    A statistical summary of Juventus’ 3-1 home win over Fiorentina on Sunday evening

    The Bianconeri’s win over Fiorentina was their sixth on the spin in Serie A and one which saw them overtake Roma and move up to fourth place, six points behind league-leaders Inter.

    Massimiliano Allegri’s men had to fight back from a goal down on the night following Josip Ilicic’s third minute penalty and they have now accrued the joint-highest number of points (10) from losing positions. Incidentally, all of their comeback victories have finished 3-1 (as also recorded against Bologna and Empoli before last night).

    Yesterday saw the Old Lady triumph over Fiorentina for the 71st time in Serie A history and they have now beaten them on 18 occasions in the last 23 matches played in Turin. The visitors have failed to garner a single point from their five league encounters played at Juventus Stadium and the hosts extended their run of netting in 30 consecutive top-flight meetings with the Viola.

    The Bianconeri touched the ball 28 times in the opposition's penalty area, in contrast to the Viola's four.

    It’s a rare sight when the Bianconeri have less than half of the possession, especially at home, but that’s precisely what happened on Sunday, as Paulo Sousa’s charges enjoyed 61.7 per cent of the ball (the highest stake for a visiting team in Turin since 2011), completing 86.4 per cent of their 612 passes, compared to Juve’s 80.4 per cent of just 363 exchanges.

    In spite of this, Allegri’s men provided the greater attacking threat, as they mustered 11 shots from within the box and six on target compared to Fiorentina’s one (on both counts) – Ilicic’s penalty, which was the sixth spot-kick converted by the Slovenian so far this term.

    Attacks from left field: Patrice Evra provided the greatest number of goalscoring chances for Juventus (four), while the Viola too focused their own forward forays down the left flank.

    It was a night of new beginnings for Juan Cuadrado, whose sixth-minute equaliser was the first time that he had scored with his head out of a total 25 Serie A goals. It was also the Colombian’s maiden strike against his former club and the earliest that his new employers had found the target in 2015/16.

    Mario Mandzukic, meanwhile, remains a consistent component of his side’s resurgence and the Bianconeri have won on each of the seven occasions that the Croatian has hit the back of the net.

    Finally, for Paulo Dybala, the season just gets better, the Argentine registering his eighth league goal and ninth in all competitions since switching Sicily for Piedmont in the summer. The striker was in typically clinical mood yesterday, getting three of his four efforts on target, the last of which culminated in another memorable moment for himself, the team and all adorning the black and white in an electric finale at Juventus Stadium.
