In the last few years between the management of Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus have been able to count upon the goals of their strikers to decide the away encounters at Cagliari. Here are three prime examples of when the Juve hitmen have been decisive
Cagliari-Juve: The night of the striker
15 minutes until the end of the match, Cagliari still lead Juve by a goal to nil, however the situation is completely turned around by Juve's number 32, Alessandro Matri. His two goals, alongside Mirko Vucinic's effort see the Bianconeri win the game 3-1.
Similar to last season the hosts find themselves in front and Juve need to respond. Fernando Llorente duly evens the scores before Claudio Marchisio gives the Bianconeri the lead in the 73rd minute, with Llorente's second following just three minutes after. Stephan Lichtsteiner who teed up both of the Spaniard's goals got on the scoresheet himself to complete the rout.
Marchisio and Paulo Dybala both provide the assists for Gonzalo Higuain to score a brilliant double last season, and hand Juve a 2-0 win on the road to Scudetto number 35.
