Pietro Terracciano (7 points): offenses won this round as only one team managed to keep a clean sheet, Fiorentina, and therefore their second-string goalie was the only one taking home bonuses in his position.
Pol Lirola (5 points): la Viola had a pretty easy time in taming the Granata, but the Spaniard was also a factor on the final third galloping up and down the left flank, so he gets the token spot representing the whole back-line.
Davide Calabria (4 points): he had been losing steam in the duel with Andrea Conti, but he made the most of his start against Bologna by scoring very late with a great sprint and a lethal combination with a teammate in the box.
Elseid Hysaj (2 points): the right-back filled in for Giovanni Di Lorenzo and provided the best impression of the more touted teammate, setting up Arkadiusz Milik’s sliding finish with a very accurate low-driven cross for his second assist of the season.
Jaromir Zmrhal (8 points): Brescia do not have much of a chance to avoid the drop at this point, but at least their rookies are getting some quality reps. Zmrhal led the comeback against SPAL with two lovely lefty finishes, one from close range and the other more curled from the right-hand portion of the box.
Hakan Calhanoglu (6 points): another goal+assist performance for the Turk fantasista, who bagged one from outside the box in typically remarkable fashion and slipped it to Ismael Bennacer prior to his goal.
Joao Pedro (4 points): he displayed all his and Cagliari’s heart versus Sassuolo as, down to ten men and versus a high-octane opponent, they still managed to equalize thanks to a clinical first-touch shoot by the Brazilian striker in the second half on a terrific counter led by Marko Rog.
Franck Ribery (4 points): he did not score but he still dominated the Torino game, where he ended up with just an assist, with a perfect through ball for Patrick Cutrone, but could have easily notched a couple with his inspired passing and dribbling.
Cristiano Ronaldo (8 points): the implacable Juventus start assembled a brace in the clash with Lazio, keeping his amplomb on another clutch PK and then nudging it in the empty net on a great two vs zero counter with Paulo Dybala.
Fabio Quagliarella (6 points): the veteran is rounding into shape and netted another beautiful goal with a little chip over the goalie, although a deflection might have helped him, and then, from the very same spot, he found Federico Bonazzoli with a slide-rule pass for the game-winner.
Edin Dzeko (4 points): he did not hit the net but still had a massive impact the Inter clash as he set up both goals, first with timely ball for Leonardo Spinazzola, then showing great determination in the box, shielding and bamboozling multiple defenders, but Henrikh Mkhitaryan literally stole his finish.
