The Juventus Allievi Nazionali team have followed in the footsteps of the Primavera squad to be named champions of Italy! As with their elders, Storgato's squad faced Fiorentina in the final, winning on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
At the end of the first half fiorentina held the advantage, leading 1-0 through Lepri's 26th minute goal. Whilst the viola goalkeeper was able to prevent Juve from equalising just before half-time, he could do nothing stop Pasquato's effort from finding the back of the net eleven minutes after the restart.
As the second half wore on Juventus tried their luck through Maritato, Pasquato and Essabr, whilst Lattanzio went close for the opposition, but neither team was able to make the breakthrough. With tiredness beginning to show extra-time passed without much excitement leading the sides to the penalty spot. With the score poised at four-all it Neri saved the decisive effort to hand Juventus the national championship.

Primavera Champions!

Juve's Primavera squad are champions of Italy. Scenes of joyous celebration greeted the final whistle as the bianconeri ended a magnificent season in triumph, beating Fiorentina by 2-0 thanks to goals from Criscito (7') and Paolucci (37'). The win secures the Primavera championship for Juventus for the first time since 1994 and the squad were congratulated on their success by the new Director of Sporting Affairs, Alessio Secco.

The match:

The bianconeri coach sent his team onto the field in a 4-3-1-2 formation with Scarzanella in goal, Di Cuonzo, Zammuto, Criscito and Rossi in defence, Marchisio, Venitucci and De Ceglie in midfield, Giovinco playing off the two strikers and Paolucci and Volpe leading the attack. Only seven minutes had elapsed before Juventus were ahead: Giovinco’s free-kick from the left hand side found Criscito in the box, whose well-placed header made it 1-0. Whilst Fiorentina tried to get themselves back into the game and created several dangerous opportunities, the majority of the possession and chances went the way of Juventus. Twenty minutes in and the bianconeri went close to doubling their advantage, Giovinco’s free-kick striking the crossbar and beginning a series of opportunities for Chiarenza’s squad; Rossi and Marchesio tried their luck before Paolucci struck wide on 28’ minutes, forced the keeper into a good save on 31’ and saw an acrobatic effort go just over before finally seizing his chance and putting Juve 2-0 ahead. With 37’ passed Giovinco fed the young striker who sped into the opposition half on the counter-attack, beat a defender and smashed his shot into the back of the net.

In the final minutes of the half Volpe’s effort brushed the post whilst, at the other end, Zammuto deflected De Falco’s effort wide for a corner.

The second half began with the squads unchanged and Juventus looking increasingly dangerous. Only four minutes had passed when De Ceglie’s effort was cleared for a corner, and minutes afterwards a blistering left-footed shot from Venituci brushed the post. A quarter of an hour later Scarzanella pulled off a fantastic save from a free-kick to deny Fiorentina a lifeline - it was to be one of the few moments his goal was troubled.

From then on Juventus took charge of the game as they sought to increase their lead and kill off the game for good. Twenty-five minutes into the half Giovinco was again denied, although his performance merited the ‘Guerin d’Oro’ as man-of-the-match. As the final whistle sounded, Juventus left the field as 2-0 victors and secured the Primavera championship for the bianconeri for the first time in 12 years.

Secco: "Congratulations"

As the Primavera squad sealed a vital win against Fiorentina to cap a fantastic season, Alessio Secco, the new Director of Sporting Affairs, proudly looked on: “For me it’s a really lucky debut and I’m happy to have begun in this manner even if I personally didn’t merit this victory, which belongs to the players, the coach and everyone who has worked so hard to get this fantastic squad together on the pitch.”

The bianconeri coach Vincenzo Chiarenza, who himself won the Primavera championship as a player in the 1971-72 season, beamed with satisfaction: “I’m hugely happy and very emotional…the boys have had a great season and truly deserved this victory.” Giovinco, who was named player of the tournament, said: “I’m really happy to have won this trophy, and now we can celebrate! We are a really close-knit group. I dedicate this victory to my parents and my girlfriend.”

Paolucci, who was unsurprisingly on the scoresheet following a magnificent goal, could barely contain his excitement: “I’m really happy. Of all the goals I’ve scores this season, this was the most difficult but also the best. Goals in the final are the most important, and the ones that really mean something.”

A spectacular and exciting semi-final saw the Juventus Primavera squad beat Palermo to reach the final of the domestic championship. Chiarenza's boys recorded a 3-2 win over the Sicilians in a combative encounter that was highly dramatic from start to finish.
The Bianconeri took the lead 37' into the first half through a magnificent Giovinco free-kick and doubled their advantage after the break with a splendid solo goal from Paolucci whose scissor-kick beat the opposition keeper following a perfect pass from Del Prete. Although at this point the game seemed closed, Palermo clawed a goal back from Terranova's header. However, Juventus managed to hang on to their lead and Paolucci scored his second of the evening, and his 26th of the season, in the first minute of injury time afer good counter-attacking play from the bianconeri. It wasn't finished there though. In the 49' minute of the second half Carbonaro scored with a neat lob that gave the Sicilians some consolation.

Victory ensured Juventus a place in the final where they are set to meet Fiorentina,who beat Milan 2-1 in the other semi-final, in the 'Romeo Neri' stadium in Rimini at 21:00 on Thursday 8th June.
