Serie A Fantasy Picks – Round Two

Juan Musso: Udinese were very sound against Milan and managed to stymie most of the opponents’ offense. They might be able to replicate that against Parma and the Argentinian goalkeeper is a sure thing by now.

Milan Skriniar: he is the only one standing in Inter’s big three in the back, as Diego Godin and Stefan De Vrij are currently injured. Despite the make-shift rearguard, the Nerazzurri could still be able to stop a Leonardo Pavoletti-less Cagliari that could not hit the net against Brescia last week.  

Hans Hateboer: he continues to be the undisputed starter on the right wing since Timothy Castagne is on the mend and he made the most of it by assisting Robin Gosens in Ferrara. It may be his turn to deliver against Torino, but in any case he will not have the nuisance of dealing with Cristian Ansaldi, who is out of commission.

Takehiro Tomiyasu: he had a strong debut against Verona and quickly leapfrogged Ibrahima Mbaye in the pecking order. SPAL could have some trouble producing on the road, so he and Mitchell Dijks could be worth considering in this round.

Suso: he was basically the only Milan player to get anything going against Udinese and the issues of the new, and maybe quickly deceased, scheme certainly do not stem from his performance. If the Rossoneri break through against Brescia, he will most likely be involved.

Luis Alberto: he carved up Sampdoria’s back-line with his brilliant passes and might have some success against Roma, which uses an equally high offside trap. Joaquin Correa is in a good spot too, but he already scored last week.

Kevin-Prince Boateng: he made an impact right away with a surgical cross-shot against Napoli and he should be ready to start with one more week of practice in his legs. He is also a former Genoa player, which does not hurt.

Hamed Traore: Sampdoria looked very combustible, so few Sassuolo attackers should be considered in this round. The youngster will not play in the hole with Domenico Berardi back from suspension, but he will still try to do some damage out of the midfield.

Cristiano Ronaldo: he was uncharacteristically imprecise in the season opener, but the fact that he had so many clear-cut chances bodes well for his capocannoniere odds. He had one of his best outing at home against Napoli last season and the Partenopei were a little shaky versus Fiorentina.

Lautaro Martinez: he was the most active Inter attacker against Cagliari even though he did not manage to score or assist, like pretty much all his teammates did instead. He will not be that unlucky again if he has a similar performance.

Gianluca Lapadula: Lecce showed a little something offensively against Inter and will be in a much better situation in the date with Verona, so their main scoring threat represents an appealing selection.
