Fantasy La Liga Gameweek 1 Picks

The 2020-21 Spanish La Liga season kicks off on Friday night with Granada hosting Athletic Club.

Defending champions Real Madrid have been given the opening weekend off due to their participation in the Champions League over in Portugal last month. Likewise, Barcelona, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid all have the weekend off. Elche and Getafe will therefore not be in action for week 1 either as they were scheduled to meet last season’s top two.

All eight games kick off at different times meaning fans can watch all of their fantasy players on TV. With that in mind, here are eleven players to consider for your first squad of the new season:

Goalkeeper: Sergio Asenjo
Difficult to call a clean sheet in the opening weekend particularly with none of the big teams in action. Villarreal didn’t have the best defensive record last season but they finished fifth and host Huesca on the opening weekend so Sergio Asenjo could be a smart choice.

Top Five Fantasy Football GoalKeepers – La Liga – Round 18


La Liga returns this weekend with some crucial fixtures, both at the top end of the table where Real Madrid have opened up a little gap on their nearest challengers Sevilla, and at the bottom end where Osasuna are in severe danger of becoming stranded at the bottom. We take a look at Sergio Asenjo, Jan Oblak, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Diego Lopez and Yoel.

Sergio Asenjo – Villarreal

Sergio Asenjo has been one of the most consistent performs in La Liga this season and he tops the charts for goalkeepers. He has amassed a total of 45 points and has kept 7 clean sheets so far which makes a mockerey of his value which is just 3.5M. He will line up for Villarreal this weekend against Deportivo la Coruna and he must come under serious consideration.

Jan Oblak – Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid keeper, Jan Oblak is a terrific player to have in goals for your team. They have the second best defence and have only conceded 14 goals this season with Oblak keeping seven clean sheets in his 15 starts. His Price/Performance ratio is 6.2 and with a home match against Real Betis, he must be in with a great chance of making it eight clean sheets.

Kepa Arrizabalaga – Athletic Bilbao

Kepa Arrizabalaga of Athletic Bilbao is one of the cheapest keepers in La Liga. Valued at just 1.5M, he has emerged as a first pick and the young keeper four clean sheets in eleven starts so far in this campaign. Atletic face Leganes who are without a win in their last seven matches and there is every chance Atletic Bilbao will emerge with three points from this match.

Yoel – Eibar

Yoel has returned to the Eibar side during a tough run of games and has kept one clean sheet in his last five. He is valued at 5.5M and with Eibar lining up against a Sporting Gijon side who have lost their last four on the bounce, this present a great chance of three points and a clean sheet for Yoel and Eibar.

Diego Lopez – Espanyol

Espanyol keeper Diego Lopez is the third top performing goal keeper this season in La Liga. He is valued at 5.5M and with seven clean sheets in fourteen starts, he represents terrific value. Espanyol have a match against Valencia, who are without a win in their last eight in La Liga and Lopez should be worth a second look.
