Strengthen your defensive line for the Round of 16 after consulting this Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 4 defenders round-up, based on the official UEFA game sponsored by McDonald’s.
With Matchday 4 fixtures all taking place between Saturday June 25th and Monday June 27th, recommended selections include players from Germany, Wales, Poland, Switzerland, France and Spain.
Juanfran, Spain – €5.5m
Has there ever been a match more likely to end 1-0 to Spain than their last 16 clash with Italy? At €5.5, Atlético Madrid full-back Juanfran is their cheapest starting defender.
Benedikt Höwedes, Germany – €5m
Three games, three clean sheets – suffice it to say, the Germans look like they’re worth backing against Slovakia.
Adil Rami, France – €5.1m
As underwhelming as the hosts have been, they’ve not looked much like conceding – and Sevilla centre-back Rami will look cheap if they progress past Republic of Ireland and go ‘deep’ into the tournament, as some have started saying.
James Chester, Wales – €4.5m
The West Bromwich Albion man takes on a low-scoring Northern Ireland while himself posing a goal-scoring threat from set pieces.
Artur Jędrzejczyk/Michał Pazdan, Poland – €4.6m each
Poland v Switzerland is a tough one to call, with only one goal conceded between them so far, but if you fancy the Poles then they’ve got a couple of potential bargains in their starting back line.
Johan Djourou, Switzerland – €5m
Fancy Switzerland? Try former Arsenal man Djourou.
Good luck and happy selecting!
