      The Bianconeri stage an impressive recovery to achieve Scudetto number 19 on the last day of the season following an indifferent start to the campaign

      Thirty two years to the day, Giovanni Trapattoni’s Bianconeri side completed an exhilarating championship comeback by recording a 1-0 home win over Fiorentina to seal a 19th Scudetto title.

      Following an indifferent start to the league campaign, Juventus found themselves in eighth position, trailing Roma, Inter, Cagliari, Catanzaro, Fiorentina, Torino and Napoli after nine weeks of action.

      However, Juve gradually climbed the ladder and managed to reach matchday 20 of the season level on points with the Giallorossi and one ahead of the Partenopei.

      The final run-in was an intriguing head-to-head contest which saw the two sides still level on points five games later. However, matchday 26 proved to be a decisive moment as the Bianconeri’s victory on the road against Udinese, coupled with Roma’s goalless stalemate with Ascoli and Napoli’s home defeat at the hands of Perugia, gave them some breathing space at the top of the table.

      Matchday 28 saw the two main pretenders (Roma and Juventus) share the spoils at a potentially pivotal moment in the race for the Serie A crown. The following week, the penultimate of the season, was the final nail in Napoli’s coffin as Trapattoni’s side ended their title bid with a 1-0 success at the Stadio San Paolo.

      The Giallorossi entered the final encounter of the campaign trailing by just one point, but Juve weren’t looking at other results and instead stayed focused on the task at hand, registering a 1-0 home triumph to complete a historic comeback and clinch Scudetto number 19.
