Torino 0-1 Juventus: The Bianconeri Player Ratings

The Bianconeri sweep the two Derby della Moles this season, beating the Granata 1-0 at the Stadio Grande Torino on Sunday.

Wojciech Szczesny (6): Basically a specatator for the derby. Torino didn’t manage to bother the Pole at all.

Mattia De Sciglio (6.5): A strong performance from start to finish for the right back, even when Niang came onto the field.

Daniele Rugani (6.5): Benatia? Who’s that? An excellent shift from Rugani to slot in easily and did everything right. His two stops to Torino’s counters against Obi and Belotti come to mind. A wall.

Giorgio Chiellini (7.5): An enormous game from Chiellini who handled his defensive duties with ease and then even got involved in the attack.

Kwadwo Asamoah (6.5): Almost scored early on in the game but with Allegri opting to push Alex Sandro further forward, Asamoah was basically in a support role all match, which he did very well.

Miralem Pjanic (6): The Bosnian was under constant siege from Baselli and without the usual Mandzukic, Higuain and Dybala trio in front of him, he seemed to struggle a bit.

Sami Khedira (5): Yikes. It’s almost as if he’s thrown away all the qualities that made him great and has tried to reconvert himself into a trequartista. Not good.

Stefano Sturaro (6): Played the game as a fighter from box-to-box. He fights for every loose ball and gave Torino problems in the midfield. It’s not surprising they never really had a snuff at Juve’s defense…

Douglas Costa (6.5): An added factor in attack for Juve. His quick moves and sprint speed gave Torino’s archaic defense major issues.

Gonzalo Higuain (N/A): Injured early on, subbed off in the 15′.

Alex Sandro (7): Did a lot of damage playing in this more advanced role. He and Costa were fun to watch on the flanks, perhaps this was a test for a future big game coming up… Definitely the protagonist after scoring the match’s lone goal.

Substitutions

Federico Bernardeschi (6.5): He gave Juventus a shakeup when he came on for the injured Higuain. Now there were three wingers in attack all with a superb amount of quality. Strangely enough, he was subbed late for Lichtsteiner.

Paulo Dybala (6): Made his return from injury today and made a positive impact on the game for the 25 minutes he was on the pitch.

Stephan Lichtsteiner (N/A): Was on the field for only a few minutes.
