The Bianconeri won the most recent Juventus v Atalanta fixture 3-0 on 16 December 2012, and there have in fact been four other notable previous encounters between the two sides that finished the same way.
Though not decided as quickly as that latest match (Mirko Vucinic, Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio’s goals all came within the first 30 minutes), the 1957/58 win stands out both for John Charles’ hat-trick and its significance in the race for the Bianconeri's first Scudetto lifted under Umberto Agnelli.
There was another hat-trick hero in the 1979 edition, and this time the man taking home the match ball was Pietro Paolo Virdis.
In 2002, ex-Nerazzurri player Alessio Tacchinardi opened the scoring, with David Trezeguet bagging a brace to secure the points.
The following year - the final game in our series - Marcello Lippi’s Juve were lifted to a two-goal lead by Alessandro Del Piero before Salvatore Fresi scored his one and only goal in the black and white stripes to seal the victory.
