Serie A Best Fantasy XI – Round 38

Andrea Consigli (7 points): as expected, the final round was filled of goals as it has been the case for most of the season, and just four goalkeepers managed to keep the clean sheet. Wojciech Szczesny technically did not earn one because he did not finish the match, even though he had already subbed off when Juventus conceded, and he picked up an assist thanks to a sweet punt-kick. The nod goes to the Sassuolo mainstay, who parried away every attempt by an undermanned Lazio.

Omar Colley (9 points): Sampdoria easily tamed the low-wattage Parma attack Saturday night without breaking a sweat, and the Gambian powerhouse recorded his second goal of the season by finding himself at the right place at the right time for an easy tap-in on the opposing box. 

Georgios Kyriakopoulos (7 points): he could have had a bigger day if he was not sent off for two very clumsy tackles that earned him a red card, but the clean sheet and the missile from distance that broke the deadlock against Lazio still allow him to be among the top defenders for this matchday.

Theo Hernandez (5 points): Atalanta were not their usual explosive selves Sunday night, but Milan still deserve a lot of credit for holding the most prolific attack in the League scoreless, and the French fullback, who continues to be sunned by his national team, was the usual wrecking ball down the flank.

Pedro Pereira (5 points): it took a match with no meaning for Crotone to blank the enemies, a Fiorentina team that did not really come to play but was still dangerous given the presences of Dusan Vlahovic and Franck Ribery, and the peppy Portuguese fullback gets the token spot representing the whole back-line since Koffi Djidji was booked and Luca Marrone is listed as a midfielder.

Franck Kessie (10 points): the Rossoneri did not overexpose themselves versus the Goddess but rather went with an opportunistic tactic, attacking in small doses. Two of their forays yielded penalties, and the Ivorian international buried both, improving to 13 goals in what has been a career year for him, considering that he has also dished four assists.

Antonio Candreva (6 points): the Sampdoria winger did not relent despite the relaxed nature of the match against Parma and rounded out an excellent campaign with two assists, splendidly interplaying with Fabio Quagliarella on the first goal, while the second helper was inadvertent as Colley intercepted his shot. He finished with five goals and eight feeds.

Adrien Rabiot (4 points): the Frenchman drew incredibly high praise from Andrea Pirlo in the post-game after concluding his season on a high note by keeping his aplomb in front of the goalie after a timely channel run where he benefitted from a quality combination between Juventus attackers, bagging his fourth goal in Serie A play.

Alvaro Morata (7 points): the Spanish forward filled in for Cristiano Ronaldo and cashed in on the great offensive production by the Bianconeri in the romp of Bologna, reaching the double-digit threshold thanks to a little nudge in the empty on a generous pass by Paulo Dybala and then slipping past the defenders on a long-ball directly by Szczesny.

Domenico Berardi (6 points): he closed out in fittingly tremendous fashion, teeing up Kyriakopoulos on the early goal and converting a PK in the second half. He notched 17 goals and seven assists in his best season yet.

Lautaro Martinez (5 points): same haul for El Toro, who, however, lost a point because of a yellow card, as he connected with Ashley Young on the opening goal and later buried a penalty kick. He has been a dual weapon as well since he has scored 17 times and provided six helpers.
