      Juventus have managed to reach the next round three times out of four following a 1-1 draw in the home fixture of a two-legged European affair

      Ahead of looking to follow up their 1-1 draw in the Europa League last 16 home leg against Fiorentina with a win when they travel to the Artemio Franchi on Thursday, the Bianconeri have previously faced the same situation four times in European competition.

      And Antonio Conte’s men will perhaps be able to take inspiration from the fact that they’ve managed it on no less than three occasions, losing just once in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1971/72.

      The three successes were all pulled off in very different eras, the first dating back to 1965 in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

      Juve ran out a 1-1 draw with Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Bulgaria after the same scoreline in the first leg, and with extra time not yet introduced in football it was a play-off that would decide the winner. Omar Sivori went on to prove the key man at Turin’s Stadio Comunale, netting a double to inspire the Bianconeri to a 2-1 win.

      The two remaining triumphs were both obtained by Marcello Lippi’s men against prestigious Champions League opposition.

      The first, in 1998, was a stunning 4-1 away victory over a Dynamo Kiev side featuring a young Andriy Shevchenko. But it was Juve striker Filippo Inzaghi who stole the show with a hat-trick, followed up by the cherry on the cake from Alessandro Del Piero.

      To finish, a 2-1 extra-time win at the Camp Nou in 2003 after the 1-1 draw with Barcelona at the Delle Alpi. Both Pavel Nedved’s opener and the perfect deflection on an Alessandro Birindelli cross from Marcelo Zalayeta with 114 minutes gone were both unforgettable moments in a famous win.
