Juventus Player Ratings vs Monza: Palladino Inflicts More Misery on Allegri

For the second time in ten days, Juventus hosted Monza at the Allianz Stadium. But unlike their Coppa Italia meeting, it was the hosts who emerged victorious this time, thus becoming the first newly-promoted Serie A side to complete the double over the Bianconeri. Raffaele Palladino’s men dominated the first half and scored twice courtesy of Patrick Ciurria and Dany Mota. While the hosts displayed some signs of improvement in the second half, Michele Di Gregorio pulled off three fantastic saves to maintain a clean sheet. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who are now facing a full blown crisis following their 0-2 defeat against Monza.

Juventus (3-5-1-1)

Wojciech Szczesny – 5.5

The former Roma man wasn’t at fault on either goal, but he looked shaky overall, especially when Gianluca Caprari beat him at his near post before the goal was disallowed for a marginal offside.

Federico Gatti – 5.5

The former Frosinone man didn’t inspire confidence and was overrun along with the rest of the Juventus backline in the first half. His display improved after the break, but it was too little too late.

Gleison Bremer – 5

A day to forget for the Brazilian who kept losing possession in dangerous areas. Scored an obvious offside goal while the ball was heading towards the net anyway.

Danilo – 5.5

The captain was the pick of the defensive bunch, although it wasn’t his best outing. Fought hard for every ball while constantly switching positions in the second half

Mattia De Sciglio – 5.5

To the Italian’s credit, he was thrusted back to a starting role immediately following a long layoff. So it wasn’t a terrible performance based on the tough circumstances.

Nicolò Fagioli – 4.5

The young midfielder wasn’t at his best, and Massimiliano Allegri decided to sacrifice him in favor of a systematical shapeup.

Leandro Paredes – 4

A listless display from the World Cup winner on a rare starting chance. Lost his duel against Nicolò Rovella which should serve as an indication for the future of Juventus.

Adrien Rabiot – 5

A hollow display from the French midfielder who lost the duel which led to the second Monza goal. He didn’t fare much better in the final third.

Filip Kostic – 4

The Serbian has been woeful since the restart. Allowed Patrick Ciurria to sneak past him and score the opening goal. He wasn’t helpful on the opposite side either.

Angel Di Maria – 5

Right from the get-go, the Argentine’s struggles were evident, especially in his inaccurate passing. Though his splendid shot pulled off a world class save from Di Gregorio.

Moise Kean – 4

Whether with his chest or with his feet, the former PSG man couldn’t control the ball even if his life depended on it.


Matias Soulé – 6

The young Argentine added some flair to the right flank and set up Locatelli’s shot. But also lost the ball too easily on some occasions.

Manuel Locatelli – 6

The Juventus midfield instantly improved following the introduction for the Italy international. Tested Di Gregorio with a lovely shot.

Samuel Iling-Junior – 5

A forgettable outing from the Englishman who was hardly an upgrade on Kostic. Failed to skip past his marker on most occasions.

Arkadiusz Milik – 5.5

The Pole had a glorious chance from the edge of the box, but the Monza goalkeeper won the duel.

Dusan Vlahovic – 5

An unhappy return from the Serbian striker who couldn’t find space against opposition defenders. Will be hoping for better service in his next outing.
