With Real Madrid losing during the week to Valencia, La Liga is turning into one of the tightest leagues in Europe. They hold a 1 point lead at the top with Barcelona in 2nd and Sevilla just 3 points behind in 3rd. As they take to the field this weekend we will take a look at the midfielders most likely to earn points for your fantasy football side. Sarabia of Seviila, Jose Antonio Reyes and David Lopez of Espanyol. Pedro Leon of Eibar and Raul Garcia of Athletic Club all come under the spotlight.
Sarabia - Sevilla
Sevilla could join Real Madrid on points this weekend for 24 hours at least. They face an out of form Real Betis side who are without a win in their last 5. Sarabia has been in top form this season and the midfielder with 44 points is one player who should walk into your team. He is valued at just 2.5M and the midfielder who has scored 6, assisted 5 and 7 clean sheets in just 11 surely wont be valued at that next season.
Jose Antonio Reyes - Espanyol
Jose Antonio Reyes has made just 10 starts but he has contributed with 2 goals, 4 assists and 7 clean. sheets. His points total of 29 may well rise this weekend as Espanyol line up against Osasuna, who are becoming adrift at the foot of the table. He is valued at 5M and his Price/Perfromance ratio is 5.6, but with 15 points gained in his last 5 matches, he should certainly come under consideration this weekend.
David Lopez - Espanyol
The fact that Espanyol are playing Osasuna, means that 2 players from their side come under closer inspection this weekend. David Lopez has 26 points in 21 starts and valued at 5M. He should start this match and his price/performance ratio of 5.1 has every chance of rising after this match.
Pedro Leon – Eibar
Pedro Leon has been consistent this season and the midfielder who is valued at just 3M, should be a player that may well pick up some points this weekend. Eibar, who are 7th in the League, face Malaga and the home side, who have had some great results on their own patch this season, will be looking for the win that keeps them in touch with the top 6.
Raul Garcia – Athletic Club
Athletic Club have a home match against Granada this weekend and 3 points look likely to be staying there. Raul Garcia has scored 5, assisted 2 and kept 5 clean sheets and is one player who may well earn more points this weekend. He is valued at 8M and his price/performance ratio is 2.9.
