Last-minute tips for Dream Team Euros gaffers – get your XI sorted before Turkey v Italy

No time to muck about, Euro 2020 is here and your Dream Team Euros XI needs to be in perfect shape.

If you make any changes after Turkey v Italy kicks off then you’ll be eating into your allocation of 20 transfers so make sure you’re as happy as possible before 8pm.

Just to clarify how transfers work. You get 20 to use throughout the tournament and you’re capped at a maximum of three per day.

Any eligible transfers will take place immediately and will occur if you swap a player out for another where neither of the relevant countries have played on the day of the transfer.

If one of the countries of the players involved have kicked off that day then the change becomes a pending transfer. All pending transfers will go through the following day (at one second past midnight to be precise).

For example, you can’t transfer out a player who played at 2pm for a player starting in the 8pm kick-off the same day and get points for the latter as the change won’t go through until the following day.

Right, some quickfire tips…

Leonardo Spinazzola (£2.5m) is set to start at left-back for Italy over Emerson Palmieri (£2.5m) and there are rumours that Federico Chiesa (£4.0m) may start of the bench this evening – Domenico Berardi (£3.5m) has impressed Roberto Mancini in recent weeks.

Those in the know seem to think Alvaro Morata (£3.5m) will start as Spain’s centre-forward. Gerard Moreno (£3.0m) could start alongside the Juventus striker as he’s equally comfortable playing from the right.

Denmark really are very solid. A double pivot of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Thomas Delaney sits in front of accomplished centre-backs Andreas Christensen (£3.0m) and Simon Kjaer (£3.0m) who in turn protect Kasper Schmeichel (£3.0m).

You can forget the midfielders but the others could be very smart options. Denmark play Finland first up – that fixture screams clean sheet for the Danes.

Christian Eriksen is also a potentially savvy selection

Kevin De Bruyne (£6.0m) is expected to miss Belgium’s first game against Russia. Plenty of you have cottoned on to this already but he still has a sizeable ownership of 34.2%.

Wait until the assist-loving playmaker is available for selection and then, by all means, pile in.

It’s a coin flip between Tim Krul (£3.0m) and Maarten Stekelenburg (£2.5m) in terms of Netherlands’ first-choice stopper.

No need to gamble. Play it safe, choose another keeper, and wait to see who Franck de Boer prefers with a view to possibly changing tact in week two.

These are the top ten most-popular players at this stage:

  1. Harry Kane (£7.5m) – 58.8%
  2. Romelu Lukaku (£6.0m) – 49.3%
  3. Kylian Mbappe (£7.5m) – 46.5%
  4. Bruno Fernandes (£6.0m) – 39.4%
  5. Phil Foden (£4.0m) – 34.8%
  6. Kevin De Bruyne (£6.0m) – 34.2%
  7. Cristiano Ronaldo (£7.0m) – 30.2%
  8. Ruben Dias (£5.0m) – 28.2%
  9. Joao Cancelo (£4.0m) – 24.1%
  10. Thibaut Courtois (£4.0m) – 22.3%
