Two decent boosts this week.

Another week, another batch of Impact player for us to look over and see if anyone is worth investing in.

Three of this weeks players look set for a gold to elite upgrade next week, so there is definitely some profit to be made if you invest well.

Make sure you check back shortly after each game to see what upgrade they earned, as I will be updating this post with their score once the games have finished.

Héctor Moreno (82 CB)

This week's starting elite card is PSV Eindhoven's centre back Héctor Moreno. The Mexican international will be hoping that his side can overcome the odds and gain the 3 points on Ajax, and goal differential, to earn a spot in the Champions League qualifiers for next season.

This week, PSV travel to 10th place Groningen side, who have scored an impressive 13 goals in their last four games. Should this form continue, it looks good for Moreno as it give him more opportunities to make interceptions and boost his Overall. However, I have my doubts as their previous matches have all been against teams well below them in the league and not against a team of PSV's calibre.

Plays: Groningen (A), Sunday 1:30pm (BST)/ 8:30am (ET)

Prediction: +3

Result: +2

A poor performance from PSV saw them only manage a 1-1 draw against Groningen.

Moreno had an extremely quiet game, only having 2 Shots in the second half which will boost him to 84 Overall.


Leon Goretzka (78 CM)

For a few weeks, it looked like Schalke were being drawn into the relegation battle at the foot of the Bundesliga, but they have recovered now and sit 10th. They are still in with an outside chance of getting into the Europa League next season, and a win against 7th placed Freiburg will help them massively in their aim. With just six points separating 5th to 11th place, a win is essential for both teams so it should be a very interesting and open game.

Goretzka has been in good form recently, scoring +9 and +8 in his previous two matches, so he looks like a solid investment as he has the potential to move to 85+ rating if he has a great game. I expect him to finish just under that though, but there hopefully he will get higher.

Plays: Freiburg (A), Sunday 4:30pm (BST)/ 11:30am (ET)

Prediction: +6

Result: +6

A solid performance from Goretzka was not enough for Schalke, as Freiburg took all three points thanks to a Niederlechner brace.

Goretzka had 4 Shots and made 2 Interecptions, boosting him to 84 Overall


Sandro Ramírez (76 ST)

Having left Barcelona last summer in an attempt to find first team football, Sandro Ramírez has found good form at Malaga, with 13 goals in 27 appearances in the league, with 4 of those goals being scored in the last 3 games.

Recently, Malaga have been in excellent form - winning five of their last six games - as they have moved up to mid-table. This week's opponents Celta Vigo's form is exactly the opposite, with five losses in their last six, so it should be a good game for Malaga, and a good upgrade for Ramírez, who should react an elite rating fairly comfortably.

Plays: Celta Vigo (H), Sunday 7:45pm (BST)/ 2:45pm (ET)

Prediction: +6

Result: +8

An excellent performance from Sandro helped lead Malaga to a 3-0 win over Celta Vigo.

The former Barcelona striker had 8 Shots which will boost him to an impressive 84 Overall.


Steve Cook (76 CB)

Bournemouth have been a great team to watch this season, with the highest average goals per game ratio in the league of 3.22 goals in each game they play, so their defenders are always good bets for getting a few upgrade points.

Cook is one of their mainstays at the back, and has had some solid performances recently, with +5 in two of his last five matches. However, Stoke are not in the best of form recently, so Cook may not be in line for a great upgrade, with an upgrade to an elite even fairly unlikely.

Plays: Stoke (H), Saturday 3:00pm (BST)/10:00am (ET)

Prediction: +3

Result: +1

Cook’s Bournemouth side managed a 2-2 draw with Stoke City, but the centerback was largely inconsequential in the stats that determine Impact card’s upgrades.

Cook only made 1 Interception, boosting him to 77 Overall, so it would be advisable to sell him ASAP if you aren’t a hardcore Cherries fan.


Paolo Hurtado (76 CAM)

Vitória de Guimarães are having one of their best seasons in recent times, as they sit in 4th place in the Primeira Liga. They are guaranteed a place in the Europa League, and will be aiming to top off a successful season and keep their run of 10 league games unbeaten in going for as long as possible. This week, they host 14th place Arouca, in what should be an easy win for the home side.

Hurtado has been in good form recently, with two goals and two assists in his last four games. This should hopefully mean that he is able to get to an elite overall, but I doubt he will get much higher than that.

Plays: Arouca (H), Sunday 6:00pm (BST)/1:00pm (ET)

Prediction: +4

Result: +2

A below-par performance from Peruvian international saw was masked by a close fought 1-0 win for Vitória.

He only had 2 Shots in the game, meaning he will only move to 78 Overall.
