Goal.com rates those on show as a late strike from Nicola Sansone ensures Roberto Donadoni's men remain unbeaten at home this season, while the Bianconeri's league lead is cut

By Tom Webber

  • Antonio Mirante

    4.00

    Antonio Mirante

    Did well to beat Quagliarella to the ball in the first half and then kept out Pirlo with a top save minutes before half-time. He was unlucky to be beaten by a wicked deflection after a decent outing.

  • Cristian Zaccardo

    3.50

    Cristian Zaccardo

    A competent afternoon from the centre-back. He stuck tight to Giovinco and ensured that the forward could not influence the game. A solid defence helped enable Parma steal a point from the league leaders.

  • Fabiano Santacroce
    29

    3.50

    Fabiano Santacroce

    The 26-year-old did not put a foot wrong as he followed Quagliarella and kept the striker away from the ball for much of the game. He was assured and effective at the back.

  • Massimo Gobbi
    24
    11
    3.00

    Massimo Gobbi

    Charged up and down the left flank relentlessly. He never stopped running, providing a positive outlet on the wings whilst also chasing back to help his team defend in the wide areas.

  • Gabriel Paletta
    24
    10
    3.00

    Gabriel Paletta

    Offered a bit too much space in the channels which Giovinco exploited in the early stages. An awful error almost gifted Juve a first-half goal but he more than made up for it with an excellent assist for Sansone's goal.

  • Jaime Valdes
    13
    15
    2.50

    Jaime Valdes

    Passed the ball well but was unable to really dictate the game in what was a heavily contested midfield. Space was at a premium but he always looked composed, however he slowed the game down far too much.

  • Marco Parolo
    15
    11
    3.00

    Marco Parolo

    An average performance in the midfield from Parolo as he struggled to get involved in the action. However, his positioning was good and while he did not stand out it was by no means a bad display.

  • Marco Marchionni
    12
    22
    2.00

    Marco Marchionni

    Used his experience in the midfield to try and direct Parma's play, but was unable to do so effectively. He was extremely combative and was not afraid of getting stuck in, at times a disadvantage.

  • Jonathan Biabiany
    26
    15
    3.50

    Jonathan Biabiany

    Did not make the most of his raw pace as he rarely ran at defenders. He more than made up for that with his industry, through, regularly getting back to aid his defence. He should have done more at the other end though.

  • Ishak Belfodil
    38
    9
    3.00

    Ishak Belfodil

    The Algerian put in a classy display as he kept the Juve defence occupied throughout. He was confident when dribbling and always proved a threat. A goal would have been completely deserved.

  • Amauri
    15
    37
    2.00

    Amauri

    The imposing striker was, by and large, extremely quiet. He failed to provide a focal point to the Parma attack and struggled to influence the game. He was outshone by his strike partner, Belfodil.

Substitutions

  • Afriyie Acquah
    19
    10
    3.00

    Afriyie Acquah

    Came on for Marchionni in the 82nd minute and did not have time to influence the game.

  • Nicola Sansone
    50
    12
    4.00

    Nicola Sansone Top of the Match

    Replaced the largely ineffectual Amauri in the 69th minute and had a brilliant impact. His energy was the bane of the Juve defence and he finished immaculately to earn his team a point.

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    79
    38
    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    The Juventus icon only let one shot past him on the day, and fortunately he had Lichtsteiner covering to clear away. He claimed almost every ball that was floated into the area and commanded the defence well.

  • Martín Cáceres
    57
    65
    2.00

    Martín Cáceres

    Looked shaky at times, particularly when he had Belfodil running at him. He allowed the Parma striker past him very easily a few times and was lucky his non-committal defending was not punished.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    83
    35
    2.50

    Andrea Barzagli

    Made some decent interceptions throughout the 90 minutes but also struggled to deal with the movement of Belfodil. The late goal will have disappointed the usually stout Juve defender.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    96
    26
    3.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    A solid performance at the back from the Italy international as he was rarely beaten in a physical battle. He was not shy of venturing forwards either, but his efforts on goal never caused Mirante a problem.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    75
    40
    3.00

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    The Swiss motored down the right wing but did not provide many convincing deliveries from the wide areas. However, one superb off-the-line block kept the scores level in the first half when Buffon was beaten.

  • Paul Pogba
    142
    26
    3.50

    Paul Pogba

    A powerful performance from the Frenchman as he challenged for every ball and came out on top more often than not. He policed the middle of the park well to help keep possession in their hands.

  • Simone Padoin
    34
    82
    3.00

    Simone Padoin

    It was an average afternoon for Padoin as he became extremely isolated in the wide areas and failed to combine with his team-mates. One bright moment earned the free kick which Pirlo scored from.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    145
    16
    3.50

    Andrea Pirlo

    Made a number of brilliant passes to switch the play and he also mucked-in physically. Kept off the scoresheet in the first half by a great Mirante save, but found the net with a deflected free kick after the break.

  • Arturo Vidal
    80
    77
    2.00

    Arturo Vidal Flop of the Match

    A bullish performance in the centre of the park from the Chilean, but he did not show the attacking drive which has seen him net five goals in the league so far this season. He needed to support the strikers more.

  • Sebastian Giovinco
    107
    81
    3.50

    Sebastian Giovinco

    He was extremely lively in the early stages as his bright dribbling and close control caused Parma some problems. Yet his influence waned throughout the rest of the game and he failed to test Mirante.

  • Fabio Quagliarella
    120
    65
    3.50

    Fabio Quagliarella

    Not afraid to shoot early on, Quagliarella looked like he was going to be a nuisance all afternoon. He lacked service in the latter stages and was beaten to the ball by Mirante when one-on-one in the first half.

Substitutions

  • Paolo De Ceglie
    68
    38
    3.00

    Paolo De Ceglie

    Came on for Padoin in the 65th minute and helped sure up the left flank for the visitors.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    47
    116
    3.00

    Mirko Vučinić

    Replaced Quagliarella in the 69th minute but was unable to test Mirante as the Parma defence stayed strong in the closing stages.
