While the race for European places is still on, things are also heating up at the bottom of the table as the relegation scramble gathers pace.

Serie A gameweek 31 results:

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Serie A Team of the Week for gameweek 31. The formation used for this team is 4-2-4.

Goalkeeper: Bartlomiej Dragowski (Fiorentina)

The Polish Under-21 international was brilliant between the sticks as he helped his team to a crucial point against Cagliari. Bartlomiej Dragowski kept a clean sheet, made the highest number of saves (6) and recoveries (12) in the game, which ended 0-0.


Right-back: Antonio Candreva(Inter Milan)

Antonio Candreva, who is primarily a winger, is now the first choice right-back for Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan team. The Italian international has taken his change of role in an emphatic way and performed beyond expectations this season. The former Lazio man was exceptional in the 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona as he scored a goal and provided an assist.


Centre-back: Fabio Lucioni (Lecce)

Fabio Lucioni, who has played most of his football in Serie B, had the moment of his life when he scored the winning goal against title-chasing Lazio. The central defender was also at the top of his game defensively in the 2-1 win, as he made the highest number of interceptions in the match (2).


Centre-back: Rafael Toloi (Atalanta)

The Brazilian centre-back is one of the standout players for Atalanta, who have surprised everyone with their attacking style of play. Rafael Toloi had a great game in the 2-0 win over Sampdoria as he helped keep a clean sheet, scored the opening goal of the contest, and managed the highest number of passes (51) and blocks (1) in the game.


Left-back: Theo Hernandez (AC Milan)

Theo Hernandez was emphatic against defending Serie A champions, Juventus as AC Milan came back from a 2-0 deficit to win the game 4-2. The former Real Madrid left-back made the highest number of tackles (3) and completed the second-highest number of take-ons (3) in the high-voltage fixture.


Central midfielder: Franck Kessie (AC Milan)

Franck Kessie had a game to remember against a dominant Juventus side as his midfield display was the key to AC Milan’s stunning 4-2 comeback victory over the Old Lady. The Ivory Coast international was at his very best as he scored a goal, managed the highest number of passes (61) and the second-highest number of tackles in the game (2). It was a complete midfield performance from the former Atalanta man.


Central midfielder: Rodrigo De Paul (Udinese)

Rodrigo De Paul is one of the most underrated players in Serie A because of the team he plays for. The Argentine international is versatile and can play as a winger or a midfielder. The Udinese star was on song as Le Zebrette thrashed SPAL 3-0, with De Paul scoring the opening goal of the game.


Right-wing: Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo)

Domenico Berardi had a good all-round game as Sassuolo edged out Bologna 2-1. The Italian international scored a first-half goal and also managed the third-highest number of recoveries in the game (7) – he was effective at both ends of the pitch.


Left-wing: Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Roma)

The on-loan player from Arsenal had his best game in Roma colours as he scored a goal and provided an assist in his side’s 2-1 comeback victory over Parma. The former Borussia Dortmund man is having one of his best seasons in front of goal, despite playing just half the games. Henrikh Mkhitaryan has scored eight goals and provided four assists in just 18 Serie A appearances this season.


Striker: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (AC Milan)

The Swedish legend tormented his former side and helped AC Milan to a massive 4-2 victory over Juventus to keep the Rossoneri in the hunt for a Europa League finish. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a penalty and provided an assist as AC Milan shocked Juventus, who were looking to extend their lead at the top of the table to 10 points.


Striker: Ante Rebic (AC Milan)

The on-loan striker from Eintracht Frankfurt was in great form as his hold-up play and runs behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic kept the Juventus defence on their toes. Ante Rebic scored a goal and provided an assist to help AC Milan to a 4-2 win after being 2-0 down in a classic Serie A game.
