Following a disappointing third-place finish the previous season, Carver was replaced in the dugout by Hungarian Giorgy Sarosi. However, the core of the squad remained the same.
Juve recovered from an indifferent performance in the first outing of the campaign by embarking on a seven-match winning streak in which they scored 28 goals. After a poor run of form in November and early December, the Bianconeri began their victory charge. Sarosi’s men chalked up 16 wins in their next 19 encounters, including a crushing 6-0 success in the ‘Derby della Mole’ and a 3-1 triumph over closest rivals Milan at the Stadio Comunale in early May which helped Juventus establish a substantial buffer zone at the top of the table. In the end, the Scudetto trophy was won at a canter, with three fixtures still remaining.
Three of the Bianconeri players were among the top eight goalscorers in the league. Danish striker Hansen was top of the tree with 30 to his name, Boniperti followed for Juve on 19, while Muccinelli chalked up 17 strikes. Juve ended on 60 points, seven clear of Milan, 11 ahead of Inter and seventeen in front of Fiorentina and Lazio.
