Cagliari will travel to Juventus Stadium hoping to continue their revival under new boss Gianluca Festa, who has yielded two victories from his opening three games since taking the reins from previous incumbent Zdenek Zeman.
History however is firmly against the visitors, with their last victory in Turin coming 29 top flight games ago, in November 1968 to be precise.
This task looks even more challenging considering the Bianconeri’s unbeaten Serie A home record this season, a feat shared with four teams from Europe’s top five leagues.
Away day blues
Just one triumph for the Rossoblu from their last 12 away trips (four draws, seven defeats) and they have conceded in nine consecutive outings (19 goals in total).
Clean sheet contrast
Cagliari possess the division’s poorest clean sheet record, registering just three from 34 games, while Juventus, whose rearguard is the best in Serie A, have enjoyed 19 defensive shutouts.
Shoot on sight?
The Bianconeri sit top of the pile for the most goals from outside the box in Europe’s top five leagues with a figure of 19, while Cagliari are Serie A’s most susceptible to a long distance strike, conceding 12.
The Ekdal factor
The former Juventus midfielder will be one to keep tabs on tomorrow evening, having scored four of his five goals this season away from home.
Massimiliano Allegri was in charge of the Rossoblu between 2008 and 2010 and has an unbeaten managerial record against his former employers, recording seven wins and a draw.
