Next Deadline – Wildcard
MD7 deadline for UCL Fantasy is on 17 Feb 2021, a good 67 days from now (time of writing).
Every UCL Fantasy managers gets a wildcard, you are free to make unlimited substitutions within your budget until MD7.
Also the player pool is essentially halved – you can you pick from 16 teams which have progressed.
Group Stage top players
By and large some major surprises in UCL Fantasy this season – expensive assets like Messi, Lewandowski and Ronaldo have found the net but have scored only 28, 20 and 30 points respective.
Atalanta’s Romero ended the Group Stages as the top UCL Fantasy player with 50 points. He has scored once and assisted once, kept 3 clean sheets but a staggering 22 points had come from his 72 recoveries over 5 games.
Angelino of Leipzig had 46 points – his attacking prowess was on show as he scored 3 goals and assisted 3 times in 6 games. Also on 46pts is Porto’s Sanusi. Owned by only 5% of the game, his side kept 5 clean sheets in 6 games and he had 32 ball recoveries.
Man Utd’s Rashford scored 6 goals in the Group Stages and he amassed 42 points – United is eliminated and unless he moves clubs in the winter window, Rashford will not add to his UCL Fantasy points.
MD7 – MD13
There will naturally be changes as the tournament moves into knock-out stages.
Maximum number of players from the same club
Firstly, maximum number of players from the same club is increased gradually:
- For the round of 16, you can pick a maximum of four players from the same club in your squad.
- For the quarter-finals, you can pick a maximum of five players from the same club in your squad.
- For the semi-finals, you can pick a maximum of six players from the same club in your squad.
- For the final, you can pick a maximum of eight players from the same club in your squad.
The number of transfers in between matchdays are also increased:
|Phase||Number of free transfers|
|MD7||Before round of 16 1st leg||Unlimited|
|MD8||Before round of 16 2nd leg||3|
|MD9||Before quarter-final 1st leg||5|
|MD10||Before quarter-final 2nd leg||3|
|MD11||Before semi-final 1st leg||5|
|MD12||Before semi-final 2nd leg||3|
This is of course to help UCL Fantasy managers transfer out players who already have been eliminated the round before.
Once the knockout stage starts, you can’t carry any free transfers forward between matchdays – a change from the the Group Stages.
The Wildcard and Limitless are available for use – if you had not used them yet. A quick point on Limitless – the number of players from same club applies even on Limitless, the difference is of course that you will be able to break your budget under Limitless.

Suffice to say there is plenty of time until the next deadline. Chill, park this aside over the holiday season and see you in 2 months!
