Serie A gameweek 38 results:

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Serie A Team of the Week for gameweek 38. The formation used for this team is 4-2-4.

Goalkeeper: Juan Musso (Udinese)

Juan Musso displayed a goalkeeping masterclass against Sassuolo as he helped Le Zebrette to a hard fought 1-0 victory at the MAPEI Stadium. He kept a clean sheet, made the highest number of saves (10) and recoveries (13) in the game.


Right-back: Danilo D’Ambrosio (Inter Milan)

Danilo D’Ambrosio had an outstanding game against a strong Atalanta side. The Italy international, who is known for his versatility, started the game as a right-back and scored the opening goal of the game in the very first minute. He also helped keep a clean sheet as Inter Milan defeated Atalanta 2-0 to finish in the second spot.


Centre-back: Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli)

Kalidou Koulibaly had a wonderful outing against Lazio as Napoli managed to secure a 3-1 victory to end their Serie A campaign on a positive note. The central defender from Senegal managed the highest number of passes (73) and the second-highest number of recoveries (7) in the game.


Centre-back: Matteo Gabbia (AC Milan)

Matteo Gabbia was simply superb against Cagliari. The youngster, who has started the last few games for AC Milan in the absence of club captain Alessio Romagnoli, proved his worth by helping his side keep a clean sheet. He also managed the third-highest number of tackles (2) and the second-highest number of interceptions in the game (3), which AC Milan won by a 3-0 margin.


Left-back: Ashley Young (Inter Milan)

Ashley Young has turned out to be a shrewd signing for Inter Milan as the former Manchester United captain can play as a winger, a full-back, or a wing-back. The England international started the game as a left wing-back and provided the assist for the first goal in the very first minute itself. He also scored his fourth goal of the Serie A campaign and helped keep a clean sheet as the Nerazzuri recorded a comfortable 2-0 win.


Central midfielder: Erick Pulgar (Fiorentina)

Erick Pulgar has been in great form since joining Fiorentina from Bologna last summer. The Chilean international was simply superb against already-relegated SPAL team as he scored his seventh Serie A goal of the campaign and provided his sixth assist of the season in a 3-1 win.


Central midfielder: Fabian Ruiz (Napoli)

Fabian Ruiz is one of the best midfielders in Serie A and is a sought after player, following his consistent performances for Napoli. The former Real Betis man was simply outstanding in the 3-1 win over Lazio as he scored his third Serie A goal of the campaign and managed the second-highest number of passes in the game (66).


Right-winger: Samu Castillejo (AC Milan)

Samu Castillejo had a brilliant game as AC Milan thrashed Cagliari 3-0. The former Spanish Under-21 international scored a goal, provided an assist, and managed the highest number of take-ons (2) in the game. The former Villarreal man finished his injury-hit campaign with two goals and three assists in 22 Serie A appearances.  


Left-winger: Diego Perotti (Roma)

Diego Perotti was in a rampant mood as he scored his first brace of the season and helped Roma to a stunning 3-1 victory over the champions, Juventus. Perotti finished his injury-ravaged season with five goals in 21 Serie A outings.


Striker: Antonio Sanabria (Genoa)

Antonio Sanabria scored when his team needed him the most. The on-loan striker from Real Betis was simply outstanding as his first-half brace helped Genoa to a 3-0 win over Hellas Verona; Genoa finished 17th and avoid relegation. The Paraguayan international finished the season with six goals in 24 Serie A appearances.


Striker: Dries Mertens (Napoli)

Dries Mertens, who is Napoli’s all-time highest goalscorer, did not have a great season by his own standards as he could not finish with double figures in front of goal for the first time in four campaigns. The Belgian ace didn’t score against Lazio but tormented the Eagles with his linkup play as he managed to provide two assists as Napoli comfortably won 3-1.
