Serie A Fantasy Picks – Round 35


David Ospina: he is reportedly drawing the starts in order to trigger the option to buy him from Arsenal, either way, he or Alex Meret are in a good spot this week since Cagliari would have by far the worst clip in terms road goal if they had not scored three to Chievo and they might be without their second banana Joao Pedro on Sunday.

Federico Fazio: Roma have turned it around defensively, conceding just once in the last three matches and this week they will tangle with a Genoa team that has scored in just three of their last ten fixtures. The Argentinian centre-back and Aleksandar Kolarov are also the most likely to contribute on the other end considering their remarkable season tallies.

Joao Cancelo: he has shown glimpses of his best form in the last couple of games and Juventus will continue relying on him offensively because they are undermanned. While extremely solid, Torino is the most prolific side.

Pol Lirola: the Spanish right back has put together a fine season, amassing six assists, and he could keep it going versus Frosinone, whose gloomy fate is about to be officialized. Speaking of Sassuolo, Stefano Sensi is performing very well recently.

Ivan Perisic: he has bagged three goals in the last five appearances, therefore he will be a top choice as Inter travel to Udine, which have given up at least a goal in nine of their last ten matches. Radja Nainggolan is in strong form too among Inter midfielders.

Dries Mertens: it’s better to strike when the iron is hot and the Belgian attacker kept it churning last week with a free kick in Frosinone and if Cagliari play in Naples with the same relaxed attitude they had in Rome, Napoli’s offense will easily have its way on Sunday.

Lucas Paquetà: he looked good in his return from injury last week and he might have an even more prominent role in the upcoming match with Bologna, which have kept just three road clean sheets thus far.

Jasmin Kurtic: the clash with Chievo is surprisingly more difficult now than they have been relegated, but the Slovenian midfielder has come through for SPAL numerous times.

Edin Dzeko: the Bosnian striker has done most of his damage on this road so far and he could benefit from Roma’s improved form in Genoa There are some concerns about a recent ankle injury: in case of a forfeit, Stephan El Shaarawy would be the most likely one to pick up the slack scoring-wise.

Francesco Caputo: Empoli need wins in the most desperate way to keep some hope alive after being defeated by Bologna. Their problem has not been the offense though, which has kept producing, and their head honcho will have another good opportunity to deliver against Fiorentina, which have conceded a lot away lately.

Gervinho: the absence of Roberto Inglese has hurt him too as he has not been that effective without a can opener next to him, however he should have some room to maneuver against Sampdoria, which are one of the leakiest teams on the road and will have to deal with some big absences defensively.
