      With heavy snow falling in Turin on 11 December 2002, Marcello Lippi’s Juventus put four past Basel in a dominant home Champions League performance

      As Juventus wait for battle to recommence against Galatasaray at 14.00 CET this afternoon, they might take inspiration from the fact that 11 years ago today, on 11 December 2002, the Bianconeri triumphed against Basel in the same snowy conditions.

      It finished 4-0 against the Swiss, a resounding victory in the second group stage of the 2002/03 Champions League tournament which Marcello Lippi’s men would eventually reach the final of.

      The Stadio Delle Alpi pitch was covered by a blanket of white prior to the good work of the groundsmen in clearing it before kick-off. But Juventus emerged fully fired up despite the cold, and raced to a 3-0 lead going into half-time thanks to goals from David Trezeguet, Paolo Montero and Alessio Tacchinardi.

      The man to wrap up the game from the penalty spot was Alessandro Del Piero, who would later be substituted by a certain Antonio Conte.
