Serie A Best Fantasy XI – Round 18

Salvatore Sirigu (7 points): it took a great team effort by Torino to halt Roma and their trusted goalie was the tip of the spear, denying multiple efforts by Roma, even from point-blank range, and this time his efforts were rewarded with a clean sheet.

Rafael Toloi (7 points): Atalanta yet again dominated at home, keeping an easy clean sheet versus Parma and the centre-back made his presence felt on the other too, slipping the ball to Josip Ilicic before the final goal of the day.

The Hernandez (5 points): Milan did not get the result they hoped versus Sampdoria, but things could have gone worse if it was not for his goal-line clearance after Gianluigi Donnarumma only partially managed to deflect a point-blank attempt by Manolo Gabbiadini.

Amir Rrahmani (5 points): the Verona back-line returned to form in the clash with SPAL, completely shutting down the opponents in the final third and the newcomer has reached the status of certainty very quickly after coming to Italy.

Josip Ilicic (10 points): another dazzling display for the Slovenian attacker, who is only capable of scoring pretty goal, with a lefty volley right in the top corner and the easy finish after gliding between two defenders as the latest instalments of his technical feats.

Robin Gosens (8 points): the Dutch wing-back continues to be a force to be reckoned with on offense, notching his fifth goal of the year on a potent tap-in after a back-door cut and perfectly setting up Ilicic with a great cross later on.

Alejandro Gomez (7 points): El Papu got things started against Parma with an uncatchable rocket from distance, moving to seven in the scoring department, and interplayed with Remo Freuler for his six assist of the campaign.

Rodrigo De Paul (5 points): two goals in a row for the Argentinian fantasista and this one was lovely as well, as he juggled with the ball through Lecce defenders before firing it home, willing Udinese to a very welcomed victory late.

Cristiano Ronaldo (16 points): he netted his first Juventus hat-trick Monday, single-handedly taking down Cagliari. He pounced on a miscue by defenders for the first goal, dribbling the goalie with incredible ease, converted a penalty and finished things off with a close-range finish after a great cut behind the back-line.

Romelu Lukaku (8 points): among forwards, the field is so stacked this week that a player that scored twice, Ciro Immobile, did even make the team of the week. Lukaku slotted it home after 50-meter dash in Naples and later on tallied his 14th goal thanks to a howler by Alex Meret, who did not corral a central shot.

Andrea Belotti (8 points): he had not been great in the past month, where he was hampered by a chest injury. He surely looked like his best self in the Roma game, blasting one right under the bar to give his team the lead out of the blue at the end of the first half and completing the deed with a penalty late in the game.
