Juventus will feel aggrieved by a number of refereeing decisions as their ten men could only leave Crotone with a 1-1 draw from Saturday’s Serie A clash.

Simy Nwankwo had put the hosts in front from the spot, before summer signing Alvaro Morata levelled matters in the 21st minute. Federico Chiesa then saw red for a perceived stamp in the 60th minute, with Andrea Pirlo’s side having a winner chalked off for offside in the closing stages.

Here are your Juventus player ratings.

Gianluigi Buffon – 6/10 – Only had two shots to deal with all match but handled those efforts well. A bit questionable at crosses and could do nothing about the penalty.

Danilo (CB) – 7/10 – Found himself under the cosh for the final half an hour when his side were reduced to ten, but put in a solid display and supported his wing-back well throughout.

Leonardo Bonucci (CB) – 6/10 – Didn’t have a necessarily bad game but got himself booked early on when he conceded the foul for the penalty. A tackle he didn’t need to make.

Merih Demiral (CB) – 7/10 – Much like his fellow centre-backs, he dealt with the bombardment of Crotone crosses late on to hold out for a point. Made some incisive passes out from the back.

Federico Chiesa (RWB) – 5/10 – Wasted at wing-back but was lively on his debut for Juve. Just a shame he got sent off with a poor studs up tackle in the second half. Even if it looked unintentional.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) – 7/10 – One of the better players on the pitch with an all-action performance that demonstrates how much I Bianconeri have missed him. Was everywhere, and in a good sense.

Arthur (CM) – 8/10 – Well, it appears there is semblance of a partnership blooming here. Arthur’s 95.7% pass accuracy was the best among his side, and his ball carries through midfield were 100% successful. Good job Barcelona.

Gianluca Frabotta (LWB) – 6/10 – A decent enough display from the 21-year-old who has been promoted from the Under-23s. Clearly well liked by Pirlo.

Dejan Kulusevski (RF) – 6/10 – A mixed bag for the Swedish forward, who offered quality on the ball but lacked when out of possession. Didn’t make the right runs to cause Crotone damage.

Alvaro Morata (ST) – 8/10 – Grabbed his first Juventus goal since rejoining the side but could easily have had three on the night. Struck the woodwork then was denied a winner by a controversial VAR decision.

Manolo Portanova (LF) – 6/10 – Granted his first start since being promoted from the youth team, but was practically non-existent in the first half. More chances will come for the young debutant.

Adrien Rabiot – 6/10

Federico Bernardeschi – 5/10

Juan Cuadardo – 7/10
