The best Italians from matchday twelve in the league according to the mediaAll three of this week’s picks were amongst the goals, find out who they were here
Monday, November 11, 2019
Here are the three Italians who earned the highest ratings in the main Italian sports newspapers (La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport).
Francesco CAPUTO (G 7,5; C 7,5; T 8) Sassuolo 3-1 Bologna
Given his high standards, this man’s absence from the score sheet has lasted for far too long. He returned to goalscoring ways in a vital Emilian derby with a brace that marked a clear upturn in his form. His second-half goal at the end of a 40-yard sprint towards the opposition box also proved that Caputo is finally back to full fitness.
Andrea BELOTTI (G 7,5; C 7,5; T 7,5) Brescia 0-4 Torino
Torino had to show a big response to their recent results and they certainly did that with some authority against Brescia on Saturday. Belotti, nicknamed “Il Gallo” or “The Rooster”, converted a fearsome penalty in a performance which once more confirmed the number nine as the backbone of the Turin side. The mixture of physicality, determination and valuable link up play with Mazzarri that he brings to the side is truly priceless.
Fabio PISACANE (G 7,5; C 7,5; T 7,5) Cagliari 5-2 Fiorentina
A goal that could not be more deserved for the Sardinian centre-back who put in yet another stunning performance, continuing Cagliari’s superb start to the season which has shocked all of Italian football.
