Serie A Best Fantasy XI – Round Six

Thomas Strakosha (7 points): Lazio wiped out Genoa, but he still provided a significant contribution by pulling off an amazing safe on a great header by Cristian Romero that could have tied the game right away. He found a proper way to celebrate his 100th appearance with the Biancocelesti.

Stefan Radu (9 points): on top of contributing to the clean sheet, he scored with a jaw-dropping strike in the top corner that left even his teammates amazed. It was just his fourth goal despite the long career in Serie A.

Jens Larsen (7 points): he has been quiet so far this season, but he was instrumental in a much-needed win for Udinese with a sweet cross from the left flank for Stefano Okaka. He could continue to benefit from having a bigger target in the box.

Luiz Felipe (7 points): like last season, he has emerged as the best option to complement Francesco Acerbi and Stefan Radu in the back and he did some damaged on the other end as well, as he powered forward and linked up with Ciro Immobile to create the final goal of the contest.

Alejandro Gomez (10 points): he put on a show against Sassuolo, opening the dances by waltzing through defenders and toe-poking the ball past the goalie that was coming out and then bagged his second with another nifty finish. After three assists, he is now on the board with two goals as well, retaining his star status.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (8 points): another awaited return to the fantasy forefront as the Serbian giant had not done much so far this season. He slotted it home with great accuracy to give Lazio the lead in the early going and then assisted Felipe Caicedo’s goal with a lovely through ball.

Stefano Sensi (6 points): another goal for the Inter midfielder, who found the target from outside the box with the help of an involuntary deflection by a teammate. He is on such a tear that his touches leads to good things even when he misses, as a scuffed shot allowed Alexis Sanchez to punch it in from close range.

Dejan Kulusevski (6 points): he was due for a goal after faring so well at the beginning of the season and he scored an easy one after two minutes in the Torino game pursuing a scuffed shot by a teammate. Then the slide rule pass to assist Andreas Cornelius was a thing of beauty.

Miralem Pjanic (6 points): two goals in a row for the Bosnian maestro and the surprise is that none was on a set piece. A slight deflection early in the shot aided him too, but the strike was already sterling to begin with. He is getting more comfortable in Maurizio Sarri’s system, which basically revolves around him.

Duvan Zapata (6 points): he logs big numbers even when he is apparently having a quiet day. Papu took centre-stage versus Sassuolo, but he was more than content to play second fiddle as he buried a thunderous header and picked up an assist.

Ciro Immobile (6 points): he left the skirmish with Simone Inzaghi in the rear-view mirror with a fantastic display against Genoa, where he perfectly set up Milinkovic-Savic with a square ball on a counter, and he could have had a couple more identical assists, and then netted one of his own escaping past the offside trap. He is back to his capocannoniere form.
