Juventus and Napoli keep trading blow for blow as they won again, with Fiorentina and Lazio this week’s victims.
Inter got their first win in eight games, thus preventing a record-breaking winless streak. Roma beat Benevento, and AC Milan scored four away from home to climb up the table.
Our Team of the Week will see a 3-4-3 formation deployed. Let us know your thoughts!
Gianluigi Buffon – Juventus (3 Team of the Week appearances)
Still to concede, with Juventus as a whole, in 2018, Buffon made a couple of decisive saves against Fiorentina, as well as directing his defence with the usual charisma.
Mario Rui – Napoli
At points it seemed like he was an added striker, and despite his shot being deflected in by Zielinski, he basically scored, helping Napoli to a triumphant win.
Nicolas N’Koulou – Torino (4 apps)
Another header, another goal and another man of the match performance for one of the most consistent centre backs in Serie A.
Leandro Castan – Cagliari (2 apps)
Had Khouma Babacar in his pocket until he got subbed by Alessandro Matri, then it was Matri who was annihilated. Another defensively perfect performance.
Yann Karamoh – Inter
First start for Inter and what a start it was: started off the action leading to Eder’s goal, then went solo for the lovely second that gave the three points to the Nerazzurri.
Piotr Zielinski – Napoli (4 apps)
Pure class at the heart of Napoli, being the motor of the Partenopei’s perfect second half, with the icing on the cake of a goal and an assist.
Lucas Biglia – AC Milan
He is finally back to his best, finally back to being the player that used to light up Lazio’s midfield. And he scored his first Rossoneri goal.
Federico Bernardeschi – Juventus (4 apps)
What a night for the former Fiorentina man. The boos, the insults, the goal to give Juventus the lead. The perfect return to the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Cengiz Under – Roma (2 apps)
It’s his time to shine: after not finding any assists or goals in his first 14 appearances, all of a sudden the decisive goal against Verona, and then his first brace with the Giallorossi against Benevento, as well as the assist for Edin Dzeko’s winning goal.
Patrick Cutrone – AC Milan (3 apps)
His first Serie A brace to first break the deadlock, then double the Rossoneri’s lead to pave the way for a crucial win. The new Pippo Inzaghi?
Andrea Belotti – Torino (2 apps)
The Gallo is back, scoring 57 days after his last goal and winning 12 tackles, more than anyone against Udinese. A complete, well-rounded, Belotti-esque performance.
