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.
