A titillating Serie A round is coming up, here are the suggested players to select.
Antonio Mirante: Bologna are not the most trustworthy team, but Verona have failed to score in their last four away games, so he could be a decent pick. His season has been solid but unspectacular as usual.
Cristiano Biraghi: Fiorentina have kept five clean sheets in the last six outings and they will take on Spal this week, which is a gutsy team but not certainly an untameable beast. He is also no stranger to doing damage on offence.
Daniele Rugani: the Juventus back-line has conceded in the last two games, but they have allowed only five goals so far at home and they will face Sampdoria, which is surely less-than-formidable on the road. He has been dependable this season and he could get a chance to start in the midst of a busy stretch of the schedule. In fact, any Bianconero defender is worth considering.
Ervin Zukanovic: the Bosnian centre-back is having an OK season and Genoa will face Crotone, which are suspect on the road.
Adem Ljajic: the Serbian attacker has won the coach over and he has been extremely effective lately, either scoring or assisting in the last three games. Their three-headed attack is humming. Torino will visit the floundering Chievo on Saturday.
Dries Mertens: he is a in little scoring slump, but he will try to snap out of it in San Siro against Milan, which will be without their starting pair of centre-backs Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli.
Luis Alberto: he has put his name in the scoresheet in the last two showings and assisted against Bologna, so he has stayed prolific despite the dualism with Felipe Anderson. Roma’s defence has not been as staunch as at the beginning of the year lately.
Nicolò Barella: Cagliari will challenge the wavering Udinese, which have lost eight straight matches, in a key match-up. The youngster has been one of the few bright spots for the Sardinian this season
Giovanni Simeone: the determined striker has found the net in three straight matches, with some great goals as well. Spal’s defence is rather permissive and he can definitely be streaky.
Paulo Dybala: he is coming off a hat-trick in Benevento and he is a lock to start due to the suspension in the Champions League. He has recorded seven goals in the last six matches, finally looking like himself after a hamstring injury.
Matteo Politano: he is leading the charge for Sassuolo in a crucial part of the season and he has bagged two goals in the last three games, against very worthy opponents. This time, he will go against Benevento, which have lost every single road game so far this season, conceding a bunch of goals.
