Pulled off a great save from Cavani’s first effort but could do nothing about the follow up, and was similarly not at fault for the second.
His error led to Napoli’s second goal just when Juve had got a foothold in the game, and then he handed a great chance to Cavani.
Looked a little ill at ease playing more to the left that usual in the absence of Chiellini, but coped reasonably well compared to his defensive team-mates.
Got down the right an awful lot before being replaced by Simone Padoin after setting yellow for getting involved in an argument.
Looked uncomfortable for long spells of the game, especially thanks to Cavani’s pace, and was at fault for the first goal when trying to play the Uruguayan offside in the opponents’ half.
Was one of Juve’s star players from the opening whistle, and delivered a magnificent strike to put his new side level from outside the area.
Didn’t quite dominate the midfield in the same way as he often did last season, but he was still instrumental and tested De Sanctis from a free kick.
His magnificent crossfield ball picked out Asamoah for Juventus’ first goal of the game, then he grabbed the second from the spot, and he was once more the hardest working of Juve’s midfielders.
Provided a superb touch for Vucinic to wrap up the victory having been a great influence from the left of the midfield three.
Started very well, keeping Napoli’s defence guessing for long spells with his movement. Faded a little in the second period.
Substituted at half time having had done little to make an impact on the proceedings.
M. De Sanctis
Suspect on the first goal as Asamoah’s fierce shot skidded off the wet surface and beat him at the near post, then he came and missed a free kick as Juve went ahead through Maggio’s own goal.
Was unfortunate to score an own goal as the 10 men fell behind for the first time, but that came after he’d allowed Asamoah time and space to volley home the first goal, and he looked short of fitness for long spells.
Looked to be a more than adequate replacement for Aronica at first, but struggled more as the game went on.
Kept Matri quiet throughout the first half, but struggled once Vucinic entered the fray at half time.
Made one fantastic clearance after De Sanctis had been beaten all ends up, and made a couple of excellent tackles, but he was booked and then replaced by Fernandez.
Saw red for a second bookable offence to leave his side with nine men having made a useful contribution before then.
Worked hard from start to finish, proving to be one of Napoli’s more reliable players on the day. The Azzurri may have found one of the forces they’ve missed at times previously.
Patrolled the midfield well, with some neat first-time passes helping to put Napoli in good positions, feeding Pandev and Cavani almost at will while their side still had 11 men.
Had the superiority ahead of the midfield battle at times in the first half, helping to keep Pirlo quiet, but he couldn’t keep up that side of his game, and he was later replaced.
Kept his head to slot Napoli ahead after Buffon had stretched out to deny him a tap-in, and remained the Azzurri’s main threat throughout.
Lifted a superb effort over the advancing Buffon after robbing Bonucci to put Napoli back in front, but was later sent off for foul and abusive language.
Came on for Cannavaro, but couldn’t match the club captain’s workrate, fouling Vucinic to hand Juventus a penalty which helped change the game.
Replaced Hamsik and became something of a second attacker at times after his side was reduced to nine men, breaking from midfield to support the isolated Cavani.
