La Liga weekend fantasy football picks

Defender – Jose Angel (Eibar) – 8.0 million

Eibar’s Jose Angel is a decent pick for this weekend with Eibar at home to Rayo Vallecano. Eibar have the fourth best home record in La Liga this season so a shutout is very possible. Angel has 15 points this season.

Defender – Diego Godin (Atletico Madrid) – 9.0 million

Diego Godin, like Jan Oblak, will be hurting after the 3-0 scoreline in Juventus. Athletic Bilbao will have their work cut out creating anything against Atletico Madrid this weekend. Godin has 61 points this season.

Defender – Anaitz Arbilla (Eibar) – 6.5 million

Another budget pick from Eibar. Anaitz Arbilla should be on the winning team this weekend so a clean sheet could well go along with that. Arbilla has 16 points this season.

Defender – Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid) – 6.5 million

Filipe Luis is the final defender selected this week. No surprise he is an Atletico Madrid player. Luis has 46 points this season.

Midfielder – Joan Jordan (Eibar) – 7.5 million

Joan Jordan is Eibar’s highest fantasy football scorer from midfield this season. I think he’ll pick up another few points against Rayo Vallecano so would be a nice pick for most fantasy La Liga managers. Jordan has 26 points this season.

Midfielder – Luka Modric (Real Madrid) – 8.0 million

Real Madrid bounced back from their Champions League elimination with a 4-1 win at Real Valladolid last Sunday. Now with Zinedine Zidane back at the helm, there is sure to be a lot more swagger about their game. Modric should impress against Celta Vigo. Modric has 33 points this season.

Midfielder – Sarabia (Sevilla) – 7.0 million

Sarabia has had a great season for Sevilla. He was instrumental once again in their 5-2 win over Real Sociedad and should carry his form into this weekend’s fixture at Espanyol. Sarabia has 62 points this season.

Midfielder- Jony (Alaves) – 5.0 million

Jony is one of the best budget-options for fantasy football managers this season. At just 5 million, the Alaves midfielder really is a bargain. He plays at bottom-of-the-table Huesca on Friday evening. Jony has 46 points this season.

Forward – Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – 20.0 million

Lionel Messi is a must-have almost every weekend. Who knows what the world’s best player will do at Real Betis this weekend. Just make sure he’s in your team. Messi has 129 points this season.

Forward – Wissam Ben Yedder (Sevilla) – 7.0 million

At 7 million, Wissam Ben Yedder is fantastic value as he is the third-highest fantasy football scoring striker in this season’s La Liga – behind only Messi and Luis Suarez. Ben Yedder scored a second-half hat-trick against Real Sociedad last time out. He could bring more of the same as Sevilla travel to Espanyol on Sunday. Ben Yedder has 74 points this season.

Team in full (4-4-2): Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid); Jose Angel (Eibar), Diego Godin (Atletico Madrid), Anaitz Arbilla (Eibar), Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid); Joan Jordan (Eibar), Luka Modric (Real Madrid), Sarabia (Sevilla), Jony (Alaves); Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Wissam Ben Yedder (Sevilla)
