Serie A Team of the Week – Round 35


Bartlomiej Dragowski (7 points): he came through time and time for Empoli against Fiorentina, helping them keep a rare clean sheet with various great saves on attempts and the final one on a Dusan Vlahovic’s point-blank header was simply a thigh of beauty.

Felipe (13 points): he is the second defender to bag two goals in the same game after Merih Demiral managed few rounds back. He took advantage of Chievo’s abysmal defending on set pieces to perforate them first with a header and then with a tap-in after settling the ball in a rather fortuitous way.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo (6 points): another productive outing for the right back, who was squaring off against a tough opponent like Cristiano Biraghi, but he came out victorious and set up Diego Farias’ game-winner with a fantastic delivery.

Jens Larsen (5 points): Udinese deserve a token spot for holding Inter scoreless and the Danish defender, on top of his diligent work on Ivan Perisic, also took part to their offense despite playing as right centre-back in this case.

Jasmin Kurtic (8 points): after Felipe was done scoring, he put his stamp on the final two SPAL goals in Verona, setting up Sergio Floccari with a timely through ball and then scoring on his own on a great trail. He has been an unsung hero all season long.

Alessandro Murgia (6 points): the Lazio alum has been able to carve up a significant role for himself at SPAL in the last month and he picked up two assists against Chievo, teeing up Felipe with precise balls in both occasions.

Jeremie Boga (4 points): he has been on a launching pad for a while and he took the Frosinone game by the scruff of its neck coming off the bench with his electric forays and ultimately knotted it up by sneaking by his defender on the far post for a close-range finish.

Dries Mertens (4 points): after trying multiple times, he found a way to beat Alessio Cragno late with a surprisingly good header that kick-started Napoli’s comeback. He has been the fruit that keeps on giving in the last six or seven rounds.

Fabio Quagliarella (8 points): he exploited the friendly nature of the match between Parma and Sampdoria to extend his lead in the scorers’ chart with a penalty and a routine finish, bringing his remarkable seasonal tally to 25 goals.

Diego Farias (4 points): he schooled Nikola Milenkovic on a header despite being way shorter, propelling Empoli to a massive win. He has been rejuvenated since moving to Tuscany in January.

Duvan Zapata (4 points): not his most dominant performance, but his opportunistic goal turned the tide in the clash with Lazio after Atalanta had gone down in the score and the Biancocelesti were unable to match his physicality all game long.
