Juventus may well have punched their ticket to the next round of the Champions League after thumping Celtic on Tuesday evening.  Barring a historic meltdown, scoring three goals away from home should be more than enough for the decorated Italian side to move on in the competition.

A closer look at the statistics reveal some key aspects to the story of this match. 

This list starts with the forever competent Gianluigi Buffon, the limited touches it took to score goals, the divine distribution of Andrea Pirlo, curious crossing, a costly error and the hopefulness of Celtic and their shot attempts.

All statistics are courtesy of Whoscored, Opta and my own observations.
