Probable formations and Fantaconsigli of the 17th day of Serie A

Once the international commitments are over, the teams are preparing to return to the field with the 17th day of the Series A: round that will open on Friday 10 December with Derby della Lanterna between Genoa and Sampdoria and will spread until Monday 13, with the challenge between Rome and Spezia to permanently close the games. Therefore, the fantasy football, with several interesting games for the many fantasy coaches. Below, we analyze the probable formations of the next round, any ballots and the names to bet on for this day.


Next commitment: Verona (away)

Unavailable: Gosens

Disqualified: Malinovskyi

Probable formation: Musso; Toloi; Palomino; Demiral; Zappacosta; Freuler; de Roon; Maehle; Pasalic; Pessina; Zapata.

Ballotings: Palomino-Djimsiti 51-49%; Zappacosta-Hateboer 55-45%; de Roon-Koopmeiners 55-45%; Pasalic-Ilicic 51-49%.

To be deployed:

  • Toloi – back from the assist against Napoli, he can offer a fair guarantee in terms of voting
  • Pessina – start of the season complicated by injuries and still no bonuses, but Verona could be the right opponent to break free
  • Muriel – barring surprises, he will start again from the bench, but the Colombian has already shown that he can hurt even during the race

To be avoided:

  • Maehle – difficult to find someone not recommended in Atalanta, but if we have to choose one this can only be Joakim Maehle: he can suffer Verona’s game on the flanks
  • Musso – Verona in great shape, difficult for the extreme defender of the Goddess to keep the clean sheet
  • Perlino – easy yellow card, already 5 in the season


Next commitment: Turin (away)

Unavailable: Kingsley; Schouten; Mbaye.

Disqualified: Dominguez

Probable formation: Skorupski; Soumaoro; Medel; Theate; De Silvestri; Tabby; Svanberg; Hickey; Orsolini; Barrow; Arnautovic.

Ballotings: Hickey-Dijks 60-40%; Orsolini-Vignato 51-49%; Arnautovic-Sansone 51-49%

To be deployed:

  • Hickey – against Fiorentina he signed the second goal of his season and will try to repeat himself against Torino
  • Orsolini – not sure of a starting position, but he should still find a place: should Arnautovic not be there, he could also show up on the spot
  • Arnautovic – should be the last-minute recovery for Sinisa Mihajlovic: he wants to get back to scoring after missing the last match

To be avoided:

  • Medel – despite the great performances of the last few weeks, Gary Medel does not convince: high card risk
  • Soriano – caution also with Bobby Soriano, who will move back in the median following the disqualification of Svanberg: he will hardly be able to give you bonuses from that position
  • Skorupski – Turin looking for redemption after the two draws in a row, could pay the price


Next commitment: Inter (away)

Unavailable: Walukiewicz; Rog; Strootman.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Cragno; Caceres; Ceppitelli; Coals; Bellanova; Nandez; Marin; Deiola; Dalbert; Keita; Joao Pedro.

Ballotings: Carboni-Godin 51-49%; Deiola-Fat 55-45%

Who to deploy:

  • Joao Pedro – the only true beacon of this Cagliari in great difficulty, it can also be deployed against Inter
  • Nandez – together with Joao Pedro he is the only one able to give sparkle in the middle of the field
  • Caceres – double-edged sword, there is the danger of a yellow card, but if it is during the day …

Who to avoid:

  • Godin – he risks another bench and, even if he plays, he will face a difficult client like Edin Dzeko
  • Dalbert – the advanced position could tease (he will play winger in midfield) but the game requires you to make other choices
  • Keita – like the other two, Keita will also be an ex of the match, but risks suffering from the physicality of the Nerazzurri defensive trio


Next commitment: Naples (away)

Unavailable: nobody

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Vicar; Stojanovic; Tonelli; Screws; Parisi; Haas; Curls; Zurkowski; Bajrami; Pinamonti; Cutrone.

Ballotings: Tonelli-Romagnoli 55-45%; Zurkowski-Bandinelli 51-49%; Bajrami-Henderson 51-49%; Cutrone-Di Francesco 51-49%.

Who to deploy:

  • Bajrami – after having found the goal against Udinese, he will aim to repeat himself against Napoli: a difficult match, but he is probably the only one that can be deployed in the Empoli ranks
  • Pinamonti – 2 goals in the last three games, no need to add anything else
  • Screws – in the sights of the top clubs of Serie A, Andreazzoli’s ace in the hole

Who to avoid:

  • Tonelli – Beyond the bench risk, the commitment against the third force of our championship requires us not to bet on him
  • Zurkowski – is one of the revelations of this championship, but this time it might be better to look elsewhere
  • Cutrone – as in the case of Tonelli, not even Cutrone is sure of a starting position: make other choices


Next commitment: Salernitana (house)

Unavailable: Pulgar; Dragowski; Nastasic; Castrovilli.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Terracciano; Odriozola; Milenkovic; M. Quarta; Biraghi; Bonaventure; Torreira; Duncan; Gonzalez; Vlahovic; Saponara.

Ballotings: M. Quarta-Igor 55-45%; Duncan-Maleh 55-45%; Gonzalez-Callejon 55-45%; Saponara-Sottil 60-40%

Who to deploy:

  • Terracciano – he is making the most of Dragowski’s absence and the match against the worst attack of our league requires you to take him into consideration
  • Milenkovic – give a good grade, but also watch out for head shots: he does not score from the opening match against Roma, too much for someone like him
  • Bonaventura – he too dry from several matches (last goal which dates back to the 4th day) will try to break free against Salernitana

Who to avoid:

  • turret – difficult to find someone not recommended but, given the backward position and the unfamiliarity with the goal, we think we can find better than Lucas Torreira
  • Martinez Quarta – 5 yellow cards in 11 games, better to do without
  • Alfred Duncan – he is not the player admired at the time of Sassuolo, only 1 goal in 14 games


Next commitment: Sampdoria (home)

Unavailable: Right; Kallon; Fares; Maksimovic; Caicedo; Cassata; Rovella; Struaro

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Sirigu; Biraschi; Masiello; Criscito; Ghiglione; Touré; Badelj; Behrami; Cambiaso; Pandev; Ekuban.

Ballotings: Criscito-Vasquez 60-40%; Ghiglione-Sabelli 51-49%; Behrami-Hernani 55-45%; Ekuban-Bianchi 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Criscito – he should return to the leadership of the rossoblù defense: definitely a felt game and penalties that could be a key
  • Cambiaso – Genoese and Genoan, he will certainly want to do well against Sampdoria: he will play in midfield, an extra point in favor of one of his sides
  • Pandev – Genoa still chasing the first goal of the management Andriy Shevchenko and a lot will pass from the right of Goran Pandev

Who to avoid:

  • Touré – until now the protagonist of several disappointing performances, the derby atmosphere could suffer: yellow risk around the corner
  • Behrami – probably more reliable than Touré as regards the vote, but still he too at serious risk
  • Ekuban – thanks to the many absences, Sheva will probably still have to bet on him: numbers that speak for themselves, with 11 games and no goals


Next commitment: Cagliari (home)

Unavailable: Darmian; Frog; Correa.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Handanovic; Skriniar; de Vrij; Sticks; Dumfries; Stretcher; Brozovic; Calhanoglu; Perisic; Dzeko; L. Martinez.

Ballotings: de Vrij-Dimarco 55-45%; Dimarco-D’Ambrosio 51-49%; Dzeko-Sanchez 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Skriniar – pillar of the Nerazzurri defense with the vice of scoring: he went close in the Champions League against Real Madrid, he will try to hit the target with Cagliari
  • Stretcher – even without the poisoned tooth, Barella can be dangerous for his former team: he wants to redeem Madrid’s naivety, go for it
  • Perisic – his raids on the left wing can represent an important weapon in the Nerazzurri arsenal: to be deployed, without too many doubts

Who to avoid:

  • Vidal – does not convince Arturo Vidal, often opaque when called into question and now a distant relative of the total midfielder seen at the time of Juventus
  • Handanovic – three clean sheets in a row, will the Nerazzurri wall fall against Cagliari?
  • Alexis Sanchez – could take over while the race is in progress, but not at the peak of physical fitness


Next commitment: Venice (away)

Unavailable: Ramsey; Danilo; Church; McKennie; Kulusevski.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Szczesny; Cuadrado; Bonucci; de Ligt; Alex Sandro; Rabiot; Locatelli; Bentancur; Dybala; Morata; Bernardeschi.

Ballotings: de Ligt-Chiellini 51-49%; Alex Sandro-Pellegrini 55-45%; Morata-Kean 55-45%

Who to deploy:

  • Szczesny – he rested in the Champions League, but should return regularly to the field with Venezia: he will try to lock the Juventus goal
  • Bernardeschi – Church and Kulusevski injured, he will act on the left wing: his left-handed can hurt the defense of the lagoons
  • Morata – like Szczesny, he also did not start in the starting eleven against Malmo: he should start from 1 ‘in the league, and he often knows how to get excited in this type of matches

Who to avoid:

  • refill – once again he should start as a starter, but the Frenchman has already shown that he is anything but reliable, not only in terms of fantasy football
  • Alex Sandro – from bad to worse, far from the best times of the very first years in Juventus
  • Bentancur – lost and awkward, Allegri hopes to recover McKennie


Next commitment: Sassuolo (away)

Unavailable: nobody

Disqualified: Milinkovic-Savic

Probable formation: Strakosha; Marusic; Unripe; Luiz Felipe; Hysaj; Basic; Cataldi; Luis Alberto; Pedro; Property; F. Anderson.

Ballotings: Strakosha-Reina 51-49%; Marusic-Lazzari 55-45%; F. Anderson-Zaccagni 60-40%

Who to deploy:

  • Basic – called to the task, certainly not easy, of replacing the injured Milinkovic-Savic: it can be a good low cost call
  • Luis Alberto – hasn’t scored for more than a month, but the Magician must always be worn: aim for it
  • Property – despite some ailments, he should be regularly on the pitch against Sassuolo: it is forbidden to leave “King Ciro” out

Who to avoid:

  • Strakosha – he made the most of the opportunity granted him against Sampdoria and should find his place again on Sunday, but Sassuolo know how to be dangerous in front: to be lined up only if they lack great alternatives
  • Marusic – should be preferred to Lazzari to start from 1 ‘, but he could suffer from Raspadori’s speed
  • Hysaj – 1 goal and zero assist in 15 games, it had to be a solution, not a problem for Sarri


Next commitment: Udinese (away)

Unavailable: Leao; Pellegri; Rebic; Castilejo; Calabria; Plizzari; Giroud; Kjaer.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Maignan; Kalulu; Romagnoli; Tomori; Theo Hernandez; Kessie; Tonali; Saelemaekers; Brahim Diaz; Krunic; Ibrahimovic.

Ballotings: Kalulu-Florenzi 55-45%; Tonali-Bennacer 51-49%; Saelemaekers-Messias 51-49%; Krunic-Messias 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Maignan – he will try to redeem the two mistakes in the Champions League: Udinese’s not sparkling attack could give him a hand
  • Tomori – like Maignan, he too has something to be forgiven: Beto is not a simple customer, but the latter will have bread for his teeth
  • Krunic – he is not sure of a starting spot, but his great form (he was one of the best against Liverpool) makes it necessary to take him into consideration

Who to avoid:

  • Florenzi – this time it should not win in the ballot with Kalulu, but in any case it can be better
  • Bennacer – tight ballot with Tonali: it could also win, but it does not offer too many guarantees in terms of bonuses
  • Cage – Romagnoli favorite, but in any case better to avoid deploying him, too many uncertainties in the few times he was called into question


Next commitment: Empoli (home)

Unavailable: Manolas; Insigne; F. Ruiz; Koulibaly; Anguissa; Osimhen; Lobotka; Lozano.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Ospina; By Lorenzo; Rrahmani; Juan Jesus; Mario Rui; Zielinski; Demme; Elmas; Politano; Mertens; Ounas.

Ballotings: Ounas-Petagna 60-40%

Who to deploy:

  • By Lorenzo – is one of the ex of the competition: his head shots could be a factor
  • Zielinski – he too, like Di Lorenzo, will play against his former team: do not be fooled by the back position, he can also hurt from there (see Fabian Ruiz)
  • politan – complicated start to the season due to Covid-19, but now Politano will try to take advantage of Lozano’s injury to return to record

Who to avoid:

  • Juan Jesus – called to replace the injured Koulibaly, he should find a starting position, but he can hardly represent a weapon in a fantasy football key
  • From Mrs – danger of a card around the corner and unfamiliarity with the goal: not to be discarded a priori, but, if you have valid alternatives, make other choices
  • Mario Rui – irremovable holder, but not always precise and punctual in the coverage phase.


Next commitment: Spezia (house)

Unavailable: Spinazzola; Pilgrims; Afena-Gyan; El Shaarawy

Disqualified: Mancini; Zaniolo.

Probable formation: Rui Patricio; Kumbulla; Smalling; Ibanez; Karsdorp; Mkhitaryan; Cristante; Veretout; Vina; Shomurodov; Abraham

Ballotings: Shomurodov-Carles Perez

Who to deploy:

  • Rui Patricio – disastrous against Inter, he will try to redeem himself against a decidedly affordable Spezia
  • Karsdorp – will play as an all-out winger: it can hurt the La Spezia defense
  • Shomurodov – given the many defections in the offensive department, he should find a place from 1 ‘: with Venezia he did not disappoint, he will try to repeat himself

Who to avoid:

  • Crystalline – in front of him he will have a complicated opponent like Giulio Maggiore: make other choices
  • Plums – often disappointing, tomorrow will have an opportunity with the disqualification of Mancini, but Kumbulla does not fully convince
  • Vina – well in the Conference League, but in the league he never managed to shine, 1 assist in 12 games played, also thanks to the recent injury


Next commitment: Fiorentina (away)

Unavailable: Capezzi; Gondo; Strandberg; Russian; M. Coulibaly; Ruggeri; Zortea.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Belec; Veseli; Gyomber; Gagliolo; Kechrida; L. Coulibaly; Of Tacchio; Kastanos; Ranieri; Ribery; Simy.

Ballot: Kastanos-Schiavone 55-45%; Simy-Bonazzoli 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Ribery – complicated commitment for Salernitana, against a team in great shape like Fiorentina: we choose to focus on the former of the match, Franck Ribery
  • Ranieri – together with Ribery he is the other great ex of the challenge, an opponent not to be underestimated for Odriozola
  • Gagliolo – the best of the grenade defense in the last 5 rounds

Who to avoid:

  • Belec – it is never a wise move to focus on the Salernitana goalkeeper, but tomorrow it would be even less so: in front of him he will have Dusan Vlahovic
  • In the evening – Odriozola’s speed can suffer: look elsewhere
  • Simy – until now it seems the faded copy of the attacker who, last year, surprised everyone with goals: this could be an unsuitable game to go back to scoring


Next commitment: Genoa (away)

Unavailable: Damsgaard; Vieira; Ihattaren; Torregrossa.

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Audero; Bereszynski; Yoshida; Colley; Augello; Candreva; Ekdal; Thorsby; Verre; Gabbiadini; Caputo

Ballotings: Yoshida-Ferrari 55-45%; Verre-A. Silva70-30%; Caputo-Quagliarella 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Bereszynski – disappointing (like all Sampdoria on the other hand) on the occasion of the last outing against Lazio: tonight at the derby he will have the opportunity to make up for it
  • Candreva – impossible to keep out Candrevone: the numbers speak for him
  • Quagliarella – at the moment he is not given the owner (ballot with Caputo very tight), but the official teams could give you a hand: if he were to play, then bet on it

Who to avoid:

  • Thorsby – caution with Thorsby: sometimes decisive with his head shots, but very often subject to yellow cards
  • Ekdal – not even the Norwegian’s teammate is convincing: he can suffer with Genoa
  • Caputo – favorite over Quagliarella, but still far from the standards of Empoli and Sassuolo


Next meeting: Lazio (home)

Unavailable: Djuricic; Obiang; Romagna; Goldaniga

Disqualified: none

Probable formation: Advice; Toljan; Chiriches; Ferrari; Rogerio; Frattesi; M. Lopez; M. Henrique; Berardi; Scamacca; Raspadori.

Ballotings: Toljan-Muldur 51-49%; Chiriches-Ayhan 55-45%; Rogerio-Kyriakopoulos 55-45%; Raspadori-Boga-Defrel 40-30-30%

Who to deploy:

  • Frattesi – is the great surprise of this start of the season: he wants to continue to amaze even against Lazio
  • Berardi – impossible to keep out Mimmo Berardi: Lazio in great difficulty behind and penalties that could be a factor
  • Scamacca – dry against Spezia, he will try to score against Pepe Reina

Who to avoid:

  • Chiriches – Immobile’s speed can hurt him: you can find better
  • Rogerio – in front of him he will have one of the fittest players in Serie A: Pedro can cause him more than a few annoyances
  • Breakers – reborn against Spezia, but often disappointing so far: Lazio may not be the right team to repeat themselves


Next meeting: Rome (away)

Unavailable: Sena

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Provedel; Amian; Erlic; Nikolaou; Gyasi; Greater; Room; Kovalenko; It bears; Nzola; Manaj

Ballotings: Reca-Sticks 55-45%; Sala-Bourabia 51-49%; Manaj-Green 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Kovalenko – among the few that can be deployed in this match: Roma often in difficulty in the mid-field and the former Atalanta could do well
  • Greater – trust also in Maggiore: a complicated meeting, but it is one of the few positive notes of this Spezia
  • Mbala Calm down – 2 goals and 1 assist in the last 4 games, the only lighthouse of the offensive department in La Spezia

Who to avoid:

  • Provedel – Spice worst defense in the league: this is enough to lead you to make other choices
  • Gyasi – striker listing, but he will play outside all-out: certainly not the best in ottixa fantacalcio
  • Manaj – not sure of a starting position, but, even if he were, he would not offer you any particular guarantees


Next commitment: Bologna (home)

Unavailable: Greens; Djidji; Mandrake; Belotti; Linetty

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Milinkovic-Savic; Zima; Bremer; Good morning; Singo; Lukic; Pobega; Ansaldi; Pjaca; Brekalo; Sanabria

Ballotings: Good morning-Rodriguez 51-49%; Pobega-Baselli 51-49%; Ansaldi-Vojvoda 51-49%; Pjaca-Praet 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Ansaldi – returns to the field after the injury: on the wing it can create many problems for the rossoblù defense
  • pjaca – against Empoli it took him 34 minutes to find the goal: it could be a valid low cost solution
  • Sanabria – he hasn’t found the goal for some time (the last one dates back to the 9th matchday), but Bologna can be the right opportunity to break free

Who to avoid:

  • Milinkovic-Savic – up to now pleasant surprise of Torino, but Bologna will play the attack: watch out
  • Rodriguez – whether you play or not, the former Milan has never been a great solution to fantasy football: many shortcomings or few bonuses; in addition, he could start on the bench
  • Good morning – weak link of the rear shell


Next commitment: Milan (home)

Unavailable: Larsen; Pereyra

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Silvestri; Perez; De Maio; Nuytinck; Udogie; Molina; Arslan; Walace; Deulofeu; Success; Beto

Ballotings: De Maio-Becao 60-40%; Molina-Soppy 51-49%; Walace-Makengo 51-49%

Who to deploy:

  • Deulofeu – undoubtedly complicated commitment for the Friulians, but the Spaniard could hurt his former team
  • Beto – like Deulofeu, it is certainly a gamble, but the state of form of the Portuguese requires to take it into consideration
  • Becao – he shouldn’t leave as a starter, but last season he hurt Milan both in the first leg and in the return

Who to avoid:

  • Silvestri – Milan downsized by injuries, but, as long as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is around, it is never wise to deploy the goalkeeper that the Swede will have in front of him
  • Perez – Udinese’s defense rejected as a whole: therefore, it is better to keep Nauhen Perez out too
  • Molina – start of the season in a rocket, then the decline: this does not seem the right game to return to focus on the Argentine


Next commitment: Juventus (home)

Unavailable: Fiordino; Sigurdsson; Okereke

Disqualified: Ceccaroni

Probable formation: Romero; Mazzocchi; Caldara; Svoboda; Haps; Busio; Cow; Ampadu; Aramu; Henry; Johnsen

Ballotings: Busio-Kiyine 55-45%; Cow-Crnigoj 55-45%

Who to deploy:

  • aramu – only recommended among the ranks of the lagoons: penalty factor and, in general, set pieces, not to be underestimated
  • Mattia Caldara – difficult game, but still the lighthouse of the lagoon defense
  • Gianluca busio, among the best in this start of the season of Venezia

Who to avoid:

  • Rosemary – Juventus are not scoring machines, but Venezia’s offensive game could, in this sense, lend a hand to Allegri and his teammates
  • Henry – will hardly be able to affect the de Ligt-Bonucci couple
  • Ampadu – 9 games played, 5 yellow cards and an expulsion. I’d say that’s enough


Next commitment: Atalanta (home)

Unavailable: Frabotta; Hongla; Kalinic; Gunter; Chancellors; Dawidowicz

Disqualified: nobody

Probable formation: Montipò; Magnani; Snipers; Farmhouse; Pharaohs; Tameze; Veloso; Lazovic; Barak; Caprari; Simeone

Ballotings: Tameze-Bessa 55-45%; Veloso-Ilic 70-30%

Who to deploy:

  • Veloso – he went close to scoring last year, but his free kick was rejected by the great intervention of Romero: he will try again with Atalanta
  • Barak – has disposed of the flu symptoms and is ready to take back the Verona trocar, as well as the penalty kicks
  • Simeon – magical moment for Chilito and Atalanta often concedes something behind: you can deploy

Who to avoid:

  • Montipò – never field a goalkeeper when you have Giampiero Gasperini’s Atalanta in front of you
  • Pharaohs – great performance at the last exit against Venice, but Zappacosta could create more than a few problems in the defensive phase
  • Tameze – not easy to play against two like de Roon and Koopmeiners: you can find better
