What are the techniques to grow your team with Sorare buying and selling?
Short-term buying and selling with Sorare
To start with, let’s see several techniques called short term, which will allow you to make an instant capital gain on players. These techniques have the advantage of not “blocking” money on your account by keeping cards for a long time. However, they usually require a lot of time on your part.
1. Buy players who perform in real time
To start with, if you like to follow the games or receive notifications, you can buy players who perform in the moment.
For example, when you see a player scoring a goal or making an assist, you will rush to buy them and sell them right away at a slightly higher price.
With this method, you ensure small gains that will help you grow your bankroll.
On the downside:
- It is sometimes difficult to be the fastest to buy the player (you will have to anticipate and be ready to snipe the card in question)
- A goal can be cancelled because of VAR
- It’s about small gains
As you can see, this technique can be very effective even if it requires you to be reactive and make several transactions of this kind to make your account grow.
2. Buy a goalkeeper announced as a starter
On Sorare, goalkeepers are the most expensive players and therefore the most sought after. One technique is to look at the team lineups as early as possible to spot substitute goalkeepers who are starters for the upcoming match.
If you are quick enough to buy goalkeepers before the price goes up too much, you can sell them right away and make a nice profit.
A tip: If this new goalkeeper is a starter because of illness or short injury of the starting goalkeeper, then it is better to sell him instantly. If it is a goalkeeper who tends to become a starter, then it is better to wait a bit before reselling him at an even more interesting price.
- You have to be on your toes when it comes to team composition
- It is not always easy to know if it is a replacement for a single game or more.
Do not hesitate to test by yourself, and find out the reason of the absence of the starting goalkeeper in order to act with more information.
3. Buying new starting players
This tip is similar to the previous one, since it consists of buying players according to the pre-match lineup. The difference is that you will have a little more time to make your decisions, and not all outfield players will bring you profits.
Indeed, it is not rare that a player plays only one game because of a sick starter, and that he is then sidelined for many weeks. In this case, you end up with unsellable players.
The goal is to find players who will remain in the starting line-up for several games. So don’t hesitate to look at when the last game of this player was, and what about the player who usually played in his place. Is he suspended, did he have a series of bad performances, was he replacing a player while he was injured? These elements can help you make your choice.
Generally speaking, the most interesting players are the U23. You can resell them with a small capital gain if you are one of the first to buy them.
- It is necessary to do some research to know if the purchase is worth it or not
- It requires checking the team compositions as soon as they are released
4. Buy below market price and resell
This technique consists of buying players at auction at a price below the selling price of the players, and then selling them again at the real market price.
In order ro buy players at the best price, we advise you to use the primary market, i.e. the auction system offered by Sorare.
To resell them, you will have no choice but to use the secondary market, i.e. to set the price of your player so that other coaches can buy him.
To properly detect these opportunities, you will need to use Sorare Data, the reference tool to get all the player statistics on Sorare.
- You need to know how to use Soraredata
- Small profits, you need to make volume
Buying and selling Sorare in the medium term
Let’s see some buying and selling tips on the medium term. In the medium term, we estimate that it will take you at least a few days and at most a few weeks to make a profit on your new players. Let’s take a look at these methods right now!
5. Buying players in the off-season
A good method is to anticipate the resumption of a championship. Indeed, if you do it in advance (several weeks minimum), you can find real good deals.
Look for players who are undisputed and successful in their clubs and buy them in advance. When the championship is about to start again, prices will gradually rise and you can make a nice capital gain just by keeping your players warm in your roster.
- You have to take the time to find out about the starting players
If you are not afraid to lock your money in a player for several weeks, then don’t hesitate and use this technique without moderation!
6. Buy players according to the Sorare calendar
Here the idea is to anticipate the matches that will take place in the next few game weeks. Many players play day to day and only care about the next GW. If you anticipate the next GW, you can buy players at the best price today, and sell them the day before the GW in question with a good profit!
Some GW are only playable with a limited number of clubs, this is the case for example for the weeks of the Champions League or the international break. By using Sorare Data’s “Player Finder” you can filter players to find those available in the next GWs.
- Beware of calendar changes
7. Buying players in bad shape
With Sorare Data (again), you can easily spot players who are underperforming at the moment.
If a player has 60 average in L40 and 50 in L5, it can be estimated that he will quickly get better stats and it will be possible to sell him for more money in the future (within two/three games).
Consider watching the “Price Graph” in the Sorare Data player record to see if indeed the player’s price has dropped recently.
- If the player’s misfortune lasts, you can end up with money tied up in this player for longer than expected
Buying and selling on Sorare in the long term
You don’t have much time to spend on Sorare and you want to make long-term investments? These techniques are for you!
8. Buy severely injured players
As you can imagine, when a player is seriously injured (cruciate ligaments, achilles heel or other), his price drops immediately. This is normal, the player will not be able to play in the Game Weeks, and therefore has no real value on the short term.
If you have a long term logic, this is a very good time to invest on this type of players. Don’t hesitate to let a week or two minimum pass before buying the newly injured player, as his price could continue to drop.
- The player’s injury may be prolonged and it is sometimes hard to know exactly when he will return.
9. Buying back-up goalkeepers with high potential
As we told you before, the price of goalkeepers tends to go up quickly. To anticipate this, it can be interesting to invest in high potential substitute goalkeepers.
You should therefore ideally look to buy young goalkeepers (U23) who are in the youth team of their national team, for example.
- The price of these goalkeepers is usually high, so you have to be ready to invest a certain amount of money and block it for a certain time
10. Buy new gems
What could be more exciting than investing in new gems and watching them blossom?
This last technique consists of buying young players who are not yet fully established. If you have good reason to believe that they will eventually become regular starters and explode statistically, then you should spend some of your budget on these sprouts.
- The most famous gems are often already expensive
