Juan Cuadrado (RM) – 5.5/10 – The game seemed to revolve around Cuadrado at times, such was the frequency at which the ball arrived at the Colombian’s feet. Unfortunately, though, this wasn’t exactly a good thing. Cuadrado provided mere moments of quality and was far too loose in possession.
Manuel Locatelli (CM) – 6/10 – Locatelli’s derby was ruined by an early boot to the face from Lautaro Martinez. The midfielder was patched up like a veteran soldier but he could only last 34 minutes before he was replaced by the returning Denis Zakaria. Not quite sure whether there was another injury involved as he departed in tears.
Adrien Rabiot (CM) – 8.5/10 – On his 27th birthday, Rabiot arguably produced his finest performance in Bianconeri colours. The Frenchman was a menace out of possession, eating up ground at a canter in transition and ensuring Nicolo Barella, whom he dominated, never got away. With the ball, Rabiot was controlled and efficient, aptly filling in for Locatelli.
Alvaro Morata (LM) – 6/10 – I thought Morata was Juve’s brightest attacking spark amid their period of dominance in the first half. His movements were tough to track and he was excellent off one touch, initially combining well with Dusan Vlahovic. Barely featured after the restart, however.
