Pau Lopez: Roma have not given up more than one goal in four consecutive contests and they will face the least productive offense on the League, Udinese’s, which has scored just five times so far. The Spaniard goalie is not very flashy but he gets the job done.
Matteo Darmian: Parma have a plus match-up on the docket versus Verona, which famously have trouble hitting the net. Their back-line is down to bare bones after the injuries to Bruno Alves and Riccardo Gagliolo, but it should be enough in this one and Darmian also participates actively to the offense.
Theo Hernandez: he has been one of the few Milan players to stand out during their crisis and he has already bagged two goals. They will tangle with SPAL on Thursday, which have been struck out in their four road games.
Marco Calderoni: he has the same haul as Hernandez, with both goals coming on the road, where Lecce have been pretty good. The match-up against the moribund Sampdoria, which are tied with Udinese in terms of production, is pretty palatable.
Joao Pedro: Cagliari are certainly one the most surprising team of the season so far and they could keep it rolling versus Bologna. Pedro has the most upside out of their midfielders since he plays as second striker, but also Radja Nainggolan and Nahitan Nandez are in good form.
Jeremie Boga: he is getting his mojo back after a poor start of the season, recording a goal and assist in the last two matches. It should not be long until he takes over from Gregoire Defrel. Sassuolo had a slump-buster against Verona and have generally been better at home. Staying with the Nerovedi, Alfred Duncan has been an assist machine.
Alejandro Gomez: he has been a star no matter what, already tallying four goals and five assists. He will be up and running again in the key clash with Napoli, which have not been dominating defensively.
Dejan Kulusevski: he moved to false-nine with both Roberto Inglese and Andreas Cornelius on the shelf and he showed well despite facing Inter’s stout back-line. He will have an easier time against Verona.
Lautaro Martinez: he is going like gangbuster even in matches where he does not find the target, so he is a fine selection every week. Brescia are on a downward spiral and things could snowball against them.
Cristiano Ronaldo: he will be back in the lineup against the Griffon and will try to solve Juventus’ finishing woes. He has always scored in home matches so far.
Ciro Immobile: he has been sowing destruction this season, so it is obviously recommendable to keep him in the lineup until he cools off, but it is not a given that it will be happen anytime soon.
