Welcome #Playmakers to the Interleague Play as the Serie A, Premier League and La Liga are all in action today. I had limited time to break down the slate, so instead of the normal format, I’ll be issuing notes for each soccer team playing on today’s 5 game Classic slate on DraftKings, with notes for each play that I would potentially target per team. This isn’t the cleanest article I’ve done, but I hope it’s enough to help you all out. We’ll be sure to give it everything we’ve got to steer the group on the right path today, so if you enjoy the content, please consider giving our group / myself a follow on Twitter over at @DailyPlayAction / @AlexKrallDFS

Disclaimer: A major part of being successful in Soccer DFS is making adjustments once the Starting XI’s for each team are announced about one hour before each slate locks. If you are unable to make changes quickly when team news is revealed, we advise against playing DFS Soccer. One of the benefits of being a DPA Premium member, is that when starting lineups are confirmed, you can rest easy knowing that myself or a DPA staff member will be available in our chat room to go over your lineup with you, and provide overarching slate updates to the channel when necessary.

SPAL +155 | 19th in Serie A | have lost 5 in a row | 20th GF | T-14 GA

F: A. Petagna (+140 to score), 12 Goals, top GPP play for 8K
M: Valdifirori for crosses only 5K / Missiroli for Punt at 3.4k
D: T. Cionek at 4.3k can accumulate peripherals, GPP play,

Cagliari +190 | 11th in Seria A | have lost 5 of their last 6 | 7th GF | 12th GA

F: G. Simeone (+200 to score), goal or bust, Petagna is better for SPAL I think in this game
M: J. Pedro, crazy shot volume, highest upside in this game, expensive but contrarian at 8.9k
D: L. Pellegrini can get 6+ crosses agame, best crosser at 5.6k
PUNT: Nathan Nandez | M | $4,400 or Cigarini if starting

Hellas Verona +320 | 8th in Seria A | 2-3-1 in their last 6 | 15th GF | 4th GA

F: Di Carmine (+240) / Verre (+350) are GPP darts / goal or bust
M: Zaccagni 5.7k as a GPP play in adv position
D: Lazovic set piece taker and cross leader/ Faraoni 6.1K, 3G 3A, 2-9 crosses per game
Lazovic and Faraoni are the best bets here.

Napoli -110 | 6th in Seria A | have won 5 of their last 6 | 8th GF | 4th GA

F: Milik: expensive for a goal or bust option. Would rather pay up for Insigne if using NAP. Insigne one of best options on the slate.
M: Politano better as cash game option (crosses but doesnt score much), Fabian Ruiz is OK as well
D: Mario Rui 6.7k and Di Lorenzo 5.4k are the wing backs, and Rui is better, he becomes priority if Mertens/Callejon are out but both are fine options

Levante +500 | 11th in La Liga | 2-3-1 in their last 6 | 10th GF | 13th GA

F: Roger Marti $5,500 is their top goal scorer (12G) deep GPP option though as ATL has a very stout defense, Marti does take PKs though
M: Campana leadsthe team in crosses and takes sets / corners. Roshina has a floor as well but more upside, so I’d go Roshina in GPP and Campana as the safe floor cash option
D: Tono is fine as a punt, but nothing to love here really

Athletico Madrid -170 | 4th in La Liga | 3-3-0 in their last 6 | 9th GF | 2nd GA

F: Joao Felix always in play (high shot volume), Morata is my preferred striker but I think Costa will start. Costa will draw more ownership than what he’s worth as he has struggled this season
M: Koke is the man you want for set pieces / free kicks and Levante struggle to defend them, I like Koke to score a goal off a set piece today at 7.8k, Llorente interesting as a punt if he starts at 4.1k, Niguez decent but not special
D: Trippier 7.2k is their most offensive defenseman, I’d likely want shares of him in ATL stacks, if he doesn’t start then Lodi is OK but not a priority, I would like Arias as a floor option if starting at wingback 4.6k

Valladolid +240 | 15th in La Liga | 2-1-3 in their last 6 | 19th GF | 7th GA

F: Guardiola is their goal scorer, but tough spot vs Getafe in a low scoring game, not a guy i really want to target even at 5.8k, unal is the better striker i think but also more expensive 7k in a tough spot vs GET
M: Toni Villa is only 3.2k and set to start on the left wing, thats too cheap and he serves as a punt, Alcaraz has upside but this is a tough spot, Michel at 3.8k makes a lot of sense as punt if he starts (leads team in crosses /takes PKs)
D: Nacho is decent at 5k, can take a lot of crosses and has decent floor/upside combo at that price, still a bad spot for Valladolid in a low scoring cagey affair

Getafe +150 | 5th in La Liga | 2-1-3 in their last 6 | 8th GF | 4th GA

F: If Rodriguez starts, hes my top option at forward for Getafe, at 8.1k has +179 odds to score, and would likely find the only goal of this game
M: Cucurella is a top notch play and can do a bit of everything, leads team in assists, 2nd in crosses, takes some set pieces
D: Damian Suarez has the best floor / upside combo for a defender and leads Getafe in Crosses and corners, I also like Nyom who is cheaper at $4,200 who can generate chances and cross the ball
While the plays are attractive for Getafe, the goal total is set to 1/1.5 in this game, so tread lightly on Getafe offense unless using floor pieces that can generate crosses and dont rely on scoring a goal to produce.

Leicester City -150 | 3rd in Premier League | 1-3-2 in their last 6 | 3rd GF | 3rd GA

F: Vardy has been incredible and best odds on the slate to score at -125, goal or bust but this is a good spot for him
M: James Maddison is probably the best (and most expensive) play on the slate can easily get you 10+ crosses for a favored squad, CORE PLAY for me today, Harvey Barnes also a phenomenal floor/ceiling play at a discount, Perez fine for GPP
D: Chilwell a priority defender, can cross plenty and the price is very fair at 5100

Brighton Hove Albion +400 | 15th in Premier League | 1-4-1 in their last 6 | 13th GF | 11th GA

F: Maupay scored over the weekend and is a decent punt forward at 7.1k, he has 9 goals and has scored twice in his last 4 games, Trossard and March are OK but dont love either, I prefer Trossard I think
M: Mooy takes set pieces but I prefer Groß if he starts (leads team in crosses and corners), but this is a tough spot. Mac Allister if he starts is a LOCK for me at 4700, he is super talented and Brighton are lucky to have him
D: Burn is OK as a punt at $3,600
