Fantacalcio, the best reserve goalkeepers in Serie A

Fantasy football is more than just a game. The players spend hours and hours studying the best shots of the year: the common goal is to get in front of the end of the season, but as always only one will celebrate. So here are our tips on the main second and third goalkeepers to take absolutely, or at least to take into account. The door is sacred and that rare +1 – if untouched – can be the balance not only on winning or losing a day, but also an entire championship.

This year, with the group of return asymmetric compared to the first leg, the alternations between the posts have changed, shifting the attention of the jockeys on the hierarchies between first and second goalkeepers. The most popular deputy is definitely David Ospina of Napoli: in this start of the season, the Colombian soon earned the title of the Neapolitan goal, also thanks to the injury of Meret, showing immediately great protagonist in the results and deserving the trust of Spalletti. Without spending a madness, the South American player represents a reserve of great luxury. The Neapolitan hierarchy is completed by the 3rd Davide Marfella, a young goalkeeper born in 1999.

Perin (Juventus)

Another important name is that of Mattia Perin, second goalkeeper of Juventus behind Szczseny: the Bianconeri probably have the best second defender of the league. The former Genoa will most likely find plenty of room in Serie A given the many games that await the Old Lady. His purchase is highly recommended, considering the almost discounted turnover that Massimiliano Allegri in the short run. Behind the two, remains the “usual” Carlo Pinsoglio, and locker room man of Juventus.

But if you got Pepe Reina as number one, you can’t let Strakosha get away. Even with Sarri, the Albanian goalkeeper is behind the Spaniard in the white-headed hierarchies, accomplices the latest outings not lucky for him. He is still a very good player, especially as a reserve goalkeeper for your fantasy football: interesting option yes, but without doing crazy. It completes the Illyrian trio Adamonis.

Sportiello (Atalanta)

In case of need, another valid goalkeeper is definitely Marco Sportiello dell’Atalanta. The Italian player, who played a good season last year, finds himself behind Juan Musso, who arrived in Bergamo this summer for 20 million euros. Sportiello has long been the second goalkeeper of the Goddess, but remains one of the second most reliable lines of the entire Serie A. Some credit you can spend quietly for him. The Nerazzurri’s 3 goalkeeper is Francesco Rossi, born in 1990.

If you have opted for Mike Maignan of Milan, you have to get his deputy Ciprian Tatarusanu. Given the many matches that will see the rossoneri in this season, the coach Stefano Pioli could give a little ‘rest to the French. At the moment the Romanian has collected only one presence in Serie A with the jersey of the Devil, but with the return to the Champions League, could get more space: attention only to the opponent of the match. The third goalkeeper of Milan is the young Alessandro Plizzari, born in 2000.

Fantasy football, watch the hierarchies: Terraciano, Fuzato and Bardi among all

At Fiorentina, the undisputed owner is Bartolmiej Dragowski. The Pole, however, injured in the second finals of the game lost against Napoli with lots of tears of pain, will have to stay out of 4 to 6 weeks: leads wide open for the deputy Pietro Terraciano. It will be the last Italian defender to defend the purple poles against Venice, Cagliari, Lazio, Spezia and Juventus. The second goalkeeper will start again from the nickname of San Pietro, given by the fans due to the various interventions made in his last appearance against Atalanta: a performance that seemed to have brought him above Dragowski in the hierarchy of Italian. The third is Daniele Rosati.

Terracciano (Fiorentina)

Another second goalkeeper could be Daniel Fuzato from Roma. In the summer, the Giallorossi picked up a new number one, Rui Patricio, to defend the posts after several unsuccessful seasons. Immediately behind the former Wolverhampton is the Brazilian class of ’97, great protagonist and starter in the final of last season. Given the different competitions in which Roma participate – Serie A, Coppa Italia, Conference League -, it is not excluded that Josè Mourinho can opt for turnover. The young Fuzato is certainly a good goalkeeper in perspective but he is not yet ready for the Giallorossi title, thanks to the excellent performances of Rui Patricio in this start of the season. In case you have taken Portuguese, you can still take his second. Finally, the third goalkeeper at the moment is Boer.

Look also at Bologna for the second goalkeeper of your fantasy football. For Sinisa Mihajilovic, the first goalkeeper is still Skorupski, but given his ups and downs, sometimes it could be his second Bardi, already employed several times in the friendly pre-season. The Rossoblù are suffering many goals in this first part of the season, who knows that the former Inter can not reverse the trend if called into question. To conclude the squad of goalkeepers of Bologna is Mouhamadou Sarr, a young Senegalese class of 97.

Radu (Inter)

The bets could be on Radu of Inter and Berisha of Torino. The first one remained in the Nerazzurri despite the many rumors that saw him away from Milan, but he will hardly play an important role in the team. Only the turnover decided by Simone Inzaghi could give him some space, but it is really difficult to remove Samir Handanovic, even just for one game. The second goalkeeper of granatas instead remains a real unknown for the world of fantasy football: closed in the hierarchy by Milinkovic-Savic, in the Albanian national team the player is an unstoppable starter. Who knows that Juric does not opt for a slight turnover in view of the many close commitments in November.

It is true that often, the difference can be just the second and third goalkeepers, called for different reasons and able to affect a lot of the final result. But it’s also true that having an excellent number one can help you avoid bad surprises during the season. It is therefore better to opt for a great extreme defender and, if necessary, protect yourself with a decent second: to do this it is essential to understand well the hierarchies of each individual team, to be sure if you take the appropriate replacement.
