A commanding performance against the reigning champions of Spain enabled the Bianconeri to wrap up a place in the Champions League last 16 with yesterday evening’s goalless draw at Juventus Stadium.
A heavily defensive approach adopted by Diego Simeone’s men made it difficult for the hosts to convert their territorial dominance into clear-cut attempts.
But the match stats show it was not for a lack of effort, with Juventus registering some of the best figures seen in this year’s competition.
Here’s a look at some of the main numbers:
Clean sheets from the Bianconeri’s last four European games at Juventus Stadium.
European home matches without defeat on home soil.
Possession recorded by Juventus, the third best figure in a Champions League game this term after Bayern (vs CSKA) and Barcelona (vs APOEL Nicosia).
Passing accuracy by the Bianconeri. Only Paris Saint-Germain have recorded a higher percentage this season.
Passes made by Giorgio Chiellini, a figure only surpassed by Bayern’s Xabi Alonso in this year’s Champions League.
Total passes – the Bianconeri’s best return in this season’s competition.
