Make transfers wisely with these McDonald’s FIFA World Cup Fantasy tips for defenders in the final matches of Russia 2018’s official fantasy football.
Recommended defender picks include players from France and Belgium.
Benjamin Pavard, FRA – 4.5m
He’s the cheapest defender guaranteed to start in the final, and he plays for the favourites. Pavard is clearly the obvious choice from France.
Having said that, Samuel Umtiti and Raphaël Varane have each scored in the knockout stages so do consider having them as well as Pavard.
Toby Alderweireld/Dedryck Boyata, BEL – 5.8m/5m
Alderweireld is a threat from set pieces, but will he start the third place play-off against England?
Keep an eye out for team news, because Boyata could be a bargain if he deputises for anyone.
Good luck and happy selecting!
