      The Bianconeri's final Champions League group match kicks off at the Stade de Suisse at 21:00 CET

      Juventus are in Champions League action once again this evening as they take on Young Boys in their final Group H fixture. The Old Lady is looking for a win at Berne's Stade de Suisse to secure top spot in Group H.

      Here are 10 things you should know ahead of tonight's 21:00 CET kick-off...

      1. JUST ONCE BEFORE

      The first-ever competitive fixture between Young Boys and Juventus took place on Matchday 2 back in October, when a Paulo Dybala hat-trick saw the Bianconeri run out 3-0 winners.

      2. YOUNG BOYS CHASING FIRST WIN

      Young Boys are yet to win at home in Europe this season. They drew 1-1 with Dinamo Zagreb in the play-offs before losing to Manchester United (0-3) and drawing with Valencia (1-1) in the group stage.

      3. FIVE ON THE BOUNCE

      Juventus have won their last five away matches in the Champions League – their longest-ever winning run away from home in the Champions League/European Cup. 

      4. FIVE OUT OF SIX

      Victory tonight would see Juventus win five of their six Champions League group matches for the first time since achieving that feat in back-to-back campaigns in 2004/05 and 2005/06.

      5. MR. CLEAN SHEET

      Massimiliano Allegri's teams have recorded clean sheets in 46% of all matches played in the Champions League (37/81). Only Diego Simeone (54%) and Fabio Capello (48%) have a higher percentage among coaches with more than 50 games in the competition.

      6. YOUNG BOYS' AIM

      Young Boys are the team with the lowest shots-to-goals ratio in this year's Champions League – just two of their 64 attempts (3.1%) have found the back of the net. 

      7. RONALDO EYES CLUB NUMBER 33

      Tonight's game against Young Boys is a chance for Cristiano Ronaldo to score against a 33rd different club in the Champions League.

      8. TREBLE JOYA

      Paulo Dybala helped himself to a hat-trick in the first meeting between these two sides in Matchday 2. The only player to have struck two Champions League hat-tricks against the same opponents in a single season is Luiz Adriano, who did so for Shakhtar against BATE Borisov in 2014/15.

      9. ONLY BASEL

      Young Boys' exit from this year's tournament means Basel are still the only Swiss team to have reached the knockout phase. Zurich, Thun and Grasshoppers have previously failed in their attempts. 

      10. JUVE FINISH TOP IF...

      Juventus are already sure of their place in the knockout stage and will qualify as group winners with victory over Young Boys or if Man United fail to beat Valencia away.
