Juventus Player Ratings vs Verona: Kean Strike Settles Joyless Affair

At the Allianz Stadium, Juventus picked up from where they left before the international break, picking up a routine win at the expense of Verona. Reminiscent of the reverse fixture, a second-half strike from Moise Kean was the lone difference between the two sides. So let’s have a look at the player ratings of Juventus after earning a 1-0 victory over Verona from what turned out to be a cagey affair.

Juventus (3-5-2)

Wojciech Szczesny – 6.5

A not-so-eventful evening for the former Arsenal goalkeeper, but he had earned his clean sheet by beating Kevin Lasagna to the ball and pulling off a vital save on Filippo Terracciano.

Federico Gatti – 7

Another performance outing from the Italian defender who’s improving with every outing. Showed his composure at the back and found some success with the ball at his feet. Put Bremer through on goal with a clever header.

Gleison Bremer – 6

It was a solid outing from the Brazilian at the back as he won his personal duel against Adolfo Gaich. However, he loses points for his poor passing and missed sitter.

Danilo – 6.5

The Juventus captain was adventurous, going forward on several occasions and even trying his luck at goal when he almost scored from a deflected shot.

Juan Cuadrado – 6

The Colombian put on a vibrant display for 65 minutes, but his delivery was hit-and-miss. He didn’t seem too pleased with Massimiliano Allegri’s decision to take him off, but the manager was probably thinking about next Tuesday’s Coppa Italia clash against Inter.

Nicolò Fagioli – 6.5

The young midfielder was one of the few Juventus players who tried to put up a series of passes together in the first half. Worked hard to retrieve the ball as well.

Manuel Locatelli – 6.5

The former Sassuolo man put up an improved display in the second half following 45 forgettable minutes. Provided the assist for Kean’s winner.

Enzo Barrenechea – 5

The young Argentine has a decent work rate but his passing leaves a lot to be desired. He only lasted for one half, leaving his spot for Fabio Miretti after the break.

Mattia De Sciglio – 5

One would be forgiven for failing to notice the Italian’s presence on the pitch during the first half, as he kept his contribution at a minimum. His display slightly improved after switching to the right flank, but it remains too little to write home about.

Moise Kean – 7

Having just returned from a two-match ban, the Italian striker earned another suspension by picking up a yellow card. Yet, he made his appearance count by beating Lorenzo Montipò from his lone clear-cut chance.

Arkadiusz Milik – 5.5

The Pole made his return from a long layoff and lasted for 60 minutes. While it wasn’t his most spectacular outing, he won a few fouls, including one from a dangerous position.


Fabio Miretti – 6.5

The young man’s introduction immediately paid off, as his splendid first-time touch was essential in the goal’s buildup.

Angel Di Maria – 6

The Argentine made himself involved in the action, but at times struggled to get past his marker. Delivered a fabulous cross to the box which was eventually wasted by Bremer.

Dusan Vlahovic – 5.5

The former Fiorentina man was engaged in endless physical duels against Verona defenders during his second-half cameo, but never truly had a sniff at goal.

Filip Kostic – 6

Juventus dearly missed the Serbian’s impact on the left flank during the first half. Caused some havoc following his entry.
