Five memorable meetings
The first European meeting between the sides and a portent of what was to come, with Madrid and Juve inseparable over two legs. After Madrid star Alfredo Di Stéfano and Juve’s Omar Sívori had each scored on enemy territory, a replay in Paris was required. Felo, Luis del Sol, and Justo Tejada found the net to put Madrid into the semi-finals, where they knocked out Standard Liège before losing to Benfica in the final.
This tie came in the middle of the clubs’ respective golden eras at the start of the millennium: Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos gave Madrid the first-leg advantage, but David Trezeguet, Alessandro Del Piero and Pavel Nedvěd turned the tide in Turin, rendering Zinédine Zidane’s late goal mere consolation for the holders.
1997/98 UEFA Champions League final
Juventus 0-1 Real Madrid
Having won the first five European Cups, and added a sixth in 1966, Madrid endured a 32-year wait to reclaim the trophy. The Merengues finally secured a seventh continental triumph thanks to Predrag Mijatović’s close-range finish in a tight final in Amsterdam.
This was the last time Real Madrid tasted defeat in the UEFA Champions League knockout stage, and it was inspired by one of their own. Signed from Madrid the previous summer, Álvaro Morata scored in both legs, including the crucial second-leg equalizer at the Santiago Bernabéu, as Juve squeaked into the Berlin final, where they would lose to Barcelona.
