Juventus v Udinese, the statistics

The Bianconeri’s cutting edge pays dividends as Udinese’s winning start to 2013 is brought to a halt in resounding fashion at Juventus Stadium

An inspired performance from Paul Pogba helped the Bianconeri shatter Udinese’s winning start to 2013 with a solid 4-0 victory at Juventus Stadium.

Along with two superb strikes from range, the 19-year-old also proved a capable understudy to Andrea Pirlo in midfield, contributing 51 completed passes throughout the course of the 90 minutes, just three behind Bianconeri leader Emmanuele Giaccherini.

While Udinese commanded the lion’s share of possession (55%), it was Juventus who represented the greatest threat on goal, with Daniele Padelli called into action on nine occasions from a total of 18 attempts. Gigi Buffon, meanwhile, enjoyed a quiet night between the posts as the visitors fashioned just three efforts on target.
