By Vasil Kotsev

  • Gianluigi Buffon

    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    Had very little to do and was left with no chance for the equaliser. Still, he showed great control of his box and was dominant in the air.

  • Paolo De Ceglie

    Paolo De Ceglie

    The defender made sure he got the basics right in an encouraging performance. Was solid at the back and made a few decent runs

  • Andrea Barzagli

    Andrea Barzagli

    Barring some nervy moments at the end of the first half, the defender did very well at the back. Showed great anticipation and often bailed out Bonucci.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    1

    2.50

    Leonardo Bonucci

    The former Bari man had a poor game. Lacked composure and his terrible clearance in the 48th minute led to the equaliser.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    10

    3.00

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    The Switzerland international was exceptional in the first half, making some rampaging runs on the flank and was a rock at the back. Provided the assist for the opening goal but his level of performance somewhat dropped after the break.

  • Simone Pepe
    1
    5
    2.50

    Simone Pepe

    Put in a lot of effort, but most of the time the final product was missing. Drifted in harmless positions and looked isolated for large parts of the encounter.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    4
    5
    3.00

    Claudio Marchisio

    Impressed with some nice flicks and passes early on, but his efficiency started to wane as the game progressed. Made some reckless challenges and should have been booked for a foul on Ibarbo in the first period.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    1
    6
    2.50

    Andrea Pirlo

    Distributed the ball, but generally failed to make a decisive impact. Put in a lot of effort in defence and was a threat from set-pieces.

  • Arturo Vidal
    4
    3
    2.50

    Arturo Vidal

    The Chilean delivered an energetic performance, but his finishing let him down on a couple of occasions. Made sure Cagliari were stifled in midfield and made a few telling interventions.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    5
    4
    3.00

    Mirko Vučinić

    Despite scoring Juve's only goal of the game, the former Roma man was very poor. Barely played with the ball and was isolated for large parts of the match.

  • Alessandro Matri
    3
    6
    2.50

    Alessandro Matri

    The 27-year-old was anonymous and failed to impress against his old team. His only chance of the game came in the first half as he stole the ball off the visitors' defence, but failed to find the target from outside the box.

Substitutions

  • Milos Krasic

    2.00

    Milos Krasic Flop of the Match

    Guilty of a horrible miss in the last moments of the game. Did his chance to make the first team regularly no good.

  • Alessandro Del Piero

    Alessandro Del Piero

    Failed to make an impact after coming on.

    Marco Borriello

    Couldn't turn the game around after replacing Mirko Vucinic.

  • Michael Agazzi

    0
    3.00

    Michael Agazzi

    Could not do anything to prevent the opener, but made a few great interventions to keep Juventus at bay. Was a bit unconvincing in the air, but improved as the game progressed.

  • Davide Astori
    1
    0
    3.50

    Davide Astori

    The former AC Milan man was easily bypassed in the build-up to the opener, but upped his level of performance later on. Showed good reading of the game and great tackling.

  • Francesco Pisano
    0
    0
    3.00

    Francesco Pisano

    Enjoyed an interesting duel with De Ceglie on the flank and was generally solid in defence. Had minimal impact in the final third, though.

  • Michele Canini
    1
    0
    3.00

    Michele Canini

    Was dragged out of position on a couple of occasions, but got his act together after the break. Showed prowess in the air.

  • Alessandro Agostini
    0
    0
    3.00

    Alessandro Agostini

    Had his fair share of trouble with Lichtsteiner as the former Lazio man was dominant on the flank. Was often easily bypassed and offered no threat in attack.

  • Radja Nainggolan
    3
    0
    2.50

    Radja Nainggolan

    The midfielder had occasional flashes of brilliance, but generally failed to spark something special. Showed good passing, but was often outmuscled in centre of the pitch.

  • Andrea Cossu
    1
    0
    3.50

    Andrea Cossu

    Was guilty of losing the ball on a lot of occasions, but more than made up for that with a fine strike to secure a point for his team. Had an inspired second half.

  • Albin Ekdal
    2
    0
    3.00

    Albin Ekdal

    The former Juve man had a horrible game as he showed poor passing and ball control. Was often frustrated by the Old Lady's dynamic midfield and failed to make an impact.

  • Daniele Dessena
    0
    0
    3.00

    Daniele Dessena

    Was nervous on the ball and often lost possession in dangerous positions. His passing was not impressive either, and was often chasing shadows.

  • Joaquin Larrivey
    0
    0
    3.00

    Joaquin Larrivey

    The striker was isolated for large parts of the game and struggled to break Juve's defence. Provided the cross, which lead to the equaliser, but generally could have done better.

  • Víctor Ibarbo
    5
    0
    3.50

    Víctor Ibarbo Top of the Match

    The striker had a very good first half as his physicality posed plenty of problems for Juve's backline. Played an important role in the equaliser as he forced Bonucci's poor clearance, which lead to the goal.

Substitutions

  • Lorenzo Ariaudo

    Lorenzo Ariaudo

    Came on to help in defence as Cagliari were holding on for a draw in the second period.

    The attacker failed to make an impact after coming on for Andrea Cossu.
