Here’s where we publish the ratings for Italian players as awarded by the country’s bestselling sports newspapers (La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport)
Patrick CUTRONE (G 7,5; C 7,5; T 7,5) Spal 0-4 Milan
After already scoring his first league goal for Milan and first European goal, the young centre-forward has now also picked up his first brace in Serie A. We probably saw the best Milan performance of the season in Ferrara as he stole the show with two instinctive finishes in the area which have become his trademark.
JORGINHO (G 8; C 8; T 6) Napoli 4-1 Lazio
His inspired play at the end of the first half was the catalyst for Napoli to push on after Lazio had taken the lead. He definitely conducts the orchestra for Sarri’s team considering his timing, leadership and never fails to help going back.
Gianluca CAPRARI (G 7,5; C 7; T 7) Sampdoria 2-0 Hellas Verona
He didn’t waste the chance given to him by Giampaolo with a performance with a capital P as he came up with a valuable assist. He moved across the whole of the front line, creating overlaps on multiple occasions as he proved to be a real thorn in the side of the Scaligeri.
Andrea BELOTTI (G 7; C 7; T 7,5) Torino 2-0 Udinese
It was the first truly impressive goal in the Belotti style of the season. He ran with the ball for 70 metres, holding off challenges from the Friulian defence before beating Bizzarri with an accurate finish across goal. The ‘Gallo’ is back!
Lorenzo INSIGNE (G 7,5; C 7; T 7) Napoli 1-4 Lazio
The match goes down as one where the only thing missing for him was a goal as he went close more than once. He was inexhaustible as a source of play and dynamism as he constantly put Inzaghi’s tactics in crisis and confirmed himself to be an undoubted leader for Napoli in attacking midfield.
