FIFA 2020 recently released Future Stars player card, which includes all the most prominent football talents who are 23 years old or younger. They are presenting us 21 players who, according to the analysists and experts, have the biggest potential in the entire game.
Three of them have the same grade – 92, which is the highest of all. Those guys are Joao Felix, Lautaro Martinez, and Erling Haaland.
Indeed these guys are beasts and are already indicating an extraordinary amount of quality and talent. We will run over their seasons in real life and see how they are doing.
The first player we check is Joao Felix, Atletico Madrid’s forward and their most expensive player ever. The youngster from Portugal, played 25 games in all competitions this season and scored 5 goals for the Mattress Makers, skipping a few due to some injuries. In the last La Liga clash, he netted against Valencia, coming off a three-game absence due to leg injury.
His Atletico’s chances to win the Spanish title are minimal, and it seems that once again, the battle between Real Madrid and Barca will decide the champion. Blaugrana to win the trophy is 8/11, Real Madrid 7/5, while Atletico Madrid sits at 150/1, ahead Getafe and Sevilla, 250/1.
The situation is similar in the Champions League. Atletico had Liverpool ahead of them in the round of 16 matchups. Felix didn’t play in the first matchup at Wanda Metropolitan, which ended in hosts’ favor, 1-0. Although he is in the combination for the upcoming clash, that doesn’t change the fact that the Europan champions are the favorites in this event. The odds for their win at 1/2. A draw sits at 38/11, and Atletico’s victory 8/1. For more UCL odds see online bookies offers UK, and follow the link provided here
All in all, Felix’s season is solid, but it seems that he won’t be able to clinch any big trophy in his first campaign with the Spanish powerhouse.
Lautaro Martinez is a very important piece of Inter’s puzzle. The young Argentinian had the superb start of the campaign, and he is Inter’s striking force upfront along with Romelu Lukaku. So far, Martinez played 30 games and scored 16 goals across all the competitions.
Inter is very close to reaching its first Serie A title since 2010 and snapping Juventus era of dominance, which lasts from 2012. The competition is harsh, and apart from the Old Lady, who is the first favorite to take the silverware with 11/17, Lazio is also ahead of Nerazzurri with 10/3. Inter is third with 5/1. All that might change this week, when Juve awaits Antonio Conte’s boys. The bookies are favoring the hosts in this matchup, 11/10, while Inter’s win sits at 5/2. A draw is 9/4.
It is pretty much the most important game for this side in the last couple of years. Also, it might be the one which launches Martinez in orbit, and makes him the No.1 star and the new leader of the three-time European champion.
Finally, we’ve come to Erling Haaland, the super sensation which fills the headlines of all the media all over the globe. His goalscoring stats are unreal and it appears that his arrival boosted Borussia Dortmund’s chances for taking the Bundesliga honors.
In six matches played so far, he has nine goals, and he even managed to net against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League. The only time he didn’t score was against Bayer Leverkusen in a 4-3 loss.
His Millionaires are third in the domestic championship with four points fewer than Bayern Munich, and three than Red Bull Leipzig. The Bavarians are the No.1 favorite for the title, 10/20, RB is behind with 5/1, and Dortmund sits at 11/2. Borussia Moenchengladbach is 80/1 currently.
The odds are not favoring Lucien Favre’s team in the Champions League as well. Dortmund is a huge underdog in Paris 15/4, PSG’s win is 3/5 and a draw 10/3. But then again, with Haaland upfront, everything is possible.
His skillset is unreal, and we can see why he became one of the top prospects at FIFA 2020.
All these three guys are surely the biggest talents of world football. And so far, their respective careers in real life are supporting the prognosis of the most popular video game. Furthermore, Felix, Martinez, and Haaland might be even better.
