Beaten by Tevez with a world-class strike. Perhaps could have done a better job to challenge Marchisio on the second, but was left stranded by his defenders. Made some big saves to keep Sassuolo in the game.
Defended against Isla well, getting the better of the Chilean on several occasions. Failed to provide Sassuolo's attacking trio with much support. Subbed off in the 65th minute.
Did a great job of keeping Juventus in check, although he conceded possession to Andrea Pirlo to allow the visitors to take the lead.
Made a vital tackle on Marchisio in the first half with the midfielder through on goal. Never really got up from his right-back position to provide support in attack.
His veteran leadership proved vital at the back. Made a number of important blocks and recovery tackles that had Juventus frustrated for much of the match. Always in the right position.
Did an exceptional job of defending for much of the match, but struggled following the arrival of Lichtsteiner. Caught out of position for the third Juventus goal.
Tireless performance in midfield, contributing on both sides of the ball. Some momentary lapses in judgement proved to be his undoing.
Played in a deeper role, never getting forward to contribute in attack. Completely overmatched by Juventus' midfield trio of Pogba, Pirlo and Marchisio.
Incredibly creative in attack. Some great link-up play with Zaza caused problems for Juventus. Assisted the game's opening goal with a lovely through-ball.
A. Floro Flores
Overshadowed by his two strike partners. Made a number of nice runs off the ball to create space, but didn't see much of it himself.
Brilliant skill and work ethic. Gave the Serie A's best defence a serious handful in attack. Put Sassuolo in front early on and would have had another if not for Buffon.
Poor positioning on the first goal. Made up for it by shutting the door from that point on, making some magnificent stops late on.
Wasn't his usual dominant self at the back, but did manage to make some key tackles. Troubled by the activity level of Sansone who was full of energy in the final third.
Poor communication with Buffon led to some nervy moments at the back. Caught watching as Sassuolo took an early lead. Recovered well, however, making some important tackles, but was forced off injured in the 74th minute.
Put under the most pressure by Zaza. Couldn't keep up with the striker. Beaten on the first goal and rescued by Buffon to prevent a second, though he was stronger in the second period.
All over the place in midfield and proved to be too much for Sassuolo to deal with. Made a nice run and finished magnificently to score the decisive second goal.
Seemed to come to life as the match went on. Relatively quiet for much of the first half, but linked up wonderfully with Lichtsteiner to set up the third goal.
Saw plenty of the ball early on as Juventus looked to build down the left, but was very wasteful with possession and often lacked a good final ball.
Dictated the tempo throughout. Assisted Marchisio's goal with a superb pass. Subbed off with 10 minutes to play for Vidal.
Couldn't do anything with the ball. Struggled to get the better of Ziegler, who kept the Chilean in check. Subbed off in the 63rd minute, with his replacement Lichtsteiner faring much better.
A bit wasteful in the first half. Acted more as provider than poacher, but changed all that with a creative backheel finish to put the game out of reach with 15 minutes to play.
Could have had four or five goals. Brilliant strike to draw Juventus level when they really needed a spark and hit the crossbar with a curled effort late on.
