While 'The Old Lady' and the 'Blaugrana' haven't been what you would call 'regular' opponents in the Champions League, the two clubs do have some recent history.

Lionel Messi will be one of the men that Juve will have to keep quiet in Berlin but the Italian giants were one of the first clubs to get an up-close look at the incredible talents of the Argentinian genius.

Take a look as Messi plays a starring role in the 2005 Joan Gamper Trophy final against Juventus, soon after his 18th birthday.

We love the footage of Patrick Viera and the wonderfully gifted Pavel Nedved trying to tackle the Barcelona man.
