MARQUEE MATCHUPS

 

Ajax vs Feyenoord

First up this week we head over to Holland where we find the Eredivisie. Ajax play hosts to rivals Feyenoord in a heated derby known only as “De Klassieker”. This is the largest derby in the Netherlands, dating back around 100 years and was formed due to a rivalry of cities between Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Investments here are nice and simple due to the excess supply of gold players for both sides.


Pumas UNAM vs America

Next up we head over to Mexico and the LIGA Bancomer MX. One of the fiercest rivalries in Mexico sees two of the three sides from the Mexico City area go head to head in a derby known only as “Classico Capitalino”. Once again, we have quite a lot of gold cards available here, but if prices begin to rise, don’t be afraid to pick up a few silvers for discard.


Puebla vs Veracruz

Next on the list sees a second game from the Mexican league pop up, and while we are mentioning both, remember we will only see one at most. Puebla play hosts to Veracruz in a derby known as “El Clasico Del Sur” and while both games won’t appear together, having players from all four teams definitely cannot hurt.


Inter Milan vs Roma

Next up we head across to Italy where we find a huge match between two of the top clubs, Inter Milan and Roma. While it may not be a derby per say, with Champions league places so tight, and just 3 points separating the two clubs, this is a game of huge importance. Investments are simple, gold, discard, highest rating possible. 


Lyon vs PSG

Over to France now and once again it isn’t a derby, but two of the top teams in the league going head to head in a heated match. PSG currently sit atop the table, 9 points clear of third place Lyon. A win here for the hosts would see that gap lowered to just 6 points and allow them to really start increasing the pressure. Again, investments are simple and should be gold players here.


Leeds vs Millwall

Next up we move across to England’s second division, the Championship, where we find Leeds playing hosts to Millwall. Now this was not a derby I was initially aware of, however thanks to a bunch of people messaging me, it received a mention in these predictions. Due to the size and stature of this, personally I still don’t foresee it being included, however it’s one of those games that is worth covering with investments, just in case. 


Gent vs Lokeren

For our final pick of the week we head over to Belgium and the Pro League where we find Gent playing hosts to Lokeren in the “East Flanders Derby”. Investments here are once again nice and simple, there is a large enough supply of gold players but if they do begin to rise, don’t be afraid of silver’s at discard again.
