Juventus Player Ratings vs Sassuolo: Vlahovic Is Back!

In the closing curtain of Serie A Round 20, Juventus hosted Sassuolo at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. Unlike the reverse fixture that saw the Old Lady suffer her only defeat of the season thus far, the home side comfortably marched towards victory, led by the revitalized Dusan Vlahovic. The Serbian confirmed his positive run by scoring two astonishing strikes in the first half which made life much easier for the Bianconeri. Federico Chiesa came off the bench to add a third in the dying minutes. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who remain on Inter’s trail with 3-0 win over Sassuolo.

Juventus (3-5-2)

Wojciech Szczesny – 7

Despite what the final scoreline may suggest, the former Arsenal man still had an integral role to play in preserving his team’s lead. Pulled off a solid save on Armand Lauriente in the first half and then a stunning reaction stop to deny Domenico Berardi’s deflected shot.

Daniele Rugani – 6.5

The Italian kept it clean and tidy at the back with his cool demeanor and certainly limited Lauriente’s threat..

Gleison Bremer – 7

An almost bullish display from the Brazilian defender who simply ate Andrea Pinamonti alive in what proved to be an agonizing mismatch for the former Inter striker.

Danilo – 7

The Juventus captain produced a series of vital interceptions to deny the opposition. He was entrusted with the task of marking Berardi and did fairly well.

Andrea Cambiaso – 6.5

The former Genoa man made himself involved in almost every action, even if he found some difficulties in skipping past Mattia Viti. Started as a right wingback but then had a cameo in midfield, showcasing his versatility.

Fabio Miretti – 6

The Juventus youth product was at times wasteful on the ball and Massimiliano Allegri decided to haul him off early in the second half. Nevertheless, he left the pitch with an assist to his name after passing the ball to Vlahovic on the opener.

Manuel Locatelli – 7

A splendid display from the 26-year-old who bossed the middle of the park against his former employers. Rounded off a memorable night by providing the assist for Chiesa’s goal.

Adrien Rabiot – 6

The Frenchman rushed back from a slight injury to regain his automatic starting berth, but he understandably didn’t seem to be at his best. Yet, he still covered every ounce of the pitch.

Filip Kostic – 6

The Serbian winger has been placed under growing scrutiny recently, but put up a decent if unspectacular display against the Emilians.

Kenan Yildiz – 6

The latest Juventus revelation showcased his incredible skillset with his some fascinating dribbles, but was slightly less efficient in his final touch this time.

Dusan Vlahovic – 8.5

A superb performance from the former Fiorentina bomber who opened the scoring with a fabulous curler that dipped into the far corner, before tormenting Andrea Consigli with a vicious freekick. He’s finally looking like the Vlahovic of old.


Federico Chiesa – 6.5

The Italy star announced his return from injury by putting his stamp on the win with a late third goal. While it was a scrappy finish, it will serve as a valuable morale booster.

Timothy Weah – 5

The American squandered a glorious opportunity to score while his passing and crossing left much to be desired.

Arkadiusz Milik – 6

The Pole’s pressing game paved the way for Chiesa’s goal.

Samuel Iling-Junior – N/A

Alex Sandro – N/A
