Juventus seemed to be in control during the vast majority of yesterday’s 2-0 home win against Genoa, and the statistics make that dominance clear to see.
The main area of superiority to emerge from the figures is in attack, where the clear upper-hand that Antonio Conte’s men enjoyed saw them find the net for the 22nd consecutive Serie A game.
With almost 60% of the possession, the Bianconeri were able to dictate the play according to their own style, making 632 passes compared to Genoa’s 385.
In tune with the manager’s desire to build moves from the back, Giorgio Chiellini enjoyed the most touches of the ball (100), followed by Andrea Pirlo, Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli.
Juve’s dominance in attack is most evident from the shots they managed to register: the Bianconeri had 23 efforts in total (of which 10 were on target) compared to just four from the visitors, none of which forced Gigi Buffon into a save.
In the end, the two shots which found the net and proved decisive came from Carlos Tevez and Arturo Vidal. The Argentine’s first-half strike took him up to five in total for the season, while the Chilean’s opener from the penalty spot means he is right behind him in the table of Juve’s top scorers with four.
