Juve reach the final

Last updated : 15 May 2003 By Martyn Elliott

Many observers believed Madrid to be unbeatable after they knocked Manchester United out in the quarter-finals, but Juve fought back from a 2-1 first leg deficit to win 4-3 on aggregate thanks to goals from David Trezeguet, Alessandro Del Piero and Pavel Nedved in the 3-1 second leg victory.

So schoolboy logic suggests we’re the best team in England:

Real Madrid 3 Manchester United 1

Juventus 3 Real Madrid 1

Newcastle United 1 Juventus 0

Where Newcastle United 2 Manchester United 6 fits into this theory is another matter!
