The goalkeepers to be deployed
Provedel: Spezia comes from 4 consecutive defeats, but he is one of the best goalkeepers this season. Against Cagliari it is a battle for salvation, he must be trusted.
Advice: he is clearly the best goalkeeper in Serie A in the last period. Against Salernitana, the worst attack in the league, he is undoubtedly to be deployed.
Maignan: at home against Empoli he can take home a clean sheet: he cannot be kept out.
Strakosha: Venice scores little, the Albanian is experiencing a good season, he should not receive malus.
Musso: at home against Genoa it is to be put: the rossoblù have only scored 3 goals in the last 10 league games.
Goalkeepers to avoid
Sepe: his Salernitana, after having taken 5 goals at San Siro against Inter, faces Sassuolo, who have returned from 10 goals scored in the last 4 games. Absolutely to be avoided.
Vicar: Empoli have the second worst defense of the league, away from home against Milan they risk scoring several goals.
Rosemary: the Lazio trident is scary, Venezia has conceded 7 goals in the last 2 outings: better not to field him.
Falcone: he is doing very well, but against a newly found Juventus it is better to keep him out.
Berisha: replaces the injured Milinkovic-Savic, has a client that is too difficult: Inter. Don’t deploy him.
The defenders to be deployed
Kyriakopoulos: after the good performance against Venice, he can certainly repeat himself against the rear of Salernitana.
Toloi: he shouldn’t have big problems in the defensive phase, given the lack of creative and realization capacity of Genoa. He will be free to push forward.
Kalulu: in Naples he convinced, he could reconfirm himself in a match that is undoubtedly more affordable on paper (at San Siro against Empoli).
Danilo: he is finding the security he has always lacked since he joined Juve: he can do well, trust him.
Acerbi: at home against Venice he must be deployed: the Venetians do not score much, they should have a quiet game.
Defenders to Avoid
Dragusin: bad against Inter, now he will have to contend with the terrible forwards of Sassuolo, who lately scare anyone.
Binks: will have to mark Piatek (together with Medel): it will certainly not be an easy task. Better not take risks, avoid deploying him.
Ostigard: in the last few games he did well, but Atalanta’s attacking players are very dangerous.
Rodriguez: he is the weak link in Torino’s defense: Inter forwards will be able to strike from his side.
Depaoli: on his wing he will have Politano: it is not the right match to field him.
The midfielders to be deployed
Stretcher: after a period of “crisis”, it has returned to high levels. Against Torino he is to be deployed, maybe he can still find bonuses after the two assists against Salernitana.
Malinovskyi: he is playing a great season, at home against Genoa he is absolutely worth wearing.
Saponara: he could leave the starter and could be one of the surprises of this day: Fiorentina at home are doing well and scoring a lot.
Milinkovic-Savic: Sergeant Lazio is in great shape, at home against Venice he can give bonuses.
Zaniolo: mixed performances for him this season. In Udine you can trust him, he must find continuity.
Midfielders to avoid
Sensi: after a super start with the Sampdoria shirt, he has dropped a bit. Against Juve he will not have many spaces and opportunities to make an impact.
Henderson: at San Siro against Milan he is to be left out: the Rossoneri will play the game and there will not be much to do in the attacking phase for the Empoli midfielders.
badelj: he can suffer from the characteristics of Atalanta midfielders, better not to field him.
Soriano: he just can’t get back to what he used to be, even against Fiorentina he must be left out.
Verdi: he is one of the most active in Salernitana, even when the team loses, but with Sassuolo it will be really difficult to create important opportunities, given that the neroverdi will aim to dominate the game.
The attackers to deploy
Lautaro Martinez: after the three goals to Salernitana and the good seal in the Champions League with Liverpool, the Bahia Blanca striker wants to continue scoring. Deploy it against Torino.
Muriel: he hasn’t scored since the twenty-first day, at home against Genoa he is to be put: he can return to make bonuses.
Property: he is at the top of the top scorers together with Vlahovic: with Venezia keeping him out is impossible.
Breakers: he’s having a great season: 9 goals and 2 assists, against Salernitana he can increase his haul.
Lion: it is the added value of this Milan, this year it is convincing. And then against an Empoli who concedes many goals, he must not be left out.
Attackers to avoid
Caputo: complicated match against a Juve that seems to be great again. For this day it is to be left out.
Pinamonti: very difficult match at San Siro against Milan. Do not field him, it is difficult for him to score.
Destro: he was the only one to score in Genoa, now he too has died. In Bergamo it is to be avoided.
Barrow: he has yet to find his optimal form, better not risk him against Fiorentina.
Nani: he is the ex of the meeting, but he doesn’t seem to be what he used to be. Not the right match to put it on.
