Juan Cuadrado: 8.4

A solid performance from Juve's Colombian right-back.

Cuadrado always offered an outlet down the right-hand channel for the Bianconeri, and linked up well with Weston McKennie and Cristiano Ronaldo throughout the game.

Cuadrado's remarkable ability to jink past players in one-on-one situations, seemingly at will, was again on display against Sampdoria.

The 31-year-old has yet to produce disappointing performance for The Old Lady this season, and his energy levels are a big bonus for Andrea Pirlo's side.

Defensively, Cuadrado made two Interceptions and six recoveries, proving that he's equally adept defending as he is attacking.

He also assisted Ramsey's goal right at the death to put the seal on a deserved victory.

Federico Chiesa: 7.4

Chiesa is slowly cementing his place in the Juventus starting XI after a difficult start to his career in Turin.

However his goal, a lovely move at speed which involved Ronaldo and Morata, was expertly swept home by the winger.

Chiesa's pace was always a threat to the Sampdoria back line, and often times he was double marked by Claudio Ranieri's men.

STAR MAN

Rodrigo Bentancur: 7.7

Another consistently brilliant performance Bentancur in the middle of the park for the reigning champions.

Bentancur's relentless pressing and tenacity has marked him as undroppable for Pirlo since he took change. The Uruguayan is comfortably the best midfielder at the club, and is beginning to form a potent pairing with Brazilian Arthur in central midfield.

Bentancur completed 90% of his 94 passes, with 24 passes coming in the final third. He also made 11 recoveries, showing how integral he has become in winning back possession of the ball.

Keeping the 23-year-old fit will be pivotal as the season enters its business end.
