Serie A Worst Team Of The Week: Round 32

Worst XI

Formation: 4-4-2

Goalkeeper

Federico Marchetti (Cagliari): The Italian international looked quite ordinary as he fumbled Ignazio Abate’s cross off of defender Davide Astori and into his own net. It turned out to be the decisive, and easily avoidable, goal that won the match in Milan’s favour.

Defence

Santiago Morero (Chievo)
: The South American struggled to deal with the likes of the Sampdoria strikers and was eventually sent off for a needless tackle from behind on Antonio Cassano in midfield.

Nicola Legrottaglie (Juventus): The veteran was embarrassed by Udinese’s quick attackers and looked slow or out of position on all three of the host’s goals at the Stadio Friuli.

Dorin Goian (Palermo): The Romanian’s error gifted Maxi Lopez with the opener in the Sicilian derby and his confidence was lacking for the rest of the match as the Etnei took the island’s bragging rights with a comprehensive victory.

Salvatore Lanna (Bologna): The Nerazzurri attack had plenty of success on his flank as the likes of Mario Balotelli, Goran Pandev and Davide Santon pinned him back with consummate ease. He was never able to assert himself in the match.

Midfield


Reginaldo (Siena):
Against Atalanta the Brazilian was all show and no substance. He threatened to make things happen in attack, but when the time came he never delivered a telling cross or made a decisive manoeuvre.

Andrea Pirlo (Milan):
The World Cup winner’s season continues to degrade, as his performances go from bad to worse. His passing was imprecise and his shooting more wayward, Pirlo also committed a blunder when dispossessed in midfield, allowing Cagliari to level the score at the time.



Fabio Liverani (Palermo): Another Rosanero culprit was the former Lazio playmaker, who failed to carve open the Catania defence and was at fault as his misplaced pass eventually resulted in a crucial second goal.

Francesco Modesto (Bologna): Too easily bossed around in midfield, the winger hardly had any effect on the match at the San Siro, save for when he missed a golden chance to pull back a goal just before being replaced by Marcelo Zalayeta.

Attack


Amauri (Juventus):
  The Brazilian threatened little against Udinese, with not one real chance. You could blame the service of his team-mates, but the former Palermo man must really show some desire and improve his movement to help Juve get out of this slump.

Raffaele Palladino (Genoa):
The former Juventus man can be a very frustrating figure to watch. Often alternating very good performances with extremely poor ones...versus Livorno, it was definitely the latter. Summed up by one of his efforts late in the match, which was too weak to trouble the keeper.
