23 August 1997, Stadio delle Alpi, Juventus 3-0 Vicenza.
After struggling to break down the stubborn rearguard of Guidolin’s Vicenza side, the Bianconeri found their stride early in the second period by netting twice in quick succession after the interval. Summer arrival Inzaghi found the initial breakthrough when he grabbed a typical poacher’s goal by pouncing on Brivio’s half-save. The frontman then doubled his personal tally just moments later as he prodded home at the back post from Conte’s pinpoint cross on the turn. The result was then put beyond doubt when Conte himself added his name to the scoresheet 15 minutes from time with a stunning first-time strike into the bottom corner from 25 yards out.
