      The main facts and figures from last night’s Champions League meeting with Atletico, which saw the Bianconeri progress to the competition’s knockout stages

      A commanding performance against the reigning champions of Spain enabled the Bianconeri to wrap up a place in the Champions League last 16 with yesterday evening’s goalless draw at Juventus Stadium.

      A heavily defensive approach adopted by Diego Simeone’s men made it difficult for the hosts to convert their territorial dominance into clear-cut attempts.

      But the match stats show it was not for a lack of effort, with Juventus registering some of the best figures seen in this year’s competition.

      Here’s a look at some of the main numbers:

      Three

      Clean sheets from the Bianconeri’s last four European games at Juventus Stadium.

      10

      European home matches without defeat on home soil.

      71.8%

      Possession recorded by Juventus, the third best figure in a Champions League game this term after Bayern (vs CSKA) and Barcelona (vs APOEL Nicosia).

      92.1%

      Passing accuracy by the Bianconeri. Only Paris Saint-Germain have recorded a higher percentage this season.

      123

      Passes made by Giorgio Chiellini, a figure only surpassed by Bayern’s Xabi Alonso in this year’s Champions League.

      699

      Total passes – the Bianconeri’s best return in this season’s competition.
