Season reviewEdit

After three domestic titles won in row, Juventus and Antonio Conte go on different paths: the manager leaves Turin, in order to become the coach of the Italian national team.[2] His place is took from Massimiliano Allegri who, in 2011, won the Scudetto managing Milan.[2] New men selected for 2014–15 season were Patrice Evra, Kingsley Coman and Álvaro Morata.[3] Carlos Tevez was an integral part of the team as the club's leading scorer.[4][5][6][7] Juventus lost the chance to gain the first seasonal trophy[8] with a loss to Napoli in the 2014 Supercoppa Italiana on penalties after a 2–2 draw.[9]

During the second part of season, Juventus retain the lead of Serie A reaching - at the same time - final step in both cups, domestic and continental.[10][11][12] On 26 April 2015, Juventus was beaten 2–1 by Torino: the Granata side wins the Derby della Mole for the first time in 20 years, having gained the previous success on 9 April 1995.[13] Six days later, beating Sampdoria away, the Bianconeri win the league title (fourth consecutive and 31st overall) with four games left to play.[14] Between matchdays 36 and 37, Allegri also conquests the Coppa Italia with a 2–1 win over Lazio: the tenth win for Turin club in this competition; a new domestic record.[15] Juventus finished the league with 17 points more than second-placed Roma, but fell as runners-up in Europe, losing 3–1 against Barcelona in the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final.[16] The first half ended with an early Ivan Rakitić goal to give the advantage to the Spanish side, but Juventus were able to equalize after 10 minutes of the second half with a Morata goal.[16] Barcelona then scored two more goals in the 68th minute by Luis Suárez, with the final goal coming during injury time.[16]
