MATCHES (EDT)

FORWARDS

Cristiano Ronaldo, JUV v. LOKO (€29): The Champions League's all-time leading goal scorer opened his 2019-20 UCL account with a goal in his last outing, and he's put the ball in the back of the net in four of his last five contests. There's not much more to say to convince one of Ronaldo's knack for scoring goals on Europe's biggest stage, and in a game where Juventus are heavily favored, you better believe he'll be aiming to pad his stats.

Harry Kane, TOT v. CRV (€28): It's pick your poison with Kane, Ronaldo or Sergio Aguero in this price range. Kane's bagged a goal in back-to-back Champions League appearances, and he's in prime position to run his streak to three games as he'll look to terrify Red Star Belgrade from the opening whistle.

Federico Bernardeschi, JUV v. LOKO (€17): Bernardeschi makes for a nice alternative or complement to Ronaldo at a solid discount. He found the net in his last UCL game, and he's positioned to contribute against Lokomotiv Moscow, especially if he continues to stand over a fair share of Juve's set pieces. 

MIDFIELDERS

Angel Di Maria , PSG at CLUB (€27): Di Maria exploded for over 33 points in Ligue 1 play over the weekend, and he's averaging nearly 15 points through his first two UCL appearances this season. He can be hypnotic in the way that he guides the PSG attack, and we can expect the Argentine to be up to his usual tricks away to Club Brugge.

Kevin De Bruyne, MCI v. ATA (€26): De Bruyne has scored or assisted in all but one of his eight starts this season after failing to making a mark in the Premier League this past weekend. He should see multiple opportunities to get back on the scoresheet with Manchester City checking in as the biggest favorite on the board at home against Atalanta.

Riyad Mahrez, MCI v. ATA (€22): Mahrez makes for a viable alternative to De Bruyne, or they can be paired together if you're banking on the electric Manchester City attack going off at home against Atalanta. He can slither through defenses, and the Algerian international already has a goal and two assists through two games to kick start his UCL campaign.

DEFENDERS

Joshua Kimmich, MUN at OLY (€22): Kimmich got the goal-scoring party started in Bayern's 7-2 thrashing of Tottenham, showing off his upside as a defender who plays higher up the field and comes with lethal attacking appeal. Bayern proved that they can take care of business at home or away, and it would be no surprise to see another big away win at Olympiacos.

Benjamin Mendy, MCI v. ATA (€16): Mendy appears to by over his volatile hamstring injury, and he's someone who can supply both defensive and attacking points from his left-back spot. Look for the Frenchman to make an impact on both ends of the pitch at home against Atalanta.

Danilo, JUV v. LOKO (€13): Danilo recently returned to the matchday squad from a hamstring injury, so he's no lock to start against Moscow on Tuesday. However, with Juventus boasting the best clean sheet odds on the slate, if we can snatch potential clean sheet points at €13, he's well worth keeping an eye out for when starting lineups drop.

GOALKEEPER

Paulo Gazzaniga,  TOT v. CRV (€10): For a measly €10, Gazzaniga would typically be considered a "free square" considering Tottenham have the second-best clean sheet odds on the slate. There's cause for hesitation with Spurs so jittery at the back recently, but Red Star are a far cry from Bayern Munich and Gazzaniga is a risk worth taking to free up funds elsewhere.
