Scoring points

There are plenty of ways to score points in Champions League Fantasy, but here's some of the key ones:

  • Goals (4 points for forwards, 5 for midfielders, 6 for defenders and goalkeepers)
  • Scoring from outside the box (1 point)
  • Assists (3 points per player)
  • Clean sheets (4 points for goalkeepers and defenders)
  • Player of the Match (3 points)


A key way of maximising your points total in Champions League Fantasy is the ability to change your captain within matchdays. Just as you can make substitutions between Tuesday and Wednesday if your starting players don't score as heavily as you hope, you can switch captains too – and with double points on offer for the player who gets the armband, that's a great opportunity to register big scores.


Want to challenge your mates? Why not set up a private league and give them the code to take you on and see who comes out on top over the season?

You'll also be automatically entered into three public leagues – the overall leaderboard, one with other players from your country and one with other players who support the same Champions League team as you.
