DraftKings has a two-game main slate that includes one Serie A game and one La Liga game. We break down some ideal picks for each of the two games on top below. You can set your lineups here.

Juventus vs. Lecce

First place Juventus is up against a Lecce team that’s given up more goals (70) than any other team in Serie A. That makes Christiano Ronaldo ($12,800), who ranks second in Serie A with 22 goals, a must-have option. He averages 23.4 DKFP per game and easily has the highest floor and ceiling in the match. Ronaldo didn’t play in his team’s 1-1- draw against Lecce earlier this year but could make a huge difference this time around.

Paulo Dybala ($10,800) is second in goals (8) and assists (4) for Juventus and should be very involved with or without a score. Most lineups will be stacked with Juventus players, so finding less expensive options like Juventus assist leader Rodrigo Bentancur ($5,700) will be important. Lecce scoring isn’t likely, so banking on an involved defender with crossing upside can give you plenty of value. Marco Calderoni ($5,000) averages more than four crosses per game and intercepts passes at a high rate as well.

Sevilla vs. Valladolid

Jesus Navas ($6,300) has tallied double-digits in DKFP consistently since La Liga resumed play. He leads all players in the slate with 196 crosses and is the defender with the highest ceiling. I’d fade Lucas Ocampo ($9,900) amid his slump but consider Ever Banega ($8,100) to be a valuable asset because of his crossing. Rostering two defenders from Sevilla might be ideal, as Sergio Reguilon ($6,100) averages double-digits in DKFP like Navas.
