Goal.com rates the players on a dramatic morning in the Stadio Via del Mare....

By Andrew McLean

  • Antonio Rosati

    3.00

    Antonio Rosati

    Barely called into action all afternoon but did what was required between the sticks.

  • Davide Brivio
    5
    1
    3.00

    Davide Brivio

    Gave the visitors an early warning with a good cross in the third minute and was left free after the removal of Krasic to push forward in support.

  • Fabiano
    4
    1
    3.50

    Fabiano

    Dealt with the threat of Del Piero, Matri and Iaquinta, kept himself quiet and stuck to his duties.

  • Stefano Ferrario
    5
    2
    3.50

    Stefano Ferrario

    Did just enough to hold off Toni in the eighth minute and stayed close to the striker. Stuck together as a unit with Fabiano and frustrated Juve.

  • Giulio Donati
    2
    0
    3.00

    Giulio Donati

    Like his fellow full-back, Donati was allowed more freedom with the sending-off and Juve switching to a central three in midfield. Made a good interception in the 25th minute to stop Matri breaking free.

  • Carlos Grossmüller
    5
    1
    3.00

    Carlos Grossmüller

    Continues to impress for the Lupi, his build-up play was excellent and the Uruguayan was clearly disappointed he didn't hit the target in the 37th minute and then twice in the second period. Supplied Mesbah with a pass in the 43rd which almost led to a second goal.

  • Gianni Munari
    5
    1
    3.00

    Gianni Munari

    The culprit of a poor pass on the break in the 29th minute but made up for it with the assist for Mesbah two minutes later.

  • Giuseppe Vives
    4
    1
    3.00

    Giuseppe Vives

    Thwarted the attacks of Juventus time and again and came close with a well executed volley just before half-time. The captain was booked twice in quick succession on his way to an early bath. Fortunately for him, it didn't effect the final result.

  • Djamel Mesbah
    9
    3
    3.50

    Djamel Mesbah Top of the Match

    Blasted a real chance over the bar with ten minutes gone but made up for it with his finish in the 31st to give Lecce the lead. Tested Storari again in the 43rd minute.

  • Andrea Bertolacci
    9
    1
    3.50

    Andrea Bertolacci

    Scored the vital second goal which gave his side a much needed cushion towards the end of the match.

  • David Di Michele
    1
    1
    3.50

    David Di Michele

    Timed his running in behind Barzagli well and created the chance early on which led to Buffon being sent-off. Knocked down a header for a nice assist for the second goal but had to be removed shortly after due to injury.

Substitutions

  • Andrea Rispoli
    1
    0
    0.00

    Andrea Rispoli

    A late substitution to make sure there were no late slips for his side.

  • Manuel Coppola

    N/A

  • Ernesto Javier Chevantón

    1
    3.00

    Ernesto Javier Chevantón

    Showed pace and skill to get away from Bonucci in the 67th minute and came very close to adding a third for the Salentini.

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    17
    38
    2.50

    Gianluigi Buffon

    Forced to come off his line in the second minute to clear for his side but the second time he had to do so, the 'keeper handled outside the box and was sent-off.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    19
    18
    2.00

    Giorgio Chiellini Flop of the Match

    The pick of a poor pack of defenders on the day. Made a good block to deny a dangerous cross from Munari in the 29th minute. Still hasn't quite fully settled back down into his former left-back role.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    15
    24
    2.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Out of position and slow to react to balls played over the top, an afternoon to forget for the centre-back.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    12
    34
    2.00

    Andrea Barzagli

    Failed to keep tabs on Di Michele's run for Buffon's sending-off. Out of position for the first goal and marking was a shambles for the second. A dreadful afternoon for Juve and an abysmal one for the defender.

  • Frederik Sorensen
    19
    17
    2.00

    Frederik Sorensen

    The young full-back was also caught out far too often, failing to track the run of Mesbah for the first goal and Di Michele pulled wide to the left to make the most of his inexperience.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    16
    12
    2.50

    Claudio Marchisio

    Woeful control in the 48th minute inside his own penalty area caused concerns but the midfielder battled back to win back the ball. A largely ineffective day. Tried his luck in the second-half with a shot from distance but it was well off target.

  • Felipe Melo
    10
    32
    2.50

    Felipe Melo

    The Brazilian struggled to make a contribution going forward or back for the Bianconeri, as Lecce cut his side open.

  • Alberto Aquilani
    18
    22
    2.50

    Alberto Aquilani

    Some nice range of passing almost squeezing in Matri in the 27th minute and then finding Iaquinta in the 65th with the pass of the day but lacked any cutting edge. Swung and missed at a cross just before half-time.

  • Milos Krasic
    11
    20
    0.00

    Milos Krasic

    Replaced very early to allow 'keeper Storari to come on to fill-in for Buffon.

  • Alessandro Matri
    16
    18
    2.50

    Alessandro Matri

    Marshalled far too easily and his runs were predictable. A very different feeling to the one he finished last week's game with. Matri did supply a good cross to Del Piero in the 58th minute.

  • Luca Toni
    15
    25
    2.50

    Luca Toni

    Had the first shot of the game with only a matter of seconds gone and looked lively for a short spell. A nice turn and pass in the 47th minute almost found the run of Marchisio.

Substitutions

  • Marco Storari
    18
    7
    2.50

    Marco Storari

    Replaced Buffon and was left helpless by his defence for both goals. Made a decent save from Mesbah in the 43rd minute and a superb block on Grossmuller.

  • Vincenzo Iaquinta
    4
    34
    2.50

    Vincenzo Iaquinta

    Added more presence in attack for the Old Lady. Sent a header just wide from a corner in the 84th minute.

  • Alessandro Del Piero
    31
    16
    2.50

    Alessandro Del Piero

    Showed more composure on the ball in attack than Juve had throughout the whole team in the first-half. His skill allowed him to turn and face the defenders but his best chance came in the form of a header which he sent wide.
