Qatar 2022 World Cup, round of 16: who to field in the fantasy world, who to avoid and possible surprises
Holland – United States (Saturday 3 December at 16:00)
Gakpo is practically King Midas, everything he touches turns into a goal: he is one of the very first choices of the day. Klaassen and De Jong in midfield are also excellent options for this match, as is van Dijk in defence; Dumfries, on the other hand, continues to struggle. If the match turns out to be blocked, pay attention to the left-handed by Koopmeiners (4 goals this start of the season).
Christian Pulisic he is the real driver of these United States: 22 goals for him in the national team (in 55 appearances) with the decisive one scored against Iran, the first at the World Cup. Sargent, on the other hand, hasn’t convinced him (he hasn’t played for the national team for 3 years), Weah is a bet to be deployed only if you’re running out of alternatives. Adams and the promising young Musah have little to give to fantasy football, in midfield we only save Mckennie; to be avoided a priori, however, the defenders.
- Recommended: van Dijk, Gakpo, Pulisic
- Not recommended: Dumfries, Adams, Sargent
- Possible surprise: Koopmeiners
Argentina – Australia (Saturday 3 December at 20:00)
Leo Messi is not discussed despite the missed penalty against Poland, he is a constant threat and one of the top players of the day in attack; in the last two races theAlbicelestial found Enzo Fernandez (1 goal and 1 assist) and Julian Alvarez (1 goal), with them on the pitch the team has a completely different rhythm. The only one to avoid is Acuna, protagonist of a last match with too many mistakes and undermined by Tagliafico’s competition.
A match of extremely high difficulty is expected for Australia: it is impossible to find a fully recommended player in coach Arnold’s line-up, you can place a bet on Goodwin (1 goal and 1 assist in this World Cup) who has already shown that he can hurt the big names. Avoid Duke, who can remain caged against a solid defense like Argentina’s, and all the defensive players of the Socceroos.
- Recommended: E. Fernandez, Messi, J. Alvarez
- Not recommended: Acuna, Duke, Rowles
- Possible surprise: Goodwin
France – Poland (Sunday 4 December at 16:00)
Rabiot is in a magic moment and he still needs to be deployed, obviously Mbappé won’t be touched while Griezmann, dry for over a year in the national team, is our bet for the day in attack: when it counts, in the national team, he is ready. The only one not recommended in France is Tchouameni, without goals this season after 23 appearances; in midfield, in fact, you can find better.
We are happy to advise against Robert Lewandowski for this day, more for the demerits of the teammates than of the Barcelona forward: in fact, there are very few playable balls. Zielinski, with 7 goals and 7 assists this season, can hurt at any time even in complicated matches, Krychowiak and Bielik in midfield and all the players in the defensive line should be avoided, especially Cash who will have to contain Mbappé.
- Recommended: Rabiot, Mbappé, Zielinski
- Not recommended: Tchouameni, Cash, Lewandowski
- Possible surprise: Griezmann
England – Senegal (Sunday 4 December at 20:00)
You can bet hard on Sterling – 18 goals in his last 36 games with England – in attack for today, we feel we advise against Kane, especially if you participate in a fantasy football: his performances, in fact, are not in line with his price. Bellingham remains an excellent choice in midfield, yet to be confirmed given his exponential growth.
Boulaye Dia (8 goals this season between Salernitana and Senegal) is in excellent form, he can still be deployed as well as Ismaila Sarr who in Mané’s absence is also a penalty taker. In the offensive department, Diatta (only one goal this season) and Ndiaye should be avoided, in defense we are still focusing on Koulibaly (scored against Ecuador) who tends to get excited against top level opponents; the ward comrades, on the other hand, are to be kept out.
- Recommended: Sterling, Bellingham, Dia
- Not recommended: Kane, Diatta, Sabaly
- Possible surprise: Koulibaly
