As gameweek 28 of the Serie A came to an end, Juventus remained in control of the title race with a four-point lead over second-placed Lazio.
Inter Milan, who occupy third place on the table, staged a late comeback against Parma to just about remain in the title picture.
Atalanta are favourites to secure the fourth and final Champions League spot, while the likes of Roma, Napoli and AC Milan are fighting for the Europa League berths.
At the other end of the table, things are not looking good for Brescia and SPAL, with Lecce, Sampdoria, Genoa, and Udinese also firmly in the relegation scramble.
Serie A gameweek 28 results:
Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Serie A Team of the Week for gameweek 28. The formation used for this team is 4-2-4.
Goalkeeper: Juan Musso (Udinese)
The selection of Juan Musso might surprise many as his side, Udinese lost 3-2 to Atalanta, but the Argentine goalkeeper was the reason Le Zebrette conceded just three goals and not five or six.
The shot-stopper made the highest number of saves (9) and the second-highest number of recoveries (7) in the game.
The form of Musso in the upcoming matches might play a key role in Udinese avoiding the drop, with the club currently being just two points clear of the relegation zone.
Right-back: Hans Hateboer (Atalanta)
The attacking right wing-back is one of the reasons behind Atalanta‘s recent rise, and in a game where he couldn’t provide much threat going forward, he did his defensive duty with good effect. Hans Hateboer made the highest number of tackles in the game for his team (2), and also had a passing accuracy of over 80% as Atalanta edged out Udinese 3-2.
Centre-back: Matthijs de Ligt (Juventus)
The Dutch international is one of the best young defenders in the world at the moment, and after a slow start to life in Serie A, he is finally making his presence felt.
Against Lecce, Matthijs de Ligt scored a late goal and helped Juventus keep a clean sheet.
He also managed the third-highest number of passes (62) and the second-highest number of recoveries (7) in the game, which the league leaders comfortably won by a 4-0 margin.
Centre-back: Alessio Romagnoli (AC Milan)
Being the captain of an iconic club like AC Milan adds immense pressure to any player but so far, Alessio Romagnoli has stayed true to his task.
The Italian international has been a rock at the back for the fallen Italian giants as he looks to drive them to the Europa League next season.
The centre-back helped keep a clean sheet and managed the highest number of passes in the game (86), as Milan secured a morale-boosting 2-0 win over fellow Europa League hopefuls, Roma.
Left-back: Darko Lazovic (Hellas Verona)
The Serbian international, who joined Hellas Verona from Genoa last summer, scored a goal and set up another as his side played an entertaining 3-3 draw with Sassuolo.
Darko Lazovic has played all 28 of Verona’s Serie A fixtures this season, netting twice and providing six assists.
Central midfielder: Radja Nainggolan (Cagliari)
The Italian has rediscovered his touch since joining Cagliari from Inter Milan last summer.
Radja Nainggolan was in fine form and scored his sixth Serie A goal of the season as Cagliari beat Torino 4-2.
Central midfielder: Luis Alberto (Lazio)
One of the most underrated players in Serie A, Luis Alberto has been vital to Lazio’s title challenge this season.
The former Liverpool man ran the show against Fiorentina, who took a shock first-half lead.
Alberto scored the winner in the 82nd minute to help Lazio pip Fiorentina 2-1 and remain firmly in the title race.
Left-wing: Jeremie Boga (Sassuolo)
The Ivory Coast international has shown immense potential to be a top player in the coming years and he proved his worth once again with a brace in the 3-3 draw against Hellas Verona.
Jeremie Boga has now scored 10 goals in Serie A this season, in addition to providing four assists in 27 games.
Right-wing: Jose Callejon (Napoli)
The rise of Napoli under Gennaro Gattuso is there for everybody to see, and so is the form of Jose Callejon.
The Spanish winger was at his sublime best as his goal helped Napoli to take a 2-1 lead before half-time against SPAL, with his side ultimately winning the contest 3-1.
Napoli are now just a place and three points adrift of fifth-placed Roma, who occupy the automatic Europa League qualification spot.
Striker: Joao Pedro (Cagliari)
Joao Pedro has been one of the top strikers in Serie A this season and has already scored 17 league goals in the ongoing campaign.
The Brazilian was a constant menace to Torino’s defence as he scored once and set up another, with Cagliari winning the game 4-2.
Striker: Luis Muriel (Atalanta)
The former Fiorentina man, who came on as a second-half substitute against Udinese, scored a brace, including the winner, as Atalanta secured a vital 3-2 victory in their bid to cement their spot in the top four.
Despite mostly playing as a second fiddle to Duvan Zapata, Luis Muriel has still managed to score 15 goals in Serie A this season.
