Top 5 players in Serie A this weekend
A torrid time at Juventus has left the Brazilian-born striker’s reputation in tatters, but his two goals allowed Parma to get a point against Roma having been 2-0 down at half-time.
4. Wesley Sneijder (Inter Milan)
A dull game against Sampdoria looked to be heading towards a single point for Internazionale. Then all of a sudden, a brilliant free-kick from the Dutchman put Inter ahead, leaving them just two points behind first-placed Milan, albeit the leaders have a game in hand.
3. Marco Di Vaio (Bologna)
The Bologna striker scored a brace against a pedestrian Juve side to put his former team to the sword. He shrugged off the pressure of Giorgio Chiellini after leaving Barzagli for dead to slot in his first and was quickest in a goalmouth scramble to seal the win.
2. Antonio Di Natale (Udinese)
You can’t have one without the other. Sanchez managed one more goal than the Italian striker, but it’s another hat-trick for Di Natale this season. If they had started the season this impressively, Udinese would be in the title hunt, but keep up this form and they should be in line for a Champions League spot.
Before the game against Palermo, Sanchez had never scored more than one goal in a Serie A game, now his record stands at four after a sensational display against the Sicilian club for Udinese.
