      In the last Cagliari v Juventus fixture on 21 December 2012, the Bianconeri won 3-1 after overturning a deficit, a feat they had managed just once before against the Rossoblu away from home

      Juventus’ most recent away fixture against Cagliari was a memorable one for the travelling Bianconeri faithful, who witnessed their side come back from behind to pull off a 3-1 triumph.

      It was a welcome Christmas treat in the final game before the 2012 winter break, with the Rossoblu’s advantage from the penalty spot at the end of the first half shot to ruins by some inspired second-half Antonio Conte substitutions.

      Alessandro Matri and Mirko Vucinic entered the fray, and both made the difference. The current Milan striker netted a swift double, with the second goal prompting wild celebrations in the Juve dugout, and the Montenegrin finished the job when he walked the ball into an open net after a pinpoint cross from Sebastian Giovinco.

      In the history of Juventus' away trips to take on Cagliari, only once previously had the hosts been unable to hold on to a lead established in the first 45 minutes.

      The date was 8 May 1983, and it was Zbigniew Boniek and Michel Platini who ensured the Bianconeri emerged with three points after going behind to a Gigi Piras strike.
