Player of the Match – Paulo Dybala
Although Weston McKennie was the man who got Juventus’ goal, Dybala was the only player who troubled Igor Tudor’s side from the off. He came close with an audacious lob from close to the halfway line that had Lorenzo Montipo momentarily scrambling, before later hitting the crossbar and then forcing Montipo into a fine save.
