Evergreen Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads the Serie A Team of the Week after his magnificent outing in the Milan derby.

The former Inter striker put his previous employers to the sword by scoring two goals in the first half as Milan won 2-1, at the age of 39-years-old, and having just recovered from coronavirus.

Overall, his match-winning performance earned him a 9.2 FC Rating.

Joining him in an impressive attack are Romelu Lukaku (8.2), who came out second best in the derby along with his Inter team-mates, and Edin Dzeko (8.6), who scored two as Roma defeated Benevento 5-2.

Going to the other end of the pitch, David Ospina (7.8) featured in goal as he was solid between the sticks for Napoli in the impressive 4-1 win over Atalanta.

Another impressive and surprising win this weekend came from Sampdoria as they beat Lazio 3-0. Left-back Tommaso Augello (9) scored one and set up another in that victory.

Joining him in defence are team-mate Lorenzo Tonelli (7.2), German Pezzella (7.1) of Fiorentina, and Giovanni Di Lorenzo (7.6) of Napoli.

An attacking looking midfield consists of Bologna's Roberto Soriano (8.1), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (8.6), and Hirving Lozano (8.8).

Mkhitaryan set up two for Roma, while Lozano scored two for Napoli.
