      February saw five matches in three competitions with just two goals allowed!

      The month of February saw the return of the UEFA Champions League as the knock-out rounds began, but there was much more than that. Five matches across three competitions with four wins, one draw, 13 goals scored and two allowed...not bad! 

      TOUCHDOWN JUVENTUS!

      On Super Bowl Sunday, the Bianconeri scored their own touchdown putting seven goals past Sassuolo in the biggest win of the Serie A season. 

      A first half double from Sami Khedira and fine goals from Miralem Pjanic and Alex Sandro had the Bianconeri up and running with a 4-0 lead at the half while Gonzalo Higuain fired home a second half Hat-Trick to seal the 7-0 win! 

      Just five days later, the Bianconeri took the tricky trip east to Florence facing Fiorentina in a rare Friday night encounter. In professional fashion, Allegri's boys saw off La Viola with a 0-2 win in Gianluigi Buffon's 500th Juventus match. 

      On his return, Federico Bernardeschi fired home a lovely free kick while Pipita kept his fine form going with a second half goal that sealed victory while marking his 50th time finding the back of the net for Juventus. Scudettos are won on night's like these! 

      4 games - 3 assists - 2 goals Berna begins 2018 in style 👊 #ForzaJuve

      The third and final Serie A match of the month was another big one as the Bianconeri traveled across to Turin to the Olimpico for the third Derby Della Mole of the season. In a tricky Sunday lunchtime kick-off, the Bianconeri dug deep to see off a game toro side. Alex Sandro's goal from a wonderful assist by Bernardeschi sealed three more all-important points. 

      CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RETURNS!

      Finally, after the long winter, the Champions League returned to Turin on 13 February as Juventus hosted Tottenham for the first time in European competition. 

      What a stunning start it was for the Bianconeri as Gonzalo Higuain had the Bianconeri up 2-0 early in the first half with a quick-fire double. 

      A DREAM START!!! #TOGETHER #JuveTOT

      However, Spurs would battle back to earn a 2-2 draw at Allianz Stadium leaving everything in the balance for the second leg at Wembley in a few weeks time...

      COPPA ITALIA: OFF TO ROME!

      The month closed out with some final business for the Bianconeri to take care of if they wanted to book a fourth consecutive trip to Rome for the Coppa Italia final.

      Leading 1-0 from the first leg in Bergamo, Juventus was halfway to the finish line, but needed to put in a solid 90 minutes to seal the deal. 

      That's exactly what they did with a late Miralem Pjanic penalty confirming a 1-0 win on the night and 2-0 on aggregate to book another cup final. 

      WHEN THE SNOW ARRIVED...

      If you remember there's a gap on the calendar when the Bianconeri should've played another match....well you're right! On 25 February, Juventus was scheduled to play a Serie A match against Atalanta but right as the squads came out for warm-ups, the snow descended from the Alps and the match had to be postponed...

      OFFICIAL: #JuveAtalanta is postponed due to adverse weather conditions. ❄️
