Football Returns..

With the Bundesliga looking set to return next month, we have already seen many Bundesliga players rise considerable amounts.


We may see similar rises in players from the other four leagues once these leagues return to action, although perhaps not to the same extent as the rises we have seen recently in Bundesliga players. Returning first will provide Bundesliga players a better chance of earning match day dividends due to competing with less players on match days. Furthermore, with the lack of football elsewhere, strong performers are likely to gain trader's attention even more than usual which could lead to greater price rises.


In a few months time, provided all PB eligible matches are fulfilled this season and not voided like the Eredivisie has been, it is likely money will be spread across players in each of the different PB leagues like how it had been prior to Covid-19 and the postponement in football.


Below I have compiled my findings from various sources on when the top 5 leagues could return. The below dates are far from confirmed, but provide a brief summary of the current situation and possible return dates for the different leagues.

There are so many variables to consider when estimating when the various leagues will return and there are factors which could influence decisions which are currently unknown to us.


Therefore, attempting to time purchases based on speculation of leagues returning at this point can be difficult. We have already seen many Bundesliga players rise and a few Serie A players rise recently too.


Over a longer period of time, traders will correct any players' prices that are temporarily over priced or under priced due to the temporary lack of fixtures. However, in the short term, given Serie A is likely to be the next league to return and we have not seen so many players already rise in Serie A as we have seen in the Bundesliga - it could be profitable to buy into some Serie A players.

Serie A players recently highlighted on the site have already risen an average of 13.9%

Below are further Serie A players who appear fairly strong value at their current prices and could increase in price in the short term if we see a more dominant trend towards Serie A in the upcoming weeks. *Please note there are less players than usual in this blog post as many which would have been highlighted have already been highlighted in recent blog posts (Especially players in the above table who are yet to rise considerably since)
