Juan Cuadrado (RM) – 5/10 – Juve often settled in a 5-3-2 block when Roma left-back Matias Vina ventured forward. This forced Cuadrado into the defensive line, meaning he fulfilled a similar function to the one he performed against Chelsea. The Colombian switched the play effectively in the first half, while his intelligence and industry contributed to Juve’s rigid block. Frequent errors, however, undermined his display.
Manuel Locatelli (CM) – 5.5/10 – Mourinho opted against man-marking Locatelli in the build-up, although his influence in this regard was minimal. Locatelli displayed plenty of grit, but his positioning was often questionable. Lorenzo Pellegrini frequently drifted off the Juve star between the lines.
Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) – 7/10 – Another fine performance from the Uruguayan, who’s slowly becoming a key man in Allegri’s side – especially on the big night. Sure, he isn’t perfect in possession, but he was so often to mop up in the defensive phase on Sunday night. He hassled and harried to disturb Roma’s midfield, too.
Federico Bernardeschi (LM) – 6.5/10 – De Sciglio’s positioning facilitated Bernardeschi’s movement inside. Following a quiet first half, the Italian sprung into life with a highlight reel of a second period. There was a wonderful overhead kick, a delightful switch of play with the outside of his left boot and a fierce drive from distance that almost rippled the net.
