Udinese 0 – 0 Juventus Player Ratings – Week 21

February 1, 2015

Juventus dominated the match but found their chances limited by a resolute Udinese side who held out for an impressive 0-0.

Udinese had chances of their own in the match, including some great counter attacks started by Toto Di Natale. The Juve defence looked vulnerable early on while the midfield was well marshalled and chances up front were limited.

Juve’s best chances came from Roberto Pereyra who hit the upright while Carlos Tevez wasted a golden opportunity to win it late one by shooting wide.

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

 

Gianluigi Buffon

Had to endure a few nervy moments as Udinese threatened early on. Tested twice by Di Natale but his effort was straight at Gigi. Needed to be at his best and turned in another solid performance.

6.5 / 10


Stephan Lichtsteiner

Spent much of the game in Udineses’ half, trying to create something of use for the strikers. Marshalled well by the Udinese defence and ineffectual for large parts of the game.

5.5 / 10


Leonardo Bonucci

Covered Di Natale well early on, and provided some great overhead balls for the strikers to chase but his positioning was poor on some of Udinese’s through balls.

5.5 / 10


Giorgio Chiellini

Made some poor passes and was caught out on more than one occasion by the Udinese front line.

5.5 / 10


Martin Caceres

Much like his fellow CB’s, his passing and decision making was poor at times. Pushed forward when he could but ultimately a game to forget.

5.5/ 10


Andrea Pirlo

Had to resort to balls over the top again and again, many of which failed to find their target. Poor on his corners and made a mistake late on that could have let Udinese in.

6.0 / 10


Roberto Pereyra

One of the few bright sparks in a game to forget. Almost opened the scoring for Juventus but his effort hit the upright. Tried to create chances when he could but was kept quiet by the Udinese midfield.

6.5 / 10


Paul Pogba

A bright start but quickly silended by Allan who kept Pogba in his pocket for much of the game.

6.0 / 10


Patrice Evra

Provided little to no attacking threat and his defensive contribution looked poor as well.

5.5 / 10


Carlos Tevez

Shot wide of Karnezis’ near post from a tight angle early on and had a great chance to steal all 3 points at the end of the game but put his effort way wide.

6.0 / 10


Fernando Llorente

Nearly capitalised on a Karnezis error early on, more mobile than in previous matches. Missed a huge chance to put Juve a goal up when he put his header wide and drifted out of the game afterwards.

5.5 / 10

 

Substitutes

Alvaro Morata

Gave Juve some more energy and movement up front and set up Tevez for what should have been the winner.
