Marquee Matchups Predictions for Week 33 (edited)
Big week coming up as semi finalists fight to claim their spot in the Europa and Champions League final. In addition, El Classico takes place on May 6th. I expect Real Madrid v. Bayern, Sevilla v. Liverpool, Arsenal v. Atletico, and Salzburg v. Marseille OR El Classico to be chosen next week. Here is who I’m targeting for these potential marquee matchups.

FC Redbull Salzburg
After not being chosen for Marquee Matchups this week, we have had panic sellers getting rid of their Salzburg investments. These players rose quite a bit leading up to the MM announcement this week as they are set for a Europa League semifinal fixture with Marseille on Thursday.
Since they have their second leg against Marseille next week, I anticipate these players rising similarly leading up to the announcement once again. Get your hands on them quick as their prices will rebound after panic sellers stop listing their investments.
Target BUY: Less than 500 coins
Target SELL: Tuesday, May 1st BEFORE THE ANNOUNCEMENT or when they reach 1,500 coins (whichever comes first)
Real Madrid Golds
If the Salzburg investment is too risky for you, another option would be to invest in Real Madrid gold players. This is a great look because Real Madrid could be chosen for both their Champions League Semifinal against Bayern or the El Clasico clash against Barcelona. Here is a list of the cheapest gold players. At the moment, Kiko Casilla and Vallejo go for 800 coins. Since they discard for 650, there is little to lose there.
Target BUY: 850 coins or less
Target SELL: Tuesday, May 1st AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT or when they reach 1,500 coins (whichever comes first)
Hi. Would you buy all types of cards like bronze,silver,golds etc for under 500??
I’m confident they will rise past 500 again. Golds have less risk. If you don’t want as much of a gamble, just invest in golds.
Sandro Wagner if price is constantly dropping. Time to sell now or will his price go up when out of packs?
His price will go up when he goes out of packs, but it won’t be instantaneous. If you don’t want to wait 1+ weeks for an extra few thousand coins, then you should sell.
But won’t he take a hit if some TOTS are released on Friday?
Ya that is exactly what I was thinking.
The TOTS crash doesn’t apply as much to high rated informs that are useful for SBCs – more for the players that have in game value and/or are packable.
Their prices rebound today in the morning to 1k+ (I held… 🙁 ), and now plummeted again to 400-500… Hope they will rise again >.<
What about EL CLASICO 06/05 Chief?
That has a shot as well. I think EA will either choose all semifinal matches from Champions/Europa League next week or none at all. If it’s the latter, El Clasico has a good shot at getting picked.
This brings up a good investment opportunity, actually. Real has a good shot at getting picked for MM for both their cup match and the clash with Barcelona. Here are the cheapest Real Madrid golds. They are a good look as an investment as well. I will edit the above post to include them.
I have few coins but I will invest in redbull and real madrid!
just 25k lol
thanks for the answer!
most of Real Madrid’s are almost 1.5k now
Nice! Hopefully some people took my advice and invested!
I did invest in Real Madrid players. Since Madrid has two chances of being highlighted (Champions League + Clasico), I am thinking of holding my players instead of selling in the hype. You advised to sell them when they reach 1.5k or after the announcement, whichever comes first. Do you think I should sell them now?
It’s up to you. When I’m in situations like this where I can’t decide to sell in the hype or wait it out, I like to sell half and hold half. Hedge your investment.
Ok, thanks, I’ll do that.
