    The Bianconeri have welcomed Roma to Juventus Stadium two times for Serie A fixtures – and hit them for four on both occasions

    If two's company and three's a crowd, then four's the perfect number for Juventus v Roma. Since Conte took over the helm, the Bianconeri have comfortably won both league meetings with the Giallorossi at Juventus Stadium, plundering four goals on each occasion.

    In Conte's first season in charge, Luis Enrique brought Roma to Turin in Week 34, only to see Arturo Vidal dash their hopes within the first eight minutes by hitting a devastating double. Pirlo notched a third before the break, stroking home the rebound after Stekelenburg had initially saved his penalty, and Marchisio made it four in the second period with a well-placed effort from outside the box.

    The following year, Zeman's charges were crushed by another eight-minute blitz, this time between the 11th and 19th minute, which saw the Bianconeri storm into an unassailable three-goal lead. Pirlo's free kick, Vidal's penalty and Matri's composed finish killed the game as a contest with not even a quarter of it played. Osvaldo's spot kick was inconsequential and the three-goal cushion was restored late on when Barzagli marauded up the length of the pitch before slipping Giovinco in to add the fourth.

    To put Antonio Conte's results into perspective, Juventus have only scored four goals against Roma on three other occasions in history (though there have been a few even bigger results).

    The first 4-0 was recorded in 1947. Also on this occasion the Bianconeri found themselves two goals up inside the first ten minutes, through Korostolev and Candiani. The latter then made it a brace and Czech winger Vycpalek (who guided Juve to the Scudetto as coach in 1973) completed the scoring.

    On 27 December 1959, a 1-0 scoreline turned into a rout in the last 15 minutes, Stacchini, Sivori and Boniperti mercilessly putting the Giallorossi to the sword after the Argentine No.10 had given Juve the lead midway through the first period.

    Finally, we have another 4-1 in 1978/79, when a future Italy manager met a past one: Trapattoni's Juve hosted Valcareggi's Roma. Bettega wasted little time and put Trap's troops in front with a 6th-minute strike. Pruzzo temporarily levelled matters just before the hour mark before Fanna took centre stage by helping himself to two goals. Romeo Benetti, who joined the Giallorossi the following season and saw out his career in the capital, then added the fourth.
