Match Day Dividends are just days away as the 2019/20 football season is fast approaching.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the mechanics of Match Day Dividends, find out everything you need to know here.
Last season Traders returned large profits thanks to individual performances on the pitch. So make sure your portfolio is ready once again.
Here are the three highest accumulative Match Day Scoring Bundesliga Defenders from last season and a wildcard to get Traders thinking:
1st – Joshua Kimmich (£3.21) – 5,150
Kimmich has grown a phenomenal amount whilst at the German Champions. As a natural right-back, the 24-year-old was Philip Lahm’s replacement after retirement and he has had no problems filling in for those shoes.

Last season, Kimmich showed he can play a more advanced role either as a right-wing-back or even in central midfield. He was an invaluable asset to Bayern as he got a couple of goals but more impressively, 13 assists. He has fantastic vision from wide areas and is handy off a set-piece.
This season, the utility man will continue to improve as Munich will be fighting off Borussia Dortmund for domestic glory and trying to regain European silverware. He is definitely worth looking into for Traders as a football who seems to be able to do it all.
2nd – Niklas Sule (£1.01) – 3,856
There’s tall and then there’s Niklas Sule. At 6’4 and 23 years old, Niklas Sule is one of Germany’s most talented defenders and it’s safe to say you wouldn’t want him marking you.
Last season, Sule played 31 matches, was a key part of Bayern Munich’s defence and proved a youthful option in an otherwise ageing side. It was no surprise that the German giants won yet another Bundesliga title and Sule managed to keep his discipline by managing just three yellow cards all season.
This season, Sule is one of a number of Bayern players who must step up to the plate and continue to perform. Centre-back Mats Hummels has moved to Dortmund and Jerome Boateng is losing an inch of pace. This will see Sule become a mainstay for both Bayern Munich and Germany.
3rd – Jonathan Tah (£1.38) – 3,667
After years of the same faces, it is refreshing to see young talents such as Jonathan Tah making waves in the Bundesliga. He is a strong, pacey centre-back currently with Bayer Leverkusen and the German national side.
Last season was a big one for Tah – who moved up from the German under-21 side to the senior team. This was thanks to his impressive season at the back for Leverkusen where he scored three goals and his side managed one of the best defensive records in the league.
This season, some have been surprised that Tah appears to be remaining a Leverkusen player and it is possible that in six months to a year he could warrant a big transfer away. Keep your eyes close on him and watch this space.
WILDCARD – Nico Elvedi (£1.04)
The young, Swiss defender was part of a Borrusia Monchengladbach side that conceded just 31 goals last season. At just 22 years old, he had his fourth season at the club in Bundesliga – and has had 20+ caps in every season so far. He has been tipped to be on plenty of Premier League clubs radars but as it stands, he remains a Mochengladbach player.
Elvedi is a defender who is comfortable in possession and is a more modern style of centre-back. He stands at about 6’2 but prefers to outwit his opposite number than overpower him. He is a clever young player who will grow in value as time goes by. Traders, don’t miss your chance!
