Serie A 22/23 – Matchday 19 Team of the Week
Vanja Milinkovic-Savic – Torino
Despite the many attacking forays of Fiorentina, the giant Serbian was able to keep them at bay and he earned a clean sheet on the road.
Giovanni Di Lorenzo – Napoli
It was another effective display from the Partenopei captain, who won 10 out of 11 duels and scored the first goal just before half-time.
Nicolo Casale – Lazio
Solid in defence, and had the highest passing rate against AC Milan, completing 95% percent of his passes.
Gian Marco Ferrari – Sassuolo
Scored the opening goal in the draw against Monza and made eight clearances.
Adam Marusic – Lazio
A fine game from the Montenegro international at right-back. Had a successful completion rate of 93% and was heavily involved in the second Biancocelesti goal.
Tommaso Baldanzi – Empoli
The Empoli youth academy graduate came on for Nicolo Cambiaghi in the second half and then scored the only goal against Inter after being on the pitch for just two minutes. Only with one of his passes did he fail to find a teammate.
Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa – Napoli
A majestic performance from the Cameroon international in the Partenopei midfield. Completed three out of four dribbles, made 74 successful passes with a completion rate of 92%, and supplied an assist for Giovanni Di Lorenzo.
Angel Di Maria – Juventus
The Argentinian veteran had a hand in all three Bianconeri goals. He scored the equaliser from the penalty spot, was involved in the build-up for the second goal, and his free-kick allowed Danilo to score the third.
Ademola Lookman – Atalanta
The Nigeria international was inspirational for La Dea, scoring twice and assisting for Joakim Maehle. Lookman was also named our Serie A Player of the Week for Matchday 19.
Paulo Dybala – Roma
It was another inspiring performance from the Argentine, who set up both goals for the Giallorossi in the victory away to Spezia.
Mattia Zaccagni – Lazio
The left-winger was involved in three of the Biancocelesti’s four goals. He supplied the assist for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to score the opener, he then scored the second, and he was involved in the build-up for Felipe Anderson to score the sealer.
