Here’s where we publish the best player ratings picked up by Italian footballers in the country’s bestselling sports newspapers (La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport).
Ciro IMMOBILE (G 9; C 9; T 9) LAZIO-MILAN 4-1
Simply unstoppable. The Azzurri striker pulled off a magical performance on Sunday, as he melted through the Milan defence for the entire 90 minutes. Unable to deal with his pace, pressing and persistence, Immobile eventually bagged himself a memorable hat-trick at the Stadio Olmpico and also provided the assist for Luis Alberto’s smart final finish.
Federico CHIESA (G 7; C 7,5; T 7,5) HELLAS VERONA-FIORENTINA 0-5
Following the summer departure of Bernardeschi, the Viola starlet has now already stepped forward as their new pivotal playmaker, with his display on Sunday helping Fiorentina secure a much-needed morale boost. Coming off the back of a recent international break, Stefano Pioli’s side finally looked to possess squad characteristics against Hellas Verona and Federico Chiesa was without doubt at the heart of their 5-0 away win.
Salvatore SIRIGU (G 7,5; C 7; T 7,5) BENEVENTO-TORINO 0-1
This latest performance demonstrated that the Italian shot-stopper still truly means business. However, with the plaudits evidently heading towards Iago Falque for his dramatic last-minute winner, one cannot ignore the contribution made by Sirigu. Keeping out the home side for the entire match, his resilience between the sticks was what crucially made their victory possible.
