Five Serie A Players to Look Out for in Round 22: Including Milan Man

Round 22 of Serie A will kick-off on Friday with an encounter between Bologna and Benevento. Nonetheless, two big clashes are in store for Calcio fans this weekend, as Napoli host Juventus on Saturday, whilst Inter and Lazio go head-to-head on Sunday night. But throughout all the action, we picked five Serie A players to keep an eye on during the long weekend.

Musa Barrow (Bologna)

The young Gambian striker is fresh from scoring a brace in the derby against Parma last round.

Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic says they’re working with Barrow to transform him into a true center-forward.

Their opponents Benevento aren’t exactly known for their defensive solidity, therefore the 22-year-old will have the opportunity to maintain his scoring run.

Amir Rrahmani (Napoli)

In the presence of the top center back pairing of Kalidou Koulibaly and Kostas Manolas, Amir Rrahmani remained on the bench for almost the entire first part of the season.

But with the Senegalese being out due to a positive Covid-19 test, and the Greek ruled out with an injury, the former Verona man will finally be able to enjoy a run of matches.

However, Napoli’s opponents in round 22 will be none other than Juventus, thus the Kosovo international could be set for a “Make or Break” test against Cristiano Ronaldo and company.

Diogo Dalot (Milan)

The Manchester United loanee is yet to cement himself a spot within Stefano Pioli’s best XI, as Theo Hernandez and Davide Calabria have been the starting full backs.

But with the latter missing the round 22 trip to Spezia throughout a suspension, the Portuguese has a chance to prove his worth while playing on his arguably preferred right flank.

Sergei Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio)

For one reason or another, the Serbian midfielder seems to produce his best performances while playing against Inter.

Last season, he completely dominated the middle of the park when Lazio took a hit at the Nerazzurri’s title hopes, and this season, he scored the equalizer in the 1-1 draw when the two sides met at the Olimpico last October.

Therefore, Antonio Conte must particularly keep an eye on the 25-year-old once he takes the field at the Guiseppe Meazza.

Dennis Man (Parma)

If truth to be told, we still don’t know much about Parma’s new player, beside obviously possessing a cool name.

Nonetheless, the Romanian is highly rated by his new employers, and after two substitute appearances, he could finally be set for a starting berth at the left wing when the Ducali travel to meet Hellas Verona in round 22.

So if you’re free on Monday night, keep an eye on this Man.
