Produced two world-class saves to keep his side in the balance, and couldn’t have done anything to stop Flora Flores’ fine effort.
The 24-year-old did well to keep Udinese at bay, and was also an asset going forward in the first half, heading down into good areas.
Disposed Di Natale well just on the half hour mark, then regained possession shortly after with a clean slide tackle. Good overall performance.
Decent performance by the Swiss international, who bossed the 3-5-2 formation put out by Conte.
Top work at the back as he centred the three defenders, and made sure Di Natale didn’t get a sniff. Left stranded with Flora Flores as the visitors equalised, although that was more of a communication problem than anything else.
Good vision throughout the game. Movement off the ball was exceptional and proved the difference in a very tight encounter.
Looked good going forward, and had a decent effort saved in the first half. Replaced by Simone Pepe on the hour mark.
Looked less comfortable on the ball than in other games, perhaps thanks to the extreme weather conditions, but still put in a shift for Juve, especially through his set-pieces.
Could see his intention in his role behind the attack, but got booked and looked less cynical after the break.
Great distribution and provided some excellent crosses into dangerous areas. Subbed on the hour-mark.
Opened the scoring just before half-time with a typical striker’s goal, poaching Handanovic’s parried save for the lead and deserved the second to conclude a well earned performance.
Made a fine effort in the first half to deny Estigarribia a clear chance, however was not at fault for Juve’s first goal as he equalled Quagliarella’s effort but could have covered his angles better for Matri’s second.
Poor effort from the Brazilian, who struggled against Matri throughout.
Barely noticeable as the visitors went forward and proved the weaker link of the team.
Partnered Fernandes in midfield and moved the ball around well. Could have done better defensively as Pirlo took full advantage on occasions.
Run his socks off and put in a good display, and proved to be the Bianconeri’s best player. Replaced by fresh legs in the second half.
Good effort from the Colombian as he stamped his way through the game, tackling the likes of Vidal and Pirlo with gusto.
Average display from the former Parma defender, who essentially failed to get going.
An average game by his standards, and didn’t do much to keep the Juve attack at bay.
Did OK with Basta in the heart of the pitch, commanding display but didn’t prove the difference in the clash.
Inefficient and never looked likely to get a goal. Replaced by goalscorer Flora Flores for the second half.
A. Di Natale
Should have done better with his chance in the second half, shooting just wide after escaping his marker. Could have sneaked an equaliser late on but scuffed his shot.
- 21 D. Padelli
- 13 Neuton
- 24 J. Ekstrand
Subbed four minutes from time – made no impact.
- 25 G. Torje
Was on the field for just 20 minutes but made an effort to control Udinese in the midfield.
A. Floro Flores
Replaced Abdi for the second half and scored within just ten minutes with a fine curling effort to beat Buffon at his far post.
