Juve reached the last eight thanks to a 3-0 victory over Atletico Madrid, courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick, after they were 2-0 down from the first leg.

They lost 3-1 and 3-0 to Barca in the 2015 Final and 2017-18 group stage but did thrash the Catalans 3-0 in the 2017 quarter-finals.

The Old Lady lost out to a Manchester United comeback in the 1999 semi-finals and suffered defeat on home soil in this season’s group stage but did win at Old Trafford back in October.

The last time Max Allegri’s side faced Manchester City was in the 2015-16 group stage, winning both games, while they knocked out Porto in the last 16 two years ago.

As for Liverpool, the Reds eliminated Juve at the quarter-final stage in 2005 but lost 1-0 to them in the 1985 European Cup Final, where 39 people lost their lives during the Heysel Stadium disaster.

Finally, Juve came back from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-3 on aggregate in the Round of 16 last season.
