After the break and the winter transfer market, Serie A is back on the field: in Milan and Ibra Rebic, not called. Tomori, on the other hand, will be there, but he won’t be the owner. Inter in a typical formation with Lautaro teaming up with Dzeko. Allegri immediately throws both Vlahovic and Zakaria into the fray. Finally, in Naples Osimhen took the lead on Mertens
LIKELY TRAINING DAY 24 – VIDEO. FANTASHOW TIPS
A long parenthesis which nevertheless had the winter market session as an interesting “accompaniment”. Between hits, adjustments and departures, these are the squads that will arrive at the end of the season. Even the Fantasy Coaches of the Week took to the Repair Auction hoping they had really strengthened their team. Between international commitments and last-minute returns, there are still a few doubts to be resolved.
We are then ready to question the Sky Sport reporting team. Our dream team is ready: super hearing activated (so as not to miss even a draft) and phone in hand with the “probable” chat open. Interesting challenges and new protagonists to test. Here is the menu of the day: now, however, enough chatter, let’s move on to the news that arrives fresh from the various retirements of Serie A
ROME-GENOA, Saturday at 3 p.m.
Rome, Pellegrini absent
Semi-automatic offside at Club Coupe du Monde
Uruguay’s flight to Rome and passenger Matias Vina will arrive in the capital a few hours before Saturday’s match. That’s why Mourinho is expected to give up the left-winger ahead of the game against Genoa. Lorenzo Pellegrini is back but he’s not 100% yet and won’t be part of the squad. Instead of him much preferred Cristante. In front, however, we are on the right side with the Abraham-Zaniolo Cup
Genoa, problems on the tracks?
Blessin finds himself without the suspended Cambiaso. Criscito is still in the pits while Rovella struggles with a muscle issue. Destro had been spared in a friendly at the start of the week: the rossoblù striker will however be regular on Saturday. Possible opportunity from the start for Piccoli but also look at Gudmundsson’s candidacy. On the left, the old Calafiori is flowing. In the median of many possible names among which there are also those of Amiri
INTER-MILAN, Saturday at 6 p.m.
Inter, Lautaro on pole
Inter-Milan, the results of the Scudetto derby
The Nerazzurri in a typical formation facing their Rossoneri cousins. Lautaro and Sanchez have recently returned but have given the right physical guarantees. For the moment everything suggests that the initial couple is that formed by Dzeko and Lautaro. A doubt on the right? Not yet: Dumfries is in pole position. Behind the usual trio formed by Skriniar, de Vrji and Bastoni
Milan, Ibra and Rebic out. Kessie attacking midfielder?
The news came directly from Stefano Pioli: Ibra and Rebic are not making it and won’t be called up for the derby. Tomori, meanwhile, has recovered and will be available but not the owner. Pioli also tried Kessié at the trocar, a role he already filled in the last match before the break. If that were to happen to him, the sacrificed would be Brahim Diaz. In front, it will be rather Giroud.
FIORENTINA-LAZIO, Saturday at 8:45 p.m.
Fiorentina, Cabral immediately among the teams
There is a lot of curiosity to see Fiorentina after Vlahovic. The market was also lively at the entrance and now the Italian must prepare the anti-Lazio chessboard. Italian at the press conference spoke Piatek: the Pole was not well, he only did two training sessions and therefore a use of Cabral from 1 “is not excluded. Nico News Comforting arrives Gonzalez, who returned from the call with Argentina with calf pain: “Nico is fine, he’s back a little bruised, but he’s nothing special,” explained the viola coach. Behind it is Venuti as Odriozola is disqualified.
Lazio, double option in each department
The good news for Sarri is about Pedro’s recovery. The striker has seen himself on the pitch and he can be considered as 100% qualified and drafted. In recent sessions try Lazzari on the right and Hysaj on the left with Radu in the middle. The Romanian is preferred to Patric while in the wing the alternative to Lazzari is Marusic. “Pure” vote rather in the median since there is always the head to head between Luis Alberto and Basic to be decided. In front of Pedro preferred to Felipe Anderson to complete the trident with Immobile and Zaccagni.
ATALANTA-CAGLIARI, Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
Atalanta, Boga must hunt
Duvan Zapata continued the differentiated training program while Miranchuk only performed therapies. So in front there will be Muriel but there is curiosity around the possible initial choice of Boga. The former Sassuolo is a candidate but for the moment Pasalic is on pole for a starting place on the trocar. In defense it is Djimsiti who seems sacrificed for the bench.
Cagliari, Gaston Pereiro will be the deputy Joao Pedro
The spotlight was mainly focused on the attack of Mazzarri’s team. In fact, Bergamo will miss Joao Pedro due to disqualification. And this is clearly not a recent absence. In defense, place in the former service Lovato with Ceppitelli and Goldaniga to complete the order book. Nandez is to be checked and therefore Deiola and Baselli are candidates. In attack very favored Gaston Pereiro to support Pavoletti but the latter is not at his best and then another hypothesis is a 3-5-1-1 with a progression either from Marin or from Deiola
BOLOGNA-EMPOLI, Sunday at 3 p.m.
Bologna, duel in the median
Mihajlovic is without Hickey, stopped for a lag by the sports judge. On the left there would be Dijks but remember that the Dutchman, like Skov Olsen who greeted Italy, was indicated by the coach as out of the project and therefore leaving. There aren’t many alternatives on the left, except for diverting a defender out of role. In the open middle ‘place’ next to Svanberg with Viola who is a candidate while in front Barrow starts from the bench after his return from the Africa Cup of Nations
Empoli, Andreazzoli evaluates the latest arrivals
Cacace, Benassi and Glass. Names from January’s transfer market could find a place in Sunday’s game against Bologna. Maybe not all together but in the median there is Ricci, who left on loan in Turin, to be replaced. So Benassi can be useful. Verre, on the other hand, must try to climb the hierarchy on the trocar which sees Henderson and Bajrami still on pole while Cacace and Parisi start roughly equal in defense.
SAMPDORIA-SASSUOLO, Sunday at 3 p.m.
Sampdoria, Ekdal and Quagliarella unavailable
The name in attack is sure: in front, to lead Giampaolo’s troops, there will be Cicco Caputo since Quagliarella is not in his best shape. Obviously space also for Gabbiadini and Candreva with Sensi in the middle. The former Inter Milan player isn’t afraid of the competition so far. Ekdal is disqualified and therefore no doubt about the Rincon-Thorsby duo. Behind, however, Ferrari has a slight advantage over Magnani.
Sassuolo, Dionisi front-wheel drive
The disqualification of Rogerio opens the doors of the left corisa to Kyriakopoulos who then finds his natural role. On the opposite lane, Muldur risks being overtaken by Toljan. Berardi, Raspadori and Defrel in support of Scamacca in a 4-2-3-1 dedicated to the attack, with Frattesi and Lopez in the middle.
VENICE-NAPLES, Sunday at 3 p.m.
Venice, almost all negative
As communicated by the company, seven players tested negative. A wide choice, therefore, also thanks to market arrivals for Zanetti. Nsame continues to carry out specific post-injury work and the various fantasy coaches will therefore have to wait to see him from the start of the match. The Amamu, Henry and Okereke trio are ready in attack while there is some doubt between defense and midfield. Ullmann didn’t disfigure against Inter and had a slight advantage over Haps. Tessmann must instead defend against the attack of Crnigoj and Busio
Naples, stop for Lozano. Who ahead?
Few doubts in defense: Spalletti continues with this line at 4 always seen in the last outings. Di Lorenzo and Mario Rui will therefore be the sliders of the band. Lobotka favored in the middle while in attack the news related to the injury of Lozano is now known, which could remain absent for a long time. Elmas goes towards confirmation while the striker remains a question mark. Osimhen is ready to return but Mertens doesn’t want to lose his job. For the moment, the balance leans on the side of the Nigerian
UDINESE-TORINO, Sunday at 6 p.m.
Udinese, Pablo Marì ready immediately?
The winter transfer market deprived the Juventus defense of Samir. The Brazilian has indeed moved away from Watford’s ‘English cousins’. Pablo Marì has arrived in Udine and already seems in contention for a place from the first minute. On the right, in fact, Molina returns while on the other side it is head to head between Perez and, in fact, Marì. In front of her, the disqualification of Deulofeu must be repaired. Possible tandem formed by Beto and Sucss even if Cioffi could possibly decide otherwise. Everything will also depend on the condition of Pereyra who has had shoulder surgery
Turin, prepares a relay in attack
Bremer is fresh from the renewal but will not be able to “celebrate” the extension of his contract on the pitch: the defender is indeed disqualified and the match in civilian clothes will have to be seen. During the week, all the newcomers were presented. Very motivated Pellegri who hopes to be able to take the field first in the Granada jersey. It must be said that the fatigue conditions of Sanabria, back from South America, must be checked. The Paraguayan shouldn’t be worried but a relay race with Pellegri is planned
JUVENTUS-VERONA, Sunday at 8:45 p.m.
Juventus, Allegri immediately drops the ace
A card should not be played in the first hand, but football is another story and the ace can be put on the table immediately. VlaDy is on the launch pad, much to the delight of fantasy fans and coaches. Vlahovic in the cup with Dybala but not only: Alvaro Morata is also ready in the trident! Looking at the other departments, there is a Bernardeschi victim of muscle fatigue and an unavailable Alex Sandro. Locatelli is instead disqualified. Inside Zakaria as behind Chiellini he is expected to join de Ligt with favorite De Sciglio for a starting shirt down the left lane
Verona, MP Kalinic Simeone?
Heavy disqualification for Tudor and Verona. Turin will miss the “Cholito” Simeone. In attack on pole is Kalinic. In fact, Lasagna has been used more as a support for the first striker lately, but maybe against Juventus he could be the incoming striker. Seen from this angle, the presence of Barak and Caprari on the trocar seems certain. Difficult for Depaoli to undermine Faraoni as he heads towards the Veloso-Ilic tandem in the middle
SALERNITANA-SPEZIA, Monday at 8:45 p.m.
Salernitana, many new faces immediately on the pitch
Management had promised a market of many names and certainly, at least numerically, the word was kept. Now we need to figure out if all the new faces will be able to meet the needs of the team. In goal it is immediately to Sepe as well as to Dragusin in defense (Veseli is absent due to disqualification). Many candidates in the median: Radovanovic and Bohinen could win. In attack, on the other hand, Verdi and Bonazzoli should be there from the start with Mousset immediately trying to win a shirt as a starter.
Spice, except Erlic
Only one “physical” doubt for Thiago Motta. The coach expects to have Erlic back by Monday with Hristov ready in case Croatia forfeits. In the middle, another confirmation for Kiwior: Kovalenko instead could be used instead of Sala. Gyasi and Reca will be the boards’ sliders while in attack Agudelo hopes to win on the green
