Let’s check out five players who are set to claim the most points in UCL fantasy this weekend.

The UEFA Champions League is back, and that means it’s time for UCL Fantasy managers to fine-tune their squads and make some crucial decisions. 

The captaincy decision can make or break your fantasy week, as it can double the points of the chosen player. In this article, we take a look at the best captain choices for Matchday 1 of the Champions League Fantasy, helping you kick off your campaign with a bang.

5- Victor Osimhen (Braga vs Napoli)

Osimhen has found a perfect start to the new Serie A season, scoring three goals in three matches. This weekend, the Nigerian striker is expected to play for the Blues as they take on Braga. 

4- Xavi Simons (Young Boys vs RB Leipzig)

Simons have taken the Bundesliga by storm since completing a loan switch to Leipzig in the summer transfer window. The in-form winger remains a key player for the German giants as they take on Young Boys this Tuesday.

3- Kylian Mbappe (PSG vs Dortmund)

PSG have found a tough start to the new Ligue 1 season, winning only two of their first five matches. Mbappe, however, has maintained his fantastic form, scoring seven goals in his four league displays for Mauricio Pochettino’s men. We expect the Frenchman to find enough chances to score against Borussia Dortmund at Parc des Princes.

2- Robert Lewandowski (Barcelona vs Real Betis)

Lewandowski returns to the Champions League with a match against Antwerp. The Poland international’s wonderful record in the UCL group stage convinces us that he can make an impact against the Belgian side.

1- Erling Haaland (Manchester City vs Crvena zvezda)

Haaland is the best captaincy choice for the UCL fantasy this week. He has started the new Premier League campaign on a fantastic note, and his previous stats in the competition also promise a solid display against the Serbian side.
