Champions League 2019/20

The Champions League is set to return on the 17th September and will also make it's return to Fantasy Hub.

You can now build your ultimate fantasy football teams with some of the best players that the world has to offer.

Want a front three of Ronaldo, Messi and Mbappe? Now you can, but be wary of the 75m budget which can soon dwindle down if you don't spread it wisely.

Fantasy Hub is FREE to play and available on Android and iPhone here!

Picking your team

Picking your first team is easily the best part of playing fantasy football, all of the options, trying to work within a tight budget and finding the ultimate hidden gem.

Just like our Premier League and Championship fantasy games, you'll have the same budget of 75m, however fitting in all of the elite players is going to be easier said than done.

With a roster of world class players, you'll find many of the top players over the 7.0m mark. This alone makes finding hidden gems and bargains all the more difficult.

Do you stick to what you know and go with players from the favourite teams or do you take risk it and pick players from the smaller European teams and hope for a fairytale run like Ajax did last season?

Once you've picked your teams be sure to send screenshots of them into Fantasy Hub on Twitter and Facebook

Rule Changes - Player Limit

Unlike our other Fantasy Football games, the Champions League has one or two slightly different rules.

The first difference being the maximum players per club, limit. For the group stage and the last 16 it will be four players per club, similar to the other Fantasy Football games.

However this soon changes as the tournament reaches the latter stages. Max players per club limit for each Champions League stage are as follows:

  • Group Stage & Last 16 - 4 players per club.
  • Quarter Finals - 5 players per club.
  • Semi Finals - 6 players per club.
  • Final - 7 players per club.

Using your instinct and predicting which teams will reach the final will give you a great advantage on the other users in your mini-leagues.

Rule Changes - Transfers

Similar to the players per club changes, transfers are also slightly different.

Both the Premier League and Championship fantasy football games allow you to make up to three transfers each gameweek, with the Champions League you get FOUR!

You will also receive unlimited transfers up until the kick-off in the first group stage game, so there is plenty of time for second thoughts and last minute changes.

Like at the start of the tournament you'll also get unlimited transfers once the group stage is complete. Allowing you to remove any eliminated players from your Fantasy Hub teams.

Knowing you get unlimited transfers between the group stage ending and the knock out stage starting, should allow you to take more risks on lesser known players, with the worst case scenario being you just start a fresh after the groups.

Hidden Gems

Make sure you check each group to see which teams have easy games and which to avoid.

Straight away people will jump for the big guns which is fine but they come at a premium and there are plenty of good players representing the so called smaller clubs.

Take Group G for example, which features Zenit, Benfica, Lyon and Leipzig. Two of the four teams advance to the knock-out stage and many of their players will be a steal compared to those playing for one of the giants.

Depay at 6.9m or Benfica's Pizzi at 5.8m are two players you should be seriously considering.

The latter managed 13 goals and 19 assists last season and could free up some funds for you to use elsewhere in your teams.

Memphis Depay has a solid 18/19 season scoring 10 times and getting 10 assists.
