It was not really a busy evening for the captain but he made a terrific stop from Denis early on that was pretty crucial in the context of the game.
Was his no-nonsense self. A rather comfortable afternoon at the back for the Italy international, who, along with Chiellini, minimised the impact of the towering Denis.
Laid off the pass to Marchisio, from which he went on to score. Matched the threat of Denis and covered well for Marrone. A typcially unassuming, robust and dominant display by Chiellini.
The Swiss worked hard throughout. Although, he would have liked to have made more of an impact from an attacking perspective in a game that his side dominated. However, he was asked to play a more defensive role in the second half and he did his job well.
Clearly wanted to get in on the scoring, as he tested Consigli a couple of times in the first half. Was tidy on the ball, as ever, while defensively not much got past him. Should have scored in the final minute with the goal gaping.
As combative as ever in the middle of the park and once again displayed his scoring nous with a finely hit goal. Interchanged positions with ease with his team-mates and was no less comfortable when later asked to play on the left side of midfield. Another great all-round display.
Nothing spectacular from the Ghanaian. Along with Chiellini, he kept Atalanta at bay down the left flank. Got forward on occasion. Did a good job when put at left-back later on.
The youngster’s slip let in Denis for a one-on-one with Buffon. A little unsure at times, but, looked more comfortable when Juve switched to a back four and Chiellini joined him in the centre.
An absolute gem of a goal from a free kick. Was at his majestic best as he once again ran proceedings with his range of passing. Got stuck in defensively, too. A top display from the Italian legend.
Provided the assist for Vucinic’s opener. Was dangerous throughout the contest. Tried in vain to get on the score board, but, bottled a number of chances, particularly in the second period. Still, an impressive performance even if he forgot his shooting boots.
Opened the scoring with a expertly taken strike within minutes of the kick off. Linked up well with Giovinco and always looked a threat. Taken off for Quagliarella on the hour.
Perhaps it is slightly harsh, but may have done more to stop Marchisio’s goal. However, he had an excellent second half as he frustrated Giovinco and his team-mates time and time again.
A nervy start from the captain, whose slip allowed Vucinic on to score the opening goal. His afternoon did not improve all that much as the game wore on.
He undeniably improved after the break as he did his best to limit the damage, but he was guilty of allowing Marchisio far too much space to line up his goal.
Perhaps the best of the Atalanta defence, though that is not saying much. Limited the threat of Lichtsteiner in the opening stages but was overrun by the Swiss, and later Padoin. Rarely got forward.
Was defensively poor for the half hour he did play. Got himself two deserving yellow cards in the space of 60 seconds to make it nigh impossible for his team already three down by this stage to get anything from the game. His team-mates deserve an apology for his stupidity.
Completely overshadowed in the center of the park. Was withdrawn at the break, which came as little surprise.
His pace proved threating at times. Tried to link up with Denis at every opportunity but he was subbed before half-time as Stefano Colantuono rejigged things following the red card.
As ever, he sprayed the passes about from the centre. But, along with his teammates, he was outfought and outclassed by Pirlo, Marchisio and Vidal. Subbed in the second half after picking up a knock.
It was a tough outing for the diminutive Argentine. Had the pace and trickery to create for the visitors, but, Juve kept him quiet rather too easily.
Not his best display, though you can say that about the rest of his team, too. Was forced into a more defensive role following Manfredini’s red card. Still tried to get forward, but was outmatched by Asamoah. Giaccherini also caused him problems later on. In truth, an afternoon he’d rather forget.
Fluffed early chance to equalise following a defensive mistake. It proved vital as Juve went on to score three. With his side down a man, the service dried up in what was a frustrating outing for the Argentine.
Like Giaccherini, conditions allowed him to get forward often. Got the better of Peluso far too easily on occasion.
Introduced for Vucinic and registered three shots as he looked to extend Juve’s lead.
Came on with Juve coasting. It enabled him to get forward on occasion down the left wing and he did cause problems for Atalanta. Had Juve’s strikers been more accurate, might have got an assist.
Came on to sure up things defensively for the visitors. And, given that Juve did not score a goal while he was on the field he deserves some credit.
Sent on in place of Radovanovic to cover for the sent-off Manfredini in the centre of defence. Juve still continued to carve opportunities at will with his introduction.
Came on for the last 15 minutes and had no impact on the game.
