Juventus snapped Lazio’s 19-game unbeaten run at the Stadio Olimpico as they beat the Biancocelesti 2-0 on Saturday evening.
Two penalties from Leonardo Bonucci were enough to see the Bianconeri home with Lazio failing to create anything of any substance. Juve’s impressive win sees them move level on points with Maurizio Sarri’s side in Serie A. Both teams have now accumulated 21 points from 13 games.
Here are the Juventus player ratings from Saturday’s win.
Goalkeeper & Defenders
Wojciech Szczesny (GK) – 6/10 – Surpisingly, Szczesny had very little to do as the visitors completely stifled the toothless hosts.
Danilo (RB) – N/A – Stretchered off in the opening exchanges following a strong but fair challenge from Elseid Hysaj. Looks like he’ll spend some time on the sidelines.
Leonardo Bonucci (CB) – 7.5/10 – With Paulo Dybala out, the responsibility fell on Bonucci’s shoulders from the penalty spot. He dispatched both kicks with aplomb to give Juventus a precious victory.
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) – 7.5/10 – So good. De Ligt was dominant in the air throughout and was never deterred by the threat of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Luca Pellegrini (LB) – 7/10 – Filling in for a fatigued Alex Sandro, Pellegrini impressed on just his second Serie A start of the season. With Chiesa operating down the left touchline, the left-back rarely ventured forward but he impressed with his defensive work. Little got past him.
