La Liga DFS will keep us occupied on Friday, with the league offering one of its best matches of the remaining schedule. First place Barcelona travels to face third place Sevilla FC at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, with a 4 p.m. ET start time.

We’ve got a look at some ideal Showdown picks to consider ahead of the match. Set your lineups here.

Captain’s Picks

Lionel Messi ($19,200) has to be the top option in this match after the performance he put together in his last outing. He scored a goal, drew six fouls, and connected on 61 accurate passes in his first game since March. He has the highest ceiling in the contest and should continue to be highly involved as the season goes on.

Lucas Ocampos ($13,500) is Sevilla’s most dangerous weapon. He scored in five straight games before being held scoreless in his last match. Although he failed to score in the 4-0 loss his team suffered against Barcelona earlier this season, he’s dynamic enough to bounce back.

Flex Plays

Jordi Alba ($5,600) did a little bit of everything in Barcelona’s last match and tallied one goal and an assist. He totaled 25.4 DKFP in the contest and could continue to me more involved in the offense. Another full back to keep an eye in is Sergio Reguilon ($6,000). Barcelona’s relentless attack will put a lot of pressure on him, but he likes to get forward and shoot. His 10.5 DKFP is promising, and so are his goal and four assists this term.
