Week 24 Liga preview: Goalkeepers

Gustavo Munua - great form
  • Levante's Munua is the second most valuable keeper (valued 15.17) and has been on an excellent run of form since returning to the first team fold in week 21: 10, 18, 16.5
  • But Levante come up against Real at the Bernabaeu this week for whom Antonio Adan will be making his first league start. Adan registered a week high of 20 pts at Espanyol last weekend. Good value at 13.65
  • Of last week's losers, several high flying keepers are now representing tempting value. Seville's Palop had a mare at Santander and is now 7.58, Valdes dropped to 18.96, and Atletico's De Gea dropped to 11.45. Palop has a relatively straight forward home tie against Hercules, while De Gea's out of form side travels to Zaragoza.
  • Reliable home picks include Ricardo at home for Osasuna against Espanyol, Diego Lopez
    at home for Villarreal and Sociedad's Bravo at home to Mallorca.

  1. Again, good work with the specific stats. For goalkeepers, it is especially useful to see how many saves they make (2 points apiece) versus how many goals they give up (-3 points). Valdés may not warrant the hefty price tag because he rarely has to make a lot of saves, whereas David De Gea on the right week can prove lethal.

    By the way, I also like the new widgets in the margin. They add a polished look to the site as a whole.
