The 4-0 Super Cup scoreline that Juventus achieved against Lazio is a result they have secured on three separate occasions in as many different stadia against the Biancocelesti, and as Antonio Conte’s men prepare to face them this Saturday they will be hoping that they can make it four.
The most recent game in which the 4-0 score featured was the Italian Super Cup encounter on 18 August at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, this time courtesy of goals from Paul Pogba, Giorgio Chiellini, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Carlos Tevez.
The first time that a match between the two ended up with this particular result was in 1932, when the Bianconeri ran out winners thanks to a Felice Borel II double in the first half and goals from Federico Munerati and Renato Cesarini in the second at the club’s old home at Corso Marsaglia.
Juve’s next 4-0 win was away at the Stadio Nazionale in Rome on 18 September 1948, the first game of the season. The Bianconeri could not have started the campaign better, scoring three in the opening 19 minutes with Vittorio Sentimenti III, Emilio Caprile and Giampiero Boniperti on the scoresheet initially. It was also the number nine who then put the finishing touch on the result, netting the goal that made it four.
The most recent before the Super Cup was at the Stadio Comunale, with 27 April 1875 the date of the encounter this time. Lazio had the Scudetto winners’ badge on their chest, but Juve would regain it a few days later.
José Altafini scored after 10 minutes, but it was the memorable closing stages that provided the highlight. Pietro Anastasi came on for Roberto Bettega and promptly went on to score a hat-trick in the space of five minutes.
Even better than that, though, in terms of quick-fire goals, were the three scored by Chiellini, Lichtsteiner and Tevez between the 52nd and 56th minute in the Super Cup, the Bianconeri’s most recent 4-0 triumph.
