Although Juventus have found a lot of success in the Serie A under former boss Antonio Conte, they were not able to produce the same form in the Champions League.
Last season, they were not able to make it to the knockout stages of the European competition, finishing third in their group behind Real Madrid and Galatasaray with one win three draws and two defeats.
This season they have been drawn in an equally challenging group alongside Atletico Madrid, Olympiakos and Malmö FF.
Conte's successor Massimiliano Allegri has been doing well in the Serie A, helping the Old Lady register wins in the opening two games against Chievo Verona (1-0) and Udinese (2-0).
However, the former AC Milan boss' abilities will be thoroughly tested in the Champions League this season.
Despite the bad memories of their poor performances in the Champions League still looming over them, Allegri insists that his side will need to at least aim for a quarterfinal finish this season.
"Juve were knocked out in the group stage, but they played well last year. Sometimes you don't get what you deserve in Europe, but Juve are a great side and they need to aim to get into the last eight," Allegri told UEFA's official website.
However, the 47-year-old boss says that his side will be first focusing on getting out of the group stages, taking it one game at a time.
"Our group may seem straighforward, but it was the same last year and Juve were eliminated, so that shows it's not easy to get through the group stage."
Although Juventus are expected to easily beat Malmö in their opening game, Allegri says that his side will not be underestimating any side in the Champions League.
"Malmö are certainly ahead of us in terms of their condition. They are also well-organised, so we're going to have to be very careful and secure in defence," he added.
Meanwhile, Malmo, despite playing in the Champions League group stage for the first time, will be hoping to give some competition to their opponents in Group A.
The Swedish champions, who beat three teams - Ventspils, Sparta Prague and Red Bull Salzburg – in the qualifying stages to book a spot in the group stages of the Champions League, will probably be targeting a third-place finish in their group so that they can continue playing in the Europa League.
Malmo boss Åge Hareide feels that his side can take advantage of Juventus' fatigue (following their recent Serie A clash against Udinese), insisting that that Malmö are used to playing three games in a week.
"Juventus have only just started their season and this could be an advantage for us," Hareide said. "We've seen them play and we noticed that they were a bit tired towards the end against Udinese [on Saturday],"
"We are already used to playing three games a week. We've got to try to do our best, and then maybe we have a chance. We've got two of the best forwards in Swedish football and this could help us."
