      The Bianconeri clinch their maiden league triumph on 9 April 1905

      Less than eight years after being formed, the Bianconeri were toasting their first success as a club when they lifted the Scudetto title on 9 April 1905.

      Back then, the league format was very diverse to today’s Serie A championship, comprising of just six fixtures.

      The Old Lady went into the three-way final round of the campaign top of the pile with six points, thanks to two victories over US Milanese and as many draws against Genoa.

      When the latter sides went head-to-head on the last day, the Ligurians failed to defeat Milanese on home soil, resulting in them finishing behind the eventual champions by a solitary point.  

      Possessing eight Italians among their starting XI, Juventus were run by Alfred Dick and managed by Gioacchino Armano 110 years ago.

      Here’s how the title-winning squad lined up: Durante; Armano, Mazzia; Walty, Goccione, Diment; Barberis, Varetti, Forlano, Squair, Donna.
