Juventus beware.

When the legendary Italian club faces D.C. United on Saturday, July 28, in a World Football Challenge match at RFK Stadium, they will face an MLS club that has a perfect record against Serie A teams.

While they have played numerous English clubs over the course of their history, D.C. United have one precedent against an Italian side and it's a victorious one.

On May 26, 2010 they hosted AC Milan and handed the Rossoneri a 3-2 defeat at RFK Stadium after taking a 3-0 lead before the hour mark.

Luciano Emilio, Chris Pontius and Danny Allsopp staked D.C. to the lead which they held onto despite a fightback by AC Milan that was fueled by a brace from Massimo Oddo.
