Juventus Player Ratings vs Udinese: Chiesa Fails to Impress

At the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Juventus hosted Udinese in the closing curtain of the Serie A weekend. The Bianconeri were hoping to get back to winning tracks against a relegation-threatened side, but instead sustained their first defeat at home this season. Lautaro Gianetti pounced on some scrappy defending to poach his maiden Serie A goal in the 25th minute, and it proved to be the only difference between the two sides. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who have all but surrendered the Scudetto title to Inter with a 0-1 defeat at the hands of Udinese.

Juventus (3-5-2)

Wojciech Szczesny – 6

The former Arsenal man was faultless on the goal, and besides picking up the ball from his net, he spent the evening as a mere spectator.

Federico Gatti – 6

The former Frosinone man pushed forward and even tested Maduka Okaye with a powerful drive when Juventus were searching for an equalizer.

Gleison Bremer – 6.5

The Brazilian didn’t deserve to wind up on the losing side. Won his duel against the gigantic Lorenzo Lucca and had to take one for the team by stopping a counter-attack which earned him a suspension for the next match against Verona.

Alex Sandro – 4.5

The veteran replaced his suspended compatriot Danilo but ended up being the main culprit on the goal. His poor clearance inadvertently offered the goal to Gianetti on a silver plate. Tried to atone himself with a cross to Milik, but the latter couldn’t put it in the net.

Timothy Weah – 5

A forgettable outing from the USMNT star who offered very little on the right wing before making way for Yildiz.

Weston McKennie – 6

An energetic display from the former Schalke man but playing at right-back in the second half didn’t help his case. He surely had better nights this season.

Manuel Locatelli – 6

The Euro 2020 winner did well to shield the backline but his ball distribution was hit and miss.

Adrien Rabiot – 6

A hard-working display from the Frenchman but still felt short considering his high standards. Tried to combine with his teammates but the flaw was amiss.

Andrea Cambiaso – 6.5

On another night, the Italian wingback could have grabbed himself a couple of assists. Set up Milik and Yildiz brilliantly and was the main source of creativity for Juventus.

Arkadiusz Milik – 5

The Pole failed to make the best out of this opportunity with Dusan Vlahovic injured. Wasted two glorious chances and only scored a scrappy goal that was swiftly ruled out.

Federico Chiesa – 5

The former Fiorentina star simply tried too hard to force the action, but the packed-up opposition dealt easily with his telegraphed runs and dribbles. Couldn’t guide Juventus towards victory.


Kenan Yildiz – 5

The teenager entered the pitch in the second half to a big roar from the crowd, but ultimately failed to make an impression. Constantly gave the ball away, at times in dangerous positions.

Hans Nicolussi Caviglia – 5.5

A few decent crosses from the midfielder but he was never likely to be the winning card for Juventus.

Samuel Iling-Junior – 5.5

The Englishman struggled to make an impact in an unfamiliar position on the right wing.

Leonardo Cerri – N/A

It was not the Serie A debut the young striker was hoping for.
