Wednesday night’s triumph at Juventus Stadium stretched the Old Lady’s unbeaten streak at home in the Champions League to ten games, of which seven have resulted in wins.
The 2-0 victory against the Rojiblancos owes much to the disparity in the number of shots managed by the two sides. The Bianconeri mustered a total of 20 efforts, six of which on target, in contrast to the visitors’ solitary strike in the first-half.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men edged their opponents in terms of possession, enjoying 54.4 per cent of the ball and 4.5 per cent more than Unai Emery’s men in the final third. They were also crisp and accurate in their distribution, completing 90.4 per cent of their passes.
