      From Del Piero to Bonucci, the important goals towards the end of the group stage

      From our first Champions League to that of three years ago, qualifying for the first time at Allianz Stadium. Three Bianconeri moments in Europe's premier competition where the fifth matchday has had a particular importance for different reasons.

      1995-96 JUVENTUS-BORUSSIA DORTMUND 1-2

      The sweetest defeat ever suffered in the Champions League, as well as our first ever in the new incarnation of the European Cup, yet it is an evening that deserves to be remembered anyway.

      Juve come into the game with four wins in four matches, having already defeated Dortmund in Germany, Steaua Bucharestpresents itself in the strong race of the qualification obtained in advance by virtue of 4 victories in as many races. Borussia Dortmund in Germany, Steaua Bucharest at home and Rangers both home and away. 14 goals have already been scored by Marcello Lippi's team, which underlines their power. Alessandro Del Piero has already stood out, having scored in every match and in addition to his quantity of goals, each one has been struck with quality, and once more at the Delle Alpi, Del Piero doesn't disappoint scoring a trademark free-kick in stoppage time to beat goalkeeper Stefan Klos. 

      It's just a taste of more to come from the Bianconeri number 10 who will repeat the feat in the quater-finals against Real Madrid.

      2012-13 JUVENTUS-CHELSEA 3-0

      In the first meeting in London, Juve began their journey in the 2012-13 Champions League with a 2-2 comeback draw and left feeling unlucky not to take all three points after Fabio Quagliarella hit the crossbar late on.

      The return game in Turin effectively saw both sides going head-to-head for qualification. Juventus put in a masterclass of a performance from the first minute starting with Stephan Lichtsteiner hitting the post just four minutes in and then Gianluigi Buffon at the ready to foil Eden Hazard at the other end. The Bianconeri going into half-time a goal to the good when Quagliarella deflects Andrea Pirlo's shot past Petr Cech in the Chelsea goal.

      In the second half, which is totally dominated by Juve, Arturo Vidal doubles the Old Lady's lead after an hour, before Sebastian Giovinco makes it 3-0 to secure all three points on a Bianconeri counter-attack.

      2016-17 SEVILLA-JUVENTUS 1-3

      On Matchday 5 in this season's Champions League, Juve manage to gain early qualification in Spain by placing four points between themselves and Lyon in third place.

      However, the match begins uphill with Dani Pareja's goal in the ninth minute, but Sevilla make a big mistake when a former teammate of Paulo Dybala's at Palermo, Franco Vazquez receives two yellow cards in five minutes to leave his team down to 10 men. Before the end of the half Claudio Marchisio manages to equalise from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time.

      The decisive turning point comes at the end of the game when Leonardo Bonucci volleys in from a set-piece on 84 minutes, before Mario Mandzukic makes it safe, again deep into stoppage time to secure Juve's path into the knockout rounds, where they would eventually go on to reach the final.
