The league of talents starts Friday evening, let’s see what players should we add in our Footballcoin Fantasy Team for the first stage of Ligue 1.

First of all we should go for a balanced formation and the ideal choice is 3-4-3.

Goalkeeper: Alphonse Areola (PSG)

The PSG goalkeeper has a big chance of keeping a clean sheet Sunday night on Parc des Princes against Nimes.

Defending trio: Kenny Lala (Strasbourg ), Jose Fonte ( Lille ) , Marquinhos ( PSG ).

We start with Lala. The 27 year old defender is a key player at Strasbourg, good at crossing and long balls, he could provide an assist on their home stadium against Metz.

Jose Fonte, center point into Lille’s defense last season, can win any aerial duel and clear the ball safely for his team, that’s the type of defender you want in your opening round fantasy team.

Marquinhos, the versatile maestro of the PSG defense, a center-back, a defensive midfielder, you name it and he is there. Definitely a sure pick in the team.

Midfield line: Morgan Sanson ( Marseille ), Angel Di Maria( PSG ), Flavien Tait ( Stade Rennais ), Marco Verratti ( PSG ).

Yes, we must know the midfielders are important, right in the middle of the field there is no place for mistakes and this line has everything you need for the first round.

Morgan Sanson is an exceptional all-round midfielder who can pass, dribble, shoot, assist and score. 

Di Maria is an offensive threat every week and centrepiece in PSG’s hopes of domination for this year. 

Flavien Tait, he moved from Angers to Stade Rennais this summer. He had a good 18/19 season, watch out for him.

Last but not least, Verratti. Deep-lying midfielder at PSG for so many years, he filters like a computer every attack his teammates build. A smart pick for everybody into the teams.

Ligue 1 attacking trio: Kylian Mbappe ( PSG ), Edinson Cavani ( PSG ), Florian Thauvin ( Marseille).

Mbappe. No words needed here. He is the best young player in the world and a World Cup winner. He is a must have in your team. 

Edinson Cavani, an ice cold finisher who is a constant threat to the opposition’s defense with his abilities and skills in front of the goal.

Florian Thauvin you won’t get any defensive contribution from him but you have an ultra attacking No. 10 in your team. Holds the ball, takes set-pieces and likes to cut inside getting the goals for “ Les Olympiens”.


– Goalkeeper: Walter Benitez ( Nice )

– Defender: Thilo Kehrer ( PSG )

– Midfielder: Yann M’Vila ( St. Etienne )

– Forward: Andy Delort ( Montpellier )
