Incredible unbeaten run
Juventus Women are doing something unprecedented in the history of female football, as they are currently unbeaten in 46 consecutive Serie A games, registering 30 wins in a row. Last season, Juventus Women had a perfect record, collecting 22 wins out of 22 matches.
Flawless since the beginning
The Juventus female team was founded in 2017 and ever since its birth it has been the best team in Italy, having won every title since 2017.
The first four titles were won under the guidance of Rita Guarino, with current coach Joe Montemurro arriving from Arsenal this summer.
Premiere in the UWCL
Moreover, this season is the team’s first season in the group stage of the UEFA Women’s Champions League. Before, the team never managed to get beyond the first phase.
And it must be said, that this year their road to the group stage was flawless, scoring 20 goals and conceding just 1 in the process.
30 consecutive victories
As mentioned above, Juventus Women are currently on a streak of 30 consecutive victories in Serie A. This is a very notable achievement, as they are the first team in Serie A history to achieve this, surpassing Brescia’s 29 consecutive victories between 2013 and 2014.
In the last Serie A match before the clash against Chelsea, Juventus Women defeated Napoli 2-0, registering their sixth win of the season.
The first goal of the match came from Arianna Caruso after just 26 seconds. This is the fastest goal scored in the last two seasons in Serie A, with Juve’s Gloria Marinelli matching this last January against Fiorentina.
