Fantasy Round 2 preview: Transfers, captains & boosts

Players to bring in

Ilya Kutepov (€4.5m) – Very cheap for a starting defender, the 24-year-old centre-back gave an assured performance against Saudi Arabia. Next up for Russia are Egypt and Uruguay, who scored only one goal between them in their opening outings.

Nacho (€5.5m) – The 28-year-old only got his chance due to Dani Carvajal’s injury, but took it with a spectacular goal in the 3-3 draw with Portugal and, therefore, should star against IR Iran, who Spain will expect a clean sheet against. Jordi Alba and Sergio Ramos cost €1m more than Nacho.

Denis Cheryshev (€5.5m) – The former Real Madrid winger came on for the injured Alan Dzagoev midway through the first half, and responded with a brilliant brace against Saudi Arabia. Dzagoev has been ruled out of the remainder of the group stage, so Cheryshev should be unleashed upon Egypt and Uruguay.

Thomas Muller (€9.5m) – Germany’s plan was likely to wrap up first place in Group F in their first two games and rest key players in their final game. After a shock 1-0 defeat by Mexico, however, Joachim Low’s defending champions will have to go all out for goals against Sweden and Korea Republic. Muller has a habit of getting them in the World Cup.

Harry Kane (€11m) – The 24-year-old bagged a brace against Tunisia. England will be trying desperately to thrash Panama, whom Belgium beat 3-0, knowing the race to win Group G could go down to goal difference.

Cristiano Ronaldo (€12m) – Lionel Messi and Neymar were consequentially more popular choices than the Portugal No7 in Round 1, presumably as Fantasy coaches felt the latter would be stymied by defensive specialists Spain. Well, you saw what he did against David de Gea, Sergio Ramos and Co. What do you think The Best FIFA Men’s Player holder, fuelled by his insatiable thirst for goals, will do against Morocco and IR Iran?
