Top 10: lots of goals and assists
At Fantasy Football it is important to bet on the right players, those who can bring bonuses or good ratings: this year, one of the “departments” where there is more abundance is undoubtedly the midfield, in which we can find several top players for this game. The most coveted and probably the most paid will be Federico Chiesa and Henrikh Mkhitaryan: the Italian wing is back from an excellent first season with Juventus, having scored 9 goals and 5 assists, while the Armenian attacking midfielder did even better, as he comes from 13 goals and 10 assists, so if you want a big name for your midfield try to catch one of these two, because they’re almost two strikers. Other players with an easy bonus and high performance are the three of Lazio, namely Luis Alberto, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Felipe Anderson: the Spaniard always gives quality to the Biancoceleste midfield and makes the difference, alternating seasons full of winning passes with years in which he is more inclined to score, the Serbian is the usual certainty with good ratings and a fair score of goals each year, while the Brazilian is the news of this season, even if he had already played in the Capital, leaving a good memory to the fantallenatori, so he deserves confidence because he will be able to amaze.
Slightly further back, but with great consideration, there is Ruslan Malinovskyi: the Ukrainian usually explodes in the second leg, which is why it will take a little patience with him, but his numbers are excellent, last year he finished with 8 goals and 11 assists. An important factor to evaluate, then, is that one of penalties: the two best penalties taker midfielders are Jordan Veretout and Franck Kessié: the first is almost infallible from the penalty mark and manages to score also with the ball in play, while the second is more likely to bring bonuses from “the eleven meters”, but often gets high ratings. In Roma we find two other big midfield players, Nicolò Zaniolo and Lorenzo Pellegrini: the 1999 class comes from a double serious injury but now has overcome all the physical problems and wants to make the difference again, as he has shown in the past with a good number of goals, while the class of 1996 is increasingly at the center of the Giallorossi game, acts as a “trequartista”, scores, is the deputy penalty taker, in brief, he has everything to give you many satisfactions.
We close with three names on the rise that can make your fortunes at a lower price than the other top, namely Piotr Zielinski, Roberto Pereyra and Brahim Diaz: the Polish can play as a midfielder in 4-3-3 or as a central third in 4-2-3-1, more likely the second option, and from there can hurt the opposing defenses, as he has repeatedly shown to know how to do, the Argentine is the main candidate to collect the inheritance of a certain Rodrigo De Paul. He took the penalties, he can also play close to the forward and he is the leader of his team, the Spaniard is becoming increasingly important for Milan, he is now a full-fledged regular and sees the goal, the bonuses will be there…
The good owners: good ratings and some bonuses
In addition to the top ones, the first slot ones, there are also the good regulars, who can very well occupy the second or third place in your formation hierarchies for their consistent performance and because sometimes they bring some bonuses. The first names that come to my mind in this category are those of Nicolò Barella and Antonio Candreva: the midfielder of Inter and the Italian national team is in great shape, he always plays and sometimes scores or gives assists, comes from a good score of 3 goals and 5 assists and can improve again, the outside of Sampdoria is a very reliable player, who pulls the place kicks and is deputy penalty taker, also is back from a year with 5 goals and 7 assists.
Three other names to keep an eye on are Mikkel Damsgaard, Antonin Barak and Matteo Pessina: the Danish has surprised last season and aims to improve further in this, the Czech is one of the regulars of the province that gives more guarantees, also comes from a year with 7 goals scored, he will try to confirm these levels, the Italian instead has scored only 2 goals in the last season but plays almost always and in the past has shown to have the sense of the goal, so you can bet on him.
The last four profiles we recommend are those of Gaetano Castrovilli, Giacomo Bonaventura, Razvan Marin and Fabian Ruiz: the midfielder of Fiorentina comes from a league between ups and downs but still closed with 5 goals, his teammate has had more or less the same performance, scoring just 3 goals, but this year seems to be on fire, the Cagliari midfielder is perhaps a surprise in this group, but last year he did very well with 3 goals and 5 assists, also place kicks, to conclude, the Spanish of Napoli will play almost always and has the “piede caldo”, his shots from outside are often lethal, so think about him too.
The bets: talents to surprise
A fantasy-team obviously cannot be made only by top or good regulars, it also takes those little-known players who cost little and can complete your squad, perhaps resulting decisive or otherwise important for your Fantasy Football: the bets, those players to study before the auction, those surprising talents that only a few people bet on but then make you proud if they do well. We start with two players who come from the promotion in Serie A and therefore have great enthusiasm, namely Mattia Aramu and Nedim Bajrami: the 1995 class of Venezia is back from a great season marked by 9 goals and 6 assists, He is an excellent penalty takers and is also good at pulling free kicks and corners, while the 1999 class of Empoli comes from 5 goals and 8 assists in the role of” trequartista”, he also pulls well from the penalty spot and is still very young, with his 22 years.
Other interesting profiles can be those of Tommaso Pobega and Teun Koopmeiners: the Italian can play both as a midfielder and as a “trequartista” and above all “sees the goal” well, considering the 6 goals in 17 appearances last season, The Dutchman has just arrived at Atalanta but will be able to carve out his space and be useful, for example in the set pieces, and comes from 15 goals in the past year, which 6 in with the ball in play and 9 by penalty.
To close here are other young and promising bets, namely Emanuel Vignato, Davide Frattesi, Ivan Ilic and Mohamed Ihattaren: the boy of Bologna is on the launch pad and is very appreciated by his coach, could have a lot of room, the second profile has just returned to Sassuolo after the loan to Monza, in which he distinguished himself with 8 goals, the Serbian candidate for a shirt as a regular and to give some bonuses, to conclude, the Dutchman was bought by Juventus who immediately turned him on loan to Sampdoria, where he will be able to show all his qualities and his talent.
