Strengthen your defensive line after consulting this Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 3 defenders round-up, based on the official UEFA game sponsored by McDonald’s.
With Matchday 3 incorporating each team’s second group stage game – all taking place from Saturday June 19th to Wednesday June 22nd – recommended selections include players from Germany, Poland, Italy and Spain.
Benedikt Höwedes, Germany
The cheapest starting defender for a side that’s yet to concede going into their final group stage clash with Northern Ireland.
Kamil Glik, Poland
A danger from set pieces, the Torino centre-back is also part of a back line that managed to keep a clean sheet against Germany – what chance, then, for under-performing Ukraine?
Emanuele Giaccherini, Italy
Listed as a defender despite playing further forwards, the Sunderland man is also cheap – and while Republic of Ireland may not be the easiest of fixtures, Italy have looked very solid so far.
The holders are starting to look imperious again, beating Turkey 3-0 last time out – although Croatia could be tricky opponents.
Good luck and happy selecting!
