    In 2013 Juve picked up 89 points in the league at an average of 2.41 points per game

    96 goals scored and 41 conceded. 34 wins, nine draws and the same number of defeats. These are Juventus' statistics for 2013. Incredible numbers, even more impressive if you only consider Serie A: of their 37 matches played between January and December, the Old Lady won 28, drew five and lost four, three of which came last season. 89 points in total, at an average of 2.41 points per game. 71 goals for and just 24 against - 10 fewer than Roma, second in that category.

    A solid defence is often key to success and the Bianconeri have afforded their opponents only 335 shots on goal, recording 20 clean sheets in the process: only Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid can match that record in their respective leagues.

    Obviously no one has done better in Italy and the same goes for attacking statistics: 508 shots, with 245 on target, and 11,534 passes in the opposition half of the field. The Bianconeri are also the most accurate, with 86.1% of passes finding their intended target.

    In the first part of this season, Juve have now recorded nine straight victories and on 5 January they can make history against Roma: only once, in 1932, have Juventus won 10 games in a row in a single Serie A season. Their 46 points from 17 matches so far has already allowed them to equal a record: one set by the Bianconeri themselves back in 2005/06.

    Conte's men are also the only team in Italy's top flight to have a 100% home record, with eight wins from eight. Only four other sides across Europe's major leagues can match that feat, namely Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

    And what about individual records? Gigi Buffon went a career best 745 minutes without conceding, Tevez has hit 10 in the league, becoming the first man to reach double figures in the league under Conte, while Arturo Vidal found the net on 18 occasions in 2013. In the league the Chilean had a hand in almost a third of the Bianconeri's goals this calendar year: 21 of 71, with 12 goals and nine assists. Andrea Barzagli has featured more than anyone else, clocking up 3,891 minutes, while Andrea Pirlo's four free-kicks – three already this term – make him the dead-ball king.


    Three, just like the points up for grabs against Roma. This is the magic number, the one Juve want to begin the new year with.
