Mario Lemina made his debut while Juan Cuadrado started on the wing as Juve faced Genoa with a new-look 4-3-3 formation

Genoa made a strong start and matched Juve early on, but a rash tackle from Izzo reduced the home side to 10-men. Genoa were undone by a Lamanna own goal before Paul Pogba stepped up and converted from the spot to give Juve their first win of the 2015/16 season.

Gigi Buffon

Had precious little to do all game but was assured in his box and managed his defence well.

6.0 / 10

Stephan Lichtsteiner

A strong performance from the right-back who had a personal duel against Laxalt. More impressive in defensive than in attack

6.5/ 10

Andrea Barzagli

Didn’t have much to do but he was solid throughout alongside Chiellini.

6.5 / 10

Giorgio Chiellini

A very strong display at the back. Kept the Genoa defence very quiet and earned Juve the penalty that ultimately secured the result.

6.5 / 10

Patrice Evra

Bossed the left flank with his typical control and composure. Rarely let anything get by him and pushed forward every chance he could.

6.5 / 10

Mario Lemina

A slightly risky first half display quickly gave way to a mature and composed performance. Great tackles, good positioning, rarely let the ball get away from him but worked hard to win it back when he had to.

6.5 / 10

Stefano Sturaro

Solid but not spectacular. Defensively sound but lacked any real spark in the final third.


Paul Pogba

Played a part in both Juve’s goal, the first hitting the crossbar and rebounding in off the keeper, the second, a nicely taken penalty.


Juan Cuadrado

Absolutely bossed the right hand side and never stopped running at/through Genoa. The majority of Juve’s attacks all came through his superb play.

7.5 /10

Alvaro Morata

Looked bright to start with but was substituted early on after injury.

6.0 / 10

Mario Mandzukic

Held up play at times but was also immensely frustrating late in the game, failing to find the target or shooting straight at the keeper.

6.0 / 10



Roberto Pereyra

Came on for Morata and added another dimension to the Juve attack – Provided the cross that opened Juve’s scoring.


Simone Zaza
