Fantasy football in Europe

The Euro 2016 European Championship soccer tournament has the ability to provide the kick daily fantasy sports, such as leagues run by DraftKings and it also has the need to get going in Europe that’s a gaming platform also believes that has the much value among the people.

In fantasy sports, players compete against each other by organizing a team of athletes from a real-world sport. Based on the players’ statistical performance, they earn points and a cash pay-out to get dominance.

In 2015, there were 57.4 million people fantasy sports players in the U.S. and Canada, according to estimated figures from the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.

Daily fantasy sports, such as fantasy football, have been present in Europe for years but have failed to compete strongly and to achieve a strong market share against traditional gambling and sports betting.

Real Madrid duly raised another Champions League trophy, while Manchester United showed everyone they’re back by lifting the moderately respectable Europa League.

All eyes will be on Zinedine Zidane’s men next season to see if they can achieve a third straight Champions League win with usual strength, while five Premier League clubs will be competing in Europe’s biggest club competition to get more attraction.

Positions of the football players on the ground


The most interesting among you will be screaming for Juventus veteran Gianluigi Buffon, while common-sense is sure to give points to Madrid’s Keylor Navas.

But in actuality, Man United’s Mister Reliable Sergio Romeo (90 points) pipped the lot more than our expectations as our best XI goalie.


Before their 4-1 thumping in the final, Juventus had a fine defensive record in the Champions League as the player in the defense position.

You should know that Juve full-backs Dani Alves (58 points) and Alex Sandro (43 points) both have the quality to produce the best XI back-four, with Europa League winning defender for the league to get more fame.


Man United’s Paul Pogba (35 points) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (45 points) more-or-less justifying their lofty price-tags this terms and rules of this kind, with United going all the way in the Europa League.

However, proving that there’s obviously a great value in backing one of the mainstays of Europe’s secondary competition that’s held by the teams, Brazilian midfielder Talisca (40 points) is perhaps a surprise inclusion to our midfield trio but clearly did the works for Besiktas and plucky Dream Team to get a victory for his Europe managers alike.


Of course, Cristiano Ronaldo (90 points) is in our best XI, and quite frankly it would be a travesty if he wasn’t able to do it.

5 impressive players, you simply MUST HAVE for the opening group games of football

So you should have a good look to recognize the players from each club you should be seriously considering for your fantasy football team.

1 Gary Cahill – Chelsea

Chelsea’s year-long absence from the competition is over now and should always be ready for the next one, as the Blues face Azerbaijani champions Qarabag (read that as ‘carrier bag’ – it makes them less daunting) at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Manager Antonio Conte has pointed he’ll leave the likes of Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata on the bench for the Group C opener, so we’re hoping to see a fairly heavily rotated Chelsea side for this game to get better results.

But we wouldn’t be surprised to see Captain Gary Cahill make a return to the team because it would be.

The England defender lasted just 13 minutes into the Blues opening Premier League game of that season against the inform team Burnley before getting sent off.

2 Marcus Rashford – Man United

Marcus Rashford loves a debut and he should have.

The youngster burst onto the scene back in 2016 when he scored twice in the Europa League against FC Midtjylland to help and get dominance for his team a beleaguered Louis van Gaal.

He followed that to score well in his Premier League debut, Manchester derby debut, EFL Cup debut, England debut… you get the idea.

This kid isn’t easily daunted, so what’s the betting or condition of his going into United’s Champions League clash against Basel full of beans and wishing to complete his brilliant record of scoring in competition debuts?

3 Roberto Firmino – Liverpool

Liverpool’s passage into the Champions League just appeared like an impressive and outstanding two leg display against German side RB Leipzig, with forwarding Roberto Firmino dominant and impressing performance.

So much so, in fact, that he’s currently the highest point’s scorer on Dream Team with 41 points.

Jurgen Klopp’s side is arguably perfect now, with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane already displaying their performance in the competition this season.

But it’s Firmino we’ve got our beady eye on every segment of the match.


4 Leroy Sane – Man City

City will be desperate for success in this season’s competition that will be going to be held among the different teams, after crashing out of their last campaign to Monaco in the round of 16.

Pep Guardiola will be hoping strongly to get the opportunity in the semi final because their team has the ability to do so.

Don’t expect to see Vincent Kompany make an appearances; he’s out with an injury and ready now to be in the ground, while goalkeeper Ederson is a major doubt as he’s still trying to get his face out of Sadio Mane’s boot.

5 Son Heung-Min – Spurs

With City’s demolition of Liverpool at the weekend, Tottenham’s 3-0 win over Everton may have gone slightly unnoticed and was forgotten about it.

But it was safely one of the club’s best performances in recent times and will put Spurs fan in a great mood ahead of their problem against German giants Dortmund.

And with Dele Alli suspended for three games in the Champions League, we fully expect forward Son Heung-Min to come into the side to get involvement.

It just so happens that the South Korean maestro like to play against BVB, having scored five times in six games against them when he was at Bayer Leverkusen.

He could well be Mauricio Pochettino’s secret weapon for his team.
