      Five topics of discussion from the great Bianconeri victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford
      1. LA JOYA SHINES BRIGHT

      Paulo Dybala followed up his Matchday Two hat-trick with a vital goal to open the scoring at Old Trafford last night.

      Cristiano Ronaldo's cross from the right found Juan Cuadrado in the box and his effort deflected into the path of Dybala who sidefooted home after 17 minutes. The goal provided to be the decider, and it was fitting that La Joya on his 150th Juve appearance in all competitions was last night's match winner. Dybala now has four goals in two Champions League appearances, as well as five goals so far this season.

      2. PERFECT FIRST HALF

      As well as leading at the break at Old Trafford, Juve dominated the play, as evidenced in their possession stats having 70% of the ball to United's 30%. The Red Devils only managed to have one shot, something that hasn't happened to them since they faced Bayern Munich in the Champions League in April 2014.

      3. WHAT NUMBERS!

      For the first time in their history, Juventus have won five games in a row between the Champions League/European Cup (three in 2017/18 and two in the current edition).

      It's the fourth occasion in which the Bianconeri have won their first three games in the Champions League: 1995/96, 2003/04, 2004/05 and 2018/19, but this is the first time in which the team has yet to concede.

      4. STILL UNBEATEN

      Three wins, six goals scored and zero conceded.

      Amongst the teams that have played in three games in this Champions League this season, Juventus is the only one to have three cleansheets.

      5. AFTER 21 YEARS

      After a draw and three defeats, Juventus gained their first victory against Manchester United in Europe which they hadn't achieved since December 1997, which also on that occasion was a 1-0 win.
