Juventus Record 12th Straight League Win

By Ewomazino Orowor

Juventus, on Sunday, thrashed Chievo 4-0 at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi to record a dozen of consecutive victories in Serie A this season.

Juventus made their intentions clear as early as the 6th minute when Alvaro Morata tapped in from Stephan Lichtsteiner's low cross for the opener.
The Ex-Real Madrid forward would then register his second goal of the afternoon- and fourth of the week in all competitions -five minutes before half time to double the Bianconeri's lead.

Alex Sandro added a thunderous third for the Old Lady just after the hour mark before the outstanding Paul Pogba completed a brilliant team perfomance with a spectacular fourth for the away side in the 67th minute.

The result means Juventus have now recorded successive 4-0 league triumphs away from home following their hammering of Udinese a fortnight ago.
On a grander scale, the result means Massimiliano Allegri has led Juventus to a record-equaling 12th consecutive Serie A win, defeating AC Milan, Fiorentina and AS Roma in the process.

The last time Juventus tasted a league defeat was late October last year, in the hands of Sassuolo. After that loss, the Old Lady fell eleven points off the top of the table leaving their quest for a fifth straight Scudetto all but futile.

However, they have redintegrated themselves and are back in the title race, even going top of the table (albeit briefly) after Sunday's comfortable win over Chievo.

Should Juventus remain inexorable, they could earn a 13th successive league win for the first time in a single season when they welcome lowly Genoa, who are two places above the drop zone, on Wednesday.
