Chiellini to break Bettega record

One week on from winning his 100th Italy cap, Giorgio Chiellini will break Roberto Bettega’s appearance record for Juventus if he plays against Spal.

The centre-back reached his century for the Azzurri against Portugal, only the seventh player to reach that milestone.

His next game for the Bianconeri will be his 483rd, which will put him fifth on the all-time list.

Chiellini is currently tied with Roberto Bettega, but will move clear of him if he plays against Spal at the weekend.

Clash of the titans

It may not be the most passionate game in Italy but, as Daryl Hammond explains, Milan vs Juventus may be the most prestigious.

With River and Boca Juniors' Superclasico, the Manchester derby and Der Klassiker between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund this weekend, fans of those clubs will attest to the ferociousness, anger general disdain in their football rivalry as opposed to others.

Compared those derbies as well as others in Italy, Juventus-Milan might not have fans and players frothing at the mouth like Olympiacos v Panathinaikos does.

Dybala: ‘Happy birthday Del Piero’

Paulo Dybala wishes Alessandro Del Piero a happy birthday, having inherited his Juventus number 10 shirt.

The Argentine was given the iconic number last summer, with previous players to wear it including Omar Sivori, Michel Platini and Roberto Baggio.

Arguably its greatest bearer though is Pinturicchio, who played a record 705 games for the club, and is the top goalscorer of all time.

Today is his birthday, and La Joya took to social media to wish him many happy returns.

Happy birthday, Del Piero!

Today is the 44th birthday of Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero, a World Cup winner with Italy in 2006.

Born in Conegliano on November 9, 1974 the forward grew up in Saccon in the commune of San Vendemiano.

Del Piero’s father, Gino, was an electrician while his mother, Bruna, implored the young Alessandro to play in goal for the local youth team, reasoning that if he sweated less he’d be less likely to get ill.

On this day: Juventus founded

Today marks the 121st anniversary of the founding of Serie A’s most successful club, Juventus.

The club was founded on November 1, 1897 by students from the Massimo D'Azeglio Lyceum school, and initially wore pink and black kits.

It was in 1903 that the famous Bianconeri kits were adopted, with then Juve player Tom Gordon Savage sourcing black and white kits from his hometown side, Notts County.

Savage had met his wife, Sarah, in Turin and had two children in the city, Ettore and Richard Savage.

Serie A clubs back on song

Dybala makes hat-trick history

Paulo Dybala has become only the fourth Juventus player to score a Champions League hat-trick, following Pippo Inzaghi, Alex Del Piero and Arturo Vidal.

He bagged his first treble of the tournament in this evening’s match against Swiss side Young Boys.

La Joya follows in the footsteps of some Juventus legends to have scored three in a single Champions League game – clearly not counting the European Cup in its previous incarnation.

Marotta points to Juventus pragmatism

As Beppe Marotta leaves Juventus, Adam Digby explains why this is simply another example of the Old Lady putting pragmatism ahead of sentiment as the Bianconeri make another cold and calculated business decision.

At the weekend Beppe Marotta gave an interview to Sky Italia, something the Juventus CEO has done at every match over the last eight years. On each previous occasion, the conversation has followed a thoroughly predictable format; discuss the previous match, talk about whichever player is in the news, dodge an obvious question about possible transfer targets and always speak respectfully about the opponent no matter if it’s Benevento or Barcelona.
