Snap shot: Juve's late surprise for Bayern

With Juventus travelling to face Bayern München this week, we recall their first ever trip 11 years ago and ask what happened to some of the architects of that 1-0 last-gasp win.

Juventus head to Germany this week hoping to record just their second victory away against round of 16 rivals Bayern München, their first a 1-0 success on their maiden trip in November 2004. UEFA.com looks back at that tense affair, when a last-minute Alessandro Del Piero goal sealed top spot in UEFA Champions League Group C for the visitors.

1. Gianluca Zambrotta
A winger turned full-back, Zambrotta left Juventus for Barcelona after helping Italy win the 2006 FIFA World Cup, when he scored the opener in the 3-0 quarter-final win against Ukraine. He played for two seasons with Barça and four at AC Milan, where he won the Scudetto in 2010/11. Zambrotta finished his career in the Swiss second tier in 2013/14, when he played three league games for Chiasso before taking charge as coach. Dismissed in April, he now works as a pundit on Swiss television.

2. Gianluca Pessotto
Capped 22 times by Italy and a UEFA Champions League winner with Juventus in 1995/96, the left-back ended his playing days in 2006 but continued to work for Juventus as part of the coaching staff. The cultured Pessotto – whose favourite writers are Arthur Schopenhauer and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and favourite book is The Little Prince – took over responsibility for the club's youth system in 2009.

3. Manuele Blasi
The hard-tackling midfielder left Juventus in 2006 and continued to play in Serie A for a number of years with teams including Napoli, Fiorentina and Palermo. After two seasons in Serie B with Varese, he moved to India in 2015 to turn out for Chennaiyin, a side coached by former Italy defender Marco Materazzi. His team side won the Indian Super League in December, with Blasi playing 90 minutes in the decisive 3-2 win against Zico's Goa.

4. Lilian Thuram
The classy French defender departed Juve in 2006, just after losing the World Cup final against Italy on penalties, and spent the final two seasons of his splendid career at Barcelona. A world and European champion with France, in 2008 he founded the Lilian Thuram Foundation, whose work is dedicated to the fight against racism.

5. Gianluigi Buffon
After a spectacular Parma debut aged 17 in 1995 – keeping mighty AC Milan at bay in a 0-0 draw – Buffon has never looked back. "I knew I was a special goalkeeper," he told UEFA.com. "I kept my feet on the ground but I am not stupid." By 19, Buffon had won the UEFA Cup and was an international, and he proceeded to become the world's most expensive keeper when signing for Juventus in 2001. Fifteen years, six league titles and a World Cup later, Buffon is Italy's most-capped player and still going strong.

6. Emerson
Nicknamed 'Il Puma' for his feline elegance, Emerson left Juve for Real Madrid in 2006 and won the Spanish title in his only Liga season under former Roma and Juve coach Fabio Capello. He then spent two years at Milan before ending his career with Santos in his native Brazil. A TV pundit during the 2010 World Cup, he worked briefly on Vanderlei Luxemburgo's coaching staff at Grêmio before returning full time to the football academy he founded in Pelotas in 2011.

7. Fabio Cannavaro
The last defender to win the Ballon d'Or, Cannavaro was rated one of the best of his generation. He captained Italy to their 2006 World Cup final triumph on what was his 100th Azzurri outing and quit the national-team stage in 2010 with 136 caps. The centre-back also lifted the 1999 UEFA Cup with Parma after leaving home-town club Napoli, and landed two Liga titles with Real Madrid between spells at Juventus. He currently coaches Saudi outfit al-Nassr after a spell with Guangzhou in China.
