Scudetto 1959-60

      Following a disappointing fourth place finish the season before, Juventus returned to winning ways when Renato Cesarini took over the managerial reins. Sivori in particular experienced a blip in form, but then rediscovered his best and succeeded in guiding his side to an 11th Scudetto title.

      The Bianconeri made an imperious start to the campaign, scoring 25 goals in the first seven matches and achieving six victories in the process. Juve then experienced a slight downturn in form but soon recovered and embarked on an eight-game winning streak. A thoroughly deserved league trophy was then secured via a commanding final run-in of nine wins in 11 games.

      The success of Cesarini’s side was largely down to the potency of lethal strike duo Sivori and Charles, who chalked up 50 goals between them. In fact, Sivori was the league’s leading goalscorer with 28 to his name. However, it was a season of heartbreak for Fiorentina as they finished eight points off the pace and were forced to settle for a fourth runner-up medal in as many years.
