      Juventus.com presents a shortlist of five special Serie A strikes against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico

      Ninety-nine Bianconeri goals in the league away to Lazio. Indeed, the Stadio Olimpico has been a happy hunting ground for the Old Lady over the years.

      Spoilt for choice in terms of the most stunning strike of all, Juventus.com has compiled a competitive shortlist with five classy contenders.

      Sit back and enjoy!

      1. DEL PIERO, 1994

      Proof if ever one needed it that you should never give up on what might seem like a lost cause! Alessandro Del Piero’s sliding finish in December 1994 in many ways tells an important moral story as well as top-lining this sumptuous selection of goals.

      As if that wasn’t enough, Alex’s strike even pulled the Bianconeri back on level terms in a game the visitors would eventually win 4-3. Quite simply, thrilling.

      2. PEPE, 2011

      When lightning strikes twice, you often sit up and notice, and that’s exactly the case with Simone Pepe’s clinical, one-touch finish against Lazio in November 2011.

      The versatile forward, often deployed on the wing by Antonio Conte, had also been the hero with the only goal of the game against the Biancocelesti six months prior.

      And yes, you’ve guessed it, he even added a third in consecutive league games the following April just for good measure!

      3. LLORENTE, 2014

      A header so precise and elegant that a slow-motion replay may have done it more justice, but the fact that a GIF alone is already very pleasing on the eye is testament to its sheer beauty.

      Fernando Llorente certainly stood up when it mattered most in January 2014, nodding home the equaliser and earning 10-man Juve an all-important point in their surge to the third of their five straight Scudetto triumphs.

      4. TEVEZ, 2014

      Lazio finished in an impressive third place two seasons ago, but that didn’t stop Juventus from putting three past their Roman hosts in November 2014.

      And the law of averages would suggest that when Juve found the net quite so often over the course of the 2014-15 campaign, their top-scorer that term Carlos Tevez would inevitably be in on the act.

      No faulting the finish from the Apache!

      5. DYBALA, 2015

      Right foot, left knee, left foot and you know that there’s only one place where the ball is going when Paulo Dybala is the man responsible.

      La Joya’s delicious volley in December 2015 not only lit up the Old Lady’s last league game away to Lazio, but it put the Bianconeri 2-0 to the good and in full command of all three points – an early Christmas present and undoubtedly one of the better ones going for fans of the boys in black and white.
