Goal hands out the awards to the star men of the past few days in Italy after a high-scoring round of fixtures, with the Germany international the pick of the forwards

While Juventus wrapped up a second successive Scudetto with a narrow victory over Palermo there were goals galore on offer elsewhere, meaning the latest Goal.com Team of the Week is bulging with high scorers.

AC Milan earned a 1-0 victory over Torino thanks to Mario Balotelli's late goal, but they may have been in big trouble had it not been for the performance of Christian Abbiati between the posts.

Udinese's 3-1 win over Sampdoria came thanks to some great individual efforts, not least from Danilo, while Andrea Barzagli ensured Juve became champions once more with a solid showing at the back against Palermo. Genoa sent Pescara down to Serie B and boosted their own survival hopes with a 4-1 win inspired by Luca Antonelli down the left side of defence.

Adem Ljajic continued his excellent recent form with a great showing in a losing effort for Fiorentina against Roma, but Senad Lulic's performance was rewarded with three points as Lazio thrashed Bologna with the help of a goal from Anderson Hernanes. Kwadwo Asamoah's magnificent first season with Juventus ends with him earning a champion's medal, and it was fitting that he delivered a fine effort in the title-clinching win against Palermo.

Up top, we have three superstars. Gonzalo Bergessio netted a treble in Catania's win over Siena, matching Edinson Cavani's return against Inter for Napoli. But Miroslav Klose was the undoubted star of the weekend, helping himself to five goals in Lazio's 6-0 victory over Bologna.
