Milan have travelled to Turin fourteen times as reigning champions in the post-war period. Here’s how the resulting games between the Bianconeri and the Rossoneri have panned out.
In 1952 Juventus brushed the champions aside with a solid 3-1 victory featuring goals from Vivolo, Boniperti and Praest. Swedish midfielder Gunnar Gren – who would go on to have a brief spell in the Bianconeri dugout – netted the visitors’ consolation.
Both sides played out a goalless stalemate in 1956, while a John Charles penalty was enough to seal victory two years later. That particular season saw Juventus sail to the top of the league, with Milan remaining 14 points behind, despite having won the title the previous season.Juventus enjoyed the upper hand in the following decade, winning two and losing one.
15 May 1960 was a particularly significant date as the Bianconeri mathematically guaranteed their eleventh title victory with a 3-1 win over Milan. Finding the target on that day were Sivori – who put the Bianconeri ahead before restoring the advantage after Altafini’s quick-fire response – and Boniperti, wrapping the game up in the closing stages.
Sivori again proved the difference between the two sides in 1962/63, while 1968/69 saw former Bianconeri midfielder Kurt Hamrin return to haunt his former employers by grabbing the winner.Moving on to 1980, where Juve put in a spirited second-half performance to overturn their visitors’ advantage.
De Vecchi’s strike gave Milan a lead they held up until the break, but Maldera’s own goal brought the sides on level terms before Bettega snatched the decider in a 2-1 victory. 1988 saw both teams cancel each other out in a nil-nil draw.
The encounters played out in the 90s saw Juventus come up against their former midfielder Fabio Capello, by now in charge of the Rossoneri. He steered his side to two consecutive narrow victories in 1993 and 1994, Simone popping up to settle the first, while Eranio sealed all three points the following year.
Marcello Lippi fought back against Milan’s supremacy, with Roberto Baggio’s header providing the catalyst for a fine run, culminating in the manager’s first title win with the Bianconeri. Two years later saw another goalless draw.Into the new millennium.
An own goal from Zidane put Zaccheroni’s Milan ahead in season 1999/00. However, Juve were only behind for two minutes as Conte headed past Abbiati to restore parity. Del Piero then teed up Inzaghi to put the Bianconeri ahead and Kovacevic added a third late on.
Finally, 18 December 2004: Juventus against Milan, Capello against Ancelotti. The appetising encounter failed to live up to its billing in terms of goalmouth action as both sides eventually had to settle for a point.
