By Stefano Federici

  • Eduardo
    22
    62
    3.00

    Eduardo

    Made a few decent stops between the sticks but should have done more to stop Marchisio's effort for the opener.

  • Rafinha
    18
    30
    2.50

    Rafinha

    Failed to get forward enough and suffered the presence of a dominant Fabio Grosso.

  • Andrea Ranocchia
    16
    33
    3.00

    Andrea Ranocchia

    Taken off at the break as coach Davide Ballardini looked to go for broke with his side two goals down.

  • Dario Dainelli
    9
    34
    3.00

    Dario Dainelli

    At fault for the visitor’s opener as he deflected Marchisio’s effort past the reach of Eduardo.

  • Kakhaber Kaladze
    16
    51
    2.50

    Kakhaber Kaladze

    A poor day at the office for the former Milan stopper.

  • Domenico Criscito
    29
    46
    2.50

    Domenico Criscito

    Beaten far too easily by Krasic on Juventus’ second goal. Unlucky not to have reduced the distances when he saw a wonderful volleyed effort come crashing off the bar.

  • Omar Milanetto
    15
    32
    2.00

    Omar Milanetto

    Had a torrid time and was often overlapped by the speed of Fabio Quagliarella.

  • Marco Rossi
    6
    35
    2.50

    Marco Rossi

    Not his usual self going forward and failed to provide the service needed to open up the visitors.

  • Miguel Veloso
    16
    29
    2.50

    Miguel Veloso

    Came under-fire from a superior Bianconeri midfield and eventually made way for Kharja.

  • Luca Toni
    23
    40
    3.00

    Luca Toni

    Had numerous chances to find the net but his slow-decision making gave the Bianconeri stoppers that extra second to react.

  • Giandomenico Mesto
    10
    46
    2.50

    Giandomenico Mesto Flop of the Match

    Sacrificed at the break by his coach who looked to mix things up in a bid to reduce the gap between the sides.

Substitutions

  • Houssine Kharja
    33
    32
    3.00

    Houssine Kharja

    Had a very positive influence on the Rossoblu following his second half entry and was the spark behind numerous attacking moves.

  • Gergely Rudolf
    15
    33
    3.00

    Gergely Rudolf

    Thrown on late on but could do little to change the inevitability of defeat.

  • Mattia Destro
    8
    37
    2.50

    Mattia Destro

    Provided Toni with some much needed support in attack following his introduction in the second period. The former Inter man went desperately close in the closing stages after spraying wide of the post on the turn.

  • Marco Storari
    407
    7
    3.00

    Marco Storari

    Came up with some great reactions when called into action during the closing stages. The glovesman has provided some added value to the Bianconeri since his summer arrival at Vinovo.

  • Marco Motta
    214
    64
    2.50

    Marco Motta

    Gave a decent account of himself for the best part of an hour and eventually made way for Sorensen as fatigue started to kick in.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    368
    7
    3.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Provided cover at the back in key stages and will be delighted to go home with a clean sheet.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    413
    8
    3.00

    Giorgio Chiellini

    A rock at the back for the Old Lady. Left Luca Toni was nothing more than half chances

  • Fabio Grosso
    228
    89
    2.50

    Fabio Grosso

    The veteran gave a no-nonsense performance down the left and used his experience to restrict the Rossoblu into crossing from deep.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    436
    7
    3.50

    Claudio Marchisio

    Opened the scoring rather fortunately with a well taken volley inside the box. Kept the Bianconeri pushing forward throughout the encounter and provided decent cover when the Grifoni looked at the most threatening.

  • Alberto Aquilani
    512
    7
    3.00

    Alberto Aquilani

    One of the star performers at the Marassi. The Roman was once again the talisman in midfield for the Old Lady and is slowly adding consistency to his game following some torrid years of injury setbacks.

  • Felipe Melo
    463
    7
    3.00

    Felipe Melo

    Another energetic performance by the Brazilian who is gradually returning to the heights of his Fiorentina days. With the Brazilian in such form the opposition have no route down the middle and Genoa failed to make better use of the wide areas.

  • Milos Krasic
    833
    8
    4.00

    Milos Krasic Top of the Match

    Returned to the starting XI with a wonderful piece of solo brilliance to double his side’s lead.

  • Fabio Quagliarella
    389
    20
    3.00

    Fabio Quagliarella

    Failed to find the net but was a constant threat on the break. The Neapolitan has cemented himself at the centre of the coach’s plans.

  • Vincenzo Iaquinta
    210
    193
    3.00

    Vincenzo Iaquinta

    Squandered a golden chance to put the game to bed when he failed to round Eduardo shortly after the hour mark.

Substitutions

  • Frederik Sorensen
    638
    5
    3.00

    Frederik Sorensen

    The youngster made a second half entry and didn’t disappoint by giving another mature performance on the right.

  • Mohamed Lamine Sissoko
    295
    60
    3.00

    Mohamed Lamine Sissoko

    Added muscle to the midfield line as the Rossoblu started to throw everything forward.

    Hasan Salihamidzic

    Thrown on late on to provide added cover at the back.
