Juventus enjoyed one of their best results and performances of the season on Saturday when they comfortably defeated Parma 4-0 in Serie A.

Cristiano Ronaldo (9.1) and Alvaro Morata (9.5) were the stars of the show, scoring three of the four goals between them.

The Portuguese star scored two but was actually upstaged in terms of performance rating by Morata, who recorded two assists as well as a goal of his own.

The pair are now looking like one of the most proficient striking duos in Europe at the moment.

Juve are well-represented in our Serie A Team of the Week, as in addition to Ronaldo and Morata there is Rodrigo Bentancur (8.9) in midfield and Matthijs de Ligt (8.1) in defence.

In this round of Serie A fixtures, nobody touches the ball or completed more passes than the Dutchman.

Making up the front three alongside the Juve duo is Josip Ilicic (8.9), who scored one and assisted two in Atalanta's impressive 4-1 home victory against Roma.

Ilicic actually came off the bench when Atalanta were 1-0 down, and catalysed the comeback with his superb display. His goal, La Dea's fourth of the day, summed up his close control and overall brilliance on the day.

One of his assists came for Robin Gosens (8.0) who drifted in from left wing-back to head in the goal to give the home side the lead.

Sampdoria's Jakub Jankto (8.3) and Milan's Alexis Saelemaekers (7.9) make up the midfield three alongside Bentancur.

The remaining two places in the four-man defence alongside Gosens and De Ligt are taken by Fiorentina's German Pezzella (7.5) and Achraf Hakimi (7.7) of Inter.

Lazio earned an excellent 2-0 win against Napoli, with Pepe Reina (8.5) making eight saves to ensure the capital club kept a clean sheet.
