This is something we don't see too often!

Juventus Women are playing their very first game at the Allianz Stadium today, the home of their male colleagues, and boy are they causing a scene.

The club decided to offer free tickets to any fans that wanted to get behind the girls and the Old Lady faithful have responded in eye-watering droves.

39,000 people decided to take the club up on the free gig, almost tripling the league-high attendance record in the process.

At half time, the score is 0-0.

It comes a week after over 60,000 fans packed into Atlético Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium to take in a La Liga Iberdrola clash with Barcelona.

The Juventus ladies are somewhat of a new fad in Turin. They only came into being in 2017, when the club took over the playing rights of nearby neighbours ASD Cuneo Calcio Femminile for the 2017/18 Serie A season.

It was to prove a shrewd move, with the girls capturing the top-flight title in their very first year, albeit after a penalty shootout playoff victory over Brescia after both sides finished on equal points in the league.

Amongst their ranks, they can count English footballer and ITV World Cup pundit Eni Aluko. Aluko was at the centre of the storm that saw the former manager of the English women's side Mark Sampson removed from his post after allegations that included making a derogatory racial comment to the striker.

Many of Europe's top clubs have invested heavily in women's football programs in recent season. Notably, Manchester United launched there own ladies side at the start of the current season. They currently sit second in the second-tier of the English game.

Later this week, Chelsea, PSG, Barcelona and Bayern will all go into battle to try and earn a place in this year's UEFA Women's Champions League semi-finals.
