Goal.com was on hand to cast a critical eye over events at Stadio Adriatico as the Bianconeri dominated the Delfini to move four points clear

By Keeghann Sinanan

    Mattia Perin

    Utterly helpless, as all of Juve's goals were extremely well taken.

  • Damiano Zanon

    Damiano Zanon

    Put in a crucial tackle to halt Quagliarella on one Juve attack, and offered his team occasional moments of directness on the right flank.

  • Marco Capuano

    Marco Capuano

    Run utterly ragged by Juventus, time and time again. Simply no way for him to cope with the relentless pressure on his goal.

  • Francesco Modesto

    2.00

    Francesco Modesto

    Gave his team absolutely nothing on the left wing, and spent most of his time isolated and dropping deeper and deeper into his own half.

  • Antonio Bocchetti

    Antonio Bocchetti

    Taken apart with embarrassing ease by Giovinco on more than one occasion. Never looked at all confident in defence.

  • Uros Cosic

    Uros Cosic Flop of the Match

    Lost sight of Vidal and Quagliarella for two of Juve's goals. Appeared as clueless as the rest of Pescara's defence when dealing with the Bianconeri.

  • Emmanuel Cascione
    0

    3.50

    Emmanuel Cascione

    Headed in the only goal of the game for the home side, and nearly repeated the trick with another header that sent Buffon scrambling. His was one of the few heads that did not drop.

  • J. Quintero

    1
    2.50

    J. Quintero

    Hit the woodwork with one attempt, but was otherwise as anonymous as his rating suggests in the middle of the park. Never came close to stopping the Juve machine.

  • M. Nielsen

    M. Nielsen

    His cross to set up Cascione's goal was about the only positive thing to come from his performance. A few brief moments in the second half, but it all came way too late.

  • Elvis Abbruscato

    Elvis Abbruscato

    Isolated and largely unused up front. A thankless task for him given the situation his team found themselves in by half-time.

  • Jonathas

    1.50

    Jonathas

    No chance for him to even dream of making an impact, as all the players who might have given him service were busy making sure that Juve's goal haul did not reach double figures.

Substitutions

  • Vladimir Weiss

    Vladimir Weiss

    Offered little for his side after coming on as a substitute.

  • Ante Vukušić

    Ante Vukušić

    Could do nothing to stem the tide of Juve's dominance.

  • Gianluca Caprari

    2.50

    Gianluca Caprari

    Forced to work hard after coming off the bench, often seen chasing shadows.

  • Gianluigi Buffon

    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    One or two smart saves, but nothing out of the ordinary for Buffon. Perhaps slightly disappointed with conceding, though it was a well placed goal.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    7
    0
    3.00

    Giorgio Chiellini

    Mostly quiet on the defensive front, as Chiellini was left with very little outside of routine defensive tasks. Never looked rattled, though.

  • Andrea Barzagli

    0
    3.50

    Andrea Barzagli

    Marked Abbuscato completely out of the game and was alert to thwart whatever little Pescara could throw his way.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    7

    3.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Games such as this will never be a true test of his credentials, but he did what he had to do with little fuss.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    9
    0
    4.00

    Claudio Marchisio

    Terrier-like stuff in the middle of the park, as he handled a lot of the dirty work with so many of his colleagues involved in attacking play. Blocked a surefire Pescara goal from a corner with his body on the goal-line.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    10
    0
    3.50

    Andrea Pirlo

    With the likes of Vidal, Marchisio and especially Giovinco handling the bulk of the playmaking, Pirlo never had to step out of second gear, and spent most of the game spraying simple passes to his more dynamic team-mates, while holding a deep position to help shield the defence. Set up one of Quagliarella’s goals from a corner.

  • Kwadwo Asamoah

    4.50

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Found himself in plenty of advanced positions, and took full advantage, dragging the Pescara midfield out of position with his surging runs. Scored Juve’s third with a sublime overhead kick from close range. His athleticism and stamina were a key asset for the Bianconeri.

  • Arturo Vidal
    9
    0
    4.50

    Arturo Vidal

    A box-to-box display of the highest pedigree, as he showed plenty of bite in midfield while picking his moments to get forward extremely well. Opened the scoring in just such a manner, with a great run and finish, before setting up one of Quagliarella's goals with a Pirlo-esque ball from his own half.

  • Mauricio Isla
    8
    0
    3.00

    Mauricio Isla

    Assisted Quagliarella's first with a fine delivery into the box, and spent most of his time camped in the opposition half as Juve just kept attacking.

  • Sebastian Giovinco
    10
    0
    4.50

    Sebastian Giovinco

    Took on the mantle of chief playmaker tonight, with an all-encompassing display in the attacking third. His first touch and quick feet were a nightmare for Pescara to deal with, and he set up the opener for Vidal with a fantastic pass, before scoring an equally brilliant volley of his own.

  • Fabio Quagliarella

    5.00

    Fabio Quagliarella Top of the Match

    On a team full of world-class performances on the night, his was the star that shone brightest. His first two goals were quick-thinking finishes of the highest quality, and he played a great give-and-go to set up Giovinco’s goal - all in the first half. Still, the best moment came early in the second period - an acrobatic volley right out of the top draw straight from Pirlo’s corner. Simply fantastic.

Substitutions

  • Simone Padoin

    Simone Padoin

    Found things really simple in his spell on the pitch. Never challenged.

  • Luca Marrone

    Luca Marrone

    A few nice touches after coming on.

  • Nicklas Bendtner

    3.00

    Nicklas Bendtner

    Came on for the latter stages but by then, Juve had decided to slow the tempo so he saw little in the way of goalmouth action. Still tried to get involved.
