Statistics that show how Manchester United faced a big task against Juventus in Turin

If Manchester United get a victory at Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday, then they will do something that only two teams have succeeded before.

Juventus has turned the Allianz Stadium into a fort since moving there in 2011.

La Vecchia Signora has been beaten in just nine of the 188 matches they played in their new home in all competitions, which shows the size of the task facing United.

It worked because only 5% of the game and only two defeats at Juve in the Champions League.

Bayern Munich were the first team to beat Juventus in Europe's main competition at their new stadium. The second leg of the 2012/13 quarter-finals ended 2-0 on the German side, making them 4-0 on aggregate.

The Bianconeri then went 47 games without defeat at home before losing to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia. They also continued 23 matches unbeaten in the Champions League.

The streak ended against Real Madrid last season when the Spanish giants won 3-0, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a bicycle kick for his Puskas Award nomination.

Juve almost turned the tie in the second leg, but lost with a Ronaldo penalty in the 98th minute, which put the champions finally qualified for the semi-finals.

Juventus have a perfect record in the Champions League so far, winning all three of their matches, including a 1-0 win at Old Trafford two weeks ago.

That made Massimiliano Allegri's side from Group H reach nine points, with United in second place with four points.

Jose Mourinho's men have two points above Valencia, who face Young Boys at home on Wednesday.
