Sandro, JUV vs. POR (€22): Look, there are a lot of Juventus players listed here. The fact is that their backs are against the wall, and on a two-game slate a viable strategy is to take a stand on the biggest favorite and load up as much firepower as possible. It's obviously agonizing if it doesn't pan out but incredibly rewarding when all goes as planned. If Sandro is back in his preferred left-back role, he fits the bill of a defender fully capable of making an impact on the score-sheet. If Sandro is too much to pay up for with all of the other big spends on the board, keep an eye out for a minimum-priced Giorgio Chiellini (€10) when starting lineups are announced.

 Jesus Navas, SEV at BVB (€18): Navas topped eight points in the first leg loss without a goal or an assist. He's a two-way threat who can really make an impact in a game of this stature, and with Sevilla chasing the series he's sure to be flapping up and down the flank like a pancake. Consider Navas a strong option to fill out your defense if the funds are available.

GOALKEEPER

Wojciech Szczesny, JUV vs. POR (€16): Szczesny has the best shutout odds of any goalkeeper on the slate, and he comes without the swanky price that the top options typically have. Juventus are desperate for a result to advance to the quarterfinals, and if they can pull it off, Szczesny is sure to play a vital role in making it happen.
