Could have been a little more assertive one the goal; otherwise, not much to do.
Could not be faulted much for his performance at the back. Let one or two attacks pass him by, but made up for it with some otherwise determined defensive play.
Involved in the decisive moment of the game, as he came off second best against Giovinco when challenging for a cross and ended up sliding the ball into his own net.
Produced one fantastic clearance to block a dangerous cross from Lichtsteiner and generally held his own at the back. Did not often find an opportunity to get forward an support Shakhtar on the counter, though.
Beaten far too many times defensively, as his shoddy positioning was all to easy for Juve to exploit. Should have tracked back a lot better.
A bit of a non-factor in midfield as he did not do much to stop Juve controlling the second half, and was also uninspiring when on the ball.
Gave his team a few moments of thrust and directness when he broke with the ball from his own half. His pace was difficult to deal with and he won his side a fair number of free kicks.
Try as he might, the Armenian could not make much happen in attack. Broke clear on one occasion, but steered his shot wide. Below-par overall.
A deterrent for the Juventus midfield as he was able to step in and make a number of tackles to disrupt play, while showing the ability to advance the ball forward as well. An underrated display.
Eduardo Da Silva
Virtually anonymous, as he barely got a sniff on goal. The Juve defence marked him well - the amount of touches he got on the ball could have probably been counted on one hand.
Apart from one ballooned shot from close range, he offered his team little in the way of an attacking threat and was replaced in the second half.
Never forced to display his best, as Shakhtar's lack of clear chances meant that he was a spectator for most of the match. But he was a commanding presence throughout.
Won virtually everything thrown his way in the air and hardly put a foot wrong when defending on the ground. Shakhtar found him a very difficult opponent to get past whenever they attacked the Juve goal.
Stood firm alongside the rest of the Juventus back three and rarely look troubled by the infrequent pressure Shakhtar put on his goal. Did what he had to do with little fuss.
Looked to snuff out danger as soon as it appeared and generally took a no-nonsense approach to getting rid of the ball in dangerous areas. Extremely committed at the back and stuck to his task very well.
Got forward on occasion and was able to put in a few testing deliveries into the opposition penalty area. One such delivery ended up making the difference, as Kucher was forced to bundle into his own net for the only goal of the game.
Mopped up loose ends extremely well in midfield, as he was incredibly successful in harrying opposition players into mistakes or rushed passes. His play was one of the main reasons that Shakhtar failed to create anything meaningful for most of the game. Had one or two cracks at goal, too, but his accuracy let him down.
Solid, if unspectacular, as he took few risks when advancing into the opposition half, while tracking back well to help out the defence.
Solid in possession and picked his moments to surge into the attacking third to good effect. A mature performance that belied his tender years.
Became more and more influential in the second half after a fairly subdued opening 45 minutes. Clipped the post with a low shot from the edge of the box and was afforded more space to display his range of passing.
Linked well with Giovinco at times and gave his side a good outlet up front. His hold up play was hugely important, as it afforded Juventus a focal point to build their attacks around.
Buzzed about with a lot of energy in attack, but after missing a good first half chance, it looked not to be his day. However, he never let his head drop and his determination was important in forcing an own goal off Kucher.
