Serie A Team of the Week – Round 25


Mattia Perin (7 points): several clean sheets in this round and among the goalkeepers that managed to do so, the Juventus one had the most impactful performance, denying a strike by Nicola Sansone with an eye-popping save.

Armando Izzo (9 points): Torino once again stymied their opponents with a great collective effort and, on top of that, the centre-back broke the deadlock pouncing on a loose ball in the box.

Elseid Hysaj (7 points): he is generally not particularly flashy on offence, but he delivered on Sunday with a terrific touch with the outside of his foot to spring Piotr Zielinski free.

Andrea Conti (7 points): he is not getting much run because Davide Calabria has been very serviceable, but when he is fielded he always shows his proficiency in the final third, this time by sliding it to Samu Castillejo to set up the final goal.

Franck Kessiè (9 points): his goal was in the air after a string of good performances and he broke through against Empoli with a lovely lob over the goalkeeper, showing that he is not only an energy player.

Samu Castillejo (8 points): it is tough to overtake Suso in that spot, but he made the most of a rare opportunity to start with a pinpoint through ball for Franck Kessiè and toe poking it home to round up the score.

Piotr Zielinski (6 points): he too was coming in hot in the last few matches and he capitalized against Parma with a lovely finish from angled position.

Iago Falque (6 points): his season is not going as expected, to the point that he has even lost a lot of playing time, but he broke through on Saturday with a key from the heart of the box to help Torino best Atalanta.

Arkadiusz Milik (7 points): Napoli’s attack needed to give an answer after sputtering recently and their most prolific striker stepped up with a brace, sneaking a free kick under the wall and then slotting one in the bottom right corner.

Edin Dzeko (7 points): he spared Roma’s blushes with a clever thigh deflection in the final minutes in Frosinone, while in the first goal he took advantage of an howler by a defender for an easy finish for his standards.

Camillo Ciano (6 points): his potent shot bent Robin Olsen’s hand to give Frosinone the lead, but the prettiest part of his performance was that head fake with which he lured three defenders before slipping it a wide-open Andrea Pinamonti.
