      Five key talking points from last night's victory at the Tardini

      There's no better way to start the season with three victories out of three, as the Bianconeri head into the international break. Here is a look at five themes from last night:

      1. SUPER MARIO!

      A great game from Mario Mandzukic who was absolutely decisive  last night, with a goal at the beginning of the game and a delicious back-heel assist for Matuidi.

      Yesterday's match was the third game in which Mandzukic scored a goal and provided an assist in a league match for the Bianconeri, with the previous one coming in April 2017 against Genoa.

      It was his second consecutive goal, having scored against Lazio last weekend, which hasn't happened since November 2016.

      2. ALL BLAISE

      It wasn't just a goal last night for Blaise Matuidi, but he also made 49 passes, with 36 coming in the Parma half and an overall pass completion rate of over 90%.

      It was Matuidi's fourth goal in Serie A , three of which have come away, with two in Emilia (Bologna and Parma).

      3. DYBALA 100

      It was Serie A appearance number 100 for Paulo Dybala in the Black and White stripes, as he made his introduction as a second half substitute in the 80th minute.

      4. THREE FROM THREE

      For the first time in Juventus history, the Bianconeri have won their first three Serie A games in three consecutive seasons. In addition, last night's Parma win was the 15th consecutive away victory for La Vecchia Signora.

      5. FAST START

      Juventus have already scored three goals in the first 30 minutes of play in this league. This continues their form from last season whereby the team finished with having scored the most goals in the first half hour of play with 27.

      Moreover, the last time that Juve found the back of the net within the opening couple of minutes was in November 2013, when Fernando Llorente scored vs Napoli.
