Antonio Conte’s men produced a statistically solid performance to claim a 1-0 victory over Palermo and put the league title race to bed, sealing the club’s second Scudetto trophy in as many years.
While the Bianconeri were unable to treat a packed house at Juventus Stadium to a vintage display, Arturo Vidal’s converted spot-kick on the hour mark sparked raucous celebrations, clinching the team’s 26th set of three points from the current league campaign.
The statistics from yesterday’s clash once again indicate a dominant display from the home side as they overwhelmed the opposition with superior possession (62%) and incisive midfield passing.
As a team, Juve registered a grand total of 731 passes at 75% accuracy and also established a great territorial advantage by pressing forward at every opportunity.
Giorgio Chiellini was man-of-the-match yesterday from a statistical point of view as he dominated in a number of key departments, recovering the ball on 28 occasions and making 79 successful passes, five more than Andrea Pirlo.
However, the most threatening man on the pitch was Vidal, who not only scored the winner from the penalty spot, but also registered four separate attempts on goal. The next most threatening presence for the Bianconeri in attack was Mirko Vucinic, who looked to test Stefan Sorrentino on three occasions.
