      The post-match figures from last night’s game in Verona indicate a dominant Bianconeri side were worthy winners on the opening day of the season

      A commanding display from start to finish enabled the Bianconeri to chalk up their first points of the Serie A campaign in yesterday’s 1-0 victory over Chievo.  

      The gulf in class between the reigning champions and a Gialloblu side featuring seven debutants was clear for all to see as the visitors set about their task with relish during Massimiliano Allegri’s first Serie A match in the Juventus dugout.

      A combination of misfortune and imprecision in the final third meant the Bianconeri were unable to add to Cristiano Biraghi’s own goal after seven minutes, but Allegri will no doubt be impressed with the way his men went about their business in Verona.

      The supremacy enjoyed by the Old Lady was reflected in the post-match statistics, which indicate their 53th opening day success was no less than they deserved.

      Here is a look at some of the most significant figures from yesterday’s game:

      21

      Goal attempts by Juventus over the course of the encounter, three of which hit the target.

      Three

      Times the Bianconeri hit the woodwork in their first Serie A match of the season, their highest figure registered for the last 10 league campaigns.

      690

      Passes made by Allegri’s men, over double the hosts’ number of 233.

      74.1%

      Possession enjoyed by the visitors, a statistic only bettered once in the last ten seasons, against Cesena in December 2011 (74.5%).

      97

      Passes made by Claudio Marchisio at the Bentegodi yesterday, more than any other player on the pitch.

      Six

      Chances created by Carlos Tevez, a real livewire alongside Kingsley Coman in attack.

      Four

      Attempts by Coman during his 68 minutes on the field, statistically the greatest goal threat last night.
