Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Fabio QUAGLIARELLA (G 7,5; C 7,5; T 7) Sampdoria 5-1 Brescia
He’s been on the hunt for home goals ever since last season, but now they’re arriving thick and fast. It was a game dominated by the Blucerchiati with the number 27 at the spearpoint of all their good play. He kicked things off from the penalty spot and then added a second with a delightful lob that truly ignited the Marassi.
Salvatore SIRIGU (G 7; C 7; T 7,5) Torino 1-0 Bologna
Two saves to secure three points and one priceless performance between the sticks. He kept out Orsolini in the first half, then did superbly to deny Palacio in the second. This goalkeeper is continuing in a truly impressive vein of form.
Ciro IMMOBILE (G 7; C 7,5; T 7) Lazio 1-0 Napoli
It’s now ten league wins in a row for Lazio, with their hot streak being stamped by yet another Ciro Immobile goal. A fox in the box with a super sense for when chances might arise, it was his cunning and perseverance that allowed him to nick the ball off Ospina to score. Even when chances are in short supply, he never drops his intensity and makes the most of everything that comes his way.
