Juventus began a journey back on this day in 1905 that would set them on the way to becoming Italy’s most decorated team, but what was it?

Juventus are know as the “Old Lady” of Italian football.

The Bianconeri were founded in 1897, and were one of the founding members of the Italian football league.

1903 and 1904 they were runners up to the leagues dominate force at the time Genoa, who had won six of the first seven league titles.

But in 1905, things were about to change.

Juventus got their hands on a very first Scudetto on the 9th April 1905.

Little did anyone know at that time, they would go on to become the most decorated team in Serie A.

The Bianconeri have won an unprecedented 37 Scudettos since that first one.

They are currently on a run of nine consecutive titles, and should they complete this 2019/20 season as champions once more that would make it 38.
