    Juventus.com rounds up the standout statistics from the Bianconeri’s 1-0 win away to Palermo on Saturday
    Sicilian success

    Saturday’s match against Palermo marked the Bianconeri’s 14th win at the Renzo Barbera, making them the visiting team to have triumphed most often at the stadium.

    This was also Juve’s ninth consecutive victory over the Rosanero without conceding a single goal. At the other end, meanwhile, the Old Lady have racked up 18 strikes against their Sicilian opponents since recording the first of the aforementioned wins in November 2011.

    Positive signs

    This time they may have scored through a rather fortuitous deflection off Edoardo Goldaniga, but the fact remains that Juventus have now netted in 18 successive matches in Serie A and have always taken the lead so far this season.

    Another positive to take away from tonight was that of keeping back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since April.

    Key performers

    Mario Mandzukic was a busy man at the Renzo Barbera, helping himself to five shots – one more than he managed over the course of his previous five outings this term.

    Miralem Pjanic too chipped in with two efforts, both of which on target, whilst creating a pair of scoring opportunities for his team-mates – a feat match by Brazilian right-back Dani Alves.

    Playing an integral role in the match-winning goal, Alves also contributed aplenty in other areas, getting on the ball 120 times and making 90 passes, 44 of which in the opposition half – all match-highs on the evening.
