Benzema and Jorginho are part of the Champions League fantasy football team of the week. Who else made the grade?

It was one of the most goal-rich weeks in recent Champions League history. Real Madrid and Tottenham triumphed beyond expectation. PSG struggled to earn three points. Manchester City fell victim to poor luck.

We’ve crunched the number and here is the ideal UCL fantasy football team according to the FootballCoin stats. How many made it into your draft?

Champions League Team of the Day

Goalkeeper

Ondrej Kolar– 50.60 points

Defenders 

Achraf Hakimi– 73.70

Joachim Andersen– 53.90

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 53.20

Leo Dubois – 50.30

Midfielders

Giovani Lo Celso – 48.65

Sven Bender – 48.40

Jorginho – 47.40

Attackers

Rodrygo – 67.10

Karim Benzema – 50.30

Jose Callejon – 43.20

We have opted for a 4-3-3 formation, one that showcases the top performers in this week’s Champions League matches. A special distinction needs to be given to Achraf Hakimi, with the Borussia Dormund claiming the MVP role having managed 73.3 points following his performance in the German side’s 3-2 victory over Inter. Hakimi scored twice and managed four shots on goal. Impressive stats, especially given his defending duties!

Ondrej Kolar surprisingly fills out the GK position, ahead of much more famous keepers. The Slavia Prague #1 earned his place in the squad, following an excellent performance that had Lionel Messi’s FC Barcelona held to a 0-0 draw.

Sven Bender is FootballCoin’s top midfielder for the day. The German was vital in Bayer Leverkusen’s memorable 2-1 victory over a side that is highly experienced with the pressures of the UCL, Atletico Madrid. Bender was dominant in the center of the pitch, managing a 92% successful pass rate and winning 5 aerial duels.

As for the attacking department, while Karim Benzema has added goals to an already impressive tally for Real Madrid, it was youngster Rodrygo that stole the show. The 18-year-old Brazilian, already branded the Real Madrid Neymar by some, scored a hat-trick and managed an assist against Turkish side Galatasaray. While such comparisons may be hasty, there’s no denying Rodrygo’s tremendous skill and cool head under pressure.

Jose Callejon, playing in a hybrid midfielder-attacking role for Napoli,  rounds up our attacking line. In spite of failing to score or assist, Callejon excelled in one other important area, crosses. The Spaniard was responsible for no less than 8 successful crosses.

This is our surprising, yet high-performing Team of the Week for Champions League contests How many did you have on your side? Who was your biggest disappointment? Fantasy football managers will have their chance at a do-over soon enough with contests taking place nearly every single day that follows. Create your team, draw up your strategy and grab the exciting prizes at stake.
