Turin, We Have A Problem: Benevento - Juventus Player Ratings:
The Ronaldo-less Bianconeri traveled to the Campania region to take on the Sorcerers from Benevento and looked worse for wear without their crown jewel in rotation. Flaws were on display as the nine time champions struggled against the newly promoted side and dropped more points on Saturday evening. One thing is clear in a season where no point is guaranteed: resting any player, especially Ronaldo, cannot be risked. The easy way out and my plan was to give every player a 2 rating and move on to Dynamo Kyiv next week, but I will give rating this mess a shot.
Notice: All ratings are calculated through a stringent process utilizing statistics and the eye test called My Opinion and are most certainly incorrect.
Wojciech Szczesny - 6
Szczesny was working miracles for the Turin side early in the first half, but continual defensive lapses and the inability of his black and white compatriots to get a clearance following multiple saves by the Polish goalkeeper allowed the equalizer to be scored by Gaetano Letizia.
Juan Cuadrado - 4.5
Statistically Cuadrado clocked out as the worst rated player of the match: losing possession sixteen times with two fouls. Cuadrado did contribute two tackles, one interception, and one clearance. Cuadrado was booked with a yellow card at the 80’.
Gianluca Frabotta - 5
Some solid play on the defensive end of the field is offset by a lack of awareness on the offensive side of the field. Frabotta utterly ignored and overstepped a well placed pass from Kulusevski to set up a potential game winning goal. Frabotta had one clearance, two interceptions, two tackles, three aerial duels won, two ground duels, won, and contributed three accurate long balls.
Matthijs De Ligt - 6
