Season 2003-2004

Juventus Football Club could not defend its league title from 2002–03, and tumbled down to third in the standings. Sensationally, it conceded a near-record 42 goals during the course of the season, as new signing Nicola Legrottaglie looked totally out of depth in central defence. So poor was Legrottaglie's form that the club's following manager, Fabio Capello, barely used him at all in his first six months in charge, before eventually shipping him out on loan to various clubs until the end of the 2005–06 season.

Despite a promising start to the season Juventus could not reach any of the season's targets, and therefore coach Marcello Lippi did not get a new contract. A potential turning point in the season was a 1–3 loss at home in the Derby d'Italia against fierce rivals Internazionale. Until then, Juventus had gone unbeaten in their first ten games of the season; after that, they suffered regularly, losing the next game to Lazio 2–0. A brief revival was followed by more defeats in February and March 2004, against Roma (4–0) and Milan (1–3 at home), who went on to top the league.

In Europe, the Bianconeri were impressive in the group stages, topping their group and brushing aside Spanish opponents Real Sociedad, losing just one game in the process. In the first knockout round, they faced Deportivo La Coruña. A totally uninspired Juventus side lost both legs 1–0, and deservedly crashed out of the competition.

Owner Umberto Agnelli died at the end of the season, but before his death he had signed Fabio Capello as Lippi's replacement. Capello had initially denied all rumours linking him with a return to the club he had appeared for as a player in the 1970s. In the end, he did negotiate with Juventus and sign with him, generating furious reactions from Roma fans.
