Juventus Player Ratings vs Sassuolo: Fagioli Blunder Depicts Poor Bianconeri

On Sunday evening, Juventus came away from the Mapei Stadium empty-handed after suffering defeat at the hands of their hosts Sassuolo. The Bianconeri were below-par from start to finish, and Gregoire Defrel punished them by scoring the solitary goal of the encounter after entering the pitch in the second half. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who lost their second domestic match in a row, this time against Sassuolo.

Juventus (3-5-2)

Mattia Perin – 7

The Italian shot-stopper didn’t deserve to be on the losing side. He was arguably the best among Massimiliano Allegri’s men, producing a stunning reaction save in the second half. But he just couldn’t do anything about Defrel’s low drive.

Federico Gatti – 6

The former Frosinone man made a vital goal-line clearance, but he lost his man on some occasions. He was also wasteful in possession.

Gleison Bremer – 6

A fine display from the Brazilian defender who kept Andrea Pinamonti in his pocket. But he just didn’t have enough time to block Defrel’s shot.

Danilo – 6.5

The Juventus captain produced a string of timely interceptions and won the vast majority of his duels against Nedim Bajrami. Tried to test Andrea Consigli from long range, but it wasn’t a dangerous shot.

Tommaso Barbieri – 5.5

A mixed bag from the young debutant who started on a positive note but found difficulties later on. He eventually left his post for Juan Cuadrado after 56 minutes.

Nicolò Fagioli – 4.5

The young midfielder was reduced to tears after getting hauled off, as he was the main culprit behind Sassuolo’s goal due to a botched clearance. Even prior to this mistake, he wasn’t enjoying his finest display.

Leandro Paredes – 5.5

The Argentine worked hard to retrieve the ball, but he just didn’t add enough quality on the ball for this sterile Juventus side.

Adrien Rabiot – 5.5

The Frenchman almost grabbed the equalizer with a fine header, but was denied by a majestical save from Consigli. He also struggled in his duel against Davide Frattesi.

Filip Kostic – 5.5

The former Frankfurt man trotted up and down the left flank, but couldn’t quite deliver his trademark crosses.

Arkadiusz Milik – 5.5

The Pole had to play in an unusual role between the lines to accommodate Vlahovic. While he didn’t embarrass himself, he couldn’t offer the required creativity, and it surely wasn’t his fault.

Dusan Vlahovic – 5.5

The Serbian gets an extra point for his willingness to chase lost causes. His teammates kept throwing desperate long balls in his direction, but never truly provided him with decent service.


Juan Cuadrado – 6

The Colombian veteran added energy to the right flank and fought hard until the final whistle.

Angel Di Maria – 5.5

The Argentine delivered the corner kick which almost resulted in Rabiot’s goal. However, he should have done better when he had to chance to score himself.

Fabio Miretti – 5.5

The youngster replaced Fagioli before filling in as Regista following Paredes’ exit. Add little to the cause.

Federico Chiesa – 5

A below-average cameo based on the winger’s high standards. His physical condition will be a major concern for Juventus supporters in the coming days.

Paul Pogba – N/A
