Player Ratings: Juventus 4-2 Napoli

The Bianconeri won a fifth Supercoppa crown after the dismissals of Goran Pandev, Camilo Zuniga and Walter Mazzari left the Coppa Italia winners short-handed

By Giorgio Buongiorno

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    9

    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    Pulled off a great save from Cavani’s first effort but could do nothing about the follow up, and was similarly not at fault for the second.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    5

    2.50

    Leonardo Bonucci

    His error led to Napoli’s second goal just when Juve had got a foothold in the game, and then he handed a great chance to Cavani.

  • Lúcio

    2.50

    Lúcio

    Looked uncomfortable for long spells of the game, especially thanks to Cavani’s pace, and was at fault for the first goal when trying to play the Uruguayan offside in the opponents’ half.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    5
    0
    3.50

    Andrea Barzagli

    Looked a little ill at ease playing more to the left that usual in the absence of Chiellini, but coped reasonably well compared to his defensive team-mates.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    5
    0
    2.50

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    Got down the right an awful lot before being replaced by Simone Padoin after setting yellow for getting involved in an argument.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    6
    0
    3.50

    Claudio Marchisio

    Provided a superb touch for Vucinic to wrap up the victory having been a great influence from the left of the midfield three.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    5
    0
    3.00

    Andrea Pirlo

    Didn’t quite dominate the midfield in the same way as he often did last season, but he was still instrumental and tested De Sanctis from a free kick.

  • Arturo Vidal
    7
    0
    4.00

    Arturo Vidal

    His magnificent crossfield ball picked out Asamoah for Juventus’ first goal of the game, then he grabbed the second from the spot, and he was once more the hardest working of Juve’s midfielders.

  • Kwadwo Asamoah
    6
    0
    3.50

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Was one of Juve’s star players from the opening whistle, and delivered a magnificent strike to put his new side level from outside the area.

  • Sebastian Giovinco
    6
    1
    3.00

    Sebastian Giovinco

    Started very well, keeping Napoli’s defence guessing for long spells with his movement. Faded a little in the second period.

  • Alessandro Matri
    4
    2
    1.50

    Alessandro Matri

    Substituted at half time having had done little to make an impact on the proceedings.

Substitutions

  • Simone Padoin
    4
    0
    2.50

    Simone Padoin

    Replaced Lichtsteiner and helped Juve keep the ball off Napoli’s nine men for long spells.

  • Emanuele Giaccherini
    4
    0

    Emanuele Giaccherini

    Late sub for Giovinco.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    9
    0
    4.50

    Mirko Vučinić

    Made all the difference after coming on as substitute, occupying the Napoli back line in a way which Matri had found impossible, and got the final goal as a reward.

  • Morgan De Sanctis
    0
    1
    2.00

    Morgan De Sanctis

    Suspect on the first goal as Asamoah’s fierce shot skidded off the wet surface and beat him at the near post, then he came and missed a free kick as Juve went ahead through Maggio’s own goal.

  • Hugo Campagnaro
    0
    0
    2.50

    Hugo Campagnaro

    Kept Matri quiet throughout the first half, but struggled once Vucinic entered the fray at half time.

  • Miguel Angel Britos
    0
    0
    2.50

    Miguel Angel Britos

    Looked to be a more than adequate replacement for Aronica at first, but struggled more as the game went on.

  • Paolo Cannavaro
    1
    0
    2.50

    Paolo Cannavaro

    Made one fantastic clearance after De Sanctis had been beaten all ends up, and made a couple of excellent tackles, but he was booked and then replaced by Fernandez.

  • Christian Maggio
    1
    0
    1.50

    Christian Maggio

    Was unfortunate to score an own goal as the 10 men fell behind for the first time, but that came after he’d allowed Asamoah time and space to volley home the first goal, and he looked short of fitness for long spells.

  • Gökhan Inler
    1
    0
    3.00

    Gökhan Inler

    Patrolled the midfield well, with some neat first-time passes helping to put Napoli in good positions, feeding Pandev and Cavani almost at will while their side still had 11 men.

  • Marek Hamsik
    1
    0
    3.00

    Marek Hamsik

    Had the superiority ahead of the midfield battle at times in the first half, helping to keep Pirlo quiet, but he couldn’t keep up that side of his game, and he was later replaced.

  • Valon Behrami
    1
    0
    3.00

    Valon Behrami

    Worked hard from start to finish, proving to be one of Napoli’s more reliable players on the day. The Azzurri may have found one of the forces they’ve missed at times previously.

  • Camilo Zúñiga
    1
    0
    2.00

    Camilo Zúñiga

    Saw red for a second bookable offence to leave his side with nine men having made a useful contribution before then.

  • Edinson Cavani
    2
    0
    4.00

    Edinson Cavani

    Kept his head to slot Napoli ahead after Buffon had stretched out to deny him a tap-in, and remained the Azzurri’s main threat throughout.

  • Goran Pandev
    3
    0
    3.00

    Goran Pandev

    Lifted a superb effort over the advancing Buffon after robbing Bonucci to put Napoli back in front, but was later sent off for foul and abusive language.

Substitutions

  • Andrea Dossena
    0
    1

    Andrea Dossena

    Late introduction.

  • Federico Fernández
    1
    0
    1.50

    Federico Fernández

    Came on for Cannavaro, but couldn’t match the club captain’s workrate, fouling Vucinic to hand Juventus a penalty which helped change the game.

  • Walter Gargano
    1
    0
    2.00

    Walter Gargano

    Replaced Hamsik and became something of a second attacker at times after his side was reduced to nine men, breaking from midfield to support the isolated Cavani.
