Player Ratings: Juventus 3-2 Genoa

Posted on 14/02/2010



Buffon- 5: Made one decisive stop on Sculli in the second-half, but was wrong footed on the first goal and then fumbled a cross to allow the second

Zebina- 6.5: The veteran did a fairly good job, twice clearing the danger from Acquafresca and El Shaarawi.

Legrottaglie- 6: 
The Italian was relatively solid, even if he was caught flat-footed a couple time early on.

Chiellini- 6: The Italian international always showed great desire and out-muscled the Grifoni strikers, but he was megged by Acquafresca’s assist for the initial goal.

Caceres- 6.5:
 A bit gung-ho going forward, but left Sculli and Criscito for dead as he set up Amauri’s goal with an accurate cross to the far post.

Candreva- 5: A few long range strikes that were off target from the ex-Livorno player, but nothing more

Sissoko- 5.5:
 A lot of hard work in midfield.

De Ceglie- 4:
 The player struggled to deal with Mesto and Rossi and was always pressed back into his own end for long portions of the match.

Diego- 6.5: He came into the match much more in the second-half and his backheel assist for Del Piero’s was brilliant. He showed he can be a difference maker for the Bianconeri.

Amauri- 6.5: His great effort was rewarded as he ended his goal-drought with his first goal since October with a fine header.

Del Piero- 8: 
Not a vintage performance by any means, but he turned back the years by showing great skill to link up with Diego and poke in his first and also confidently dispatched a spot-kick to complete his brace.


Marchisio- 7: Did a great job in a holding midfield role for Bianconeri and settled the midfield. The team looked much more in charge and compact with his introduction.

Salihamidzic- 6: Was willing to run, but wasted a promising counter late on.

Giovinco – N/A.
