It’s been five times that Juventus have emerged from an away fixture against Atalanta with a 1-0 win, the most common victorious scoreline registered and the final outcome of the first and last encounters played in Bergamo.
The first in the series dates back to 19 September 1937, when Mario Bergonzini’s winner three minutes from the end prevented the Nerazzurri from enjoying a victorious season-debut at the Stadio Mario Brumana.
In 1952, it was Danish forward John Hansen who broke the deadlock to deliver a crucial success for Juve on the way to their ninth Scudetto win.
Skip to 1978 and Marco Tardelli was the man on the scoresheet, firing a first-time strike past Luciano Bodini (who would become a Juve player the next year). Past and future Bianconeri Carlo Osti, Gianpietro Marchetti, Roberto Tavola and Giorgio Mastropasqua also all lined up for the hosts that day.
Atalanta v Juve was the opening game of 1996, and that year Fabrizio Ravanelli scored the decisive goal from the spot after being handed the opportunity by a future rock of Marcello Lippi’s Juve defence: Paolo Montero.
The most recent 1-0 away victory against Atalanta came last season on 8 May 2013, three days after the team had secured a second consecutive Scudetto title, when Alessando Matri controlled a wonderful Andrea Pirlo long ball and unleashed an unstoppable diagonal effort that flew into the top corner.
