Serie A 22/23 – Matchday 17 Team of the Week
Guillermo Ochoa – Salernitana
The Mexican veteran has impressed in his handful of appearances for the Granata so far and he made an abundance of fantastic saves against Torino.
Danilo – Juventus
An impressive performance defensively and offensively from the Brazilian against Udinese. Made five clearances, had a successful passing rate of 91%, won three out of four aerial duels, and he scored the winning goal.
Pierre Kalulu – AC Milan
Perhaps he could have done better on Roma’s equaliser, but he was superb throughout the majority of the match. Scored the opening goal for the Rossoneri, completed the most passes for the game with 76, made three blocks, and two interceptions.
Luca Caldirola – Monza
Replaced Marlon at half-time and helped tighten things in the Brianzoli defence. He also put enough pressure on Inter wing-back Denzel Dumfries to force an own goal in the dying minutes of the game.
Mario Rui – Napoli
It was another effective shift the from the Partenopei left-back, who managed to provide the assist for Victor Osimhen’s goal against Sampdoria.
Patrick Ciurria – Monza
Played a decisive role in the draw against Inter, scoring the first goal and sending the cross into the box for the second one.
Lorenzo Pellegrini – Roma
Although he was not overly influential for the majority of the game, the Giallorossi stood up in the latter stages of the match. He supplied the corner which Roger Ibanez headed in and he delivered the free-kick that resulted in the equalier against AC Milan.
Darko Lazovic – Hellas Verona
The Gialloblu got a vital victory against fellow relegation battlers Cremonese and the versatile Serbian made the difference with both goals for the Veronese side.
Felipe Anderson – Lazio
Constantly involved in the Aquile’s attacking moves, the Brazilian opened the scoring albeit with the aid of a deflection off Empoli striker Francesco Caputo and he was involved in the second Biancocelesti goal, scored by Mattia Zaccagni.
Victor Osimhen – Napoli
The Nigerian striker was involved in some key plays against Sampdoria. He opened the scoring and drew the foul that got Tomas Rincon sent off in the first half, and he was involved in the build-up which led to the Partenopei’s second penalty.
Jeremie Boga – Atalanta
Came on for Mario Pasalic and turned the game around for La Dea in the second half with two assists.
