SORARE CHAMPION EUROPE LEAGUES

Remember to make the most of our Sorare sign-up offer and obtain free Sorare cards to start your managerial career if you haven’t created an account yet. Don’t forget to read our in-depth Sorare tutorial for beginners as well before making any investment.

Now, before we start scouting for the biggest stars on the platform, let’s briefly go through each league that the Champion division covers as of 2023.

Player cards from the following leagues are qualified to compete in the Sorare Champion Europe tournament:

As you can already tell, the Champion Europe division is dedicated to the so-called “Big 5” of Europe.

What is important to note, your player cards from teams competing in any of the aforementioned leagues which have matches in European tournaments like the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and UEFA Conference League, are also eligible to be fielded in your lineups.

In other words, you may still field your players in the Sorare Champion Europe division for a specific Game Week if the Game Week doesn’t have any Serie A matches but your team, let’s say Napoli, has a Champions League fixture against Ajax.

As of now, Sorare doesn’t have separate competitions designed exclusively for UEFA fixtures hence the Champions League, Europa League, and Conference League are covered by cards from Champion Europe & Challenger Europe teams.

Let’s now examine the Sorare Champion Europe division’s top-performing player cards.

Please note: the post is based on the average scores from the previous 40 Game Weeks in order to provide you with the most accurate and secure advice. By doing this, we reduce the likelihood of investing in players who are now going through a purple patch and might take a considerable dip in form soon after the purchase.

Writing this content wouldn’t have been as smooth without SorareData, our favorite Sorare software by a considerable margin.

Champion Europe Goalkeepers

Choosing the best goalie can make or break your lineup, as any seasoned Sorare manager can tell you.

It’s also no secret that goalkeepers in Sorare generally cost more than outfielders. That’s because they are far more difficult to find (the majority of teams only have one to two goalies they consider to be on their “first team”).

It’s usually a good idea to take into account keepers who are part of powerful teams in their respective leagues.

That’s because the key to your eventual success is not conceding many goals, and not giving up any goals is even better since goalies receive a +25 Decisive Score when they preserve a clean sheet.

🏆 Best Overall – Mike Maignan 🏆

After missing a large part of the season due to the injury he sustained in September’s clash between France & Austria, Mike Maignan has been back between the sticks at AC Milan and the national team and regularly delivery outstanding, often dark green scores in SO5.

Hence, it’s not a surprise he’s our go-to choice when it comes to the Champion Europe division in 2023 – now and probably for many years to come as well.

Mike Maignan scores

Maignan made his professional debut for the French Ligue 1 club Lille OSC in 2015 and quickly established himself as one of the most promising goalkeepers in Europe. During his time at Lille, he helped the team to win the French league title in the 2020-2021 season, playing a crucial role in their success.

In the summer of 2021, Maignan signed a five-year contract with AC Milan, where he has quickly become a key player for the team. He has been praised for his excellent shot-stopping ability, commanding presence in the penalty area, and outstanding reflexes. Maignan’s performances have been crucial to Milan’s strong defensive record in the 2021-2022 season, helping the team win the first-in-many-years Serie A title.

Maignan is expected to continue to impress both at AC Milan and in the French national team for years to come, making him one of the safest top-tier goalkeeper investments on the platform.

Looking at his outstanding SO5 scores (L5 – 62, L15 – 65, L40 – 62), long utility (he’s still just 27), and playing for a top team in the division, it’s no surprise Maignan cards are quite pricey. At the time of writing, you can expect to pay around $220 for his Limited card, for Rare – $1,600, for Super Rare – $9,400, and Unique – $48,000.

💰 Great Value – Emi Martinez 💰

Emi Martinez overview

Emi Martinez, the Argentinian shot-stopper, has emerged as a formidable presence between the goalposts for Aston Villa. With his exceptional reflexes, commanding presence, and unwavering determination, the 2022 World Champion has quickly established himself as one of the Premier League’s most reliable and accomplished goalkeepers.

Born in 1992, in Mar del Plata, Argentina, Martinez’s journey to the top of English football has been one of resilience and hard work. He began his professional career with Club Atlético Independiente in his native country before making his move to Europe in 2010, signing with the English Premier League giants, Arsenal.

Despite his immense talent, Martinez initially found it challenging to secure a consistent starting position at Arsenal, often playing second fiddle.

In September 2020, after helping guide Arsenal to FA Cup success, Aston Villa secured his services in a deal that saw him become the club’s record signing for a goalkeeper. Since joining Villa, he has been a vital cog in their defensive setup, showcasing his shot-stopping prowess and commanding the penalty area.

Emi Martinez scores

Despite Villa not being a Top 4 or even a Top 6 team in England, Martinez often delivers green-to-dark green scores, making him one of the best-value Champion Europe picks in 2023.

Martinez averages 58 in his L5, 56 in his L15, and 52 in his L40. Considering the mid-table status of his club, these are super-solid scores.

When it comes to his current valuation, his cards are available at the following price points:

  • Limited – $41
  • Rare – $510
  • Super Rare – $2,700
  • Unique – $18,900

Emi Martinez’s contributions of late have been nothing short of exceptional, with his ability to make crucial saves and provide leadership at the back. His performances have earned him recognition on the international stage, representing the Argentina national team and playing a significant role in their recent success in Qatar.

As Martinez continues to display his shot-stopping brilliance and cement his place among the Premier League’s elite goalkeepers, Aston Villa fans and Sorare card holders can rest assured knowing they have a reliable and formidable last line of defense guarding their goal for years to come.

🏁 Low-Budget Starter – Frederik Rønnow 🏁

Frederik Ronnow overview

Frederik Rønnow has become an integral part of Union Berlin since his arrival at the club. Born on August 4, 1992, in Horsens, Denmark, Rønnow’s heroics in 2022/2023 have seen Union become an unlikely contender for the Bundesliga title.

Rønnow’s early career began in the youth ranks of Danish club AC Horsens, where he honed his skills and caught the attention of scouts across Europe. In 2014, he made a significant move to Danish Superliga side Esbjerg fB, where he quickly established himself as a reliable shot-stopper. Rønnow’s impressive performances earned him recognition and a transfer to Brøndby IF in 2016, where he further solidified his reputation as one of Denmark’s top goalkeepers.

In 2018, Rønnow’s talent attracted the interest of the German club Eintracht Frankfurt, and he made his way to the Bundesliga. During his time at Frankfurt, Rønnow showcased his exceptional reflexes, agility, and commanding presence in the penalty area, earning plaudits from fans and pundits alike.

In 2021, Rønnow made a switch to Union Berlin, seeking new challenges and opportunities to excel. The move to the German capital allowed him to continue his growth as a goalkeeper and provided him with a platform to showcase his skills in one of Europe’s most competitive leagues.

Frederik Ronnow scores

Apart from a few blips, his performances in the 2022/2023 campaign have seen plenty of green SO5 scores. He averages 58 points in L5, 51 in L15, and 55 in L40.

Because of this and his current price tag (Limited – $33, Rare – $456, Super Rare – $2,028, Unique – $3,468), Frederik is our top low-budget starter in the position.

As seen in the clip above, Rønnow possesses excellent shot-stopping abilities, quick reflexes, and outstanding distribution skills. Moreover, his strong leadership qualities make him a crucial figure in organizing the defensive line and instilling confidence in his teammates.

As he continues to make his mark in Union Berlin’s goal, fans and football enthusiasts eagerly anticipate his performances and the impact he will have on the club’s future endeavors. With his talent, experience, and unwavering commitment, Rønnow, especially with his current price tag, is a very tasty option for the Champion Europe division on Sorare.

Champion Europe Defenders

Although giving up a goal is not the end of the world for defenders because they may make up for it with other Decisive contributions, it is still preferable to target the players from teams that don’t concede many goals or belong to the top-tier teams in the division.

Keep in mind that defender cards receive a 10-point boost for clean sheets.

🏆 Best Overall – Raphaël Guerreiro 🏆

Raphaël Guerreiro overview

Raphaël Guerreiro has established himself as a crucial component of the Borussia Dortmund squad since joining the German club in 2016. Born on December 22, 1993, in Le Blanc-Mesnil, France, Guerreiro’s journey in football has been nothing short of impressive.

The versatile Portuguese footballer’s standout performances in the 2016 UEFA European Championship truly propelled Guerreiro into the international spotlight. Representing Portugal, he played a pivotal role in their triumph, helping his nation secure their first major international trophy. His remarkable displays not only demonstrated his defensive qualities but also his skills in scoring crucial goals and providing key assists.

Skills and qualities which continue to help him deliver ridiculous SO5 scores on Sorare.

Raphaël Guerreiro scores

Since joining the Bundesliga giants after the Euro 2016 heroics, he has been a consistent performer and a key figure in Dortmund’s backline. Guerreiro’s technical abilities, intelligent positioning, and blistering pace also make him a formidable force going forward, often leading to Decisive Actions resulting in dark green scores. This season alone, Guerreiro has already delivered three maximum (one hundred) scores!

Without a doubt, Guerreiro’s adaptability has been a valuable asset for Dortmund, as he has demonstrated his effectiveness in multiple positions, including left-back, left midfielder, and central midfield.

Averaging pretty ridiculous SO5 scores (L5 – 77, L15 – 77(!), L40 – 65), his current price tag (Limited – $35, Rare – $415, Super Rare – $1897, Unique – $12,000) is really low – but not without a reason. Guerreiro’s contract with Dortmund expires in the summer of 2023 and the noises are that he won’t be signing an extension so his next step is pretty much a guess right now.

One of the teams that’s been heavily linked with the player is Leeds United. If this move indeed comes to fruition, Guerreiro’s scores are likely to take a considerable dip so please take that into consideration before deciding on the purchase.

💰 Great Value – Giovanni Di Lorenzo 💰

Giovanni di Lorenzo overview

Giovanni Di Lorenzo, hailing from soon-to-be Serie A champions Napoli, is a dynamic and talented football player known for his exceptional versatility and unwavering commitment on the field.

Born in 1993, Di Lorenzo began his youth career at Matera, a local club in southern Italy, before making his senior debut with Barletta in 2013. His impressive performances soon caught the attention of larger clubs, and in 2015, he joined Empoli, where he truly began to flourish.

As a right-back by trade, Di Lorenzo possesses remarkable defensive qualities, including solid tackling, excellent positional awareness, and an innate ability to read the game. What sets him apart, however, is his ability to contribute in the attacking third. With his exceptional speed, accurate crossing, and a keen eye for goal, he often functions as an additional attacking outlet for his team.

In 2019, Di Lorenzo’s exceptional performances at Empoli caught the eye of Napoli, one of Italy’s most prestigious clubs, and he joined them with high expectations. Since his arrival at Napoli, he has consistently impressed fans and pundits alike with his exceptional work rate and determination.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo scores

In the 2022/2023 campaign, Napoli’s imminent triumph has a lot to do with their strong performances at the back – to which Di Lorenzo has been a massive contributor. Very rarely delivering anything less than a green score (with many dark greens along the way!), the Italian is our go-to value pick if you’re looking for some serious defensive reinforcements.

Averaging 52 in the last 5 Gameweeks, 56 in the last 15, and 15 in the last 40, the cost of Di Lorenzo cards is really reasonable. The Limited version of the card can be snatched for $19, Rare – for $300, Super Rare – for $2,200, and Unique for $5,475.

Last but not least, it’s also worth pointing out that Di Lorenzo is one of few players on the platform who hasn’t missed a single game in the last 40 fixtures so he’s a highly dependable SO5 player.

As Giovanni Di Lorenzo continues to make strides in his career, his versatility, defensive prowess, and attacking contributions make him an integral part of Napoli’s success and a player worth keeping a close eye on in the world of Sorare fantasy football.

🏁 Low-Budget Starter – Danilho Doekhi 🏁

Danilo Doekhi overview

Danilho Doekhi has emerged as a defensive stalwart for Union Berlin in recent years. Standing at an impressive height of 6 feet 4 inches (193 cm), Doekhi possesses a commanding presence that makes him a formidable force in the heart of Union Berlin’s defense.

Born in 1998, in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Doekhi began his footballing journey in the youth academy of his hometown club, Feyenoord. Blessed with exceptional athleticism and a natural talent for reading the game, Doekhi quickly rose through the ranks, showcasing his potential as a dominant defender.

In 2017, Doekhi made his professional debut for Vitesse Arnhem, a Dutch Eredivisie club. His consistent performances at the back caught the attention of Union Berlin and in the summer of 2020, the capital club secured Doekhi’s services, signing him on a long-term contract.

Since joining Union, Doekhi – along with the aforementioned Frederik Rønnow – has proven to be a vital cog in their defensive setup. With his aerial prowess, physicality, and excellent positional sense, he excels in winning headers and intercepting opposing attacks. Doekhi’s ability to initiate attacks from the back with accurate distribution has also added another dimension to Union Berlin’s play.

Danilho Doekhi scores

Throughout the 2022/2023 Bundesliga campaign, the majority of Doekhi’s scores oscillate in the green-to-dark green spectrum (L5 – 51, L15 – 52, L40 – 59) which makes his affordable cost even more mouth-watering.

As of now, Deokhi’s Limiteds are available for around $7, Rares – $90, Super Rares – $660, and Uniques – $2,400.

As Union Berlin continues to make strides in the Bundesliga, Danilho Doekhi’s contributions at the heart of their defense will undoubtedly play a significant role in their quest for success.

And with the club more than likely to qualify for next season’s European football, getting your hands on a Danilho card will also mean additional utility during midweek competitions.

Champion Europe Midfielders

It goes without saying that you should look for players that don’t let up a lot of goals and frequently record clean sheets when recruiting defensive reinforcements.

However, while putting together the other half of your lineup, starting with midfielders, it’s essential to shift your attention to creative and attack-oriented teams.

Remember that a forward-thinking midfielder will often give you more points than a defensive one since he has a higher likelihood of making crucial contributions, such as goals or assists.

🏆 Best Overall – Joshua Kimmich 🏆

Joshua Kimmich overview

It goes without saying that Joshua Kimmich has emerged as one of the most versatile and impactful footballers of his generation.

Kimmich was born in 1995 and is known for his exceptional technical skills, tactical awareness, and unwavering determination, over the years becoming a linchpin for both club and country. Primarily deployed as a central midfielder, he possesses an innate ability to control the game’s tempo, distribute the ball with pinpoint accuracy, and make incisive forward runs.

What truly sets Kimmich apart is his versatility. He seamlessly transitions between multiple positions, effortlessly slotting in as a right-back when needed, showcasing his defensive prowess and aptitude for overlapping runs. This adaptability has made him an indispensable asset for Bayern Munich, allowing his team to maintain a fluid and dynamic style of play.

Having joined Bayern in 2015, Kimmich has played a pivotal role in the club’s continued dominance, contributing to numerous domestic and international triumphs. His list of achievements includes multiple Bundesliga titles, DFB-Pokal victories, and a UEFA Champions League crown.

Slowly but surely approaching a legend status at the Bavarian giants, we can safely say that Joshua is already a legend when it comes to the world of Sorare football.

I mean, let’s look at these simply ridiculous scores.

Joshua Kimmich scores

Kimmich’s averages in the Last 5 (76), Last 15 (72), and Last 40 (70) mean that he’s pretty much untouchable when it comes to the midfield players in the Sorare Champion Europe division. But his cost is also way higher than that of any other midfielders on the platform.

At the time of writing, his Limited card will set you back around $293, Rare – $3,000, Super Rare – $15,600, and Unique – $10,000.

With a tireless work ethic and an insatiable hunger for success, Joshua Kimmich epitomizes the modern-day footballer. As he continues to make his mark on the game, his influence and impact on the field remain an awe-inspiring sight for football enthusiasts worldwide.

If you’re lucky enough to be in a position of being able to acquire Kimmich, he will for sure play a massive role in helping you finish high in the weekly leaderboards.

Finally, apart from being a great player to use during weekends, remember that Kimmich is just as likely to shine during midweek Champions League fixtures.

💰 Great Value – Toni Kroos 💰

Toni Kroos overview

Toni Kroos, the maestro of the midfield as he’s widely referred to in Spain, currently plies his trade for the mighty Real Madrid. Born in 1990, in Greifswald, Germany, Kroos has established himself as one of the most talented and influential midfielders of his generation.

Known for his exceptional vision, precise passing, and remarkable ball control, Kroos possesses an innate ability to dictate the tempo of the game from the center of the pitch. His exceptional range of passing allows him to effortlessly spray accurate long balls and unlock opposing defenses with pinpoint through balls. Kroos is equally adept at breaking up opposition plays with his intelligent positioning and well-timed tackles.

Kroos embarked on his professional career at a young age, joining the Bayern Munich youth academy. He quickly rose through the ranks, making his senior debut for the club in 2007. His impressive performances caught the attention of the footballing world, leading him to earn a move to Real Madrid in 2014.

Toni Kroos scores

Since his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, Kroos has been an integral part of Real Madrid’s success, playing a pivotal role in their triumphs in domestic and international competitions. With his calm demeanor and impeccable technique, Kroos has won numerous trophies, including multiple UEFA Champions League titles and La Liga crowns.

And despite being available at a fraction of the price of his compatriot Kimmich (Limited – $19, Rare – $238, Super Rare – $1,063, Unique – $9,300), his SO5 scores (L5 – 62, L10 – 63, L15 – 65) make him an outstanding value Sorare Champion Europe midfielder.

In conclusion, Toni Kroos is an extraordinary SO5 midfielder who has left an indelible mark on the footballing world. With his unrivaled passing ability and tactical intelligence, he continues to enchant audiences with his mesmerizing performances, solidifying his status as one of the game’s true midfield maestros.

April 2023 update: Toni Kroos has decided to extend his contract with Real until the end of the 2023/2024 campaign, meaning another 12 months of solid Sorare scores.

🏁 Low-Budget Starter – Pascal Gross 🏁

Pascal Gross overview

Pascal Gross, a name that resonates within the realms of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club but not many others, is a talented German professional footballer (yes, a third German midfielder!) who has established himself as a key player for the Seagulls.

Born in 1991 in Mannheim, Gross’s journey in the world of football has been slow but steady, with his biggest progress in terms of performances attributed to the 2022/2023 Premier League campaign.

Gross’s passion for the beautiful game began at a young age, and his dedication and skills on the field quickly caught the attention of scouts. He made his professional debut for Karlsruher SC in 2008, where he honed his abilities and showcased his creative flair as an attacking midfielder before joining Brighton in 2017.

Known for his technical proficiency, vision, and ability to thread incisive passes, Gross has played a pivotal role in Brighton’s recent success, contributing goals, assists, and exceptional performances that endeared him to the club’s faithful supporters.

Pascal Gross scores

Despite playing in a mid-table team (no offense, Brighton fans), Gross’ performances have been far from gross!

In fact, the German has been delivering some of the most stable scores in the Premier League, averaging 62 in L5, 59 in L15, and 58 in L40. He has also started all but one of his team’s last 40 fixtures, making him not only a solid performer but also a guaranteed starter – all of that at a tempting price as well!

At the time of writing, Gross’s cards are listed at the following price points:

  • Limited – $13
  • Rare – $109
  • Super Rare – $715

A Unique card hasn’t been minted for the player yet.

As the Seagulls plan to keep striving for continuous improvement in the English top flight, Pascal Gross remains a pivotal figure that is likely to keep delivering solid SO5 scores.

Having signed a contract extension with the Seagulls in April 2023, he’s likely to remain a Champion Europe division player for a couple of years more.

Champion Europe Strikers

While it is undoubtedly true that you should construct your squad from the back, we always find scouting the forwards to be the most enjoyable.

Simply said, they’re more fascinating and enjoyable to watch!

It should go without saying that if you want to maximize your chances of receiving Sorare rewards, you should target top players on teams that typically dominate their games.

🏆 Best Overall – Lionel Messi 🏆

Lionel Messi overview

Lionel Messi, widely regarded as one of the greatest football players of all time, is a true Sorare maestro whose talent, skill, and unwavering determination have left an indelible mark on the beautiful game.

Born in 1987, in Rosario, Argentina, Messi displayed an innate passion for football from a young age. He quickly rose through the ranks, dazzling fans and experts alike with his mesmerizing dribbling, exceptional vision, and knack for scoring spectacular goals.

Messi’s journey to superstardom began when he joined FC Barcelona’s famed La Masia youth academy at the age of 13. It was here that he honed his skills and developed his unique style of play, characterized by his low center of gravity, lightning-quick acceleration, and unrivaled ball control.

Over the years, he has become synonymous with Barcelona, spending the majority of his professional career at the club and capturing the hearts of millions of fans around the world.

Throughout his illustrious career, Messi has shattered numerous records, winning an astonishing number of individual awards, including seven Ballon d’Or titles. He has played a pivotal role in Barcelona’s success, leading the club to numerous domestic and international triumphs, including multiple UEFA Champions League titles and countless domestic league victories.

And although his current stint at Paris Saint-Germain has been far from perfect – and it looks very likely that Messi will be moving on in the summer of 2023 – the Argentinian magician is still the best card a Sorare manager can have, not only when it comes to forwards but in general.

By quite some distance, the Argentinian is the player that delivers the most “100s” on the platform, with as many as eight perfect score performances in the last year, with quite a few scores above 90 sandwiched in between as well.

Lionel Messi scores

Looking at the averages, they are unmatchable as well. He averages 72 points in the last 5 games, 75 points in the last 15 games, and a crazy-looking 77 points in the last 40 games.

If there ever was a perfect time to buy a Messi card, it is probably now. With his future hanging in the balance, the prices across all scarcities have taken a considerable dip in the last few weeks. At the time of writing, they are as follows:

  • Limited – $119
  • Rare – $1,160
  • Super Rare – $6,990
  • Unique – $45,900

While some might see Messi’s cards as heavily undervalued, others will argue that the drop makes total sense since there have been heavy rumors of Messi following in the footsteps of his arch-rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, and joining the Saudi Arabian League.

As things stand, the football played in Saudi Arabia is not covered by Sorare, meaning that Messi’s scores would count for nothing and the card would lose its utility.

On the other hand, people who think investing in a Messi card is still a great idea will have high hopes that his fairy-tale return to Barcelona will come to fruition during the summer transfer window and he will remain the go-to Sorare Champion Europe player.

In our opinion, buying a Messi card is a high risk but at the same time potentially a really high reward move.

💰 Great Value – Karim Benzema 💰

Karim Benzema overview

Another player who doesn’t need any introduction is Karim Benzema, easily regarded as one of the most talented strikers of his generation.

Born in 1987 in France, Benzema’s journey to footballing stardom began at a young age. Blessed with exceptional technical skills, clinical finishing ability, and remarkable vision on the field, he quickly caught the attention of scouts and coaches.

Benzema’s professional career kicked off in 2004 when he made his debut for Olympique Lyonnais, a club he had joined as a youth player. His impressive performances in the French top-flight league earned him recognition as a rising star, leading to his transfer to the Spanish giants Real Madrid in 2009.

Since then, he has become a mainstay in the illustrious white jersey, achieving numerous accolades and cementing his status as one of Real Madrid’s all-time greats.

Known for his versatility, Benzema has the ability to play as a central striker or drop deep to link up play with his teammates. His exceptional technical skills, composure in front of goal, and intelligent movement make him a constant threat to opposition defenses. He has consistently delivered remarkable performances, scoring crucial goals and providing key assists in both domestic and international competitions.

Karim Benzema scores

Although he might not deliver scores above 90 as often as Messi, he still does that on a fairly regular basis considering his much more affordable cost.

His L40 score of 63 proves he’s still an incredibly consistent striker delivering great performances for arguably the strongest team in world football. And despite his latest injury woes, his L5 score is still 58 and L15 – 59, meaning he can deliver your Champion Europe line-up much-needed forward points most Game Weeks.

With a decorated career that includes multiple league titles, domestic cups, and four UEFA Champions League triumphs, Karim Benzema’s impact on the footballing world is undeniable. He continues to captivate fans and inspire aspiring players with his exceptional skills and unwavering passion for the game.

And because of that passion, he’s likely to prolong his stay at Real Madrid for one additional season (until the summer of 2024), meaning that his current price tags (Limited – $35, Rare – $341, Super Rare – $2,066, Unique – $12,500) sound more than reasonable.

🏁 Low-Budget Starter – Marvin Ducksch 🏁

Marvin Ducksch overview

Marvin Ducksch is a professional football player born in 1993 in Germany, known for his prolific goal-scoring ability and versatility in the attacking positions.

Ducksch’s professional career took off when he joined Borussia Dortmund’s youth academy, where he honed his skills and showcased his potential. His impressive performances caught the attention of the footballing world, leading to his promotion to Borussia Dortmund II, the club’s reserve team, in 2012.

In the following years, Ducksch embarked on loan spells to various clubs, including Paderborn and Holstein Kiel, where he made a significant impact. It was during his time at Holstein Kiel that Ducksch truly made a name for himself, consistently finding the back of the net and establishing himself as one of the most promising strikers in German football.

His impressive goal-scoring form earned him a move to Fortuna Düsseldorf in 2018, and then to Hannover 96 the following year, where he continued to excel, adding more goals to his tally. Ducksch’s ability to score from various positions and his intelligent movement off the ball has always made him a potent threat in the final third which eventually led him to join his current Bundesliga employer, Werder Bremen.

Marvin Ducksch scores

Despite the indifferent season of his team, Ducksch’s form has been really solid, leading to quite a few dark green scores, and even one “100” performance.

Considering his low price tag (Limited – $10, Rare – $125, Super Rare – $600, Unique – $3,500), his performances in the division have been really on point.

Ducksh averages 56 in his L5, 57 in his L10, and a very impressive 59 score in his L40 fixtures.

While the Werder Bremen striker might not place you on the podium of the Sorare Champion Europe division very often, when aligned with the right players in extra positions, he will certainly help you win rewards throughout the season.

Pretty much guaranteed a start anytime he’s fit, the prolific German is a great low-risk purchase for the division.

Sorare Champion Europe Stacks

Last but not least, it’s certainly worth touching on the controversial subject of the Sorare stacking strategy while competing in the Champion Europe competition.

But what is a Sorare stack exactly?

When a manager decides to select every player from the same team in his SO5 line-up, this is known as a stack.

If you choose 5 players from 2 clubs, such as a 4 Player / 1 Player split or 3 Player / 2 Player split, certain managers may also classify it as a stack.

However, for the purpose of this article, let’s categorize a stack as a complete team from a single club.

PSG's Champion Europe stack
Paris Saint-Germain 2022/2023 stack

Managers stack on Sorare because doing so can make winning a reward card simpler than it would be otherwise. Building a lineup around a team like PSG, Napoli, or Manchester City can increase your chances of earning prizes. It’s not as easy as just choosing players, though.

It will not make sense to buy players who will be substitutes or score poorly, therefore you must make sure that the guys in your starting lineup are the team’s dominant players.

For example, make sure to choose the likes of Mbappe, Messi, and Donnarumma when assembling a successful PSG stack.

Napoli Champion Europe Stack
Napoli 2022/2023 stack

Although a Sorare stack is probably going to produce results, with the rising popularity of this strategy, there will frequently be a fierce rivalry for the highest places on the leaderboard. It will be more difficult to finish on the podium as a result.

Your choice of captain will also make or break your lineup. As more players are employing stacks, you can lose out if you select a captain who doesn’t maximize your point scoring. This could get irritating.

Manchester City stack
Manchester City stack

Additionally, using Sorare stacks to play is rather pricey. As you are building your team around mostly premium players, you should prepare to spend more as well.
