EURO 2020 Semi-Finals: Fantasy Differential Picks

Koke|€7.4m|3%

A highly differential asset with an extremely high potential for returns, that is the best thing an asset can offer his manager. Koke is on Spain’s dead ball duties be it short range free kicks or corners. With 8 key passes and 33 progressive passes already, Koke is a great asset ready to explode and one should be prepared to capitalize on him. He could be the key to rise in your mini leagues.

Pedri|€6.1m|4%

Though his attacking return is not the highest, he does have the ability to pack a massive punch. For Barcelona last season he had an xG+A of 9.8 and in the Euros he has an xA of 1.1 along with 9 key passes, second highest for a Spaniard in the competition. Playing so well, one shouldn’t put it past Pedri to finally open his account in the moment when it matters. He could actually be very similar to Andres Iniesta, a player great on the ball and didn’t score much, but when he did…. It mattered

Jack Grealish|€7.8m|11%

It has been a real surprise to see how less Jack Grealish has played in the Euros, especially given how well he has played in the little time he has been given to play. With an assist every 58 minutes, he has the best per 90 goal contribution for an Englishman. Apart from that he has 2.3 key passes per 90, again highest for an Englishman. If he starts, he can be a major boost to his side and Gareth Southgate might finally realize that and play him for the full 90.

Mason Mount|€7.1m|13%

The crown jewel of Chelsea’s Champions League winning side, he is continuing his excellent form in the Euros. With an xA+G of 1.3 he has great attacking potential. With 5 shots and 5 Key passes he is playing great football especially when he gets the ball in the opposition third. Mount is a guaranteed starter in one of the best teams in the world riding high on confidence playing arguably the easiest fixture in the semi finals.

  Giovanni Di Lorenzo|€5.2m|3%

Italy has one of the best defenses in the world right now, prior to the knockout stages they had kept 10 consecutive clean sheets and Di Lorenzo is an undisputed starter in that defense since Alessandro Florenzi picked up an injury. Di Lorenzo also has a high return potential, he had 10 goal contributions last season with Napoli playing as a right back and has been showing signs in the Euros as well. With already 5 shots taken he is banging on the door of the opposition goal and against Spain he just might break it open.

  Emerson Palmieri|€5.5m|2%

After the unfortunate injury to the Leonardo Spinazzola, Emerson will be taking his spot in the starting 11 and might be a great option for the Fantasy managers to swap the two straight away in their teams. That left flank has been crucial for the Italian side and Emerson does have the ability to rise to the occasion. In his solo start for Italy in the Euros 2020 he took 2 shots and put one of them on target as well. A highly differential option he is a good shout for a good return from a defender.

Yussuf Poulsen|€8.5m|6%

No Danish forward has more fantasy points than Yussuf Poulsen in the Euros 2020 and he will be looking to keep it that way. This Denmark squad has already made history by reaching the semi finals for the first time since 1984 and they will be looking to become the first in history to reach the finals and Poulsen will be at the center of this. He is in great form and his team will be looking to him to inspire them to another victory.
