Serie A Team of the Week: Merry Mertens is Napoli's midweek star

Goal runs through the stars of the show in the midweek round of Italian league action
Juventus players dominate the latest Serie A Team of the Week, but it is a goalkeeper used to playing behind another set of black and white stripes who takes the first spot. Udinese shot-stopper Zeljko Brkic grabs the number one jersey thanks to his superb display in the 2-1 win at Sassuolo.

Michael Ciani is the only non-Juve defender in the lineup thanks to his performance without the ball and his late equaliser in Lazio's 1-1 draw at Milan. The other three in the back line are all Bianconeri, with goalscorer Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and rare starter Paolo De Ceglie all worthy of immense credit in the one-sided win over Catania.

Bologna pair Michele Pazienza and Panagiotis Kone both grabbed goals in a rare Bologna win at Cagliari, while Ricardo Alvarez found the scoresheet in Inter's draw with Atalanta on Tuesday. Kaka's first goal since returning to Milan sees him make our XI, and Dries Mertens' star showing and winning goal against Fiorentina ensure some Napoli representation.

The lone striker is Juve star Carlos Tevez, who led the attack on Catania as the league champions posted a huge 4-0 home win.
