Juventus Player Ratings vs Genoa: Frustrating Bianconeri Squander Two Points

In the curtain-raiser of Serie A Round 16, Genoa welcomed Juventus to the Luigi Ferraris Stadium on Friday night. Federico Chiesa won and converted a spot kick to put the Bianconeri in the lead in the middle of the first half. However, the Grifone replied straight after the interval through Albert Gudmundsson and even pushed for the winner against the scrappy visitors. But in the end, the two sides shared the spoils. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who dropped two important points on the road with a 1-1 draw against Genoa.

Juventus (3-5-2)

Wojciech Szczesny – 6

The former Arsenal goalkeeper tried to pull off a miraculous save to deny Gudmundsson but his fingertips surely weren’t enough to thwart the powerful attempt. Did well to clear his lines against Caleb Ekuban’s charge.

Federico Gatti – 5.5

After scoring back-to-back winners in the last two outings, it was a relatively underwhelming outing from the Italian defender. Left Gudmundsson unmarked on the Genoa after charing off the line.

Gleison Bremer – 6

A decent display from the Brazilian though it wasn’t his most impressive of the season. His teammates left him alone against Ekuban and Gudmundsson on the goal, so he wasn’t truly the culprit on that occasion.

Danilo – 5.5

The Juventus captain was slightly off based on his high standards. Picked up a needless yellow and lost track of Ekuban ahead of the Genoa goal. Offered very little in the attacking phase.

Andrea Cambiaso – 6.5

The former Genoa captain started brilliantly on his old turf, proving to be the most productive of Massimiliano Allegri’s bunch. However, his impact dwindled as the match progressed.

Weston McKennie – 6

An energetic display as ever from the Texan who made some key contributions at the back while running his socks off in midfield. However, he lost the ball which directly led to Genoa’s goal.

Manuel Locatelli – 5.5

The former Sassuolo man was less composed than usual, and his delivery wasn’t always on point as he seemed to miss the comforting company of his usual midfield partner Adrien Rabiot.

Fabio Miretti – 5

The Juventus youth product struggled to impose himself in the battle for the middle of the park and was almost lost in the shuffle. His decision-making remains questionable.

Filip Kostic – 5.5

The former Eintracht Frankfurt star worked extremely hard at the back but posed little threat in the final third. The Juventus left flank was almost non-existent in the attacking phase.

Dusan Vlahovic – 5.5

The Serbian striker deserves credit for dispossessing his former Fiorentina teammate Milan Badelj and picking up Chiesa (which led to the spot kick), but this is where his positive contributions end. Squandered two inviting chances with poor touches.

Federico Chiesa – 6.5

The Euro 2020 winner did well to win the penalty kick after finding himself one-on-one against Josep Martinez. He also expertly converted it into goal. Chiesa also found Vlahovic with a lovely curler. But just like the rest of his teammates, he ran out of steam in the second period.


Arkadiusz Milik – 5.5

The Pole hardly had a sniff on the ball after coming in for Vlahovic. Yet, he still looked more composed than the Serbian.

Timothy Weah – 5

The USMNT star offered little to nothing on his return from injury. His passing was miscued.

Samuel Iling-Junior – 5.5

The Juventus youngster started his cameo in an awkward midfield role. He eventually switched to his natural role on the wing but it was too little too late.

Kenan Yildiz – N/A
