Player to watch – Lewis Ferguson

It has been a terrific season for Scottish midfielder Lewis Ferguson. He’s scored six and assisted three times in Serie A and has been a virtual ever present, failing to start only once in the league.

Not afraid to shoot

Ferguson averages 1.9 shots per game in Serie A this term. Only the injured Joshua Zirkzee has fired in more shots for the top four hopefuls so there’ll be plenty of onus on Ferguson to test the visiting keeper here.
