One of Man United’s most famous victories.
On April 21, 1999, Manchester United produced one of the great European comebacks. Alex Ferguson’s side recovered from being 2-0 down to beat Juventus 3-2 in Turin and reach the final of the Champions League.
The victory over Bayern Munich in Barcelona, to win the treble, the following month is, of course, more widely remembered.
However, the victory over Juventus was arguably more impressive and dramatic.
Juventus v Man United.
The Italian giants were one of the best teams in the world at the time. They had reached the European Cup final in 1996, 1997 and 1998 and outclassed Man United on a couple of occasions in the previous few seasons.
In the first leg of the semi-final at Old Trafford, they dominated the game and Ferguson’s team were lucky to escape with a 1-1 draw. After 11 minutes of the return match, they were 2-0 ahead, 3-1 on aggregate. Filippo Inzaghi scored twice and it looked like Man United would come up short in Europe once again.
However, a captain’s goal sparked a dramatic turnaround and United were in complete control by the final whistle, running out 3-2 winners in Turin.
