January Player of the Month Update
It’s the start of a new month in FUT and real world football, meaning the start of a new Player of the Month race.
With a relatively low scoring first week this month, only Jesus and Noble have 2 goals or more, meaning they lead the race. Still plenty of time to go here though!
No games played in Ligue 1, they’re back in action this weekend!
No games played in the Bundesliga, they’re back in action starting Friday Jan 17th!
Again, a relatively low scoring opening week in La Liga, with Varane and Unal topping the charts with their 2 goal performances.
Marquee Matchups Week 17 Prediction
Another week of Marquee Matchups predictions, we’ve been doing really well with these of late, let’s keep the run going!
Spurs - Liverpool
The rematch from the 2018/19 Champions League final, and a big game in the Premier League. I can see this one being included pretty comfortably.
Roma - Piemonte Calcio
Despite Serie A being included in Week 16, I can see this clash of top teams being included in Marquee Matchups this week.
PSG - AS Monaco
A couple of top clubs going up against each other in Ligue 1, a pretty safe inclusion for MMs this week.
Cardiff - Swansea
The South Wales derby looks to be a good lower league fixture to be thrown into MMs this week.
