    The facts and stats behind the Bianconeri's 3-0 win over Chievo Verona

    Three games played, three victories earnt. 

    Massimiliano Allegri's men recorded a 3-0 win over Chievo yesterday, with an own goal by Perparim Hetemaj in the 17th minute to start things off, followed by strikes from Gonzalo Higuain in the 58th minute and Paulo Dybala in 83rd.

    THE NUMBERS

    10 goals have been scored by Juventus in the first three Serie A matches, this feat has not been achieved by the Old Lady since 1981. 

    Taking into account last season, the Bianconeri have scored at least two goals in their last five league games, this last happened in May 2016.

    Juve dominated possession against the Flying Donkeys at 58.5%, they also completed 87.9% of their passes (554 in total, compared to Chievo's 380).

    53 balls were recovered by Juve, 11 passes intercepted, and they had 68 touches in the opponent's area. Going forward, there were 73 balls played upfield, 157 passes played into the attackers, 10 successful dribbles, 20 chances created, and finally 10 shots on goal.

    THE NAMES

    If we look at the individual names from yesterday's victory then Paulo Dybala clearly stands out. La Joya equalled his highest consecutive goals-to-games ratio of five in Serie A, since December 2014.

    In 36 minutes on the field, Dybala scored a goal and had two shots off target. He made 25 successful passes and completed five out of six attempted dribbles.

    Turning the attention to his strike partner, Gonzalo Higuain scored his 26th Serie A goal in Bianconero when he netted against Chievo.

    Miralem Pjanic created four chances (more than any other team mate), recovered 11 balls, and created the assist for Higuain's goal, which was his 12th assist in Serie A for the Bianconeri.
