Top Picks From Each Team

Kylian Mbappe, Paris Saint-Germain: Mbappe and Neymar are both excellent captaincy options for this game, but with Neymar playing on the wing and Mbappe drifting towards a more central role, the former Monaco star might have better chances to score, which could ultimately lead to a bigger point haul.

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich: Lewandowski has scored just two of Bayern's last 11 goals in the UEFA Champions League, but he is the top scorer in the competition and should be a lock to, at least, have quite a few chances. Serge Gnabry might be worth taking a look as well, as he has four goals in the last two UCL matches, while Joshua Kimmich has one goal and three assists in that span.

Top Captaincy Options

  1. Kylian Mbappe
  2. Robert Lewandowski
  3. Neymar
  4. Serge Gnabry
