Radja Nainggolan (10) put in the performance of the weekend in Serie A as he starred for Cagliari in a 5-2 win over Fiorentina, scoring a screamer from 30 yards as well as recording a hat-trick of assists. He is joined in midfield by colleagues Marko Rog (8.1) and Luca Cigarini (8.7), who were also superb in the same match.

Torino destroyed Brescia 4-0 with two goals each from Andrea Belotti (8.8) and Alex Berenguer (8.8) earning them a place in the forward line, where they make up the front three alongside Joaquin Correa (9.6), who scored a double as Lazio recovered from their Europa League loss at home to Celtic with a 4-2 victory against Lecce.

Dalbert Henrique (7.7) makes the cut at left-back despite being on the receiving end of five conceded goals in the aforementioned loss against Cagliari. Solid enough performances from Stefan de Vrij (8.4), Berat Gjimshiti, and Giovanni Di Lorenzo (7.5) gain them a place in defence, with the Dutchman also recorded an assist for Inter in their comeback win versus Verona.

Wojciech Szczęsny (9.4) is in goal after his miraculous performance for Juventus against Milan in which he made seven saves to see his side on their way to a narrow 1-0 win.
