M. De Sanctis
Given no chance by Chiellini for the opener but kept his side in the game by coming out on top in a pivotal one-on-one with Vucinic. Also did well to parry a searing strike from Vucinic away to safety.
Drafted into the defence in place of Alessandro Gamberini and was caught out badly for the game's opening goal, allowing Chiellini to get the jump on him. Involved in a sickening collision with Inler not long after so it was only wise that Mazzarri removed him at the break.
Did not put a foot wrong at the back for the Partenopei and was also never afraid to step out of defense.
A disciplined defensive display, save one reckless lunge on Lichsteiner that earned him a booking.
Did a fine job keeping Lichsteiner reasonably quiet. Attacked when he could, too, even occasionally popping up in central attacking positions.
Not quite as eye-catching as Inler in the Napoli engine room but played a key role in upsetting Juve's much-vaunted midfield trio. Passing was crisp and accurate, releasing Hamsik into space in the lead up to the Insigne chance with one particularly nice ball.
Flirted with disaster by bundling Lichsteiner off the ball in the area but offered Napoli plenty of drive and determination in the middle of the park and his industry was rewarded with a fortuitous deflection off the head off Bonucci just before the break. Continued to cause problems with his powerful runs from midfield throughout the second half.
A threat right from the off, even if his first two strikes on goal were dreadfully wayward. Fared much better with a low drive at the start of the second half that Buffon did well to push around the post. It was another Hamsik strike that resulted in the rebound that Insigne really should have buried. Overall, Napoli's best attacker.
Pegged Peluso back inside his own half and caused problems every time he got in behind. Indeed, he whipped over one sublime cross that an in-form Cavani would have done better with.
Got the nod ahead of Insigne and started well, barging his way past Chiellini inside the opening 15 seconds to set up a chance for Hamsik. However, he was a passenger for the remainder of his time on the field.
Another outing without a goal for the Uruguayan, whose obvious frustration at being marked out of the game manifested itself in a quite brutal forearm smash into the face of Chiellini. Incredibly lucky to have stayed on the field and it would have felt wrong if he'd decided the game in Napoli's favor by heading home Maggio's cross late on.
Had actually had very little to do before being cruelly beaten by Inler's deflected shot from distance. However, he made three fine stops during what was a far busier second half for the Bianconeri defense
What a game! A fitness doubt beforehand, Chiellini looked a little vulnerable early on, getting out-muscled by Pandev just seconds after the kickoff. But he quickly got himself back up to speed and made a crucial sliding tackle to cut out Hamsike's through-ball for Cavani. His goal, meanwhile, was wonderfully taken.
Played the pass of the game, splitting the Napoli defense with a stunning ball from deep inside his own half which really should have ended with Vucinic scoring Juve's second. From a defensive perspective, kept Cavani very quiet.
Did not do anywhere near as much damage down the right wing as he usually does, primarily due to the presence of Zuniga. His crossing was particularly poor.
Distribution was a tad erratic at times but did a fine job in ensuring that Napoli got nothing going down their left-hand side. Indeed, was coolness personified throughout, as exemplified by the way in which he dealt with an awkward cross from the right while under pressure from Cavani.
Did not offer anything like the same attacking thrust as Lichsteiner on the opposite flank but still managed a couple of rampaging runs. However, struggled at times to get to grips with Maggio and was also booked for a stupid foul on the edge of his own area.
The veteran playmaker had already set about supressing Napoli's bright start when he crossed for Chiellini to break the deadlock. Continued to dictate the tempo thereafter, even during what was a far more uncomfortable second period for Juve.
Put in some terrific tackles and also broke forward supremely well, creating two wonderful chances for Vucinic. However, faded after the break.
Did not carry the same attacking threat as per usual, but worked tirelessly. Indeed, his performance was best summed up by the way in which he raced back to regain possession for his side in midfield after being caught offside in the Napoli area seconds before.
Fired a shot straight down De Sanctis' throat some seven minutes but rarely threatened thereafter. Created openings for Vucinic and also worked hard defensively, doing enough to put off Hamsik when the Slovak was shaping to shoot in the area. But then, that's not what he's picked for.
Dropped deep to good effect at times early on, holding the ball up well and creating time and space for others with characteristically deft lay-offs. However, his finishing continues to let him down, with the Montenegrin wasting a glorious chance to double Juve's lead midway through the first half.
Came on for the dazed and confused Britos during the interval but did not make much of an impact.
Replaced the ineffective Pandev midway through the second half and offered a far greater attacking threat. Still, he really should have scored when Buffon parried the ball into his path.
