Hernanes registered his first ever goal for Juventus in what was his 20th appearance for the club in all competitions. The Brazilian midfielder last netted in the league almost a year ago on 10 May 2015 in Lazio vs. Inter (incidentally a brace) and he becomes the Bianconeri’s 15th top-flight goalscorer this term, fewer only than Roma (18), Carpi (17) and Fiorentina (16).
Simone Zaza’s 80th minute header means that the striker has now scored five times in the league and eight in all competitions this season, seven of which he has celebrated at Juventus Stadium. His last four Serie A strikes have all come off the bench in the final ten minutes of matches.
Paul Pogba has 12 Serie A assists to his name this season – more than any other Bianconeri player.
Six successful dribbles for Juan Cuadrado against Carpi – more than anyone else on the pitch.
Yesterday’s clean sheet was Gianluigi Buffon’s 21st this term, equalling his personal record set in the 2011/12 season. The iconic keeper and captain has not conceded in 10 successive Serie A matches at home.
