Del Piero one away from 700

Alessandro Del Piero will make his 700th appearance for Juventus should he feature in Wednesday’s game against Lazio.

The veteran, three goals in 22 matches for the Old Lady this term, is on the verge of another club record.

No player has ever reached the 700 game mark for La Signora given that Del Piero is already well clear of Gaetano Scirea’s 552 and Beppe Furino’s 528.

Del Piero, who has grabbed 287 goals in the club’s colours, has racked up appearances in 11 different competitions.

Of his 699 games so far, 473 have come in Serie A, 35 in Serie B, 55 in the Coppa Italia, six in the Italian Super Cup, 89 in the European Cup, three in Champions League preliminaries, 28 in the UEFA Cup, four in Europa League preliminaries, three in the Intertoto, two in the European Super Cup and one in the Intercontinental Cup.
