The splendid and often unplayable Napoli of the third Scudetto stands above all the other teams in the championship in the overall evaluation, but in addition to the merits of Luciano Spalletti the triumph also had its bases in a group of excellent protagonists, five of which enter the top 11 of the championship. The ideal formation - Provedel, Di Lorenzo, Kim, Smalling, Di Marco, Lobotka, Tonali, Rabiot, Lautaro, Osimhen, Kvara - cannot fail to reflect the outcome of the season, with Inter queen of cups represented twice, Lazio revelation and the most fluctuating Milan, Roma and Juve with a player. Of last year's best, however, only the Rossoneri remained.
PROVEDEL: owner by chance in Lazio, he becomes the best goalkeeper of A with 21 clean sheets in 38 games giving security to the department well packaged by Sarri. Bad in the ko with Torino, good almost always, in particular with Fiorentina, Verona and Naples.
-DI LORENZO: magnificent captain of the Scudetto, leader of the locker room and driver, also for his past as a striker. He only struck in the 0-4 with Milan, always among the best, 3 goals and 4 assists, multipurpose exterior
-KIM: Koulibaly's legacy was heavy, but Giuntoli sniffed the deal with Fenerbahce (but now he can leave for 45 million). Physically strong but agile, he plays ahead and has had an excellent impact helping to make the defense impenetrable. He scored two goals.
-SMALLING: when he is missing, Roma's defense makes water, protagonist of a sumptuous season, held back by some injuries. Two goals in his offensive sorties, impeccable even in the final in Budapest, he lacks only the construction of the game.
-DI MARCO: after the experience in Verona it takes a year to break through in Inter, Inzaghi prefers him to Gosens after Perisic and the blue shows off a sparkling season with 4 assists and 4 goals. Masterful against Verona and in the double at Bologna.
-LOBOTKA: the metronome to whom Spalletti entrusts the midfield after the departure of Fabian Ruiz builds a dazzling season creating total harmony with Anguissa and Zielinski. He starts with the goal at Verona, sews the game and sacrifices himself for others. In the last two months it has a slight decline.
-TONALI: after the Scudetto a fourth place with Milan, but he is always a protagonist of excellence. Position, temperament, class allow him to shine (even if Mancini left him out for the Nations League): 7 assists and 2 goals in the season with great tests in the derby, with Salernitana, Napoli and Samp.
-RABIOT: in good times and in bad times he keeps Juventus alive with personality, class and great conclusions. He made 4 assists and 8 goals, including the double at Empoli. Very nervous, also takes 9 yellows. It could be his last year in Turin.
-LAUTARO: the world champion Toro had ups and downs before and after Qatar but at the right time he came back devastating in front of goal. He has exceeded 100 goals in 4 years of Inter and this year, waiting for Istanbul, he is at 28 with four doubles (Fiorentina, Cremonese, Lazio and Verona).
-OSIMHEN: top scorer with 26 goals and driver, the masked man is the emblem of the Scudetto. Hat-trick with Sassuolo, doubles with Juventus, Spezia, Torino and Bologna. In his third year in Naples he takes flight and now has a valuation of over 100 million.
-KVARA: Giuntoli's masterpiece, 15 mln for the Georgian talent who resembles George Best. Uncatchable in dribbling, possessing agility, technique and shooting, he completed himself with Osimhen in Spalletti's schemes. At 22 he is worth almost 100 million, the extra weapon of the Scudetto. Devastating impact, slight drop in the spring with games done, 12 goals with a double (at Monza) and two penalties, 10 assists.
Many other protagonists: among the goalkeepers, Meret and Vicario. Among the defenders Buongiorno, Acerbi, Schuurs. Among the midfielders Matic, Mkhitaryan, Anguissa, Koopmeister, Hjulmand, Barella, Ferguson. Among the finishers-strikers Bonaventura, Saponara, Orsolini, Dybala, Berardi, Strefezza, Lookman, Sanabria, Dia, Nzola, Cabral, Leao, Hojlund and Zaccagni.
