It’s an intriguing weekend of action in La Liga and in this article we take a look at the five midfielders who are in with a good chance of earning fantasy football points for your team. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco and Jorge Resurrecion Koke of Atletico Madrid, Rafinha of Barcelona, Sarabia of Sevilla and Raul Garcia of Athletic Bilbao all come under scrutiny.
Yannick Ferreira Carrasco – Altetico Madrid
Atletico Madrid are in top form having won their last 3 matches, scoring 7 and conceding just 1 goal. They have closed the gap on 3rd placed Sevilla to just 2 points and with an away tie to Malaga (who have managed to pick up just 1 point in their last 5 matches) they should have enough to make it 4 wins in a row. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco is the top performing midfielder in the charts for La Liga with 63 points in his 20 starts. With 8 goals, 4 assists and 13 clean sheets, he is one player who should certainly be under consideration for your team this weekend. He is valued at 8.5M and his price/performance ratio is 7.3.
Jorge Resurrecion Koke – Atletico Madrid
Staying with Atletico Madrid, as mentioned previously, are in with a great chance of 3 points this weekend. Jorge Resurrecion Koke has scored 3, assisted 6 and kept 14 clean sheets, which gives him a points total of 46. He is valued at 9m and his price/performance ratio is 5.6.
Rafinha – Barcelona
Barcelona will bid to keep in touch with Real Madrid at the top of the table with a win over struggling Granada this weekend. They trail the leaders by 2 points having played 1 game more and they can’t afford to let that gap widen. Rafinha has started just 13 matches this season, but has a points total of 45 thanks to 6 goals, 2 assists and 9 clean sheets. He is valued at just 5M and his price/performance ratio is 9.4.
Sarabia – Sevilla
Sevilla are without a win in their last 3 with 1 loss and 2 draws, however, they will bid to bounce back with a home tie against relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon this weekend. Sarabia has been an influential figure from midfield with 6 goals, 6 assists and 7 clean sheets. He is valued at just 2.5M and his price/performance ratio of 16.8 is one of the highest in La Liga.
Raul Garcia – Athletic Bilbao
Athletic Bilbao face bottom side Osasuna and they should have enough in their locker to take the 3 points that will keep their hopes of a top 6 finish alive. Raul Garcia has been one of their top performers this season with 7 goals, 3 assists and 7 clean sheets and looks worthy of his value of 8M.
