Every day we bring you what we think are some sensible selection options based on today’s upcoming matches; we’re not going to promise that these are guaranteed winners because if we could do that we’d all be millionaires by now. These players are all solid picks based on recent stats and their next opponents so check them out.
If you’re a Premier League fan there’s not much for you tonight but it is time to revise your Italian stats because we have three games including two from Serie A and one from the English Championship. This is our entry for Mondogoal’s Monday Global Freeroll.
- Lazio vs Sassuolo
- Brighton vs Leeds United
- Fiorentina vs Napoli
Here’s Our Pick:
We’re backing Brighton’s chances of a clean sheet against a Leeds team without a league win in ten games; the Seagulls are in fourth place with five wins from the last seven.
The Serie A matches should be very close affairs with all four teams in the top half of the league and on similar runs of form; they dominate our midfield.
Three of our four defensive positions are occupied by Brighton players – David Stockdale in goal behind Gaetan Bong and Bruno; Napoli’s Vlad Chiriches makes up the remaining spot.
We have a four man midfield containing consistent players from all four Italian teams – Borja Valero from Fiorentina, Allan from Napoli, Marco Parolo from Lazio and Francesco Magnanelli from Sassuolo.
Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain is the obvious but expensive choice up front but we have no budgetary problems today; Brighton’s Jamie Murphy and Fiorentina’s Nikola Kalinic hold the remaining two positions.
*In the event that certain players are not selected, last-minute changes may be required.
