Lazio are now within just five points of the Champions League qualification spots after an impressive 3-0 victory against Milan in Roma.

Joaquin Correa (9.0) was the star of the show as he scored two of the three goals and had 11 touches inside the opposition box which was the third highest tally of any player this weekend.

The Lazio man leads the Serie A Team of the Week, and features behind Atalanta's Luis Muriel (8.5) who scored one and assisted another as La Dea demolished Bologna 5-0 to move up to second in the table.

The other spots in the front four are taken by Domenico Berardi (8.3) who scored as Sassuolo beat Sampdoria 1-0, and Adam Ounas (8.9) who scored one and set up a further two as Crotone defeated Parma away from home in a 4-3 thriller.

Both Crotone and Parma still appear to be doomed to relegation, however.

Ruslan Malinovskyi (8.8) was a major creative force for Atalanta and scored one and set up another goal in the win against Bologna. He also sent 29 passes into the final third - a tally that was only bettered by two other players in this round of fixtures.

He is joined by Rodrigo De Paul (8.5) in what is very much an attack-based central midfield in our Team of the Week. De Paul, who is apparently a summer transfer target for Inter and Liverpool, recorded two assists for Udinese.

The full-back positions are made up by Sassuolo's Giorgos Kiriakopoulos (7.4) and Napoli's Giovanni Di Lorenzo (7.8).

Inter took a massive step towards the Scudetto win a 1-0 win against Verona, and Stefan de Vrij (7.7) was key to the clean sheet gained as he was solid at the back, winning the majority of his duels and completing a brilliant 45/48 passes.

Genoa's Davide Biraschi (7.9) earns his place after winning 5/6 duels, 3/3 aerial duels, and making seven ball recoveries.

Napoli won 2-0 away at Torino but had to rely on a good performance from Alex Meret (8.0) between the sticks to ensure the clean sheet.
