Juventus Player Ratings vs Napoli: New Chapter in Gatti Fairytale

At the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Juventus hosted Napoli in the biggest showdown of Serie A Round 15. In a classic Massimiliano Allegri fashion, the Bianconeri snatched the lead and vigorously defended it until the final whistle. For the second Friday night in a row, Federico Gatti was the hero after clinching yet another winner. The defender’s second-half header was worth three points as well as a morale-boosting victory. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who extended their unbeaten streak to ten matches with a 1-0 win over Napoli.

Juventus (3-5-2)

Wojciech Szczesny – 7

Although he only had a single big save to make, the Pole’s stop against Giovanni Di Lorenzo will probably go down as the save of the week. Almost gifted Victor Osimhen the equalizer with a poor throw, but was spared the blushes by the offside flag.

Federico Gatti – 8

The former Serie D player enjoyed yet another magical night at the Allianz as he pulled off the winner with a towering header. He also managed to keep Khvicha Kvaratskhelia at bay in what was a sensational performance.

Gleison Bremer – 6.5

The Brazilian was guilty of abandoning his teammates at the back and surging forward which ultimately gave Kvara a golden chance to equalize. But aside from that blemish, it was a great display against Osimhen in particular.

Danilo – 7

The Juventus captain was always there to support Brermer in his feud against Osimhen all while winning his own duel against Matteo Politano with ease.

Andrea Cambiaso – 7

A courageous display from the former Genoa man who wasn’t afraid of taking on his marker on the wing or getting involved in a skirmish against Kvaratskhelia. Provided the assist for Gatti with a wonderful cross.

Weston McKennie – 6.5

A generous outing from the Texan who was quite literally all over the field. Played a role in the winner and combined well with Chiesa and Vlahovic.

Manuel Locatelli – 6.5

A solid if unspectacular display from the former Sassuolo man. Helped his side win the middle of the park battle, even if had a few scares.

Adrien Rabiot – 6.5

The Frenchman ran his socks off for 90 minutes and more. Prevailed in his duel against Zambo Anguissa.

Filip Kostic – 6.5

Although he didn’t drive forward on too many occasions, the Juventus winger made his presence felt whenever he charged forward. Frustrated Politano who couldn’t find a way past him.

Dusan Vlahovic – 6

The Serbian should have taken his shot quicker before allowing Natan to block him from close range. Almost scored in the second half but his first-time shot was denied by the post. But a decent outing overall before it ended with a knock.

Federico Chiesa – 6.5

An energetic display from the former Fiorentina man who teed up Vlahovic with a glorious pass. He was a thorn in Napoli’s side with his terrifying runs.
