MIL Vs BOG Fantasy Picks
Asked to act as the guardian of a howler of a backline, Lukasz Skorupski (8.5) could have been easily excused for a decline in form. However, he needed no such rescuing with him waging a lone battle for the side to rescue crucial points for the club to ensure their survival.
For AC Milan, managing to keep hold of fullback Theo Hernandez (8.5) was hailed as a massive triumph. The defender was exceptional last season, someone who utilised his penchant for marauding into the side’s attacking plays to pull off a bevy of goals and assists.
Having bolstered their defence towards the tail end of last season, we have two more names be inculcated in our setup from AC Milan. Both Simon Kjaer (8.5) and Davide Calabria (8.5) will make a foray into our side, two players bestowed with a well endowed brand of defensive skill set.
Hakan Calhanoglu (9.5) was the pinnacle of AC Milan’s flair filled resurgence in the league last season. The midfielder came alive ever since the league returned, popping with a staggering 9 goals and 9 assists to see him become the first pick from the side.
Where Hakan was crucial in defence, Franck Kessie (8.5) took centrestage in the CDM role. His tenacity saw him provide unstinted support to the side’s defence, with his unbridled tackles and blocks seeing him stamp down on the opposition’s attack.
The only reason Bologna sat way above the relegation zone last season was due to their attack. The side unabedtly kept piling on the goals, all credit to Riccardo Orsolini (10) who had a well rounded 8 goals and 6 assists.
The more defensive minded Nicolas Dominguez (8.5) will be his partner on the day, someone whose expertise in pulling off recoveries and aerial dules will be required in abundance today.
Despite only being rolled into the club in January, striker Zlatan Ibrahimov (10) still ended up a neat 10 goals for the side. He alongside top scorer Ante Rebic (10) who has 11 goals and 3 assists completely transformed the side’s attack to give the side the look of such a ruthless machine.
Sampdoria will meanwhile see top scorer in the last season with 9 goals and 5 assists, Musa Barrow (9.5) bring down the curtains on our set of picks for the skirmish.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 10 goals and 5 assists last season see Zlatan be our captain for today while Hakan is the vice-captain.
Lukasz, Calabria, Kjaer, Hernandez, Kessie, Hakan, Dominguez, Orsolini, Rebic, Zlatan, Barrow
