Top 5 Players in Serie A this weekend
The Brazilian-born striker continues the good goalscoring form for Parma that he failed to show at Juventus, ensuring the win over Inter in the 85th minute after Sebastian Giovinco opened the scoring in the first half despite some struggles in midfield. The loss killed off the hopes of Inter recovering in the title race after their mid-week Champions League disappointment.
4. Clarence Seedorf (AC Milan)
The Dutchman scored the first goal in Milan’s routine 3-0 win over Sampdoria in the 20th minute. The win all but confirms that the scudetto will be returning to Milan but with the rossoneri rather than Inter.
3. German Denis (Udinese)
The former Napoli man came back to haunt his old club on Sunday for Udinese. The Argentine functioned as the perfect target man, winning plenty of aerial duels against Cannavaro and holding up the ball for his midfield, his performance culminating in Udinese’s second goal.
2. Robert Acquafresca (Cagliari)
The on loan striker from Genoa scored a brace that should have sealed the win for Cagliari against Lecce. The first was a sweet right-footed volley from a Lazzari cross and the second from a counter-attack launched by Biondini. Sadly for Cagliari, the defence couldn’t hold up their end of the bargain and they conceded two late goals to escape with a draw.
There’s been plenty of question marks left over the Argentine’s head this season, but, after five starts in a row, Zarate may have been a bit perturbed to find himself on the bench again. However, once Giuseppe Sculli was forced to come off with an injury, the former Birmingham City man showed off what he can do with a goal and two assists.
