Juventus will wear a humdinger of an old school jersey to celebrate their 120th birthday

A kit commemorating the Old Lady’s anniversary will be worn this weekend.

The special one-off strip, comprising the classic black-and-white stripes and a simple three-gold-star badge to mark 30 league titles in Italy, will be used for the match at the Allianz Stadium.

Only 1897 shirts will be made, in honour of the year in which the club was founded by a group of students in Turin, and will be available to buy from the official club store.

Juve have also promised “yet more celebrations with lots of surprises and special initiatives” at the game against Serie A’s bottom club.

Notts County, the club whose black-and-white strip inspired Juve to adopt the same, were among those to congratulate the Old Lady for turning 120 on Wednesday.

Juve originally played in pink before embracing the English side’s colours.
