Player Ratings: Juventus 4-0 Lazio

Goal was on hand to rate the players as Stephan Lichtsteiner was in scintillating form for the Bianconeri, with his strike helping them to retain the Supercoppa Italiana

By Max Bentley

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    112
    2
    4.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    Italy's national goalkeeper ensured he kept a clean sheet with a fine string of saves, particularly Radu's fizzing first-half effort which he got his fingertips to.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    103
    1
    4.00

    Andrea Barzagli

    Despite carrying a knock, the centre-back looked assured on the ball and used his aerial prowess to prevent Klose from latching onto a series of crosses.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    118
    0
    4.00

    Giorgio Chiellini

    A solid defensive performance from the centre-back, who raced up the other end to finish a devastating counter-attack

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    83
    7
    3.50

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Was burdened with the difficult task of man-marking Klose and on the whole he impressed, despite being beaten by the German's footwork on the odd occasion.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    163

    4.50

    Stephan Lichtsteiner Top of the Match

    Stunning performance from the former Lazio man who frequently got the better of Radu down the right. Showed brilliant movement and composure to notch a goal and an assist.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    112
    4
    3.00

    Andrea Pirlo

    Demonstrated his genius with a clever free kick routine to open the scoring for Conte's side. Even at 34, Pirlo continues to unlock opposition defences almost effortlessly.

  • Arturo Vidal
    114
    1
    4.00

    Arturo Vidal

    Another eye-catching performance from the midfielder who worked tirelessly from box-to-box. Did a brilliant job in preventing Hernanes from pulling the strings.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    69
    9

    Claudio Marchisio

    The Juventus No.8 had little time to make his mark on the match as he was withdrawn with an injury after 20 minutes following a tackle from Radu.

  • Kwadwo Asamoah
    79
    6
    3.00

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Found himself often pinned back by Candreva in his own half as he struggled to join in the Juventus attack. It's no surprise that this is a position that Conte is considering strengthening.

  • Carlos Tévez
    140
    4
    4.00

    Carlos Tévez

    A typical, hard-working performance from Juventus' summer signing who will be delighted to score on his competitive debut. His mazy dribbling caused Biava and Dias problems all game.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    97
    10
    3.50

    Mirko Vučinić

    The Montenegrin failed to get on the scoresheet but dropped deep to receive the ball and dragged defenders away with him. Juventus fans will be pleased to see he has formed a good understanding with Tevez.

Substitutions

  • Paul Pogba
    159
    3
    4.00

    Paul Pogba

    Conte's super-sub. Pogba showed once again why he is one of the brightest talents in Europe with another powerful performance. Showed great technique to swivel and finish with his left-foot to give Juventus a first-half lead.

  • Federico Marchetti
    30
    15
    3.00

    Federico Marchetti

    The Lazio shotstopper could do nothing to prevent any of the goals and will have serious questions to ask of his defence.

  • Andrè Dias
    6
    31
    2.00

    Andrè Dias

    Was found ball-watching on several occasions and failed to track runs in behind him. His positioning will certainly be a concern for Petkovic.

  • Giuseppe Biava
    6
    27
    2.50

    Giuseppe Biava

    Struggled to deal with the movement of Tevez and Vucinic and his sloppiness allowed Lichtsteiner to break the offside trap for Chiellini's goal.

  • Luis Cavanda
    15
    20
    3.00

    Luis Cavanda

    The Belgian defender had a solid game at right-back, showing great pace and anticipation to prevent Asamoah from having joy down the left.

  • Stefan Radu
    14
    19
    2.00

    Stefan Radu

    Came close to a Lazio equaliser with a rasping long-distance effort but ultimately struggled to cope with the runs of Lichtsteiner down the right. Substituted as a result.

  • Antonio Candreva
    32
    11
    3.00

    Antonio Candreva

    A determined performance from the Italian international whose dribbling caused Asamoah problems down the left. Good service from wide areas.

  • Cristian Ledesma
    6
    19
    2.00

    Cristian Ledesma

    Acted as a solid shield for the Lazio defence in the first half but was overpowered by Pogba and Pirlo in the second. Was duly replaced on the hour mark.

  • Hernanes
    5
    35
    2.00

    Hernanes Flop of the Match

    Lazio's little magician found himself under heavy pressure every time he received the ball and consequently could not pick his passes as he would have liked. Displayed his frustration with a wild swipe on Barzagli which earned a yellow card.

  • Lucas Biglia
    11
    22
    2.00

    Lucas Biglia

    Not the best of debuts for the Argentine who found himself chasing Juventus jerseys for the majority of the game. Allowed Pirlo, Vidal and Pogba to dominate the midfield.

  • Senad Lulic
    20
    17
    3.00

    Senad Lulic

    The Bosnian winger showed his ability by finding himself in space on the left on regular occasions. However, he lacked support in the attack and was often forced to cross the ball into the box.

  • Miroslav Klose
    28
    13
    2.50

    Miroslav Klose

    Lazio's top goalscorer last season showed glimpses of his class by getting into promising positions but will be disappointed after spurning two glorious chances to grab a consolation. Found himself well marshalled by Bonucci.

Substitutions

  • Ederson
    9
    17
    2.50

    Ederson

    Certainly made Lazio look more dangerous with his introduction but will be disappointed with his shooting.
