On Sunday 28th September 2930, in Turin, Juventus beat Pro Patria 4-1. The goals were scored by Cesarini on the 1st minute (a rather strange occasion for a player who generally scored in the final minutes) and a hat-trick by Vecchina on his official debut with the Juventus jersey.
Why is such importance given to this match? This is because exactly 80 years ago, thanks to this victory, Juventus officially began the Quinquennio era. The match against the team from Lombardia was the first match day of the 1930/31 championship, , the second after the one on a single round basis. The championship was won by the bianconeri and was the first of 5 consecutive titles.
On the field that day, the coach could count on a number of champions who left their mark in the history of Juventus such as the mythical trio Combi-Rosetta-Caligaris, Orsi and Ferrari. It was the debut for Giovanni Ferrari, the player who left his mark on all of the 5 scudetti besides another 3 won with Inter, for a total of 8, which until this very day makes him 1 of 3 record-man in the history of Italian football. He is in the good company of two other Juventus symbols, that is Beppe Furino (all won with Juventus) and Ciro Ferrara (6 won with Juventus and 2 with Napoli).
Just today, 14 years ago, Juventus was living one of their history unforgettable moments. On 26th November 1996, the bianconeri are back on the top of the world, winning Intercontinental Cup. In Tokyo, the Argentineans of River Plate are beaten 1-0 thanks to a feat by Alessandro Del Piero.
For the team trained by Marcello Lippi, it’ s the accomplishment of a masterpiece started with 1995 Scudetto and gone on with the Champions League, raising the cup to the Roman sky a few months before. For Juventus it’s about winning this Championship for the second time, after the one won in 1985, by the group Giovanni Trapattoni was training at that time.
