Kuala Lumpur: Giuliano has been named as the Toyota Player of the Week after the striker scored in Al Nassr's 2-1 victory over Qatar's Al Sadd on Monday to help his side take a slim advantage in the first leg of their 2019 AFC Champions League quarter-final.
After teammate Abdulrahman Al Dossari had cancelled out Ali Asad's first half opener, Giuliano headed home a well-worked team move on 72 minutes to give Al Nassr a vital lead to take to Doha on September 16.
As well as his goal, which came from one of his five shots on target, Giuliano created five chances for teammates and made 54 passes, 48 of which were completed, as he earned an 8.1 rating.
Another Saudi Arabia-based player, Abdullah Al Mayoof (below), came in second in this week’s rankings after the Al Hilal goalkeeper kept a cleansheet in the 0-0 stalemate with fierce rivals Al Ittihad.
