Fiorentina-Juventus, anatomy of a rivalry

The grudge match between Fiorentina and Juventus runs deep, fuelled by decades of attrition and controversy, writes Anthony Barbagallo.

Try picturing a sea of purple flags, banners and over 40,000 Viola tifosi chanting “Oh Fiorentina” at their top their lungs throughout the iconic Stadio Artemio Franchi. The ultras in the Curva Fiesole shouting words like “ladri” (thieves) at the Juventus team – even though these current Bianconeri players weren’t around during the 1980s and 90s. This is the hostile environment Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. will experience this evening. It is only in Florence that this hate-filled rivalry evokes stronger memories of bitterness between the pair.
