Besiktas UCL Fantasy
We spoke to Besiktas fan from Reddit and have his thoughts on the current campaign.
u/ErraticSnail is a 36 year old Besiktas fan. He has always been a fan of Besiktas since childhood.
During early 90s Besiktas had a successful unbeaten campaign in the league, winning him over.
Below are in his own words.
Besiktas UCL Fantasy 2021/22 – Returning to Champions League
We are all very excited and looking forward to get the games going.
We had a great run in 2017/18 with topping our group unbeaten.
Unluckily we drew Bayern Munich in the Last 16 and Vida (DEF) got an early red in the first match then it was over.
Since then Turkish Lira is crashing compared to 3-4 years ago, joining the UCL is great source of income for our team also.
I think that’s why we were able to sign Ghezzal (MID | 5.5) and Rosiser (DEF | 4.5) permanently. And also having a relatively easier group helped us loan Pjanic (MID | 7.0).
Chances from Group C
Besiktas landed in one of the best groups that we can land. It was either Group G or C for us and we manage to land in C.
For sure BVB will top the group, but I believe there is at least a chance for us to compete for the 2nd place in this group.
Ajax and Sporting Lisbon are still very good teams but I believe we can at least have some hope going forward.
Considering that now Pjanic (MID | 7.0) also joined, we have a strong attack force with Batshuayi (FWD | 5.5) in the forward and Ghezzal (MID | 5.5) on the right side of the pitch.
Alex Teixeira (MID | 6.5) also joined the club and we remain optimistic.
Batshuayi (FWD | 5.5) with a 5.5M price tag is a good budget enabler forward. He is nailed and I strongly believe that he will get on the score sheet more than expected during our group journey.
Ghezzal (MID | 5.5) also deserves a shot with 5.5M price tag. He is nailed and he is also on set pieces and penalties. He completed the last season with 8 goals and 17 assists.
Ersin Destanoglu (GK | 4.0) is also another bugdet keeper. He’s at 4M and he’s nailed. However, honestly I’d stay away because I don’t think we will get many clean sheets.
There is our left back Rıdvan Yılmaz (DEF | 4.0) who is a 20 year old and product of our own academy.
He had a good start last season but then didn’t manage to get back to his level after he had some injury. Unfortunately, I think he may not get much playing time in UCL.
Personal UCL Fantasy Pick
Starting from MD2 and MD4 we will be playing Ajax and Sporting Lisbon.
If we want to qualify for the second round we have to give a good fight against them. Considering this, I think Batshuayi (FWD | 5.5) and Ghezzal (MID | 5.5) are good options at fairly cheap prices.
If I want to keep other premiums in my team and want to enable some budget, I’d definitely pick both players.
