Serie A gameweek 29 results:
Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Serie A Team of the Week for gameweek 29. The formation used for this team is 4-2-4.
Goalkeeper: Pierluigi Gollini (Atalanta)
Pierluigi Gollini is a vital member of Atalanta, who have surprised everyone with their free-flowing football for the past two seasons.
The shot-stopper was in superb form as he single-handedly kept a clean sheet against a potent Napoli side and helped his team to a 2-0 win.
Pierluigi Gollini made the highest number of saves (7) and managed the second-highest number of recoveries (10) in the game.
Right-back: Ashley Young (Inter Milan)
The England international has turned out to be a decent signing for Inter Milan since joining from Manchester United in January.
Ashley Young, who is very versatile and can play either as a left-back or a right-back, scored a brilliant goal and provided one assist in the Serie A giants’ 6-0 rout of Bresica.
Centre-back: Danilo D’Ambrosio (Inter Milan)
Danilo D’Ambrosio remains one of the most valuable players for Inter Milan, who have several versatile defensive players.
The Italian international can play in any position in the backline and started against Brescia as a centre-back.
D’Ambrosio scored a goal, helped his side keep a clean sheet and managed the second-highest number of passes in the game (49) as Inter thrashed Brescia 6-0.
Centre-back: Rafael Toloi (Atalanta)
The former Brazil Under-20 international had a great game in Atalanta’s 2-0 win over Napoli as he assisted Robin Gosens for the second goal, helped keep a clean sheet and also managed the highest number of blocks in the match (1).
Left-back: Robin Gosens (Atalanta)
One of the best left wing-backs in the game currently, the German is real dynamite going forward. Robin Gosens scored Atalanta’s second goal against Napoli which literally put the game to bed.
Besides the goal, the 25-year-old also helped keep a clean sheet and made the highest number of tackles in the game (2) with 100% accuracy.
Central midfielder: Gaston Ramirez (Sampdoria)
Gaston Ramirez has turned his career 360 degrees since joining Sampdoria from Middlesbrough in the summer of 2017.
The Uruguay international, who has been a vital cog in the Blucerchiati’s setup, netted a brace in Sampdoria’s crucial 2-1 win Lecce. The win kept Sampdoria just above the relegation zone.
Central midfielder: Marco Parolo (Lazio)
Marco Parolo stepped up when Lazio needed him the most. The Italian international, who has been a bit-part player this season, scored the winning goal against Torino to keep Lazio in the title race.
The former Parma midfielder had a solid game and pounced on the opportunity provided to him by mercurial striker Ciro Immobile as the Eagles won 2-1.
Right-wing: Alexis Sanchez (Inter Milan)
The on-loan Manchester United player showed glimpses of returning to form after he was given a rare start by Inter manager Antonio Conte against Brescia.
Alexis Sanchez, who had a torrid time at Old Trafford after joining from rivals, Arsenal, mesmerised everyone with his electric pace and sublime link-up play as he scored a goal and provided two assists in the 6-0 rout of Brescia.
Left-winger: Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
Cristiano Ronaldo is a prime example of ageing like a fine wine. The Portuguese maestro, who had a slow start after the restart, was back to doing what he does best – scoring sublime goals.
The 35-year-old struck from just outside the box after making a brilliant run from midfield as Juventus downed Genoa 3-1 to remain four points clear at the top of the Serie A table.
Ronaldo has now scored 24 league goals this season and is just five behind Lazio’s Ciro Immobile in the Serie A Golden Boot race.
Striker: Paulo Dybala (Juventus)
A player who was on brink of leaving the club last summer is now in complete charge of guiding Juventus to another Serie A title with his sublime form.
Paulo Dybala has thrived since being given a striker’s role by Maurizio Sarri. The former Palermo man scored a goal and provided an assist as Juventus comfortably won 3-1 against Genoa.
Striker: Grégoire Defrel (Sassuolo)
The on-loan striker from Roma had his best game of the season as scored a brace and helped Sassuolo to a comfortable 3-1 win over Fiorentina.
Grégoire Defrel, who has struggled with injuries in the present campaign, has scored three goals and provided as many assists in 16 Serie A games.
