Heroes of the week
Not a very brilliant week for our exported Italians this time. No goalscorers, one assist-man, and an unlucky one at that.
Luca Toni may well have provided a very nice assist for Zé Roberto’s equalizer vs. Werder Bremen, he also had a penalty shot parried away by Tim Wiese in the same match. Tough luck for the ex-Fiorentina striker, who has also lost first spot in the Bundesliga scoring charts, at the expense of Hamburg’s Rafael Van der Vaart.
As for Giuseppe Rossi, he put an end to a very productive streak of goals and assists, with a rather bleak performance vs. Murcia this week. Fortunately for his team, the Yellow Submarine managed to scrape away the win in the final minutes of the match.
