The goalkeeper could have pulled up a chair and enjoyed the game, as Parma never really threatened him. Had to parry one shot from Giovinco, and was left with no chance for the penalty.
The ex-Lazio man delivered an almost impeccable performance. Was strong in the tackle, well positioned, and a genuine threat down the flank. Scored a goal in a manner that would befit a striker.
The ex-Wolfsburg man delivered a good performance as he was assured at the back, impressing with his marking. Intervened when needed.
The Juventus defence was stable, and he played his part by organising the rearguard without much trouble. Also demonstrated sound positioning and tackling.
P. De Ceglie
Was solid in defence, but failed to be much of a threat in attack. A black dot on his performance was the needless penalty and red card just before the full-time whistle, which his team could have done without.
The new signing more than proved his worth with two sublime assists which deservedly earned him the man of the match. Inspirational passing, superb control and impeccable technique were the order of the day as he delivered a performance worthy of his best years. The chipped passes to Lichtsteiner for the opener, and for Marchisio for the fourth were a joy to behold.
The ex-Udinese man is slowly winning over the Juve fans. Delivered another good performance, providing defensive cover down the flank, and while his crossing was not top-notch, his finish for the second goal of the game was.
The midfielder did a lot of defensive work in the first half, but failed to offer much of a threat to Mirante's goal before the break. Things changed afterwards, as he netted with sublime touch to put the cherry on the cake.
The winger worked hard down the left, but failed to offer anything special. Put in a few good passes, but his final ball left a lot to be desired.
Had a goal disallowed in the first half, and hit the post in the second period. Did well, but just lacked luck.
A. Del Piero
The Juventus legend put in an energetic performance as he led the attack by example. Showed some great touches and will be disappointed not to have bagged a goal.
The ex-Juventus goalkeeper looked like a one-man army at times as he tried to repel the Old Lady's attacks. Pulled off some good saves, but could not do anything for any of the hosts' goals.
The Argentine was caught flat-footed occasionally as Juventus' forwards drifted behind him with relative ease. Did not read the game well, and his positioning was disappointing.
The defender was relatively solid before the break as he helped Parma keep the scoreline at 1-0 in the first half. Completely lost the plot in the second period as his hesitancy to close down opponents was one of the main reasons for his side's collapse.
Managed to contain Pepe on the flank in the first period, but looked completely clueless after the break. Failed at the back, and did not offer much in attack.
The ex-Wolfsburg defender was probably the most stable unit of Parma's rearguard. Did well to nullify Giaccherini's threat, but failed to offer much up front.
Failed to offer any threat down the flank as he was kept on a tight leash by Pepe and Lichtsteiner. A game to forget.
Could not keep up with Juventus' vibrant midfield pairing and failed to exert his authority in the centre of the pitch. Lacked pace, and was chasing shadows most of the time. Disappointing passing from the midfielder also.
The ex-Siena midfielder completely failed in midfield as he did not offer any protection to his defence, and had minimal contribution in attack.
Started brightly, but soon started to fade away as the game progressed. Tried to break away down the flank, but was often crowded out by the Old Lady's defenders.
Struggled against the Old Lady, as they managed to contain him with relative ease. Was starved of service, but popped in with a great run to win a penalty just before full-time. Converted the spot-kick, sending Buffon the wrong way.
Flop of the match, hands down. One could hardly tell he was on the pitch as he struggled to break Barzagli and Chiellini's defensive pairing. Replaced in the second half by Sergio Floccari.
- 30 M. Storari
- 19 L. Bonucci
The Serbian looked much more incisive than Pepe on the right wing, but his desire could not match his final ball. Still, a good cameo.
- 17 E. Elia
The ex-Bayer Leverkusen man made instant impact as Juventus sprung into life after the Chilean entered the pitch. Scored one of the goals of the weekend with a marvellous volley, and made sure Parma barely crossed the half-way line.
- 20 L. Toni
Got one good chance after a pass by Pepe, but saw his finish blocked. Aside from that, his contribution was minimal.
