At the Dacia Arena in Udine, Juventus took on Udinese in their final fixture of the 2022/23 campaign. A second-half strike from Federico Chiesa sealed all three points for the visitors, but it wasn’t enough to book a spot in the Europa League, as Atalanta and Roma both won their matches. So here are our player ratings for Juventus who will participate in the Conference League next season (barring a UEFA ban) despite their 1-0 victory over Udinese.
Wojciech Szczesny – 6.5
While it wasn’t his busiest evening, the former Roma custodian still made his presence felt in the final stages, especially with an impressive save on Sandy Lovric’s shot.
Federico Gatti – 6.5
A solid showing from the Italian defender who pulled off a decisive last-minute block to maintain the result.
Leonardo Bonucci – 6
The Juventus captain may have played his last match for the Old Lady based on the way he left the pitch while greeting his teammates. His reaction was late on some occasions, while his header rattled the post.
Danilo – 7
A defensive masterclass from the Bona Fide Bianconeri leader who made a string of crucial interceptions including a slick intervention to dispossess Beto.
Juan Cuadrado – 6
The Colombian didn’t dart forward as much as he usually does, but he held his own against the younger Destiny Udogie in their personal duel.
Fabio Miretti – 6
A decent performance from the youngster who worked extremely hard to retrieve the ball and did well to integrate himself between Udinese’s defensive lines. But still needs to improve his final touch.
Manuel Locatelli – 6.5
The Euro 2020 winner started on a slow note but grew stronger as the match progressed. Kept himself busy in the middle of the park and provided the assist for Chiesa.
Adrien Rabiot – 6
The Frenchman was hoping to score on his final Juventus outing, but his final touch let him down on some occasions. Decent display overall but nothing spectacular.
Filip Kostic – 5.5
While it wasn’t an abysmal display from the Serbian by any means, he just couldn’t make the expected impact on the left flank and was hauled off at halftime in favor of Iling-Junior.
Federico Chiesa – 7
The former Fiorentina man once again delivered the goods against Udinese. After threatening Marco Silvestri on a couple of occasions, he broke the deadlock with a clever turn followed by a clinical shot.
Arkadiusz Milik – 6
The Pole never truly had the chance to score, but seemed to be a man possessed, fighting for the ball all over the pitch in a hardworking display that won’t go unnoticed by the Juventus directors who must make a decision on his future in the coming weeks.
Samuel Iling-Junior – 6.5
A positive introduction and an obvious upgrade on Kostic. The Englishman lit up the left flank with his menacing runs and even played a part in the buildup of the solitary goal.
Angel Di Maria – 6
The Argentine veteran was hellbent on bowing out in style in what was his final Juventus appearance. While his introduction added some flair to the final third, he lacked the final touch. But a good cameo overall.
Leandro Paredes – N/A
Moise Kean – N/A
Daniele Rugani – N/A
