Goal.com analyses the players on show at Juventus Stadium on Sunday, as the visitors forced the Old Lady to settle for a goalless draw and a disappointing point at home

By Livio Caferoglu

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    137
    16
    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    Had a field day for most part of the match, bar a late slip-up which almost gifted Gazzi with the winner near the end.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    168
    22
    3.50

    Giorgio Chiellini

    Strong showing from the Italy stopper, who kept his place at centre-back. Rarely troubled by Siena's attackers and offered a commanding presence at the back.

  • Paolo De Ceglie
    129
    43
    3.50

    Paolo De Ceglie

    Despite an uncertain beginning, he eventually had an easy match against Luigi Giorgi, and tried his best to infiltrate Siena's half, albeit without much success.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    157
    12
    3.50

    Andrea Barzagli

    Was given the runaround by Destro in the early stages, but then got to grips with the forward and forced Siena into substituting him, along with Calaio. Very comfortable.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    149
    18
    3.50

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    Once more he defended aptly against Brienza, although his support play could have been better for his standards. Nevertheless, his work rate could not be faulted.

  • Simone Pepe
    55
    107
    3.00

    Simone Pepe

    Saw his game cut short with injury and was replaced by Giaccherini after 35 minutes.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    85
    77
    3.00

    Claudio Marchisio

    Average display from the combative performer, who despite being lively, failed to provide much cutting-edge from midfield and could not find a route beyond Siena's wall-like back line.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    221
    19
    3.00

    Andrea Pirlo

    Single-handedly carried his team in midfield, where his team-mates constantly looked towards him for inspiration. Sprayed the ball around with ease and threaded frequent through passes, although sadly none of his colleagues were on his wavelength.

  • Arturo Vidal
    130
    45
    2.50

    Arturo Vidal

    A solid if not spectacular performance from the Chilean, who was tireless as ever but was not able to assert his authority like he has done recently.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    61
    149
    2.50

    Mirko Vučinić Flop of the Match

    A promising opening to the match, which saw him get in a few good positions, ended in failure as his shooting left a lot to be desired. Found himself replaced by Borriello in the second half.

  • Alessandro Matri
    73
    99
    3.00

    Alessandro Matri

    Another mediocre display from the hitman, who struggled to hold the ball up for the team-mates effectively enough and did not pose much of a goal threat. Replaced by Quagliarella

Substitutions

  • Emanuele Giaccherini
    113
    44
    3.50

    Emanuele Giaccherini

    Showed glimpses of agility down the flank, but failed to truly examine the capabilities of Del Grosso.

  • Fabio Quagliarella
    102
    46
    2.50

    Fabio Quagliarella

    Late cameo from the masked attacker, who did not have enough time to make a telling impact.

  • Marco Borriello
    54
    110
    2.50

    Marco Borriello

    Did not contribute anything to the Juventus cause, bar two penalty appeals which were quickly dismissed by the referee.

  • Gianluca Pegolo
    114
    24
    4.00

    Gianluca Pegolo Top of the Match

    Fine goalkeeping display from the shot-stopper, who produced several important saves to earn Siena a point.

  • Roberto Vitiello
    13
    14
    3.00

    Roberto Vitiello

    Found it hard initially to deal with De Ceglie's youthful exuberance, but eventually settled into the game well and had a comfortable afternoon.

  • Cristiano Del Grosso
    16
    11
    3.00

    Cristiano Del Grosso

    Occasionally had the odd blip against Giaccherini in the second half, but his overlaps with Brienza were an eye-catching feat.

  • Luca Rossettini
    19
    13
    3.50

    Luca Rossettini

    Got the better of Matri and Co. as he helped his side prevent Juventus from getting the better of his fellow comrades.

  • Claudio Terzi
    12
    13
    3.50

    Claudio Terzi

    Did not drop concentration for the entirety of the contest, and continues to grow in stature in the top-flight.

  • Luigi Giorgi
    13
    12
    3.00

    Luigi Giorgi

    Impressive performance from the second-string winger, who forced Juventus' defenders out of position in the early stages but was eventually figured out. Encouraging nonetheless.

  • Simone Vergassola
    12
    13
    3.50

    Simone Vergassola

    The captain could not get near the majestic Pirlo, but was very professional in his approach and helped marshall his team-mates.

  • Alessandro Gazzi
    10
    13
    3.50

    Alessandro Gazzi

    Blew a glorious chance to win the match for his team against the odds, after ballooning his effort high and wide with three minutes to go.

  • Emanuele Calaiò
    11
    13
    3.00

    Emanuele Calaiò

    Looked isolated in attack, but made little effort to drop deep and help support his team-mates. Aptly subbed off for Gonzalez.

  • Mattia Destro
    12
    13
    3.00

    Mattia Destro

    His shooting ability was not showcased enough, but still made a impact with a couple of promising snapshots at Buffon. Replaced by Parravicini as Siena held out for a point.

  • Franco Brienza
    11
    13
    2.50

    Franco Brienza

    Juventus' overriding possession meant he had to sacrifice his pacy wing play in favour of a more disciplined role, but he gave his all and worked hard down the flank.

Substitutions

  • Francesco Parravicini
    12
    13
    2.50

    Francesco Parravicini

    Late cameo from the steely midfielder.

  • Pablo González
    11
    11
    3.00

    Pablo González

    Looked lively in the latter stages of the encounter, but was then forced into helping his team defend their point.
