Marquee Matchup Predictions for Week 19
A couple matchups from the big leagues (Ligue 1 and La Liga) as well as two from smaller leagues (Hyundai A-League and Belgium Pro League) for this week.

OM v. AS Monaco
Monaco was recently featured in Marquee Matchups from Week 17, so I’m not overly confident with this fixture. That being said, these clubs are positioned 4th and 2nd respectively with only 1 point separating them. For that reason, the “Derby de la Côte d’Azur” could still be chosen by EA.
Valencia v. Real Madrid
Real Madrid (4th in La Liga) looks to close in on Valencia’s (3rd in La Liga) 8 point lead in this matchup. Look to grab Spanish golds for discard from either side.
Melbourne Victory v. Sydney
EA chose the Hyundai A-League for MM in Week 16, so this matchup isn’t my favorite for investing. Look to get players for discard if you do choose on taking the gamble on “The Big Blue” derby.
Gent v. Club Brugge
The Belgian Pro League has only been chosen once for Marquee Matchups this year (Week 13 – Anderlecht v. Club Brugge). Known as the “Battle of Flanders”, this fixture could earn the Pro League their second nomination. Discard Belgians from Gent or Brugge are your best bets.
