Serie A Team of the Week – Round 29


Juan Musso (7 points): a fairly good amount of clean sheets in this round, as seven teams managed to hold the opponent scoreless. Among the goalkeepers that succeeded, Musso had the finest performance, including a superhuman save on a point-blank header where he snatched the ball just before it crossed the goal line.

Francesco Vicari (9 points): his season has been up-and-down and he has often ridden the pine, but he came up big on Sunday, burying a pretty header by masterfully attacking the near post on a corner kick and gifting a very significant win to his side.

Fabio Pisacane (9 points): his header directed the Chievo game in Cagliari’s way even though the opponents had a far better start of the contest.

Luca Pellegrini (7 points): both Sardinian fullbacks picked up an assist in this round, so also Fabrizio Cacciatore amassed seven points. The young Roma loanee perfectly set up Pisacane’s opener with a pinpoint delivery.

Joachim Andersen (5 points): he lived up to the hype in this round by shutting down Krzysztof Piatek and the rest of Milan attackers on Saturday night in partnership with Omar Colley.

Rolando Mandragora (6 points): he bagged an otherworldly goal, volleying the ball after settling it and putting it in the top corner from about 25 meters out with an amazing trajectory.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (6 points): the Sergeant picked a big spot to resume scoring as he decided the clash with Inter that could turn out to be very meaningful in the Champions League race. The header from close range was relatively easy for one with his physical means.

Joao Pedro (6 points): he delivered with Leonardo Pavoletti out of the lineup, finishing with great aplomb in front of Stefano Sorrentino after a great solo counter by Nicolò Barella.

Gregoire Defrel (6 points): he got a big assist from Gianluigi Donnarumma 40 seconds into the Milan clash, but also showed well throughout the contest, confirming that he has finally got off his schneid.

Artur Ionita (6 points): he joined the party on Friday on the hapless Chievo by knocking it on goal with a superb diving header.

Duvan Zapata (8 points): he was one of the only two top striker that shined in this round and propelled Atalanta to victory in Parma with two very opportunistic goals, where he did most of the work by shaking loose in perfect position and with great timing.

Simone Verdi (6 points): he assisted Arkadiusz Milik’s early goal, although the Polish hammer created it with a ballerina-like turn, and then scored one of his own cashing in on a fast-break with an easy finish.
