Cagliari vs Juventus: Player Ratings (Serie A – Matchday 33)

Man of the Match – Y. Mina (7): A towering defensive display from Mina, who marshaled the Cagliari backline with authority. His positional awareness and timely interventions neutralized the Juventus attack. He also converted a crucial penalty to put Cagliari ahead.

Cagliari (3-4-2-1)

S. Scuffet (5): A relatively quiet afternoon for the Sardinian goalkeeper, who faced limited threats. He couldn’t be faulted for the free-kick goal conceded.

Y. Mina (7): See above.

A. Dossena (4): A solid performance until a costly error in the 87th minute gifted Juventus an equalizer. A shame for a defender who had been instrumental in keeping the Bianconeri attack at bay.

P. Hatzidiakos (5.5): A strong defensive effort from Hatzidiakos, who was not at fault for either of Cagliari’s conceded goals. His physicality and distribution helped his team weather the storm, particularly in the closing stages. He was replaced by Wieteska in the 87th minute.

N. Nandez (6): A commanding performance from the Uruguayan captain on the right flank. He effortlessly neutralized Cambiaso and Chiesa, providing significant attacking support to his team when needed. An encouraging display. He was replaced by Zappa in the 79th minute.

A. Makoumbou (5): An average performance from the Congolese midfielder. Despite his below-par showing, he managed to control the Juventus midfield without much difficulty.

I. Sulemana (5): An unremarkable performance from Sulemana, who offered little beyond his presence in the midfield during Cagliari’s strong first-half spell. He was replaced by Prati in the 45th minute.

T. Augello (5): A shaky performance from Augello, particularly in the second half. His lapses in concentration put his team under pressure on several occasions. The introduction of Yildiz proved to be his undoing.

Z. Luvumbo (5.5): Luvumbo was wasteful in front of goal, squandering numerous opportunities to put his team out of reach. He won the penalty that led to Cagliari’s second goal, but the missed chances left a sour taste.

G. Gaetano (6): A lively attacking display from the Italian, who opened the scoring from the penalty spot following Bremer’s handball. He posed a threat to the defenders with his direct approach and provided valuable attacking impetus. An encouraging performance heading into the end of the season, where he will play a crucial role for his team. He was replaced by Deiola in the 79th minute.

E. Shomurodov (5): An average performance from the Uzbekistani forward, who had limited opportunities to shine but provided valuable defensive support to his team. His tireless work ethic helped his team through difficult periods. He was replaced by Viola in the 79th minute.

Juventus (3-5-2)

W. Szczęsny (3): The Polish goalkeeper conceded two penalties in the match, at fault for the second with a late foul on Luvumbo. He wasn’t at his best overall.

F. Gatti (3): Gatti tried to contribute offensively but without success. He was at fault for the second penalty, allowing Luvumbo to go one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Juventus’ defense was a shambles tonight, despite Cagliari’s limited incursions.

G. Bremer (3): The Brazilian defender was at fault for Cagliari’s first penalty and was not solid overall. However, he was good with his distribution but put his team in trouble several times with small fouls that could have been avoided. Frustration fouls, but how can we not understand them given his team’s performance?

Danilo (3): Once again, the captain was not up to the task, as he has been for several weeks. Dominated by his opposite number in the duels, he penalized his team on numerous occasions. He needs to get back on track quickly and put his team back on the right path.

T. Weah (3): Surprisingly in the starting lineup, he surely didn’t convince Juventus fans tonight. He was far too fragile defensively and tried to contribute offensively but without much success. He was replaced by McKennie (68′).

C. Alcaraz (3): A difficult adaptation for Juventus’ winter signing, the Argentinean, weakened early in the match after a clash with Mina, did not play a good match, like all his teammates. He was replaced by Yildiz (45′).

M. Locatelli (2): A lack of personality that’s painful to see. The Locatelli of Sassuolo surely no longer exists, or at least not for the past few months. His performance was woeful, a lack of offensive creativity and submission to the Cagliari midfield, it’s sad. He was replaced by Milik (74′).

A. Rabiot (1): A catastrophic performance from the Frenchman from start to finish. So little involved in the game, we even wondered if he was on the pitch tonight, in the end we saw him well with his ball losses. Before asking for €7M per season, maybe he should prove himself on the pitch.

A. Cambiaso (3): Present for the first 15 minutes, the Italian left-back was ghostly for the rest of the match. He was unable to bring what he does best on his side, his offensive contribution was less in this match. He was replaced by Iling (85′).

F. Chiesa (3): He won the free kick that led to Vlahovic’s goal, but his performance was very disappointing. He sinned many times in the final third, sometimes sending crosses to the far post. A disappointing performance.

D. Vlahovic (4): Generous in his offensive efforts, he was rewarded with a sublime free kick. He didn’t have any big chances apart from that, a lack of offensive creativity from Juventus tonight, as too often.
