Serie A Fantasy Picks – Round Five

Alex Meret: he got the day off during the weekend, so he will be back between sticks in his one as Napoli will host Cagliari, which might be satisfied with the two wins they got recently and therefore not push the opponents too much.Giovanni Di Lorenzo is in the same situation.

Stefan De Vrij: it is not great round for the top defences, so it could be a wise move to pick out the best one, as Inter have conceded just once, even though they have a difficult match-up against Lazio on the docket. He is an ex-Biancoceleste, so you never know.

Nikola Milenkovic: Fiorentina gave up two more against Atalanta, but they were stout the week before at home against Juventus. Sampdoria have managed to score just twice.

Theo Hernandez: he provided a small spark in the Derby and, since Ricardo Rodriguez is never really too impressive, the Torino game might be his chance to make the XI after the initial injury. The Granata are far from an offensive juggernaut and the Rossoneri matches have been so uneventful that it could be a good idea to select one of their defenders or Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Juan Cuadrado: he has been the most active Juventus player in the last two matches and each of their attackers will have to step it up a little sans Cristiano Ronaldo. It looks like the doubt in the lineup is between him and Aaron Ramsey and either is set to be a worthy selection.

Riccardo Orsolini: Bologna will travel to Genoa to have the opportunity to try washing off the burning loss to Roma against a club that has dropped two in a row and has conceded nine times so far. Orsolini and Roberto Soriano always few scoring opportunities.

Mattia Zaccagni: Verona have actually been better than originally thought to open the season and they will try to nab a W over Udinese, which instead have at the other end of the spectrum and hit the net just twice. Zaccagni has picked up an assist thus far and he and Valerio Verre play in a very offensive role.

Dejan Kulusevski: Parma have at time been lacklustre up front, but he has provided a ton of energy and has already been capable of providing a pair of assists. Sassuolo have been very exploitable defensively in their two road games.

Edin Dzeko: he has already logged three goals and will try to keep it going against Atalanta, which have been extremely suspect defensively and have had troubles containing any type of strikers.

Andrea Petagna: it is early but SPAL already have a big match on hand against Lecce. Petagna has found the target twice and could do it again against the most porous defence in the League.

Hirving Lozano: he had just a small cameo in the last round, so he could see a ton of minutes against Cagliari, which have conceded in all four matches so far. The Mexican forward seems poised to bag one at the San Paolo sooner later than later.
