December 8, 2009 — Bayern Munich goalkeeper HANS-JOERG BUTT has the unique opportunity to give himself an early Christmas present, register a most rare ‘hat trick’ and level the UEFA Champions League Group A match with legendary Italian side FC Juventus all at the same time in the 30th minute at the old Stadio delle Alpi in Turin.

Butt had netted 26 times in the Bundesliga for both SV Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen previously, however, had not scored a goal in a match for the Bavarians since signing with Bayern Munich in the summer of 2008 following a season spent with traditional Portuguese powerhouse SL Benfica of Lisbon. It had also been nearly four years since the Germany international had last written his name on the scoresheet in a Bundesliga match for Bayer Leverkusen, then. Significantly, though, Butt had already been successful from the penalty spot twice in the past against highly-decorated Italian outfit FC Juventus of Turin.
