Serie A Team of the Week – Round 36


Antonio Mirante (7 points): he prevented Roma from going down in the score time and time again in the Juventus clash, superbly rejecting Juan Cuadrado and Paulo Dybala’s point-blank finishes.

Alessio Romagnoli (5 points): just three clean sheets in this round, so all the top point-getters among defenders come from Roma and Milan. The Rossoneri captain did not necessarily have the most imposing outing, but led the back-line in Florence, contributing to holding La Viola scoreless.

Cedric Soares (5 points): Inter easily stopped Chievo on Sunday night, allowing their defenders to haul in five points, which are enough to make the TOTW in this round. The right back contributed to the second goal by hitting the post, then Ivan Perisic cashed in on the rebound.

Kostas Manolas (5 points): the Giallorossi risked a lot as they often looked overwhelmed by the opponents’ pace, but they improved a lot as the game moved along and the Greek centre-back put his agility to good use, catching up quickly and thwarting some perilous situations.

Hakan Calhanoglu (6 points): he must have something against Fiorentina, since he has scored three times and provided three assists in the four match-up with the Gigliati. He punished them again on Saturday with a surprisingly nifty header.

Luis Alberto (6 points): he propelled Lazio to victory in Cagliari by beating Alessio Cragno with a daisy cutter on his third attempt with a powerful effort and then supremely setting up Joaquin Correa on a perfect fast-break.

Alessandro Florenzi (6 points): he could have not found a better way to answer to Cristiano Ronaldo’s barbs as he took advantage of a dead giveaway and chipped it over Wojciech Szczesny, paving the way to a huge win.

Riccardo Orsolini (6 points): another home cooking for Parma and the youngster, who slotted one past Luigi Sepe, who had caught everything up to that point, and also set up Lyanco’s header on a corner kick.

Stefano Okaka (7 points): a stupendous performance for the Udinese tank, who basically took down Frosinone on his own, opening the score by making his way through several defenders with muscularity and technique and hitting the back of the net with a precise strike and then putting the finishing touches with a tap-in thanks to Kevin Lasagna’s gift.

Andrea Belotti (6 points): he did not let an early missed penalty ruin his day, as he led the comeback trail in the Sassuolo game with an opportunistic goal and an acrobatic finishing, keeping Torino’s European hopes alive.

Edin Dzeko (5 points): he was not very flashy on Sunday night, but surely deadly efficient as he interplayed with Florenzi in the first goal and exploited the prairies left by the Bianconeri to bag the second one on a quick counter.
