Salvatore Sirigu: Torino’s defence has had its up-and-downs, but they will face a Fiorentina team that has been lousy on the road and has scored just two away goals so far.
Francesco Vicari: Frosinone have made some progress, but mostly at home and they have been shutout in three of their four road games, so picking the leader of SPAL’s sturdy back-line could be a decent idea.
Pol Lirola: Bologna have yet to find the target away from the Dall’Ara Stadium, while Sassuolo is fresh off a clean sheet versus Sampdoria. The pesky right back could also do some damage on offence.
Joao Cancelo: the newcomer continues to impress at Juventus and he could extend his hot streak against Empoli, which have won just one game so far. Alex Sandro is also improving after three or four subpar performances.
Josip Ilicic: he is coming off a glorious hat-trick and he is a streaky player if there is one. Atalanta might have found the solution to their offensive woes thanks to his resurgence.
Joao Pedro: he has been very impactful as second-striker and he could take advantage of the shoddy Chievo defence on Sunday, which conceded 13 goals in their four away matches.
Dries Mertens: he had a slow start, but he is gaining momentum with three goals and an assist in the last four appearances. He is always venomous, either starting or coming off the bench, and the Roma’s back-line has been unreliable.
Manuel Lazzari: Frosinone have already given up 12 goals on the road, so SPAL’s reference point could be in line for some bonus points on Sunday.
Krzysztof Piatek: he failed to put his name in the scoresheet for the first time this season in the worst possible match-up for a striker, in Turin against Juventus, but he could pick up where he had left off versus Udinese, which have conceded nine goals in their last four fixtures, losing them all.
Mauro Icardi: he has re-claimed his role of main and humongous catalyst in Inter’s offence and he has hit the net six times in his last six outings. Lazio are in good form, but they tend to crumble when facing elite competition.
Cristiano Ronaldo: five goals and five assists for the Portuguese ace so far in Serie A, who has picked up bonus points in the last six Serie A games. Empoli are generally pretty forgiving in the back, so he could have some room to operate on Saturday.
