Fikayo Tomori – AC Milan
The Rossoneri struggled to get into the game and Fiorentina created numerous chances to score. However, Tomori made some vital interventions to prevent the Gigliati from leaving Milan with any points.
Jhon Lucumi – Bologna
Although he was solid defensively, his ability on the ball stood out more. The Colombian centre-back had a successful passing rate of 93% and assisted for Michel Aebischer.
Carlos Augusto – Monza
The Brazilian wing-back was directly involved in two out of three Brianzoli goals against Salernitana. Opened the scoring from close range and then assisted for Dany Mota.
