The Italian top flight has a habit of making a habit out of producing goalscoring strikes, and the first time a team made history in this way was in 2012, when Juventus scored four against Roma.
Juventus won the match, 3-2, in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.
This season’s first goal was scored by Antonio Cassano, who scored for the first and only time in his career, and it came in the second leg of their last-16 tie at Udinese.
Now, in a season full of exciting new arrivals, the Bianconeri are hoping to make history again, and they are in good shape to do so.
In the second half of this season, Juventus have been the best team in the league with 13 wins and seven draws, and will look to keep the pace up against the league leaders.
Cassano is one of the best goalscorers in Serie B, and with him in goal, they will need all the scoring they can get.
The Italian side have scored 14 goals in the last six games, including two in the same match, and have scored over 20 goals in three of their past five matches.
If they are able to keep up their scoring rate, Juventus could potentially be crowned champions of the league.
“They have to keep scoring goals and that’s what they’re going to have to do, to win,” Bianconero coach Paulo Dybala said.
And that is exactly what they did against Roma, scoring six in the final eight minutes of the game to lift the league title.
That will be the fourth time in Serie D history that Juventus have won the league, and their goalkeeping dominance is undeniable.
With two clean sheets in five games, they have taken advantage of Roma’s tendency to play in a 4-4-2 formation, which can give them the ball at a moment’s notice.
However, the defence of the Biancocelesti has been under constant pressure, and there are doubts over whether their new signing Alessandro Florenzi will be able to cope with that.
“[I hope] he can do well,” Dybalsa said.
“He’s the best goalkeeper in the world and it will be very important to see how he responds in training.”
If Juventus can maintain their high level of play and score a few goals, the future looks bright for the Bianciollini.
Juventus are currently third in Serie C with 11 points from six games and are four points behind the leaders, Sampdoria, who also finished second last season.
