Serie A 2019-20: Results and Team of the Week | Gameweek 30

- Advertisement -

As gameweek 30 came to an end in Serie A, Juventus have a hand on the title as both Lazio and Inter Milan lost their respective games against AC Milan and Bologna.

At the other end of the table, although Brescia shocked Europa League-chasing Hellas Verona by beating them 2-0, they still remain in the relegation zone with very little hope of survival.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Serie A Team of the Week for gameweek 30. The formation used for this team is 4-2-4.

Goalkeeper: Lukasz Skorupski (Bologna)

Lukasz Skorupski was at his very best and helped Bologna to a shocking 2-1 victory over Inter Milan. The former Roma goalkeeper made the highest number of saves in the game (5) and also kept out a penalty from Lautaro Martinez to prevent Inter from doubling their advantage before the visitors struck twice late on to snatch a victory at the San Siro.


Right-back: Juan Cuadrado (Juventus)

The versatile Juan Cuadrado can play at any position on the right side of the field. The winger, who was turned into a right-back by former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, has continued playing in the same role under Maurizio Sarri. The Colombian was at his very best in the Turin derby against Torino as he scored a brilliant goal, provided an assist, managed the highest number of passes (62) and the second-highest number of tackles (2) in the Serie A game, which Juventus comfortably won 4-1.


Centre-back: Simon Kjaer (AC Milan)

Simon Kjaer, who joined AC Milan on loan from Sevilla in January, has forged a nice partnership with club captain Alessio Romagnoli at the heart of the Rosonerri’s defence. The Danish international helped keep a clean sheet and managed the second-highest number of passes (65) in the game against title-chasing Lazio, whom AC Milan thrashed 3-0.


Centre-back: Andrea Papetti (Brescia)

Brescia are almost certain to go down to Serie B at the end of the season, but that hasn’t stopped La Leonessa from giving their academy graduates a chance in the first team. Andrea Papetti, who was making just his fifth senior appearance for the club, scored his first goal and kept his first clean sheet as Brescia beat Europa League-chasing Hellas Verona 2-0. The youngster looked assured at the back and met a cross from fellow academy graduate Sandro Tonali to give his side a valuable lead in the game.


Left-back: Mario Rui (Napoli)

Mario Rui is one of the best left-backs in Serie A when he is fit, with the 29-year-old being good at both ends of the field. The Portuguese had a brilliant game in the 2-1 win over Roma as he provided the assist for Napoli’s opening goal, managed the second-highest number of passes (80) and the highest number of interceptions (2) in the match.


Central midfielder: Erick Pulgar (Fiorentina)

The Chilean international, who was signed by Fiorentina from Bologna last summer, is versatile and can play in both midfield and defence. Erick Pulgar had a good game against Parma as he helped his side to a 2-1 win, with the 26-year-old scoring both Fiorentina’s goals from the spot. Pulgar also managed the third-highest number of tackles in the game (1).


Central midfielder: Karol Linetty (Sampdoria)

The Polish international, who has been a vital cog in the Sampdoria team this season, was at his very best as the Blucerchiati thumped SPAL 3-0 to all but confirm the Biancazzurri’s relegation to Serie B. Karol Linetty scored a brace as Sampdoria steered further clear of the relegation zone.


Right-wing: Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo)

Domenico Berardi is a known name in Italian football. The pacy winger has all the attributes to be at a top club but somehow, he has failed to raise his game in the last few years even after earning five caps for Italy. The Sassuolo academy graduate scored a goal and set up another as the Neroverdi registered an emphatic 4-2 victory over Lecce. Berardi has made 25 Serie A appearances so far this campaign, netting 11 times and providing six assists.


Left-wing: Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)

Another week, another Cristiano Ronaldo special. The Portuguese superstar is simply unstoppable as he helped Juventus demolish Torino 4-1 in the Turin derby. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored his first-ever free-kick in Juventus colours and also provided an assist. Ronaldo became the first Juventus player to score 25 Serie A goals in a single season since 1961.


Striker: Paulo Dybala (Juventus)

Paulo Dybala is matching Cristiano Ronaldo goal for goal since the league’s restart. The Argentine international scored another beautiful goal against Torino by cutting three players inside the box as he took his goalscoring tally to 11 in 28 Serie A games this season.


Striker: Musa Barrow (Bologna)

The Gambian international, who was signed by Bologna on loan from Atalanta in January, has been in superb form for his new employers. Musa Barrow scored a late winner in the 2-1 victory over Inter to keep Bologna in the race for a Europa League spot while ending the San Siro outfit’s title aspirations. It was Barrow’s sixth Serie A goal in just 11 appearances for Bologna.
