With last night’s Carlos Tevez-inspired 2-1 victory over Parma, the Bianconeri made it 15 consecutive league wins at Juventus Stadium this season and raised their points tally to 81. Never in the history of the club have Juve had so many points in Serie A after 30 games.
Antonio Conte said after the match that he was running out of superlatives to describe this extraordinary team, and the statistics from last night’s outing go some way to explaining why.
First of all, his men had gone 550 minutes in the league without conceding before Cristiano Molinari rifled home from the edge of the area to pull one back for the visitors.
The triumph also meant Juve became the side to break Parma’s 17-game unbeaten league run, a period now bookended on either side by defeats to Juventus.
The shot count was balanced – 10 to nine overall in the Bianconeri’s favour – but what really swung it was the difference in accuracy. While Juve recorded 87.5 per cent, the visitors’ figure was just 42.9.
What’s more, the gap between the Bianconeri’s success in the tackle and that of Roberto Donadoni’s men also stands out (88 to 52 per cent).
On the ball, Martin Caceres impressed once again, topping the Bianconeri passing index with 64 completed, while Leonardo Bonucci also displayed his strong technical ability, playing nine successful long balls: more than anyone else in the black and white stripes.
