Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Jamie Maclaren – The Melbourne City FC forward has had an excellent season in the A-league. He has scored 25 goals and provided 5 assists in his 23 starts for the club. Creating 27 chances, attempting 52 shots on target as well. Maclaren also managed to score in his last game against Chinese Taipei.

Nikita Rukavytsya – Rukavystya plays for the Israeli side, Maccabi Haifa and has exposure to European football. His side played 4 games for the Europa League qualification during which he scored and assisted in all of the games. This included a game against Tottenham Hotspurs.

Differential Pick

Matthew Leckie – Leckie is one of the few players in the Australian squad that plays in one of Europe’s top 5 leagues. The Hertha Berlin midfielder has been great for the club whenever given a chance. His experience will be quite crucial to Australia as they fight for a spot in the World Cup.

Defenders – Sainsbury, Degenek, Behich
Midfielders – Leckie, Uperkoti, Tamang, Lama

Likely Winner: 

Australia should win the NEP vs AUS Today Match Prediction easily. They have scored 24 times and conceded just twice in their 6 group games. Nepal, on the other hand, has conceded 19 times while scoring just 4 times so far. They have also lost 5 of their 7 games which makes this a very difficult game for them. Australia also has the better players, many of whom play in some top league all over the world. While even a draw will suffice for the Aussies, they will want to make it 8 wins out of 8 and this is the penultimate step for them.
