Freiburg 0-0 Leverkusen 5 Saves
Porto played hosts to Braga for their weekend clash and in a game of 4 goals, they left as comfortable 3-1 winners. Telles at the back was the star of the show, putting in a solid defensive performance as well as assisting each and every goal for Porto. Surely this is enough for a second Inform.
Benfica played hosts to Rio Ave for their weekend fixture and after a dominating display, they left as 5-1 victors. Jardel is our selection from the match, solid defensively, an assist and even a goal to his name, is surely enough for an Inform this week.
In the first round of Premier League fixtures this week Bournemouth were way to Chelsea in a game most expected them to lose. Thanks to some fantastic tactics, attacking plays and solid defensive showings, Bournemouth left as 3-0 winners. Ake not only ensured a clean sheet, but also scored one of the goals against his former club!
Juventus were at home to Sassuolo on the weekend and their 7-0 thrashing is worthy of not just one, but two possible informs. First up we have Sandro, solid at the back as always alongside an assist and a goal to his name this week.
What more can be said about this man, recently voted into the FUT TOTY and without question one of the best players in the world. When Manchester City beat West Brom 3-0, once again this man was not only assisting but getting his name on the scoresheet. Hopefully this is enough for another Inform.
Real Sociedad were hosts to Deportivo for their La Liga clash and in a dominating display they wrapped up all 3 points in a 5-0 win. Illarramendi was the man of the match, scoring twice and putting in a near perfect performance to secure his spot in these predictions.
Arsenal have really been struggling as of late and with the recent departure of Alexis, people were starting to question their abilities. In a 5-1 thrashing at home to Everton, they silenced all doubters, which is why we are not one but two Arsenal players in these predictions as well. First up is Ramsey, with a hat-trick there is simply no chance he is left out!
From one hat-trick to another, but this time we are in Ligue 1 for a match between Marseille and Metz. In a game of 9 goals, it was the hosts to took the points in a 6-3 showing. Thauvin not only assisted one but went on to score three. Outstanding.
One of the most successful signings of the year finds his name on our predictions once more. Liverpool drew 2-2 with Tottenham on the weekend in a game full of controversy and surprises. Two incredible goals, including a fantastic solo effort by this man almost won the points, only to be denied by a penalty in the final seconds. The only question is, will 2 goals in a draw be enough?
After last year, we came to expect this man to be Inform almost every week however a tougher season has left him with just the one special card to date. This however is about to change! As mentioned before, Juventus won 7-0 on the weekend and while everyone was fantastic, Higuain bagged himself a hat-trick.
Over to the Premier League again here where Crystal Palace were hosts to Newcastle. In an incredibly tight game neither team could edge ahead and with 7 saves Hennessy played a huge part in ensuring a 1-1 draw was maintained.
Braga were hosts to Aves for their fixture on the weekend and in a comfortable 2-0 victory they left with all the points. Silva at the back was the man who stood out, incredible at the back while also scoring one of the goals. A dream performance for a CB!
From one solid CB performance onto another now. Caen were 3-2 victors over the travelling Nantes during their Ligue 1 clash. Now while Silva may not have kept a clean sheet, his two goals going forward were critical in the victory and hence this CB makes the cut for his attacking display opposed to his defensive one!
Finally Debuchy managed to get away from Arsenal and get himself some minutes on the pitch. Saint-Etienne were away to Amiens for their weekend fixture and in a 2-0 victory, Debuchy not only helped maintain a clean sheet but also scored one of the goals too!
Our final defensive selection this week sees us head across to a side known commonly for their attacking success this year. PSG beat Lille 3-0 on the weekend and with a clean sheet and a goal to his name, Yuri is the man who makes the predictions.
Heading back to a couple of the earlier Premier League games now and first up we have Swansea’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal to talk about. In this incredible performance, Clucas was the man who stole the show. Scoring twice he secured the much needed points and hopefully a spot in this TOTW.
Everton were hosts to Leicester earlier in the week and thanks to one man, they managed to steal the points in a 2-1 victory. New summer signing Walcott was the man of the hour, scoring both goals in a near flawless performance.
Now we have already seen Ramsey feature in these predictions and with a hat-trick he is all but nailed on. During that same game however Mkhitaryan bagged himself a hat-trick of assists in an incredible performance. The question is, are EA generous enough to give us two players here?
It’s OTW players galore in these predictions, and to find the next one we head over to Germany. Dortmund we’re away to FC Cologne for their Bundesliga clash and in a 3-2 victory their new winter signing, on his debut, was the hero. With 2 goals and an assist for the third, surely Batshuayi has done enough already!
We have three players left in these predictions, and 3 fantastic hat-tricks to talk about. First up Empoli were hosts to Palermo on the weekend and with an extremely comfortable 4-0 win, they took all the points. Caputo as mentioned before was the man of the hour, bagging himself a hat-trick, the match ball and hopefully an Inform too!
PSV were hosts to PEC Zwolle and in a dominating performance they wrapped up the points in a 4-0 win. Jong was the player who stood out, scoring himself a hat-trick and helping wrap up the points for his side.
Our final selection this week sees us head over to Argentina, where Racing Club were hosts to Huracan. Just like the previous two games, it was another 4-0 win for the home side and another hat-trick for a superstar! Martinez was the man this time and hopefully he gets his reward.
