Patrick Ciurria and his endless journey, Baldanzi to amaze again, the unpredictability of Ngonge… The deployables according to the Fantaredazione team
February 9 – Milan
Not even the time to count the results of last day that Serie A is already back, in fact, the advance between Milan and Turin will open the curtain of the twenty-second day which will close with the postponement between Sampdoria and Inter on Monday, again at 20.45 . Between injuries and players flown away from Italy, football never stands still and, consequently, also Fantasy Football. It is essential to have a long squad also made up of low cost players who in some cases can change the fate of a day. Let’s see together, therefore, which are the 5 best low cost players to deploy in this round of the championship.
Lucky Nadir (13)
The full-back born in 1999 was bought by Sassuolo in the winter transfer window to replace the departing Kyriakopoulos and the injured Toljan, who will still have some left. His debut with the black and green shirt coincided with the victory of Dionisi’s team against Atalanta, Zortea’s former team. The number 21 was one of his best gods, carrying out a careful defensive phase and always proposing on the right wing together with Berardi. On the twenty-first day of Serie A, Sassuolo will face Udinese, not the simplest of opponents, but who are struggling a lot without the magic of Deulofeu and Pereyra. In his lane, Zortea will find Udogie to give him a hard time, but the former Atalanta full-back has shown that he can hold his own after canceling the accelerations of Gasperini’s furies for all 90 minutes. In six league appearances he has already found a goal, the time has come to mark the scoreboard even with an assist perhaps for Defrel who has one of his favorite victims in Udinese. Nadir, translated from Arabic, means “precious”, “rare”: Sassuolo, with him, may have found the missing emerald for its rearguard.
Patrick Ciurria (36)
Since Palladino has been on the Monza bench, Ciurria has become an essential player for the mechanisms of his team. Flexibility and spirit of sacrifice, these are the characteristics that have allowed him to establish himself in Serie A as well. The number 84, in fact, was born as a second striker but since he was moved to full-back in the midfield 4, he seems to have found a second youth. His start to 2023 is dizzying, like that of Monza: the former Pordenone has already scored 3 goals as well as having given an assist to Carlos Augusto against Fiorentina. In the next match that will see the red and whites clash against Bologna, the number 84 will have the possibility of redeeming the insufficient performance with which he closed the match against Sampdoria. Ciurria was one of the hottest names during the cold January fantasy football auctions, now he must also warm the hearts of the fantasy coaches who believed in him. In the parenthesis with the Spezia shirt, Stroppa had nicknamed him as “Fante” and the saying is immediately served: “If you are hesitant, play the knave”. Impossible not to deploy it.
Cyril Ngonge (28)
Hellas Verona has produced several talents in recent years and it seems that with the arrival of Ngonge history could repeat itself once again. The young Belgian, taken on a free transfer from Groningen, has already shown most of his qualities in 85 minutes: speed, quickness, power and more than polite feet. In the two parts of the match granted by Zaffaroni, the Belgian playmaker was one of the two Hellas Verona players with the most shots (six, like Lasagna), the Hellas player with the most shots on target (three) and one of the three with more successful dribbling (two, like Doig and Lazovic). Furthermore, against Lazio he also gave the Venetian team a draw thanks to a header following the development of an inactive ball. In the next match, at home against Salernitana, Ngonge should start, favored by Djuric’s knee problems, alongside Lazovic to support Lasagna as the lone striker. In the 2021/2022 season he received the prize for the best goal in the Eredivisie, who knows if he will be able to repeat himself in Serie A.
Thomas Baldanzi (23)
Class of 2003, fantasy media of 7.38, 4 goals and 12 games to vote, these data could be enough to line up Baldanzi against Spezia. After the goal against Inter and the sale of Bajrami by Empoli, Baldanzi has become Zanetti’s favorite glue between midfield and attack. In the last match against Roma he was the only one to bring inventiveness and initiatives among his teammates as certified by the 6.5 on his report card despite the 2-0 defeat. On Saturday at 15:00 the Tuscans will be waiting for Gotti’s Spezia at the Castellani, a team that makes defense and restarting its main mantra. Don’t worry, “baby Baldanzi” knows how to move in tight spaces, in fact, thanks to his low center of gravity and his innate ball-and-chain agility, he manages to turn the head of most of the defenders he meets on his way from the midfield circle at the door. Together with Bellingham and Moukoko, he is the only one born after 2003 to have already scored at least 4 goals among the greats in the 5 main European championships. He is inspired by Dybala and dreams of Klopp’s Liverpool, for now, however, he must only confirm himself with other goals. Lo Spezia and Dragowski are warned.
Rasmus Hojlund (38)
It may be the similarity of surnames, it may be the similarity in look, it may be the fact that both came from the northern lands, but the one between Hojlund and Haaland is a more than apt comparison. The Goddess scouts’ latest discovery is wowing everyone with its explosiveness coupled with a composure that belongs to a select few. For Hojlund there are already 4 goals scored in this league also enhanced by an assist and his fantasy average is around 6.9, not bad for someone who has just turned 20. The number 17 hasn’t found the net for 3 games, far too many, and Lazio is a more than valid reason to find him again. Not the easiest match for Gasperini’s boys, but if the will is to reach the Champions League, this direct clash becomes essential for fourth place. Casale and Romagnoli are excellent defenders, however they will also have to think about Boga and Lookman, thus inevitably leaving more space for the Norwegian boy. If Atalanta find the goal, Hojlund will certainly have a hand in it.
