Despite all the noise surrounding the club, Juventus still had a match to contend on Sunday, as they hosted Atalanta at the Allianz Stadium, and what a thrilling show this turned out to be. In a spectacular back-and-forth affair, the Old Lady and La Dea traded blows throughout the course of the match which ended with the two sides sharing the spoils. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who earned a point on the back of a 3-3 draw with Atalanta.
Wojciech Szczesny – 4.5
The pole almost put a fingertip to Joakim Maehle’s goal and was left with no chance on Ademola Lookman’s second goal, but he surely should have done better to prevent the Nigerian’s initial strike which easily beat him at his near post.
Danilo – 6
A mixed bag from the Juventus captain who committed a grave blunder by cheaply giving the ball away which culminated in Atalanta’s second goal. Nonetheless, he atoned himself by snatching the 3-3 equalizer with a low drive.
Gleison Bremer – 7
A fabulous showing at the back from the former Torino man who rebounded in an empathic fashion following his horror show in Naples. Frustrated Rasmus Hojlund and then Luis Muriel.
Alex Sandro – 4.5
The Brazilian failed to block Lookman’s shot which resulted in Atalanta’s initial goal. The Nigerian also had the better of him in the areal duel.
Weston McKennie – 5.5
A decent if not spectacular showing from the American as his experiment at right wingback continued. Linked up well with Di Maria on some occasions, but his effect dwindled as the match progressed.
Nicolò Fagioli – 6.5
The young midfielder was instrumental for Juventus. Won the penalty which led to the first goal, and provided the assist for Milik’s strike.
Manuel Locatelli – 6
A solid showing from the former Sassuolo man who was everywhere on the pitch. Won the freekick which led to Danilo’s equalizer.
Adrien Rabiot – 6
The Frenchman started on the right foot, and won back the ball which culminated in Milik’s goal. However, he didn’t seem to be at his best physically.
Filip Kostic – 5
A poor showing from the Serbian who failed to make himself noticed during the first hour before leaving his place on the pitch for Chiesa.
Angel Di Maria – 7.5
A splendid showing from the Argentine veteran who scored the Bianconeri’s first from the spot. He then pulled off a fancy flick which instigated Milik’s goal, before providing the assist for Danilo with a clever freekick. He’s rapidly becoming Juve’s main talisman, but doesn’t have the legs to deliver 90 minutes at the moment.
Arkadiusz Milik – 7
Any striker who can direct a half-volley towards the corner with his weaker foot deserves some serious plaudits. The Pole also had a claim for two penalty kicks which were waived off by the official.
Federico Chiesa – 5.5
The winger didn’t enjoy his best outing. He wasted several plays with mistimed passes.
Fabio Miretti – 5
The young Italian isn’t a striker, but he must absolutely improve his finishing skills. He could have bagged the winner for Juventus with the goal at this mercy, but scuffed his shot away.
Moise Kean – 6
An energetic cameo from the former PSG man. Won back the ball in a dangerous area and created a golden opportunity for Miretti.
Juan Cuadrado – N/A
