Tonight, Juventus will play one of their most anticipated matches of the campaign when they host Inter at the Allianz Stadium.
The club’s official website provided us with the most interesting stats and facts leading up to the big occasion.
In their last 16 Serie A games against the Nerazzurri in Turin, the Bianconeri recorded 10 wins, four draws and just two losses.
On another note, the Derby d’Italia has been as expected, with six red cards shown in the last eight league games. Juventus stars have received two, while four Inter players have been sacked.
Max Allegri hopes to trust what is, on paper at least, one of the strongest back lines in Europe. Juventus have only conceded seven goals in Serie A this season. Only Barcelona (4) and Benfica (5) have allowed less in Europe’s top 10 leagues.
Interestingly, crossing has been a major strength for Juve, who have scored more than any other team in Serie A in this way (7), while their rivals have conceded more goals from crossing than any other team (5). Hopefully we can make this stat count tonight.
Finally, Juventus has the largest number of players born after 1/1/2000 to contribute in goals (either scoring or assisting). We are talking about five young players in Dušan Vlahović (seven), Moise Kean (one), Nicolò Fagioli (one), Fabio Miretti (one) and Samuel Iling-Junior (one).
