Angel Di Maria scored the only goal of the game as Juventus beat Freiburg in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 encounter.
Juve registered a whopping 20 shots at the Allianz Stadium, where Di Maria’s second-half header Bianconeri gave them a slender lead in the tie.
The Argentina international continued to shine in this competition, having netted a hat-trick against Nantes in the previous round.
Freiburg, who saw their five-match unbeaten streak halted, must come from behind when the teams recommence battle in Germany next week.
