  • Javier Zanetti
    43
    15
    3.00

    Turned inside out for Immobile's opener, yet impressed other than that.

    32
    29
    3.00

    Impressive in the heart of the defence again and could've netted in the second half, but headed over from the corner.

  • Walter Samuel
    36
    16
    3.00

    Alongside Ranocchia, did his best to nullify the threat of Immobile and was solid in the backline.

  • Juan Jesus
    31
    21
    3.50

    Juan Jesus

    A poor first half saw him replaced at half time by Chivu. Struggled to contain the threat of Immobile.

  • Ricardo Álvarez
    20
    34
    2.50

    Ricardo Álvarez

    Subbed off in the first half after picking up an injury. Looked to make things happens, but ultimately failed to unlock the Genoa back line during his short time on the pitch.

  • Esteban Cambiasso
    55
    12

    13
    35
    2.00

    Appeared as a substitute late on and could've won the encounter had he netted from close range.

    26
    2
    4.00

    Sebastien Frey

    Excellent performance from the Frenchman, but could little to keep out Cambiasso's header late on.

    11
    3
    3.50

    3.00
