Well that certainly escalated quickly for Celtic didn’t it? The Scottish champions made a dream start in their away tie against PSG last night as Moussa Dembele (£1.75) gave Celtic the lead in the first minute! However, Neymar (£7.25) soon turned things around and his brace opened the floodgates, as PSG thrashed Celtic 7-1 on the night.
Neymar helped himself to a double and an assist and in doing so, he racked up a very healthy performance buzz total of 242 points; earning both the striker dividend and overall dividend in the process! Neymar had reached a value of £7.35 earlier this month and whilst he has dipped ever so slightly since then, he reminded traders of his outstanding dividend potential with this performance last night.
Edinson Cavani (£1.81) had also netted a double during this match, but he was unable to replicate the high score Neymar achieved and it is likely that this is what effected his value over the past 24 hours; with a 4.05% drop as a result. Dani Alves finds himself on a similar footing with Cavani at this moment of time and having also helped himself to a goal late on in the game, Alves continues to look a solid bet from a defensive point of view and he also won the PB yesterday.
Over in Belgium, Bayern Munich managed to edge out a 2-1 victory over Anderlecht with both Robert Lewandowski (£2.67) and Corentin Tolisso (£1.09) making the difference. Tolisso looked impressive and his goal and assist secured the midfield dividend with a very high 234 points total. This performance from Tolisso had a significant impact on his value and he has been subject to an increase in value by 35% in the last 24 hours – not bad going for those shrewd traders who had managed to get hold of futures on the cheap!
However, the news wasn’t so good for Thiago Alcantara (£1.81). The brilliant Brazilian picked up an injury and this resulted in a decrease in value by 37p. However, remember that with any injury, there is always an opportunity to take advantage! Just 2 months ago, Alcantara was at a whopping value of £3.60! As such, this recent drop in price could lead to a great opportunity to snap up futures on the cheap! Alcantara is considered one of the best midfielders in the world with good reason and once he returns and gets back into the swing of things, we could easily see his price sky rocket in no time at all; as with most of players on the Index, it’s simply a question of when…not if!
