UCL Fantasy MD5 Best Limitless Wildcard Team

For those of you that have held their Limitless Wildcard chip so far in UCL Fantasy, MD5 presents arguably the best opportunity to use it.

Below are some of the best players to select if using your Limitless in Matchday 5. Players are selected based upon on who they are playing while also taking into consideration their recent form.

It’s important to note that we are at the stage now where there will be rotation. This is due to some teams having already won 100% of their games.

Fortunately, we do have the advantage though of knowing the Bayern Munich and Man Utd lineups before the MD5 deadline as they are in the early game.

Goalkeepers

1. Samir Handanovic (Inter Milan): TSB- 3%

In a Matchday where a lot of the top teams have tough fixtures, Handanovic’s Inter Milan have a 46% chance of keeping a clean sheet.

Shakhtar Donetsk have only scored one goal in this season’s Champions League, indicating they’re not the team they used to be.

Furthermore, the Slovenian is only selected by 3% of UCL Fantasy managers. All factors considered this makes him the pick of the bunch for a Limitless Wildcard.

However, Inter do face Real Madrid away in a crunch game that could determine the winner of Group D. Therefore, he isn’t quite as appealing for those using the standard Wildcard.

2. Yassine Bounou (Sevilla): TSB- 7%

Bounou plays in the Tuesday set of fixtures, so if selected will be the starting goalkeeper.

It is essential that when selecting two goalkeepers you pick ones that play on different nights. This is because if one blanks on the Tuesday you can the sub in your reserve keeper.

Sevilla face Wolfsburg in MD5, who they drew 1-1 with the last time these teams faced each other.

Bounou has made a total of 12 saves so far in this season’s competition. Those additional save points can prove crucial.

Similar to Handanovic, Sevilla faces tougher opposition in MD6, meaning he wouldn’t be as good a pick when selecting on a wildcard.

Defenders

1. Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool): TSB- 26%

Alexander-Arnold is in terrific form. So far this season he has an incredible total of 1 goal and 10 assists in all competitions.

He faces Porto in MD5, who Liverpool defeated 5-1 away last time out. In addition to Trent’s attacking threat, Porto have only scored 2 goals aside from that consolation goal mentioned above.

Liverpool’s clean sheet odds are dampened by the fact they have already topped their group. Nevertheless, they still have a 31% chance of keeping one.

If you were using the wildcard chip this week it might be hard to fit him in due to his price, but he is a must have in any Limitless team.

It should be noted that if he starts, TAA is must have. However, with Liverpool already accumulating 12 points from 12, there is certainly a risk he will be rotated.

2. Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich): TSB- 14%

Next up is the Canadian defender who has returned in every UCL game he has played this season. There could be plenty of points up for grabs in MD5 as he heads off to play Dynamo Kiev.

While Bayern could rest a lot of their players for this game due to the fact they are already qualified for the knockout stages, we have the bonus of knowing their lineup before the deadline on Tuesay.

He is one of the most attacking defender in the Bayern team, especially with Kimmich being absent from MD5.

3. Daley Blind (Ajax): TSB- 7%

Blind is the second highest scoring defender in the game so far this season. He has scored an incredible 35 points, including 22 points in one MD when he faced Borussia Dortmund.

He takes on Besiktas next, who have conceded 12 goals so far, including 4 back to back against Sporting Lisbon. Meanwhile, defensively Ajax have been relatively good, having only conceded 1 goal in their last 3 games.

Blind is also owned by just 7% of managers ahead of the game, therefore he could be a great differential if you are in need of gaining a rank.

4. David Alaba (Real Madrid): TSB- 10%

Alaba faces Sheriff in MD5, who defeated Madrid 2-1 last time round. A repeat isn’t expected this time round though, as the Austrian’s side have been in good form recently.

Ball recovery points can prove crucial in UCL Fantasy and Alaba has got at least 1 point in every game so far. Although he is yet to get an attacking return in UCL, he has 1 goal and 3 assists in the La Liga this season.

However, he is less attractive on a standard Wildcard as he faces Inter Milan in MD6. Given Real Madrid’s form, it is arguably surprising Alaba is selected by just 10% of UCL Fantasy managers.

5. Denzel Dumfries (Inter Milan): TSB- 2%

My final defender is the Netherlands wing back, who faces a poor Shakhtar Donetsk side next. Inter kept a clean sheet the last time they faced them, and will be expected to win this time round.

Dumfries is owned by an astonishing 2% of UCL Fantasy players, despite the fact he showed during the Euros just how good he can be.

This is likely due to the fact that, curiously, as of late he’s behind Matteo Darmian in the pecking order. So, if you do select him be aware he is far from guaranteed to start.

As mentioned under Handanovic, a lot of the bigger teams have tough fixtures, so there is nothing wrong with a double up on the Inter defence.

Midfielders

1. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool): TSB- 34%

Little needs to be said when it comes to Salah and fantasy football, be it FPL or UCL Fantasy. His 15 goals and 6 assists this season says it all.

Although he is owned by 34% of managers, he is seemingly a must have and is a top captaincy option for the Wednesday fixtures.

The only problem with the Egyptian is he could be a slight rotation risk, with Liverpool having already qualified for the knockout stages. Nevertheless, he’s more likely to start than not.

As Liverpool play on the Wednesday, unfortunately, he is a pricy risk.

2. Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd): TSB- 13%

Villarreal will likely be a tough fixture for Man Utd, especially in the form they’re in. Fernandes wouldn’t be a top pick usually due to his €10.7m price tag but as a one-off he can’t be ignored.

He has managed to return in every Champions League game so far this season, and unlike say Liverpool and Bayern, United have it all to play for.

Furthermore, Villareal have also only kept 1 clean sheet in the UCL, and conceded 2 at the hands of Man Utd.

In the unlikely scenario you need reminding of what Fernandes can do when on top form, he had a total of 28 goals and 17 assists in all comps last season.

3. Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich): TSB- 16%

The German is the highest scoring player in UCL Fantasy so far this season, having accumulated a massive 51 points so far.

That includes 3 double digit hauls in a row. Undoubtedly he will be gunning for more goals and assists if he is played in MD5 against Dynamo Kiev.

As mentioned previously, we will know whether or not he is starting, and it is hard to argue against him if he is playing.

He looks to be in the best form of his career, with 8 goals and 10 assists already this season. In short, if he starts, pick him.

4. Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig): TSB- 13%

Nkunku is only second to Sane for points scored after overperforming many people’s expectations in this season’s Champions League. Despite his high points scoring, he has still gone under the radar of many UCL managers.

It also has to be noted how tough Leipzig’s group has been, having already faced 2 Champions League semi-finalists from last season.

He faces Club Brugge in MD5, and owners will be hopeful of a similar score to what he got against PSG last time out.

Nkunku might not enthuse as many on a Wildcard though as they play Man City game in MD6. In terms of MD5 though, there is very little reason to bet against him.

5. Jude Bellingham (B. Dortmund): TSB- 21%

With Dortmund becoming increasingly reliant on other main players in the absence of Haaland, Bellingham has stepped up this season. He has four attacking returns in four UCL games this season.

He faces Sporting Lisbon in MD5, who have only conceded 1 goal in their last 2 games. However, notably, they did let 5 slip to Ajax on the opening day.

Considering Dortmund are coming into this game off back to back losses against Ajax, this game has become must win for them.

Consequently, this should make the likes of Bellingham even more attractive options.

Forwards

1.Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich): TSB- 42%

The Polish international has continued his scintillating goal scoring form of previous seasons, and is currently the highest scoring forward in the game.

His 8 goals and 1 assist so far is just incredible statistics, and if he starts against Dynamo Kiev, you simply have to include him. That also goes for the captain’s armband, too.

If you didn’t already own him before this MD, it might be hard to transfer him in because of his price, but you don’t have that problem with the Limitless.

If you are in search of differentials though, Lewandowski isn’t the best shout because of his high ownership.

2.Karim Benzema (Real Madrid): TSB- 18%

It is quite surprising that Benzema is owned by just 18% of managers considering his 4 goals in his last 3 games. He also got POTM in 2 of those games.

With Real Madrid playing on Wednesday, he is a great option to give your captain’s armband to if Lewandowski doesn’t deliver the previous day.

Real will be looking to get revenge on Sheriff in MD5 after a shock defeat to the same opponents in MD2.

The Moldovan side have only lost 2 of their last 10 matches, both coming at the hands of Inter Milan. This suggests that their win against Los Blancos last time out was a once off.

3.Sebastian Haller (Ajax): TSB- 21%

Haller has surprised many with his UCL performances this season, with 7 goals and 1 assist. Those are numbers not many would have expected after his West Ham days.

Ever since Haller has left the Hammers though he has been in red hot form. He has 10 goal contributions in his first 12 games for the Dutch side.

Those returns have continued since, playing every minute in the UCL and Eredivisie, scoring 14 goals and creating 5 assists.

He is a great option ahead of MD5 as he comes up against a Besiktas side that has leaked 8 goals in their last 2 UCL games.
