FUT 19 Marquee Matchups Predictions: 8 November

Back to back weeks of 2 for 4 on our Marquee Matchup predictions, and although consistency is key it's time to get back to that perfect 4 for 4 record.

Currently, the Marquee Matchups rewards have received a nice buff which should help settle some fears that this Squad Builder Challenge was losing its luster. A positive trend on reward packs coupled with a week of high caliber derbies means that this next MM cycle could be the best one yet. Definitely continue for the whole article as matchups at every tier have quality investment and pack reward potential.

Top Picks

As only four matchups typically make the SBC group, here are the four we think are the most likely to be selected:

Disclaimer: These are educated guesses and NOT guarantees. Invest accordingly at your own risk.

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich

Match Info: This Marquee Matchup predictions starts with a bang as two of the highest profile teams in Germany square off. Even if these two sides aren’t first and second like usual, this derby will still be incredibly entertaining, and EA will be eager to add them to the MM inclusion list. Non-rares could be the best bet here.

Predicted Requirements:

  • Team Overall Rating: Min. 78 rated

  • Player Requirement: 1 to 2 players from either Team

  • Team Chemistry: Min. 90 chemistry

AS Monaco vs PSG

Match Info: With Ligue 1 missing out on the current Marquee Matchups, it seems fitting that this fixture highlights their next match week. With another matchup between the top two sides in a league, this derby should follow suit as a very reasonable inclusion. Again, plenty of non-rares to go around here.

Predicted Requirements:

  • Team Overall Rating: Min. 78 rated

  • Player Requirement: 1 to 2 players from either team

  • Team Chemistry: Min. 90 chemistry

Olympiakos vs Panathinaikos

Match Info: Traveling to the Greek league, EA will be looking for a fringe derby and I believe this checks that box perfectly. There may be a couple sleeper options for this spot, but the Greek league offers a solid amounts of golds so hopefully they can continue to keep the pack rewards positive

Predicted Requirements:

  • Team Overall Rating: Min. 72 rated

  • Player Requirement: 1 to 2 players from each team

  • Team Chemistry: Min. 90 chemistry

Manchester United vs Manchester City

Match Info: Last year there was a huge controversy when the Manchester Derby missed out on the Marquee Matchup list. With pressure to keep pack rewards high, I believe it could be worth EA’s time to include this matchup. It would allow them to please the PL community, as well as offer a tidy pack reward.

Predicted Requirements:

  • Team Overall Rating: Min. 79 overall

  • Player Requirement: 1 to 2 player from either team

  • Team Chemistry: Min. 85 chemistry
