    Marco Storari

    The 33-year-old has been steady between the posts for Juve this season and tonight was no different. Didn't have really much to do. No chance on the own-goal from Motta. Did well to beat away D'Agostino's effort at the death.

  • Marco Motta
    140

    Marco Motta

    Inexplicably headed the ball into his own net from Vargas’ cross in the third minute. Del Neri might regret his decision to start the 24-year-old over Sorensen.

  • Giorgio Chiellini

    Giorgio Chiellini

    The archetypal rugged Italian defender kept Gilardino in his pocket until the Viola striker was forced off early in the second half. Was absolutely robbed by Boruc late on. A solid showing.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    264
    13
    3.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Didn’t put a foot wrong all game and came out on top in most of his aerial duels. Had a great chance in the 13th minute and another opportunity in the 80th but wasn't able to hit the target.

  • Fabio Grosso
    131
    67
    3.00

    Fabio Grosso

    Doesn't get forward as much as he used to but he still put in a decent shift.

  • Milos Krasic
    203
    50
    3.00

    Milos Krasic

    The shrewdest buy of the summer was a bit disappointing in the first hallf by his lofty standards but improved in the second session. Should have roasted Pasqual on the flank but did put in some decent crosses.

  • Felipe Melo
    269
    22
    3.00

    Felipe Melo

    He celebrated winning the Player of the Month for Juve with a typical swashbuckling performance.

  • Alberto Aquilani
    190
    36
    2.50

    Alberto Aquilani

    Shook off an injury to feature but wasn't able to exert his influence on the game. Showed off his technique with an acrobatic over-head kick in the 29th minute. Hooked in favour of Pepe.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    187
    25
    3.00

    Claudio Marchisio

    Full of gusto but spurned three chances in the first half alone. Moved into a central position after Aquilani was substituted and was always in the thick of the action.

  • Alessandro Del Piero
    190
    133
    3.00

    Alessandro Del Piero

    Showed his years as he missed an absolute sitter in the first half. Would have atoned for that miss if not for the heroics of Boruc later on. Was hooked on the hour mark. Just not his night tonight.

  • Fabio Quagliarella
    168
    35
    2.50

    Fabio Quagliarella

    The Italy international linked up well with Del Piero but was never really afforded any clear cut chances like most of his team-mates.

Substitutions

  • Simone Pepe
    283
    14
    3.00

    Simone Pepe

    Replaced Aquilani and the substitution paid dividends as he netted the equaliser.

  • Vincenzo Iaquinta
    129
    65
    3.00

    Vincenzo Iaquinta

    Great chance in the 76th minute but was unable to poke the ball past Boruc.

  • Davide Lanzafame
    103
    43
    0.00

    Davide Lanzafame

    Late substitute.

  • Artur Boruc
    376
    22
    3.00

    Artur Boruc

    The Polish shot-stopper stood tall and proud between the posts. Made a plethora of heroic saves to allow his team to take a point back to Tuscany. Easily the man of the match.

  • Manuel Pasqual
    22
    31
    3.00

    Manuel Pasqual

    The Italian defender wasted a chance in the 37th minute when the Viola were on an odd-man rush. Did well to neutralise the threat of Krasic on the wing.

  • Gianluca Comotto
    17
    27
    3.00

    Gianluca Comotto

    He was cruising until Pepe came on in the second half. Conceded the foul that led to Juve's equaliser.

  • Michele Camporese
    45
    24
    3.00

    Michele Camporese

    With Kroldrup suspended and Natali injured the teenager was forced into action tonight and he delivered big-time for Mihajlovic. He showed maturity beyond his years and made a few vital blocks.

  • Alessandro Gamberini
    27
    24
    3.00

    Alessandro Gamberini

    The 29-year-old marshalled the backline to the best of his ability and did well to contain Serie A's highest scoring team.

  • Mario Santana
    19
    28
    3.00

    Mario Santana

    Provided the Viola with width and wasn't afraid to take on his markers. Had a wonderful chance to double the Viola's lead at the time but couldn't keep his half-volley down in the 53rd minute.

  • Gaetano D'Agostino
    22
    19
    3.00

    Gaetano D'Agostino

    His free kick deliveries were top notch as usual. Still looking to regain full fitness but put in a good shift. Almost won it at the end for the visitors.

  • Adem Ljajic
    49
    17
    2.50

    Adem Ljajic

    Oozed confidence tonight and was very dangerous on the ball. Did a good job of leading the Viola's counters and was surprisingly taken off in the 65th minute.

  • Marco Donadel
    23
    25
    3.00

    Marco Donadel

    The captain battled hard in the midfield trenches as you would expect. Did the dirty work against Juventus with minimal fuss.

  • Juan Vargas
    89
    56
    3.50

    Juan Vargas Top of the Match

    Looked to silence his critics with a good performance tonight. The Peru international was very lively in the early going. Did well to help out Pasqual against Krasic. Probably his best performance of the season.

  • Alberto Gilardino
    23
    38
    2.50

    Alberto Gilardino

    His evening was cut short through injury but showed how much this game means to the Viola by chasing Krasic and dispossessing him after he gave the ball away.

Substitutions

  • Felipe
    31
    63
    2.00

    Felipe Flop of the Match

    Received his marching orders less than 20 minutes after his introduction and put the visitors in a tough spot.

  • Marco Marchionni
    29
    28
    3.00

    Marco Marchionni

    The former Juventus man was ineffective in his 25-minute cameo.

  • Khouma Babacar
    30
    27
    3.00

    Khouma Babacar

    Came on in the 55th minute after Gilardino was forced off through injury and caused some problems for the Juve backline.
