      As the Bianconeri prepare to take on Fiorentina this weekend, Juventus.com looks back at a quintet of memorable away wins at the Stadio Artemio Franchi
      Fiorentina 1-3 Juventus, 10 April 1977

      Juventus approached Matchday 24 of the 30-game long 1976-77 season needing a victory to maintain their one point lead over second-placed Torino.

      Fiorentina, in third, were enjoying a strong campaign themselves and they managed to keep the high-scoring Bianconeri at bay until the break.

      Then after half-time, the visitors struck three times inside 18 minutes, Roberto Boninsegna poking in off the post, before Romeo Benetti hammered home this unstoppable drive just moments later:

      Roberto Bettega’s close-range finish put the win beyond all doubt with the Tuscans responding just once (through Gianfranco Casarsa) from the penalty spot four minutes from time.

      The Bianconeri would follow up the victory with a further five, drawing just once in the process, which would prove enough to pip their inter-city rivals Torino to the title by a solitary point.

      Fiorentina 1-4 Juventus, 29 April 1995

      Juventus were closing in on their 23rd Scudetto title when they made the trip to Florence in late April and once again put in a performance thoroughly befitting of their league position and lofty aspirations at the Stadio Artemio Franchi as they had done in a similar position 18 years previously.

      Gianluca Vialli gave the visitors a seventh-minute lead when he turned in Fabrizio Ravanelli’s searching cross from the right:

      After the break, the Bianconeri would have goalkeeper Michelangelo Rampulla to thank for maintaining their lead after he saved Gabriel Batistuta’s penalty.

      Down the other end, meanwhile, Roberto Baggio kept his cool to convert from the spot against his former club and double Juve’s advantage.

      Batistuta pulled one goal back with a powerful header on 70 minutes, but two strikes late on from Ravanelli and Giancarlo Marocchi made sure of the spoils and another crucial three points in the Old Lady’s ultimately successful title charge. 

      Fiorentina 1-3 Juventus, 11 May 2001

      Juventus’ win over Fiorentina in May 2001 was largely made in France thanks to the opening and closing strikes by Zinedine Zidane and David Trezeguet respectively.

      Midfielder Zidane was wreaking havoc among the hosts’ ranks throughout the evening and he made sure to get his name on the scoresheet by turning in Trezeguet’s knockdown from Alessandro Birindelli’s cross.

      Igor Tudor doubled the visitors lead with his fifth goal of the campaign, but Marco Rossi nodded home down the other end to reduce the hosts’ deficit minutes before the break.

      The second half would see the Bianconeri knock on the Viola door several times and they eventually made their pressure pay off in the 89th minute, when Trezeguet guided Fabian O’Neill’s free-kick with pinpoint precision past Francesco Toldo to wrap up the win.

      Fiorentina 1-2 Juventus, 6 March 2010

      The Bianconeri’s 19th and penultimate Serie A triumph in Florence could not have begun in better fashion. In only the second minute, Antonio Candreva’s deft through ball found the onrushing Diego, who rounded keeper Sebastien Frey and slotted home the opener.

      Former Juventus midfielder Marco Marchionni would pull one back for the hosts just after the half-hour mark, but the Tuscans ultimately came unstuck in the 68th minute when Mohamed Sissoko played Fabio Grosso down the left side of the penalty area and the full-back rifled home brilliantly from the most acute of angles to secure a hard-fought victory. 

      Fiorentina 0-5 Juventus, 17 March 2012

      Juventus’ 5-0 win over the Viola represents the largest ever margin of victory for the away team in this fixture.

      Mirko Vucinic’s sublime strike on the quarter-hour mark set Antonio Conte’s side on their way:

      Soon after taking the lead, Fiorentina forward Alessio Cerci received his marching orders for an off-the-ball foul and the Bianconeri would fully exploit their numerical advantage, Arturo Vidal’s no-nonsense drive making it 2-0 at the break.

      In the second half, the visitors continued to put Delio Rossi’s ten men to the sword, as Claudio Marchisio’s header on the run, Andrea Pirlo’s delightful dink and Simone Padoin’s close-range finish from Pirlo’s lofted through ball ensured that Juve sealed an all-important win along their route to a famous 30th Scudetto crown.
