Weston McKennie – 6/10 – McKennie position on the field was an odd one. Sometimes he would pop up in the left, sometimes at the centre and frequently in the right region of the midfield. It was as if he was playing as a floater in the midfield for Juventus. He made several forward runs into the box but the final piece of production didn’t come off his legs.
Rodrigo Bentancur – 6.5/10 – Rodrigo Bentancur was back in the midfield, making the forward runs and trying to penetrate the Zenit defence. Completing one key pass, the Uruguayan had 76 touches on the ball, showcasing how influential he was in the midfield for the Old Lady. If anything, he was seen playing the natural role of a box-to-box midfielder under the supervision of Max Allegri.
Manuel Locatelli – 6/10 – As usual, Locatelli was the deepest of Juventus midfielders on Wednesday evening. In the 59 minutes he was on the pitch, Locatelli had 68 touches. He was playing an internal part in keeping it all together as far as the Bianconeri midfield was concerned. However, having played regular minutes for Juventus and the Italian national team, he made way as a substitute early in the second half, getting subbed off for Arthur Melo.
