Market Trend #4 Champions League Group Stages

Updated: Feb 23

The group stages of the Champions League start on Tuesday 17/10/2019 and it is likely that there will be plenty of players increasing in price because of this.


The Champions League is, in a sense, already factored into many player's prices as many of the best and therefore most expensive players -already play for the best teams (which are in the Champions League).


However, below are some young players to consider buying from non-pb leagues that will be playing in the Champions League


Best under 23's in the Champions League from non-pb leagues


The timing of trading the below players will be particularly key. Transfer Speculation may increase demand for the below players (up until the January transfer window) leading to high prices which may then drop if a transfer does not develop.
