Pasko’s DFS UEFA Picks for Round of 16, Leg 1

On Wednesday, February 14 UEFA Championship League Round of 16, Leg 1 continues with two games:

  • Real Madrid  – Paris Saint-Germain and
  • FC Porto –Liverpool FC

DraftKings features several contests for all UEFA Championship League games.

All eyes are going to be on the Real-PSG game. PSG are stronger this year, which will make Real Madrid cautious. It is conceivable that Real-PSG is going to be a low scoring game, possibly ending in a 0-0 tie. From a fantasy soccer point of view, Porto-Liverpool is a less risky candidate.

With that in mind, for my roster I am going with a couple of defenders from Real-PSG and then with forwards from Liverpool which has never lost to Porto.

Sergio Ramos ($3,800) – Defender – Real Madrid: Zidane will never leave him on the bench.

Dani Alves ($5,100) – Defender – Paris Saint-Germain: Expect crosses in the area from the right side.

Mohamed Salah ($9,800) – Forward – Liverpool: 22 goals in EPL this campaign.

Roberto Firmino ($7,800) – Midfielder/Forward – Liverpool: 12 goals scored in EPL.
