Serie A 22/23 – Matchday 9 Team of the Week
Guglielmo Vicario – Empoli
Although Torino’s equaliser did come from a failed clearance from the Empoli goalkeeper, Vicario made several impressive saves to hold the Granata at bay for a long time.
Giovanni Di Lorenzo – Napoli
Created four chances during the match, ranking first in that category against Cremonese, had a successful passing rate of 95%, and he supplied the cross for Mathias Olivera to score the sealer.
Chris Smalling – Roma
A fine display in defence from the Englishman and he gave the Giallorossi an early lead against Lecce.
Fikayo Tomori – AC Milan
Produced an exemplary performance in defence against Juventus and he also opened the scoring before the break.
Carlos Augusto – Monza
The Brazilian wing-back was a constant threat on the left flank against Spezia. Scored the first goal of the game for the Brianzoli and he nearly added another one.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – Lazio
It was another superb performance in the midfield from the Serbian, who supplied two assists in the victory against Fiorentina. His precise cross found Mattia Zaccagni for the second goal and his clever back heel found Ciro Immobile for the sealer.
Sasa Lukic – Torino
Dictated the play in the Granata midfield and he scored a well-deserved equaliser in the draw against Empoli.
Brahim Diaz – AC Milan
Provided some moments of brilliance in the win against Juventus, none better than his solo run to seal the three points for the Rossoneri.
Ciro Immobile – Lazio
The Italian striker supplied an assist for Luis Alberto, and then he scored the fourth and final goal of the game. His goal took his Serie A tally to 188 goals, drawing level with league greats Alessandro Del Piero, Giuseppe Signori, and Alberto Gilardino.
Edin Dzeko – Inter
It was an important brace for the Bosnian veteran from both a team and an individual perspective. His goals secured the victory against Sassuolo, and he scored the 100th and 101st goals of his Serie A career.
Mattia Zaccagni – Lazio
Provided plenty of flair on the left-wing for the Biancocelesti. His corner was headed into the net by Matias Vecino for the first goal against Fiorentina and then he scored the second.
