Paulo Dybala (RW) – 8/10 – It’ll be seriously cruel from the Juventus hierarchy to deny us Dybala x Vlahovic beyond the summer. We got the first taste of this potentially destructive partnership as the Argentine teed up the Serb with a gorgeous pass in behind for his debut goal. That was the highlight moment in a La Joya showcase on Sunday night. He was a joy to watch.
Dusan Vlahovic (ST) – 7.5/10 – The delightful debut goal will dominate all the headlines, but I was most impressed at how quickly Vlahovic formed connections with his fellow forwards. There was seemingly an inherent understanding between the front three and it was the Serb who functioned as the indefatigable focal point. He won duels, lost a few more, but his presence undoubtedly buoyed the Bianconeri. Allegri’s going to love him.
Alvaro Morata (LW) – 9/10 – Yep, Allegri’s got his next Mario Mandzukic. This was Morata’s best performance of the season by a country mile. He was absolutely superb. While he didn’t get a sniff in front of goal, the Spaniard emerged as a creative force off the left flank. He teed up Zakaria for his debut goal and Vlahovic spurned a great chance from a Morata cross in the opening period. Everything came off for the second coming of Mandzukic in this one.
Daniele Rugani – 5.5/10
Juan Cuadrado – 5/10
Weston McKennie – 5/10
Moise Kean – 6/10
