Although 2020 might not have been great for football on the whole, especially in the financial aspects of the game, there have been some positives for many of the star players currently plying their trade.
Whilst the viral pandemic has sent the financial side of football plummeting in regards to wages and transfer fees being paid out, there have been a number of quality individuals to have seen their own transfer values go up, thus showing that they have been doing something right on the pitch. These are the players that bettors who do sports betting online will look out for to ensure they win the wagers they place.

Thus, in the latest round of alterations, two of the youngest, yet biggest, talents in the Bundesliga have benefited with huge increases to their values since January 1, 2020.
