The Juventus stats that will strike fear into Harry Kane & co.

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Juventus have conceded just one goal in 1,440 minutes of football. In their last 16 games, stretching all the way back to mid-November, the Italian side have won 14, drawn 2 and lost none in all competitions, keeping a remarkable 15 clean sheets in the process. 
Harry Kane and co. are faced with the mammoth task of breaching Europe's fiercest defence as they travel to Turin to face Juventus in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg on Tuesday. 
In a 16-match spell that has seen Juventus go unbeaten and concede just one goal in all competitions since mid-November; keeping out the likes of Barcelona, Napoli, Inter Milan and Roma, the Premier League's top scorer has the chance to prove his European pedigree against arguably the best defensive unit in world football. 

After scoring the winner in Tottenham's 1-0 victory over Arsenal in Saturday's north London derby, Kane spoke ahead of Tuesday's encounter with Juventus. He said "Massive game but that's what you look forward to as a player." Continuing "You want to test yourself against the best and Juventus have been amazing in the Champions League recently, so looking forward to it."  

Can Harry Kane manage to do what Messi, Suarez, Mertens, Icardi and Dzeko couldn't?
