    Ahead of Juve's trip to Bergamo, take a look back at how the Bianconeri have fared in their last three semi-final first legs

    The Bianconeri play in their fourth-straight Coppa Italia semi-final on Tuesday night in Bergamo facing Atalanta in the first leg. The first leg is always a tricky encounter whether at home or on the road as both teams jockey for the advantage heading into the second 90 minutes.

    The first legs have brought different results over the past three seasons, but one thing stood firm: the Bianconeri earning a ticket to Rome.

    Here's how the Bianconeri have fared in the semi-final first legs over the last three seasons: 

    5 March 2015 - Juventus 1 Fiorentina 2

    In one of the seven times at Allianz Stadium that Juventus have tasted defeat after 90 minutes, La Viola pulled off the shocker in the first leg. 

    Now the Premier League's second-leading scorer, Mohamed Salah put Fiorentina in front with a wonderful individual run in the 11th minute. Juventus pulled level in the 24th minute through Fernando Llorente while Salah would earn his brace in the 56th minute to send his team back to Florence with a 2-1 advantage. 

    Of course, Juve would turn it around in the second leg en route to winning Coppa Italia for the first time since 1995. 

    27 January 2016 - Juventus 3 Inter 0

    Another first leg at the Allianz Stadium, Juve came out flying with Alvaro Morata finishing a penalty in the 36th minute to put the Bianconeri up at the break. In the second half, it was Morata again with a fantastic spin and strike to double the Bianconeri lead. 

    Paulo Dybala slammed home a third for the Bianconeri minutes from full time with a goal that would prove vital as an Inter fight back in the second leg saw Juventus eventually win on penalty kicks. 

    28 February 2017 - Juventus 3 Napoli 1

    Jose Callejon managed to put the visitors in front before half-time but the Bianconeri roared back in the second half. 

    It wouldn't take long for Juventus to pull level as Dybala was taken down in the area and subsequently converted the penalty in the 47th minute to equalize.

    Then, a five-minute double salvo saw the Bianconeri take a two-goal lead into the second leg in Naples. Gonzalo Higuain found the back of the net from a tight angle against his former side and Dybala converted a second penalty in the 69th minute.
