Serie A 22/23 – Matchday 21 Team of the Week
Andrea Consigli – Sassuolo
Although he was not required to make too many saves, he knew when to come off his line, and he was effective in his ball distribution.

He was a dominant figure on the right flank against Udinese, completing five dribbles and supplying the cross for Yann Karamoh.

Stefan Posch – Bologna
The Austrian defender impressed defensively with four clearances and four interceptions, and he also scored the winning goal against Fiorentina.
Nicolo Barella – Inter
AC Milan could not catch up with the Italy international and his skill on the ball was just as impressive as his stamina.
