Champions League 25th Anniversary -

Quarter-Final - Manchester United 4-0 FC Porto


The Champions League returns this week and we are celebrating it here at ITV Sport Archive by going through our vault to find some of the best games featuring British clubs since the competition began 25 years ago.

Back in 1997 Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United took on FC Porto. United were competing in their first European Cup quarter-final since winning the competition under Sir Matt Busby in 1968. With Schmeichel, Beckham, Giggs and Cantona all starring on the night, it was another European classic at Old Trafford in front of the ITV cameras.
