    On this day 87 years ago, Juventus brought home their first championship title victory in what would become an enduring and hugely successful collaboration with the Agnelli family

    Today is the anniversary of the first Scudetto won under the Juventus-Agnelli partnership, a title which they lifted 21 years after last having done so in 1905, signalling the start of an extraordinary relationship that has come to define Juventus Football Club.

    In fact, it was a result achieved two weeks beforehand that had made the moment of lifting the title seem inevitable: the first leg of the tie against Alba Roma, who were beaten by the Bianconeri with a resounding 7-1 scoreline.

    In the capital for the away leg, Juve put the outcome beyond doubt with another five goals: a hat-trick from Pietro Pastore, a strike from Federico Munerati and an own goal from Attilio Mattei.

    The win was dedicated to the man who had helped to make the overall win possible but never had the chance to see it come to fruition: the Hungarian coach Jeno Karoly, who had died suddenly just a few weeks beforehand.

    Juventus-Agnelli is a relationship which continues to bring glory - the latest occasion being the 4-0 win against Lazio in the Italian Super Cup just four days ago – and long may it continue.
