Marquee Matchups Predictions for Week 17
Some nice investment opportunities this week as three rivalries from lower-level leagues are my picks for next weeks Marquee Matchups.
Follow me on Twitter to get these posts right when they come out!
Sheffield United v. Sheffield Wednesday
A rivalry known as the “Steel City Derby”, United and Wednesday will take the pitch on Friday, January 12th. Not huge stakes in terms of table positioning (United is 7th and Wednesday is 16th). Try to grab cheap silvers from either club on bid or snipe.
Al Hilal v. Al Ittihad
The Dawry Jameel league has yet to be featured in FIFA ’18, but Week 17 could be their time as Hilal and Ittihad face off in the “Saudi El Classico”. If EA sets some tough requirements, this matchup could be a big moneymaker. Nawaf al Abed is a great look as he comes from Saudi Arabia, has a good rating, and is close to discard.
Koln v. M’gladbach
The Bundesliga hasn’t had a a featured Marquee Matchup since Week 13, so the “Rheinland Derby” has a very good chance at making the cut. Look to grab Germans from either club for close to discard.
