February 16, 2019

Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show as he scored and set up a goal for Paulo Dybala in Juve’s 3-0 demolition of Frosinone.

 

Juventus Player Ratings

Woj Szczesny: One save to make all game and could quite easily have sat this one out on the sidelines, such was the control Juventus exerted over this game. 6.0/10

Giorgio Chiellini: Eight aerial challenges won, two clearances, one interception and a great run out for the captain on his return from injury. Dominant. 7.0/10

Leonardo Bonucci: Four clearances, great positioning at the back throughout, scored an easy goal but it gave Juve some relief and sucked the life out of Frosinone. A great moment near the end when he ran to intercept a possible altercation between Cancelo and Goldaniga. Calmed the situation and offered some important words to his teammate. Bravo. 7.0/10

Mattia De Sciglio: Made some vital clearances and was solid in his defensive duties but offered little in terms of attacking threat. No bad thing though as the Juve attack looked very capable and needed little support from the full-backs. 6.0/10

Joao Cancelo: Not his best game as he looked a little more subdued than usual, but a good display nonetheless. Made some decent dribbles forward, cleared the danger twice and looked solid without being spectacular for a change. 6.0/10

 

Midfield

Sami Khedira: One of his better displays to continue the trend of good recent performances. Ran into the box regularly to pressure the Frosinone back line and could have scored a goal had he got there ahead of Bonucci. Made a couple of key passes and seems to be peaking at the right time. 6.5/10

Emre Can: Probably one of his best recent displays, such was his control in midfield. Made six tackles, three interceptions and two clearances to cap a fine display sitting in front of the defence instead of to the right. 7.0/10

Rodrigo Bentancur: A good enough showing as his work rate couldn’t be faulted. Sprinted up and down the pitch, got stuck in with the tackles and his passing was on point. He is gradually finding his feet again. 6.5/10

 

Attack

Paulo Dybala:  Sometimes, I think confidence is key to Dybala. He needs to feel that people are behind him and following last weekends antics, he looked geared up for this game. Was all over the pitch from the start, linking the attack and midfield and pulling Frosinone all over the pitch. Took his goal in such fine style, a throwback to the goals he used to score: Spectacular. 67/72 passes completed and a perfect time to see the Dybala of old.  8.0/10

Mario Mandzukic: Continues to be the Juve Swiss Army Knife – Attacks, drops deep, vital on opposition set pieces – A guy who can do most anything for the team, including assist his teammes as he did for Ronaldo’s goal. A typically hard-working display. 7.0/10

Cristiano Ronaldo: Superb from start to finish. A goal and an assist for the third game in a row, taking his tally to 19 league goals already. You could see his dominance all night as he attempted to kill off the game nice and early. Linked well with his teammates and I feel he’s improved his all round game since being at Juve, such is his awareness of those around him.  8.5/10

 

Substitutes

Martin Caceres: Came on for Chiellini and kept the back secure to close the game out. 6.0/10

Miralem Pjanic: A brief run out to warm the legs and prepare for the midweek game.  N/A

Federico Bernardeschi: Could and should have scored a fourth but he was a great runner to have off the bench.  6.0/10
