Serie A Team of the Week – Round 36


There were few scorers in the last round, but nobody managed to notch a brace, so there were not any particularly high point totals.

Alisson: four clean sheets in the weekend, as he has often done this year the Brazilian goalkeeper stood out with a couple of monster interventions against Cagliari, first on an attempted own goal and then coming out to shoot the gap against Marco Sau.

Andrea Ranocchia: he was inserted at the last moment as Joao Miranda got hurt in the warm-ups and he found the opener in the Udinese game with a brilliant header off a corner kick that kissed the far post before going in. He was the top earner in the last round with nine points. 

Aleksandar Kolarov: Roma held in check Cagliari’s strikers on Sunday night and the fullback was solid both in his usual position and also as emergency centre-back to finish the game since both Kostas Manolas and Elio Capradossi picked up injuries.

Felipe: Benevento are already relegated, but their offence is still dangerous and scored thrice against Udinese last week. Spal resisted to an initial flurry and then had an easier time once they got the lead.

Francesco Acerbi: Sassuolo’s back-line had an easy time stopping Sampdoria’s attack, as Fabio Quagliarella was clearly hampered by a recent knock and Dawid Kownacki is still pretty raw.

Rafinha: two Inter midfielders hit the target against Udinese, collecting six points as the squad did not concede. The Brazilian trequartista finally broke through with an easy finish on a counter. Borja Valero brought home six as well.

Marcelo Brozovic: the Croatian continues to impress and picked up two assists in the Udinese rout, where he fed Ranocchia for the first goal and then Mauro Icardi on a quick action at the very end of the first half.

Cengiz Under: the Turkish starlet solved the sneakily difficult match against Cagliari with a wicked daisy-cutter after 15 minutes.

Massimo Gobbi: a rare appearance for the veteran left back, who was recently outplayed by Pawel Jaroszynski. He started with the new coach at the helm and assisted in both Chievo’s all-important goals, first with a magnificent cross, while Mariusz Stepinski did pretty much all the work in the second one.

Alberto Paloschi: 13 strikers were tied with 4 points in this round, most of them thanks to a goal. The Spal’s centre-forward buried one of the most significant goals this week, pouncing on a rebound after Mirco Antenucci hit the bar and helping taming Benevento.

Douglas Costa: he and Adem Ljajic amassed four points thanks to multiple assist. The Brazilian speedster once again terrorized the opposing defence and superbly set up Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala for the Scudetto-clinching goals against Bologna.
