Cagliari 1-3 Juventus: Juventus Player Ratings as Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick gets the job done | Serie A 2020-21




Juventus beat Cagliari 3-1 in 2020-21 Serie A after falling in the middle of the week from the UEFA Champions League against Porto.

Cristiano Ronaldo broke a hat-trick to seal all three points for the Bianconeri. The Portuguese opened the goal early by scoring with a header to give Juventus early leadership.

The 36-year-old then turned a penalty into a double advantage for Juventus at night. Cristiano Ronaldo completed his hat-trick with an absolute belt, knocking down one from his left foot to complete the route. Giovanni Simeone scored a consolation goal for his team in the second half.

In that sense, let’s look at the ratings of Juventus players in the game.

Wojciech Szczesny – 6.5 / 10

Wojciech Szczesny had a decent match even though Cagliari looked dangerous with his attacks. The Polish international made three saves in the game. However, he failed to keep the sheet clean.

Juan Cuadrado- 7/10

Juan Cuadrado had a pretty rich night for Juventus. He continued his electric form from the game against Porto. The Colombian scored Ronaldo’s first goal of the evening. Cuadrado was pretty well balanced, both offensively and defensively.

Matthijs de Ligt – 7/10

Matthijs de Ligt was firmly behind. The Dutch national team player made six throws, won four duels, cut the ball three times and made three recoveries.

Giorgio Chiellini – 6.5 / 10

Giorgio Chiellini, who returned from injury, had a decent outing with De Ligto. The duo managed to prevent most of the threats to Cagliari and did not allow anything to pass through them.

Alex Sandro – 6.5 / 10

Alex Sandro had a reasonable trip until he was forced to an injury just after half an hour.

Dejan Kuluševski – 6/10

Dejan Kulusevski endured a difficult night, because it was difficult for him to break the lines. He also gave property cheaply on several occasions.

Danilo – 7.5 / 10

Danilo started the game in the center of the field. Pirlo took a risk, but it paid off in the end. He won in seven matches, seven recoveries, two clashes and two interceptions for Juventus. The Brazilian made the most passes in the match (55).

Adrien Rabiot – 7/10

Adrien Rabiot politely changed the center of the park. The Frenchman won five duels, six recoveries and three matches in the game. Along with Danilo, Rabiot also had a Juventus midfield in complete control.

Federico Chiesa – 8/10

Federico Chiesa had a great match. The Italian international created the most chances (5) against Cagliari. Chiesa also set up Ronaldo for his third night.

Alvaro Morata – 6/10

Alvaro Morata had a night of oblivion against Cagliari. The Spaniard fell on all fronts. Morata failed to beat Cagliari’s defensive structure for most of the game and endured a difficult night.

Cristiano Ronaldo – 9.5 / 10

Cristiano Ronaldo was the ‘man of the match’. The Portuguese national team player scored a perfect hat-trick and gave an appropriate answer to his critics.

He opened the shot by looking with his head and finished it off with a penalty kick and a vicious kick with his left foot. Ronaldo scored the second fastest hat-trick of his career to sign a deal with the Old Lady.

Ratings of Juventus replacements

Federico Bernadeschi – 7/10

Federico Bernadeschi came in early to replace Sandra and played his role perfectly. During his stay on the field, he recovered seven times, won three duels, cut twice and completed two dribbles.

Leonardo Bonucci – 6.5 / 10

Leonardo Bonucci came in to replace Chiellini in the 70th minute. The veterans’ defender ensured that Juventus protected their lead until the very end.

Weston McKennie – 6/10

Weston McKennie performed admirably for the limited time spent on the field. He restored the balance in the Juventus midfield and provided much-needed energy.

Arthur – N / A

Arthur did not have much influence on the match against Cagliari.

Gianluca Frabbota – N / A

Gianluca Frabotta came in too late to deserve the grade.
