      As Juventus prepare to take on Bologna, Juventus.com picks out three of the Bianconeri’s 38 victories at home to the Rossoblu

      The Bianconeri boast a strong home record against Sunday’s opponents, having won 38 and drawn 25 of their past 68 matches when Bologna have paid the visit to Turin.

      The Old Lady have scored more than double the number of goals netted by the Rossoblu in these contests (109 to 52) and Juventus.com looks back at eight of these strikes from three memorable victories in this fixture.

      Juventus 2-1 Bologna, 2003

      David Trezeguet converted a late penalty to wrap up the points for Marcello Lippi’s men in a 2-1 victory over Bologna on 5 October 2003.

      The visitors came close to scoring early on when Andres Guglielminpietro headed wide from Cristian Zaccardo’s deep cross.

      In the 23rd minute, Juventus adopted a similar approach to take the lead, when Mark Iuliano nodded in Pavel Nedved’s pinpoint ball from the left.

      Just three minutes later, however, the Rossoblu found parity when Nicola Legrottaglie brought down Carlo Nervo in the box and Giuseppe Signori made no mistake from 11 metres.

      Nervo almost put his side in front, striking the post with a ferocious left-footed drive from distance, while down the other end Gianluca Pagliuca got his gloves to Fabrizio Miccoli’s shot as the two teams entered half-time on level terms.

      After the break, the Bologna stopper was forced into a couple of smart saves, firstly from Edgar Davids’ deflected effort and then Enzo Maresca’s long-range volley.

      But in the 80th minute the visitors’ resistance finally crumbled when Gianluca Zambrotta, trying to latch onto an inspired back-heeled pass by Nedved, was felled in the penalty area and David Trezeguet rifled home the resulting spot-kick to hand the Bianconeri a fourth win in five fixtures at the start of the 2003-04 season.

      Juventus 4-1 Bologna, 2009

      The Bianconeri launched a marvellous second-half comeback to beat Bologna 4-1 at the Stadio Olimpico on 14 March 2009.

      In the 24th minute the visitors took the lead when Massimo Mutarelli collected a delightful through ball from ex-Juventus forward Marco Di Vaio before tucking past Gigi Buffon.

      The hosts responded to the early setback, creating a number of chances themselves, as Sebastian Giovinco forced Francesco Antonioli into a smart save before Alessandro Del Piero headed just wide of the post.

      Juventus took just four minutes of the second-half to find the equaliser when Hasan Salihamidzic nodded in from a corner.

      Buffon was at hand to keep his side level, blocking Di Vaio’s header, before Giovinco put the Bianconeri in front for the first time of the evening on 71 minutes.

      And Claudio Ranieri’s men immediately made the points safe as Alessandro Del Piero netted two from close-range in 12 minutes.

      Juventus 2-1 Bologna, 2012

      Paul Pogba grabbed a dramatic stoppage-time winner to secure all three points at Juventus Stadium on 31 October 2012.

      Emanuele Giaccherini tested Bologna keeper Federico Agliardi with a powerful shot from outside the box and Pogba hit the upright from even further out as the visitors rode their luck in the opening period.

      Nicklas Bendtner brought yet another save out of the Rossoblu stopper before Pogba nodded Andrea Pirlo’s free-kick whiskers wide of the same post he had hit earlier on.

      In the 54th minute the Bianconeri finally found the breakthrough when Pogba picked out Giaccherini with a raking cross and the winger teed up Fabio Quagliarella perfectly for a first-time volley.

      The striker would force Agliardi to parry another attempt on goal before Saphir Taider capitalised on Paolo De Ceglie’s error to send an accurate shot in off the upright to bring his side level on 71 minutes.

      But Pogba saved the day in the second minute of injury time, heading in Sebastian Giovinco’s accurate cross to send the home support into raptures.

      The win marked a remarkable ninth victory in ten games for Antonio Conte's men at the start of the 2012/13 campaign.
