It’s hard to beat the World Champions.
And that’s why the Italians’ first leg against Germany in Berlin was such a success.
Juventus, who have never lost a major European title, beat Bayern Munich 4-1 on Sunday, securing a place in the Champions League final.
But if they do qualify, it will be a dream come true.
It will mark the second time in the last five years that a side from Italy has gone through to the final after taking part in a World Cup qualifying campaign.
This time, the team from the region’s biggest city, Turin, won a semi-final match against Bayern in October 2010, with the hosts reaching the final.
Juventus also won the 2010 European Cup, beating Real Madrid in the final on penalties.
They won the 2011 World Cup and the 2012 European Cup.
But their most recent major triumph came in May 2015, when they defeated Barcelona 4-2 in the quarter-finals.
Juventus are unbeaten in their last eight games, but the Champions league is a different beast, with so many players not yet established at the top level of their national teams.
The title is also highly coveted.
The best-performing team of the tournament so far is Bayern Munich, who finished third last year.
If Juventus qualify for the final, it could be the start of an exciting year for Juve.
