Last time we checked on Manchester United in the previous Derby Challenge, they were in 2nd place, and it seems that hasn’t changed. They have yet to climb up to 1st place, even though they haven’t lost a game since then (though they did suffer a draw). But it seems Manchester City is protecting the top spot like a dog does with its precious bone. The Red Devils are determined, they play at home and they want to win. It seems the ingredients are gathered to make them a formidable opponent that won’t go down without a fight.

Liverpool, currently sitting in 6th place, is trying to climb the ladder. 54 points made of 15 wins 9 draws and 9 losses. It won’t be easy, as their opponents have shown enough of a stellar performance to be able to protect the 2nd spot for a while now, not to mention that they will be hosting the game, and playing in uncharted territory always adds to the challenge. If the Reds want to shorten the distance to the top 3, they will have to bring their A game.

Get some popcorn, this match is going to be promising! Who is going to win this Derby Challenge? Manchester United or Liverpool? Find out on Sunday at 16h30 (GMT).

  • Manchester United or Liverpool?
  • David de Gea or Alisson Becker?
  • Harry Maguire or Andrew Robertson?
  • Bruno Fernandes or Georginio Wijnaldum?
  • Mason Greenwood or Mohamed Salah?

Before you fly away, here’s the initial promo Derby Challenge article that will give you all the explanations and rules:

Derby Challenge: a new game model, much like a Daily Fantasy, where you compete in a single event, creating a team for a specific game (or two, max), with limited choices and all the adrenaline just jam-packed into 90 minutes.

In more practical terms, to play RealFevr’s newest competition Derby Challenge you’ll need to create a new team when one is announced (Derby Challenge is not always available) and the most common rules of Classic Leagues will apply here (auto-subs, manual subs, scoring, leaderboards, etc) and will run side-by-side with their “core competitions”, Liga NOS Virtual, England Fantasy and other options available at RealFevr. On top, there will be a leaderboard for the sum of all the Derby Challenges throughout the season.

In spite of the majority of rules being the same as the classic mode of England Fantasy, there are some specific Derby Challenge rules that you must be aware of, we will state them here:

A player is only able to register one team on Derby Challenge league;

The player will have a maximum budget of 120M;

There are no limit of players from each club to make your team;

To use the “automatic replacements” feature, you can only make changes on your team 15 minutes before de beginning of the (first) match of Derby challenge. After that time, the feature will be disabled;

The price of players opposite of England Fantasy league (that is a continuous duration competition), won’t have price variations during the season.

Good luck,

The RealFevr Team
