Serie A Best Fantasy XI – Round 37

Alessio Cragno (7 points): it was revenge of the defences in the penultimate round, as six teams managed to keep the clean sheet. Among their goalies, the Cagliari one stood out the most in the Juventus match, as he produced several great saves, with the best one coming on a late scorcher.

Danilo D’Ambrosio (9 points): Antonio Conte fielded him as tactical centre-back and the move panned out against Napoli as he was not shy in attacking despite the role and Napoli were outnumbered when it came to covering men, so he found himself wide-open in the box on a deep incursion and finished with aplomb.

Nikola Milenkovic (9 points): another goal for the Fiorentina defender, his fourth of the season, not with a towering header this time, but with a pretty volley from inside the six-yard box. On top of that, they hold Bologna scoreless, which is an achievement.

Federico Dimarco (9  points): he put his delicate left foot to good use against SPAL as he assisted two goals with his crosses, one on open play the other on a set piece. He is not a regular but he is another of those players who played to his full potential under the tutelage of Milan Juric.

Joaquin Correa (8 points): the trickster is back to peak form and Lazio surely missed him during his month on the shelf. He dribbled and bamboozled four or five defenders before wrong-footing the goalie on the first goal, then set up Ciro Immobile with a timely through ball that finally allowed the teammate to score.

Hakan Calhanoglu (6 points): he did it again, as he notched one more goal plus assist outing in the Sampdoria tilt. He punched it in from close range on a marvelous flick-on by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and then returned the favor with a slick pass on a counter.

Hamed Traore (6 points): he was the only guy in the front-line that had not produce in Sassuolo’s post-lockdown outburst but, after a string of good performance, he made sure to remedy that in the romp of Genoa, bagging a little volley from close range.

Marco Davide Faraoni (6 points): he was fielded in the back-line with so many defenders on the shelf for Verona but he provided some offensive contribution anyway, rounding out the score with a thumping header on a corner kick.

Federico Chiesa (14 points): he moved back to the attack since Franck Ribery was a late scratch and fully exploited that with his first hat-trick in Serie A, netting two opportunistic goals from inside the box and a dazzling curled shot against Bologna.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (10 points): he has gained steam as the games progressed in the resumption and he simply dominated Sampdoria, as he found the target with an imposing header and teed up Calhanoglu in the same manner. He capped off his fabulous display with a little finish on a fast-break.

Domenico Berardi (10 points): Sassuolo feasted all over Genoa and the winger was the main mastermind as he put one of his trademark lefty rainbows past the outstretched arm of Mattia Perin and assisted three goals thanks to his splendid passing and vision.
