Carrying on in our attempt to get your fantasy football team off the ground, today we suggest a free draft for the Serie A fantasy. Feel free to take the team apart any way you want, use some of our choices, or replace them as you see fit.
Once more, we’ve decided to assemble this squad based on the players’ overall scores for this season, but have taken into account their reputation, the fixtures ahead of them. Personal preference may have also factored in.
Goalkeeper: Emil Audero
Defenders: Ricardo Rodriguez – Cristiano Biraghi – Hans Hateboer – Darijo Srna
Midfielders: Hakan Calhanoglu – Nicolo Barella – Manuel Lazzari – Bryan Cristante
Forwards: Krzysztof Piatek – Federico Chiesa
Reserves: Luigi Sepe – Nikola Milenkovic – Jordan Veretout – Under Cengiz

How did the players end up being chosen?
In goal, we’ve decided that there are no free options better than Emil Audero. The Italian youngster is part of an otherwise experienced Sampdoria side that has managed to maintain seventh place, largely on the strength of their defensive record.
Our defensive line includes Rodriguez and Biraghi , players doing very well for themselves for important Serie A sides, AC Milan and Fiorentina. We have also decided on adding Darijo Srna. Yes, that Srna! The legendary Croatian defender has done well in his very first season in Italy, and will continue to try and help Cagliari avoid the drop.
Calhanoglu is Milan’s main creative force and has earned some of the highest number of points for any midfirelder in FootballCoin. The same goes for Lazzari, whom Spal will undoubtedly have a difficult time hanging on to considering the interest he is likely to be generating.
In our attacking line, we simply had to pick Krzysztof Piatek. The Polish striker’s performances may have cooled a bit, but his 13 Serie A goals have been enough to recommend him to some of the most important teams across Europe.
We’ve partnered Piatek up with Federico Chiesa, an Italian wonderkid with likely a great future ahead of himself. It’s true that he has scored fewer goals than his colleague (only three). But his performances have shown great maturity for his 21 years of age, and Chiesa has done well to break into Fiorentina’s competitive side.
Who have we missed? Do you think you can create a better squad? The choices are all up to you and FootballCoin is ready to reward the top manager with XFC prizes. Don’t forget to register your draft for the upcoming Serie A contest.
