Competent and confident but actually had very little to do overall - other than thank his lucky stars that Cavani's brilliant free kick from out wide crashed off the bar.
Rather ironically, he didn't enjoy Napoli's physical approach to the game, while he wasn't exactly overworked on account of the home side's domination of possession. However, he did what he had to do very well.
Did his best to make in-roads down the right-hand side but was well marshalled by Zuniga and eventually became very frustrated with his inability to make something happen.
One of the victims of Napoli's committed challenges, the Italy defender had to go off to seek treatment midway through the first half. However, recovered well and was untroubled thereafter - both by the injury and the blunt Napoli attack.
Was also given a pretty easy ride from a defensive perspective and so he spent a fair bit of time in the opening half exaggerating the impact of several aerial collisions. Reliable as ever, though.
Was in the wars early on, coming in for plenty of roughhouse treatment from an aggressive Napoli side, but that did not dissuade him from the task at hand and he was a fine attacking outlet down the left wing for the hosts. Asked plenty of questions of Maggio, and although his final ball did let him down on occasion, he was a constant threat.
Looked busy right from the off but, if we're being honest, he struggled to dictate the game like he usually does. His set-piece delivery was also uncharacteristically poor until he put a brilliant corner right on the head of Caceres. The veteran playmaker also produced the pass of the game, for Matri, but the forward was unable to control his lofted through-ball.
Was horribly wayward with an early strike from distance and, overall, struggled to take a hold of the proceedings. His withdrawal with 15 minutes to go was a long time coming.
As ever, was full of running and blazed just over the bar with a fine drive just before the half-time whistle. At the other end, he made a crucial interception just when it appeared that Pandev had got himself in on goal. Influential throughout.
Got the nod up top in place of the injured Vucinic and linked well with Giovinco every now and then. However, he didn't hold the ball up particularly well and really struggled to get into the game.
Was Juve's liveliest attacking player for the most part, calling De Sanctis into action inside the opening 60 seconds. However, he featured only intermittently thereafter, and wasted a glorious opening by firing wide after his miscued effort dropped invitingly for him in the area.
M. De Sanctis
Was grateful to his defenders for clearing the danger after he spilled Giovinco's early effort but had little to do for the remainder of the half, aside from getting down well to keep out a low drive from Asamoah that could have crept in. Given no chance in the second half by either Caceres or Pogba.
Was put under a fair bit of pressure by Asamoah but stood up to the challenge well, even if he did allow the former Udinese man to get to the byline on occasion. The attack-minded wing-back also got forward when he could, with his breakaway, pressure-relieving run right on half-time probably his most notable contribution in that regard.
Made a vital contribution with less than a minute played, hacking the ball clear after De Sanctis had failed to hold a shot from Giovinco. Continued in the same vein for the rest of the game, playing a key role in Napoli's resistance, though he was booked for a farcical set-to with Chiellini.
A very effective and disciplined performance from the former Fiorentina man, who contributed a number of timely tackles and was only taken off because Napoli needed to throw on an extra attacker after falling behind.
Rock solid at the heart of the Napoli defence, giving Quagliarella a really rough ride and generally leading by example. Unlucky to be on the losing side.
Typified Napoli's aggressive approach in the middle of the park, throwing himself into tackles right from the get-go. Offered little from an attacking perspective, though.
Always niggling at players' heels and eventually picked up a booking as a result, but the Swiss did a very effective job screening his back three. Was always available for a pass and also used the ball simply and effectively.
Really put himself about, utilising his strength to good effect in curbing the threat posed by Lichtsteiner down Juve's right-hand side.
Did not see enough of the ball in the attacking third in the first half, which was a shame because when he did pick up possession in a dangerous area, he looked very menacing.
A surprisingly anonymous performance from a man who has been one of Napoli's better players this season. Not once did he threaten the Juventus goal, or provide his strike partner with any decent service.
Booked for an early collision with Chiellini and while that may have been harsh, the Uruguayan did look frustrated early on with how little quality ball he was receiving, giving away a plethora of free kicks. However, he was desperately unfortunate not to break the deadlock with a stunning set-piece strike from the left-hand side of the box that rattled the bar.
Came on for Asamoah and scored with virtually his first touch, rising majestically to power home Pirlo's corner from the left.
Thrown on in place of Vidal on 75 minutes and emulated fellow sub Caceres by getting his name on the scoresheet, though in even more spectacular style, the youngster finding the bottom corner with a terrific volley.
Took over from Quagliarella up front and should have made a near-instant impact after breaking the Napoli offside trap, but he failed to control Pirlo's wonderful ball over the top.
