Serie A Team of the Week – Round 37


Gianluigi Donnarumma (7 points): the starlet saved Milan once again in the Frosinone game, preventing the opponents from going up in the score by brilliantly parrying away a Camillo Ciano penalty.

Riccardo Gagliolo (5 points): Parma defended very diligently against Fiorentina, holding La Viola scoreless once more. With Bruno Alves on the sidelines, it was up to Gagliolo to lead the back-line and he did not disappoint.

Mattia Bani (5 points): Chievo finally managed to stop and he and his teammate Bostjan Cesar did a fine job in stymieing Fabio Quagliarella and company in Sunday’s lunch match.  

Rogerio (5 points): he is usually more known from his offensive contribution, but against Roma he focused on the other end with great returns, since he rendered harmless both Cengiz Under and Justin Kluivert that gravitated near his flank.

Fabian Ruiz (10 points): he had not put his name in the stat sheet in two months, but he put on a show in the Inter clash, where he set up Piotr Zielinski’s piledriver, punched one home on a square ball and then burned Samir Handanovic on the near post with a wicked strike.

Suso (6 points): he bagged an absolute gem of a free kick to seal the deal against Frosinone, as his deadly accurate shot kissed the bar before bouncing past the goal-line. He is often maligned, but the numbers back him up.

Dries Mertens (6 points): it is uncanny how he manages to do so much damage on headers despite his size, but he repeated himself in such fashion versus one of the biggest defenses, Inter’s one, continuing his climb among Napoli’s all-time scorers, which will go on next season since he is set to stay, as announced by Carlo Ancelotti.

Rodrigo De Paul (5 points): he picked up all his bonus points by setting up teammates, since he provided three assists, which was unprecedented this season. The long free kick that teed up Samir was simply filthy and he also found Stefano Okaka twice on corner kicks.

Stefano Okaka (8 points): four goals in the last two rounds for the Italian giant striker, who propelled Udinese in the late push to avoid relegation in two winnable games, versus Frosinone and SPAL. In this case, he found the target twice with headers on corner kicks.

Mattia Destro (5 points): he partecipated in two Bologna’s close-range goals against Lazio, poking one home on a pinpoint Rodrigo Palacio feed and assisting Riccardo Orsolini’s volley with a perhaps involutary flick-on.

Leonardo Pavoletti (4 points): he bagged a masterful goal against his former team, superbly settling a long ball and accommodating it for a thunderous half volley. He has scored in three rounds in a row, totaling 15 goal in a very rewarding season.
