Spain’s La Liga returns to action this weekend after the final international break of the season.
Starting with Girona v Athletic Bilbao on Friday night, all 20 teams are in action over a 48-hour period.
We’ve had a look at who we think the smartest fantasy La Liga picks are for the upcoming fixtures.
Have a read and see if any tips stick out which might suit your fantasy La Liga team this weekend.
Goalkeeper – Keylor Navas (Real Madrid) – 7.0 million
Zinedine Zidane’s return to Real Madrid has seen Keylor Navas return as his first-choice goalkeeper selection in place of Thibaut Courtois. Navas will be expecting a clean sheet this weekend at home to bottom-of-the-table Huesca. Navas has 14 points this season.
Defender – Djene (Getafe) – 5.5 million
Getafe have only conceded 9 goals in 13 home games this season. They play Leganes at home this weekend. Leganes have the second-worst away record, only managing 10 goals in 14 games on the road. Djene is a good budget-choice selection for Getafe. Djene has 23 points this season.
Defender – Gerard Pique (Barcelona) – 7.5 million
Barcelonal’s Gerard Pique is the highest points-scoring defender in fantasy La Liga this season. Barcelona are at home to Espanyol and Pique is likely to add more points to his tally in that game. Pique has 61 points this season.
Defender – Vitorino Antunes (Getafe) – 6.0 million
Another Getafe defender for the team. Antunes has 46 points this season.
Defender – Jordi Alba (Barcelona) – 9.0 million
Jordi Alba has had a productive season at left-back for Barcelona. Alba has 53 points this season.
Midfielder – Gareth Bale (Real Madrid) – 11.0 million
Gareth Bale scored last time out and could bag another couple against Huesca this weekend. Bale has 46 points this season.
Midfielder – Sarabia (Sevilla) – 7.0 million
Sevilla’s Sarabia has been in fantastic form in 2018/19. It’s almost impossible to leave him out! Sarabia has 62 points this season.
Midfielder – Daniel Parejo (Valencia) – 8.5 million
Daniel Parejo is another midfielder enjoying some great form. Parejo has 50 points this season.
Midfielder- Sergio Canales (Real Betis) – 7.5 million
Real Betis’s Sergio Canales is a good pick for this weekend as his side travel to play 19th-placed Rayo Vallecano. Canales has 41 points this season.
Forward – Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – 20.0 million
You may have heard of this guy. No words needed from me. Messi has 143 points this season.
Forward – Wissam Ben Yedder (Sevilla) – 7.0 million
Sevilla’s in-form striker, Wissam Ben Yedder, is another good option up front. Ben Yedder has 78 points this season.
