      Juventus.com analyses the key figures and statistics from Sunday’s encounter at the Stadio Olimpico

      Juventus will be looking to take the positives from their display in the latter stages of Sunday evening's 2-1 defeat to Roma when they regroup next week in Vinovo.

      After a first-half which saw the hosts hold the majority of possession (68 per cent), predominately in front of Juve’s back five, Massimiliano Allegri’s men approached the second period more positively.

      It took Miralem Pjanic’s 61st minute free-kick and Patrice Evra’s red card to bring Juventus to life and overall their performance in the second half was an improvement on the first.

      Where in the first 45 the Bianconeri saw just 38 per cent of the ball, by full time that figure rose to 43 per cent as they laid seige to the Roma goal throughout the game's conclusion.

      Defensively, Allegri’s charges were solid in spite of Pjanic and Edin Dzeko’s strikes, making more successful tackles (64 per cent) than their opponents as well as performing just as many recoveries (41).

      In a shot-shy first-half, with just one effort on goal, Juventus tested Wojcieh Szczesny far more often after the break (nine), one of which was Paulo Dybala’s goal on his full debut, another, Leonardo Bonucci’s header that was magnificently saved by the Polish goalkeeper in stoppage time.
