Juventus - Ajax

Juventus lineup in first leg: Szczesny; Cancelo, Bonucci, Rugani, Sandro; Pjanic, Bentancur, Matuidi; Bernardeschi, Mandzukic, Ronaldo

Injuries: Caceres, Benatia, Chiellini, Can

Bans: none

Ajax lineup in first leg: Onana; Veltman, de Ligt, Blind, Tagliafico; de Jong, Schöne, van de Beek; Ziyech, Tadic, Neres


Bans: Tagliafico

Interesting facts:

Ajax have scored 11 goals in their 4 away UCL games and Dusan Tadic has scored in all of them

Cristiano Ronaldo has 8 goals and 2 assists in 6 games against Ajax

He also has 4 goals and 1 assist in 3 home UCL games

Ronaldo (14.5M on FanTeam) has great stats in CL home games and against Ajax in particular. He is our top-captain this week.

Ronaldo stacks well with his partners: Mario Mandzukic (12.0) and Federico Bernardeschi (12.3)

Do not write off Ajax's forwards though. Dusan Tadic (7.6M) is a particularly good investment.

Barcelona - Man Utd

Barcelona lineup in first leg: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Arthur; Messi, Suarez, Coutinho

Injuries: Vermalen, Roberto, Rakitic, Rafinha

Bans: none

Man Utd lineup in first leg: De Gea; Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw; Fred, McTominay, Pogba; Dalot, Lukaku, Rashford

Injuries: Valencia, Jones, Bailly, Matic, Herrera, A.Sanchez

Bans: Shaw

Interesting fact:

Lionel Messi scored at least once in each of Barcelona's last five domestic matches in all competitions.

Barcelona are in good shape, both in defense and attack, while Man Utd are suffering from injuries. Jordi Alba (10.5M), who has scored 1 goal and assisted 3 times in CL this season, has quite good chances for a clean sheet and assist. We are backing Lionel Messi (14.4M) and Luis Suarez (13.8M), who were rested in their last LaLiga match, as far as goals are concerned.

Porto - Liverpool

Porto lineup in first leg: Casillas; M.Pereira, Felipe, Eder, Telles; D.Pereira, O.Torres; Corona, Otavio; Marega, Soares

Injuries: Jorge, Aboubakar

Bans: none

Liverpool lineup in first leg: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, van Dijk, Milner; Fabinho, Henderson, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Injuries: Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana

Bans: none

Interesting facts:

Sadio Mane has scored 11 goals in 14 last games

Roberto Firmino scored a goal and assist in the first leg, and he has 3 goals and 2 assists in Liverpool's last 5 domestic matches

Porto have scored in all 4 home CL games this season

Moussa Marega has scored in each of them

Mane is in good form, especially in away games. Let's not forget his hat-trick in last season's match against Porto, and a brace against Bayern in round of 16. 

Porto have scored in each domestic CL game, while Liverpool have conceded in their each away CL match.

We should pick attack from both sides here - Sadio Mane (10.3M), Roberto Firmino (10.0M) from the visitors, Moussa Marega (7.3M) and Jesus Corona (6.8M) from the hosts.

Man City - Tottenham

Man City lineup in first leg: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Delph; Fernandinho, Gündogan, D.Silva; Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling

Injuries: Bravo, Zinchenko, Fernandinho

Bans: none

Tottenham lineup in first leg: Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen; Son, Kane, Alli

Injuries: Aurier, Dier, Winks, Alli, Lamela, Llorente, Kane 

Bans: none

Interesting facts:

Leroy Sane has 3 goals and 4 assists in 4 CL domestic games

Sergio Aguero has scored 18 goals in 17 home matches in all competitions

Tottenham have scored in all of their away CL games this season

Man City have impressive home stats, especially in attack. While Tottenham have scored in each of their CL games this season, they are plagued by many injuries upfront. 

It's logical to bet on City here. Leroy Sane (13.5M) and Sergio Aguero (14.0M) are our picks in attack, John Stones (9.8M) and Aymeric Laporte (10.4M) - in defense.

We hope this helps you build a winning lineup for tonight's slate. We will be providing similar tips ahead of major slates on FanTeam in the future. Follow us on Twitter , stay tuned and good luck!
