Made the only save of note in the first-half with a regulation stop from Bonucci's header. Denied Del Piero at the death with an excellent smothering stop. Stood up to the test of his concentration in a game devoid of many real goalscoring chances.
Stood up well to Krasic at left-back but when Martinez took him on at the end, had little answer. Would have liked to have seen more from the Swiss in attack and his set-pieces were disappointing as well.
Caught narrow at times allowing Grosso the space to cross. Often was taken out of the game as Marchisio never took him on or else drifted infield to link with Aquilani. Was much more edgier after the late introduction of Martinez.
Was very solid at the back, as typified by his strong challenge on Krasic early on. Even picked opportune moments to stride forward with the ball out of the defence.
Met his match in physical terms in the shape of Sissoko but he gave no quarter in the midfield battle.
As ever, an outlet down the left-hand side with his pace but he needed to be more decisive and get the cross in - needed to provide a sterner examination of Motta's credentials.
The more creative of the midfield two, he kept possession well for his side. Kept his head and his technique even when under pressure.
Made some good runs down the right hand side and did his fair share of defending on both sides of the pitch, which is instrumental for the wide man in 4-4-2. Didn't take on and beat Grosso enough times to be a truly effective attacking weapon.
Looked bright early on, linking up well with Pazzini and showing some nice touches. Forced Chiellini into a rash challenge, which earned the defender a booking. Had a decent shout for a penalty but never looked like getting on the scoresheet.
Guilty early on of not being present in the danger area when crosses came in. Missed an absolute sitter five minutes into the second period, which really should have been put away. His game was cut short by an injury just before the hour.
Finally making his comeback after a long spell out with injury and barely had anything to do. A gentle re-introduction to football for one of the world's finest goalkeepers.
Kept Pazzini quiet and was in the right place more often than not but at times wasteful in possession and ill-disciplined in the challenge.
Read the game well and was there to come in when those in front of him had been left behind.
Looked confident early on though he did pick up the first booking of the piece. Did show some inexperience in that his temperament was at times suspect however Gulberti rarely got the better of him.
A mixed bag for Marchisio - not a natural out on that left - sometimes gave it away, sometimes a niggly foul here and there but other times played some neat passes and put in the odd good cross on his right foot.
Starting as a second striker and not a winger, he adapted well because he is a hard worker and throws himself into the task assigned. There was an excellent flick on for Krasic, which you'd expect from Amauri or Iaquinta. Didn't limit himself to the box and worked the channels well. Made one outstanding run but was too hesitant to shoot.
Was a little careless in possession early on but equally was strong and robust enough without the ball. Drove Juve on with his ability to carry the ball forward.
Looked up for this game from the off, with an early shot across the bows in the form of a burst of pace down the right flank. However, his decision making was confused as he seldom knew when to get to the by-line and when to take a more cautious option. Another subpar performance came to an end on 56 minutes.
Usually an immaculate distributor, he was as guilty as anyone of misplacing a few passes. His lack of speed does sometimes interrupt the rhythm of Juve's attacks but looks better when laying it forward for runners like Pepe and Krasic.
The masked man was pressed into action with Juve's shortage of strikers. Kept very quiet by Accardi save for one headed chance halfway through the second half, which he took like a man without a Serie A goal this season.
- 1 Angelo Da Costa
- F. Cacciatore
Called upon after 11 minutes when Lucchini had to go off. Was very solid and dependable before the break. Kept Amauri under control.
Replaced the unfortunate Pozzi in the second period and bolstered the midfield.
- 11 V. Koman
- 4 D. Dessena
- 30 M. Storari
- 21 Z. Grygera
An unexpected introduction after not even two minutes in place of the injured Traore. Battled hard with Mannini down his side and was a useful outlet down the left flank on occasions into the space vacated by Marchisio.
- 33 N. Legrottaglie
Replaced Aquilani for the final six minutes and made one wonder why he wasn't on from the start as he cut the Samp defence open with his pace. Put some excellent balls into the area but unfortunately the Juve attackers couldn't finish off the winger's good work. Did more in five or so minutes than anyone else on the pitch to actually make a game of it.
- 7 H. Salihamidžić
A. Del Piero
The veteran fought a bout of flu to come on in the second half and added a much needed touch of class to proceedings. He was adept at finding space between the lines and spreading enterprising balls forward but lacked the chemistry with Amauri. Is denied a higher rating as he missed two sitters at the end to ensure a scoreless draw.
