Kept his concentration well to keep out the occasional Roma attempt on his goal, and could do little about Osvaldo's penalty.
Much like Chiellini, he was imperious at the back, especially during Roma's second-half surge. Defended with purpose and composure.
Did not have much to do at all, but will be extremely disappointed in himself for a brainless barge into Destro during the second half that resulted in a penalty and ruined his team’s clean sheet.
Got forward extremely well in the first half, functioning as an auxiliary winger at times. His attacking forays diminished in the second half as he was forced to do more defending.
P. De Ceglie
Whipped in a few dangerous balls from advanced positions on the left as Roma’s lack of an offensive punch allowed him to stay camped in the opposition half, though he was forced to defend more after the interval.
Dealt with whatever Roma could throw at him, and never put a foot wrong at the back in a confident display.
Slotted home an extremely confident penalty, and looked accomplished in midfield. Faster, stronger, and hungrier than his Roma counterparts, comfortable with both setting up his colleagues and breaking up play.
As soon as he buried a lovely free kick low into the bottom corner after 11 minutes, you knew it was going to be his day. He was given the freedom of the pitch to probe by Roma and took full advantage, laying on chance after chance for his teammates with his exquisite passing.
His engine was a sight to behold in this game, as he never stopped running in attack, consistently providing his team with another avenue to exploit. Unlucky not to see his name on the scoresheet after a thunderous drive that rattled the crossbar.
Constantly adopted dangerous positions across the front line and involved in almost every attack, with Balzaretti in particular finding him to be a menace. Hit the bar with an effort in the first half and came close again moments after the restart, when a great Stekelenburg save denied him a wonder-goal from distance.
He was afforded space to run into and receive the ball close to the Roma goal, and took advantage of that development in one instance when he finished past Stekelenburg to rack up his side’s third goal.
The nerves of his team seemed to extend to him, as he inspired no confidence between the posts with his shoddy handling and presence. However, he somewhat made up for it with a world-class save to stop a Vucinic bullet.
Sloppy in the wall defending Pirlo’s free-kick, and simply terrible otherwise. His lack of concentration and waifish defending made Roma seem to be playing with 10 men whenever Juventus attacked.
A valiant attempt at twice blocking an unguarded net instead ended up with him conceding a penalty for handball. He fell apart completely after that, leaving a cavernous hole in the centre of defence with some abhorrent positioning.
Carved apart time and time again with ease by a rampant Juventus attack in the first half. He was put out of his misery after only 44 minutes as Zeman hauled him off the pitch.
Completely and continuously bypassed in midfield. His attempts to break up play consisted of nothing more than a few half-hearted tackles and more than a few mix-up with the back four.
Poor in the wall alongside Burdisso for Pirlo’s goal, and was lucky to stay on the pitch after a professional foul on Marchisio on the edge of the box. Looked shockingly out of sorts along with the rest of the defence.
Gave his side some much needed thrust in the second half, and was at the heart of what little good they could muster in the attacking third.
D. De Rossi
Not a happy return to the starting lineup for the vice-captain, as he was virtually a non-factor in midfield. Breezed past by the Bianoneri machine time and time again, and was woeful when on the ball.
Involved in what little Roma could muster offensively in the first half - but not in a good way. Had he taken one of the two glorious openings that fell his way, the outcome of the match may have well be different.
The Giallorossi skipper looked his age today, and spent most of his time chasing shadows as Juventus swarmed all over his side.
Scored a confident penalty in the second half, and kept Buffon on his toes with another testing drive. A positive influence during Roma's improved second-half showing.
- 3 Marquinhos
Gave his side an outlet on the flanks after being sprung from the bench just before the break.
A little more decisive in the centre of the park than Tachtsidis, and went close with one effort.
A difficult presence for the Juventus defence to deal with after his introduction in place of Totti, typified by the way he won the Roma penalty.
