Goal.com rates the players on show at Juventus Stadium, as the Bianconeri extended their lead at the summit of Serie A to seven points

By Ben McAleer

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    274
    4
    3.50

    Gianluigi Buffon

    Forced to push a Rosina cross out of play for a corner early on, but was rarely tested by the lackadaisical Siena front line until the 70th minute when he had to tip Emeghara's header onto the bar.

  • Federico Peluso
    200
    14
    3.00

    Federico Peluso

    After allowing Rosina in early to force a Siena corner in the opening exchanges, Peluso recovered from this stuttering start to perform solidly in the back three beside Barzagli and Bonucci.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    253
    6
    3.50

    Andrea Barzagli

    Impenetrable in the heart of the Juventus backline and ensured that a clean sheet was kept having hindered the impact of Emeghera.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    203
    11
    3.00

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Booked in the first half following a late sliding challenge, but a faultless performance from the Italian.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    289
    11
    4.00

    Stephan Lichtsteiner Top of the Match

    Broke forward expertly and linked up well with Vucinic to fire an effort over the bar before his goal on the half hour mark.

  • Paul Pogba
    289
    9
    3.50

    Paul Pogba

    A quiet afternoon for the Frenchman until his 89th-minute drive from distance that left Pegolo beaten.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    230
    16
    3.00

    Claudio Marchisio

    Regularly linked with up Vucinic expertly and forced a great save from Pegolo with a curling effort in the first half.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    242
    12
    3.00

    Andrea Pirlo

    Typically masterful in the middle of the Juventus midfield, fired a free kick over in the first half before sending a delicate chip just inches wide of the Siena post on the hour mark.

  • Kwadwo Asamoah
    200
    21
    3.00

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Broke down the flanks with purpose and Belmonte struggled to contain the Ghanaian. Could've had himself an assist had Pogba made a decent connection with his first-half strike.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    176
    57
    3.00

    Mirko Vučinić

    At the hub of everything. Pushed forward for Juventus and provided the assist for Lichtsteiner's goal. Siena really struggled to contain him before his second-half withdrawal.

  • Sebastian Giovinco
    242
    26
    3.50

    Sebastian Giovinco

    A dominant performance from the Italian, who secured the win for Juventus with a stunning strike midway through the second half.

Substitutions

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    223
    6
    3.00

    Giorgio Chiellini

    Continued his comeback from injury with a brief 15-minute cameo, and didn't put a fault wrong as he attains match fitness.

  • Emanuele Giaccherini
    162
    23
    2.50

    Emanuele Giaccherini

    Entered the fray late on, but could've netted after curling just wide of the Siena post in added time.

  • Alessandro Matri
    162
    24
    3.00

    Alessandro Matri

    Replaced Vucinic just after the hour mark, and may not have offered a similar threat to the Montenegrin, but was a handful during his time on the pitch.

  • Gianluca Pegolo
    22
    21
    3.00

    Gianluca Pegolo

    Could do little to prevent goals from Lichtsteiner, Giovinco and Pogba, but did well to deny Marchisio and Giovinco expertly. Didn't deserve to be on the losing side.

  • Felipe
    10
    17
    3.00

    Felipe

    Had a good game, all things considered, but was never able to deal with the marauding Lichtsteiner. A lack of cover from his team-mates didn't aid his cause.

  • Matteo Rubin
    10
    16
    3.00

    Matteo Rubin

    Pushed forward well, but was regularly contained in his own half to help Felipe deal with the threat of Lichtsteiner.

  • Jorge Teixeira
    8
    16
    2.50

    Jorge Teixeira

    Struggled with the threat of the returning Asamoah, and was never really able to help play the ball out as well as he'd hoped.

  • Christian Terlizzi
    10
    14
    3.00

    Christian Terlizzi

    Almost gave his side a glimmer of hope in the second half having struck the post, but was unable to prevent Siena conceding three.

  • Nicola Belmonte
    9
    14
    3.00

    Nicola Belmonte

    Pushed forward well and did what he could to help out Teixeira with the threat of Asamoah, but was never going to exert himself as well as he could've liked as a result.

  • Francesco Valiani
    4
    19
    2.00

    Francesco Valiani

    Never able to provide the necessary support that Emeghara needed and, as a result, Siena's attack continuously broke down.

  • Francesco Della Rocca
    4
    28
    2.00

    Francesco Della Rocca Flop of the Match

    Booked in the first half and was never really able to make his mark as a result. Struggled with Vucinic dropping deep and Marchisio.

  • Francesco Bolzoni
    14
    15
    3.00

    Francesco Bolzoni

    Continuously attempted to make things happen for his team. A tough task considering the opposition, but did well to stifle the threat of Pogba prior to his goal.

  • Innocent Emeghara
    29
    12
    3.50

    Innocent Emeghara

    A handful for the Juventus defence, forcing Buffon into action with a goal-bound header in the final 15 minutes of the game. Dealt with well by Bonucci.

  • Alessandro Rosina
    14
    16
    2.00

    Alessandro Rosina

    Forced Buffon into action early on, but couldn't build on his blistering start. Subbed in the second half.

Substitutions

  • Valerio Verre
    9
    14
    2.00

    Valerio Verre

    Not enough time to make an impact.

  • Salvador Agra
    14
    10
    3.00

    Salvador Agra

    Gave Siena the attacking threat that Rosina failed to provide, but in the end, it was too little too late for the lowly Serie A side.

  • Nicola Pozzi
    5
    21
    2.50

    Nicola Pozzi

    While Valiani struggled to make his mark, Pozzi was the same which often left Emeghara isolated.
