The third episode of "Next Gen On The Road", the Juventus.com column dedicated to the professional adventures of the Juventus Next Gen lads around Italy and in Europe, is dedicated to Gianluca Frabotta and Alessandro Di Pardo.

Two stories, those of Gianluca and Alessandro, united by their experience in the Under 23, today Next Gen, but also by their debut in the top flight, in the same season, 2020/21.

Not only that, but the two Bianconeri boys also boast an identical trophy cabinet: namely two Coppa Italias (one from Serie C) and an Italian Super Cup and there is also a very recent trend, which unites them, which we will now discover:


A great match on Friday for Gianluca, a star performer in Frosinone's comeback win over Venezia at the Stadio Penzo. A victory that bears his signature, not so much on the scoresheet, as in that of the assists, in which Frabotta got two, out of the three overall goals that ensured the victory for the Frosinone, after the home side's initial advantage.

Frabotta arrived at Juventus in 2019 and went straight into Serie C with the Under 23s, lifting the Serie C Coppa Italia and then the following year he totaled 16 appearances in Serie A with the First Team, making his debut in the very first game of the season against Sampdoria.

Before Frosinone, Frabotta found himself at Hellas Verona and spent this pre-season only at Lecce, after which he transferred to Frosinone where he linked up with another old Juventus acquaintance, Fabio Grosso, where he is also making a name for himself.


Alessandro's first experiences in Bianconero date back to 2017, coming from the SPAL Primavera, where he played an excellent championship. From the following season the doors of the Under 23 team opened for him in which he played for three seasons, where he is still a record holder with 75 appearances, and with which, together with Frabotta, he lifted the Coppa Italia in 2020.

In the 2020/2021 season, in addition to continuing his adventure in Serie C, the doors of the First Team then also opened for him, with his debut in January 2021 coming in the Coppa Italia and then a month later in Serie A.

Di Pardo went on two previous loans, before joining Cagliari in Serie B, at Vicenza and then Cosenza.

On Saturday, on the last matchday, Alessandro displayed a convincing performance, both in defence and attack, where he not only defended with intelligence but also delivered the low cross that earned the winning goal in a 2-1 win, with which the islanders beat Brescia at home.
