Goal.com takes a closer look at the men involved in Sunday's Derby della Mole, decided in the final minutes by goals from Marchisio and Vidal which handed a win to the visitors

By Daniel Edwards

  • Jean-François Gillet
    26
    14
    3.00

    Jean-François Gillet

    Always attentive and quick to come out of goal, closing down the space for Vucinic as Juventus looked to get behind the defence.

  • Danilo D'Ambrosio
    9
    15
    2.50

    Danilo D'Ambrosio

    An impressive stint from the right-back, followed Asamoah across the pitch and made his rival look rather ineffective over the 90 minutes.

  • Angelo Ogbonna
    33
    18
    2.50

    Angelo Ogbonna

    The Italian of Nigerian heritage proved himself a feisty customer in the middle of defence, marking tightly and never afraid to hit hard.

  • Salvatore Masiello
    7
    16
    2.00

    Salvatore Masiello

    An uncompromising presence, led always with the boot and tackled ferociously, pushing Juve back from the Torino area. Lucky at times not to incur further sanction.

  • Kamil Glik
    12
    28
    2.50

    Kamil Glik

    Saw plenty of action as Juve concentrated their attacks through Lichtsteiner down the full-back's flank. A tough ask, but kept a close eye on the Swiss international. Saw red in the final minutes.

  • Migjen Basha
    17
    19
    2.50

    Migjen Basha

    Another Torino man that revelled in the physical side of a ferocious derby. Pressed constantly and unsettled the visitors.

  • Mario Santana
    23
    12
    3.50

    Mario Santana

    One of the dangermen for Torino as the Argentine was busy down the left. Forced a fantastic save from Buffon with a powerful shot from distance.

  • Alessio Cerci
    10
    34
    2.00

    Alessio Cerci Flop of the Match

    A disappointing display from the ex-Roma midfielder, needed to explode down the right-hand side but looked off the pace.

  • Alessandro Gazzi
    13
    16
    3.50

    Alessandro Gazzi

    Busy and committed throughout the match, played predominately deep in his own half and stifled Juve's approaches.

  • Rolando Bianchi
    8
    23
    2.00

    Rolando Bianchi

    The ex-Manchester City striker constantly looked for a way through up front, but was well shackled and had few chances.

  • Riccardo Meggiorini
    5
    24
    3.00

    Riccardo Meggiorini

    Had little luck alongside Bianchi up front, controlled convincingly by Bonucci and Chiellini. Taken off on the hour for Jonathas.

Substitutions

  • Valerio Di Cesare
    7
    10

    Valerio Di Cesare

    Replaced D'Ambrosio for the last 15 minutes.

  • Valter Birsa
    9
    9

    Valter Birsa

    Given a brief run-out at the end.

  • Jonathas
    12
    11
    3.00

    Jonathas

    Came on in the second half, and tried gamely to feed off the scraps given to him up front.

  • Gianluigi Buffon
    191
    1
    3.50

    Gianluigi Buffon

    After a relatively quiet first half, showed his quality with a one-handed stop that frustrated Santana.

  • Giorgio Chiellini
    189
    1
    3.50

    Giorgio Chiellini

    A quiet game for the centre-back, who cleaned up Torino's wayward counter-attacks with ease and kept Juve in control from their own half onwards.

  • Andrea Barzagli
    179
    2
    3.50

    Andrea Barzagli

    Was given more problems than usual by the lively Santana on the right hand side, let the Argentine slip by on a couple of occasions.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    171
    5
    3.50

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Tried his best to get his side moving from their own half, distributing deep and wide. Kept Bianchi quiet for most of the encounter.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    135
    31
    2.50

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    As usual, a consistent performer for Juve down the right-hand side. Few frills, but more often that not landed his crosses.

  • Paul Pogba
    297
    11
    4.50

    Paul Pogba Top of the Match

    Elegant and assured in midfield, despite suffering some big hits from the hosts. A perfect through ball for Vucinic should have yielded an early opener.

  • Claudio Marchisio
    215
    6
    4.00

    Claudio Marchisio

    Was impressive playing just off Vucinic, drifting across the backline and causing problems. Had the ball in the net, but moved too early and was called offside - but made sure of victory with a smart finish at the death.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    191
    9
    3.50

    Andrea Pirlo

    Was given little room to breathe by a tenacious Torino backline, who squeezed the veteran playmaker from start to finish.

  • Kwadwo Asamoah
    156
    23
    2.50

    Kwadwo Asamoah

    Watching the winger operate out wide was an exercise in frustration. Always open for his team-mates, but the final ball was not good enough.

  • Arturo Vidal
    264
    4
    4.00

    Arturo Vidal

    As always, combative and full of energy in the middle of the pitch. The Chilean matched Torino's rather rustic approach with his own force. Went close with an early header before striking with a wonderful volley.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    81
    120
    2.00

    Mirko Vučinić

    Moved well on the shoulder of the last man, combining with Marchisio. Guilty, however, of wasting a golden chance with an awful finish.

Substitutions

  • Martín Cáceres
    189
    4

    Martín Cáceres

    Replaced Lichtsteiner and added some urgency to Juve's attacks.

  • Federico Peluso
    118
    24

    Federico Peluso

    Entered during injury time for a brief cameo.

  • Fabio Quagliarella
    177
    13
    3.00

    Fabio Quagliarella

    The striker's injection of pace proved important for the Old Lady as they finally overcame Torino.
