DraftKings has several showdown matchups today for the massive match between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, and we’ve got some picks for where we think the best value is on the biggest soccer match of 2020. You can set your lineup here!

Captain’s Pick: Robert Lewandowski ($16,500)

The striker for Der FCB is expensive and he should be, but in a match likely overflowing with goals and Jadon Sancho possibly still not at full match fitness, he’s a must-play.

Lewandowski is one of the best poachers in the world, and needs less than a hair of space to create outstanding chances. He’s scored in both Bayern matches since the restart, and he’s likely to get at least one today if not more.

Flex Picks:

Jadon Sancho ($9,400)

Has come on as a substitute twice during the Bundesliga restart, generating just an assist in 36 total minutes. But you don’t hold down a player of his quality for a match like this, even if the transfer fee might be nine figures in the offseason. A spot of magic today from Sancho will make the Yellow Wall sing in their homes, and EPL club boards a bit sadder as his price increases.

Thorgan Hazard ($7,600)

Check the team sheet and make sure Lucien Favre has a place for this fulcrum that has scored four times in the last five matches. But if he does, with Bayern forced to account for Sancho a high line will be hard to hold. That should leave space for Hazard to be more of a playmaker, where he can threaten himself or serve as a quality provider.
