    Andrea Barzagli

    He rarely put a foot wrong in the Juventus defence and allowed Higuain very little time on the ball as well as making a number of important tackles and interceptions.

    Leonardo Bonucci

    The centre-back produced some wonderful Pirlo-esque passes to stretch the Napoli defence and was denied a goal by a fantastic reflex save from Reina.

    The Chilean epitomised his side's spirit with a tireless box-to-box performance. Broke up play effectively and provided the assist for Pogba's stunner.

    4.50

    Carlos Tévez

    The Argentine striker continues to impress in the Bianconeri jersey and although he did not get on the scoresheet, he was a constant thorn in the Partenopei defence with his intelligent movement and abillity to find a team-mate in tight situations.

  • Fernando Llorente
    4
    0
    4.00

    Fernando Llorente

    After rescuing a point with a late header against Real Madrid in midweek, the Spanish striker got on the scoresheet again when he reacted well to poke the ball home at the back post.

    Claudio Marchisio

    Came on with minutes to spare as Vidal picked up a slight knock. Did not have enough time to make an impact.

  • Fabio Quagliarella

    0

    Fabio Quagliarella

    The former Napoli striker enjoyed a few minutes late on but with his side down to 10 men, he could not demonstrate his attacking capabilities.

    3.50

    Pepe Reina

    Kept his side in the contest by making two wonderful saves to deny Bonucci and Llorente in the first half but was helpless to prevent any of the goals.

    Raúl Albiol

    The centre-back struggled to deal with Llorente's physical presence and was caught out on several occasions.

    Christian Maggio

    The right-back struggled to get forward to aid the attack although did a good job to restrict Asamoah's impact.

  • Marek Hamsik

    2.00

    Marek Hamsik

    The captain showed glimpses of his quality with some clever through balls but did not influence the game as much as he would have liked and missed a good chance to level the scores.

  • Valon Behrami

    2.00

    Gökhan Inler

    Battled bravely in the heart of midfield and was burdened with the task of stifling Tevez when the Argentine dropped deep, which he did to good effect.

  • José Callejón

    José Callejón Flop of the Match

    A rather anonymous performance from the former Real Madrid attacker who struggled to get on the ball and show his quality.

  • Gonzalo Higuaín

    2.50

    Gonzalo Higuaín

    Aside from one good opening he fashioned for himself in the first half, Higuain was given little space by the Juventus defence and was well marshaled throughout.

  • Lorenzo Insigne

    3.50

    Lorenzo Insigne

    He was Napoli's brightest spark and caused Barzagli problems when cutting in from the left. The future looks bright for the Italy international who forced his international colleague Buffon into several smart saves.

    3.00

    Dries Mertens

    Came on to replace Callejon and although he was responsible for Ogbonna's dismissal and gave Napoli a more direct attacking threat, he could not break down the Juventus defence.

    Duván Zapata

    The striker was introduced late on but had little time or service to make his mark.
