After five consecutive seasons the Italian Serie A he did not have a Colombian player who shouted championsince after 38 days the Italian league concluded with the Inter title but also with great prominence of the coffee growers after the brilliant performances of Muriel and Zapata at Atalanta and the consistency and indisputable ownership of a Juan Guillermo Cuadrado who became an idol at Juventus.
LOUIS FERNANDO MURIEL
Without a doubt, he was the Colombian soccer player who stood out the most this season in Serie A. With the Atalanta Muriel broke it, it was like the third best scorer in the championship with 22 goalsonly surpassed by Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo, but Muriel not only scored, also gave 9 assists for her teammates to hole her up. Already in the relationship between goals and minutes played between the strikers of the Italian league, Santo Tomás was the best, not even CR7 was above the record of the Colombian, the Portuguese scored 29 goals, one every 97 minutes, meanwhile the player of the Bergamo team did 22 in 1420 minutes, that is, one every 65 minutes. Muriel’s mark at European level was only surpassed by Lewandowski of Bayern Munich.
With the team led by Gian Piero Gasperini they got a place in the UEFA Champions League, but on the last day in their defeat against Milan, they lost second place in the table and in this way the opportunity to make history, since the most Atalanta has been able to do in a Serie A season is to finish third, its usual place in the table for the last three years.
Altogether with La Dea Muriel played in this period the sum of 36 games, being a starter in only 20 of themwhich makes his scoring record more impressive by not having guaranteed ownership. Due to his lethality after coming off the bench he has been considered as the best substitute in the world.
The ‘Bull’ was not far behind his compatriot and strike partner at Atalanta. He played 37 of the 38 games of the season in calcium, being a starter in 29 of these. In terms of notes he was the team’s second goalscorer with 15 goalsbut he was also supportive and gave 10 assists. The historic second place with the Bergamo team escaped him, but personally for Duván he achieved it with La Dea for the third time in a row a place in the UEFA Champions League.
JOHN WILLIAM SQUARE
It was the first time that he could not win the scudetto since defending the colors of Juventus. They were five consecutive seasons achieving it, but still the Colombian was one of the highest points in Pirlo’s team. When he was not due to sanction or after testing positive for Covid-19 or due to injury, Juve suffered like never beforeOn the right wing he provided clarity to his teammates and was lethal with his crosses and assists on goal. Cuadrado finished as the third best assister in Serie A with ten passes that ended with the ball in the net. With a brilliant performance of his, including a double, they defeated the champion Inter (3-2) in the penultimate day of the championship, they were the only goals of the Colombian in this period.

In total, Juan Guillermo played 30 games this season in the Italian league, starting 26 of them.
Injuries and the constant rotation with his partner Alex Meret made David Ospina barely saved in 16 Serie A games in this period that has just ended. It was not the best performance for a Napoli that finished just fifth with a place in the UEFA Europa League. The goalkeeper of the Colombian National Team received twelve goals with the Neapolitans and managed to get his goal to zero eight times.
The experienced Colombian defender had had a start to the season as a starter, but then came the coronavirus infection and some muscular discomfort that made him lose his place in the initial formation from Genoa. He played just 12 games and in all of them he did it from the start. With their club they finished in 11th place.
