Juventus Player Ratings
Wojciech Szczesny- 6/10
The Juventus shotstopper was the busier of the two keepers. He made a fantastic save to deny Mkhitaryan early on in the game but failed to palm away Veretout's spot kick after going the right way and there was nothing he could do about Veretout's second.
Giorgio Chiellini- 6/10
Chiellini was reasonably solid as he dealt with any potential danger. But Roma exploited holes in Juventus' formation which had many players out of position when hit on a counter attack.
Leonardo Bonucci- 6/10
Although Bonucci was not at fault directly for any of the goals Juventus conceded, he was a troubled figure as Dzeko and Mkhitaryan made life tough for him.
Danilo started at the right side of the defence, but fled down the pitch quite a few times to ping in crosses in from the right wing. The Brazilian set up Ronaldo for his second with a perfect pin point cross. Although the Brazilian was caught out of positions quite a few times, he made up for it by providing an outlet moving forward. He was solid offensively as well defensively.
Juan Cuadrado- 6/10
Cuadrado had an average game but more was expected of him when moving forward as Juventus started the game without any natural winger. Cuadrado created two chances and drew most fouls but the Colombian needs to be more creative and provide a decent supply to the center forwards. Defensively he was pretty solid
Weston McKennie- 5/10
The US international had a night to forget. McKennie was bullied by Roma's midfielders throughout as he failed to set the tempo of the game.
Adrien Rabiot- 4/10
Adrien Rabiot enjoyed a bright start to the game as he fought off Roma's press to wiggle out of tight spaces. But his night turned sour when he was found guilty of sticking his hand out which led to a penalty for Roma. The Frenchman made matters worse when he made a late tackle on Mkhitaryan in the center of the park to receive his second yellow card of the night, leaving Juventus with just ten men on the field.
Dejan Kulsevski- 6/10
Starting on the right, Kulusevski had a few bright moments as he kept Roma's defenders busy throughout. The Swedish international linked well with Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot as he tried to create something for Morata and Ronaldo to pounce on.
Aaron Ramsey- 6/10
Aaron Ramsey showed glimpses of what Juventus missed last season. The Welshman was the only Juve player trying to pin down long passes forward and willing to take on risks in a bid to set up his teammates.
Cristiano Ronaldo- 8/10
Cristiano Ronaldo is the only reason Juventus come out of this game with a point in hand. The Portuguese won a penalty for his side late on in the first half as he slotted it past Mirante. Even after going down to ten men, Ronaldo scored a superb header to pull Juventus level.
Alvaro Morata- 4/10
The Spaniard had a rough outing on his return to Turin. Morata for all his good intentions was just made to chase shadows as he failed to connect with Ronaldo up-top.
Coming on for Mckennie, Arthur played his part perfectly as he prevented Roma from taking charge of midfield with his quick distribution and movement.
Douglas Costa- 5/10
The Brazilian failed to make the impact Pirlo would have been hoping for as he could not provide a spark going forward.
Rodrigo Bentancur- 6/10
Bentancur was brought on to provide fresh legs into the attack. Although the Uruguay international didn't do much wrong, he had very little time to make an impact for Juventus.
Gianluca Frabotta- N/A
A late substitution for Frabotta.
