In Serie A this weekend, the attackers were left more frustrated than usual by a series of excellent defensive performances. Starting in goal, Luigi Sepe (8.4) made four saves, as well as a further one from the penalty spot, as Parma secured a clean sheet in a 1-0 away win over Sampdoria.
Two Atalanta boys in the form of Berat Gjimshiti (8.2) and Rafael Toloi (8.1) feature in defence after a goal and an assist respectively in the win over Verona.
They are joined by Diego Godin (8.4) who further enhanced his shout for signing of the season with a towering defensive display for Inter in the 0-0 draw with Roma.
The best performer of the week was Cristian Ansaldi (8.5) who recorded a goal and an assist for Torino in the victory over Fiorentina.
Filip Duricic (8.3) scored one and set up another for Sassuolo, while Amadou Diawara (8.1) and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (7.9) were vital for Roma and Lazio respectively as they claimed excellent results against Inter and Juventus.
