    Juventus have taken on Benfica twice before in two different competitions at the old Estadio Da Luz, replaced by the current stadium in 2003

    Though Juventus have never faced Benfica at the new Estadio Da Luz before, they have contested two away games at the old stadium of the same name which it replaced in 2003.

    The first dates back to 1968, when the two sides were battling it out for a place in the European Cup final.

    In the end it was the hosts who triumphed, lifted to a 2-0 victory by goals from Jose Augusto Torres and the club’s most famous icon, the 'Black Panther' Eusebio.

    The Eagles also emerged victorious in 1993, when the occasion was the UEFA Cup quarter-finals, though Juve would go on to succeed in overturning the scoreline in Turin.

    A Vitor Paneira double made the difference in Lisbon, but a crucial goal from Gianluca Vialli kept the possibility of progressing open for the Bianconeri.

    Also on Giovanni Trapattoni’s Juventus teamsheet that day was a certain Antonio Conte.
