The Bianconeri made it 18 Serie A wins for the season after Massimiliano Allegri’s men defeated Sassuolo 1-0 during a very tight encounter at Juventus Stadium on Monday evening.
With 82 minutes on the clock, Paul Pogba hit a spectacular half volley, his seventh league strike of the term, to send the Old Lady 11 points clear of closest challengers Roma.
Only Carlos Tevez, who is currently the league’s joint-top scorer alongside Inter's Mauro Icardi with 15, has more goals than Pogba for the reigning champions this 2014/15 campaign.
The result also means that Juventus have become the first side to inflict back-to-back away defeats on the Neroverdi in this Serie A season. Furthermore, Eusebio Di Francesco’s charges have now gone 14 top flight matches without keeping a clean sheet.
Here is a closer look at the main numbers from yesterday’s important success:
Tackles won by both Patrice Evra and Arturo Vidal, with the duo putting in fine shifts throughout the contest.
Dribbles successfully completed by Monday’s matchwinner Pogba at Juventus Stadium.
Good long balls pumped forward by Leonardo Bonucci, who also made seven interceptions as the Juventus defence kept their 14th league clean sheet of the term.
Crosses teased by Alvaro Morata, with the Spaniard providing two lay-offs for his team-mates.
Recoveries performed by Giorgio Chiellini. It was a true captain’s contribution from the 30-year-old as he also completed 60 passes, won three tackles and enjoyed 94 touches of the ball.
