Serie A Team of the Week – Round 26


Salvatore Sirigu (7 points): he has not conceded in 557 minutes, beating a Torino’s all-time record and did his part on Sunday too with a superb double instinctual save on Filip Djordjevic early in the second half.

Francesco Acerbi (5 points): after blanketing Krzysztof Piatek in Coppa Italia, he had a repeat by smothering Edin Dzeko, who was rendered harmless in the Derby.

Cristian Ansaldi (5 points): either as a wing back or as a central midfielder, he continues to excel and to serve as a mammoth playmaker in his surprising bounce-back season.

Edoardo Goldaniga (5 points): Frosinone managed to salvage a point on the road despite being down to ten men for an hour thanks to a stellar performance by their back-line, so he and Marco Capuano get a much-deserved shout-out.

Robin Gosens (4 points): he had taken a backseat to Timothy Castagne and Hans Hateboer in recent weeks, but he resurfaced on Sunday with a remarkable showing that culminated in the tap-in that put Fiorentina away.

Tomas Rincon (6 points): he played only eight minutes, but he still had the highest tally among midfielders because he hit the net with a thunderous strike on top of getting two bonus points for the clean sheet.

Danilo Cataldi (5 points): another sub who scored, in pretty similar fashion as he too put it past the goalkeeper with a potent long-range effort. His unbridled celebration was the best scene of the weekend.

Joaquin Correa (4 points): he has had a big of an impact a player can have without scoring against Roma, as he assisted Felipe Caicedo with a gorgeous through ball for the early lead and drew a penalty at the end of an eye-popping run where he blazed past Federico Fazio.

Fabio Quagliarella (8 points): the ageless wonder continues to rack up goals and his acrobatic goals, like the little bicycle kick that broke the deadlock in Ferrara, have almost become routine. He completed the brace with a relatively easy header.

Simone Zaza (6 points): Torino looked for some offense out of the bench to smash Chievo’s brick wall and they found it in the Italian striker, who set up Andrea Belotti’s goal and netted one of his own from distance.

Ignacio Pussetto (4 points): he scored one of the heaviest goal this season as far as the relegation race is concerned as his header after a well-timed cut in the box allowed Udinese to upend a direct rival and build a comfortable lead over the danger zone.
