Taking advantage of drops / injuries #2

Following on from the post earlier this week, plenty of players who could be great value as longer term holds have dropped considerably in price recently as Covid-19 has led to fixtures and EURO 2020 being postponed as well as many traders temporarily withdrawing from Football Index.


Many of these player's prices are likely to bounce back once football returns and so it can be a great time to buy some of these players at lower prices whilst confidence in the market is low.


Below are players who have decreased in price recently and could be of great value at their current prices for the reasons below:
