    Don't think it'll be profitable this year tbh. Last year the profit decreased rapidly as EA lowered the requirements plus this year everyone is aware of this so I doubt it will make any profit at all. Gl to all who are going to try it though

    Australia paid nicely most times it came up ...it seemed towards the end it was less about marquee and more than likely them avoiding what we all wanted.lol

    I'm a sucker for the old Marquee matchups. Looking forward to having some fun with them this year. It gives me an excuse to keep every silver I ever pack.. just in case.
    Erdivisie and pro league golds are also worth holding onto. They seemed to come up fairly regularly last year, and always with a tidy return.

    Bring it on!

    There was always profit to be made from them, especially when the random leagues popped up that people weren't prepared for. It will be the same this year if EA do them.

    Anyone wanting to do this, I would recommend trying to keep at least 2 players (personally I always have more) from every team in your club. It won't be easy to do this at first, but after a few weeks you should be able to pick up discard ones quite easy on open bid early in the week. This way you will always be able to complete the matchups and you will also be able to sell what you don't use for profit. Always remember to buy them back on open bid for cheap after the SBC expires.

    What @Hornerglow says is true though, they did lower the requirements and it became easier to do them. There was a Real Madrid one (I cant remember the opponent), but you needed one player from each team, all gold and 85 chem (I think, memory is hazy). You could easily complete this one with the 2 needed La Liga players and then a load of discard players from another league, yet people were still paying over the odds for the La Liga cards to complete it.

    Unless it explicitly says so, you don't need to use the league for the matchup to complete the SBC, just the the amount of players from the clubs it's about. Try to be smart about these and you can do them for almost nothing and make a lot of profit too.

    I'm going down the road of buying cheap players from every club with spare coins as a long term investment for League SBCs or MM.

    Is it best to buy golds, silvers or a mix?

    Are you expecting something for the Champions League and Europa League tomorrow?
    Dortmund Real or PSG Bayern could be the main attractions.

    Wonder if it'll be Tues/Thurs again but usually the Tues one was for midweek matches and this one features the weekend.
