      The story of the Old lady on a trip through the cities where she had a starring role

      The first visit to a new place is always the best. The pleasure of discovery, the charm of the new, the curiosity for novelty: those who have never experienced this very particular sensation, we invite you to do so as soon as you can leave the house. In the case of Juventus in Copenaghen, the results are reinforced by the idea that the best is experienced immediately.

      That was the case in the Champions League outing on September 15, 1982. In fact, they say that the debut test in the Danish capital went more than well: a 4-1 victory over Hvidovre. The reason? Michel Platini along with Paolo Rossi, Sergio Brio and Antonio Cabrini sealed off a historic first official victory in Copenhagen. 

      The other tests in the Champions League, dating back in the last decade, are not equally positive, both under the management of Antonio Conte. Two 1-1 draws against two different opponents - Nordsjaelland and Copenhagen. Those two fixtures were also two stumbling blocks of different weight: the first irrelevant for progressing out of the group stage (2012-13); while the second was decisive for the final group ranking (2013-14). There were some similarities in the two matches: Juve were at a disadvantage and they relied on the goals by Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella, who scored in their respective games to secure a point. 

      A JOURNEY THROUGH THE PAST

      The first time, actually, is also a journey into the past. Because for former President Giampiero Boniperti, Denmark is somewhat déjà-vu. For him, it is a return to the days of June in 1953, when the Old Lady played a series of friendlies in the country, two of which took place in Copenhagen. The results were a 2-1 victory over B93 and a 4-2 triumph against Alliance. That Juve, moreover, was full of Danish champions and the challenge of the Champions Cup was the opportunity for a good repatriation with the companions of the past: Karl Aage Praest, Karl Aage Hansen and John Hansen.
