Bayer Leverkusen v Liverpool
Real Madrid were out to avenge their semi-final defeat to Bayern a year earlier. They took a first half lead in Munich, but two late Bayern goals gave the Germans a first leg lead. Bayern held out for over an hour in the return, but Real eventually ran out 2-0 winners to go through to the semi-finals. Their Spanish rivals Barcelona were given a shock when they lost their first leg to Panathinaikos thanks to a controversial late penalty. They received an even greater shock, however, when the Greeks took the lead in the Nou Camp. However, Barcelona staged a famous comeback with two Luis Enrigue goals and one from Saviola giving them a 3-1 win on the night and 3-2 overall.

The semi-final draw pitted the two Spanish giants together. Real Madrid took a big step towards the final when they won the first leg in the Nou Camp 2-0 thanks to goals from Zidane and McManaman. Barcelona never really threatened to overturn Real's advantage in the return match and a 1-1 draw saw Real Madrid through to the Final.

In the other semi-final Manchester United were hot favourites to knock out Bayer Leverkusen, but despite taking the lead twice at Old Trafford, Bayer twice hit back to take home a 2-2 draw. In the second leg United again took the lead, but Neuville's goal brought Leverkusen level again and they eventually progressed to the Final courtesy of the away goals rule.
In the Final, Real Madrid returned to Hampden Park in Glasgow, scene of their most famous European Cup win back in 1960. This time they took an early lead when Raul latched onto a long throw. As in the semi-finals, Leverkusen hit back to equalise through a Lucio header. But Real Madrid finally took the cup thanks to one of the great European Cup Final goals as Zidane volleyed the ball into the top corner of the goal to bring the European Cup trophy back to Madrid once again.
