For the composition of the top 100, the Gazzetta took into account several parameters: the weekly reviews in the newspaper, the goals, the continuity, the influence on the team and the ranking. Players must have at least 15 matches on the counter to be eligible.
Seasonal revelation Atalanta is the purveyor to the Royal Household. The Bergamo club has 10 players, 4 of them in the top 20. The number 1 is a player of champion Juventus. Not Cristiano Ronaldo – who shines at 3 – but Paulo Dybala. With an average of 6.8, the Argentinian also received the highest rating of the season.
Lazio top scorer Ciro Immobile is in 2nd place, followed by Ronaldo, Papu Gomez (Atalanta) and Romelu Lukaku (Inter). “23 goals in his first season, a great average of 6.42 and a lot of useful work done for his team,” writes Gazzetta about Lukaku
In 8th place is an old acquaintance of the Jupiler Pro League with Sofyan Amrabat. The midfielder fell by the wayside at Club Brugge, but played a very strong season at Hellas Verona and immediately decorated a transfer to Fiorentina.
In the top 100 we find 3 Belgians again: Radja Nainggolan (Cagliari) is 15 and got a higher average rating than Lukaku with 6.5. Dries Mertens (46th) and Timothy Castagne (84th) also receive a mention of the Gazzetta.
