How upcoming European fixtures will impact Football Index players


Sponsored by Football Index


The new year is now in full swing and there are some indicators that it might be an improvement on the previous wretched edition.

But one thing is currently remaining resolutely 2020 – the chaotic fixture list.

That does at least provide certain opportunities, whether you’re a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) manager or a Football Index (FI) trader.

Football Index is the ‘football stockmarket’, a real-money betting platform where you can buy and sell footballers.

You buy shares in individual players whose value can rise or fall depending on their performance both on and off the field.

I’m actively using FI this season with more than a nod to FPL, seeing which aspects of each game marry up, and which don’t.

‘The more the merrier’, in terms of fixtures, applies to both games.

But it is especially true on FI because more club fixtures are relevant, with the game covering all of the major continental leagues and the pan-European Champions and Europa leagues.

That means there’s an incredibly busy few weeks coming up for the English teams involved in Europe.

Those still playing Champions League football – Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea – have eight fixtures covered by FI’s Match Day Dividends to come between now and the end of February.

The four sides in the Europa League’s Round of 32 – Arsenal, Leicester, Manchester United and Spurs – have nine.

All of that doesn’t factor in FA Cup duties either, which won’t figure in FI business, but will ramp up the rotation risks.

So while it’s highly unlikely that any player will feature across all of those matches, picking out a few who will play a major part could prove lucrative, particularly when FI’s In-Play Dividends come to an end early next month and longer-term considerations begin to inform market moves more prominently again.

Of the seven teams mentioned, Man United look to have one of the best schedules, with Sheffield United, Arsenal, Southampton, Everton, West Brom, Newcastle and Chelsea in the league, and two Europa League games against Real Sociedad.

Bruno Fernandes, available around the £7.00 mark, remains the most expensive player on FI, although his current share price is a good deal down from a recent peak of £8.93 in late November last year.

A rather less pricey purchase involves Marcus Rashford (£2.72). In FPL, the England international is second only to Fernandes in terms of points (92 v 135) and he’s been in decent form, with two goals and an assist from the four matches leading up to Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool.

Cross town rivals City are in a good place.

Unbeaten in their last 10 league starts, their schedule isn’t as kind as United’s, but a Champions League match-up with Borussia Monchengladbach suggests the strong possibility of advancement to the quarter finals and across those last 10 league games, they’ve scored 21 goals and conceded just two.

John Stones (£0.91) has been the talk of FPL’s Double Gameweek 19 thanks to a 21-point haul against Crystal Palace, but for the same price you could try a punt on one Sergio Aguero.

Is he in Pep Guardiola’s plans? Here’s what the City boss said on Tuesday:

“We need Aguero. Sergio is a player who can create for himself and win a game by himself, but he has not been with us for a long time. We want him back as soon as possible.”

With such a congested fixture list, fresh players are gold dust. When that player is the club’s record goal scorer, £0.91 a share could be a steal.

Lastly, Leicester.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are in form – unbeaten in six league matches and with back-to-back 2-0 victories under their belt – and while their schedule is a mixed affair ( Everton, Leeds, Fulham, Wolves, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Arsenal), they have two Europa League games with Slavia Prague to sweeten the deal.

The Foxes have also found a way to win with reduced input from Jamie Vardy, which is just as well while Rodgers continues to manage the talisman’s ongoing hip issues.

The striker has just the one goal (albeit three assists) over that recent fine run.

Instead, midfielders James Maddison (£1.30) and Harvey Barnes (£0.84) have picked up the goalscoring slack, with three apiece and six each for the season as a whole.

But if he did reach his FI potential as a Chelsea and England regular I don’t think he’d have any problem clearing £4. So a good balance of risk reward here in my view.

      Played WC this week. It will be hard to plan BB for DGW.

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That was always the risk. There should be more clarity with DGW26 and BGW29 after this round of FA cup fixtures and give you enough time to plan and use FTs

        1. mojoindojo
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I was well prepared with 14 DGW players. But 6 of them were in Leeds-Saints game.
          So had to play WC.

          1. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I wouldn't say you had to WC. Could've benched 3SGW and take a -8 to replace the others.

          2. Black Knights
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Why? Leeds still had one good match and you had 8 other DGWers. That was enough for me to do nothing.

      Help needed please guys. 1 ft 0.1 itb

      Martinez
      Robbo Dias Coufal
      Salah Bruno Kdb* Raphina

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I would take a -4 KDB and Zouma to Gundo/Foden/Barnes/Maddison and Cancelo/Stones

    6. dbeck

      Thoughts on saving this week then doing a -4:

      Out: Salah, Watkins, Targett
      In: Vardy, Barnes, Digne

      Attacking the two plumb leicester and everton fixtures

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Vardy not passing my eye test at the moment. Looks well off. That attempted lob the other night was weak I though. Just not finishing like he used to do and also not looking as pacey as he once did. Maybe its the niggling hip,

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          it was the finish of someone who knew they were offside

    7. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      DCL back in training, Everton with a 21-24 run of Newcastle, Leeds, United, Fulham. With Digne, Rich, Rodriguez all in the side surely he'll return to form and the opponents are generous.

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I am more interested in Digne i feel

      What's up with people talking about Pogba negatively impacting Bruno? Bruno has looked so threatening recently!

      1. tomasjj
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        His returns are way down.

      2. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        i've watched every game and bruno has been close to hauls (good save from alison, hit post v fulham and cavani wasted good cross).

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          The fulham game was an anomaly he usually looks far less threatening with pogba and his numbers back that up

      3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        These are people who don't actually watch games and judge performances only on points. He is still performing at same levels. Just that those small margins that used to work in his favour have slightly shifted.

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Nonsense to suggest those people dont watch games. Id agree he looked much much better in this dgw but prior to that all his anonymous games invovled pogba.

          Was visibly deeper when pog was starting. Maybe theyre changing the tactics a bit now becuase these last 2 games have porbably been far more encouraging

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Agreed, Bruno has been worse off with Pogba's presence. Will still be my captain this week though.

          2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Keeping or transfering out?

      4. Ginkapo FPL

        Is Pogba on pens now?

      5. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Just checked

        Games pogba hasnt started

        Newcaslte, everton, west brom, leeds, leicester.

        Ignoring the penalties, that is still 4 goals and 4 assists

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Southampton too. So thats 5 goals and 5 assists

      1. aleksaa2

          Yep, agreed. The main source in The Guardian article is a Betfair man though, so not exactly impartial.

        My money is certainly trapped, total con as they keep changing the rules to suit them.

          Was wondering that. Is this site linked to FI in any way? Or just advertising revenue?

                My team is a mess

                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  I see. OK. Well its a decent WC pick. Very good in fact. Cant fault it. Son is missing but you've got Kane. And double city defence. Its good.

            2. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left

              what's your current team

              1. NoSalah'd
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Current team is:
                  Johnstone, Areola,
                  Cancelo, Dias, Zouma, Coufal, Dallas
                  Salah, KDB, Bruno, Son, Soucek
                  Adams, Bamford, Antonio

                  1. Fit_to_drop
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    People are going to tell you that that team is OK. A few hits would sort it. Probably right but you can decide.

                  2. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left

                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    KDB out to City or LEI mid with the FT and play 442. Can't see the need for a WC.

                    Johnstone\Areola
                    Cancelo Dias Coufal Dallas
                    Salah KDB* Bruno Son
                    Bamford, Antonio
                    (Soucek Adams Zouma)

                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    That team 100% does not need a wildcard imo. The only teams I think need a WC are those that for some reason don't have any City defense or have no way of getting in Spurs attackers. You check neither of those boxes.

              2. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Like it would score huge in GW19...

                Look ahead. Get more Spurs, keep some Southampton and Leeds especially since they might have a DGW in 23. I'd extend the extra Spurs to defense where I think they're quite underrated.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Thinking Mane-> Gundogan or Robbo -> Cancelo.
              Kane in the GW after then.
              WC'ing in 25 likely so going without KDB seems fine to me.

              Anything else standing out?
              McCarthy.
              Robbo, Stones, Coufal.
              Salah, Son, Mane, Fernandes, Soucek.
              Antonio, Bamford.
              Forster, Dallas, Brewster, Ferguson.
              1ft, 0.8m ITB. WC, BB left- Prob 25 and 26 for those chips.

              Anyone was brave enough to keep Kane and Son instead of going for Salah for a hit? I wasn't and was convinced that it is the wrong move to sell them, but went with the crowd.

              Anyone that brave ?

                1 month, 5 days ago

                I did it. Though I had WC'd the previous week.

                I spent all week worrying about whether to do Saka & Kane > Salah & anyone for a hit, when in fact I should've been looking at more obvious weak links (Leeds assets after the double was cancelled) for highly owned players with big upside (Justin, Antonio).

                In the end, I've resolved to stop selling players who have just scored the previous week, as I've made too many mistakes like that this year. So I kept Kane in.

                I free hitted Salah in for a week and now back to Kane + Son, pleased with that.

                  They're season keepers for me, swapped Salah out for KDB 4 weeks ago, was going to reverse that next week but he's not looking good at all so will maybe do KDB for Gundo and wait

                  Nope, big fail on the Son and Kane to Salah and Vardy (-4) moves

                  I did keep them both and went without Salah, so that's a win - however my overall score this week isn't great!

                  You asked this before the deadline and i remember replying that the only way i could get Salah was to remove Son AND Kane, so i wouldn't do it. So i didn't do it. Didn't even need a sofa last night in the end!

                So now that the Zambian curse is gone, Salah will score against Spurs?

                    I was going to have a go at suggestions. But you are right. Its a bit sh1te alright. I suppose tack 2 transfers onto your free and go -8 and see where that takes you. Which 3 to prioritise? Prob Robbo, Salah or KDB, and try and turn one of the weaker 2 strikers into Kane with the spare cash.

                  Cant quite believe how this happened but my beloved liverpool have the worst conversion rate of any team this year.

                  Yes you read that right. Salah, mane and Bobby, have a lower conversion rate than Newcastle and even Sheffield United strikers.

                  I have watched every minute of this and I am warning you, if you think liverpool are in a title race then you are wearing 2020 spectacles.

                  Something is seriously wrong and hoping some dumb curse expiring is going to solve our significant problems is ridiculous.

                  I would sell Salah and mane in real life and fpl and I am sure no one has Bobby but if their was a lone maniac out there listening, liverpool attack is a SELL SELL SELL

                  1 goal in just short of 90 attempts. Each game worse than the one before. Keep at your peril.

                    I met a traveller from an antique land
                    Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
                    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
                    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
                    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
                    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
                    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
                    The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
                    And on the pedestal these words appear:
                    'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
                    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
                    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
                    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
                    The lone and level sands stretch far away.

                    It’s not some dumb curse. It’s the fact they’re without their 3 first team centre backs and Anfield. The effect of Anfield is massive and without it Liverpool aren’t all that. How people can’t see this and blame it on form is beyond me

                      Its the curse. How were they able to score 7 goals and salah alone 2 goals and an assist in 30 mins right before the curse?

                        Well the next game will set you straight.

                        I predict liverpool continue to struggle to score until jota comes back which is early Feb.

                  Barnes or Maddison? All the talk is of Maddison right now but his shots seem to be from quite far out compared to Barnes.

                      Finishing was the poorest aspect of Barnes game a year ago. He now looks to have added that. Normally, Id have preferred Maddison in the past (set pieces, playmaker, plays off Vardy a lot and sometimes past him) but now Barnes has entered that conversation also as his end-product has improved so much.

                      I was literally a toss of a coin between Foden or Maddison this week. Went Foden so watched Maddison very closely. He only had 4 shots in 2 games, and scored with his only 2 on target. I reckon if i had the choice again, i'd go for Barnes.

                      Im not so sure on the Liverpool one. The flanks are being shut down by opposition and the quality of delivery just doesnt appear to be there now I watched him closely last night. Didnt see much reason to keep him for 2m more than his peers.

                    Already did Soucek>Gundo due to potential price movement. Is it worth getting KDB out for a hit this week or am I gtg? I feel like I am set but do think a United asset, or even James Rodriguez would be an interesting differential with their fixtures and potentially full health squad. Thoughts?
