Iaquinta - Roma-Juventus Serie A (Grazia Neri)
Photo Gallery


Doni: 4.0- Was beaten handily four times and was hung out to dry by his back four.

Riise: 5.0- The former Liverpool man made a wonderful save on Del Piero with Doni beaten but will not pleased that the back line conceded four goals

Loria: 6.0- The much-maligned centre-back scored his first goal for the Giallorossi but it came in a losing cause.

Mexes: 4.0- Looked like a pylon when Iaquinta stepped around him and opened the scoring. His evening did not get any better when Iaquinta out-jumped him for his second goal of the match.

Panucci: 4.0- The veteran right-back was run ragged by Giovinco and Co. and it may be time for him to hang up his boots

Filipe: 6.0- The youngster made his first start of the season and was one of the only bright spots in an otherwise ugly evening for the Giallorossi.

Brighi: 5.0- Worked his socks off tonight in the first half but could not handle the presence of Poulsen in the midfield.

Tonetto: 5.0- His little flick set up Loria’s goal but failed to do much after that.

Baptista: 5.0- The ‘Beast’ was rather tame this evening and will not have pleased his manager with his performance.

Menez: 6.0- The flashy French winger went to ground much too easily at times but won the corner and then provided the delivery that set up Loria’s goal.

Vucinic: 5.0-
He was starved of service upfront and was jeered off the pitch when he was substituted late in the game.

SUBS: Montella (63”) 5.5, D’Alessandro (82’) NA Stojan (91’) NA


Buffon: 6.0- Did not have much to do between the posts tonight but made a good stop on D’Alessandro in the closing minutes.

Molinaro: 7.0- The hardworking defender did not put a wrong foot forward all evening long and linked up well with Giovinco.

Chiellini: 8.0- He was sporting a mask after breaking his nose but it did not inhibit his performance which was top class as usual. Made a wonderful sliding block on Brighi in the 16th minute.

Mellberg: 7.5- The Big Swede scored a rare goal when he sent a bullet header past Doni to put the match to bed.

Grygera: 7.0- His cross set up Iaquinta for his second goal of the match.

Salihamidzic: 7.0- He is rounding into form after coming back from a long injury layoff and Juve’s midfield has been better for it.

Tiago: 7.0-
The Portuguese playmaker put a solid performance together as he pulled the strings in the midfield tonight.

Poulsen: 7.0- The tough as nails holding midfielder created space for Tiago and Giovinco to work with.

Giovinco: 7.5- The ‘Atomic Ant’ set up Iaquinta’s goal with a beautiful pass and was a danger every time he touched the ball.

Iaquinta: 8.0- Took his goals extremely well as he danced around Mexes and fired a shot past Doni for his first and then out-muscled the Frenchman to head past Doni for his second.

Del Piero: 7.0- The captain was unlucky not to have added his name to the score-sheet as Riise cleared what was a certain goal off the line.

SUBS: Nedved (70”) 7.5, Marchionni (73”) 6.5
