      Juventus.com looks at all the facts and figures behind the Bianconeri’s win against Bologna on Sunday

      Goals by Alvaro Morata, Paulo Dybala and Sami Khedira helped Juventus to a 3-1 win over Bologna – their first home victory in the league since last May’s identical scoreline against Napoli.

      As in previous matches at Juventus Stadium this term, the Bianconeri enjoyed the majority of possession (66.6 per cent) and created far more chances than their opponents (19 to 2), but were decidedly more clinical in their finishing, getting eight shots on target and finding the net on three occasions for the first time since the aforementioned triumph over the Partenopei last season.

      A couple of unwanted statistics remained, however, as the hosts once again conceded at the opposition’s first shot on target, the fourth time they have done so this year. This was also the fifth match in seven Serie A games in which Massimiliano Allegri’s men fell behind. During the whole of last season they trailed on nine occasions.

      It’s been a productive few days for Morata, who notched his second goal in as many games and his first in the league since scoring against Inter in May. This was also the third match in which the Spaniard had scored and provided an assist in the same match for the Bianconeri, as he set up Khedira, who kept his composure to net on his debut in Italy’s top-flight.

      On a defensive level, Giorgio Chiellini won the highest proportion of his 50-50s (88.9 per cent), winning back possession on  nine occasions, more than any other team-mate, while Paul Pogba made the most amount of tackles for the hosts (four).

      In addition to claiming a crucial second league win of the season, the evening ended in particularly positive fashion with the 92nd minute introduction of Kwadwo Asamoah, the Ghanaian returning to competitive action after 337 days on the sidelines through injury.
