FORWARDS

Lionel Messi, BAR at PSV ($13,000): This is almost a perfect spot to spend up after Barcelona scored four in the first meeting, including three from Messi. In the two matches since he returned from injury, Messi has two goals, one assist, 11 shots and six chances created, and not only does he have the best odds to score on the slate, he also has the highest floor. Neymar ($13,500) has a thigh injury and is oddly priced above Messi with a tough matchup against Liverpool, while Harry Kane ($12,500) has no floor and did nothing against Inter in the first meeting.

Dries Mertens, NAP v. CRV ($10,000): Mertens is almost as easy as Messi because he has the second-best odds to score on the slate. Napoli are the biggest favorite with the most expected goals, and that's where Mertens comes in. He's averaging 2.15 shots on goal and 2.86 chances created per 90 minutes in league play, and his only two starts in the Champions League came against PSG, so the matchup with Crvena Zvezda should boost his UCL averages.
