Andrea BELOTTI (G 7; C 7; T 8) Torino 1-0 Udinese
A goal filled with desire, strength and determination broke the Granata forward’s drought in front of goal and secured a precious three points in a strong performance from his side. He also got close to a second, which was “ruined” by an excellent Musso standing in his path. An inexhaustible engine up top and a constant nuisance for the defence, a fundamental player for his team.
Salvatore SIRIGU (G 7; C 7; T 8) Torino 1-0 Udinese
Always one to bounce straight back up to his feet, even when his side’s on the ropes. The Torino shotstopper’s saves to keep out De Maio and Fofana highlighted how important he is between the sticks. There are few goalkeepers as reliable as this man, and it seems his performances are always worthy of praise.
Federico BERNARDESCHI (G 7; C 7; T 7) Bologna 0-2 Juventus
A big contribution from the Tuscan midfielder as he was crucial in Juventus’ victory, providing a precious and delightful assist for Dybala’s goal to seal the win. His role in the away side’s play was truly constant, as he played a decisive and brilliant part on Monday night at the Dall’Ara.
Leonardo BONUCCI (G 7; C 7; T 7) Bologna 0-2 Juventus
His partnership with the young De Ligt is now in full flow. Perfect timing in his challenges and precise in starting play from the back, he was key in shutting out the Rossoblù as he led from the back with authority and without nerves. The performance of a true leader.
Giacomo BONAVENTURA (G 7; C 7; T 7) Lecce 1-4 AC Milan
A big goal to seal the win at an important point of the match. A constant presence at the heart of the Rossoneri’s play, Bonaventura’s usual quality was on show for all to see. The goal showed a killer instinct to get to the ball first, a sign of a player fully focused despite any rumours over his future.
Luigi SEPE (G 7; C 7; T 7) Genoa 1-4 Parma
A great season so far for the Parma man in net, as he’s picked up right where he left off before the break with some truly decisive contributions for his side. In the space of just a few days, he saved a penalty against Belotti and then another one against Criscito. A true cornerstone of D’Aversa’s tactical plans.
