Serie A Best Team to Pick – Round 24


Here are the proposed players to pick ahead of a very interesting Serie A round.

Alisson: Roma’s defence remained stingy even through a tough period and on Sunday they will host the cellar dwellers Benevento, which have failed to score in their last five road games. The Brazilian goalkeeper has been a pleasant surprise for Eusebio Di Francesco’s side.

Medhi Benatia: the match-up is not particularly easy this time, as Juventus will travel to Florence, but the Bianconeri’s backline deserves recognition because they have conceded only one goal in the last ten fixtures.

Pedro Pereira: he looked OK against Lazio in his first game back in Serie A, relieving Aleandro Rosi who got hurt right away. Genoa’s defence has been sturdy so far this season and Chievo are having a hard time finding the back of the net lately.

Bartosz Bereszynski: the Polish right back has been a reliable contributor and proved to have a pretty high ceiling. Sampdoria will take on the up-and-down, but mostly down, Hellas Verona on Sunday.

Cengiz Under: he decided the last game with a terrific goal and has definitely earned some more minutes and starts. Benevento have always lost on the road so far and has conceded six goals in the last two away matches, 25 in 11 bouts overall.

Suso: the Spaniard finally resumed scoring last week and it was one of his usual stunners. He will try to keep the good things going as Milan make a visit to Ferrara, against a Spal team that is usually pretty forgiving in the back.

Dries Mertens: he has scored in two games in a row and looked re-energized after the break. Even though Napoli are facing a tough opponent, Lazio, he needs to be ridden no matter what when he is in a hot streak.

Iago Falque: while his teammates on offence have been in and out of the lineup because of injuries and have been inconsistent, he has been the centrepiece of the frontline for both Sinisa Mihajlovic and Walter Mazzarri. He has already scored nine times so far and Udinese have slowed down recently.

Gonzalo Higuain: similarly to Mertens, the top players have to be trusted even when the game is not comfy on paper, however Fiorentina have suffered some nosedives in the recent past. He is coming off a hat-trick.

Fabio Quagliarella: Verona have allowed 22 goals in 11 road matches and the veteran striker has been magnificent so far, leading his team with 16 scores already.

Leonardo Pavoletti: he will face Sassuolo, his former team which never really gave him a chance to be the main striker and has also been incredibly porous, having conceded ten goals in the last two outings. The Sardinians are not exactly road warriors, but they have indeed scored in five of their last six away matches.
