Stand OutMatch Day Scores (Last 7 Days)
Pedro Neto and Edmond Tapsoba were some of last weekend's highest match day scoring players under the age of 23.
But, one young, French center-back playing in the Bundesliga caught my eye in particular. Evan N'Dicka did indeed win dividends this weekend after scoring and hitting his second 200+ score in a row and he may well be a valuable holdon Football Index.
However,the player who caught my attention was actually another young, French,center-back playing in the Bundesliga - meet Maxence Lacroix. Who? I thought the same as his name stood out on the matchday scores table yesterday. But, upon further analysis, he could be quite the hold on Football Index.
Lacroix was actually playing in Ligue 2 alongside Sofiane Diop (Another youngster whohas stood out this season) for FC Sochaux last season. Upon impressing forSochaux, Wolfsburg snapped Lacroix up for just £4.5 Million which has turned out to be quite the bargain.
Lacroix IPO'd on Football Index exactly one week ago today and in his first game on the platform he hit a score of 200 in Wolfsburg's goalless draw with Borussia Monchengladbach. What stands out about Lacroix is his ability on the ball. Against Gladbach, Lacroix completed 80 passes, attempted 3 dribbles (2 Successful) and attempted a huge 16 long balls (8 Accurate). Playing under former center-back, Oliver Glasner, for a very in-form Wolfsburg - Lacroix could be a player worth adding to your watchlist...
Future Dividend Winners
Before last night, Kylian Mbappe had only won a total of 26p in dividends since thestart of the 2019/2020 season. Last night, Mbappe won 13p in dividends (33% of his total dividend return).
On an average gold match day, Mbappe's score last night would have been enough t oearn him 28p in dividends which would have been more than his total past dividend return. Having rarely scored the Game Winning Goal (GWG) and having hit a number of high scores but failed to earn dividends, you could definetely make an argument that Mbappe had previously been unlucky not to earn more in dividends.
Looking further into a player's match day scores can be very useful to get a clearer picture on a player's potential to earn dividends and this is why it is worth checking out the context of a player's past match day scores using the player profiles dashboard.
Often past match day scores will give you a better idea of a player's potential toearn match day dividends than past match day dividend returns will.
With the return of the Champions and Europa League, there will be plenty of price fluctuations, dividend winners and opportunities on Football Index. We hope our new blog will help you stay up to date on what is going on in the market and point you in the right direction of valuable players on Football Index.
