      With Atalanta next up at the Stadium this Saturday, Juventus.com recalls five classic encounters at home to the Nerazzurri
      13/05/2012: Juventus 3-1 Atalanta

      One week after the Bianconeri had secured a first Scudetto in six years after a ding-dong duel at the top of the table with Milan, they had the opportunity to parade the trophy in front of their fans at Juventus Stadium for the final game of the season.

      Before the title celebrations could begin in earnest, they of course had 90 minutes of football to honour against Atalanta and honour them they did with a superlative display and comfortable 3-1 scoreline under the sun.

      Luca Marrone got the party started in the 10th minute with a super strike in off the post before Alessandro Del Piero capped off his final ever appearance Juve appearance with a typically well-placed finish into the bottom corner.

      Stephan Lichtsteiner’s unfortunate own goal would provide but the faintest of blotches on an otherwise perfect afternoon, which even saw Andrea Barzagli stroke home a penalty in injury time – the final goal of an unforgettable first season at Juventus Stadium.

      Three goals inside the first 27 minutes effectively killed off Atalanta’s second visit to the Stadium as a contest almost before it had begun.

      Mirko Vucinic, Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio were the men on target that afternoon, helping pace-setters Juve hit the 41-point mark and go seven clear of second-placed Inter in the process.

      Juve were making a habit of celebrating Scudetto wins at home to Atalanta, as they made their third straight title triumph mathematically certain against the Nerazzurri with two league games still to play.

      In stark contrast to their previous two visits, Atalanta put up a firm fight on the evening and kept the scores level all the way up until the 72nd minute, when Simone Padoin’s crisp finish from the edge of the area nestled in the corner for a hard-earned three points and record-breaking 31st victory in a single Serie A season.

      Atalanta’s fourth visit to Juventus Stadium will be remembered, just like many a game at the iconic ground, for a moment of magic from Andrea Pirlo - the perfect way to start the weekend.

      Having punished the Nerazzurri with an exquisite free-kick just over two years prior, Juve’s midfield maestro did the damage once more the time with a nonchalant swing of his right peg from all of 30 yards out to send the ball flying past helpless stopper Marco Sportiello.

      Stefano Colantuono’s men had taken the lead for the first and only time so far in their outings at the Stadium courtesy of Giulio Migliaccio’s 25th-minute header before Fernando Llorente turned home from point-blank range, and Pirlo’s pearler just six minutes later completed the comeback on the stroke of half-time.

      Juve’s most recent meetings with Atalanta may not have been one of the most memorable wins during their fifth straight Scudetto-winning season, but it was certainly an important one as only their second home victory so far in 2015/16.

      Paulo Dybala set the Bianconeri on their way with one of his trademark, unstoppable strikes with his left foot, La Joya’s fifth goal in what would soon prove to be a hugely fruitful first campaign in Turin.

      Then after the interval, Mario Mandzukic joined in on the act, tucking home Dybala’s cross from virtually under the crossbar.

      Three very handy points indeed in the hunt to make history.
