Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba
Ahead of the final game of the Serie A season, Goal picks Juventus' best XI from their seven consecutive title triumphs

  • Gianluigi Buffon Juventus

    Gianluigi Buffon

    The easiest choice to make in the team as Juventus legend Buffon has played a part in every title win in this run.

    Buffon has been the one constant between the sticks for the past 15 years, even remaining with the club after their relegation to Serie B.

    The 40-year-old is ending his time at Juve and he will be missed immensely by the club and their fans.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner Juventus

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    Another player who has played a part in each of the last seven Scudetto wins, Lichtsteiner has been one of the most consistent performers in the Juventus team during that time.

    His energy and endless running have earned him the nicknames ‘Forrest Gump’ and ‘The Swiss Express’, and he will join Buffon in leaving Juve this summer.

  • Giorgio Chiellini - Juventus

    Giorgio Chiellini

    Chiellini has been at Juventus since the Serie B days and, in recent years, he has firmly established himself as one of the best defenders in the world.

    He has been a key player in every title-winning season but never more so than in the 2011-12 campaign when Juventus won the title undefeated, conceding just 20 goals in the process.

  • Leonardo Bonucci Juventus

    Leonardo Bonucci

    Alongside Andrea Barzagli and Chiellini, Bonucci created one of the most formidable defensive units in the world.

    Bonucci is an incredible defender and also boasts a wonderful passing range, although he created a major surprise last summer when leaving Juve for AC Milan.

  • Alex Sandro Juventus

    Alex Sandro

    Alex Sandro is a relatively recent addition to the Juventus squad compared to the rest of the defence, but he has been impressive since joining from Porto in 2015.

    In his three seasons at the club, he has proven to be their best left-back of the past decade with his attacking mindset and ability to cross a ball.

  • Andrea Pirlo Juventus

    Andrea Pirlo

    When Andrea Pirlo signed for Juve in 2011 on a free transfer, he was already into his 30s, but he ended up enjoying the best years of his career at the Old Lady.

    Pirlo showed his class throughout his time at Juventus, winning the title in all four seasons at the club before his move to New York City FC in 2015.

  • Arturo Vidal Juventus Chelsea

    Arturo Vidal

    The Chilean midfielder makes it in this team ahead of Claudio Marchisio, having spent the same four seasons at Juve as Pirlo.

    Vidal was immense at Juve, a tireless midfielder who never shied away from a tackle. He also scored 18 goals in the 2013-14 season before leaving for Bayern Munich 12 months later.

  • Paul Pogba Juventus

    Paul Pogba

    Pogba completes the midfield three alongside Pirlo and Vidal which helped Juve to the 2015 Champions League final, with an argument to be made that, at the time, it was the best midfield trio in the world.

    The France international was the gem of the Juve squad that season through his all-round play before returning to Manchester United in a world-record move in 2016.

  • Paulo Dybala Juventus 2017-18

    Paulo Dybala

    The Argentine has scored 52 goals in 92 Serie A games for Juve and has regularly displayed his brilliance over the past three seasons.

  • Gonzalo Higuain Juventus

    Gonzalo Higuain

    Higuain was signed for £75 million from Napoli as Paul Pogba departed the club, with many questioning the price paid for the then-28-year-old, even on the back of three prolific seasons in Serie A.

    But his goals have helped to fire Juve to their last two titles, hitting 40 in 70 for the club in the league, while the Argentine striker has also scored 10 Champions League goals for the club.

  • Carlos Tevez Juventus Coppa Italia

    Carlos Tevez

    Tevez enjoyed a career resurgence at Juventus, with Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri managing to get the best out of him as he scored 39 in 66 league appearances.
