      When the Bianconeri have won 1-0 away from home in the first leg of a European knockout tie, they have always subsequently gone on to reach the next round at home

      Juve have in fact won nine of the ten European knockout tie second legs that have followed a single-goal triumph in the first, recording a draw that put them through to the next round all the same on just one occasion.

      The series begins in the 1964/65 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, when the Bianconeri followed up the narrow 1-0 success snatched in Brussels with another at the Stadio Comunale in Turin thanks to Giampaolo Menichelli.

      In the 1970/71 edition of the same competition, a Pietro Anastasi double overcame Hungarian side Pecsi Dozsa.

      The following year, this time in the UEFA Cup, Roberto Bettega was the hat-trick hero in a 4-1 triumph at home to Rapid Vienna that also saw Franco Causio convert from the spot.

      And the scoreline was even better against Glentoran in the 1977/78 European Cup, when Giovanni Trapattoni’s men cruised to a 5-0 win with Pietro Paolo Virdis scoring twice alongside Roberto Boninsegna, Pietro Fanna and Romeo Benetti.

      Much narrower was Juve’s 1983/84 Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final second leg against Haka Valkeakoski. In the year the Bianconeri would go on to beat Basel to lift the trophy, it was a header from Marco Tardelli that eventually put the Finnish team out.

      The sequence picks up again in 1988/89, Standard Liege Juve’s victims this time. Alessandro Altobelli was the man who put them to the sword in a 1-0 win.
