1998 UEFA Champions League Final – Juventus v Real Madrid


On Saturday Real Madrid and Juventus go head-to-head in Cardiff in the Champions League Final. The Spanish giants are going in search for what would be a record twelfth title, their Italian opponents are out to avoid a fifth straight final defeat and secure their third European Cup triumph.

However this weekend’s encounter is not the first time they have met in the final. They both met 19 years ago in the 1998 final at the Amsterdam Arena. Back then Juventus were competing in their third Champions League final in a row and included a certain Zinedine Zidane in their starting line up.
