Lionel Messi, BCN at PSV (€29): The forward pool is complicated for Wednesday's slate, mostly because of the Paris Saint-Germain v. Liverpool match, which has a bunch of excellent attacking players in the game with the highest implied goal total, and they're all cheaper than Messi. However, taking players from that match means you're fading Messi, or possibly forwards from Napoli, who are hosting FK Crvena Zvezda, or those from Borussia Dortmund, who are home against Club Brugge. Messi is the only one playing away, but he's also a player who has gotten on the scoresheet at least once in all but two matches this season, averaging 5.17 shots, including 2.27 on goal, per 90 minutes, and he has five goals on 12 shots (eight on target) in two Champions League matches, including a hat trick against PSV in the reverse fixture (he missed time with an injury, which is why his UCL sample is smaller than others). You're obviously paying up for him, and he's away, but he's also facing a PSV side that plays in a league with a greater focus on scoring goals than defending them.
