Player Ratings: Juventus 4-2 Cagliari

Milos Krasic scored an hat-trick as Juventus won their first home game of the season. But Andrea Lazzari was on fire too...

By Serafino Ingardia

    Marco Storari

    Aside from a save on Astori at the beginning of the second half, the former Sampdoria goalkeeper had little to do on the night.

  • Leandro Rinaudo

    Leandro Rinaudo

    Awful. The former Napoli defender was clearly out of position. Slow and clumsy, hopefully for Juventus fans we won’t see much of him this term.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    227

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Despite the goal, his display wasn’t impressive. He has to improve his marking and was a bit disappointing on Matri.

  • Giorgio Chiellini

    3.00

    Giorgio Chiellini

    Always the best man at the back, but could have done a little more to prevent Matri from scoring the opener. Still he is solid and strong, pretty much irreplaceable for the Old Lady.

  • Zdenek Grygera

    Zdenek Grygera

    Decent job from the Czech defender. The right footed full-back started on the left and was tidy at the back, but rarely came forward.

  • Milos Krasic

    Milos Krasic Top of the Match

    Fantastic display from the Serbian. The blond winger scored a hat-trick and led Juventus to victory. He may not be as good as Pavel Nedved but he was unquestionably the man of the match - fast and furious.

  • Alberto Aquilani
    231
    209
    3.00

    Alberto Aquilani

    It wasn’t easy to replace Claudio Marchisio, but if the former Liverpool player is to earn a regular place in this team we expect him to do much more than he did tonight. He clearly lacked personality in the middle of the park.

  • Felipe Melo
    409
    35
    3.00

    Felipe Melo

    Another good display from the Brazilian. He did miss Claudio Marchisio in midfield but did a good job helping out his teammates.

  • Simone Pepe
    256
    60
    2.50

    Simone Pepe

    Hard-working and useful, the former Udinese created plenty of openings and was important for Juventus.

  • Vincenzo Iaquinta
    176
    117
    2.50

    Vincenzo Iaquinta

    The Italian forward missed two good opportunities. He had a decent game but perhaps Luigi Del Neri was expecting a bit more from him.

  • Amauri
    238
    102
    2.50

    Amauri

    It was his first league start of the season and the striker made a good effort. His first touch wasn’t superb but he fought hard for Juve constantly tracking back – he will improve with time.

Substitutions

  • Nicola Legrottaglie
    90
    112
    2.50

    Nicola Legrottaglie

    The Italian defender came in to watch Matri score his second.

  • Mohamed Lamine Sissoko

    Mohamed Lamine Sissoko

    The former Valencia player looked eager even though he was only brought on for the last 10 minutes.

  • Alessandro Del Piero
    284

    Alessandro Del Piero

    The Old Lady legend didn't have much time on the pitch.

  • Michael Agazzi

    Michael Agazzi

    The Cagliari No. 1 could have done a little more on Krasic’s second, but overall his performance was decent.

  • Gabriele Perico

    24
    2.50

    Gabriele Perico

    His error led to Juve’s second goal and the Rossoblu full-back had a difficult game against Pepe.

  • Michele Canini
    3
    23
    2.50

    Michele Canini

    He did a decent job but it wasn’t easy to hold Amauri and Iaquinta. Still, Cagliari conceded from corner kicks when there was little he could do about it.

  • Davide Astori
    6
    27
    2.50

    Davide Astori

    The Rossoblu defender needs to gain experience and this was a difficult match for him.

  • Alessandro Agostini

    Alessandro Agostini Flop of the Match

    Krasic was uncontrollable today, but Agostini could have done more than sit back and watch the show.

  • Davide Biondini

    25
    3.00

    Davide Biondini

    Good display from Biondini, who looked tidy and inspired.

  • Radja Nainggolan

    Radja Nainggolan

    Not the best of performances from him. He struggled to make an impact.

  • Andrea Lazzari
    67
    19
    3.50

    Andrea Lazzari

    This boy made it a nightmare for Rinaudo and Juventus. He was a constant threat on the left flank and created several openings. He literally assisted both of Cagliari’s goals.

  • Andrea Cossu
    11
    26
    2.50

    Andrea Cossu

    Not as inspired as we expected him to be. The Sardinian attacking midfielder failed to take advantage of Juve’s slow backline.

  • Robert Acquafresca
    12
    32

    Robert Acquafresca

    Very disappointing display from Acquafresca. He did little to help out Matri and some might have not even noticed that he was on the pitch.

  • Alessandro Matri
    111
    27
    3.50

    Alessandro Matri

    The Sardinians’ striker looked lively, scored a brace and gave Bonucci a headache. He confirmed to be one of the best youngsters around and he definitely has a bright future ahead of him.

Substitutions

  • Francesco Pisano

    21

    Francesco Pisano

    Performed well off the bench.

  • Simon Laner

    Simon Laner

    He didn't have enough time to leave a mark in the game.

  • Nenê

    23
    2.50

    Nenê

    Nené missed a good opportunity in front of Storari while Bisoli expected him to do better.
