Marquee Matchup Predictions for Week 12
Some top-flight matchups in the Premier League for next weekend, along with some good fixtures from the Russian and Dutch leagues. I don’t expect both the Manchester and Merseyside derbies to be picked, but you can be sure one of them will make the cut.

Manchester United v. Manchester City
The Manchester derby is as heated as ever. With United and City holding the tops 2 spots in the Premier League, it is all but certain that EA picks them as a Marquee Matchup next week. As always, discard golds from either of the clubs are good investments.
Liverpool v. Everton
Overshadowed by the battle of Manchesters, the Liverpool/Everton Merseyside derby will also be a showdown next weekend. However, because so much is at stake in the United/City match and EA rarely picks 2 teams from the same league, I wouldn’t waste your time investing in this matchup.
Spartak v. CSKA
While this is a great matchup between some top clubs of the Russian League, I have my doubts as Spartak was just chosen for MM on November 21st. If you do invest here, look to buy some non-rare Russian golds from either club.
Ajax v. PSV
With no Eredivisie marquee matchup since mid October, Ajax v. PSV is my pick for investing this week. Stakes are high as the rivalry better known as De Topper features the first and second club in the Dutch table. Marco van Ginkel, Jorrit Hendrix, Abdelhak Nouri and Benjamin van Leer are all good looks.
