A 0-0 draw with Inter saw a 44-match run of scoring snapped for the Bianconeri, ending a Serie A record run

Juventus' record run of consecutive games with a goal in Serie A has come to an end. 

After 44 matches saw the club net at least once, a 0-0 draw with Inter on Saturday brought the record-setting run to a close. 

The match was also the first time any club had held Juventus without a goal in Turin since August of 2015 when Udinese held them without a goal

The draw kept Inter on top of the league standings for the time being, but moved them just two points clear of Napoli, who play Fiorentina on Sunday. 

Despite the result on the road, it was a tough match for the Nerazzurri.

The visiting side failed to register a single shot on taget in the first half, the first time that has happened to the club since 2014. 

The league leaders also conceded a massive 21 fouls on the night, clearly struggling to deal with a Juventus attack that racked up eight shots on target for the game. Both stats represent season-highs against Inter. 

Inter face a Coppa Italia match against Pordenone on Tuesday before returning to Serie A action with a clash against Udinese next weekend, while Juventus will try to start a new league scoring streak against Bologna next Sunday.
