Player Ratings


Bob Szczesny: Made a good save in the first half but was seldom troubled afterwards. Great ball distribution throughout and another easy save late on to see the game out.  6.5/10

Giorgio Chiellni: Great positioning at the back, kept Belotti well marked and barely gave the striker an inch of space. Used all his defensive cunning to draw fouls in tight spots and even managed to gallop forward on occasion. 7.0/10

Daniele Rugani: Played the ball out from the back with real confidence and dealt very well with a Torino counterattack early on. Closed up the space at the back and made some telling clearances. 7.0/10

Kwadwo Asamoah: Strong and intimidating, he was good in the tackle and made his presence felt. Had a great half volley cleared off the line and did his defensive duties well. 6.0/10

Mattia De Sciglio: A quiet first half but at no stage did he look overly troubled by Ansaldi. Played a more defensive role in the second half but once against had the measure of Niang. 6.0/10



Sami Khedira: Hard to fault his passing game as he spent more time trying to get in the opposition half than sitting in midfield. Offered nothing of note and played too advanced on occasion to offer Pjanic any real support.  5.5/10

Stefano Sturaro: Much better than in recent games – Made his presence more felt in the centre of the pitch and disrupted some Toro attacks. Good to see him running into the box to pressure Sirigu on a number of occasions.  6.0/10

Miralem Pjanic: Tested Sirigu with a great free-kick in the first half. Afforded more space to manoeuvre as the game developed but had to keep dropping deep to collect the ball.  6.5/10



Alex Sandro: A massive improvement – Dynamic and full of pace, keeping Silvestri pegged back. In the right place at the right time to give Juve the lead with an easy tap-in and was blistering down the left-flank.  7.0/10

Douglas Costa: Switched to the centre after Higuain’s injury and looked all the better for it, making some excellent dribbles and getting into the right spaces. 6.0/10

Gonzalo Higuain: Subbed off after picking up an ankle injury early on in the game.  N/A



Federico Bernardeschi: Came on in place of Higuain and immediately settled into the game by pushing high up and pressing Molinaro. Did all the hard work in the build up to Juve’s opener, putting in a perfect cross for Sandro to finish. His movement off the ball was exceptional and his runs into the box made it hard for Toro to keep him marked. 7.0/10

Paulo Dybala: Returned to action and was in the thick of it immediately, creating three half chances, one of which he should have scored.  6.0/10

Stephan Lichtsteiner: A few minutes to make a late cameo, nothing of note. N/A
