Marquee Matchup Prediction for Week 49
For Week 49, I like two big fixtures out of Liga NOS and the MLS for investment.
Follow me on Twitter to get these posts right when they come out!
Benfica v. Sporting
The Portuguese League is back in action as two of the most storied clubs, Benfica and Sporting, face off on Sunday, August 26th. For this fixture, I like cheap, rare golds from either club. Andrea Samaris, Rafa, and Sebastian Coates are particularly good looks.
Target BUY: 800 coins or less
Target SELL: Tuesday, August 21st after the announcement or when they reach 2,000 coins (whichever comes first)
LA FC v. LA Galaxy
A few weeks ago, I had high hopes that this matchup would be chosen for MM Week 45. Unfortunately, EA had other ideas. However, I’m again hopeful that it will make it’s way into Week 49.
This rivalry between LA FC (37 points, 7th in table) and LA Galaxy (36 points, 9th in table) has been dubbed “El Tràfico” because of the California city’s notoriously congested highways. Galaxy’s addition of Zlatan earlier this year makes for an even more interesting fixture.
If this matchup gets chosen, I doubt that there will be a high squad rating requirement. For that reason, invest in the cheapest players from either side, whether that be bronze or silver.
