Serie A Fantasy Picks – Round 8

AC Milan v AS Roma - Serie A

Alessio Cragno: the upstart goalie has had a decent season so far and saved a penalty in the stoppage time in the last home game against Sampdoria. More importantly, Cagliari will host Bologna, which have yet to find the target on the road.

Romulo: Genoa have won all three of their home matches, conceding just once. On Sunday, they will square off against Parma, who was shut out in two of their three away fixtures and will be without Gervinho and perhaps Roberto Inglese as well.

Ola Aina: the newcomer was immediately thrusted into a big role because of the injuries of his teammates and he has held his own, bringing a lot of energy on the flanks. Frosinone has scored just once so far, on a penalty. Torino are coming off two straight clean sheets. 

Joachim Andersen: a rare suggestion for a defender on the road, but Atalanta has hit the net just once in their last five games. The promising Dane has been a staple in the Blucerchiati’s back-line, having played every single minute.

Cengiz Under: the electric winger has scored in two of the last three Roma games and might be able to keep up his hot streak against the forgiving Empoli’s defence.

Dries Mertens: he finalized a gorgeous combination in the Juventus game and could be a nice spot versus Sassuolo, which allowed Milan to score four goals and already gave up 12 goals.

Ivan Perisic: SPAL have conceded seven goals in their last three matches, so he should have a nice opportunity to put his name back in the scoresheets, something he has not done since the third round.

Hakan Calhanoglufresh off a two-assist game in Europa League and one against Sassuolo, he seems ripe for the first goal in Serie A. The match-up against Chievo is certainly cozy, since they already allowed 16 goals. Similary to Perisic, he could use a slump buster.

Cristiano Ronaldo: fresh off his first break since joining Juventus, he will be ready to leave his mark in Udine as the Zebrette have conceded four goals in their last two outings and do not possess a stingy defence.

Krzysztof Piatek: he has scored in every single game so far this season, so riding him until he stops certainly sounds like a good idea. Genoa have a decent match-up coming up, against a short-handed Parma squad that lost two out of three road games.

Simone Zazahe scored the game-winner in Chievo and could be streaky. He will face Frosinone, which have had the worst defence in Serie A so far, having conceded 18 goals already.
