A superb showing from the shot-stopper who was equal to everything the visitors threw at him. Great stops from the likes of Marchisio and Pirlo prove him as one of the best in Italy.
A great stop on Matri's shot early in the second half and a solid part of the backline that shut Juve out. The only low point on his grade comes from risking a penalty on 17 minutes, but he emerged unscathed.
Blocked a shot from Marchisio in the 69th minute and did well at times to contain Pepe. Booked however when the winger got the best of him.
Could have won the game himself with two shots on goal after 64 minutes. Solid if unspectacular at the back.
Booked early on for a challenge with Marchisio but much less reckless after that, and forced Buffon into a great save from his free kick in the 74th minute.
Subbed just after he was booked, alternated between wasteful and creative. An up and down performance from the player today.
Absolutely ran his heart out during the match, even if he was unable to prevent Juventus from dominating possession. Always willing to try creative passes as well.
A constant problem for the makeshift visiting defence. Full of running and creative movement, forced a booking on De Ceglie but was somewhat wasteful of the chances he got.
Superb at holding up the ball and winning fouls, and a constant presence in the box, but failed to get on target during the match.
Had one shot that blazed over the bar, but otherwise taken off at halftime due to a lack of involvement. Much less impressive that Palacio up front.
Had one of the toughest jobs of the evening: a spectator for large parts of the match but always ready to deal with shots. One of the best goalkeepers of his generation, as he showed within the first minute when he had to be lively to keep out Palacio.
P. De Ceglie
A very impressive performance from the full-back, who was always full of running and helpful in both offense and defence. Could have earned a second yellow, however.
Did well with an unfamiliar partner to keep a clean sheet but was run ragged at times. Produced a perfect tackle on Biondini at the edge of the box to keep the home side out.
Not as dominant as one would come to expect from the fullback having a superb season in a Juventus shirt. Solid nevertheless.
Needlessly booked, full of running and tireless with his crosses: it was a classic Simone Pepe performance.
Not the same player he was earlier in the season. Should have scored in the 15th minute but was creative in his passing nevertheless.
As ever, the heartbeat of this Juventus side with some solid shots on goal, but the team needed a bit more from him to break down Genoa today.
Will be hoping that one of the centre-backs returns so he can go back to his role in the midfield. Caught out a few times in his new position and hassled endlessly by Palacio.
Had a fascinating battle with Rossi that went back and forth, and put a number of balls into the box as well. A decent game if not terribly memorable.
Looked more and more like the Vucinic that nearly guided Roma to the Scudetto. Full of energy and creativity but couldn't score when his team needed him the most.
Did very well helping his side defend corners but was poor up front, wasting opportunities that he really should've scored.
- 22 C. Lupatelli
- 19 C. Jorquera
Came on as a late sub for the very tired Biondini.
Came on for Sculli in the second half and was a bit more lively but failed to truly compliment the impressive Palacio up top.
Still has Elia in his pocket and was immense in the box during set plays.
- 4 Miguel Veloso
- 9 Zé Eduardo
- 30 M. Storari
- 20 S. Padoin
- 34 L. Marrone
Came on as a late sub but was hounded by Constant for his 20 minute appearance. Ineffective.
A. Del Piero
Came on with 15 minutes and showed flashes of creativity but like his fellow substitutes, failed to change the outcome of the match.
- 18 F. Quagliarella
A very late sub who tried an audacious scissor kick but failed to connect properly on a corner.
