We are on the eve of one of the most interesting matches this Monday, of course we are talking about Juventus vs Chievo where the bets give as an obvious favorite to the local, in this publication I bring you 5 curiosities that I found about this game, we will make a trip through the history of mourning
The championship duel between Juventus and Chievo have always been in the new millennium, since the gialloblu are in Serie A with an almost fixed presence, while the first official match dates back to August 31, 1994 in Coppa Italia. It is a dense story, which has always reserved surprises and unexpected protagonists in Turin.
THE FIRST TIME
It is not a way of saying that the first Juventus-Chievo is really a historic match. Not only because it was the first time in the championship between both teams, it was also due to the circumstances. It was disputed on September 15, 2001, 4 days after the tragedy that hit the USA. and to the whole world, remembered with great emotion by the audience of Delle Alpi.
Chievo arrived in Turin as leader, thanks to 2 wins in their first two games. And at twenty minutes it seemed that a third could come with the double Marazzina. But Juve managed to turn the scoreboard thanks to Tacchinardi, Tudor and Salas.
Score 3 goals and not win the game. This is what happened to two Chievo strikers, Oliver Bierhoff and Sergio Pellissier. The German managed to score three goals in the last day of the championship 2002-03. But it did not help much, as a goal at the end of Cristian Zenoni gave the bianconeri the victory to certify a tournament they had already won mathematically, while the Veronese saw escape the qualification for the UEFA Cup. More fortunate was Pellissier (who holds the record of presence with the gialloblu), that with his hat-trick allowed his team to conquer a point in the spectacular 3-3 played in the Olympic.
AS 4 YEARS AGO ...
Juventus-Chievo on Monday will open the second round of the championship. A circumstance that already occurred during the first of the 5 Allegri Championships in Turin. In 2015, the Bianconeri began the second part of the tournament distancing themselves from Roma - who could not win in Florence - thanks to a 2-0 with Paul Pogba and Stephan Lichtsteiner as goal-scorers.
There are two clashes between Juventus and Chievo that have opened the championship. And, interestingly, they are united by a great coincidence. The goal of the victory was scored in both cases by a forward, and head: David Trezeguet in 2005-06 and Vincenzo Iaquinta 4 years later.
THE FIRST AND THE LAST
The last goal of Juventus-Chievo last year, match that ended 3-0, was the work of Paulo Dybala, author of a great personal action. And also the first goal of the Jewel in front of the stadium audience was against the Veronese, from the penalty spot on the third day of the 2015-16 championship.
