      Twenty-two years ago today, Gianluca Vialli’s brace sinks Parma in a Coppa Italia quarter-final first leg meeting at the Stadio Delle Alpi

      As the Bianconeri gear up to face Parma in tomorrow’s Coppa Italia quarter-final clash at the Ennio Tardini, Juventus.com turns the clock back to revisit a success that came precisely 22 years ago in the same competition against Wednesday night’s opposition.

      Close rivals throughout much of the 90s, this installment was every bit as hard fought as the other head-to-head meetings that characterised an exciting period for Italian football.

      With a ninth trophy success in their sights, Giovanni Trapattoni’s side pushed forward to earn a foothold in the tie but were forced to wait until the 78th minute before making their pressure tell.

      Gianluca Vialli it was who brought the Stadio Delle Alpi to its feet, executing a spectacular overhead kick that flashed past Marco Ballotta to put Juventus in the driving seat.

      Their advantage was to last only two minutes, however, as Tomas Brolin bagged an important away goal for the visitors to seemingly give them the edge ahead of an all-important return leg in a fortnight’s time.

      Gialloblu celebrations were to prove short lived, though, with Vialli’s fearsome shot across Ballotta four minutes later proving enough to gain a slender advantage ahead of the Bianconeri’s trip to Emilia-Romagna.

      A 1-1 draw at the Tardini enabled Juventus to progress through to the semi-final stage, where they were eventually toppled by Torino on away goals following a 3-3 aggregate scoreline.
