The history of Juventus comebacks in Champions League/European Cup of Champions

Juventus will face Atletico Madrid for the second leg of Champions League Round of 16.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side will try to make a comeback after 2-0 defeat at Wanda Metropolitano. Ajax and Manchester United have proven that every kind of comeback is possible in this competition. And with this in mind, Juventus could become the next team to add another fantastic comeback against Diego Simeone’s dominant defense.

Since the very first competition of European cup of Champions Juventus have managed to make a comeback 8 times.

The very first one came during 1967/68 season, when Bianconeri beat German side Eintracht Braunschweig.
