Goal.com rates the performers at Juventus Stadium as the Bianconeri ran out comfortable winners against the Granata

By Craig Turnbull

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    8

    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    Had very little to do in the match but was there when called upon saving low to deny Torino their best chance through Meggiorini in the first half.

  • Paolo De Ceglie

    3.00

    Paolo De Ceglie

    Didn't have too much to do in terms of defending and in the second half was substituted as Juve looked to put the Granata to the sword.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    8

    3.00

    Andrea Barzagli

    Looked solid and very comfortable even attempted a shot from about 40 yards, though the less said about it better.

  • Leonardo Bonucci

    3.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Another defender who had a quiet night, professional performance and dealt with trouble when he needed to.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner

    3.00

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    Could have dealt with the threat of Santana better allowed him too much room to get crosses into the box which on another day could have cost his side.

  • Paul Pogba

    3.50

    Paul Pogba

    Looked one of Juventus' brightest players, attempted a few excellent shots from long range and won his side the penalty. Generally was a nuisance to the Granata back line.

  • Claudio Marchisio

    5.00

    Claudio Marchisio Top of the Match

    An absolute superb performance from the Italy international who netted with two second-half strikes. Showed great anticipation to get on the end of a tantalising Giovinco cross and bullet a header past Gillet. Then drilled a low shot past the despairing keeper to complete the Bianconeri's night.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    9
    2
    2.50

    Andrea Pirlo

    Not his best game and perhaps looked jaded from the recent run of challenging games. Put in a couple of good deliveries and teasing balls but missed a penalty, blazing over the bar to Gillet's - and everyone's - surprise.

  • Emanuele Giaccherini
    5
    3
    2.50

    Emanuele Giaccherini

    Had an intriguing battle with D'Ambrosio before swapping over to the left-hand side where he was less effective. Looked tricky and direct at times but couldn't deliver a final telling ball when it mattered. Hooked at half-time.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    7
    2
    2.50

    Mirko Vučinić

    The striker assisted Marchisio for the Italian's second goal but will be disappointed with his overall performance as he never really tested Gillet himself.

  • Sebastian Giovinco
    9
    2
    4.00

    Sebastian Giovinco

    A stunning second-half display from the 'Atomic Ant' who was a constant thorn of the visitors defence. Put in plenty of good balls from the right and got on the scoresheet with a lovely right-foot finish. Staked his claim for a start against Shakhtar.

Substitutions

  • Kwadwo Asamoah

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Came on done well and put in a few good teasing deliveries the game was already over though and it was difficult for him to really make an impact.

  • Nicklas Bendtner
    5
    3
    2.50

    Nicklas Bendtner

    Came on at half-time and had a great chance to open his account for the Bianconeri but fired his shot straight at Gillet. Another frustrating night for the Denmark international.

  • Jean-François Gillet
    5
    2
    3.50

    Jean-François Gillet

    Despite conceding three goals, it could have been a lot more if it wasn't for a number of blocks and saves which he made. Can be pleased with his performance despite being on the losing side.

  • Danilo D'Ambrosio
    1
    2
    3.00

    Danilo D'Ambrosio

    Did well in the first half to nullify the threat of Giaccherini on the right but was up against it in the second with the visitors down to 10 and Giovinco moved to the right.

  • Angelo Ogbonna
    1
    3
    3.00

    Angelo Ogbonna

    Put in a good shift and was kept very busy throughout the 90 minutes did well with the threat of Vucinic in the first half and got in plenty of blocks but it was a backs-to-the-wall display in the second and tried his best to limit the damage.

  • Kamil Glik
    1
    4
    1.00

    Kamil Glik Flop of the Match

    Shown a red card midway through the first half for what the ref deemed a reckless challenge. He may feel slightly aggrieved as he did get the ball but it was high and dangerous. Had been a commanding presence up until then.

  • Matteo Darmian
    3
    2
    3.50

    Matteo Darmian

    The right-back did reasonably well as the hosts failed to find any joy down the left-hand side in the first half but the second proved a different story as Juve bombarded men forward.

  • Migjen Basha
    1
    2
    2.00

    Migjen Basha

    Gave away the penalty which Pirlo missed for Juve and was largely ineffective in the second half as the hosts dominated the midfield.

  • Mario Santana
    1
    2
    3.00

    Mario Santana

    Started promisingly, providing a lot of width to Torino and created a couple of chances but couldn't really get into the match in the second.

  • Alessio Cerci
    1
    2
    2.00

    Alessio Cerci

    Looked lively in the first half for the visitors, sprayed some lovely passes about and made it difficult for the Juve defence as he got himself into some promising positions. The turning point was the red card though and he had a very quiet game after that.

  • Alessandro Gazzi
    1
    2
    2.50

    Alessandro Gazzi

    Like his team-mate Basha, he really struggled in the second half as Juve came forward time and time again. Could not provide any attacks either.

  • Rolando Bianchi
    1
    2
    2.50

    Rolando Bianchi

    Sacrificed in the second half as Torino looked to limit the damage the hosts could do. Had an attempt in the first 45 but was largely anonymous throughout.

Substitutions

  • Valerio Di Cesare
    1
    2
    2.00

    Valerio Di Cesare

    Came on after Glik was shown a red card was always going to be a difficult night for the substitute and so it proved up against the lively Giovinco.

  • Alen Stevanovic
    1
    2
    2.50

    Alen Stevanovic

    Came on for Bianchi but hardly got a sniff of goal as Torino struggled to provide the service to the striker.
