Manuel Locatelli (CM) – 5.5/10 – Like Bonucci, Locatelli didn’t cover himself in glory in the build-up to Venezia’s goal. The Italian wasn’t massively influential in the build-up as Venezia sought to neutralise him. He offered some verticality, but Locatelli’s performance was pretty meh, to put it bluntly.
Adrien Rabiot (CM) – 5/10 – Rabiot’s first-half was assured as he aided Juve’s build-up considerably with his technical security and willingness to drop into defence. However, the Frenchman seemingly disappeared from the 45th to 80th minute. In the closing stages, he offered the occasional penetrative run but his efforts garnered little.
Juan Cuadrado (RM) – 3.5/10 – Cuadrado was a liability in Venice. When he wasn’t rolling around feigning an ankle fracture, the Colombian was either losing possession or failing his pressing assignment. He also missed a huge chance just before half-time to give Juventus a 2-0 lead.
Paulo Dybala (AM) – N/A – The Argentine was forced off in the opening stages with a reported knee injury. Hopefully, his substitution was precautionary, but his injury woes are rearing their ugly head once more.
Federico Bernardeschi (LM) – 6.5/10 – Juventus were desperately in need of a match-winner after Venezia equalised, and Bernardeschi tried his utmost to fill Dybala’s boots. After a quiet start, the Italian found ways to receive possession between the lines more frequently and he forced a brilliant save out of Sergio Romero at 1-1. His withdrawal with 15 minutes remaining was a strange decision.
