Regularly alert and knew when to hold onto the ball or a parry a shot. His save from Federico Chiesa near the end was decisive.
Giovanni Di Lorenzo – Napoli

Kostas Manolas – Napoli (2 apps)
Davide Biraschi – Genoa
Nullified the attacking threats of Theo Hernandez and Ante Rebic on Milan’s left flank and he was vital in the build-up for Francesco Cassata’s goal.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Roma
Provided creative spark for the Giallorossi but he also tracked back and applied pressure. Assisted in one of the Nikola Kalinic goals.
Aaron Ramsey – Juventus
The Welshman is continually showing signs of improvement and he had a fine game in midfield. Scored Juve’s first and provided the assist for Paulo Dybala’s strike.
Francesco Cassata – Genoa
Played an important part in the construction of the Grifone’s attacking play and he also scored the second goal against AC Milan.
Luis Alberto – Lazio (6 apps)
