Salvatore Sirigu: even if the Torino’s defense has slipped a little in the past few games, he has pulled off some amazing performances and perhaps, differently from Frosinone, they will be able to take advantage of Parma’s absences up front.
Mario Rui: he showed well even in a losing effort in Empoli. Genoa have had a lot of troubles coming up with goals lately, so the Napoli defenders are certainly intriguing in this round, especially Ghoulam, Rui and Kevin Malcuit who are the most involved offensively.
Fabrizio Cacciatore: SPAL are not great on the road, while Cagliari were very solid at home up until the match with Juventus. He is coming off two assists in a row and Darijo Srna is suspended. Luca Pellegrini is faring well too and he will not have to deal with Manuel Lazzari.
Francesco Acerbi: Sassuolo have sputtered in the away fixtures, while the Lazio defense has mostly been performed at a satisfying level in front of their crowd.
Gregoire Defrel: he is back in tip-top shape as he registered two goals and two assists in the last three games and should have plenty of minutes to work with against Roma after being initially benched on Wednesday. The Giallorossi have allowed a lot of goals recently and he is also an ex.
Marco Benassi: he has not been able to put one on goal in a while, but he notched an assist in the last game and Frosinone are usually quite susceptible to conceding to midfielders.
Ivan Perisic: he is coming off a great showing in Genoa and the bout with Atalanta could be one of those free-flowing and high-paced ones where he usually thrives. Needless to say, in that same game Josip Ilicic is worth considering due to his stellar form.
Miralem Pjanic: it feels like his goals and assists on set pieces generally arrive in top clashes and the one with Milan could be a deciding one title-wise for Juventus. In case he was rested, Rodrigo Bentancur and Emre Can would not be shabby picks.
Andrea Belotti: the Rooster is cooking with five goals in the last five games, including two braces. He will lead the charge against a nose-diving Parma squad that has conceded 19 times in the last seven fixtures alone.
Kevin Lasagna: he has hit the net in three of the last four games and Empoli, despite their solid results, have not really been able to prevent anybody from scoring this season. Ignacio Pussetto and Stefano Okaka are fine selections too and whoever starts between the two centre-forward will have an edge.
Rodrigo Palacio: Bologna basically punted the Atalanta game, resting all their veteran players and the ones that were one yellow card away from disqualification. The date with Chievo has been a fantasy manna and so the Felsinei’s best player could deliver.
