A 2-0 win over Hellas Verona allowed Inter to inch closer to the Scudetto, as rivals AC Milan drew 0-0 with Torino and Napoli lost at home 3-2 against Fiorentina.

After losing to the Nerazzurri last weekend, Juventus strengthened their grip on a Champions League qualification place with a 2-1 win at Cagliari, but Atalanta fell further away from European football premier competition. Losing by the same scoreline versus Sassuolo.

At the other end of the table, Genoa suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Lazio and Venezia conceded a last-minute goal to Udinese, that pushes them towards the relegation trapdoor.

Here is the Team of the Week for Round 32 of the 2021/22 Serie A season, which is deployed in the usual 3-4-3 formation. Let us know your thoughts!

Rui Patricio – Roma

The Portuguese custodian made several important saves that allowed the Giallorossi to mount a late comeback win.

Matthjis de Ligt – Juventus

Growing in confidence and stature at the heart of the Old Lady’s defence and popped up with a crucial equaliser on the stroke of half time.

Bremer – Torino

With clubs across Serie A considering a move for the Brazilian, a resolute display against title challenging AC Milan will have only added to his value should he leave the Granata.

Cristiano Biraghi – Fiorentina

Provided the assist for Gonzalez, that set the Viola on the road to victory, and limited the threat of Matteo Politano and Hirving Lozano down his wing.

Ivan Perisic – Inter

The Croatian’s assists could be as important as his experience, as the Nerazzurri fight to retain the Scudetto.

Nico Gonzalez – Fiorentina

Opened the scoring in Naples and continues an impressive first campaign in Serie A.

Tommaso Pobega – Torino

The 22-year-old put in a mature display at the Stadio Olimpico and disrupted the title challenge of parent club Milan.

Hamad Traore – Sassuolo

A double from the talented attacker condemned Atalanta to defeat at the Mapei Stadium, as he becomes an increasingly important player for the Neroverdi.

Marko Arnautovic – Bologna

The former Inter striker has had a relatively quiet return to Serie A, but a brace that secured all three points on Monday night will ensure he takes the headlines.

Ciro Immobile – Lazio

A hat-trick against Genoa is helping the Italian striker forget his World Cup qualification heartache and move him closer to another Capocannoniere crown.

Victor Osimhen – Napoli

The Partenopei may have lost to Fiorentina, but a goal and an assist from the Nigerian highlighted how important he will be to them sustaining a title challenge.
