Second-half strikes from Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez – his first away goal in the Champions League for six years – saw the Bianconeri brush Malmo aside 2-0 in Sweden yesterday evening.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men, who put in a consummate performance in all areas of the Swedbank Stadion pitch, claimed their first away European success of the season and in the process, took a giant step towards the knockout phase.
It is the first time the Old Lady have won back-to-back games in the Champions League since beating Celtic over two legs in the round of 16 back in February-March 2013.
Last night’s victory also signalled a return to winning ways for Juventus on the road in Europe’s elite competition, having drawn once and lost five in their previous six outings.
Here is a more detailed look at the main statistics from last night’s Champions League triumph:
Successful dribbles from Pogba, including the slalom run which led to Juventus’ second strike of the evening.
Amount of shots on target from Claudio Marchisio who proved himself a menace all game by getting in behind the Malmo backline.
Number of goalscoring chances laid on by Arturo Vidal for his team-mates - a UEFA Champions League record for any Juventus player.
Good long balls from Marchisio including his sumptuous assist for Llorente’s opener.
Recoveries made by Andrea Pirlo in a combative performance from the Maestro.
Percentage of attacks that came down the Bianconeri’s right flank – Stephan Lichtsteiner the main outlet due to his trademark marauding runs.
Possession enjoyed by the visitors in yesterday evening’s dominating display.
Successful passes made by Vidal who continuously pulled the strings in midfield and also performed three layoffs to his team-mates.
Percentage of passes completed by Simone Padoin who also teased the most crosses into the Malmo mixer (four).
