Juventus entered the record books on Sunday, becoming the first team in Italian history to win 26 successive Serie A matches at home.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men won every top flight game they played in front of their own fans in 2016 and have not dropped points at Juventus Stadium in the league since a 1-1 draw with Frosinone in September 2015.
They returned from the mid-season break with a routine 3-0 win over Bologna, thanks to Gonzalo Higuain’s brace and a Paulo Dybala penalty.
The result not only restored the Bianconeri’s four-point advantage over second-placed Roma at the top of the table, but also saw them notch a new milestone as they go in search of a sixth consecutive Scudetto.
