Szczesny 6.5; 6, Bonucci 6.5, Chiellini 6, 6.5; Cuadrado 6 (72’ Chiesa 6), Bentancur 6.5, Locatelli 6, Rabiot 6.5; Dybala 7.5 (79’ Kulusevski 5.5), Morata 7 (66’ Kean 6)

PLAYER OF THE MATCH – PAULO DYBALA

The Argentinean schemer set the standard for a first-half performance full of intensity and determination, and played the pass that sent Morata sprinting through to give the the lead. However, despite Dybala’s creative efforts and nearly making it 2-0, but for a fine save by Maignan, three points were not forthcoming.
