      The five main takeaways from the Bianconeri’s 4-2 victory over Benevento on Saturday
      Paulo piles up the records

      It was an afternoon of many milestones for Paulo Dybala, who became only the second player in history to score three hat-tricks away from home in a single Serie A season, following in the footsteps of legendary Juventus striker, Giampiero Boniperti, who achieved the feat in 1949/50.

      La Joya also brought up his half-century of Serie A goals for the Bianconeri when he converted the first of his two penalties.

      His current tally of 25 strikes across all competitions makes this his most prolific season to date.

      Brave Benevento

      The spirited hosts made for a hard-fought contest in what was their very first home fixture against the Bianconeri.

      The two goals they scored today were as many as Juventus had conceded over their previous 17 Serie A fixtures, as striker Cheick Diabaté made it five strikes in just three appearances for Benevento at the Stadio Ciro Vigorito.

      Moreover, the six shots on target that Juve faced was the joint-highest this season.

      Douglas Costa’s cracker

      We may already have seen the winner for April’s goal of the month award! In the 82nd minute, Douglas Costa drove down the right byline, bamboozling his markers as he cut in on to his left foot and unleashed a rocket of a shot into the top corner.

      A comprehensive way to wrap up victory for the Bianconeri.

      Bianconeri shooting boots

      Juve have now scored 74 goals from 31 Serie A matches this season. The last time they netted more at this stage of a campaign was all the way back in 1960.

      The Bianconeri have been sharp shooters from long distance too. They’ve now found the net 14 times from outside the box – at least three more than any other side in Serie A this term.

      Boosting the Scudetto bid

      With today’s result, the Bianconeri have now won 14 of their last 15 league games as they moved seven points ahead of second-placed Napoli – before the Partenopei’s home fixture with Chievo tomorrow – with seven Serie A matches left.
