|See the guy reaching towards the Cup? Yes, it’s Conte! He wants to do it as a coach also!|
Today’s date, May 22, represents a host of great Juventus triumphs, with three important successes from the past 35 yards celebrated on this day.
We begin by recalling the Bianconeri’s Scudetto victory in 1977. Four days after lifting the UEFA Cup in Bilbao, the club celebrated title number seventeen by seeing off Sampdoria through goals from Bettega and Boninsegna.
Nineteen years later, Ajax were overcome in a thrilling Champions League final contested at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Lippi’s men beat the Dutch side on penalties after the score remained locked at 1-1 after 120 minutes.
In 2005, the Bianconeri signed off their season by enjoying their 28th Scudetto success in Livorno. Goals from Trezeguet and Nedved handed the visitors a 2-2 draw, with the title having already been confirmed two days previously following Milan’s slip up.
