Juventus will play their sixth game in Serie A against Spezia today at 18:00 CET.
Let's get in the mood for the Matchday 23 meeting with a look at the curiosities and statistics.
HOLDING BACK | Juventus have set a new record for clean sheets in the first 22 games of a Serie A campaign in the era of three points for a win with 14, matching the club's previous best set in season 1985/86. Furthermore, Juve have collected five clean sheets from their last six Serie A away games, but conceded five times in the other, against Napoli.
POLES APART | A challenge between one of the two teams yet to score in the game's final quarter of an hour and the only team that has not yet conceded a goal over the same period. In addition, Spezia have conceded 10 goals over the closing 15 minutes, making them one of the two worst defences in this section of the match.
INSIDE JOB | The Bianconeri are the only team that have conceded all their goals this season from inside the penalty area (17 out of 17).
CONNECT FOUR | Ángel Di María has been actively involved in four goals (two goals, two assists) in his last five league appearances - with the Argentine on the field in his 13 Serie A games, Juventus have a better scoring average (1.6 to 1.4) and a higher win percentage (61.5% to 55.6%).
MIND THE GAP | While Federico Gatti's debut in Serie A was in the first meeting against Spezia this season, Leonardo Bonucci is one appearance shy of equalling Francesco Janich in 44th place in the overall appearance ranking in Serie A with 425 matches.
