RealBarce tops Fantasy Liga

With two of the 10 midweek fixtures left out in the cold, so to speak, gameweek 26 turned out to be an unexpectedly high scoring round for some of the Cellcard Fantasy League managers.

Tottenham’s 4-0 rout of Newcastle paved the way for the round’s top performance in Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor, whose two goals and assist converted to 16 fantasy points.

Liverpool’s five-goal thriller with Fulham also provided some star turns, as Daniel Sturridge set up a pair and scored another himself to notch up 15 points.

West Ham defender James Collins also amassed 15 points via his goal and clean sheet against Norwich.

The weekly competition was won in some style by Bunroeun Smok and his team RealBarce with 98 points.

Bunroeun was oh so close to an impressive century thanks to a captain’s choice of Sturridge for 30 points, as well as four other Dream team selections in Adebayor, Southampton’s Jose Fonte (14 points), Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard (11) and Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic (10).

Bunroeun deservedly collects the Cellcard prizes of a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt.

Another man bagging a $20 phone voucher is Facebook user Serepan Kong, who correctly guessed that the Arsenal v Man United game would end goalless.

Serepan was the lucky one picked from a handful of users who posted 0-0 for the result on Cellcard’s Fantasy fanapage.

Following this weekend’s break for FA Cup fixtures, Gameweek 27 will be stuffed inside next weekend, with Mother Nature hopefully granting respite from the recent torrid weather conditions.
