Pietro Terracciano (7 points): he got the nod in the previous round due to a process of elimination, instead he fully deserved against Inter, stopping the opponents multiple times with great saves and a little help coming from the woodwork and putting together a man-of-the-man performance.
Bruno Peres (8 points): not one but two goals for the Brazilian fullback, who is loving life in a very offensive role in Roma’s newly-hatched scheme and punished SPAL on two occasions with deep cuts in the box and sharp finishes. He is looking like his old Torino self.
Diego Godin (5 points): Inter were one of the few teams securing the clean sheet in the midweek round and the Uruguayan bulwark, while still not at his Atletico peak, has been on a steady rise over the last few appearances.
Rafael Toloi (5 points): the whole Atalanta starting back-line fared well versus Bologna, containing in particular Musa Barrow, and the Brazilian defender stood out a little more than his teammates for his customary contribution to the offense.
Seko Fofana (4 points): after Udinese had resisted for 90 minutes against Juventus, he ripped off a one-man counte for the ages, leaving Alex Sandro and Matthijs De Ligt before finishing with aplomb. A monumental goal in their quest to avoid relegation.
Dejan Kulusevski (4 points): he was simply a brute force off the bench against Napoli, engaged in a mighty duel with Kalidou Koulibaly and bested him at the end, cunningly earning a PK that allowed Parma to end their slide.
Hakan Calhanoglu (4 points): no goals this time for the Turkish maestro, but two more assists, as he set up both Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goals, first with a soft cross, then with a great through ball on a counter, totally redeeming himself for a handball in the box.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (8 points): the Swedish ace returned to the stat-sheet in style against Bologna, bagging two sweet goals, initially on a diving header and then dribbling past the goalie that had come out. Maybe Milan staying put in key roles will convince him to stick around.
Gianluca Lapadula (8 points): he lasted just one half due to his bad ankle, but he was crucial in Lecce’s win as he netted two clinical goals, shaking free for a header on a corner kick and then pouncing on a rebound for a difficult tap-in.
Carles Perez (4 points): he took full advantage of the SPAL game to notch his first goal in the Peninsula and did it with some flair, since he literally whipped the ball past the goalie with a potent lefty cross-shot from the right-hand side of the box.
