Probable formations and Fantaconsigli of the 8th day of Serie A


NEXT COMMITMENT: Empoli (away)

UNAVAILABLE: Hateboer, Gosens, Djimsiti, Pessina


BALLOTAGES: Musso-Sportiello 51% -49%, Toloi-Lovato 60% -40%, Pasalic-Ilicic-Koopmeiners 40% -30% -30%, D. Zapata-Muriel 51% -49%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-4-2-1): Musso; Toloi, Demiral, Palomino; Zappacosta, De Roon, Freuler, Maehle; Pasalic, Malinovskyi; D. Zapata

To be deployed:

  • Luis Muriel: due to the failure to call up the national team, he took advantage of the break to try to find the best condition. Against this type of opponents he rarely fails.
  • Mario Pasalic: with Pessina’s injury he will return to play on the trocar again and put his skills in the insertion to good use.
  • Davide Zappa costa: the most fit of the few outsiders left at Gasperini’s disposal

To avoid:

  • Joakim Maehle: devastating with the national team, disappointing in the league
  • Rowing Graze: lackluster at the start of the season, it could be at risk of turnover
  • Aleksej Miranchuk: still a foreign body to the team


NEXT COMMITMENT: Udinese (away)

UNAVAILABLE : Schouten, Bonifazi


BALLOTAGES: Hickey-Dijks 60% -40%, Barrow-Orsolini 55% -45%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-4-2-1): Skorupski; Soumaoro, Medel, Theate; De Silvestri, Dominguez, Svanberg, Hickey; Soriano, Barrow; Arnautovic

To be deployed:

  • Musa Barrow: with the change of module plays closer to the goal and has more freedom of movement. Called to confirm the amazing performance against Lazio
  • Arthur Theater: the impression is that it will be difficult for him to leave the starting line-up. Already 2 goals and 1 assist in assets
  • Roberto Soriano: his bonus fast is destined to break sooner or later

To avoid:

  • Riccardo Ursu: penalized by the change of module of which he was one of the main architects due to his colorless proofs
  • Nicolas Dominguez: bonuses are utopian for him
  • Lukasz Skorupski: Udinese have not won in 4 games and rarely miss this type of match. Therefore it will hardly keep the goal clean


NEXT COMMITMENT: Sampdoria (home)

UNAVAILABLE : Ceter, Rog, Walukiewicz


BALLOTAGES: Godin-Ceppitelli 55% -45%, Dalbert-Lykogiannis 51% -49%, Keita-Pavoletti 60% -40%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-5-2): Cragno; Caceres, Godin, Carboni; Nandez, Marin, Strootman, Deiola, Dalbert; Keita Baldè, Joao Pedro

To be deployed:

  • Joao Pedro: Mazzarri’s arrival negatively influenced the team’s attacking phase and in particular its performances. However he has the shots to decide the game
  • Keita Baldè: former goal in sight?
  • Razvan Marin: one of the few lights of Mazzarri’s gray Cagliari

To be avoided:

  • Alessandro deiola: fails to rise from mediocrity
  • Dalbert / Lykogiannis: anyone of the 2 games will have to contend with Candreva. Every man for himself
  • Kevin Strootman: anonymous and not very incisive also due to his employment as a defensive playmaker, a role not exactly congenial to his characteristics


NEXT COMMITMENT: Atalanta(home)

UNAVAILABLE: Furlan, Pinamonti


BALLOTAGES: Stulac-Ricci 55% -45%, Di Francesco-Cutrone 51% -49%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-1-2): Vicar; Stojanovic, S. Romagnoli, Tonelli, Marchizza; Zurkowski, Stulac, Henderson; Bajrami; Mancuso, Di Francesco

To be deployed:

  • Courtier Bajrami:  the player of higher quality of this Empoli
  • Petar Stojanovic: After the injury of Gosens the left side of Atalanta seems vulnerable
  • Liam Henderson: often arrives in the shooting area, possible surprise

To be avoided:

  • Lorenzo Tonelli: Atalanta does not seem the ideal opponent to test his condition after the physical ailments of the previous days
  • Patrick Cutrone: has now become the third choice in the role of first striker
  • Simone Romagnoli: Zapata and Muriel could give him a headache


NEXT COMMITMENT: Venice (away)

IAVAILABLE: Castrovilli, Dragowski


BALLOTAGES: Martinez Quarta-Igor 55% -45%, Pulgar-Torreira 51% -49%, Callejon-Sottil 51-49%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-3): Terracciano; Odriozola, Milenkovic, Martinez Quarta, Biraghi; Bonaventure, Pulgar, Duncan; Callejon, Vlahovic, N. Gonzalez

To be deployed:

  • Dusan Vlahovic: it’s time to get back to scoring on open play

Peter Terracciano: when called into question it has proved to be reliable, the attack of Venice is anything but irresistible. Possible clean sheet

  • James Bonaventura: by far the best viola player

To be avoided:

  • Alvaro Odriozola: in the containment phase it could suffer from Johnsen’s tears
  • Josè Callejon: despite Italian’s trust in him and his advanced position, he struggles to become dangerous
  • Aleksandr Kokorin: continues to find space with the dropper, a mysterious object


NEXT COMMITMENT: Sassuolo (home)

UNAVAILABLE: Vanheusden, Cassata, Maksim


BALLOTAGES: Rovella-Tourè 51% -49%, Kallon-Sabelli 60% -40%, Ekuban-Caicedo 70% -30%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-4-2): Sirigu; Cambiaso, Biraschi, Bani, Criscito; Kallon, Rovella, Badelj, Fares; Right, Ekuban

To be deployed:

  • Mattia Destro: back at his disposal after missing the match in Salerno, he is ready to start again where he stopped
  • Domenico Criscito: captain, soul and penalty taker of the team
  • Nicolò Rovella: one of the few quality elements in a technically modest team, can find +1 from set piece

To avoid:

  • Davide biraschi: Genoa in defense has not yet found the balance, to be avoided
  • Milan Badelj: unrecognizable from last season
  • hernani: disappeared, it seems completely out of Ballardini’s rotations



UNAVAILABLE: Sensi, Vidal, Sanchez


BALLOTAGES: Darmian-Dumfries 55% -45%, Perisic-Di Marco 55% -45%, L. Martinez-Gagliardini 55-45%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Batons; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Dzeko, L. Martinez

To be deployed:

  • Edin Dzeko: impact in the Nerazzurri higher than the most optimistic expectations, at the moment it is impresc
  • Nicolò  Stretcher: even against Sassuolo he came close to scoring, which is always dangerous
  • Ivan Perisic: one of the most fit nerazzurri, he seems to have by now taken complete mastery of the role of full-fledged winger. And if Lautaro does not take the field, he could have a possible penalty kick

To avoid:

  • Samir Handanovic: against Sassuolo he was finally deterning positively but against the biancoceleste attack he risks paying duty
  • Hakan  Calhanoglu: 4 shortcomings in 7 days, his place is increasingly questioned
  • Stefan De Vrij: in the last few days he appeared to be the stand-in for the defensive bulwark of past seasons. In addition, he will certainly not find a friendly welcome at the Olimpico



UNAVAILABLE: Morata, Rabiot


BALLOTAGES: Alex Sandro-Danilo 51% -49%, Chiellini-De Ligt 55% -45%, Bentancur-McKennie-Ramsey 40% -30% -30%, Kean-Kulusevski 60% -40%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-4-2): Szczesny; De Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, Bentancur, Locatelli, Bernardeschi; Kean, Church

To be deployed:

  • Leonardo  Bonucci: in big matches he usually gets excited. In the absence of Dybala he is also the penalty taker of the team
  • Federico Church: with his shots he can solve the game at any moment
  • Manual Locatelli: already 2 decisive goals, one of the few fixed points of the Juventus midfield

To be avoided:

  • Rodrigo Bentancur: at high risk of a card and returning from a transoceanic trip
  • Mattia The Sciglio: the weak link in the Juventus rearguard
  • Aaron Ramsey: unrecognizable compared to the player admired at the time of Arsenal





BALLOTAGES: Patric-Radu 55% -45%, Marusic-Lazzari 51% -49%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-3): Reina; Marusic, Luiz Felipe, Patric, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Pedro

To be deployed:

  • Cyrus Property: it may not be 100% after the injury remedied against Lokomotiv Moscow but his presence is essential for the biancoceleste offensive maneuver. And the Nerazzurri defense recently did not seem imperative
  • Felipe  Anderson: with its accelerations it can break the game
  • Sergej Milinkovic-Savic: eager to redeem the bad test against Bologna

To be avoided:

  • Patric: in addition to not being exactly a lightning bolt of war will have to contend with a certain Dzeko
  • Vedat Muriqi: he exploited badly, due not only to his own faults, the chance as a starter with Bologna, inadequate
  • pepper Queen: this does not seem like an opportunity for the first clean sheet of the season. The botched biancoceleste defense, moreover without Acerbi, could go into enormous difficulty against Inter’s attack


NEXT COMMITMENT: Verona (home)

UNAVAILABLE: Bakayoko, Florenzi, T. Hernandez, Maignan, Plizzari, Messias


BALLOTAGES: Romagnoli-Kjaer 55% -45%, Ballo Tourè-Calabria 51% -49%, Kessiè-Bennacer 55% -45%, Giroud-R. Leao 51% -49%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Tomori, Romagnoli, Ballo Tourè; Tonali, Kessiè; Saelemaekers, Maldini, Rebic; Giroud

To be deployed:

  • Franck Kessiè: against Atalanta he gave comforting signs of recovery, ready to break his bonus fast
  • Ante Rebic: moves back to the trocar due to the return of Giroud and the absence of Brahim Diaz. Not very decisive in the goal area, but performances always above the sufficiency at the beginning of the season
  • Sandro Tonali: has become the untouchable of the Rossoneri midfield

To be avoided:

  • Fodè Ballo-Tourè: in the few seasonal appearances he did not particularly impress to the point that Pioli could relegate him to the bench even in the absence of Theo Hernandez
  • Ciprian Tatarusanu: since Tudor started Verona has become particularly prolific. He may also suffer from the long period of being away from the playing field
  • Olivier Giroud: may not be in top condition after the many problems of the last period



UNAVAILABLE: Ounas, Malcuit, Petagna, Manolas


BALLOTAGES: Meret-Ospina 70% -30%, Politano-Lozano 70% -30%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-2-3-1): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Anguissa, F. Ruiz; Politano, Zielinski, Insigne; Osimhen

To be deployed:

  • Victor Osimhen: a nightmare for all the defenses of the Italian league
  • Lorenzo Insigne: looking for his first goal from seasoned action
  • kalidou Koulibaly: dominant

To be avoided:

  • Mario Rui: as always he is at risk of a yellow card, he will also have to face Singo
  • faouzi Ghoulam: back available after yet another injury but should not find space
  • Diego From Mrs: ownership was his only fantasy football peculiarity. Right now he doesn’t even own that


NEXT COMMITMENT: Juventus (away)

UNAVAILABLE: Spinazzola, Smalling


LIKELY TRAINING (4-2-3-1): Rui Patricio; Karsdorp, Mancini, Ibanez, Calafiori; Cristante, Veretout; Zaniolo, Pellegrini, Mkhitaryan; Shomurodov

To be deployed:

  • Lorenzo Pellegrini: he is the most important player of Roma, also scoring in the national team
  • Jordan Veretout: the commitment is difficult but can find a bonus when standing still
  • Niccolò Zaniolo: he is the man of great matches, he will try to find his first bonus of the season

To avoid:

  • Riccardo Calafiori: Cuadrado and Chiesa will act in its parts
  • Rui Patricio:  Allianz Stadium has often been a taboo ground for Roma
  • Eidur Shomurodov: Juventus has recently found solidity and risks being caught in the grip of Bonucci and Chiellini


NEXT COMMITMENT: Spezia (away)

UNAVAILABLE: Ruggeri, Bonazzoli, Ribery, Bogdan, Capezzi, L. Coulibaly, Veseli


BALLOTAGES: Gyomber-Zortea 55% -45%, Ranieri-Jaroszynski 51% -49%, Obi-Kechrida 55% -45%, Kastanos-Gondo 55% -45%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-1-2): Belec; Gyomber, Strandberg, Gagliolo, Ranieri; M. Coulibaly, Di Tacchio, Obi; Kastanos; Simy, Djuric

To be deployed:

  • Mamadou Coulibaly: although he is technically rather large and has never shown great bomber skills, he is already at 2 goals and is always in the thick of the game
  • Milan Djuric: fighting center forward, he decided the match against Genoa. Indispensable for the Castori game system
  •  Grigoris Castanos: with the absence of Ribery it’s up to him to guarantee quality to the grenade maneuver. Can find a new +1 while standing

To avoid:

  • Nwankwo Simy: the opponent is affordable but continues to look like a fish out of water in the offensive schemes of Beavers
  • Norbert Gyomber: slightly progressing in the last few matches but as a full-back he could suffer from the unpredictability of the La Spezia outsiders
  • Francesco By Tacchio: slow and predictable, he struggles to adapt to the category


NEXT COMMITMENT: Cagliari (away)

UNAVAILABLE: Ihattaren, Damsgaard, Vieira


BALLOTAGE: Ekdal-A. Silva 55% -45%, Verre-Depaoli 60% -40%, Gabbiadini-Caputo 51% -49%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-4-2): Audero; Bereszynski, Yoshida, Colley, Augello; Candreva, Thorsby, Ekdal, Verre; Gabbiadini, Quagliarella

To be deployed:

  • Antonio Candreva: in absolute state of grace
  • Fabio Quagliarella: he unlocked on a penalty against Udinese, he could benefit from the return of Gabbiadini
  • Manolo Gabbiadini: he will hardly remain in the field for 90 minutes but can give greater unpredictability to the Dorian attack and sting with his left

To avoid:

  • Francesco Caputo: the couple with Quagliarella struggles to mesh and with the return of Gabbiadini could start from the bench
  • Emil Audero: Cagliari are not a scoring machine but the current Sampdoria does not have a good balance in the defensive phase
  • Morten Thorsby: transformed into negative with respect to the Ranieri management



UNAVAILABLE: Obiang, Romagna


BALLOTAGES: Muldur-Toljan 51% -49%, Raspadori-Scamacca 55% -45%, Djuricic-Defrel-Traore 40% -30% -30%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-2-3-1): Advice; Muldur, Chiriches, Ferrari, Rogerio; Frattesi, M. Lopez; Berardi, Djuricic, Boga; Raspadori

To be deployed:

  • Domenico Berardi: the only certainty in the realization phase of a Sassuolo that struggles to realize the amount of play produced
  • Jeremie Boce: after a troubled season he is back on excellent levels. All he misses is the goal
  • Filip Djuricic: against Inter only a great save by Bastoni denied him the +3

To avoid:

  • Maxim Lopez: few chances of bonuses and high card risk
  • Jeremy Toljan: back available but should start on the bench to Muldur’s advantage
  • James Breakers: right now he is in a crisis of confidence


NEXT COMMITMENT: Salerno (home)

UNAVAILABLE: Agudelo, Colley, Erlic, Reca, Sena, Sala, Bourabia, Amian


BALLOTAGES: Provedel-Zoet 55% -45%, Sher-Kovalenko 55% -45%, Manaj-Nzola 55% -45%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-2-3-1): Provedel; Ferrer, Nikolaou, Hristov, Bertola; Sher, Major; Antiste, Verde, Gyasi; Manaj

To Deploy:

  • Ivan Provedel: could finally return to the owner at the expense of the disappointing Zoet. For those who have him in the squad it is one of the rare occasions in which he is deployable, it is difficult for him to suffer more than 1 goal
  • Giulio Greater: against Verona his absence weighed heavily both on the football and on the character level
  • Emmanuel Gyasi:  can break through to a Gyomber in distress

To be avoided:

  • Jeroen Sweet: too many mistakes, at high risk from the bench
  • M’Bala Calm down: distant relative of the player admired in the first part of last season
  • Friday Hristov: unripe and inadequate


NEXT COMMITMENT: Naples (away)

UNAVAILABLE: Pjaca, Praet, Verdi


BALLOTAGES: Djidji-Zima 55% -45%, Ola Aina-Ansaldi 55% -45%, Linetty-Pobega 55% -45%, Sanabria-Belotti 60% -40%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-4-2-1): V. Milinkovic-Savic; Djidji, Bremer, R. Rodriguez; Singo, Lukic, Mandragora, Ola Aina; Linetty, Brekalo; Sanabria

To be deployed:

  • Ola Aina/ Christian Ansaldi: if there is a sector in which Napoli is vulnerable it is that of the defensive wingers. Both are in good shape, anyone who plays can do well
  • Joseph Brekalo: it is the only one that can give unpredictability to the grenade attack
  • Wilfried Singo: is in shape and will face the not irresistible Mario Rui

To be avoided:

  • Vanja Milinkovic-Savic: Torino defensively is holding up well and he too is performing above the expectations of the beginning of the season but the opponent is the worst possible
  • Koffi Djidji: in his last 2 appearances he provoked 2 penalties causing his team to lose 4 points. To be avoided absolutely
  • Antonio Sanabria: Juric’s game traditionally makes little use of the first tips. It will also face the Koulibaly wall


NEXT COMMITMENT: Bologna (home)

UNAVAILABLE: Nestorovski, Success, Perez


BALLOTAGES: Udogie-Molina 60% -40%, Makengo-Arslan 55% -45%, Beto-Pussetto 70% -30%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-5-2): Silvestri; R. Becao, Nuytinck, Samir; Stryger Larsen, Pereyra, Walace, Makengo, Udogie; Beto, Deulofeu

To be deployed

  • Beto: first striker physically strong but also technically skilled and fairly agile. With the passing of the games he is climbing the hierarchy of Gotti
  • Gerard Deulofeu: a large part of Udinese’s offensive fortunes depend on his flashes
  • Marco Silvestri: Udinese must return to victory and against this type of opponents rarely cue. Possible clean sheet on the way
  • To be avoided:
  • Nahuel Molina: fresh from the South American trip, he may not take the field
  • Ignacio Pusset: cannot find continuity
  • Wallace: two penalties caused in the last 2 games. Wretch


NEXT COMMITMENT: Fiorentina (home)

IAVAILABLE:  Lezzerini


BALLOTAGES: Romero-Maenpaa 51% -49%, Haps-Molinaro 60% -40%, Crnigoj-Kyine 55% -45%, Busio-Ampadu 51% -49%, Okereke-Aramu 51% -49%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-3): Maenpaa; Mazzocchi, Caldara, Ceccaroni, Haps; Crnigoj, Vacca, Busio; Okereke, Henry, Johnsen

To be deployed:

  • Mattia aramu: even if he were to start from the bench he is deployable
  • Dennis Johnsen: fast and unpredictable, all he misses is the goal
  • Gianluca busio: with Cagliari, even if in a somewhat lucky way, he found his +3 of the season. It is difficult to repeat itself but in terms of votes it remains a guarantee

To be avoided:

  • ridgecian Haps: after having alternated Schnegg and Molinaro Zanetti without too many fortunes, he should give a chance to the one who originally should have been the holder of the role. In any case to be avoided
  • Sergio Rosemary: does not play continuously from the 12-13 season. He might have some rust
  • Thomas Henry: seems to have run aground after a promising start

Greece Verona




BALLOTAGES: Casale-Magnani-Ceccherini 40% -30% -30%, Faraoni-Sutalo 55% -45%, Tameze-Bessa 55% -45%, Caprari-Kalinici 60% -40%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-4-2-1): Montipò; Dawidowicz, Gunter, Magnani; Pharaohs, Tameze, Veloso, Lazovic; Barak, Caprari; Simeone

To be deployed:

  • Marco Pharaohs: not at the top but could benefit from Theo Hernandez’s absence
  • Antonin Barak: a guarantee in terms of performance
  • Gianluca Caprari: completely regenerated by Tudor, he is finding a continuity that he had always lacked in recent years

To be avoided

  • Lorenzo Montipò: the clean sheet is a utopia
  • Miguel Veloso: after more than 1 month of absence it could be far from the best condition
  • Koray Gunter: in the space of 90 minutes it is often subject to drops in concentration
