Way too Early Player Ratings: Milan vs Juventus.
We enter the game against Milan down 10 in the standings and down quality in terms of manpower. We’ll need some Juve grinta to get a result. Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments!
Szczesny 5.5 - we’ve been leaky at the back in recent games and I don’t expect Milan’s potent attack to be slowing down anytime soon.
Demiral 5.5 - rumours have started swirling that the big Turk is disgruntled. He’ll be rusty as he’s just coming back from the long lay-off
Bonucci 5.5 - at some point he’s just gotta not start, right? For now he keeps his place but we have to believe that if the lacklustre performances continue he needs to sit. I’m expecting another poor match
De Ligt 6.5 - the only bright spot in our back line against Milan. He will be tidy as always.
Chiesa 6 - a string of impressive performances has given Juventini hope. Against Milan I think he will struggle in the final third against Theo Hernandez
Bentancur 5.5 - Rodrigo will lose the grinta battle against Kessie. His sideways and backwards passing won’t help the attack
Rabiot 5.5 - I can’t see this midfield pairing beating out Milan.
Danilo 6 - isn’t on his favoured side but he will meet expectations on the defensive phase. Might struggle offensively but if he just gives the ball to Ronaldo, he’ll be fine
Ramsey 6 - Ramsey has been gradually improving match by match. Look for him to be pesky and provide some creativity as the advanced midfielder.
Dybala 5.5 - if the reports are true and he has the flu and isn’t feeling well again then I don’t expect much. A sick, not really in form Dybala is better than a youth squad player.
Ronaldo 6.5 - we always have a chance in any game with this guy playing. Against Milan will be no different. He’ll score, I’m expecting on a penalty.
Pirlo 5.5 - thin squad against his former club. Can’t expect much but at the same time we need points and I feel like he is too inexperienced for this game
