      Ahead of Friday's match against Milan, Juventus.com looks back at five men to have made their mark in one of Italian football's biggest fixtures
      Giampiero Boniperti

      As chance would have it, Juventus vs Milan was Giampiero Boniperti’s first ever match for the Bianconeri back on 2 March 1947.

      Although the quick-heeled, predatory striker didn’t find the net that day in a disappointing 2-1 defeat, he would not have to wait long to open his account against the Rossoneri. In May of the following year, his first full season in the black and white, Giampiero struck in the 56th minute to help them secure a 2-1 scoreline this time in the Turin club’s favour.

      It was not just all goals and glory for Boniperti, however. He would have to endure a four-year long barren run in the fixture, during which the Bianconeri suffered a 7-1 home loss in the process.

      Just like the Old Lady, Giampiero showed he was made of sterner stuff and duly revived his form against Milan, scoring in a crucial 3-1 victory en route to the the 1952 Scudetto title.

      Boniperti wraps up a 3-1 win over Milan on 15 May 1960.

      He never looked back from there, filling his boots with a flurry of goals towards the end of his career to become the club’s joint-top scorer alongside Felice Borel in arguably the most high-profile fixture in Italian football with nine strikes to his name.

      Alessandro Del Piero

      As with a number of other fixtures in the calendar, the history of Juventus vs Milan would have been very different had Alessandro Del Piero not been involved.

      Juve’s iconic former number 10 scored seven times in 25 Serie A matches against the Rossoneri, including his first ever outing at the San Siro in October 1995.

      Ever deadly from set pieces, Alex stole the show at the Stadio Delle Alpi in March 1998, his first-half penalty and ferocious free-kick from range helping Marcello Lippi’s men to a 4-1 success.

      Del Piero was reliability personified when it came to taking spot-kicks and no less so than against Milan, netting from 11 metres out also in December 2001 and 2008.

      He also left his fair share of precious parting shots from open play, not least the eventual match winner at the San Siro in 2010.

      Gianluigi Buffon

      The first name on Juventus’ teamsheet, but the last one Milan players and supporters want to see!

      In the modern era (from the 1993/94 season onwards), no player from either team has emerged victorious more times in this fixture than Gianluigi Buffon whose 12 triumphs comfortably trump those of Milan’s frontrunner Gennaro Gattuso (seven).

      Mauro Camoranesi

      Mauro Camoranesi will always have a place in Juventus fans’ hearts for his unrelenting workrate down the wings and his unerring affection towards the Bianconeri colours.

      Camoranesi combined this determination with class and creativity, no less so than against Milan. His three assists in the fixture are more than any other Juve player since the 2004/05 season – proof not only of his selflessness, but an eagle eye for a pinpoint through pass.

      Just look how he carved open the Rossoneri backline in April 2008 to set up Del Piero:

      Claudio Marchisio

      If you were to create a Claudio Marchisio highlights reel with Juventus, flicking through the countless moments worthy of celebration, you’d be sure to sit back, enjoy and include his two strikes against Milan in October 2011, his first ever brace for the Bianconeri as well as his beloved club’s maiden victory over their historic rivals at Juventus Stadium.

      Deployed further forward in his former years, the Little Prince played a sublime one-two with Mirko Vucinic to get in behind the Rossoneri’s backline for the opener that day. 

      And he then went on to beat Christian Abbiati with a powerful drive from distance for his second of the evening.

      For Marchisio and Juve, this would be the first of five straight home wins in the league against Milan, meaning that Claudio has been involved in as many as 10 Serie A triumphs over Friday’s opponents – only two fewer than the fixture’s main match-winner Buffon.
