Achraf Hakimi (Defender, €5.8m)

Currently the second highest #UCLfantasy points scorer this season, the Dortmund man has proved to be worth his weight in gold for those who owned the Moroccan star throughout the group stage. Hakimi has been utilised on the wing at times this season by coach Lucien Favre and the results have been spectacular. Four goals in the group stage, including a double against Slavia Praha on Matchday 2, along with two clean sheets, brought him a bumper total of 47 points. Assuming Hakimi adopts a similar attacking role on Matchday 7, he could well add to his tally; he's already scored 18 and 14 points in individual games this season.

Jorginho (Midfielder, €5.7m)

The Chelsea midfielder's primary role in the team is not necessarily scoring goals. However, his status as the side's designated penalty taker has led to him scoring twice in this season's competition, both goals coming from the spot on Matchday 4 in a thrilling 4-4 draw with Ajax. Jorginho also recovered 41 balls during the group stage, racking up 13 #UCLfantasy points from ball recoveries alone. With 33 points accumulated so far this season, the Italian has proven himself a steady points scorer and whilst he remains on penalties, there's always a chance that Jorginho could provide a decent return at home to Bayern München in the first leg.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo (Defender, €5.0m)

Di Lorenzo proved himself a key attacking outlet from the full-back position throughout the autumn as Napoli qualified as Group E runners-up after going through their six games unbeaten. With two assists alongside three clean sheets, defender Di Lorenzo provides points both at the back and going forward. Napoli are at home to Barcelona on Matchday 7 and will be in desperate need of a positive first leg result to take to the Camp Nou. Di Lorenzo has the potential to contribute at both ends of the field.

Erling Braut Haaland (Forward, €4.7m)

The second top scorer of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League and surely the biggest bargain of this year's #UCLfantasy will return to compete in the knockout stages after joining Dortmund from Salzburg in January. Eight goals in the group stage for the Austrian champions, including one assist, brought the Norwegian 44 #UCLfantasy points over six matchdays. Since joining Dortmund, the 19-year-old has scored eight goals in his first five matches for the German side, and shows no sign of ending his golden run of form. His new side face French champions Paris in the round of 16, but in his current mood Haaland provides incredible points value no matter the opponents.

Robin Gosens (Defender, €4.3m)

The attacking wing-back established himself as a key part of an Atalanta side who won their final two group stage matches to qualify for the round of 16. Two clean sheets alongside a goal brought Gosens 22 #UCLfantasy points from those two games and since then he has continued his run of form, scoring three times in his last six matches in Serie A. With Atalanta hosting Valencia on Matchday 7, owning a cheap asset like Gosens who can pick up points in both defence and attack could prove a shrewd acquisition.
