Juventus beat AC Milan and made the most of Napoli’s draw at Sassuolo, whilst Inter and Lazio took advantage of Roma’s draw.
At the bottom, all teams lost but SPAL who continue to hope for another Serie A season.
Our Team of the Week will see a 3-4-3 formation deployed. Let us know your thoughts!
Antonio Santurro – Bologna
His Serie A debut couldn’t have been any better. All round solid performance, and at least three vital saves.
Francesco Acerbi – Sassuolo
It is never an easy game against the Napoli attack, but he never backed down, responded perfectly and helped the Neroverdi to the draw.
Leonardo Bonucci – AC Milan
That celebration. In that Stadium. To silence the fans who had booed him until then. A night to remember, despite the loss.
Andrea Masiello – Atalanta
Solid at the back, lethal up front. One of La Dea’s secret weapons.
Juan Cuadrado – Juventus (2 apps)
Back with a bang: the header against AC Milan could be the decisive goal in the Scudetto race.
Sami Khedira – Juventus (4 apps)
When he switched on, so did Juve: the assist for Cuadrado’s winner and personal glory with the Bianconeri’s 3-1 goal.
Manuel Lazzari – SPAL (2 apps)
His lovely goal gave SPAL a point on a day when all other teams at the bottom lost. Fundamental oxygen.
Federico Chiesa – Fiorentina (4 apps)
Quality and strength. Got Marco Capuano sent off, then smashed home the beauty that was Fiorentina’s second.
Ciro Immobile – Lazio (10 apps)
Golden Shoe material for Ciro, who put two past Benevento and helped Lazio to a necessary victory.
Mauro Icardi – Inter (9 apps)
Already 24 goals scored and the same old rule: Inter need him to win games.
Ivan Perisic – Inter (5 apps)
He’s back, finally, and Inter needed this so much. The combination with Icardi back to its best, and he’s also once again on the scoresheet.
