On one hand, Andujar's feeble attempt to stop Krasic's shot allowed the away side to equalize. On the other, however, he pulled off some very solid saves, including one to block a fantastic Pepe shot destined for the top corner.
There is not much to say about a player who was substituted in the 28th minute, but he put in a very solid shift up until he was taken off due to injury.
A key member of the backline which kept Alessandro Matri so quiet. His 38h minute tackle on the striker epitomised his defensive prowess.
Out of all the Catania players, he stood out perhaps the least. He had neither a poor game nor a good one but turned in a mediocre shift instead.
The captain appeared often throughout the pitch but was not always instrumental or influential on the match. He was also booked for taking down Krasic.
One of the best players on the pitch. He was simply everywhere and often tortured Fabio Grosso. He faded as the match progressed, however.
Stuck to Vincenzo Montella's gameplan very well but failed to make the most of the chances that fell his way and was often guilty of poor decision making.
One of the more invisible players. He was cautioned for fouling Vidal, and kicked the player in the face later in the match.
Yet another player who ran tirelessly during the match and nearly won it at the very end for his side. He gave the ball away fairly frequently, however, blemishing his performance.
The frontman ran tirelessly to aid his side, often coming back to help with defence whenever the away team had possession. He came close to scoring himself in the 30th minute.
Superman still appears to be a long way off his best. He did well to smother situations that his defence let get out of hand but looked far from comfortable, as illustrated by his awkward punch clearance in the 25th minute.
The centre-back was partially culpable for the goal as he failed to notice Bergessio gaining speed behind him. He also nearly gifted a goal to Suazo with four minutes remaining. Otherwise however it was a solid shift from the Italian international.
A rather solid showing from the summer acquisition. He made a silly error in the 58th minute but overall did very well to cover his flank.
Consistently roasted by Gomez time and time again. He adds offensive input to Juventus but at his age, and lack of defensive-minded ability, may cost them more at the back.
Barzagli's poor covering led directly to the Catania goal, when he was simply outpaced by Bergassio. Like Chiellini, he was mostly solid but with a few moments of madness that could have costed his side dearly.
He missed a fair few chances and gave away possession cheaply at times. The talent is certainly there, but, perhaps, he works better as a substitute for the time being.
Slightly better than Pirlo, he was more visible but skied a great opportunity on the 60th minute to undermine his reputation as a clutch goalscorer.
One of the best performers of the match. Krasic was involved in nearly every good piece of offensive play Juventus put together, and his goal allowed the side to take a point in a tough away battle.
Pirlo was shackled by Catania's tireless running, as Montella seemed to figure out a game plan to silence the ageing midfielder.
The Dutchman had a poor debut and was rightly substituted at half-time, after being wasteful down his flank and failing to control many of the passes sent his way.
A very frustrating game for the striker, who often had little service and was stifled the second he received the ball.

Marchese came on to replace the injured Alvarez and did a great job keeping Eljero Elia quiet. He struggled to do the same to Simone Pepe, however.
The midfielder came on late in the match but reinvigorated a tiring midfield to keep Montella's gameplan intact. He could be found nearly everywhere during his shift.
He only played the last 10 minutes but left his mark with a rough foul on Andrea Barzagli, while nearly capitalizing on a mistake from Giorgio Chiellini late in the match.

Pepe came on for Elia and did a much better job on the flank in both attack and defence. His work-rate is unparalleled in the side.

The player had less than ten minutes and his only notable contribution was giving away a free kick. Nevertheless, Conte will be pleased that he is finally fit after a long injury nightmare.
A. Del Piero
The captain had less than 20 minutes to play and had a rather average showing, failing to use his creative ability to snatch a victory.
