Probable formations and Fantaconsigli of the 9th day of Serie A


NEXT COMMITMENT: Udinese (home)

UNAVAILABLE: Hateboer, Gosens, Djimsiti, Pessina, Demiral, Toloi


BALLOTAGES: Pasalic-Miranchuk 55% -45%, Malinovskyi-Ilicic 55% -45%, D. Zapata-Muriel 60% -40%

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

To be deployed:

  • Tobacco Shoe: owner or reserve makes no difference. Right now he is Atalanta’s hottest striker
  • Mario Pasalic: 2 assists against Empoli, in goal against Manchester United. As an attacking midfielder he can rely on his ability to place him in the insertions
  • Teun Koopmeiners: he inserted himself with personality into Gasperini’s schemes. Possible standing assist

To avoid:

  • Maarten De Roon: he should be back in defense again to make up for the numerous absences. Deulofeu should also act on his side, not exactly a comfortable customer
  • Matteo Lovato: he needs time to get involved in the Nerazzurri’s defensive mechanisms
  • Aleksej Miranchuk: soft and flimsy



UNAVAILABLE : Kinglsey, Bonifazi


BALLOTAGES: Medel-Dominguez 51% -49%

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

To be deployed:

  • Musa Barrow: her feet are hot right now
  • Lorenzo From Silvestri: constant and reliable, the not irresistible Ballo-Tourè may well appear
  • Roberto Soriano: the bonus still does not arrive but is clearly growing in condition

To avoid:

  • Riccardo Ursu: disappeared from radar after a series of colorless performances
  • Luis Binks: he could be deployed from the first minute due to Dominguez’s warning. Too inexperienced to face the Rossoneri forwards
  • Lukasz Skorupski: at least 2 goals conceded are to be taken into account


NEXT COMMITMENT: Fiorentina (away)

UNAVAILABLE : Ceter, Rog, Walukiewicz, Dalbert


BALLOTAGES: Ceppitelli-Carboni 60% -40%, Keita-Pavoletti 60% -40%

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

To be deployed:

  • Joao Pedro: can find the bonus at any time
  • Keita Baldè: the purple power plants do not stand out for speed, he has the skills to hit them on the counterattack
  • Nahitan Nandez: player with an insured return

To be avoided:

  • Alessio Cragno: Fiorentina in the offensive phase is not shining but absolutely needs a victory. At least 2 goals conceded to be taken into account
  • Luca Ceppitelli: not at best of condition
  • Kevin Strootman: distant relative of the midfielder admired at the time of Roma


NEXT COMMITMENT: Salerno(away)

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-1-2): Vicar; Stojanovic, Viti, Tonelli, Marchizza; Haas, Ricci, Stulac; Bajrami; Pinamonti, Di Francesco

To be deployed:

  • Courtier Bajrami:  this is one of those games in which he is called to make a difference
  • Federico Di Francesco: it is in a positive moment
  • Leo Stulac: he could be deployed as a mezzala, a role in which he could make use of his ballistic skills

To be avoided:

  • Lorenzo Tonelli: his physical condition is unknown
  • Leonardo Mancuso: still stopped at Juventus’ goal
  • Riccardo Branding: too distracted in the defensive phase


NEXT COMMITMENT: Cagliari (home)

IAVAILABLE: Kokorin, Dragowski


BALLOTAGES: Igor-Martinez Quarta 55% -45%, Amrabat-Pulgar-Torreira 40% -30-30 %%, Callejon-Saponara 51-49%

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

To be deployed:

  • Dusan Vlahovic: he hasn’t scored on action for 2 months and his relationship with fans is at an all-time low. Called to a test of pride
  • Nicolas Gonzalez: with his flashes he can turn on a dead team
  • James Bonaventura: even on gray days the good Jack does not betray

To be avoided:

  • Soufyan Amazing: the shadow of the player admired in Verona
  • Josè Callejon: despite playing in the trident he never manages to become dangerous
  • Christian biraghi: could go into trouble against Nandez


NEXT COMMITMENT: Turin (Transfer)

UNAVAILABLE: Vanheusden, Cassata, Maksimovic, Bani, Hernani


BALLOTAGES: Biraschi-Sabelli 55% -45%, Pandev-Ekuban 55-45%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-5-2): Sirigu; Biraschi, Vasquez, Criscito; Cambiaso, Toure, Badelj, Rovella, Fares; Right, Pandev

To be deployed:

  • Mattia Destro: the best Italian scorer after Immobile
  • Domenico Criscito: captain, soul and penalty taker of the team
  • Nicolò Rovella: grows from game to game

To avoid:

  • Davide biraschi: right now it’s unpresentable
  • Savior Sirigu: ex with a great desire for revenge. He is playing very well but is not helped in the least by his teammates
  • Caleb Ekuban: good will is not discussed, on the technical means it is better to postpone


NEXT COMMITMENT: Juventus (Home)



BALLOTAGES: Darmian-Dumfries 55% -45%, Perisic-Di Marco 55% -45%, Vidal-Calhanoglu-Gagliardini 40-30% -30%

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

To be deployed:

  • Edin Dzeko: he’s not making Lukaku regret
  • Arthur Vidal: against Juventus he scored his first and only goal of last troubled season. With high spirits after the great test against the Sheriff
  • Stefan De Vrij:  so far he has offered a performance below his standards but could have regained confidence after scoring in the Cup. If Inter were to make a result, they could get an excellent vote

To avoid:

  • Samir Handanovic: Juventus in the offensive phase are not shining but are struggling to give security to the defensive department
  • Joaquin  Correa: the brace against Verona at the moment was an isolated flash
  • Alessandro Sticks: moment of form that is anything but memorable



UNAVAILABLE: Dybala, Rabiot


BALLOTAGES: Alex Sandro-De Sciglio 51% -49%, Chiellini-De Ligt 55% -45%, Bernardeschi-McKennie 55% -45% Kean-Morata 55% -45%

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

To be deployed:

  • Giorgio Chiellini: in these games he usually gets excited
  • Federico Church: the feeling is that the role of second striker limits him but he has the shots to resolve the game
  • Juan Cuadrado: he has often hurt Inter

To be avoided:

  • Rodrigo Bentancur: at high risk tag
  • Moise Kean: risks succumbing to the physicality of the opposing defenders
  • Federico Bernardeschi: he is back to being a useful player to the cause but the bonuses remain a mirage


NEXT COMMITMENT: Verona (away)


DISQUALIFIED: Acerbi, Luiz Felipe

BALLOTAGES: Patric-Radu 55% -45%, Basic-Luis Alberto 55% -45%, Pedro-Zaccagni 55% -45%

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

To be deployed:

  • Cyrus Property: there is no need for explanations, Ciro goes against any opponent
  • Felipe  Anderson: when it comes on it is devastating
  • Mattia Weather in Zaccagni: first as an opponent in Verona, to be placed even if he were to start from the bench

To be avoided:

  • Stefan Radu: the double disqualification of Acerbi and Luiz Felipe will give him a starting shirt but its use is not recommended
  • Lucas Leiva: only useful for voting
  • pepper Queen: Verona scores a lot and Lazio struggles a lot on a defensive level. He will also show up at the Bentegodi with an improvised central couple


NEXT COMMITMENT: Bologna (away)

UNAVAILABLE: B. Diaz, Florenzi, T. Hernandez, Maignan, Plizzari, Messias


BALLOTAGES: Kjaer-Romagnoli 55% -45%, Ballo Tourè-Kalulu 51% -49%, Kessiè-Bennacer 55% -45%, Krunic-Maldini 51% -49%, Giroud-Ibrahimovic 60% -40%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Tomori, Kjaer, Ballo Tourè; Tonali, Kessiè; Saelemaekers, Krunic, R. Leao, Giroud

To be deployed:

  • Franck Kessiè: after having missed the match against Porto due to disqualification, he is ready to return to the field. Growing in condition and confidence
  • Rafael Lion: among the players in the Rossoneri offensive department he is the one who is better off. Never so constant as at this start of the season
  • Davide Calabria: right or left is now a certainty

To be avoided:

  • Fodè Ballo-Tourè: his level is too far from that of Theo Hernandez
  • Ciprian Tatarusanu: against Verona and Porto he made no obvious mistakes but he always appears insecure
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic: clearly delayed in condition



UNAVAILABLE: Ounas, Malcuit


BALLOTAGES: Ospina-Meret 70% -30%, Politano-Lozano 55% -45%, Zielinski-Elmas 60% -40%

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

To be deployed:

  • Victor Osimhen: devastating
  • Lorenzo Insigne: floppy errors are clouding its level performance. In search of redemption
  • kalidou Koulibaly: at the moment he is the best defender of the Italian league

To be avoided:

  • Mario Rui: the weak point of the Neapolitan rearguard
  • Juan Ospina: he is doing very well but on this occasion he will hardly be able to keep the clean sheet
  • Kostas  Manolas: now reduced to the reserve role of Rrahmani


NEXT COMMITMENT: Naples (home)

UNAVAILABLE: Spinazzola, Smalling


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


To be deployed:

  • Lorenzo Pellegrini: he did not shine against Juventus but remains the most deployable of his team
  • Tammy Abraham: the duel with Koulibaly promises sparks
  • Niccolò Zaniolo: he is a man for great matches, he has already scored at Napoli. He who knows that it can not be repeated

To avoid:

  • Roger Ibanez: back from the fool with Bodoe Glimt, in the big matches he often fenced off
  • Rui Patricio:  will have against the best striker in the league
  • Gianluca Mancini: Osimhen can put him in serious trouble, very likely a yellow card


NEXT COMMITMENT: Empoli (home)

UNAVAILABLE: M. Coulibaly, Ruggeri, Bogdan, L. Coulibaly, Capezzi, Veseli, Gyomber


BALLOTAGES: Jaroszynski-Bonazzoli 55% -45%, Ribery-Gondo 51% -49%, Simy-Djuric 55% -45%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-5-2): Belec; Strandberg, Gagliolo, Jaroszynski; Kechrida, Kastanos, Di Tacchio, Obi, Ranieri; Simy, Ribery

To be deployed:

  • Nwankwo Simy: he has finally unlocked against Spezia, he could benefit from the change of coach
  • Franck Ribery: he will not have 90 minutes in his legs but in a race like this he is called to make a difference
  •  Grigoris Castanos: is proving to be worth the maximum category, possible +1 from a set piece

To avoid:

  • Cedric Gondo: he is not a bomber and with Castori’s exemption he could lose positions in the hierarchy of the grenade attack
  • Riccardo Gagliolo: he could play central in the 3-man defense, a position not exactly congenial to his characteristics
  • Francesco By Tacchio: unsuitable for Serie A



UNAVAILABLE: Ihattaren, Damsgaard, Vieira


BALLOTAGES: Caputo-Verre 60% -40%, Askildsen-Ekdal 55% -44%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-1-2): Audero; Bereszynski, Yoshida, Colley, Augello; Candreva, Askildsen, A. Silva; Gabbiadini; Caputo, Quagliarella

To be deployed:

  • Antonio Candreva: against Cagliari he remedied his first seasonal failure mainly due to the error in the first goal of the Sardinians but he also hit a post. To be deployed
  • Francesco Caputo: positive his entry from the bench against Cagliari, with Spezia it could be the right opportunity to return to scoring, even if he were to enter again during the match in progress
  • Fabio Quagliarella: Sampdoria must go back to winning and who but the captain can drag them?

To avoid:

  • Maya Yoshida: has proven to suffer from quick attacks
  • Emil Audero: Sampdoria recently travels at an average of 3 goals conceded per game. In addition, in this period he struggled to transmit security to the defensive department
  • Adrien Silva: he is not a fantasy football player


NEXT COMMITMENT: Venice (home)

UNAVAILABLE: Boga, Obiang, Romagna


BALLOTAGES: Toljan-Muldur 55% -45%

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

To be deployed:

  • Domenico Berardi: not brilliant against Genoa but he is ready to put the team on his shoulders. His penalty shooter status is another reason to field him
  • Gianluca Scamacca: he made the best of his first time as a starter, he is ready to repeat himself
  • James Raspadori: behind a real first striker is more at ease

To avoid:

  • Rogerio: bad against Genoa
  • Filip djuricic: it is not strictly recommended since the commitment is affordable, but it is going through a moment of slight fogging
  • Gregoire Defrel: has again lost positions in the hierarchy of Dionysus


NEXT COMMITMENT: Sampdoria (away)

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


BALLOTAGES: Antiste-Strelec 55% -45%, Verde-Salcedo 55% -45%, Manaj-Nzola 60% -40%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-2-3-1): Provedel; Ferrer, Nikolaou, Hristov, S. Bastoni; Kovalenko, Major; Antiste, Verde, Gyasi; Manaj

To Deploy:

  • Viktor Kovalenko: against Salernitana he has finally shown off his qualities. Called for confirmation
  • Giulio Greater: with him on the pitch, Spezia takes on a whole different depth
  • Emmanuel Gyasi:  after playing as a midfielder and left-back, he finally returns to his natural role as an offensive winger. It is in good shape
  • To be avoided:
  • Ivan Provedel: against Salernitana he is finally back in the starting position and has played a good performance. But against the offensive quality of the Sampdoria at least 2 goals on the back are to be taken into account
  • King Manaj: so far it has made very poor use of the opportunities it had available
  • Friday Hristov: we risk being monotonous. Unripe and unsuitable for the category



UNAVAILABLE: Pjaca, Mandragora, Verdi


BALLOTAGES:, Ola Aina-Ansaldi 55% -45%, Pobega-Praet 60% -40%, Belotti-Sanabria 51% -40%

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

To be deployed:

  • Nicolas Bremer: after the excellent performance in the derby he brought home a 6,5 even from the prohibitive away match in Naples. And against a team that suffers a lot from inactive balls he could find the winning squash
  • Andrea Belotti: it will hardly remain in the field all 90 minutes but considering the perforability of the opposing defense it can return to the much desired +3
  • Wilfried Singo: it is not in top condition but it can still leave its mark

To be avoided:

  • Karol Linetty: despite Juric’s trust and advanced position he fails to affect
  • Koffi Djidji: the weak link of the grenade defense
  • Simone Zaza: closed by Belotti and Sanabria


NEXT COMMITMENT: Atalanta (away)

UNAVAILABLE: Nestorovski, Success, Perez


BALLOTAGES: Arslan-Samardzic 55% -45%, Pussetto-Deulofeu 60% -40%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-5-2): Silvestri; R. Becao, Nuytinck, Samir; Molina, Arslan, Walace, Makengo, Stryger Larsen; Beto, Pussetto

To be deployed

  • Beto: if two clues prove that Udinese seems to have finally found that first level striker he had been looking for for years
  • Bram Nuytinck: even in a tough race like the one in Bergamo he could take home the usual modifier vote
  • Ignacio Pusset: Atalanta will have an improvised defense, they can take advantage of it. And he could take a possible penalty
  • To be avoided:
  • Marco Silvestri: against Bologna he was one of the best in the field but against the Nerazzurri attack the music promises to be very different
  • Rodrigo Becao: of the defensive trio is the one that could suffer the most
  • Wallace: at high risk of malus


NEXT COMMITMENT: Sassuolo (away)

IAVAILABLE:  Lezzerini, Fiordilino, Johnsen, Modolo, Vacca


BALLOTAGES: Ebuehi-Mazzocchi 51% -49%, Haps-Molinaro 51% -49%, Crnigoj-Kyine 55% -45%

LIKELY TRAINING (4-3-3): Romero; Ebuehi, Caldara, Ceccaroni, Haps; Crnigoj, Ampadu, Busio; Aramu, Henry, Okereke

To be deployed:

  • Mattia aramu: he is the most classy man in Venice
  • David Okereke: technically he is rough but with his speed he can undermine the slow central couple of Sassuolo
  • Gianluca busio: it is the lighthouse from which the offensive actions of the team start

To be avoided:

  • ridgecian Haps: against Fiorentina he proved us wrong by playing an excellent match but Berardi is an opponent of much higher caliber than the current Callejon
  • Mattia Caldara: he can find a starting shirt but risks paying duty against the Sassuolo forwards
  • Domen Crnigoj: alternates good plays with avoidable naivety



UNAVAILABLE: Frabotta, Dawido


BALLOTAGES: Ceccherini-Sutalo 55% -45%, Ilic-Tameze 60% -40%, Veloso-Bessa 55% -45%, Kalinic-Simeone 51% -49%

LIKELY TRAINING (3-4-2-1): Montipò; Ceccherini, Gunter, Casalr; Pharaohs, Ilic, Veloso, Lazovic; Barak, Caprari; Kalinic

To be deployed:

  • Marco Pharaohs: Lazio’s left wing is not irresistible, they can get the better of Hysaj
  • Antonin Barak: has officially become the penalty taker of the team, as if there were not enough reasons to field him
  • Gianluca Caprari: Lazio concedes a lot in the defensive phase and he is in a state of grace at the moment

To be avoided

  • Lorenzo Montipò: even without particular faults, he suffers too many goals
  • Miguel Veloso: against Milan he played an excellent match even going to the bonus but without the penalties his fantasy football appeal drops a lot
  • Koray Gunter: symbol of a decidedly shaky defense
