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!
