Sevilla and Valladolid have a La Liga match set for Friday at 4:00 p.m. ET. DraftKings has Showdown contests available for the game, and we break down some ideal picks below. Here are the players you should keep an eye on.

Captain’s Picks

Five different players have accounted for the five goals Sevilla has scored since the season resumed earlier this month, and Lucas Ocampos has only netted one goal on a penalty during that time. This game could be one where unconventional captains are ideal because of how much variance Sevilla’s offense has displayed.

Jesus Navas ($12,600) has tallied double-digits in DKFP in three of his last four games and has sent in a healthy helping of crosses during that time. If this is a low scoring game, rostering him and one goal scorer might be enough to get the takedown.

Sevilla is also one of the better defensive teams in La Liga while Valladolid has scored the second fewest goals (26). Playing Tomas Vaclik ($13,800) could be the right play if your banking on a shutout.

Flex Plays

While I’m not high on Ocampos ($11,400) as a captain after three straight single-digit outings, I don’t think you can pass on flexing him. He’ll still likely be rostered at a high percentage and can be an asset even if he doesn’t score by crossing the ball and drawing fouls.

Ever Banega ($10,600) leads Sevilla in assists (6) and has over 100 crosses this year. He ‘s drawn more fouls than Ocampos by a narrow margin and creates more chances than any player in this game. Stacking with Sevilla’s most impactful offensive players will likely be the best strategy to produce points in this game.
