Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 5: Goalkeepers
- By Football Burp
This Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 5 goalkeepers round-up, based on the official UEFA game sponsored by McDonald’s, is here to usher you in the direction of clean sheets in the quarter-finals.
With all Matchday 5 fixtures taking place between Thursday June 30th and Sunday July 3rd, recommended selections include players from Poland, Belgium, Italy and Germany.
Manuel Neuer, Germany – €6.1m
The Bayern Munich stopper is still yet to concede a goal at the tournament after the Germans’ resounding 3-0 round of 16 win over Slovakia, although a semi-final against an Italy side that’s already beaten Belgium and Spain should not be underestimated.
Gianluigi Buffon, Italy – €6.0
Further to the above, you probably ought to take into account Juventus legend Buffon since he is also yet to concede a goal at Euro 2016 – the only time Italy let one in was in the 1-0 defeat to Republic of Ireland, and he didn’t start that game.
Thibaut Courtois, Belgium – €6.0
After a 2-0 opening defeat to Italy, Marc Wilmots’s side have really got their act together – they’ve scored eight and conceded none in their last three games, but then again they do face a quarter-final against a Wales side that has a certain Gareth Bale in their ranks.
Łukasz Fabiański, Poland – €5.0m
With Cristiano Ronaldo struggling to replicate his form for Real Madrid, you might fancy Portugal to come a cropper against a Poland side that’s only conceded once so far.
Good luck and happy selecting!
