The matches at home to Fiorentina have revealed only one possible outcome in the league. Even as the challenge has proven difficult with each year, the Bianconeri have always found a way to demonstrate their absolute superiority.
Juve-Fiorentina: the history at the Stadium
The first Juventus-Fiorentina match played in our new home was one of the most beautiful 45 minutes played by Conte’s Juventus. There’s only one downside: we headed into the break 1-0 courtesy of a Bonucci strike, despite having fired eight efforts on goal. After the break, the visitors drew level through Jovetic, but Juventus returned to leading the result seven minutes later thanks to Matri, who converted from an action created by Pepe.
In Conte’s second year, another display of strength was on show, even with Juventus’ backline being in a state of emergency with Barzagli, Marrone and Peluso taking to the field. Everything happened in the first half. Vucinic opened the scoring with an effort that beat Viviano. Matri then doubled the lead, with an effort that saw him lose his boot in the process.
Asamoah decided the encounter, which was in its third year at Allianz Stadium. It was one of his best goals in the black and white jersey, put together by a back-heel and a shot from outside the area that surprised future Juventus goalkeeper: Norberto Neto.
This encounter was during Allegri's first year in charge, and it was a complicated game. The Viola went ahead after a penalty converted by Gonzalo Rodriguez. But after the break, the Bianconeri made a comeback through two headed goals: the first by Llorente, the second, Tevez. Carlitos struck again in the second half, taking advantage of a Marchisio hit. A minute from the end, Ilicic punished the visitors with a second goal, but the result stayed the same at 3-2.
The script is similar to the previous year in 2015/16. Viola went ahead with a penalty, but Juve equalised immediately afterward with a header from Cuadrado. In the last quarter of an hour, the decisive one-two took place. Mandzukic and Dybala found the back of the net, to allow the team to gain their sixth consecutive victory, which would lead to the Scudetto.
The challenge against Fiorentina is the league opener in what would land up being the season of the sixth consecutive Scudetto. The first goal of the tournament is scored by Khedira, who connected onto the end of a Chiellini cross with a powerful header. In the 25th minute of the second half, Kakinic equalised. Five minutes later, Higuain took over from Mandzukic to find his way on goal.
The most recent victory was secured in the second half. The decisive goal stemmed from a Cuadrado cross and a diving header from Mandzukic, who perfectly struck the ball to beat Tatarasanu. Juve had several opportunities to increase the score. However, the 1-0 was enough to reach the fifth victory in a row since the commencement of the league.
