Serie A Team of the Week – Round 15


Goals galore in Serie A this week: here are the top 11 perfomers.

Gianluigi Donnarumma (7 points): just four clean sheets in this round, by Milan, Torino, Napoli and Juventus. The starlet once again showed off his cat-like reflexes with a pair of superb saves on a header by Iago Falque and on an attempt by Andrea Belotti.

Faouzi Ghoulam (9 points): his return on the pitch after over a year and two major knee injuries could not have gone any better as he perfectly set up the two goal by Arkadiusz Milik with crisp crosses.

Joao Cancelo (7 points): the ex-Inter run amok on the wings on Friday and fed Mario Mandzukic with a sharp delivery for the game-winning goal.

Kalidou Koulibaly (7 points): Napoli had an easy time containing Frosinone’s attackers and the Senegalese beast got credited with an assist for his pass to Adam Ounas prior to his goal.

Alfred Duncan (6 points): a stellar showing by Sassuolo’s workhorse, who single-handedly built a two-nothing lead at the beginning of the second half with a great strike from distance and a perfect square ball for Khouma Babacar after a powerful solo run down the left flank.

Adam Ounas (6 points): the youngster filled in on the right flank in a back-up heavy XI, run circles around the adversaries all game long and opened the score with an amazing effort from deep.

Artur Ionita (6 points): he was a key protagonist in Cagliari’s dramatic comeback, kick-starting it with a header on a set piece and then finding Marco Sau with a long through ball for the late equalizer.

Piotr Zielinski (5 points): Fabian Ruiz has been outplaying him in the past month, but he reminded everybody what he is capable of with a sudden and precise shot to break the deadlock against Frosinone.

Duvan Zapata (14 points): a perfect revenge game for the Atalanta striker, who punished his former team with a hat-trick. The three goals were pretty easy: a flying deflection on a corner kick and two comfortably finishes from pretty much the penalty spot.

Arkadiusz Milik (8 points): he has re-inserted himself into the fold in Napoli’s attack with three goals in the last two games. Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne are certainly flashier, but sometimes you need someone who can score the easy and dirty goals too, like it was the case on Sunday.

Antonino La Gumina (6 points): reinvigorated after the arrival of his former coach Giuseppe Iachini, he is looking more and more at ease in the top league and the triangle that led to Francesco Caputo’s goal was a thing of beauty. He then put his team on top with a clinical tap-in.
