Thomas Strakosha: Lazio have one of the best statistical home defenses in the League and, in this round, they will host Udinese, which have instead scored the second-least goal thus far. The Albanian goalkeeper is not very talked about, but he is as reliable as they come.
Matthijs De Ligt: he is coming off his two best performances in black-and-white and could keep it rolling against Sassuolo, which are feisty but not indomitable. Juventus have allowed multiple goals at home just once.
Milan Skriniar: the Nerazzurri defenders will be in an ideal spot this weekend since SPAL have netted the grand total of zero (0) goals in their six away matches. After Stefan De Vrij found the target against Torino, it could be his turn.
Gianluca Mancini: Roma have tightened it up in the back and have allowed two goals only once in the last eight rounds and their next opponent, Hellas Verona, are certainly not known for their potent offense, although they are getting better there. He broke the ice in the last game and chances are it will not be the last time he puts his name in the stat-sheet.
Hirving Lozano: he is one of the few Napoli players that is trending up even though the team has been a mess for a while, especially off the pitch. He has tallied one goal and one assist in the last three Serie A appearances, adding one in Champions League as well.
Alejandro Gomez: the driving force of Atalanta resumed scoring after a while against Dinamo Zagreb and, even though it has not translated into bonus points, he is showing pretty well domestically too. He might be able to come through taking advantage of the plum match-up against the short-circuiting Brescia. Josip Ilicic is a recommendable pick as well, especially if Luis Muriel will be held out by an injury.
Radja Nainggolan: he is going through one of his best personal stretches in recent years and he has posted two goals and three assists over the last two games. He and Joao Pedro could deliver again versus Sampdoria, which have been defeated in five of their six away contests.
Gaetano Castrovilli: Fiorentina sorely missed his playmaking and dynamism against Verona, where he was suspended. They have the date with Lecce on the docket, which will not be a turkey shot but La Viola will surely have room to attack.
Gonzalo Higuain: the Juventus strikers are apparently taking turns and, since he mostly rested on Tuesday, he should be in the starting XI on Sunday and take advantage of the fact that Sassuolo have always surrendered at least a goal in their past seven matches.
Lautaro Martinez: he and Romelu Lukaku have another choice match-up coming up as SPAL have been awful on the road.
Andrea Belotti: it looks like he avoided a major injury despite subbing off very early against Inter and he could be able to torch Genoa’s defence, which are tied for the lousiest in Serie A. If he was unable to go, Simone Zaza will have to pick up the slack
Just missing the cut: Joaquin Correa and Ciro Immobile could be primed for another strong performance in a favourable home match-up; Lorenzo Pellegrini and the other Roma midfielders will have to step up sans Nicolò Zaniolo; Napoli have given up just four goals at home so far, so it could be wise to select one of their defenders; Rade Krunic has been a positive insertion to the lineup and he has not been brought down by the Milan stench yet. Dejan Kulusevski will have another chance to shine in that bout.
