Hello RotoBallers! The UEFA Champions League is limited to the last four teams, and the second leg of each semi-final game takes place this week. The three remaining UCL slates from now on will be single game slates. I have another full breakdown for you covering this slate. Keep reading this breakdown for my DFS football picks on RotoBaller and see how to be successful on Tuesday’s slate.

Selection of the UCL DFS range – Presentation
PSG v Manchester City
Last week, Manchester City (-145) took care of business in France by beating PSG 2-1. They scored two massive away goals, and now they’re heading home for the second leg of this semi-final. Both teams have victories on Saturday and should be ready to leave on Tuesday. City may have won the first leg, but it was a fairly consistent game. This game should be relatively smooth again with PSG pressing for goals. The total of the upper / lower lens is 3.0.
Forwards / Midfielders FanDuel DFS
It might be a tough game for him, but I think Neymar ($ 14) will be released on Tuesday. It is a game where PSG must score to advance. He just scored a goal this weekend and is in a good position on Tuesday. He’s got good peripherals for an attacker, and his upside goal is solid at +175.
I honestly like Kylian mbappe ($ 13) a decent amount in this game even thought it was a tough game. PSG’s forwards collected better peripherals in the first game, and they will be forced to attack a lot if they want a shot to advance to the final.
Bernardo Silva ($ 9) turned into a decent game in the first leg with 13.2 fantasy points. He’s involved enough to give himself a good word in most games. He should be busy again in this game with PSG pressing for goals. He should score somewhere close to his first game, but he also has a decent goal on the rise with odds of +260.
Ilkay Gundogan ($ 7) is too cheap for its benefit and should be considered one of the best value options on this slate.
FanDuel DFS Defenders
It was a fantastic ugly and ugly day for all defenders aside Marquinhos ($ 9) in the first leg that scored the only goal for PSG. No one else has scored more than 15 fantasy points. I don’t think Marquinhos is its price here. He likely won’t score again, and his defensive peripherals don’t justify paying, especially with other, cheaper defenders.
I prefer Danilo Pereira ($ 7) for less and even Abdou Diallo ($ 4). Both defenders should be well prepared for a solid fantasy game with defensive stats, and they’re both very affordable on this slate.
Joao cancelo ($ 10) has good attacking potential although he hasn’t shown that much at UCL lately. His defensive peripherals are pretty decent where you don’t risk very low play like a lot of the other defenders on this slate.
Ruben Dias ($ 6) is the only other defender I’ll consider on this slate with its cheap price tag and decent peripherals.
Thanks for reading my EPL DFS list of choices on RotoBaller and good luck!
