Today’s hero of the week: Celtic midfielder Massimo Donati, who has become an irreplaceable piece in manager Gordon Strachan’s chessboard. The Italian scored yet another goal this week in the 5-0 home win to Inverness, and hopefully there will be more where that came from in the Champions’ League (where Celtic are in AC Milan’s group).
Meanwhile, ex-Livorno striker Cristiano Lucarelli upped his goal total in the Ukrainian league (a transformed penalty shot which puts Shakhtar Donetsk at 1st spot in the rankings), while goalkeeper Flavio Roma had an unlucky return from injury, as his team Monaco lost an home clash to rivals PSG.
