Player Ratings: Juventus 3-1 Copenhagen

Goal was on hand to cast judgement over a Juventus side who kept themselves in the Champions League thanks to an excellent Arturo Vidal hat-trick and a majestic Pirlo performance

By Simon Harrison

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    120
    11
    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    The veteran shot-stopper had little to do in this game, with a smart save from Toutouh being the only real save he had to make.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    125
    11
    3.00

    Giorgio Chiellini

    A steady performance from the towering defender, who wasn't asked a great deal of questions throughout.

  • Martín Cáceres
    135
    13
    3.00

    Martín Cáceres

    A solid performances from the Uruguayan, who stepped out of defence to make a good few interceptions in the later stages.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    119
    11
    3.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Unlucky not to meet a couple of corner deliveries, and made a couple of good challenges to dispossess Jorgensen on the edge of the penalty area.

  • Paul Pogba
    200
    10
    4.00

    Paul Pogba

    The Frenchman popped up everywhere on the field, producing an excellent assist for Vidal's third goal and being involved in winning Juventus' first penalty.

  • Simone Padoin
    60
    77
    2.50

    Simone Padoin

    Provided a couple of crosses from the right hand side, but wasn't hugely involved and didn't provide a great deal of width either.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    177
    12
    3.00

    Andrea Pirlo

    A sauntering performance from the veteran maestro, who made things look so easy with continual touches of quality and the ability to pick out any pass.

  • Kwadwo Asamoah
    132
    17
    3.00

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Offered plenty of pace and width in the first half and was a worthwhile outfit, but had less influence on the game as the match progressed.

  • Arturo Vidal

    5.00

    Arturo Vidal Top of the Match

    An exceptional hat-trick, with the Chilean dispatching two penalties expertly, before clipping a fantastic header in off the crossbar to secure the win.

  • Carlos Tévez
    150
    22
    3.00

    Carlos Tévez

    The Argentine linked up well with Llorente, but was often thwarted by good blocks from the Copenhagen defence.

  • Fernando Llorente
    219
    6
    4.00

    Fernando Llorente

    An excellent focal point for Juventus, as the ball stuck to the Spaniard brilliantly, allowing for him to bring other players into the game.

Substitutions

  • Claudio Marchisio
    119
    15
    3.00

    Claudio Marchisio

    Managed to advance into the box a few times in the late stages, and provided the required fresh legs to keep things ticking over in midfield.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    84
    18

    Mirko Vučinić

    Had a couple of snapshots in the last five minutes, but failed to test Wiland.

  • Johan Wiland
    21
    11
    3.00

    Johan Wiland

    Another admirable performance from the Swedish goalkeeper, who made a few decent saves and commanded his area well.

  • Lars Jacobsen
    5
    21
    2.50

    Lars Jacobsen

    Conceded the first penalty of the game, but was otherwise a hard-working example to the rest of his defence.

  • Pierre Bengtsson
    9
    11
    2.50

    Pierre Bengtsson

    Didn't have a great deal to do again Padoin, but was torn apart whenever the likes of Vidal or Tevez would burst into the channel.

  • Olof Mellberg
    41
    13
    3.00

    Olof Mellberg

    Finished excellently for Copenhagen's only goal of the game, firing beyond Buffon with a scissor-kick of sorts, before bringing down Llorente for a penalty moments later.

  • Ragnar Sigurdsson
    6
    13
    2.50

    Ragnar Sigurdsson

    Unfortunate not to bundle home a couple of half chances in goalmouth scrambles, the Icelandic defender made a couple of good interceptions.

  • Claudemir
    6
    12
    3.00

    Claudemir

    Broke up play whenever possible, shielding his central defensive pairing as best as possible. Made one key tackle on the edge of the penalty area.

  • Thomas Delaney
    7
    15
    2.50

    Thomas Delaney

    Didn't create anything for his side, but worked hard to try and win the ball back from a Juventus midfield that was relentless throughout.

  • Christian Bolaños
    3
    21
    2.00

    Christian Bolaños Flop of the Match

    Didn't have the same effect that he normally has from the bench, as the Costa Rica midfielder was substituted first due to being ineffectual.

  • Nicolai Jörgensen
    8
    9
    3.00

    Nicolai Jörgensen

    His pace was a useful outlet for Copenhagen, and at times the Dane managed to get beyond Chiellini, but generally he was bullied by the Juventus defence.

  • Rurik Gislason
    3
    16
    2.50

    Rurik Gislason

    Was largely ineffectual as he didn't see much of the ball, but was positive whenever he gained possession and keen to beat his man.

  • Youssef Toutouh
    5
    15
    3.00

    Youssef Toutouh

    The forward was the only player to test Buffon all game, and showed raw talent in odd flashes, in a much better showing then when he faced Galatasaray.

Substitutions

  • Thomas Kristensen
    6
    15
    2.50

    Thomas Kristensen

    He worked hard in the midfield third after coming on as a substitute, attempting to smother the influence that Pirlo was having on the match.
