De Ligt in the lead, Vlahovic in the flop – Italian media give their opinion on the derby

As usual, Friday’s Derby della Mole was far from a technical masterclass. Derby shoes in general tend to be thrilling for their toughness and the physical fights witnessed on the court.

So, yesterday’s game was no different, but Juventus fans were hoping to seal the three points.

Matthijs de Ligt gave the Old Lady the lead but Andrea Belotti secured a well-deserved point for the Granata with a second-half equaliser.

While the Dutchman was undoubtedly the best player on the pitch among Max Allegri’s men, several of his teammates were far from impressive.

The attacking trio didn’t have their best outing and Italian media gave Dusan Vlahovic low ratings (usually around 5).

Moreover, the papers were also tough on Alex Sandro who featured as a centre-back due to the urgency at the back. The Brazilian failed to block the cross which allowed Torino to snatch the equaliser.

Here are all the player ratings from major Italian news outlets as published by ilBianconero.
