      Juventus.com profiles the 10 players to feature for both the Bianconeri and Monaco over the years

      Ten players have worn the shirts of both Juventus and Monaco over the years, many of them world class performers who have shone on both domestic and international stages.

      Juventus.com discovers them below:

      Patrice Evra

      The French full-back is the big-name ex who is preparing to line up against his former employers at Juventus Stadium on Tuesday evening.

      He joined the Bianconeri from Manchester United in the summer and has made 23 appearances and scored one goal to date.

      His time at Monaco between 2002 and 2006 provided the springboard for subsequent success in England and Europe. He appeared a total of 120 times for the Stade Louis II club (21 of these coming in the Champions League) and lifted the Coupe de la Ligue at the culmination of his first season.  

      Vladimir Jugovic

      Playing alongside Evra in that Coupe de la Ligue winning squad was Jugovic, a man fondly remembered by Bianconeri fans across the globe for his victorious penalty in the 1996 Champions League final shootout.

      During two campaigns in Turin he played 56 Serie A games, scoring eight goals, and added a Scudetto, UEFA Super Cup and Coppa Italia to his list of glittering achievements. His spell in Montecarlo was a little less auspicious, yielding just 19 appearances over a two-year stint from 2001 to 2003.

      Marco Di Vaio

      The Italian forward followed up his two-year stay in Turin (2002 to 2004) with a solitary campaign in France (2006/07) via a stint in Spain with Valencia. Fifty-five starts in the black and white stripes saw him bag 18 goals, while he netted eight in 29 appearances for the Stade Louis II club.

      Christian Vieri

      Di Vaio’s arrival in the south of France coincided with that of striking powerhouse Vieri, who hit three goals in seven fixtures before returning to Italian football.

      His time in Montecarlo came towards the end of a glittering career, in which one of the many stops on his journey included a solitary eight-goal campaign with the Bianconeri.  

      Sergio Almiron

      Bright things were expected of the midfielder when he made a big-money move to Turin in June 2007, but he soon found himself loaned out to Monaco after making just 10 appearances and weighing in with one goal.

      Eleven appearances and two goals followed in France before he was deemed surplus to requirements due to the emergence of Claudio Marchisio.

      Olivier Kapo

      Another loan move from Juventus to Monaco came in the form of Ivory Coast winger Olivier Kapo, who joined the Ligue 1 club on loan in 2005/06 after finding it tough to displace a certain Pavel Nedved in his favored position on the left-hand side of midfield.

      He made a reasonable impression in Montecarlo, scoring five goals in 25 starts, but a permanent move failed to materialise. His time at Juventus officially came to an end when he joined English club Birmingham City in June 2007.

      Rui Barros

      Following a raft of honours with Porto, attacking midfielder Barros completed his move to Turin in 1988, winning the Coppa Italia and UEFA Cup under the tutelage of Dino Zoff.

      Sixty appearances and 15 goals triggered a move to Monaco in 1990, where he won the Coupe de France during his first of three seasons at the Stade Louis II.

      Thierry Henry

      A graduate of the red and whites’ youth academy, Henry played the last time Monaco squared up with Juventus in 1998. His career in Montecarlo was mainly spent on the wing, from where he racked up 105 league appearances and 20 goals.

      Europe appeared to bring out the best in the speedster, with an impressive haul of seven goals in nine Champions League games registered during his time at the club.

      Juventus came calling in 1999 but after 16 league starts and three goals, Henry was on the move just a year later, joining Premier League side Arsenal.  

      Lilian Thuram

      The uncompromising defender launched his professional career in France in 1990, winning the Coupe de France at the end of his first season. He made 155 appearances and scored eight goals during his time in the principality before joining Parma in 1996.

      Following a successful opening five seasons in Italy, Juventus recruited the services of the 1998 World Cup winner, adding him to a squad that would go on to win four Serie A titles between 2001 and 2006.

      David Trezeguet

      Playing alongside Henry that night at the Delle Alpi was Trezeguet, a man who would go on to become the Bianconeri’s all-time top foreign goalscorer.

      His clinical finishing abilities were honed during the five years he spent with the red and whites, during which he hit 52 in 93 Ligue 1 games and four in nine Champions League matches.

      After tasting his first trophy successes with two league championships and a French Super Cup, Trezeguet moved to Turin in 2000. His 171 goals in 320 appearances propelled the Bianconeri to four Serie A titles and two Italian Super Cup trophies, enabling him to firmly cement his name in club folklore.
