OL - Juventus : OL vs Italie, 27ème épisode
This Wednesday evening against Juventus in the Round of 16 of the Champions League, OL will face, for the 27th time in its history, an Italian club in one of the European Cups.

The story between OL and Italian football continues to grow. The club have already crossed the Alps 26 times since its founding in 1950. And have been doing rather well since it is almost a level playing field with an overall record of 8 wins and 7 draws against 11 defeats to clubs from Italy, a nation that has long dominated the continental scene with clubs such as AC Milan, Juventus, and Inter…

13 times an Italian team have come to Lyon, 10 times to the Stade de Gerland and 3 times to the Groupama Stadium since its opening in 2016. Historically, OL have a very balanced record of 4 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses at home. But it was also at home that the club experienced immense disillusionment with these teams...

The Italians have often been the executioners of Lyon in the knockout rounds with 6 eliminations from their 8 double legged continental ties. However, OL have twice avoided defeat. It was in two memorable double legged ties, one in the 1995-96 season in the Round of 32 in the UEFA Cup against Lazio, and in the 2016-17 season in the Round of 16 of the Europa League against the other Roman club, AS Roma.
