Goal were on hand to see Antonio Conte's side get back to winning ways at Juventus Stadium as Arturo Vidal and Carlos Tevez earned maximum points in Turin

By Tom Maston

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    89

    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    A spectator for the whole 90 minutes. Didn't have a save to make and barely had to even touch the ball.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    102
    7
    3.50

    Giorgio Chiellini

    Saw plenty of the ball as the home side kept possession well. Broke up play well and almost got himself on the scoresheet with powerful first-half header.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    99

    3.50

    Andrea Barzagli

    A solid display at the heart of the defence as he made plenty of interceptions and won his fair share of headers. Not properly tested but did well.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    56
    41
    2.50

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Was guilty of giving the ball away in dangerous positions on at least two occasions and wasn't as assured as his colleagues in defence.

  • Paul Pogba
    107
    11
    3.50

    Paul Pogba

    Missed two very good chances but made up for it with workmanlike display in midfield. Sometimes guilty of losing the ball but assured in possession more often than not.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    105
    11
    3.00

    Andrea Pirlo

    Kept the ball well and showed glimpses of talent with some sumptious passing. Delivery from set-pieces was surprisingly lacking throughout.

  • Kwadwo Asamoah
    137
    3
    4.00

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Won first-half penalty before neat footwork set up Tevez's strike. A real threat on the left-hand side and deserved standing ovation when substituted.

  • Arturo Vidal
    125
    4
    4.00

    Arturo Vidal

    Expertly converted from the penalty spot after seeing earlier effort crash off the crossbar. Won plenty of tackles in midfield in excellent display.

  • Mauricio Isla
    82
    20
    3.50

    Mauricio Isla

    A threat coming forward on the right but final ball was sometimes lacking. Wasn't tested enough in defence by Genoa wide men.

  • Carlos Tévez
    193
    3
    4.50

    Carlos Tévez Top of the Match

    Took goal expertly and was a constant menace in and around the box. Could have had a hat-trick on another day whilst his passing was also exceptional.

  • Fernando Llorente
    117
    15
    3.00

    Fernando Llorente

    Struggled in front of goal despite having numerous chances. Still working on partnership with Tevez up front.

Substitutions

  • Paolo De Ceglie
    55
    12

    Paolo De Ceglie

    Had little time to make an impact after late substitutes appearance.

  • Simone Padoin
    38
    21

    Simone Padoin

    Failed to make an impact after replacing Vidal in closing stages.

  • Sebastian Giovinco
    72
    11

    Sebastian Giovinco

    Showed willing but never got into the game after late appearance from the bench.

  • Mattia Perin
    77
    7
    4.50

    Mattia Perin

    Easily the visitors' standout performer as he repeatedly kept Juventus at bay. Had no chance with either goal and can leave with his head held high.

  • Luca Antonini
    3
    21
    2.50

    Luca Antonini

    Failed to deal with Asamoah and Pogba effectively in the first half but got slightly better in the second period.

  • Luca Antonelli
    2
    16
    2.00

    Luca Antonelli

    Substituted at half-time after anonymous first half display. Barely had a touch on the left-hand side.

  • Giovanni Marchese
    4
    15
    2.00

    Giovanni Marchese

    Had only Genoa shot until stoppage time but it was certainly nothing to write home about. Had a poor game defensively.

  • Sime Vrsaljko
    18
    13
    3.00

    Sime Vrsaljko

    Showed some nice touches but only real piece of quality came in stoppage time. Didn't do enough to help in defence during first half.

  • Thomas Manfredini
    2
    17
    2.00

    Thomas Manfredini

    Failed to deal with Tevez and was repeatedly left for dead by the striker. Must do better against quality strikers.

  • Daniele Portanova
    4
    13
    2.50

    Daniele Portanova

    The better of Genoa's two cente-backs as he made some excellent clearances under pressure. Gave ball away in possession regularly though.

  • Davide Biondini
    3
    16
    2.00

    Davide Biondini

    Conceded penalty and regularly committed fouls. Lost the ball repeatedly though improved as the match went on.

  • Juraj Kucka
    8
    22
    1.50

    Juraj Kucka Flop of the Match

    Very disappointing in the middle of the park as he lost the ball on a regular basis. Wasted Genoa's best opportunity as he dithered in possession.

  • Andrea Bertolacci
    6
    16
    2.00

    Andrea Bertolacci

    Worked hard but didn't have the quality to trouble Juventus' midfield and defence. Substituted in the second half.

  • Alberto Gilardino
    9
    18
    2.50

    Alberto Gilardino

    Did not have any quality service to get on the end of and harshly withdrawn at half-time. Defeat certainly not his fault.

Substitutions

  • Giannis Fetfatzidis
    24
    13
    3.00

    Giannis Fetfatzidis

    Showed plenty of nice touches after half-time introduction as looked the most threatening Genoa player in attack. Missed good chance in stoppage time.

  • Ricardo Centurión
    5
    15

    Ricardo Centurión

    Had little time to make an impact after late substitute appearance.

  • Moussa Konaté
    5
    19
    2.50

    Moussa Konaté

    Struggled to get into the game after half-time introduction. Didn't make enough space for himself to get in possession on a regular basis.
