Juventus are undefeated in 13 of their last 14 Champions League matches and that record was extended to 14 out of 14 Wednesday night as they defeated Manchester City 1-0 at the Juventus Stadium to claim top spot after Matchday 5 in Group D and qualify for the group stages.
Manchester City knew a win would seal top spot but Mario Mandzukic scored for the Bianconeri in the 18th minute when he side-footed a cross by Alex Sandro.
Both teams have already made it to the knockout stages with top spot being the prize for the contest.
Paul Pogba was key in everything Juve did well in the game though Man City also had chances of their own.
Sergio Aguero who was substituted in the second half by Raheem Sterling pounced on a faulty pass in the dying minutes of the match but failed to score.
There was a goal-mouth scramble in the 55th minute in the Juventus box.
Fernando nodded the ball downward and it hit the under of the post but Yaya Toure failed to score from a rebound, Buffon alert to the situation.
Sterling steered his effort wide in the second half after a cross by Kevin de Bruyne.
Juventus now have 11 points while City in second place are on nine points going into the last group games in December.
The sides met at the Etihad in the Europa League back in 2010. Adam Johnson and Vincenzo Iaquinta were the scorers in a 1-1 draw.
