    In August 2004, a 4-1 third round qualifying triumph over Djurgardens IF seals the Bianconeri’s place in the Champions League group stages

    In August 2004, following a 2-2 draw in their first leg Champions League third round qualifier against Djurgardens IF at the Delle Alpi, Juventus travelled to Sweden determined to secure a spot in the group stages.

    After finding the Swedes a tough nut to track in the first meeting, it was a different story entirely in the second leg, as a ruthless Bianconeri, bolstered by the return of Pavel Nedved, prevailed courtesy of a 4-1 triumph.

    In front of a capacity crowd in Stockholm, Fabio Capello’s charges took no prisoners and gained an early foothold in the affair when Alessandro Del Piero opened the scoring with just 10 minutes played.

    A Johan Arneng piledriver midway through the first half threatened to knock Juventus off course, but they regained control of their European destiny ten minutes later thanks to Trezeguet’s emphatic finish.

    On 54 minutes, Nedved all but booked the Bianconeri’s spot in the last 32 when he danced through the defence before slotting home, while an unmarked Trezeguet made absolutely sure with a classic poacher’s finish three minutes from time.
