      The Bianconeri return to Serie A this weekend after their Champions League triumph, as they travel to face Empoli

      Juventus are unbeaten in their last 14 games against Empoli Serie A, winning 12 and drawing twice. The Bianconeri have won their last six against the Tuscans, conceding only one goal in the process.

      In Empoli, the Bianconeri have won seven times, drew twice and lost just twice. In particular Juventus have won all their last three trips to Empoli in Serie A, scoring a total of eight goals with one conceded.

      HOW THE TEAMS ARE HEADING INTO THE FIXTURE

      Juventus haven't lost away in the league for 17 games (14 wins, three draws). It is the longest unbeaten run away from home in Serie A under the Massimiliano Allegri era (the longest previous is 25 games between September 2011 and November 2012).

      The Bianconeri have taken 25 points in nine games so far this season, and have only done better once, in 2005/06 by winning 27 points at this stage. Juve are also the team with the longest unbeaten streak, 13 games (11 wins and two draws).

      Empoli have only collected two points in six games after the September international break, and in this period only Frosinone and Chievo have fared worse, picking up one point each. The Azzurri have scored only one goal in the last three home games in the league, gaining only one point in the process against Milan on 27 September.

      THE TWO COACHES

      The only time Empoli manager, Aurelio Andreazzoli and Allegri have faced each other previously in Serie finished in a 0-0 draw between Milan and Roma in May 2013. Andreazzoli has one once against the Bianconeri, a 1-0 victory for Roma in February 2013.

      Allegri has won all of his games against Empoli in Serie A, all in the bench of Juventus.
