Football fans across the world continue to test their managerial skills through SokkaaStars Fantasy Football game. The showdown continues this coming weekend across Europe. The time to make your team selection is now. Today, we want to highlight five stars you might have to think twice before you ignore. They have not had a great run of form in recent days and weeks but as we all know form is temporary but class is permanent. They are worth the risk because they are capable of pulling off surprises. As they say, no risk no gain. Take a look;
5. Ivan Rakitic- Barcelona
Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic garnered only 6 points last weekend on SokkaaStars Fantasy Football League. It was a shocking performance given how good forward players performed in the 4-2 Championship triumph against Deportivo. Lionel Messi grabbed a hat-trick to make it four after Philippe Coutinho opener. However, this should not be enough to ignore or drop the Croatian midfielder. He is capable of pulling off a surprise and punishing many SokkaaStars managers this weekend. Keep him close for valuable points.
4. Nacho Monreal- Arsenal
Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal usually scores big points on SokkaaStars Fantasy League. However, last weekend against Manchester United, he only managed to get 2 points. It was a shocking performance but understandable given the weakened team. This weekend, many managers might think of dropping him but this will be a costly decision. The Spaniard might shock his doubters. The best route is to stick with him to avoid a terrible punishment.
3. Angel Di Maria- PSG
Ligue 1 Champions Paris Saint-Germain almost lost at home last weekend against Guingamp. Edinson Cavani saved the day with a late brace to avoid a shameful defeat in front of home fans. Unai Emery will be disappointed by the performance of key players like Angel Di Maria. The Argentine was below par on the day. He garnered only four points on SokkaaStars Fantasy League. However, according to his past record, dropping him is riskier than retaining him in your team. This is because as we all know he is a much winner. No need for risking valuable points by giving him a cold shoulder.
