Premier Injury INDEXFriday, March 16 2018
On Friday morning, Atletico Madrid confirmed that full-back Filipe Luis had suffered a leg fracture during the Europa League second-leg away win at Lokomotiv Moscow.
And with the World Cup exactly 13 weeks away, Luis’ price tumbled on the INDEX - falling from a high of £1.18 on Thursday to just 66p less than 24 hours later - based on the assumption that the Brazilian would miss the remainder of the season and the upcoming World Cup finals.
Now, that maybe the case, but there is also the possibility of a quick return. Joe Ledley was back in action after only 35 days ahead of the 2016 European Championships while other examples include Steven Reid [38 days] and Beram Kayal [67 days]. And for that reason alone, I see Luis as an excellent short-term punt….
Worst case scenario, Luis will be back in 2018/19 and I can guarantee you will be making money on the INDEX

The planned football career that would allow Matt to spend every afternoon in the bookies was cut mercifully short. So he was able to spend his mornings there too.
But rather than spunk his (sweet) FA pension on a day-tripper to Palookaville, Matt played smart. He watched, he listened. Learned his trade and earned a reputation.
But the bookies don’t like a winner...
First they closed his accounts. Then they tried legal action to shut down his tipping services. Now they employ him.
