The standout stars from this weekend’s action in Italy are given the praise they deserve in our latest XI
It was a weekend like few others in Italy as Juventus went down to their first defeat since October, but there were some familiar names leading the way elsewhere and they get their reward with a place in the Goal Team of the Week for Round 31.
Simone Scuffet‘s star continues to shine at Udinese, and his performance against Catania earns him the No.1 jersey, while Danilo‘s contribution in the 1-0 win gives him a centre-back spot. Adil Rami was bang in form as AC Milan beat Chievo 3-0, while Faouzi Ghoulam and Henrique were two of the key components as Napoli’s downed the champions at San Paolo.
Hernanes struck for Inter as they drew 2-2 with Livorno, while Marco Donadel also netted in Verona’s return to winning ways against Genoa. Alessio Cerci was Torino’s star once again as they saw off Cagliari, and Kaka was back to his old self in scoring twice to ensure Milan overcame Chievo.
Lorenzo Insigne may not have made it onto the scoresheet, but he was a huge reason that Napoli beat Juve 2-0, while Luca Toni takes our No.9 shirt after scoring twice to wrap up Verona’s 3-0 win at home to Genoa.
