Derby della Mole: Juventus - Torino Player Ratings.
The Bianconeri appeared to be continuing the club’s freefall by trailing to one of the bottomfeeders of the league for a majority of the match and struggling to get any kind of rhythm going on the offensive side of the ball. The only way to describe this match is: a sigh of relief. A draw or a loss to one of the worst teams in the league and you are currently reading a scathing piece cleaving every aspect of every player currently wearing the black and white, questioning the future of beloved player turned coach Andrea Pirlo, and the inevitable conclusion of a historic run of Serie A titles going back to 2011. But it did not, and ending as such, one walks away with a feeling of just that... a sigh of relief.

Wojciech Szczesny - 6
The Polish goalkeeper started the match on a sour note as he and the Bianconeri defense allowed a Torino corner to be tapped in uncontested by N’Koulou at the 9’. A slight redemption shortly after, Tek had a huge save at the 14’ on a goal that seemed destined to that point to reach the back of the net and would have put the Bianconeri down 2-0 early in the first half. Szczesny followed it up with another solid stop of a shot on goal by Italian nation Andrea Belotti at the 29’. Szczesny accounted for one save, one punch, one save from inside of the box, three accurate long balls, two clearances, one aerial duel won, and one goal conceded.
