      Five of the best away derby victories, starting all the way back in 1934/35

      Back in the days of the Stadio Comunale and the Stadio Delle Alpi, an 'away' derby was only away on paper, with the stadium split equally between the two sets of fans. That has changed of course since the clubs began playing at separate grounds and nowadays an away derby feels decidedly different to one played at home.

      Here are five of the best Bianconeri wins in Torino v Juventus fixtures.

      1. 1934/35: 1-3

      This was the second derby in a very special season – the year Juve completed the Quinquennio d'oro with a fifth straight league title. Not that it was a foregone conclusion going into the derby, as Torino sat joint top with Fiorentina. 

      But while the Viola were held to a 0-0 draw at Palermo, the Bianconeri saw off their city rivals with a late flurry of goals - three in the final 15 minutes by Felice Borel, Luis Monti and Raimundo Orsi, with Mario Bo netting a consolation for the Granata.

      2. 1968/69: 1-2

      Having recently been crowned European champion with Italy – netting a goal in the final against Yugoslavia – Pietro Anastasi was very much the man of the moment. And following a big-money move to Juventus, he soon became a Bianconeri idol at the Stadio Comunale – helped no little by scoring a late derby winner.

      After goals by Giampaolo Menichelli and Nestor Combin had cancelled each other out either side of the break, with just two minutes left on the clock Anastasi's 25-yard effort flew past Lido Vieri into the net, right in front of the Curva Filadelfia, where the Juve fans were based.

      3. 1973/74: 0-1

      The derby rivalry was probably never felt more intensely than it was in the '70s. The reason was partly that both clubs boasted very competitive teams at the time and partly because Torino had a core group of players who had come through their ranks, meaning they had grown up on derbies.

      In 1973/74, the first Derby della Mole was an opportunity for the Bianconeri to reclaim the local bragging rights after they had lost both meetings in the previous campaign. They did just that, with a solitary strike by Antonello Cuccureddu settling the matter.

      4. 2007/08: 0-1

      All derby victories feel special but nothing tastes sweeter than winning one in the final minutes. In 2007/08 the two sides were locked together in a stalemate that had lasted 90 minutes, with chances few and far between.

      Then, in the third minute of stoppage time, a mix-up in the Torino defence was exploited by David Trezeguet – a man who doesn't need asking twice. Matteo Sereni could do nothing to stop the France striker's volley. And once again, the celebrations were all the more raucous as the goal came down the Juve end.

      5.2015/16: 1-3

      The first derby of 2016/17 got off to a bad start for Juve as Andrea Belotti headed Toro in front after a quarter of an hour. It didn't last long though, as 12 minutes later Gonzalo Higuain was on hand to level the scores. 

      1-1 it remained at the interval and for most of the second half, until El Pipita struck again eight minutes from time courtesy of Giorgio Chiellini's assist. Miralem Pjanic then put the game to bed in added time as he fired a third past Joe Hart. An impressive display of strength by the Bianconeri as they marched towards a sixth consecutive Scudetto.
