Depleted Roma aiming for a point against Juventus - get Serie A 2021-22 fantasy tips
AS Roma (ROM) host Juventus (NAP) in matchweek 21 of the 2021-22 Serie A season at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday, January 9. The game will kick off at 11:00 PM IST.
ROM vs JUV Dream11 Prediction
Both AS Roma and Juventus have rung in the new year without a win, and the upcoming fixture will be crucial in the quest of a top-four finish in the Serie A.
Jose Mourinho’s Roma sit seventh on the points table, and are coming off a 3-1 defeat to AC Milan. The Giallorossi - rocked by injuries and suspensions - will start as underdogs in the contest
Juventus, on the other hand, escaped with a 1-1 draw at Napoli to avoid defeat in their first outing of 2022. The Biaconeri have won three of their last five head-to-head meetings with Roma and are backed as favourites to come out on top with a third successive win in league matchups.
ROM vs JUV Dream11 tips for Serie A 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Tammy Abraham has been Roma’s go-to forward in Serie A, grabbing seven goals and three assists since his summer transfer from Chelsea. The 24-year-old has 439 fantasy points to his name and priced at 9.5 credits, the England attacker is a worthy option to consider given Juventus will reportedly play without their central defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci
Top tip: Best midfielder
Federico Chiesa will shoulder the responsibility of creating attacking opportunities from Juventus’ midfield engine room. The Italian was on the scoresheet in the Bianconeri’s 1-1 draw at Napoli and is well-placed to outmanoeuvre his way past the Roma defence. Chiesa enters the fixture with 417 fantasy points, on the back of two goals and two assists in the Serie A and will be the player to watch out for in this fixture.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
With AS Roma’s defence leaking 24 goals in Serie A 2021-22, Juventus’ Juan Cuadrado will hope to exploit the gaps. The wing-back has contributed four goals this season and could be an asset for fantasy players with regards to a goalscoring defender.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Wojciech Szczesny is the first-choice pick. The Juventus custodian has kept three clean sheets in the league this term, and in light of Roma’s current problems, fantasy players can place their trust in the former Arsenal gloveman to deny any scoring attempts from the likes of Tammy Abraham and Co. on Sunday.
ROM vs JUV probable playing XI
ROM playing XI (probable): Rui Patricio (goalkeeper), Bryan Cristante, Chris Smalling, Roger Ibanez, Stephan El Shaarawy, Jordan Veretout, Lorenzo Pellegrini (captain), Matias Vina, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Tammy Abraham, Eldor Shomurodov
JUV playing XI (probable): Wojciech Szczesny (goalkeeper), Juan Cuadrado, Matthijs de Ligt, Daniele Rugani, Mattia De Sciglio, Weston McKennie, Manuel Locatelli, Rodrigo Bentancur, Federico Bernardeschi, Paulo Dybala (captain), Federico Chiesa
