Conte beats Capello Juventus record

Antonio Conte’s Juventus have now gone 29 League games unbeaten – one more than the previous record held by Fabio Capello.

The Old Lady collected their 15th League win of the campaign last night when they defeated Inter 2-0 in Turin.

The best unbeaten run in the League prior to this season stood at 28 matches when Capello was in charge of the Bianconeri during the 2005-06 campaign.

However, Capello’s side actually totalled more points given that his team collected 64 thanks to 18 wins and 10 draws.

Conte’s Juve currently have 59 points and from one game more.

If you take into account the last game of last season under Gigi Del Neri, Juve haven’t been beaten for 30 consecutive matches in Serie A.

That record stat matches what the Juve of Capello and then Claudio Ranieri achieved in 2005-06 and 2007-08 – with their Serie B season in between.

If Juve finish the season unbeaten, they will become the first team to do so in a 20-side Serie A.
