Apologies about the click-bait title, but this really was a fun one. A single vote decided the MoTM, and the winner was Paulo Dybala.
Dybala has truly had a remarkable start to the campaign, and this match was no different with him scoring two goals and winning the MoTM award with 180 upvotes in his favour. He moves into the undisputed first place for the complete season, and increased his lead for the Serie A.
Miralem Pjanic also had a fantastic game with a goal and two assists, earning him 179 votes, one shy of Dybala. He moves into 5th place in the Serie A ranking, but 3rd among regular starters with a significant sample, behind Blaise Matuidi. Matuidi has also consistenly put in some very good performances, and sits 4th overall on the team, and 2nd in Serie A. That’s looking like another good buy, even at the price.
Behind them had a tie for third place with Alex Sandro and Mario Mandzukic both receiving 155 upvotes, with the former scoring a goal. Sandro is back in the top 11 overall performers, after his slow start.
The players with the lowest amount was another tie with Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi tying in last place with a still very respectable 63 upvotes a piece, or 28% of voters as substitues. After them was Mehdi Benatia who received 68 upvotes or 30% of voters, the lowest of any starter.
Since it was so tight, I’ll give you another chance to decide who the MoTM was.
