UEFA Champions League statistics
• The defeat in Munich ended Juventus' 18-match unbeaten run in UEFA competition.

• Before David Alaba's goal in the first leg, Juve had gone 490 minutes without conceding in the competition, since Mikkel Beckmann's effort for FC Nordsjælland on matchday three. They have conceded six goals in nine games, the joint lowest total among the quarter-finalists with Málaga CF.

• Gianluigi Buffon and Leonardo Bonucci have played every minute of Juve's campaign.

• Juventus's win against Nordsjælland on matchday four ended an unprecedented nine successive draws in European competition; the previous high was seven.

• On matchday one, Juventus became only the second team to avoid defeat against Chelsea FC in the UEFA Champions League after going two goals down, following AS Monaco FC in the 2004 semi-final second leg.

• Stephan Lichtsteiner and Arturo Vidal are suspended after their first-leg bookings; Claudio Marchisio and Giorgio Chiellini will incur bans with their next yellow cards.

• Mirko Vučinić struck twice on Saturday, the first a 72nd-minute penalty after an incident that saw the visitors' Giuseppe Rizzo sent off, as Juventus beat Pescara Calcio 2-1. Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli were suspended.

• Juventus have won their last five home games, and had gone 465 minutes without conceding at the Juventus Stadium before Emmanuel Cascione pulled a late goal back for Pescara.

• Antonio Conte made seven changes to the side that started against Bayern, with Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Federico Peluso and Bonucci retaining their places.

• Sebastian Giovinco was taken off on 32 minutes against Pescara with a right knee injury.

• Bayern started the season with nine straight victories in all competitions – the last time they began with even six, in 2000/01, they claimed the UEFA Champions League.
