    Although the Bianconeri have never faced Europa League opponents Lyon in official competitions before, they have already made two trips to the ground where they’ll be in action on Thursday in France

    Juventus have never contested an official match against Thursday’s Europa League opponents Lyon, but they have in fact already twice lined up at the club’s home ground: the Stade de Gerland.

    The first of these games was a friendly against Lyon on 15 June 1965, played due to a clause in Nestor Combin’s transfer from the club to Juventus.

    And it was none other than the Argentine-born Frenchman who scored the winner in a 2-1 triumph for the Bianconeri side featuring Ballon d’Or winner Omar Sivori.

    Juve returned to Lyon’s stadium on 13 September 1972 to face Marseille on neutral turf in their first game of the European Cup.

    In the season they would go on to reach the final in Belgrade, the men in black and white stripes in fact lost that day due to a Sandro Salvadore own-goal, but would go on to overturn things with a 3-0 win in the second leg at the Stadio Comunale.
