This weekends action gets underway on Friday with the return of two of the most popular leagues in Bundesliga and La Liga.
Friday is a single match day with 3 fixtures taking place which means 2p match day dividends are up for grabs for each position win plus a bonus 1p for the star man. Don’t forget IPD’s also count so each goal, assist or clean sheet is a bonus which ever way you look at it and like to trade.
3 giants play on the Friday in Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Lyon.
After Joachim Anderson’s winning 188 points last week after a fine performance, his price has shot up by 20.5% in the last 7 days.
Andersen completed 103 passes as well as attempting 12 long balls – 9 of which were accurate. His involvement was very high with 111 touches of the ball throughout the game.
Whilst Lyon have played a game, for the other 2 teams it is their first to kick off their respective campaigns. All eyes are on Bayern’s PB kings in Thiago and Kimmich. Weirdly, traders think Robben has something to play for.
Thiago is the biggest % and £ mover over the last 7 days in the Bayern team with Kimmich not too far behind in pence (up 30p). The whole Bayern team is up 5.95%!!
The new matrix should benefit Kimmich with the addition of key passes – bombing down the flank and whipping in crosses, we should see more of the same this season. Anderson has some competition this Friday.
The above visual is taken from our popular blog post analysing the best players from each league for the new events added to the match day buzz matrix. Read it here.
It also looks like Messi is going to be rested on Friday as he returns from a minor injury, this means the likes of Griezmann, Suarez, Depay and Lewandowski are all in with a shout to win some dividends. Others who benefit also are the likes of Traore, Cornet if he plays and or Dembele.
Suarez is up 16p over the week, Griezmann up 11p and the new boy De Jong going by unnoticed with a 12p rise over the last 7 days. If he plays, I’m looking forward to seeing him play.
Lewandowski and Suarez are possibly better IPD plays as the others tend to be more involved in other events (passes, key passes, corners etc) that they have more of a chance of competing for match day dividends. But it’s going to be a case of whichever scores the most goals. In the event of low scoring games, it’s the one who contributes the most which will succeed.

Worth also noting, La Liga TV rights have still not yet been sorted so most of us will be streaming this game – so expect delayed reactions and possibly VAR influenced volatility which should make things exciting.
