Strengthen your defensive line for the semi-finals after consulting this Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 6 defenders round-up, based on the official UEFA game sponsored by McDonald’s.
With Matchday 6 fixtures taking place on Wednesday July 6th and Thursday July 7th, recommended selections include players from Portugal, Wales and Germany.
Jonas Hector, Germany – €5.6m
Claimed an assist for Mesut Özil’s opener in the quarter-finals against Italy and has played his part in a defence that is still yet to concede a single goal from open play at Euro 2016. They’ll have to pull out a fine performance to oust host nation France, mind.
James Chester, Wales – €4.5m
The cheapest starting member of Wales’s starting back line and capable of scoring from a set piece, as his team-mate Ashley Williams did in the 3-1 quarter-final win over Belgium. Portugal await in the semi-finals.
Pepe, Portugal – €5.5m
Has looked a danger from set pieces, but don’t expect sloppy marking from a Wales side with so much at stake. If he starts, then Raphael Guerreiro is a bargain option at €4.0m.
Good luck and happy selecting!
