Tip 1 – Palermo to fight for survival against Sampdora.
With Verona getting relegated last week their now is a battle between three teams to not go into the last two relegation spots. Palermo have perhaps got the biggest chance this week then the three. Carpi will play the champions Juventus, whereas Frosinone will face an embarrassed AC Milan. With Palermo knowing that a victory against a poor Sampdoria side could help them escape the relegation zone, this match has become their most important fixture to date. Both teams are known this season to have a poor defence and so it may be smart to avoid defensive options for this game.
So with this in mind we recommend that you put Franco Vázquez in your team if you believe a Palermo victory is on the cards. Vázquez has been phenomenal for Palermo despite their poor league form. The attacking midfielder has got 6 goals 7 assists and has been a major player in nearly every victory that Palermo have been in. Against a team that has conceded 51 goals he may have a chance to add some more goals and assists to his already impressive season. Another option could be the Swedish midfielder Oscar Hiljemark as he has been a valuable asset for Palermo in the heart of the midfield. Hiljemark has been a consistent player for Palermo, despite not having the best of performances the centre midfielder has got a solid 4 goals and 4 assists and if he has a good game he certainly could provide a couple of goals.
Tip 2 – Bologna to make it two wins in a row.
Bologna performed very well last Gameweek against Genoa and are nearly mathematically safe from relegation. With Empoli having very little to play for it could be Bologna’s hunger to win the game that could get them the victory. However it’s hard to say who will score in this match and so we recommend that you put Antonio Mirante in your team as your fantasy keeper. Mirante has been a game changer in some of Bologna’s matches and his clean sheet against Genoa could spur him on to claim yet another clean sheet. Mirante may not have kept a lot of clean sheets but he has been a fairly decent sot stopper for the team currently sitting in 15th.
If you’re struggling on defensive players then it could also be smart to put Adam Masina in your line up. The left back has been one of the top performing players this season for Palermo and with 2 goals and 3 assists he could provide you with some attacking point’s as well.
Tip 3 – Inter Milan to overpower Lazio.
Inter Milan have lost all hopes of a Champions League place, if Roma win their next game, and they will certainly see it as a missed opportunity. However they will still want to finish the season on a high. Lazio on the other hand have lost their opportunity at Europa League football. In terms of form, Lazio have lost their last 2 previous games whereas Inter have recorded a win after a rocky run of results. Mauro Icardi will have to be at his best if Inter Milan are to overcome Lazio. Recently the argentine has been a standout player during their inconsistent run of form. With 15 goals and 4 assists, including an assist in his last game, Icardi will be a player who could move to a bigger European side if Inter Milan do not get Champions League football.
Tip 4 – Napoli to make a statement.
Napoli fans will be distraught they could not secure a Serie A title. Having been on top for most of the first half of the season. Napoli failed to win enough matches and allowed Juventus to their fifth successive Serie A title. Napoli now has a risk of finishing 3rd after Roma beat them last Gameweek 1-0. However Napoli are against an Atalanta side that have guaranteed their survival this season. We believe that players such as Marek Hamsik and Lorenzo Insigne will be crucial members in what could be a huge victory for Napoli. Both men have a combined total of 35 goals and assists in the Serie A. So more than likely at least a goal and an assist will occur in this match. Considering Lazio’s recent bad run of form it could turn out to be a bad night for the club who at the beginning of the season were dreaming of European football.
Tip 5 – Sassuolo to beat a relegated Verona.
Verona will be disappointed to have been relegated this season. The second half of the season was a huge improvement from the first and if their remarkable comeback came earlier in the season Verona still could have a chance to be in the Serie A. Sassuolo have performed well this season and are probably were they deserve to be. With some improvement next season they could be a big threat in Italy and possibly go for European football. For this match it would be a safe bet to say that Verona will lose. If you had to pick a Sassuolo player to put in your team we will recommend Francesco Acerbi. The goal scoring Defender could grab your team some valuable points by not only scoring but keeping a clean sheet against a Verona side in Mourning.
