Mikel Oyarzabal in Euro 2024 Fantasy Football
Mikel Oyarzabal is still a player worth considering for your Euro 2024 fantasy football team. Yes, this may sound surprising, considering that the forward has not been a starting player for Spain in the opening two games.
Still, there are enough reasons to consider choosing him. Here’s what I based my reasoning on.

Mikel Oyarzabal in Euro 2024 Fantasy Football

Oyarzabal Set to Start Against Albania

Spain has already qualified for the knockout stages of Euro 2024. That’s simply a consequence of two excellent victories against Croatia and Italy, which resulted in victories.

The team still wants a victory in the final group game against Albania. But head coach Luis de la Fuente is willing to give players who have not received many minutes so far a chance to shine. Mikel Oyarzabal will almost certainly be one of those players.

In my book, Spain has been by far the most impressive team so far. If they are to mount a serious challenge for the Euro 2024 trophy, which I think that they can do, they will need to ensure that they have squad depth.

Oyarzabal may be a deputy for Alvaro Morata at the moment. But this could change. And, even if it does not, he offers de la Fuentes a brilliant backup plan.

Oyarzabal can play as a forward as well as a winger. He has scored a respectable 11 goals in 32 callups for Spain. And he has been one of Real Sociedad’s best players for years.

If he starts against Albania, the Basque striker stands a very good chance of scoring multiple goals. This, naturally, will improve the chances of your EUro 2024 fantasy football team of earning points.

Mikel Oyarzabal’s Stats When Playing

Oyarzabal has already played at this European championship. He has come on as a substitute and got 35 minutes. Although he did not score, this can give us an idea of his potential.

Yes, it’s true that while Mikel Oyarzabal Ugarte is now an established player, he is not at the absolute peak of his abilities.

Oyarzabal enjoyed a passing accuracy of 100% although his time on the ball was limited. He was fouled once, and made two key passes so far. He has yet to take a shot on goal.

Spain Is Impressive, and Oyarzabal Can Play a Big Role in Their Campaign

If we are honest, no, Mikel Oyarzabal Ugarte was not impressed in the 35 minutes in which he played.

Still, there is a silver lining. Oyarzabal is now a player that understands Spain’s tactical system very well. He is confident, understands the importance of this tournament for the nation, and, when things matter the most, he may come good.

For fantasy football managers, he can still be a good option, especially considering that he is relatively affordable.

If nothing else, consider picking him ahead of the Albania game. Oyarzabal needs to show his true worth in this one.
