The Bianconeri stretched their unbeaten home run in European competitions to 13 games after overcoming Real Madrid 2-1 during yesterday’s Champions League semi-final first leg at Juventus Stadium.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men went ahead early on when former Los Blancos star Alvaro Morata bagged his third goal in five appearances in Europe this term, tapping in from close range.
The visitors soon hit back through Cristiano Ronaldo before Carlos Tevez’s second-half penalty ensured Juventus would take a slender advantage to Madrid next week.
L’Apache’s strike means he’s now equalled his personal record of 29 in all competitions set with Manchester City and has also become the first Bianconero since David Trezeguet in the 2005/06 season to hit a similar total.
More of the numbers behind yesterday’s triumph can be found below:
