The top player of Round 6 was Remo Freuler (9.4), who recorded an assist to add on to his already stellar outing. He had the second-most touches of anyone in this round of fixtures with 110, and also completed a superb 83/90 attempted passes.

Ruslan Malinovskyi (9.1) gained an assist, too, while he also sent six successful crosses into the box.

The beneficiary of the assists from those two players was Luis Muriel (9.0) who was Atalanta's match winner.

Joining the Colombian in the front three is Alvaro Morata (8.3), who was on the scoresheet as Juventus won against Spezia, and Musa Barrow (8.6), who scored two as Bologna beat Cagliari.

Ivan Perisic (8.6) was key to Inter claiming a point at home to Parma as it was his injury time goal which ended the game at 2-2.

Making up the midfield four is Mattia Zaccagni (8.5) of Hellas Verona.

Aleksandar Kolarov (8,4) was decent at the back but more effective going forward for Inter, as it was his assist which set up the dramatic equaliser for Perisic.

Vlad Chiriches (7.6) continues to enjoy one of the best runs of form in his career, as he helped Sassuolo keep an impressive clean sheet away at Napoli in a 2-0 win.

His goalkeeper Andrea Consigli (8.6) was also key to that clean sheet as he made six saves between the six to shut out the Partenopei.

Making up the backline is Roma's Roger Ibanez (7.6)
