Serie A Fantasy Picks – Round 6 & 7


A two-game round is coming up, so it is better to play the hits rather than chasing longshots.

Emil Audero: Sampdoria have conceded the least goals so far, three, and the youngster certainly held his own. They have a reasonably favourable schedule, considering they will face Cagliari on the road, which will likely be without Leonardo Pavoletti and then will host SPAL.

Domenico Criscito: similarly to Blucerchiati, Genoa have two decent match-ups in the next four days, as they will face the sputtering Chievo at home and then pay a visit to the reeling Frosinone. The ex-Zenit has already picked up three assists.

Milan Skriniar: Inter is not super reliable, but it is one of the only two team to have two home games, the other being the crumbling Roma. The first one is not easy, since they will take on Fiorentina tonight, but La Viola was shut down in Naples. The other one is okay, versus Cagliari. Needless to say, Skriniar has been rock-solid so far.

Joao Cancelo: he is impactful even when he plays limited minutes and he has quickly shown that he is a better playmaker than fellow fullback Alex Sandro on the other flank. Juventus will head to Bologna on Wednesday and then tangle with Napoli on Saturday, which is less than ideal, but the truth is that there has not been any airtight defence so far in Serie A.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic: he is coming off a fantastic performance against Genoa, where he had a goal and an assist and looked like the Sergeant from last season. Lazio will head to Udinese midweek and then will square off with Roma in the Derby della Capitale. His partner in crime Luis Alberto, who rested in the weekend, could be a safe pick as well.

Radja Nainggolan: he had a goal called back against Sampdoria, but he has already bagged one with Nerazzurri and looks increasingly at ease at his new club. He is no stranger in delivering in big matches either. Ivan Perisic can be another dependable Biscione’s players this week.

Alejandro Gomez: he punished Milan with his third goal of the season on Sunday and he has already provided two assists. Atalanta will tangle with Torino and Fiorentina, two worthy opponents, but Papu has been one of the best midfielders so far. He looked a little banged up at San Siro, but his compatriot Emiliano Rigoni, who too scored thrice, can be an ideal replacement.

Gregoire Defrel: he slowed down a little because he could not possibly keep up that torrid pace, but he is primed to return to the scoresheets with two good match-ups coming up.

Cristiano Ronaldo: he netted a crucial goal in Frosinone and continues to shoot a lot. Juventus will continue to ride him since because of his Champions League and he will be looking to leave a mark in his first big match in Italy.

Gonzalo Higuain: he has found the target in three straights fixture with Milan, including a Europa League one, and he is becoming accustomed to the fine assistmen that support him now, starting with Suso. The Devil will lock horns with Empoli and Sassuolo in their next fixtures. He popped up very late into the injury report: his back-up Patrick Cutrone would not be bad choice either.

Krzysztof Piatek: the Serie A’s leading scorers have hit the net also in losing efforts, moreover, as mentioned, the Griffon has two comfortable encounters coming up. He has been the first one since Andriy Shevchenko to bury five in his first four appearances.
