Cristiano Ronaldo (9.2) was at his lethal best against Udinese this weekend as Juventus won 3-1, with him scoring the opening two goals in the first half with a pair of superb finishes.

A bit further back, Rodrigo Bentancur (8) earns his place after his passing exploits, and is joined by Juve team-mates Merih Demiral (8.3) and Leonardo Bonucci (8.2).

Behind Ronaldo in the attacking midfield triumvirate is Dejan Kulusekvski (8.1), Nikolas Spalek (8.2), and Luis Alberto (8) who scored for Parma, Brescia, and Lazio respectively.

Fabian Ruiz (7.9) features in the centre of midfield.

Joining the Juve boys in defence is Cristian Ansaldi (8.6), who was once again superb for Torino, scoring two goals, and Alessandro Florenzi (7.9).

The best performer of the entire week, however, was Sassuolo goalkeeper Gianluca Pegolo (9.5), who made eight saves as he helped hold Milan to a 0-0 draw.
