Champions League Game 6 – Juventus v Atletico Player Ratings

December 9, 2014

Juventus just edged a tight 0-0 at the Juventus stadium, giving them the point they needed to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

It was a tight affair, much like the first leg, with Juve pressing Atletico early on in the first half. Carlos Tevez tried to find a way through a well drilled and disciplined Atleti defence while Fernando Llorente struggled yet again to get into the match.

As the game wore on and it became apparent that the deadlock would not be broken without taken considerable risk, Allegri’s men settled for a draw, passing the ball around comfortably for 10 minutes as the match drew to a close.

Do you agree with our ratings ? Have your saw below.

Gianluigi Buffon

Tested early on by Koke and made a superb one handed save. Kept Juve in the game late on when beating away Mario Suarezs’ effort from distance. Superman

7.5 / 10

Stephan Lichtsteiner

Juve certainly looked better for having him in the team. Ran the right flank with his usual industry and tried to deliver useful crosses into the box. Defensively solid and won Juve a series of dangerous free kicks in the Atlti half.

6.5 / 10

Giorgio Chiellini

Drew fouls when he needed to, strong in the box and rarely put a foot wrong. Kept his composure late on as Juve played out the draw.

6.5 / 10

Leonardo Bonucci

Made runs out of the box and helped his team in attack when bringing the ball out to try and create something. Left nothing to chance when heading the ball out on more than one occasion.

6.5 / 10

Patrice Evra

A good display from the veteran full back. Defensively sound if slightly lacking in the attack. Linked up with Pogba as usual and gave a decent account of himself.

6.0 / 10

Roberto Pereyra

Failed to really threaten the Ateltico defence, his passing left a lot to be desired on occasion but definitely an improvement from his display at RWB.

6.0 / 10

 Andrea Pirlo

A typically Pirlo-esque display with lots of distribution but no end product. Had limited chances but didn’t capitalise on the free kicks and corners Juve had

6.5 / 10

 Paul Pogba

At the heart of the few positive moments Juve had. Played better on the left with Evra, played a perfect ball into the box but Llorente headed over and managed to test Moya with an effort from outside the box.

6.5 / 10

 Arturo Vidal

Reckless tackles early on made way for a few decent efforts from distance but not much else in terms of creativity.

6.0 / 10

Carlos Tevez

Looked lively in the first half by trying to get in amongst the Atleti defence but failed to make more of an impact in the game. Set up Pogba and Vidal’s shooting chances late on.

6.5 / 10

 Fernando Llorente

Had a great chance from Pogba’s cross but failed to capitalise. Yet another frustrating night for the Spaniard who held the ball up well but lacked any real service from his teammates.

6.0 / 10
