Market Trend #10.1 Champions League / Europa League later stages

The first leg in the Champions League round of 16 takes place on 18/02/20 whilst the first leg of the Europa League round of 32 takes place on 20/02/20.


As explained in Market Trend #10 Champions League / Europa League later stages once the transfer window closes and the money back offer is no longer on we may see money start to shift into players which will be playing in the later stages of either the Champions League or Europa League.


Last season we saw many players playing in the later stages of the Champions League / Europa League increase in price as their team progressed in the tournament and we may see this trend occur again this season.


Therefore, it may be wise to buy players which appear to be of good value regardless of this possible market trend so that these players have a low potential downside, but, could have a large upside over the next 3-6 weeks depending on the extent to which buying Champions League / Europa League players becomes a trend.


Below are potentially valuable players which have a strong chance of playing in the next round of either the Champions League / Europa League. *PB scores are from this season only
