How do I score points?
There are plenty of ways to score points in EURO Fantasy, but here's some key ones:
- Goals (4 points for forwards, 5 for midfielders, 6 for defenders and goalkeepers)
- Assists (3 points per player)
- Clean sheets (4 points for goalkeepers and defenders)
A key route to big points in EURO Fantasy is the ability to change your captain within matchdays. Just as you can substitute out players who don't deliver the points you'd hoped for, you can switch captains too – and with double points on offer for your captain, that's a big opportunity to score heavily.
