At the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Juventus hosted Bologna hoping to secure three points that will cement their top-four chances. Still, it was anything but easy for them Bianconeri who fought against their Emilian enemies. Marko Arnautovic shocked the crowd by giving the visitors the lead early in the second half. Luckily for Massimiliano Allegri’s men, Dusan Vlahovic’s equalizer salvaged a point while their opponents were down to nine. So here are our player ratings for the match between Juventus and Bologna.
Wojciech Szczesny – 5.5
The Pole had little to do other than get the ball out of his net after the first set. Tried to save the day as he charged forward to meet Arnautovic but the Austrian easily rounded him.
Mattia De Sciglio – 5.5
The former Milano delivered a couple of decent crosses but was far from solid at the back and Dijks occasionally slipped past him.
Matthijs de Ligt – 6
The Dutch put in a commanding performance in the first half, but things went wrong after the break. Soriano lured him out of the box before providing the assist for Arnautovic. He then left the square with a knock.
Giorgio Chiellini – 6
The captain was mostly solid at the back, although he couldn’t stop Arnautovic in front of goal. On the other hand, he was particularly wasteful with the ball when trying to support his teammates up front.
Luca Pellegrini – 5.5
The young left-back put in an energetic display before fading in the second half. He left his seat for Zakaria when Allegri decided to overhaul the line-up on the hour.
Juan Cuadrado – 6th
A mixed bag for the Colombian who has recently extended his contract with Juventus. Looks lively at times but struggled in his personal duel against Dijks. With the open net in his grip, his shot hit the woodwork.
Daniel – 6
A solid if unspectacular display from the ex-Real Madrid player who was acting as a defensive midfielder. Made some crucial interventions and helped that Bianconeri when winning the ball multiple times. But couldn’t really help build the play.
Adrian Rabiot – 6th
The Frenchman started off with the right tone, reclaiming the ball with some brave tackles and running forward. But once again he was let down by his last ball and missed a sitter in front of goal.
Paulo Dybala – 5th
A memorable performance from the Argentine in one of his last appearances for Juventus at the Allianz Stadium. His shots went wide of the target and twice lost the ball in dangerous areas. Allegri decided to strip him off after 60 minutes despite falling behind in the result.
Dusan Vlahovic – 6
It was arguably one of the Serb’s worst performances since joining Juventus but he again spared his side the blush by nodding the ball into the net in added time.
Alvaro Morata – 6.5
Despite Vlahovic scoring the goal, it was the Spaniard who really saved Juventus on Saturday night. His run resulted in Soumaoro’s dismissal (which also resulted in Medel’s red card) and it was his acrobatic performance that set up the equaliser.
Leonardo Bonucci – 5.5
The Euro 2020 winner replaced the injured de Ligt. He attempted to launch long balls from behind, but his efforts were unsuccessful.
Denis Zakaria – 6
The Swiss added some energy in the middle of the park but was wasteful in the Bologna penalty area.
Federico Bernardeschi – 6
The Italian looked dynamic in the final minutes and delivered dangerous crosses from the left.
Alex Sandro – N/A
Moise Kean – N/A

Lukasz Skorupski – 6.5
The other Polish goalkeeper was again reliable between the posts and made regular saves throughout the game. Didn’t have a chance to equalize.
Adama Soumaoro – 5.5
The former Lille defender enjoyed a decent game but his late challenge against Morata soured his evening as he received his marching orders as last defender.
Gary Medel – 4.5
Seconds after Soumaoro’s dismissal, the Chilean veteran completely lost his temper, forcing the referee to give him a caution before sending him to join his team-mate on the touchline. It was a shame to see his promising night end with such an ugly scene.
Arthur Theater – 6.5
An impressive performance from the young Belgian who once again proved why he is one of the biggest revelations of the Serie A campaign. Remained calm against Vlahovic and Co. and made some adventurous runs up front.
Aaron Hickey – 6.5
The young Scot could not pose the usual threat in the attacking phase while playing on his less popular right flank. However, he made some crucial interceptions to deny Morata in the penalty area on a couple of occasions.
The former Sampdoria player led the show in the middle of the park for the visitors and provided Arnautovic with a brilliant opener assist after finding a gap in goal Bianconeri lines.
Jerdy Schouten – 6.5
The Dutchman sat in front of the defense and kept the ball ticking for them Rossoblu. He also managed to limit the danger of the Dybala.
Mattias Svanberg – 6.5
The Sweden international was all over the pitch, recapturing the ball for Bologna on several occasions.
Mitchell Dijks – 7th
A dominant performance from the full-back who made the left flank his own by winning his personal duel against Cuadrado. He threatened his runs while also helping his teammates in the back.
Riccardo Orsolini – 6th
The talented Italian tried to create danger with his shot, but his efforts missed the target. Despite this, he worked hard for the team’s cause.
Marko Arnautovic – 7th
The former Inter flop needed just one mistake from the Juventus defenders to punish them with his clever move. Rounded the keeper comfortably before putting the ball into the open net. Unfortunately, the Austrian had to leave the field after a shot.
Musa Barrow – 5.5
The Gambian striker came into play at a point when Bologna were no longer interested in attacking. As a result, he was hardly noticed on the pitch.
