Expected to lineup on the right of Italy's front three, Federico Chiesa (€7.0m) has enjoyed a very successful 2021 so far, scoring 12 times for club side Juventus in this year alone. Despite being listed as a midfielder, Chiesa being fielded as a wide frontman could do wonders for his fantasy point returns on Matchday 1 as Italy face Turkey.
Tomas Soucek (€6.5m) is also coming off the back of excellent form for his club side, finding the net ten times for West Ham from central midfield over the course of this past season's Premier League. However, whilst Soucek will prove a huge threat from set pieces and through his late runs into the opposition penalty area, Chiesa will be afforded far less defensive responsibility. Add this to fact that he plays for a better team in Italy and the Juventus man is likely to be afforded more clear cut opportunities in front of goal. Therefore, he is to be favoured in this head-to-head.
Verdict: Federico Chiesa
