Juventus surprisingly lost 1-0 to Benevento, Napoli scored twice without reply against Roma, Lazio only needed the one goal to defeat Udinese, and Atalanta won 2-0 against Hellas Verona.
Elsewhere, Sampdoria earned a 1-0 win against Torino, Spezia and Genoa won 2-1 against Cagliari and Parma respectively, and Bologna came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 against Crotone.
Here is the Team of the Week for Round 28 of the 2020/21 Serie A season, which is deployed in the usual 3-4-3 formation. Let us know your thoughts!
Lorenzo Montipo – Benevento
The Stregoni earned a remarkable victory away to Juventus and their goalkeeper was one of the main protagonists with an incredible number of saves.
Simon Kjaer – AC Milan (2 Team of the Week appearances)
A decent performance in defence, but he made an unlikely yet pleasant contribution offensively, providing assists for both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Brahim Diaz.
Cristian Romero – Atalanta (4 apps)
La Dea tactician switched to a back four formation and the Argentinian centre-back was the standout in defence. Marshalled the defence well and also contributed offensively.
Kalidou Koulibaly – Napoli (4 apps)
A sturdy performance in defence the Senegalese international, who limited the attacking threats from the likes of Pedro and Edin Dzeko throughout the game.
Antonio Candreva – Sampdoria (3 apps)
Put in a solid shift on the right-wing, and he scored the winning goal, finishing off a magnificent team move with a low strike.
Giulio Maggiore – Spezia
Remained ever-present in the Aquilotti midfield and scored their second goal against Cagliari.
Roberto Soriano – Bologna (3 apps)
Had his moments in the first half but he was far more influential in the second. Often played a major part in the Felsinei’s attacking play.
Adam Marusic – Lazio (4 apps)
Impressed with his attacking play on the left flank and he found the back of the net with a curling strike for the solitary goal of the game.
Duvan Zapata – Atalanta (3 apps)
The Hellas Verona could not contain the giant Colombian striker. Scored in the first half with a delicate finish and he probably should have had another two more.
Gianluca Scamacca – Genoa
Came on in the second half against Parma and won the game for the Grifone with a brace. The winner was the clear standout, which was a fantastic strike from outside of the penalty area.
Dries Mertens – Napoli (2 apps)
The Belgian veteran might not have been heavily involved in the play but he made a clear impact on the scoresheet. Scored twice in the first half; the first was a superb free-kick and the other one completed a great team move.
