FC Copenhagen have never taken on Juventus in Turin, but the Bianconeri have hosted two other Danish sides during past European campaigns.
In 1982/83, it was Hvidovre who made the trip to the Stadio Comunale for the second leg of the European Cup last 16.
Two weeks after a 4-1 win for Giovanni Trapattoni’s men in the away leg, it was another goalfest at home: 3-3 was the final score, with strikes from Zbigniew Boniek, Michel Platini and Paolo Rossi sending the hosts through to the quarter-finals.
The only other time Juventus have lined up against a Danish side on home soil came as recently as last season, when they were drawn in Group E with Nordsjaelland.
Just like Antonio Conte’s men have done this season, last year’s Champions League campaign produced a 1-1 draw away in Denmark before the opposition’s arrival in Italy.
But the difference between the sides was much clearer to see in their second encounter with Nordsjaelland, who were comprehensively defeated 4-0 at Juventus Stadium.
Claudio Marchisio opened the scoring after just six minutes with a crisp close-range finish from Mauricio Isla’s cross, before Arturo Vidal made it two in unusual fashion with a powerful slide-tackle that surprised goalkeeper Jesper Hansen and found the back of the net from a tight angle.
After hitting the bar through an Alessandro Matri header, Sebastian Giovinco provided the third before half-time with a curling shot that dipped over Hansen from just inside the area.
Wrapping things up a quarter of an hour from the final whistle was Fabio Quagliarella, who headed in an Andrea Pirlo corner which Matri had deflected into his path.
