Juventus (3-5-2):

W. Szczęsny (6): Had only one save to make in the match, but it was crucial, ensuring Juventus secured 3 vital points for Champions League qualification. Big teams need great goalkeepers like him.

F. Gatti (7): Refer to above.

G. Bremer (6): The Brazilian rock once again displayed his defensive prowess with some excellent interventions. He showcased his ability to build up play and also his offensive quality, being involved in the header that led to Gatti’s goal (21′), asserting himself as the leader of the defense.

Danilo (5.5): A solid first half from the Juventus captain with some good interceptions, but he faced challenges from the Tuscan substitutes and the resurgence of Nico Gonzalez in the second half. Despite the pressure, he and the defense held firm.

A. Cambiaso (5): A mediocre performance from the player who shone against Lazio earlier in the week. He wasn’t troubled much defensively by the Tuscan attackers and tried to create opportunities for his team without much success. He received a yellow card (69′). This led to his substitution by Alcaraz (75′).

W. McKennie (5.5): A good game from the American, particularly in the first half where he almost provided an assist for Vlahovic’s disallowed goal following a move by the former Schalke 04 player. Solid defensively and active in attack as usual. In the second half, with Alcaraz coming on, he had to adapt to a more challenging role.

M. Locatelli (5): A neutral performance from him, neither outstanding nor poor in his role as a number 6 tonight. Involved in ball recovery and distribution, but didn’t create much danger with his passes into the Fiorentina box.

A. Rabiot (5): A decent showing from the Frenchman, important in duels and ball recovery but lacking offensive contributions, except for a blocked cross that led to Gatti’s goal (61′). More is expected from him, given his decisive performances last season.

F. Kostic (5): The Serbian international had a solid game, active in duels and offensive play, supporting Juventus for a good hour. Good crosses and defensive interventions tonight, but still lacking that final touch. Substituted by Iling (60′).

F. Chiesa (5): A similar performance to Kostic for the Juventus star, trying to make an impact offensively but struggling with the final touch several times, including a shot saved by the Tuscan goalkeeper when Vlahovic was unmarked. However, he was involved in the cross that led to Gatti’s goal (21′). Replaced by the promising Yildiz (60′).

Dusan Vlahovic (5.5): It was a strange game for the Serbian striker as he had two goals disallowed. The first was ruled out for offside after a deflection from Bremer, and the second was also offside, with McKennie providing the assist. Vlahovic seemed frustrated, and it reflected in his performance. He made poor decisions in front of goal, eager to score against his former team Fiorentina. He was substituted for Kean in the 85th minute.

Fiorentina (4-2-3-1):

Pietro Terracciano (4.5): A relatively quiet match for the Fiorentina goalkeeper, as he didn’t have any saves to make. He was fortunate as Juventus hit the woodwork three times and had three goals disallowed. The defeat tonight was not his fault.

Martín Kayode (4.5): The young Italian forward was not very involved in the attack and struggled in the first half against the Juventus attackers. However, he improved in the second half, especially against Yildiz, who had a quiet game. Kayode was replaced by Dodo in the 83rd minute.

Nikola Milenkovic (3.5): A poor defensive display from the Serbian tonight, with many mistakes in passing, interceptions, and positioning. He struggled against the Turin attackers, leaving his teammate Ranieri exposed at times. Milenkovic almost scored an own goal with a poorly timed intervention on a cross from Kostic. A forgettable performance for him tonight.

Lorenzo Ranieri (5): Not a standout defensive performance, but he helped his team avoid conceding more goals. Despite not getting much help from his Serbian teammate, Ranieri made some crucial defensive interventions, especially in the second half, preventing Juventus from extending their lead.

Cristiano Biraghi (4): A tough match for him, as he was troubled by the Juventus players. The Italian left-back didn’t contribute much offensively tonight, but he showed some improvement in the second half when Juventus sat back to protect their lead.

Roland Mandragora (4): The former Juventus player struggled against the Juventus midfield in the first half. Dominated by Rabiot and McKennie, Mandragora had a tough time defensively and didn’t offer much going forward, despite scoring a beautiful goal earlier in the week against Atalanta. He was substituted for Lopez at halftime.

Nahuel Gonzalez (4): Invisible for most of the game, the Argentine midfielder had a poor performance until he unleashed a sublime shot that was denied by a fantastic save from Szczesny. That was the only positive moment for him tonight.

Giacomo Bonaventura (4.5): Largely ineffective in the first half, the former AC Milan player showed more energy and attacking intent in the second half. However, his resurgence wasn’t enough to help his team secure a point in Turin.

Antonin Barak (4): The former Hellas Verona player had a below-par performance tonight. Expected to be the playmaker for Fiorentina, Barak struggled to make an impact offensively and was mostly involved in defensive duties. He was replaced by Nzola in the 61st minute, and there was a noticeable improvement in Fiorentina’s play.

Christian Kouame (4): It was hard to notice his presence on the field tonight. Like Belotti, he suffered from a lack of opportunities in front of goal and seemed to be struggling to make an impact.

A. Belotti (4/10): Belotti had a quiet first half, largely due to a questionable tactical setup by the Italiano team. He struggled to get involved in the game and was eventually substituted at half-time for Sottil (45th minute).
