Napoli Player Ratings vs Juventus: Kvara and Osimhen Destroy Old Lady

On Friday night, Napoli supporters flocked to the Maradona Stadium hoping for a vital victory which would ward off Juventus in the Scudetto race. But little did they know that they’ll be witnessing a truly historic occasion that would certainly exceed all of their expectations, as their stars humbled their northern rivals with five goals to one. So here are our player ratings for Napoli who stunned Juventus with an extraordinary display in the opening fixture of Serie A Round 18.

Napoli (4-3-3)

Alex Meret – 6

Aside for a few routine saves and picking up the ball from his own net on one occasion, the Italy international was able to enjoy the Napoli show from the best seat at the house.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo – 7.5

A dominant performance from the skipper who bossed the right flank from start to finish, getting the better of Filip Kostic and Federico Chiesa. Delivered the assist for Elmas’ goal.

Amir Rrahmani – 7

Aside from a howler which almost gifted Di Maria a goal, the Kosovan produced a solid showing at the back. Scored the crucial third goal with a wonderful strike which restored his side’s momentum.

Kim Min-jae – 6.5

The South Korea international committed a blunder which allowed Di Maria to score Juve’s lone goal, but was in command otherwise.

Mario Rui – 7.5

Another impressive showing from the perennially underrated left-back. Frustrated Weston McKennie with his relentless runs and won back possession which directly led to the fourth goal.

André-Frank Zambo Anguissa – 7

A strong showing from the Cameroonian who combined well with Lobotka and Zielinski, as Napoli won the midfield battle uncontested.

Stanislav Lobotka – 8

The Slovakian scored no goals nor did he produce any assists, yet, he was the main catalyst behind every exquisite Napoli play. This performance should crown him as the undisputed best Regista in Italian football.

Piotr Zielinski – 7

It wasn’t the Pole’s most spectacular performance, but this was all about teamwork. He was willing to do some dirty work in the middle of the park while making sure that his team maintains possession.

Matteo Politano – 7

A positive outing from the former Inter man who only lasted for one half. Picked up Kvaratskhelia with a lovely cross ahead of the opening goal.

Victor Osimhen – 8.5

A supreme performance from the Nigerian bomber who showcased why he’s widely acclaimed as the most dangerous striker in Serie A. Pounced on the rebound to break the deadlock, before picking up Kvaratskhelia for the second. Nodded home his team’s fourth to complete a well-deserved personal brace.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia – 9

A stunning outing from the outrageous winger who regained his optimal condition in the perfect timing. He left the pitch with one goal, two assists, but most importantly three crucial points in the Scudetto race.

What a display! What a player!
