Strikes from Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo – the third-latest goal recorded in Serie A this season – saw Massimiliano Allegri’s men defeat Torino 2-1 in an entertaining Derby della Mole encounter at Juventus Stadium yesterday evening.
Bruno Peres’ equaliser for the visitors signalled the first time the Bianconeri’s rearguard had been breached by the Granata in over 12 years – 4663 days ago to be precise.
Last night’s victory also meant that the Old Lady have now gone 17 games unbeaten against their inter-city rivals (W13, D4), with Juventus also winning the last seven on the bounce.
Here is a more detailed look at the key statistics from Juventus Stadium:
Interceptions made by Claudio Marchisio with Il Principino attempting to keep things ticking at the heart of midfield.
Chances created by opening goalscorer Vidal with the fifth leading to Pirlo’s stoppage-time winner.
Lay-offs performed by Carlos Tevez as he looked to be the fulcrum between Juventus’ midfield and attack.
Crosses pumped into the Toro area by Patrice Evra. The Frenchman was making his first league start since the 1-1 draw with Sassuolo in October and linked up well with compatriot Paul Pogba during the course of yesterday's encounter.
Recoveries made by Stephan Lichtsteiner who galloped up and down the Bianconeri’s right flank all game.
Possession enjoyed by Massimiliano Allegri’s men as they looked to take the game to their inter-city rivals. On the flip side, it was the lowest percentage Torino have seen of the ball all season (38.7%).
Successful passes from Pirlo with the Maestro also threading 11 good long balls to his team-mates.
Percentage of dribbles completed by Bianconeri trio Angelo Ogbonna, Patrice Evra and Marchisio.
Total passes made by Allegri’s troops as they dictated proceedings throughout.
