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.
