Thomas Strakosha (7 points): he was under heavy fire in the second half in Udine, and saved by the post on a late strike by Rodrigo De Paul, but managed to fend for himself, bouncing back after a pair of costly howlers.
Cristiano Biraghi (10 points): he was instrumental in Inter’s little second half push to breeze past SPAL as he found the target with a right-footed strike from just outside the box and perfectly teed up Alexis Sanchez for a tap-in with a sharp cross.
Bremer (9 points): he missed a sitter on a corner kick, but quickly redeemed himself on a replay of the same action, putting past the goalie a thumping header this time. Genoa did not get much going offensively.
Sebastien De Maio (5 points): even if Lazio are no longer breathing fire offensively, stymieing them is still no easy feat and the Frenchman, who has unseated a pair of teammates in the back, was the busiest and the most noticeable among Udinese defenders on Wednesday.Mario Pasalic (14 points): clearly the best player in this round, as he took full advantage of a depleted lineup to put together a hat-trick against the hapless Brescia. It took him just 90 seconds to break the deadlock by slotting it in the bottom right corner, then he went on to bag two other goals on fairly easy finishes in the second half.
Hakan Calhanoglu (8 points): he willed Milan to victory versus Parma, as he was involved in all three goals, first assisting Franck Kessie and especially Alessio Romagnoli, with a soft free kick, then rifling one home from distance.
Ruslan Malinovskyi (8 points): his recently established reign of terror continues as he found the target with another scorcher, a lefty one in the bottom corner in this case, and he set up Pasalic twice with slide-rule passes in the box.
Jakub Jankto (6 points): as Sampdoria came to life after the resumption, their fantasy contributors have begun to show up as well and Jankto was terrific versus Cagliari, as he linked up twice with Federico Bonazzoli, notching two assists.
Federico Bonazzoli (8 points): he could have been in the Top XI over the week-end as well for the sheer beauty of his bicycle kick versus Udinese. After nudging one home, he scored another beautiful goal late, tracking and somehow hooking a crisp cross in the air and netting it with a clever deflection.
Federico Chiesa (6 points): he was finally impressive against Lecce, as he smashed one though from inside the box and linked up with Patrick Cutrone for the goal that put away the opponents for good.
Andrea Belotti (6 points): he once again propelled Torino, especially in the second half of the potentially pivotal match-up against Genoa. He assisted Sasa Lukic by cunningly toe-poking the ball as he was being tackled and more importantly he fired it in the top corner after a great solo run at the 90th minute, showing off his stamina.
