Serie A Fantasy Picks – Round 17

Juan Musso: Udinese have been sturdy since Davide Nicola took over and conceded multiple goals only to Atalanta. This week, they will be facing a Frosinone team that has failed to score in the last three road games. The goalkeeper has been trustworthy so far.

Kalidou Koulibaly: the Napoli back-line is improving and have managed to keep three clean sheets in the last four games. They will host SPAL on Saturday, which have had troubles in away fixtures so far. He has been dominating opponents with his physicality recently. Any Azzurri defender is worth considering. 

Sime Vrsaljko: Inter’s defense has generally shown better at home, but they will have a nice opportunity to pick up points versus Chievo, one of the least prolific teams in the League. He has solved his physical issues and could be a weapon offensively on his day.

Bruno Alves: Parma are not in a great moment of form, but they will have an opportunity to turn the ship in the Derby with Bologna, which have found the target just six times away from their own turf. He has proven to be a remarkable leader in his second stint in Serie A.

Rodrigo Bentancur: fresh off a forced rest day, he will be up and running against Roma, which have certainly been plenty vulnerable in the back in recent matches. Juventus’ defensive castle will be tested, but they have kept five clean sheets in a row.

Joaquin Correa: Lazio are in a funk, but they would be even if a worse spot if the Argentinian playmaker had not assumed primary role on offense, making up for the poor form of the renowned teammates. Cagliari have conceded in almost all their road games and should again be very short-handed. Marco Parolo would be a decent pick as well, as generally his absences from the scoresheet have not been long this year.

Stefano SensiSassuolo will be without their best midfielder recently, Alfred Duncan, so it will be likely up to him to pick up the slack. He recently shown very interesting things as deep-lying playmaker, but he could go back to a more offensive role in this one.

Rodrigo De Paul: he has been a steady force for the Zebrette all year and, barring a superb new coach bump, Udinese’s attack could feast on a team that has given up the most goals in Serie A so far and more than two per game away.

Francesco Caputo: if it was not for a missed penalty against Atalanta, he would have picked up bonus points in seven straight appearances. The numbers are still excellent, as he has found the target five times and set up two teammates in this stretch.

Arkadiusz Milik: he has scored four times in the last three games, solving a pair of tricky situations for the Partenopei and, either starting or coming off the bench, he will be in good position against SPAL, which have been lousy defensively on the road, while Napoli have a tendency of piling up against the minnows at home.

Duvan Zapata: Genoa-Atalanta could be a high scoring affair as both teams have struggled defensively, the Bergamaschi exclusively away. The Colombian striker has been raining hellfire on the adversaries in the last few showings, totaling five goals in the last three matches. Then obviously there is always a case for Serie A’s pichichi Krzysztof Piatek.
