    The Bianconeri dominate in all aspects of last night’s fixture against the Danes, with the figures showing that it wouldn’t have been misrepresentative of the run of play if the scoreline had also finished higher than 3-1

    The statistics from last night’s 3-1 Champions League victory over FC Copenhagen show a dominance from Juventus which confirms Antonio Conte’s post-match affirmation that it was a fully deserved result.

    The Bianconeri boss sent his men out to win at Juventus Stadium, and they delivered with aplomb. The three points gained from the comfortable victory, coupled with Galatasaray’s 4-1 defeat to Real Madrid, mean that the team’s fate is now in their own hands: just a draw in Istanbul will see them through to the European knockout stage.

    The aspect that most clearly reveals the difference between the two sides is the shot count. Juve had no less than 20 efforts, bombarding Johan Wiland’s goal just as they did in the away fixture with 13 on target this time around. The visitors were also precise in front of goal, but their three shots on target came from a total of just four attempts overall.

    It was the clinical finishing of a rampant Arturo Vidal which made the difference in the end. The midfielder went down in history last night not only as the third Juventus player to score a Champions League hat-trick (following in the footsteps of Filippo Inzaghi and Alessandro Del Piero), but also as the first Chilean to do so in the competition.

    The two penalties Vidal converted last night on the way to taking home the match ball brought his total up to four during the last two Champions League seasons, making him the most prolific player from the spot in the competition over that period.

    Andrea Pirlo, the player who was most searched for by his team-mates’ passes, was the foundation of the good performance in midfield, and credit should go to the creative contribution of Fernando Llorente, who set up his team-mates for more shots than other player on the field.
