There have been more than a few matches against il Toro that have seen players leave their mark in this historical game by scoring score two goals.
Juve-Toro: Derby braces
"I am happy because some goals give a particular joy.” That brace by Gaetano Scirea in the derby on 7 March 1982 made for a really a special Sunday. Because even if he was a ‘libero’ with a license to score, his brace was worth more than any other, for the context and the moment in which they were scored. Juve were down by two goals after 22 minutes. Marco Tardelli reduced the gap, then it was time for the number 6 to score his two goals. And so, the Bianconeri went into the break ahead. After the interval, the result was finally wrapped up in the second half by Liam Brady.
Even Michel Platini managed to overturn the fate of a derby. He did it two years after Gaetano Scirea, by responding to the goal scored by Selvaggi that allowed for the Granata to go into the break leading from the 10th minute. Platini’s two goals were masterpieces: the first off the head, the second, a millimetric free-kick that passed over the head of Torino’s defender Galbiati, who was placed on the goal line.
Antonio Conte’s first goals in the league with Juventus took place in the derby, where he handed Juventus the lead and put them in front. The 2-1 result revealed the midfielder's ability to showcase his warrior temperament, that in the matches against Torino even as a coach, saw him also claim four wins in as many games.
It’s a derby that he featured in on many occasions during his youth. But that of 1 December 2012 represented the climax of the Bianconeri development, who saw one of their own leave his mark on the Derby della Mole. The protagonist is Claudio Marchisio, author of the first and third goals in the game; the first was a diving header and the other a left-footed shot. Scoring the second goal was another Juventus product, Sebastian Giovinco.
The last derby played at the Allianz Stadium has no history. Juve dominated from start to finish and Paulo Dybala opened and closed the match. The 1-0 is the sum of well-thought-out pressing by Pjanic and Matuidi: the Bianconeri No.10 took advantage of the recovery of his teammates and struck the ball from outside the box. In extra time, the Argentine repeated his exploits through an assist by Higuain and a delicious ‘cucchiaio’ that he lobbed over Sirigu.
