      Champions of the highest order, capable of winning five straight Scudetti. In the decades to follow, this seemed to be a feat that no team could repeat.

       

      From 1930 to 1935, Juve were streets ahead of the rest as five consecutive Scudetto trophies made their way to Turin. This golden five-year period came to be known as the Quinquennio – a feat that very few ever thought could be achieved again. In fact, it took a whole 81 years to do so thanks to Juve’s history-making vintage of 2016.

      Under the watchful eye of manager Carlo Carcano, the Old Lady flourished with a host of undisputed champions such as Raimundo Orsi, Umberto Caligaris, Luigi Monti, Renato Cesarini, brothers Mario and Giovanni Varglien, Luigi Bertolini, Giovanni Ferrari and Felice Borel.

      These were players who also made a significant contribution to the national team, winning the World Cup in Rome in 1934.

      The 1930s saw the Bianconeri gain their first experience in a continental competition, as they qualified for the European Cup (now known as the Champions League). Although luck was not on Juve’s side, four semi-final appearances ensured that they were a constant fixture among the continent’s elite.
