Italian champions Juventus could end 2012 with a record 94 points should they beat Cagliari on Friday evening.
The club’s previous best points tally in a solar year belongs to Fabio Capello’s Old Lady side when they collected 93 in 2005.
Juventus, despite having the Champions League to deal with this term, are seven points better off this season than at the same stage last year.
Those seven points are the difference between themselves and second-placed Inter in Serie A right now.
Juve have also scored eight goals more and conceded one less than after 17 games of the 2011-12 campaign.
