Goal looks at the star performers from the past few days of action across Italy’s top division
The latest Goal Team of the Week for Serie A begins with a man who was on the losing side, but Mattia Perin‘s fantastic goalkeeping display deserves praise despite Genoa’s 2-0 loss to Juventus.
Norbert Gyomber‘s first Serie A start was one to remember, with the 21-year-old helping Catania to hold out Sassuolo. He’s joined in defence by more familiar names, with Mehdi Benatia and Giorgio Chiellini each having a big say as Roma beat Udinese and Juve saw off Genoa.
Jose Crespo was a matchwinner for Bologna, striking in the opening moments against Livorno, and Arturo Vidal also found the scoresheet in Juventus’ 2-0 win. Juan Cuadrado‘s double ensured Fiorentina took three points off Chievo, while Marco Parolo was also a two-goal hero as Parma shocked Milan.
Rodrigo Palacio netted in Inter’s 4-2 win over Verona, while Carlos Tevez found the mark as Genoa were beaten in Turin. Elsewhere, Napoli got back to winning ways thanks in part to Dries Mertens‘ influence in the final third as two penalties downed Torino.
