The first Lecce-Juventus fixture played in the league is an unforgettable one: the Bianconeri's victory for 3-2 on the final day of 1985-86 season led to the conquest of Scudetto number 22, and it also brought to a close the first cycle of the Trapattonian era, with its sixth title in a decade. Since then, there have been other important matches and goals that deserve to be remembered.
Lecce-Juve: three great goals
14 November 2004, Matchday 12: Lecce-Juventus was played in the rain and on a very problematic field. Difficult to stand on, in this scenario, and even more difficult to perform quality plays. But the champions also managed to succeed in the impossible and among the Bianconeri on the field is Alessandro Del Piero. The No.10 was in the penalty area, and managed to slip the ball under the crossbar. It's a goal that was worth three points and that strengthened the advantage at the top of the league table.
In Lecce it is never easy to win three points. The 2008-09 fixture confirmed this. Juve, led by Claudio Ranieri on the bench, went into the break at 0-0. In the second half, Sebastian Giovinco took the lead after winning a free-kick and transforming it with a perfect trajectory. But it is not enough: seven minutes from the end, Cacia found a way to beat Manninger and put the scoreline level. The decisive play arrived at the last minute: De Ceglie crossed from the right and the Brazilian Amauri went and nodded home a perfect header with seconds to spare.
The last Lecce-Juve played in the league season was back when the first of the eight Scudetti was one. It is the first match of the New Year (2012), were the Bianconeri arrived in Puglia after a winter tour in Saudi Arabia, and in the wake of a league performance that saw them contend head-to-head with Milan. The Salento team, at the time, were last in the standings, but against Juve they will be protagonists of a good performance. The three points were secured thanks to Alessandro Matri.
