The return of La Liga means midday football here in the USA, which makes for something fun to watch while you’re quarantining at home. Though Sevilla sits in third place in the table and are hoping to hold onto Champions League qualification, Levante is just playing out the string: 12 points from Europe, nine points from relegation with 10 matches remaining.

DraftKings has several showdown contests for today’s match, including via DFS Showdown where finding the goal scorers can be key if they’re to be had. And with Sevilla having scored 41 times through 28 matches, and Levante conceded just as many, there should be some scoring today.

What we’ve learned from the Bundesliga action and through one round in Spain is home pitch is not really mattering in the “ghost games” as the Germans call them. And that’s before factoring in that Sevilla are the far better side anyway.

Here are our DFS picks for Levante vs. Sevilla in DFS showdown contests today:

Captain’s Pick

Lucas Ocampos ($15,000)

Has scored in his last five matches, including in Sevilla’s return against Real Betis last Thursday. He’s got 11 tallies in La Liga against just 7.4 expected goals, meaning he’s scoring at a rate of a true world-class #9. The in-form attacker is the most valuable player in fantasy, and he’s worth the premium here.

Flex Picks

Munir El Haddadi ($10,400)

Had six crosses, two shots (one on target) and four corners taken versus Betis on Thursday. As someone that can get forward down the flanks, the young Spaniard should find plenty of room today to create service.

Sergio Reguilon ($6,600)

Can get forward from his left back position, and might need to with enough of Sevilla’s offense sidelined. While he only has one goal, he’s also contributed four assists, and there’s no one on the Betis right side he’ll need to mark and get stuck in against. Also completes 77.9% of his passes from a defensive position, and can score for you with 0.7 points for every cross delivered. Had 30 passes and four corners taken against Betis.
