    Juventus.com makes sense of all the facts and figures from the Bianconeri’s sixth straight win in all competitions

    No other team in Serie A boasts a better form book over the last five matches than the Bianconeri, who have taken maximum points from their fixtures against Torino, Empoli, Milan, Palermo and now Lazio. Add to that list last month’s Champions League triumph over Manchester City and the men in black and white have won six on the spin in all competitions.

    Friday night’s victory extended Juventus’ unbeaten run in the league against the Biancocelesti to 22 games (16 wins and six draws). The Roman outfit have now lost six of their last seven Serie A encounters against the Old Lady at the Stadio Olimpico.

    Yesterday Massimiliano Allegri’s men scored their earliest goal of the season so far, when Santiago Gentiletti turned into his own net after just seven minutes. For the hosts, this was the sixth time that they had conceded inside the opening quarter of an hour this term – more than any other Serie A side.

    Meanwhile, this was only the second occasion this season in which the Bianconeri netted twice in the first half after the precedent was set in last month’s win over Empoli.

    In terms of the defence, the team is going from strength to strength, as the visitors recorded a third straight clean sheet in the league and four in all competitions. In addition, this was the seventh match in which Juventus stopped their opponents from fashioning any shots on target before half-time. Only Napoli (nine) boasts a better record.

    Less characteristic of Allegri’s charges, perhaps, was that they had significantly less possession than usual (36.9 per cent), while Lazio made a far greater number of passes (581 to 349) and crosses (24 to seven) than their visitors. But the hosts’ approach play was often predictable and the Bianconeri’s quick counter-attacking style paid dividends on the night.

    One man whose season is simply getting better and better is Paulo Dybala, who has now had a hand in 10 goals so far this term (seven strikes and three assists).

    La Joya’s all-round performance was thoroughly impressive, as he won back the ball for his side on 10 occasions (more than any of his team-mates), while having four shots and whipping in three crosses.

    Other team highs worthy of note were:

    -          The 21 passes completed by Claudio Marchisio in the opposition half.

    -          The four times that Alex Sandro was fouled, as the Biancocelesti struggled to live with the Brazilian wing wizard.

    -          The seven defensive clearances made by Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini respectively. The latter also intercepted five balls and blocked two Lazio shots on goal.

    -          The 22 challenges in which Mario Mandzukic was involved. The Croatian striker won an impressive 68.2 per cent of them.
