I hope you enjoyed Part One previewing Euro 2020 Groups A-C, here's the second half. For this contest, you get a wildcard after the group stages so you only need to focus on these three Gameweeks. I will provide an overview once the Group Stages have ended. You just need to focus on gaining as many points as possible for the three Gameweeks. FanTeam have made some tweaks to their scoring matrix, which are detailed below:

FanTeam - Scoring Matrix

Euro 2020 FanTeam Key Changes

  • Impact points have reduced from 1.0 to 0.3 points. This means there’s less emphasis on selecting players from the strongest teams and will lead to a more balanced squad approach where talisman from the weaker teams are viable options like in FPL.
  • Shots on goals has been included (shots on goal that result in an assist / goal don’t count towards this). I wouldn’t worry too much about this addition, although it looks like it could result in a lot of points, in reality a player rarely records more than two shots on target in a game. I would use it as a tie breaker if you’re deciding between two players.

FanTeam Euro 2020 – Rules

fanteam euros advice The rules are detailed above, you just need to pay special attention to the following:
  • There’s no Safety Net – Safety Net is a FanTeam option available in some of their daily games that automatically replaces any players that don’t start with an equivalently priced alternative from the same team. In this tournament you can utilise a full squad of 15 players and will have substitutes to call upon if required. Like you would in similar games such as their season long Premier League game or FPL.
  • Maximum players from the same team – you can have up to three players from the same side until the Quarter Finals, then the quota increases to four and then to seven for the final stage.
  • Price Rises – just like in the season long game, the player prices can rise or fall dependent on demand and you get the full sell value and not 50% like in FPL. Please see our FanTeam Beginner's Guide for more details on this. Price rises will be frozen during the wildcard periods to avoid wild fluctuations.
  • Gameweek Deadline – after the first week the deadline will be 90 minutes prior to the first kick off so that players in different time zones are not disadvantaged.
  • Wildcard – this will be available after the group stages and it must be used prior to the start of the round of 16.
  • Transfers – you can only ever roll one free transfer (FT). One FT will be available after each group game, then three will be awarded prior to the Quarter Finals and Semi Finals (so if you roll you can have a maximum of four transfers for the Semi Finals). No further transfers will be allowed after the Semi Finals, but you can adjust your formation and captains.
Don't forget to read our Beginner's Guide to FanTeam for a detailed guide to the platform and games.

FanTeam Euro 2020 - Groups D to F

The first thing I want to highlight is that England, Spain, Hungary (apart from their last game) and Germany all play their fixtures at home. In the Premier League playing at home is a small advantage, but on the International stage it’s huge.

Euro 2020 Group D Tips:

Croatia

Euro Qualification - P8: W5 | D2 | L1 | GF17 | GA7 This was against  Wales, Slovakia, Hungary and Azerbaijan. That's not a tough group, although admittedly four of them have qualified for the Euros. They lost all but one of their Nations League games against Portugal, Sweden and France. They conceded 16 (five from set pieces) and didn't keep a single clean sheet (CS). Who are the best picks? Perišić (8.0M) FD – takes the direct free kicks (Modric has the penalties) and was the joint top scorer during the qualifiers with the man below. Vlašić (7.5M) MF – he scored three in six during European qualifying, then two goals and an assist during the Nations League. He also recorded 11 goals and five assists in the Russian League last season. => I would steer clear of this team, their best player takes up a valuable forward slot. They're not particulalry good defensively or in attack.

Czech Republic

Euro Qualification - P8: W5 | L3 | GF13 |  GA11 This was against England, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Montenegro. So who came out on top when England played them? They managed to beat England 2-1 at home, but we beat them 5-0 at our home where we will be playing them again. Since qualification they topped their Nations League group, however they lost twice to Scotland. For the World Cup qualifiers they drew 1-1 with Belgium and narrowly lost to Wales 1-0. Ultimately, they don't score or concede many.   Who are the best picks? Soucek (5.0M) MF – similar to how he plays for West Ham, he has a knack of making those deep runs into the box and getting on the end of things. He scored a hat-trick against Estonia and is their top scorer this season with four. His West Ham team mate Coufal (5.0M) offers the most attacking threat out of the defenders, but 5.0M could be too much for a Czech defender in this group. => Look here for some budget enablers, but that's about it

Scotland

Euro Qualification - P10: W5 | L5 | GF16 | GA19 This was against Belgium, Russia, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and San Marino. In their games against Belgium and Russia they conceded 12 and scored one. They are whipping boys. However, they've improved this year with a 2-2 draw with Austria and a 1-1 draw with Israel. Who are the best picks? McGinn (4.5M) – he’s a decent enabler. During the qualifers he scored seven in eight. => Look here for some budget enablers, but that's about it. I wouldn't invest in their Premier League defenders.

England

Euro Qualification - P8: W7 | L1 | GF37 | GA6 They played against Czech Republic, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Montenegro. However, since then they only came third in the Nations League (with Belgium, Denmark and Iceland). Following that they switched to a four man defence to utilise their attacking players and their form has improved dramatically. Unfortunately, with Maguire (6.5M) a doubt, they may have to revert to a back five. Who are the best picks? Kane (13.5M) FD – he's the only attacker you know is nailed. He's on penalties, he scored two hat tricks during qualifying (racking up 12 goals) and he's added assists to his game now. Stones (6.0M) DF –is a boring pick, but in the absence of Maguire he's the cheapest nailed option. As mentioned above, Croatia conceded five from set pieces during the qualifiers so he could offer some aerial threat. Foden (9.0) MF - is a wildcard, as he isn't nailed and is expensive. He's worth keeping an eye on though, as he's one of our most explosive players. => Kane is a golden boot contendor, we're likely to get a few CS and keep your eye on whichever midfielders play wide of Kane.

FanTeam Euro 2020 - Group D Prediction

Surely it's coming home, isn't it? A double up looks like a viable option.

Euro 2020 Group E Tips:

Poland

Euro Qualification - P10: W8 | D1 | L1 | GF18 Their group contained Austria, North Macedonia, Slovenia, Israel and Latvia. Their record was good against the two other Euro qualifiers. In the Nations League they drew and lost to Italy and were beaten by the Netherlands twice. They can defend and have a world class striker. Who are the best picks? Lewandowski (9.0M) FD – non shocker. His price is very tempting and not much needs to be said, he's one of the deadliest strikers in Europe. He scored 41 in 29 for Bayern and he has five in six this season for Poland. Rybus (4.5M) – as mentioned above, Poland can defend (they kept seven CS during qualification and this season they've recorded a CS against Italy and Ukraine). He plays as a wing back and  he shares set-piece duties. The other wing back may slot into central defence and I prefer Rybus out of the two of them.    => A defender and their striker is worth consideration, only Spain are likely to cause major problems.

Slovakia

Euro Qualification - P8: W4 | D1 | L3 | GF13 |  GA11 They had Croatia, Wales, Hungary and Azerbaijan in their group. Wales drew and beat them. Croatia comfortably beat them twice. No other side conceded as many in that size group during the qualifiers. They followed that up by finishing bottom of their Nations League. Then their World Cup qualification started off terribly drawing against Cyprus and Malta. However, they got back on track beating Russia 2-1. Overall, they're likely to concede and unlikely to score many. => I would steer clear of this team.

Spain

Euro Qualification - P10: W8 | D2 | GF31 |  GA5 They dominated their group against Sweden, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands and Malta. In their games against Sweden the results were 3-0 at home but 1-1 away. They continued their form by winning their Nations League Group. However, things haven't been going as well this year in their World Cup qualification. They drew with Greece and had shaky performances against Georgia and Kosovo. What's even more concerning is their failure to keep CS and how they struggle to break down a low block, which they are likely to face in this group. Who are the best picks? Alba (6.5M) DF / Llorente (6.0M) – despite what I said about their defence, the games should be tight if the opposition try to frustrate them and these two offer a lot of attacking threat. Alba has the joint most assists for Spain this season plus 20 attacking returns in 49 for Barcelona. If you thought that was impressive, Llorente recorded 23, which included 12 goals. Torres (9.0M) – has five goals in his last four games for Spain and we've seen how much of an eye he has for goal when he gets a chance at Manchester City. Both the strikers are good, but it's unclear who will start. With so many decent forward options to choose from and only three slots, it's risky to go with a rotation risk. => A double up should work well in this easy group with the home advantage.

Sweden

Euro Qualification - P10: W6 | D3 | L1 | GF23 |  GA9 Their group involved Spain, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands and Malta. As mentioned above, they managed to draw against Spain when they played them at home. In their tough Nations League (against France, Croatia and Portugal) they finished rock bottom. They didn't score in half the games and conceded two or more in four out of six. They're unlikely to be able to shut Spain out. Who are the best picks? Forsberg (5.5M) – he’s their main man. He takes set pieces and has a free role. => They offer value but I would only go for one as a budget enabler.

Euro 2020 Group E Prediction:

FanTeam Euro 2020 - Group E Prediction

Load up on Spain and consider Poland.

Euro 2020 Group F Tips:

Hungary

Euro Qualification - P8: W4 | D0 | L4 | GF8 | GA11 They finished fourth (yet still made it) in a group with Croatia, Wales, Slovaka, Hungary and Azerbaijan. However, they topped their Nations League group that included Turkey and Russia. They've started World Cup qualification well, winning the easy games and drawing against Poland. They may not be the whipping boys we expect, but they will sure have their work cut out. => Avoid, this is the group of death.

Germany

Euro Qualification - P8: W7 | L1 | GF30 | GA7 Their group contained the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Belarus and Estonia. Honours were even against the Netherlands in two high scoring games. They finished second in a tough Nations League group with Spain, Ukraine and the Swiss. However, they didn't keep a single CS and Spain thumped them 6-0. I would not be put off playing attackers against this side. Who are the best picks? Gnabry (9.0M) MF - he's go 15 goals in 19 caps and was their top scorer in qualifying with eight goals in seven. However, he's a flat track bully and doesn't tend to score as much against the stronger teams whereas Muller (8.5M) FD is a big game player, however he would take up a valuable forward slot. Kroos (7.5M) MF - isn't an exciting pick, but he's a quality player that has multiple avenues to points. He's their main penalty taker and takes all the set pieces. => They're always capable of scoring, but I would avoid their defence.

Portugal

Euro Qualification - P8: W5 | D2 | L1 | GF22 They were in a group with Ukraine, Serbia, Luxembourg and Lithuania. They made hard work of qualifying but they still averaged nearly three goals per game. In their tough Nations League group, they finished second to France who they drew 0-0 with away, but lost 1-0 at home. Their form has stuttered this year in World Cup qualification with a narrow win against Azerbaijan at home (1-0), a draw against Serbia and an underwhelming 3-1 win against Luxembourg. They can trouble any team and have a lot of potential. Who are the best picks? Ronaldo (10.0M) FD – I don't think Ronaldo has ever been this type of price in a Fantasy game. Nothing needs to be said, despite him being in the twilight of his career he's an absolute stats padder and who better to face than Hungary in the first game. Jota (8.0M) FD – it's a shame he's not classified as a midfielder, as he would have found his way into a lot of teams. He's Portugal's top scorer this season and we've seen how explosive he can be in the Premier League. However, he's likely to be rotated with Felix (8.5M) FD and it's highly risky to go with rotation doubts when you only have three forward slots. Silva (8.0M) MF – what no Bruno? When you take penalties away from Bruno, he's just a mere mortal. Silva had the second highest goal involvement during qualifiers, he's cheaper than Bruno and nailed. => The attackers would be priced a lot higher if they weren't in this group. Only France may be able to shut them out. They're worth consideration.

France

Euro Qualification - P10: W8 | D1 | L1 | GF25 | GA6 The group included Turkey, Iceland, Albania, Andorra and Moldova. Only Turkey managed to halt them. Then, they topped their tough Nations League group against Portugal (who they recorded two CS against). Currently, they're top of their World Cup qualifying group, although Ukraine managed to hold them to a 1-1. France are rightly the tournament favourites and have arguably the strongest squad. Deschamps is quite conservative though, so don't expect too many high scoring games. Who are the best picks? Mbappe (13.0M) FD - is the obvious pick. He picked up six attacking returns in five during qualification and he has five in his last eight. We've seen how explosive he can be for PSG too, but he comes with a hefty price tag. Griezmann(10.5M) FD – has serious pedigree. He got the golden boot in Euro 2016 and was second in the World Cup 2018. He thrives in the big competitions and he has a free role for France where he isn't restricted by Messi. He's their joint top scorer this season with five from eleven and recorded 12 attacking returns in 10 during the qualifiers. Benzema missed a penalty in a friendly against Wales, which might put Griezmann back in contention. Pavard / Hernandez (6.5M) DFs - France have already demonstrated that they can hold out Portugal and there's no reason they can't do the same to the other two sides. There's nothing between these two attacking full backs, however if your budget is tight then Kimpembe (6.0M) DF is worth consideration. => This is a quality, but expensive side. Compromises may need to be made on defence and attack but it's worth having some exposure.

Euro 2020 Group F Prediction:

FanTeam Euro 2020 - Group F Prediction

The nature of this group means that none of the teams can really afford to rotate, as they need to maximise points against Hungary. That will add some security when selecting players from these teams, so you can focus your transfers elsewhere.

Summary

Strategy tip: you may want to consider rolling your first transfer. This is because a lot of teams may rotate heavily if they've qualified prior to the third game, it will be clear who still has something to play for and it gives more flexibility for making a big move. For that reason, it's important to ensure that your squad rotates well for the first two weeks. Choose your subs wisely. If you enjoyed the group predictions, why don't you have a go yourself?
