Even the most passionate Bianconeri fans would be hard pushed to remember the last encounter between Juventus and Lechia Gdansk. The only previous meeting between the two teams came in 1983 in the first round of the European Cup Winners’ Cup.
In the first round tie at Turin’s Stadio Comunale on 14 September 1983, goals from Paolo Rossi, Michel Platini (two) and Domenico Penzo (four) tied up a 7-0 home win in the first leg.
The opening effort had a touch of fortune about it as the Lechia keeper could only spill a looping right wing cross into the path of Platini who poked home from close range.
The lead was doubled five minutes later as Cabrini’s centre found Penzo at the back post to volley home for his first of four on the night.
