Federico Chiesa was the star of the show on Wednesday night at the San Siro, as his two goals were enough for Juventus to clinch a crucial victory over AC Milan.
The former Fiorentina player opened the scoring within the first 20 minutes, thanks in large part to a delicious heeled assist from Paulo Dybala, before pocketing a winning goal at the hour mark after Davide Calabria tied. . Substitute Weston McKennie then added a third in the 75th minute.
The result sees La Vecchia Signora put an end to Milan’s undefeated start to the season and place Juve within seven points of the Serie A leaders.
Wojciech Szczesny (GK) – 8/10 – Another fantastic performance from the great Woj. One of the best in the world.
Danilo (RB) – 7/10 – Again performance of the Brazilian. It’s easy to see why Andrea Pirlo likes him so much.
Leonardo Bonucci (CB) – 6/10 – He really struggled to retain possession when faced with high pressure from AC Milan in the first half, but at least he was excellent off the ball.
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) – 7/10 – Solid as a rock. As usual.
Gianluca Frabotta (LB) – 7/10 – He gave another good account of himself. One to watch as Alex Sandro’s powers continue to wane.
Federico Chiesa (RM) – 9/10 – He scored a delicious first goal in the first 20 minutes and then scored a second at the hour mark. What signing has been in Juventus.
Adrien Rabiot (CM) – 10/3 – Useless.
Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) – 10/3 – Away from the rhythm, as it has been all season.
Aaron Ramsey (LM) – 5/10 – Surprisingly awkward in possession in the first half, and he should have scored in the second half.
Cristiano Ronaldo (ST) – 5/10 – Anonymous until the 70th minute when he made a wonderful pass to prepare McKennie for a shot on goal.
Paulo Dybala (ST) – 8/10 – Say what you want about Dybala, but when things go down, he triumphs. He did it one more time Wednesday night with a heel assist for the opener.
Weston McKennie – August 10 – Scored AGAIN. You need to start every game.
Dejan Kulusevski – 7/10 – Wonderful assist for Juventus third.
Arthur – N / A.
Federico Bernardeschi – N / A.
Merih Demiral – N / A.
Gianluigi Donnarumma (POR) – 7/10 – There was nothing he could do against Chiesa’s goal, but he made a brilliant save to deny McKennie.
Diogo Dalot (RB) – 4/10 – Caught out of position too many times.
Simon Kjaer (CB) – 6/10 – He did nothing wrong during the match and defended Ronaldo well.
Alessio Romagnoli (CB) – 3/10 – He didn’t do enough to help Theo contain Chiesa, then he was ripped apart by Kulusevski for the third time.
Theo Hernández (LB) – 5/10 – A constant threat from the flank, but he really struggled to contain Chiesa.
Samuel Castillejo (RM) – 10/3 – The weak link in Milan’s attack.
Hakan Calhanoglu (CM) – 6/10 – The Turkish international has become one of the most outstanding midfielders in Serie A this season. She continued her good form in the first half on Wednesday night, but much calmer in the second.
Davide Calabria (CM) – 7/10 – He scored a wonderful draw near the end of the first half. He didn’t look out of place in midfield, to say the least.
Franck Kessie (CM) – 6/10 – He did all the dirty work in midfield.
Jens Petter Hauge (LM) – 5/10 – It says a lot about Hauge that he can play in a game of this size and not look out of place.
Rafael Leao (ST) – 5/10 – He set the pace for the Milan press that caused problems in Juve’s midfield and defense, but didn’t do much when he really had the ball.
Brahim Diaz – 4/10.
Andrea Conti – N / A.
Pierre Kalulu – N / A.
Daniel Maldini – 6/10 – yes, Paolo Maldini’s son is legitimate.
Lorenzo Colombo – N / A.
