Here’s where we publish the top player ratings earned by Italian footballers in the country’s bestselling sports newspapers (La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport)
Alex CORDAZ (G 8; C 8; T 7,5) TORINO 1-1 CROTONE
It’s certainly not a new thing for one of his performances to be among the best in Serie A. Over the Easter fixtures, the point picked up away at Torino was largely thanks to the veteran goalkeeper. Only Andrea Belotti’s penalty was able to get past him and he was a brick wall for the rest. If Crotone are still in with a chance of survival, it’s largely thanks to Cordaz.
Eugenio LAMANNA (G 7; C 7,5; T 7,5) GENOA 2-2 Lazio
The Genoa goalkeeper came up with the umpteenth penalty save of his career although the rebound was turned home and he made a number of difficult saves throughout. There was nothing he could do for the Lazio goals but it was a top class display overall. The positive performance from Genoa was rewarded with a point thanks to some of his vital saves.
Marco BORRIELLO (G 7; C 7,5; T 7) CAGLIARI 4-0 CHIEVO
The veteran Rossoblu forward put in another solid display. He was on the scoresheet for the 15th time this season as he continues to show that he’s still got it in his golden years. After opening the scoring, his Cagliari side went on a rout.
Marco SAU (G 7,5; C 7,5; T 6,5) CAGLIARI 4-0 CHIEVO
He was back among the goals with a strike from what seemed like an impossible angle as he displayed the athletic and technical freshness which distinguishes him. The forward looked for a second with a fine bicycle kick, he was often able to beat his man during a lively and excellent display.
Francesco ACERBI (G 7; C 7; T 7,5) SASSUOLO 2-1 SAMPDORIA
He succeeded in the tough task of holding an in-form Fabio Quagliarella at bay and was able to ensure it was a happy Easter for the Neroverdi with his goal worth three points. It was another great performance this season from the Italian defender with his excellent form being topped off by an impressive goalscoring return.
