Serie A gameweek 27 results:

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Serie A Team of the Week for gameweek 27 The formation used for this team is 4-1-2-1-2.

Goalkeeper: Antonio Mirante (Roma)

The Italian goalkeeper was at his very best as he helped Roma to a crucial 2-1 win over Sampdoria.

Antonio Mirante made the highest number of saves in the game (9) and kept Roma in the match in which they trailed by an early goal by Manolo Gabbiadini.

The win means Roma keep the pressure on Atalanta for a Champions League spot.


Right-back: Vincent Laurini (Parma)

The French footballer of Italian descent was a nuisance for Genoa’s defence throughout the game as Parma ran out 4-1 winners.

Vincent Laurini, whose season has been hampered by injuries and lack of game time, provided two assists against Genoa, in addition to providing stability to his side’s defence.

Centre-back: Jose Luis Palomino (Atalanta)

The centre-back started the game shakily just like the entire Atalanta team as Lazio quickly grabbed a 2-0 lead.

However, the game changed before half time as Atalanta pulled one back before equalising in the 66th minute, with the Argentine defender scoring the winner in the 80th winner in a miraculous comeback.

It was Jose Luis Palomino’s first goal of the season and it couldn’t have come at a more crucial juncture as Atlanta consolidate fourth spot in Serie A.


Centre-back: German Pezzella (Fiorentina)

The Fiorentina centre-back joins his fellow countryman, Jose Luis Palomino at the centre of the defence.

German Pezzella scored the equaliser against a Brescia side, who are destined to be relegated, as Fiorentina managed a hard-fought 1-1 draw.

In addition to scoring the goal, he also managed to make the highest number of interceptions for his team in the game (2).


Left-back: Robin Gosens (Atalanta)

Robin Gosens is a versatile player who can be deployed as a midfielder or a left-back.

The German is a key player for Atalanta, who have scored 77 goals in Serie A this season, the highest in the division.

The attacking full-back scored the goal which started the comeback for Atlanta, who were 2-0 down against Lazio.

He also performed his defensive duty by making the second-highest number of tackles for his team in the game (1).


Defensive midfielder: Borja Valero (Inter Milan)

The veteran midfielder had a sublime game for Inter Milan and must have thought that he has given his side the full three points after scoring an 86th-minute goal, only for the Nerazzurri to concede in the 90th minute as the match with Sassuolo ended in a 3-3 draw.

Apart from his goal, Borja Valero also managed the highest number of passes in the game (52) and made the second-highest number of interceptions (2).


Central midfielder: Sergej-Milinkovic Savic (Lazio)

The Serbian midfield enforcer started the game brightly and scored a belter of a goal from 25 yards out in the 11th minute to give Lazio a 2-0 lead before everything fell apart for the Rome-based club in a game in which they needed three points to be on the toes of Juventus.

Sergej-Milinkovic Savic also managed the highest number of take-ons for his team in the game (2).


Central midfielder: Ruslan Malinovskiy (Atalanta)

The Ukrainian midfielder, who joined Atalanta from Genk last summer, definitely had his best game of the campaign.

Ruslan Malinovskiy scored a stunning goal to make it 2-2 before Atalanta nicked another to win against Lazio 3-2.

The 27-year-old started on the right flank behind Duvan Zapata, and besides his goal, he also completed 90% of his passes as well as managed the second-highest number of take-ons in the game (2).


Attacking midfielder: Paulo Dybala (Juventus)

The Argentine, who was on the fringes when new manager Mauricio Sarri arrived before the season and was heavily linked with a move away from Juventus last summer, has been in great form of late.

Paulo Dybala, who can play in any position in the front line, scored his eighth Serie A goal of the season as Juventus comfortably beat Bologna 2-0.

The Juventus ace not only scored a goal but also managed to complete the second-highest number of passes in the game (42) and the highest number of take-ons (5).


Striker: Edin Dzeko (Roma)

The Bosnian hitman is one of the most important players for Roma and is very vital to their style of play.

The former Manchester City man rose to the occasion as he scored twice to hand Roma a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Sampdoria.

Edin Dzeko could have scored more as he had as many as five shots on target in the Serie A game.


Striker: Andreas Cornelius (Parma)

Andreas Cornelius, who is on loan at Parma from Atalanta, scored the first hat-trick for the club in their 4-1 win over Genoa.

The Dane was on song as he scored three times with his four shots on target and took his tally to 11 goals in just 20 Serie A games this season.
