      A look at the Bianconeri's sequence of victories against Roma at Allianz Stadium

      In the era of Giampiero Boniperti, Omar Sivori and John Charles the highest number of consecutive victories at home against Roma stood at eight. The current record that started at Allianz Stadium isn't far behind. In fact, should the Bianconeri triumph on Saturday that record would be equalled. Here's a look back at how it started in 2012.

      2011/12: THE FIRST 4-0 AT ALLIANZ

      Juventus set their biggest scoreline at the time with a thumping 4-0 over Roma on 22 April 2012. The Bianconeri raced into a 3-0 lead after just 30 minutes of play, after a double from Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo. Claudio Marchisio netted in the second half to round off the scoring.

      2012/13: ANOTHER FOUR GOALS

      Again, an unstoppable Juve in September 2012, a fast-paced start to the game saw Juve go 3-0 up after just 20 minutes this time, through Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal from the penalty spot and Alessandro Matri. A Dani Osvaldo penalty pulled a goal back for Roma in the second half, but Sebastian Giovinco added to the score to end the game at 4-1.

      2013/14: A CONVINCING WIN

      Juve-Roma once more is a high-scoring game for the Bianconeri, who win 3-0, with goals from Vidal after 17 minutes, added to by Leonardo Bonucci at 48-minute mark and then wrapped up by a penalty from Mirko Vucinic.

      2014/15: A THRILLING FINALE

      Certainly, one of the most thrilling Juve-Roma games in recent years the most balanced of the matches played against Roma at the Allianz Stadium. Juventus went ahead in the game from a Carlos Tevez penalty, before Francesco Totti netted from the spot at the other end, and then Juan Iturbe swung the tie around to put the visitors in front. However, that wasn't to be the end of the first half drama, with Tevez scoring from 12 yards once more to tie that game at 2-2 going into the break.

      The second period is an intense battle with the match winner coming late on 86 minutes, as Bonucci volleyed home from a corner to end the game at 3-2! 

      2015/16: DYBALA'S DECIDER

      Just the one well-taken goal in this game for the Bianconeri. A break from Paul Pogba in midfield, saw him release Paulo Dybala with an incisive through-ball into the box, with La Joya keeping his composure to slot low into the back of the net and win the match 1-0 for Juventus.

      2016/17: GREAT GOAL FROM PIPA

      Gonzalo Higuain decided this Juve-Roma tie in the first half on a December evening in 2016, with a stunning strike as Pipita collected the ball outside the box, riding a challenge from Roma's Daniele De Rossi, before slaloming past the Giallorossi defence and then hitting a rocket into the Roma net to win the game 1-0 with an early 14th minute goal.

      2017/18: BENATIA'S DECIDER

      In 2017 and this year in 2018, Juve and Roma meet almost exactly one year later, with both ties coming just before Christmas. Last year's big match took place on 23 December, with Juventus winning with Roma's ex, Medhi Benatia reacting quickest from an 18th minute corner to win the game 1-0.
