      Ahead of Wednesday night’s Group A Champions League match-up with Atletico Madrid, Juventus.com profiles the last time the Bianconeri came away from the Spanish capital with all three points

      Back in November 2008, Claudio Ranieri’s Juventus side secured their third Champions League victory in four games by beating Real Madrid 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

      Alessandro Del Piero nabbed a brace either side of half-time to ensure the Bianconeri registered their first success at Los Blancos’ home ground in 46 years.

      They were ahead in the 17th minute when Marco Marchionni intercepted a stray pass from Guti Hernandez on the centre circle before supplying Del Piero who had made a run infield. He then drove forward towards goal unchallenged prior to curling a left-footed effort past the despairing dive of Iker Casillas.

      Midway through the second-half, it was two.

      Former Juventus centre back Fabio Cannavaro fouled an onrushing Momo Sissoko 25 yards out in Del Piero’s favourite territory. The Italian duly obliged from the set-piece as he bent an exquisite free-kick past the unmoved Casillas to wrap up a deserved 2-0 victory for the Old Lady.

      The result would prove significant as the Bianconeri went on to win Group H, pipping Real at the post on head-to-head results, before eventually bowing out of the competition to Chelsea at the last 16 stage.
