      A new objective: a third consecutive victory at San Paolo

      On Sunday, January 26, 2020 at San Paolo, the Old Lady will have the opportunity not only to strengthen their lead at the top of the standings by conquering three points, but to reach a new goal, never achieved before: a third consecutive victory in Naples.

      So far, in different periods, the victories have not gone beyond two games in a row. It's an event that has occurred in different eras: 1935-1937, 1966-1968, 1976-1978 and on three more occasions in more recent times that deserve further study. 

      1991-1993

      Juventus was coached by Giovanni Trapattoni and during his time at the club, the San Paolo became a land of conquest in two very different games. In the first appointment, it was a goal by De Agostini that determined the victory over the home team, which was coached by Claudio Ranieri.

      The following year, with the same protagonists on the bench, saw a decidedly richer game of goals: the Bianconeri win 1-3 thanks to the goals of Baggio, Moeller and Vialli (an unusual free-kick for Gianluca). In the closing minutes, Napoli gets back into the game with a one-two from Fonseca and Zola.

      In 1994, the possible three victories in a row did not arrive because the two teams played out to a 0-0 draw. 

      1994-1996

      Juve were in the hands of Marcello Lippi, who arrived in Turin after a good experience in Naples. The return to San Paolo of their former coach was greeted with great affection. In 1994-95, Juve claimed a 0-2 win: the first goal came through Radanelli header, while Del Piero scored in the the second half to secure the victory. The following year Ravanelli claimed the match-winner, but, once again, the possible third win in a row was denied by another 0-0.

       

       

      2017-2019

      It's the most recent Juventus brace: they were two very important victories for the fate of the championship by the time they arrived. The first was decided by a lethal counterattack orchestrated by Douglas Costa and Dybala, which was finished by Higuain, the great ex of the fixture. They were three points that allowed Juve to shorten the gap in the standings over their opponents. The second triumph took place in the second round: Allegri's Juve got the better of Ancelotti's Napoli thanks to a free-kick by Pjanic and a header by Emre Can. Callejon shortened the distance, while in the final minutes, Insigne missed a penalty.
