Juventus Player Ratings vs Frosinone: Rugani the Unlikely Hero

In Sunday’s early Serie A kickoff, Juventus hosted Frosinone at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. The first half was a thrilling back-and-forth affair, with Dusan Vlahovic giving the home side an early lead and then having to equalize after finding his team trailing due to goals from Walid Cheddira and Marco Brescianini. After the break, the visitors managed to frustrate the Old Lady, but a 95th-minute winner from Daniele Rugani put a timely end to the club’s four-match winless run. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who just avoided another disappointment with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Frosinone.

Juventus (3-5-2)

Wojciech Szczesny – 5

The former Arsenal man reacted slowly on the first Frosinone goal, but the power took it past him on the second. Frosinone never gave him the chance to atone afterwards.

Federico Gatti – 6.5

The former Frosinone man kept driving forward to support his team’s attacks. Instigated the opening goal and almost scored another himself.

Gleison Bremer – 6

The Brazilian seemed impeded by an early booking which forced him to remain on the safe side of the action. A decent outing overall, even if it wasn’t his most convincing.

Daniele Rugani – 7

The Italian defender emerged as the unlikely hero with a last-minute winner that even the most prolific of strikers would have been proud of given the acute angle. Perhaps he could have done better on Frosinone’s second goal, but he certainly made amends by claiming the first Juventus winner in several weeks.

Andrea Cambiaso – 6

The former Genoa man was all over the pitch, and also provided the pre-assist for the second goal. But he completely lost Cheddira on the equalizer.

Weston McKennie – 6.5

An action-packed day for the USMNT star who delivered two assists to Vlahovic, but almost gifted the opponents a goal with a careless pass at the back. He rectified his mistake with a suicidal block, but it earned him a shoulder injury.

Manuel Locatelli – 5.5

The Euro 2020 winner was too soft on Nadir Zortea who produced the assist to Cheddira. On the other hand, he found mild success with his long-ball delivery.

Adrien Rabiot – 5.5

The stand-in Juventus captain sustained a knock in the first half that cut his outing short before he could even produce anything noteworthy.

Filip Kostic – 5

Another underwhelming performance from the Serbian winger who didn’t properly close in on Brescianini who scored Frosinone’s second goal. He’ll have to do much more to justify a starting berth at Juventus.

Federico Chiesa – 5

The Italian is enduring a torrid run and just doesn’t seem to be capable of pulling off the spectaculars at the moment.

Dusan Vlahovic – 8

Kudos to Rugani for scoring the winner, but Vlahovic was easily the Man of the Match. Took his two goals exceptionally well, kept urging his teammates forward, and eventually flicked the header which proved to be the assist for the valuable winner.


Carlos Alcaraz – 5.5

The young Argentine lacked precision in his shooting and passing but always looked to advance the play.

Timothy Weah – 5.5

Not a bad outing from the American but still lacks the final touch.

Kenan Yildiz – 5

A forgettable afternoon for the teenager who replaced Chiesa without providing any upgrade.

Samuel Iling-Junior – 6.5

The Englishman turned out to be the winning card for Juventus. Helped the team win a corner kick and his delivery culminated in the last-minute winner.

Arkadiusz Milik – N/A
