Andrea Barzagli

Juventus

• Started 34 of Juventus' 38 matches in the 2011/12 Serie A campaign, in which the Turin giants reclaimed the Scudetto after a nine-year wait and went through the entire season undefeated, conceding just 20 goals.

• Ended his first full season in Turin by finishing as a runner-up in the Coppa Italia to SSC Napoli – the Bianconeri's only domestic defeat all season.
