Juventus had a rollercoaster season. They started strong, challenging for the title, but ultimately finished 3rd with 71 points (19 wins, 14 draws, 5 losses). While the title race fizzled out, let’s analyze individual performances:

Goalkeepers

Wojciech Szczesny (8.5): Juventus’ main keeper, Szczesny played 25 games and kept 15 clean sheets despite transfer rumors. He faced three penalties, saving one. His consistent performances earned him a nomination for best Serie A goalkeeper, justifying his 8.5 rating.

Mattia Perin (6.5): Perin served as a backup, playing only 3 league games (1 clean sheet, 1 goal conceded). He featured more in the cup (5 games, 3 clean sheets, 3 goals conceded). Above average, but limited playing time restricts him to a 6.5.

Defense

Alex Sandro (6): In his final season (327 games, most by a foreign player), the Brazilian played 16 league games (1 goal) and 2 cup games. A decent season with limited minutes, earning him a 6 and a respectable Juventus career.

Danilo (8): Juventus’ captain at 32, Danilo played 29 games, scoring 1 goal and providing an assist. He consistently impressed as a center-back, deserving an 8 rating.

Daniele Rugani (6.5): Underused this season, Rugani played 17 league games (2 goals) and 1 cup game. His experience proved valuable when utilized, but a lack of playing time limits him to a 6.5. Hopefully, his new extension grants him more opportunities.

Bremer (10): A standout defender, Bremer solidified himself as Juventus’ best. He consistently handled the toughest tasks, playing 36 league games and scoring 3 goals. Juventus looked shaky without him. His excellent performances throughout the season earn him a well-deserved 10.

Federico Gatti (7): Gatti started most games, featuring in 32 league games. He occasionally drifted forward, leading to defensive lapses. However, his ability to bridge defense and midfield is valuable. He needs balance, but his attacking efforts yielded 4 goals. Despite weaknesses, he had an above-average season, earning a 7.

Midfield

Filip Kostic (5.5): Kostic featured often but was inconsistent. The Serbian winger played 29 games but only managed 4 assists despite frequent crosses. He was sometimes dropped for Samuel Illing Jr. due to his underwhelming performance, resulting in a 5.5 rating.

Adrien Rabiot (6.5): One of the starting midfielders, Rabiot played 31 games, scoring 5 goals and assisting 3. These numbers are disappointing considering his attacking role. His risk-averse approach held him back, earning him a 6.5. He could learn from Mckennie’s more attacking and successful approach.

Manuel Locatelli (8): The primary defensive midfielder, Locatelli often dropped back as a center-back when needed. His importance is evident in his 36 league appearances. He scored 1 goal and assisted 4, outperforming Rabiot in terms of taking risks. Locatelli surprisingly missed out on the Euros but earned a strong 8 rating.

Weston Mckennie (8.5): Mckennie had a breakout season after initially being left out of the pre-season tour. He secured a starting role, playing both out wide and as an inside midfielder. The American featured in 34 games, providing 7 assists. His impressive season deserves an 8.5.

Timothy Weah (6): Weah had an average first season in Turin, struggling for playing time. He appeared in 30 league games but only started 12, managing just 1 assist. A 6 reflects his average performance.

Andrea Cambiaso (10): Another breakout player, Cambiaso earned a 10 for his increased playing time. He seamlessly swapped roles with Mckennie when needed. The 24-year-old played mainly on the right in his 34 league games. His contribution in transitioning the ball and creating chances is evident in his 2 goals and 3 assists. Clubs like Real Madrid have shown interest, and his Euros call-up reflects his stellar season.

Fabio Miretti (6): Miretti had an average season, showing inexperience at times, understandable for a 20-year-old. There have been transfer talks involving him in a swap deal. However, keeping him and loaning him out for more experience might be a better option. He played in 25 league games, scoring 1 goal and getting 1 assist. While he’s shown potential, improvement is needed. This season earns him a 6.

Samuel Illing Jr. (7): Illing Jr. had a somewhat above-average season for Juventus, coming into his own more in the second half. The English winger featured in 24 league games, scoring 1 goal and getting 2 assists. He found himself playing more than Kostic on the left, justifying his 7 rating despite having lower goal contributions.

Forwards

Arkadiusz Milik (5.5): Milik primarily served as Vlahović’s backup, playing 32 league games. He managed only 4 goals and 1 assist. His underwhelming performances warrant a 5.5 rating.

Moise Kean (5): Kean failed to score in his 19 league appearances. His lack of playing time suggests a likely departure. Scoring zero goals is unacceptable, hence a low 5 rating.

Federico Chiesa (7): Often played out of position as a striker, Chiesa still managed 9 goals and 2 assists. There are rumours of a potential sale, but keeping him and playing him in his preferred position next season could be beneficial. A solid 7 for a season with positional challenges.

Dusan Vlahovic (10): Dusan Vlahovic was arguably Juventus best player this season. In Seria A he bagged 16 goals and 4 assists. He did this in 33 games this season. He has dragged Juventus forward at times especially when he scored a winner vs Salernitana in the 91st minute on matchday 19.

Kenan Yildiz (8): Kenan Yildiz set the scene a light as he had a breakout season. Yildiz started playing more minutes and showed his class. An example of this is his solo goal away vs Frosinone.  He featured in 27 Seria A games and only scored twice. This was due to him mainly coming off the bench.
