Juventus v Real Madrid: Five classic matches between the 2017 Champions League finalists

Ahead of Saturday’s eagerly awaited UEFA Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid, we pick out five memorable matches between the Old Lady and Los Merengues, starting way back in 1962…

1962: Real Madrid 3-1 Juventus
European Cup quarter-final replay

This was a time when European Cup matches could go to a replay. This quarter-final ended up being decided on neutral ground at the Parc des Princes in Paris.

A goal inside the opening minute from Felo gave Real the perfect start before Sivori slipped the ball under the goalkeeper to equalise. Second-half strikes from Del Sol and Tejada saw the then five-time champions progress to the last four.

1998: Real Madrid 1-0 Juventus
European Cup Final

In the third of Juve’s five European Cup final defeats and second in as many years, Zinedine Zidane lined up against his future employer for a tense, star-studded game at the Amsterdam ArenA.

Edgar Davids, Pavel Nedved, Roberto Carlos, Raul, Clarence Seedorf, Didier Deschamps, Filippo Inzaghi, and Alessandro Del Piero all started the match. Current Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte made an appearance from the bench in the second half.

But it was Real’s Montenegrin striker Predrag Mijatović who scored the only goal of the game and brought the trophy back to Madrid for the first time in 32 years.

2003: Juventus 3-1 Real Madrid
Champions League Semi-Final 2nd Leg

Real were fully expected to progress to their fourth Champions League final in six seasons after taking a 2-1 first-leg lead to Turin.

However, injuries to Ronaldo and Raul significantly weakened Vicente del Bosque’s attacking threat, which was easily nullified by the giant frame of Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon.

A late goal from Zidane flattered the visitors as Juventus ran out comfortable 3-1 winners with goals from David Trezeguet, Alessandro Del Piero, as well as a glorious strike from Nedved.

But Nedved would also pick up a late booking after hacking down BT Sport’s Steve McManaman. That yellow card ruled Juve’s talismanic midfielder out of the final, which they lost on penalties to AC Milan.

2005: Juventus 2-0 Real Madrid
Champions League Round of 16 2nd Leg

Two years later, Juventus would again overturn a first-leg deficit by defeating Real 2-0 after extra time, when a 116th minute Marcelo Zalayeta goal sealed an early exit for Vanderlei Luxembourg’s team.

On a night in which the Old Lady completely dominated, Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed a host of golden opportunities to win the match in normal time on a night remembered for David Trezeguet’s stunning overhead kick.

Juve must have thought this would be their year, but nothing that season was going to get in the way of Liverpool’s Champions League fairytale.

2015: Real Madrid 1 Juventus 1
Champions League Semi-Final 2nd Leg

Alvaro Morata had been sold by Real Madrid to Juventus for €20 million in 2014 but would come back to haunt his former club in both legs of this semi-final.

Goals from Morata and Carlos Tevez gave Juve a 2-1 going in the return match in Madrid. And it was the Spanish international who struck again to give Juve the lead. Ronaldo scored for Real, but a masterclass in defending from the Italians saw them hold out for a famous victory.

The following year Real would exercise a buy-back clause in Morata’s contract to bring him back to the Bernabeu for €30 million.
