It’s shaping up to be another season to remember for Juventus, the Serie A title looks all but sewn up at this early stage of the season and with Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick sending the Old Lady through to the Champions League Quarter-Finals to face Ajax the Bianconeri’s European cup drought could be over.
Using stats from Bet Dynamo we can get a clear view at how dominant Juventus have been in the league this season as they sit 15 points clear of Napoli with 10 games still to play.
Juventus stats this season
Goals: To top any league in the world you have to be adept at finding the back of the net and Juventus are no different in that regard. Juventus are a different animal when playing in front of their own supporters, the Bianconeri are yet to draw a blank at home scoring in every single game they have played at the Allianz Stadium this season whilst maintaining their unbeaten home record.
The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo this season has helped Juventus average 2.29 goals per game when playing at home the second best record in the division.
Juventus’ dominance at home has seen them score three or more goals in 42.86% of home games this season, whilst they aren’t shy of goals whilst playing away either failing to score in only 7.14% of games on their travels, they also net on average 1.93 goals per game when they are the away side.
Goals Conceded: With the departure of Gianluigi Buffon last summer many Bianconeri fans were worried that their defence would suffer and goals would be flying in every week.
Juve have been very consistent at the back this season, the return of Leonardo Bonucci and the signing of Joao Cancelo have seen them improve their back line. The Italian champions keep clean sheets in 50% of their games both at home and away. Taking a closer look at their defensive record shows why they have only lost once all season in Serie A.
Juventus concede on average 0.64 goals per game when playing at the Allianz stadium whilst the number rises only a small amount when playing away to 0.71 goals per game. This coupled up with the deadly front line makes Juventus a team that is almost impossible to beat.
Corners: It’s no surprise that Juventus have netted 13 goals from set-pieces so far this season as their corner count is up their amongst the highest in the league. Juve get on average 7.71 corners per game when playing at home which is good enough to rank third in the league. Their constant attacking of the flanks with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Juan Cuadrado, Douglas Costa backed up by Joao Cancelo and Alex Sandro at full-back along with their dominance of possession means their style of play is set up for them to get lots of corners in every match.
Cards: Playing dirty may be the only way to stop a team as talented as Juventus’ especially when they visit your home stadium and you’re hoping to pick up points.
Juventus’ away games see on average 5.29 cards per game which is enough to rank third in the league in terms of cards handed out in away fixtures.
Juventus themselves are no strangers to the dark arts though with the Max Allegri’s side averaging 2.5 cards per game when they play away from home.
