Serie A 22/23 – Matchday 8 Team of the Week

Wladimiro Falcone – Lecce

Although he conceded the penalty that gave Cremonese the lead, he atoned for that afterwards with a couple of impressive saves.

Giorgio Scalvini – Atalanta

La Dea were able to keep another clean sheet and the Italian starlet was able to limit the attacking threat of Jonathan Ikone on Fiorentina’s right wing.

Chris Smalling – Roma

The Englishman was hardly troubled by the Inter forwards and he scored the winner after heading Lorenzo Pellegrini’s free-kick into the net.

Alessio Romagnoli – Lazio

Comfortably distributed the ball out from the back and he scored his first goal for the Biancocelesti with a superb strike in the comprehensive victory against Spezia.

Jaka Bijol – Udinese

After scoring in the victory against Inter before the international break, the Slovenian defender was the hero against Hellas Verona with a header in stoppage time.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – Lazio

Played with vivaciousness and confidence in the midfield and he scored twice in the second half against Spezia.

Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa – Napoli

The Cameroon international had not scored for the Partenopei in Serie A prior to the match against Torino, but he laid the foundations for the Napoli victory with two goals in six-minute spell in the first half.

Stefano Sensi – Monza

Controlled the midfield seamlessly against one of his former clubs, and he sealed the victory against Sampdoria with a strike from just outside of the box.

Armand Lauriente – Sassuolo

The Neroverdi registered one of the biggest wins in their history, and Lauriente played an instrumental role with a goal and an assist.

Dusan Vlahovic – Juventus

In a match which the Bianconeri had well in control, the Serbian striker played his part, supplying an assist for compatriot Filip Kostic and then scoring the second Juve goal with a header.

Rafael Leao – AC Milan

After serving a one-match suspension, the Rossoneri left-winger resumed his duties in style. Provided an assist for Ante Rebic to give Milan the lead, and he sealed the win in stoppage time with a delightful chip.
