This seems to be last day you can edit or form your squad of the weekend SokkaaStars Fantasy Football. The game is going places, and your managerial skills are being tested, as more managers join. So before you get down to your squad you need to consider these superstars insider tips.
5. Lacazette Is not a wise pick
Alexandre Lacazette’s future at the club is under threat. The striker, who joined the Gunners last summer in a £53million deal, has scored just once in his last 12 games. And with the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the French doesn’t stand a chance.
Aubameyang scored on his debut in Arsenal’s 5-1 win over Everton, while Lacazette watched on from the bench; can’t expect more this weekend in the North London derby.
4. START with Di Maria
Di Maria comes in the Ligue 1 clash against Toulouse confident; this is after his amazing performance and hat-trick away at Ligue 2 side Sochaux on Tuesday, helped Paris Saint-Germain marched into the Coupe de France quarterfinals.
The Argentine is believed to be pushing hard for a starting role against Real next week; he must take advantage of Mbappe’s absence to prove something at Toulouse.
3. Coutinho Feels at home
Everybody says the same thing about Liverpool after Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho combine for Barcelona goal. Coutinho was left on the bench for Thursday’s semi-final second leg at the Mestalla, but came on at half-time and just four minutes later he opened the scoring.
Coutinho recalled his first Premier League goal against Swansea City that was also set by Suarez. We hope he replicates his performances of late.
2. STAY AWAY from Paulo Dybala
Paulo Dybala is close to making his Juventus return, reports suggest, but he’s still likely to miss the next two matches. La Joya has been out with a hamstring injury since limping off against Cagliari last month but has been gradually increasing his training workload this week.
It’s a 15% chance he can make it to the starting XI, and a risk you may not want to take.
The Barcelona maestro may have had a struggling 8 points in our SokkaaStars, but expect a revival in this weekend; both goals and assists. Putting Messi up front this weekend would be WISE. The Catalan magician will effortlessly be causing troubles to the Getafe defense, and hence loading your round points to full.
