Two goals in 10 first-half minutes enabled the Bianconeri to turn the tables on Fiorentina and exact revenge for March’s Coppa Italia semi-final first leg defeat at Juventus Stadium.
Fernando Llorente ended a six-match barren run in front of goal by cancelling out Gonzalo Rodriguez’s opener, while Carlos Tevez’s double made sure of the victory, taking him on to 20 Serie A strikes for the season.
While the Viola shaded matters in terms of shots (13 to 12) and matched their hosts in the possession stakes, it was Juventus’ efficiency in midfield and firepower up front that condemned Vincenzo Montella’s men to their fourth straight Serie A defeat, a streak they last registered in February 2005.
Here is a look at some of the main figures behind last night’s triumph:
Goals in his last two games against Fiorentina for Fernando Llorente, the man who weighed in with last night’s important equaliser.
