Andrea Belotti scored his ninth goal of the season in the midweek round of fixtures in Serie A but was unable to stop Torino being defeated 3-1 by Roma.

Belotti earned an 8.1 FC Rating for his performance, but his goal came too late for Torino to make an impact on the game as they were already 3-0 down, with the Azzurri striker eventually unlucky to be on the losing side.

Joining him in attack in our Serie A Team of the Week is Mattia Destro (8.4) who scored both goals in a 2-2 draw as Genoa earned an excellent point against Milan and Mbala N'Zola (8.6), the best performer of the round after his double for Spezia.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (7.4) leads the midfield diamond after he assisted Ciro Immobile in Lazio's 1-1 draw away at Benevento.

Roma made it two wins on the bounce with the aforementioned victory against Torino, with Lorenzo Pellegrini (8.6) key to the result with his performance from midfield.

As well as getting on the scoresheet, he 70/78 passes, had 106 touches, and made an impressive eight ball recoveries.

Sampdoria's Albin Ekdal (7.8) and Benevento's Pasquale Schiattarella (7.7) make up the remaining two places in midfield.

The three-man defence consists of Giovanni Di Lorenzo (7.9), Yordan Osorio (7.7), and Alex Ferrari (7.7).

Nobody had more touches of the ball in this round of Serie A fixtures than Napoli's Di Lorenzo.

Pierluigi Gollini (8.5) was key as Atalanta earned a point away at Juventus, making six saves to keep the Bianconeri at bay.
