0-2 always deadly for Juventus

Juventus will have to re-write history if they are to eliminate Bayern Munich from the Champions League.

On the four previous occasions that the Old Lady have lost the first leg of a European tie 2-0, they have always been knocked out.

In 1968, the Bianconeri were defeated 2-0 and then 1-0 by Portuguese giants Benfica in the semi-finals of the European Cup.

Five years later and Dynamo Dresden progressed at the expense of the Italians thanks to a 4-3 aggregate win.

In 1975, Juve could only draw the return leg 2-2 against Borussia Monchengladbach. Current Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes actually scored for Borussia in their first leg 2-0 win in that encounter.

Juve’s second leg game against Arsenal in April 2006 ended goalless after a 2-0 reverse in London versus Arsene Wenger’s side.

Antonio Conte’s team fell at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday. The return leg will take place next Wednesday in Turin.
