Defensively sound and made the difference with an incredible leap to score the winning goal against Cagliari.

The Belgian international demonstrated the best qualities of a targetman up front. Held up the ball, passed the ball to running teammates, and used his physique to overwhelm opponents. Created the first goal for Lautaro Martinez and then scored the third.

Lautaro Martinez – Inter (3 apps)

The Argentine found his shooting boots in one of the most important matches of the season. Scored the Nerazzurri’s first two goals and he should have had at least one more. He also impressed with his ability to track back and help his teammates defensively.
