    The month of November saw Juventus celebrate their 120th anniversary, with four matches played against Benevento, Sampdoria, Barcelona and Crotone

    Juventus kicked off the month with a celebration of the 120th birthday of the club on 1 November:

    To mark the occasion on social media, every hour, the club’s profile picture on Twitter and Facebook was updated, starting off with the very first logo adopted in 1897 right through to the club's current visual identity.

    Fans were also asked name their all-time Bianconeri XI, spanning the club's 120-year history and here were the final results:

    In addition, fans were also asked to select the best-ever goal in the history of La Vecchia Signora, and it was no surprise to see Alessandro Del Piero's stunner against Fiorentina in 1994 come out on top:

    With Twitter's change to 240 characters coinciding with 120 years of Juventus, the Bianconeri decided to get involved:

    For the Old Lady's first competitive action of November against newly promoted Benevento, the club played in special commemorative #Juve120 kits to mark occasion:

    Despite Juve trailing the game 0-1 at half-time, two goals in eight second half minutes from Gonzalo Higuain and Juan Cuadrado to turn the game around 2-1 in their favour.

    After a 3-2 reverse away at Sampdoria, with Juve registering two late goals through Dybala and Higuain, the Old Lady had a Champions League re-match against Barcelona in Turin to contend with. 

    Despite a 0-0 draw, there was plenty of mutual respect afterwards between the two sides, who would both make it through to the Last 16.

    From Barcelona, Juve closed out the month at home to Crotone. A goalless first half saw  the Bianconeri take the lead in the second through Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic:

    A stunning first-ever career goal by Mattia De Sciglio put the Old Lady two goals to the good:

    Before Medhi Benatia wrapped things up as Juve went on to win 3-0:

    The game also marked Benedikt Howedes' first outing in a Juve shirt:

    Benatia would go on to win November's MVP of the Month, whilst De Sciglio's netbuster against Crotone won the Goal of the Month:
