PLAYER RATINGS: DYNAMO KIEV VS JUVENTUS.

SZCZESNY : 7- had to make a few late saves as the game was coming to an end. Has become a reliable number as the years go by.

Bonucci: 8- He was a leader at the back and put in a very strong display.


DANILO: 7.5- Another solid display. This time play on the left of the back three or was it left back, only pirlo knows. Danilo has become a very dependable player and seems to never put a foot wrong.


CHIELLINI. No Rating- Probably we are seeing a legendary defender dwindling before our eyes as injuries continue to hamper him. Did start the game well but lets hope it was just a precautionary.

DEMIRAL : 8- Came on for Giorgio and did not put a foot wrong. A beast of a defender and you can see that the future is so bright for him. Juve fans dream of a demiral de ligt combination.

CUADRADO: 8- had a really good game as well as he was a constant treat on the right hand side. Delivered the assist for Morata.

BENTANCUR: 5- Thought he was pretty sloppy with the ball, losing it on many occasions. Wasn’t moving the ball fast enough. Got a little better in the second half until being replaced by arthur.


RABIOT: 7- A decent display by the french international. He was the one looking to dictate the play from the center. Had a glorious opportunity in the first half to score but the opportunity went to waste. All in all a good performance though.


Chiesa: 7- He was a constant threat on the left hand side and was instrumental in the build up to Morata’s goal. Glimpses of why many regard him one of the best italian talents around.

Ramsey: 6- Didn’t impact the game enough. A few moments of brilliance especially with the back heel to lead to the Morata first goal. Started to get fatigue as the game went by. An average outing by aaron.

Kulusevski: 4- Almost scored with a delightful back heel effort at the near post but to be honest that was basically all he did. Did not impact the game at all and it could be said this was his worse outing. No worries the boy is still special.

Morata: 9- A top class peformance by the Spaniard. If he keeps delivering like this juve fans will forget about Suarez and Dzeko. His second goal was a really nice header which put the game out of reach. Superb outing!!

Dybala: 6- When he is on the pitch you can see that juve just functions better. Linked up the play immediately when coming on. There was a moment when bentancur back heeled the ball to him and we all thought dybala would curl it in with his left foot. Will start most definitely at the weekend.

Arthur: Standard 5- Just came on for the yellow carded bentancur and steadied the ship.

Bernardeschi: Standard 5- Not enough time to make an impact on the game.

Pirlo: 6- Still alot of work to do as juventus still did not press as much and the ball retention and movement was too slow on occasions. Got his subs right but still needs more work on the training ground with this side.
