Posted on 06/01/2010


The visitors held on for a slim 2-1 win over the Gialloblu. rates the participants…


Manninger- 7.5:
 Showed his talent when needed, as he palmed away vicious efforts from Biabiany and Amoruso in the first-half.

Caceres- 4.0: His runs forward and sliding tackles leave Juventus exposed and it was no surprise he was ejected with 20 minutes remaining. He and his team-mates did not even attempt to complain to the referee.

Legrottaglie- 5.0: He was twice left for dead by Biabiany, as well as missing an open header to kill of the match.

Chiellini- 7.5: The Italian international is the saving grace for the Bianconeri at the back, his physical but fair play makes him one of the most feared defenders in the league.

Grosso- 6.0:
 Often provided assistance for his team-mates in attack and defence, but failed to find a telling cross or shot from some good positions.

Salihamidzic- 6.0:
 He opened the scoring, but was invisible for long portions of the match and it was not unexpected when he was substituted in the second-half.

Melo- 5.0:
 The Brazilian has not improved much in the new year and seemed rather nervous during the course of the match, especially in the latter stages.

Poulsen- 6.5: 
Juventus‘ best midfielder on the day, Poulsen was outworked in the first-half, but adapted well in the second to settle his side and make some crucial interceptions.

Marchisio- 6.0:
 Plenty of running on the left-flank, but little end product. This is not his best position.

Diego- 6.5: 
The ex-Werder Bremen star was excellent in the second-half, providing some much needed creativity for his side and driving forward. He was sacrificed though onceJuventus went down to ten men.

Trezeguet- N/A:
 Lasted only 20 minutes before succumbing to injury and being replaced by Amauri.


Amauri- 6.0: His best moments were in the last ten minutes of the match, as he was a crucial outlet for his team-mates holding up the ball.

Grygera- 6.0:
 Slotted in at right-back after Caceres’ exit.

De Ceglie- N/A
