Serie A Team Of The Week: Round 6

BEST XI

Formation: 3-4-3

Goalkeeper

Marco Storari (Milan):
That the Rossoneri managed a point against Bari is due to the many saves of the veteran shot-stopper. His biggest highlight was a one-handed save on an Emanuel Rivas effort that was curling into the top corner.

Defence


Lino Marzoratti (Cagliari):
Punctual and powerful, none of the Parma strikers - Jonathan Biabiany, Alberto Paloschi, Nicola Amoruso or Valeri Bojinov - could get the better of him on Sunday.

Nicolas Spolli (Catania):
The Argentine was a wall that stopped Mirko Vucinic, Francesco Totti and Simone Perrotta. He arrived in Sicily and was expected to be a rotated player, but displays like this will make him a permanent fixture in the starting XI.

Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus):
The defender continues to be a colossus at the back for the Turin giants and played a nearly perfect game against Bologna, making a goal-line clearance on Marco Di Vaio and putting in a commanding performance. More of the same will be needed against Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek.

Midfield


Alexis Sanchez (Udinese):
The starlet is developing nicely and ensuring that the Zebrette are not too concerned with the summer departure of Fabio Quagliarella. Assisted the first goal in the 2-0 win over Genoa and added plenty of spark to the attack in a new position on the right of midfield.

Daniele Dessena (Cagliari):
The 22-year-old condemned his former club, in the city where he was born, to a loss by showing great composure to score the winner at Parma. In the midfield, he fought for every ball until the end.

Daniele De Rossi (Roma):
As always, he is the last to give up for the Giallorossi and showed it in Catania with a last minute goal to salvage a point. He truly is a gladiator of Roma.

Marek Hamsik (Napoli): If not for the Slovakian star, Napoli could be destined for relegation. His performances have constantly been of the highest calibre, while his team-mates have struggled. He gave the Partenopei a much needed win against Siena with a brace.

Attack


Antonio Di Natale (Udinese):
The 31-year-old is absolutely on fire at the moment. A constant danger to Genoa, he shot home his eighth goal of the Serie A season with a creative spin move. An excellent player who can turn a game at any moment. This season's capocannoniere?

Jeda (Cagliari): He seemed to be an inspiration as the island outfit vanquished the usually impressive Parma. He started off on the right foot when he opened the scoring after eight minutes and was involved in every attack that the Rossoblu produced from then on.

Giampaolo Pazzini (Sampdoria):
Although he was deprived of service for long periods, the Italian worked hard all match long and scored a precious goal against champions Inter by side-footing home from close range. That goal put the Blucerchiati at the top of the Serie A standings.
