Serie A Round 21 Fantacalcio Player Trends: Stock Up

The race for UEFA competition berths in Italy heats up as we prepare to head into matchday 21 of Serie A play this weekend.

Theo Hernandez and an Ante Rebic second half masterclass carried Milan to a late 3-2 win at home over Udinese, while the Rossoneri’s rival Inter dropped points away to Lecce in a 1-1 result.

Milan’s sluggish back-ups fail to impress on the European stage

AC Milan kicked off their Europa League group stage away at Dudelange earlier this evening and managed to get away with all three points, after Gonzalo Higuain scored the decisive goal in the second half.
