1999 champions league semi final

Tue 31 Mar 2020 16.38 EDT The other change is a striker, Nicola Amoruso, for the right-back Alessandro Birindelli. Juventus 2-1 Manchester United (Keane 24), United come from 2-0 down to reach first final since 1968. In Keane's absence, Ferguson had deployed Ronnie Johnsen in midfield to keep track of Zinedine Zidane, though late in the first half United also lost Nicky Butt through concussion. 38 min: Good save by Schmeichel! The Juventus defenders cannot cope. 31 min The TV camera zooms in on Didier Deschamps, who looks absolutely shattered already. He would have been through on goal, although Stam might have got back to him. Champions League. United are ahead in the tie! Ferrara has got away with a blatant professional foul on Yorke. The special nature of the fixture is partly because confrontations between these two teams have thrown up some classic encounters. A hint?!

He got between Pessotto and Zidane, who ended up his backside, and flashed it past Peruzzi. He then cut across the covering Ferrara in the D, only to be dragged down by the shoulder!

It all stemmed from a Schmeichel goalkick, which was headed on by Butt on the edge of the centre circle. 29 min There’s a good example: Davids tries to find Inzaghi on the halfway line, Stam bounces him off the ball and United come again. Irwin’s long ball down the left is headed on by Yorke to Cole on the edge of the area. 37 min United are all over Juventus now. Available for everyone, funded by readers. We’ve given away soft goals, we can’t afford to do it again. Replays confirm it was a clear foul by Ferrara, although it was definitely outside the area. “Although Andy from Norn Iron is wearing his “lucky jumper” (a red and black hoop Denis the Menace affair), it certainly isn’t working for United tonight. Blomqvist, just inside the Juventus half, played a slow square pass that Keane miscontrolled on the run. Late in the match, Ryan Giggs capped a fine performance as he sent a shot rocketing past Angelo Peruzzi. 45+1 min Blomqvist wins the ball with a beautiful, Giggs-like sliding tackle on Birindelli just inside his own half, and off United go again. United redoubled their efforts, and on 34 minutes Dwight Yorke headed home his 27th goal of that season. The second in 1999 - a pulsating victory after United had trailed by two goals - propelled Sir Alex Ferguson's side into their first European Cup Final in 31 years. Full time: Juventus 2-3 Manchester United, GOAL! Champions League, 25 Feb 03 |  The yellow card was out straight away, and Keane accepted it without complaint. “Is there a hint of male pattern baldness creeping in with Zinedine Zidane?”. The captain Roy Keane has dragged United back into the game! Inzaghi almost completes a first-half hat-trick to put Juventus back in front. Di Livio, on the left, lofts an angled pass to Inzaghi in the area.

It was another good link up from United’s front pair, who look as telepathic as at any point since that blizzard of goals at the start of the year. Our front players have been marvellous – the whole team has been first class. 46 min Juventus have made two half-time changes: the centre-half Paolo Montero, who wasn’t fit to start, has replaced Mark Iuliano, who wasn’t fit for purpose in the first half. First published on Tue 31 Mar 2020 13.45 EDT. What a goal! That’s a reflection of United’s sky-high confidence. Schmeichel comes but is beaten to the ball by Conte, whose header goes miles in the air and is about to dip into the net when Stam appears from nowhere to clear with his granite bonce. 39 min: Yorke hits the post! 28 min According to a graphic on ITV, United have had 62 per cent of possession in this game. I suppose what Keane meant was ‘pass the effing ball properly’, forward and/or with pace, not slow and sideways. The first-leg of the semi-final at Old Trafford had ended 1-1, meaning United needed to score at least one goal if they were to qualify for the final in Barcelona. "I stood in the tunnel before kick-off and the Juventus players made ours look small," Ferguson once said of a visit to Turin.

Seconds later, Inzaghi is wrongly flagged offside after running onto Zidane’s excellent through pass. United might still have scored through Beckham, whose shot from the edge of the area was blocked, and then Cole was given offside. It wouldn’t have counted anyway as Inzaghi had been flagged offside. Beckham headed it down to Cole, in a bit of space 30 yards from goal. If United play in the second half as they did in the last 25 minutes of the first, they will get there. The first-leg of the semi-final at Old Trafford had ended 1-1, meaning United needed to score at least one goal if they were to qualify for the final in Barcelona. Blomqvist tries to complete the one-two-three with a first-time cross towards Cole at the near post, where Iuliano does extremely well to get in front of Cole and poke the ball to safety. Knowing Keane, I doubt it will.

Neville pinched the ball off Di Livio with disdainful ease - Juventus just can’t get out - and drove a long straight pass towards the edge of the area. 24 min United move the ball smoothly from right to left, where Cole wins a corner. The first in 1997 gave United their first win over Italian opposition for 18 years. 50 min Zidane floats a cross into the middle, where Juventus have two against one. Even by Manchester United’s melodramatic standards, that was astonishing. Neville floats a long pass towards Blomqvist on the edge of the area. 22 min: Juventus should be down to 10 men! There’s no celebration from Keane: he points to Beckham, acknowledging the quality of the corner, and runs straight back to the halfway line to get on with business.
