UCL Fantasy Matchday 5 Limitless tips from Kevin who finished 21st overall last season.
In this UCL Fantasy article, Kevin will review his Limitless Wildcard Matchday 5 team and the substitutions he will make for Day 2.
Limitless Chip Strategy (or lack thereof…)
Unfortunately, injuries forced me into my Limitless in Matchday 5. My team was in good shape heading into the International Break and the fixtures were favourable for my players.
The main issue going into Matchday 5 was that I had 5 players out which triggered my Limitless.
Having played my Wildcard in Matchday 2, the reverse fixtures aligned well for Matchday 5. However, having that many fires to put out on the injury front made it too difficult to save for Matchday 6.
Day 1 – UCL Fantasy Matchday 5 Limitless Team Review
Another mixed start to a Matchday for my team, which is obviously a little disappointing having played my Limitless Wildcard.
The Chelsea double up in defense was a smart decision even though they were playing Juventus. Edouard Mendy (€6.2m) and Ben Chilwell (€5.5m) both earned six points each.
Choosing Ben Chilwell (€5.5m) over Reece James (€5.3m) was the wrong decision though with James finishing on 14 points.
Davide Zappacosta (€4.3m) was very disappointing with one point and being subbed off at half time. This didn’t seem to help Atalanta as they drew 3-3 with Young Boys.
Even on the Limitless, my midfield continues to be the main disappointment in my team.
Leroy Sane (€9.2m) with a good fixture and Arnaut Danjuma (€6.4m) playing out of position striker both finished on two points.
Mario Pasalic (€7.7m) was able to pick up assist finishing on five points but I was expecting more with a matchup against Young Boys.
Robert Lewandowski (€11.8m) was my captain heading into Day 1 and scored an amazing goal.
It feels harsh to say but with his Champions League pedigree, and playing against Dynamo Kyiv, I was expecting more.
Day 2 – Substitutes
- Leroy Sane (€9.2m) to Eder Militao (€5.5m) – Sane finished with two points and Militao has a good chance at a clean sheet with Real Madrid playing Sheriff.
- Arnaut Danjuma (€6.4m) to Noussair Mazraoui (€4.9m) – Similar to my first substitution, Danjuma finished with two points. Mazraoui also has a good chance of a clean sheet with Ajax playing Beşiktaş (he is also an offensive wingback).
- Davide Zappacosta (€4.3m) to Mohamed Salah (€10.7m) – There is a lot of chatter about Liverpool benching some of their starters as they have first place wrapped up in Group B. However, my Limitless team felt boring and I was willing to take the risk on the Egyptian King. I decided to not go with Trent Alexander-Arnold (€6.4m) which I am sure will come back to hurt me. Zappacosta finished with one point so it makes taking the chance on Salah a no-brainer.
- Switch captaincy from Robert Lewandowski (€11.8m) to Karim Benzema (€10.2m) – I am 80% sure about making the captaincy switch. Lewandowski notched a goal but with my current rank, I need to be aggressive with the captaincy and I feel Benzema can deliver more points.
I will make sure to post my final substitutes on Twitter before the deadline.
