Juan Cuadrado (RM) – 7.5/10 – Cuadrado filled in ably at right-back after Danilo’s exit despite playing the majority of the game on a yellow card. The Colombian was as cool as you like defensively and offered the odd moment of offensive thrust. With Danilo set to enjoy a lengthy spell out, Cuadrado could enjoy a prolonged run in the defensive line.
Manuel Locatelli (CM) – 7.5/10 – This was Locatelli’s most complete display in a while. Aided by the presence of Adrien Rabiot in the first phase, the Italian was able to dictate proceedings against a pretty poor Lazio press. He looked at ease in possession, distributing to all corners of the Olimpico. Without the ball, Locatelli was prepared to put his body on the line.
Weston McKennie (CM) – 6.5/10 – It wasn’t quite a continuation of McKennie’s purple patch, but the American nonetheless contributed to a fine Juventus performance. He was efficient with the ball and astute without it.
Adrien Rabiot (CM) – 8/10 – Rabiot’s departure from the hybrid role saw him produce his best performance of the campaign thus far. The Frenchman marked Milinkovic-Savic out of the contest and offered plenty in the defensive phase. His positioning and recovery running were both exemplary, while he was tidy with the ball, adding some much-needed technical security to Juve’s build-up.
Federico Chiesa (LM) – 7.5/10 – We were treated to mere glimpses of Chiesa tonight, but the Italian nonetheless produced some electric moments in transition and it was his persistence that won Juventus a second penalty on the night. He was a menace on the counter-attack throughout in what was his most productive display in weeks.
