      Five key points from the Bianconeri's win against Empoli
      1. GREAT START CONTINUES

      Juventus equalled the best start in their history: 28 points in the first 10 Serie A matchdays, the same as in 2012/13.

      The Old Lady hasn't lost away from home in the league for 18 games (15 wins, two draws). It is the longest unbeaten away run in Serie A in the Massimiliano Allegri era (the longest previous is 25 games between September 2011 and November 2012 under Antonio Conte).

      2. DIFFICULT FIRST HALF

      For the first time this season Juventus ended the first half trailing, having only conceding four out of seven goals all season in the first period.

      3. GAME NUMBERS

      In the second half Juve continues to shoot a lot, eight shots to Empoli's five, whilst playing 270 passes, 90% of them reaching their intended targets, also winning more duels than in the first half.

      4. RONALDO!!

      Simply decisive. 

      After his second half brace, Cristiano Ronaldo has now actively participated in 10 Juventus goals this season (seven goals, three assists), of which the Bianconeri have 14 Serie A goals in total. In eight of the 10 Serie A matchdays played, Ronaldo has actively participated in at least one goal.

      5. ONCE MORE THE WOODWORK

      The crossbar hit by Miralem Pjanic early in the second half is the sixth woodwork hit by Juventus this Serie A campaign, in fact only last night's opposition, Empoli have been denied by the frame of the goal more (eight).
