Arsenal finds themselves drifting in the numbers like a discarded piece of wood in the ocean. They are sitting in 11th place with 11 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses. Coming from a disappointing draw against Burnley, combining that with a recent sequence of good matches by Tottenham, they will have to up their game for this next match. They play at home, and with that comes a certain motivation that The Gunners can exploit.

Although Tottenham is not dominating the scoreboard, being 6th place with 13 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses, they are brimming with confidence. They have a team in an excellent form, with a few players that really stand out in the competition as deadly opponents, such as Gareth Bale and Harry Kane, the latter having been called “one of the best current attackers”. The Spurs are deadly, so their rivals better watch out.

The North London Derby is going to be a fight for the top, with both teams eager to escape the bottom of the scoreboard and attempt to reach the top 4 and qualify for the next season’s Champions League. The Spurs have reunited all the ingredients to become a formidable foe, especially match against the string of mistakes The Gunners keep showing.

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
