      Take a look back at previous Bianconeri trips to Greece

      Tuesday's match against Olympiacos marks the 12th time the Bianconeri have played in UEFA competition in Greece with the balance an even 4 wins, 4 losses and 3 draws.

      Here's a look at Juve's history in Greece:

      FIVE TIMES AGAINST OLYMPIACOS

      Since 1967 there have been five matches that saw Juventus play in Athens against Olympiacos.

      In 1967, the first round of the European Champion Clubs' Cup saw the Bianconeri draw 0-0, but go on to the next stage by virtue of the 2-0 win in the first leg.

      In 1999, Olympiacos and Juve faced twice in two seasons and two different competitions. The first saw Juve dramatically advance in the Champions League as Conte's goal earned a 1-1 draw for Juve on the night and a 3-2 win on aggregate. 

      In the same calendar year but new season, the Bianconeri fell in the UEFA Cup 2-1 to Olympiacos in Greece.

      In 2003, a Nedved double saw the Bianconeri come back to win 2-1 while the most recent trip to face Olympiacos in 2015 in Athens ended in a 1-0 win for the hosts. 

      OTHER TRIPS TO GREECE

      Juventus have faced AEK Athens once in April 1977 in the UEFA Cup semifinals. A 4-1 win in Turin was followed up with a 1-0 win in Athens by way of a Bettega goal. 

      The other five matches in Greece have come against Panathinaikos beginning in 1961 in the European Cup with a 1-1 draw away from home. The Bianconeri would advance with a 2-1 win in Turin.

      The first round of the 1980/81 UEFA Cup saw the Bianconeri fall 4-2 in Athens, but easily advance with a 4-0 win in Turin. 

      In 1987, Juventus was eliminated by Panathinaikos in the second round of the UEFA Cup falling 1-0 in Athens after a 3-2 win in Turin with the Greeks advancing on away goals. 
      En route to the 1992/93 UEFA Cup, the Bianconeri met Panathinaikos in the second round. It proved to be a tight affair with a Platt goal in Athens the only strike in 180 minutes.
      Finally the 2000/2001 Champions League saw Panathinaikos win 3-1 at home against the Bianconeri with Paulo Sousa scoring the only goal for Juventus.
