It’s a Football Ramble Daily crossover on today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, as we’re joined once again by Andy Brassell! Andy joins Marcus and Jonathan to discuss Juventus’ spectacular 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the 2003 Champions League semi-final.
The game was played at the notoriously derided Stadio delle Alpi on the outskirts of Turin. This, however, was different to the usually under-attended matches at Juventus’ ground, as Marcelo Lippi’s side played in front of rapturous home support. We discuss this gripping tie between two European heavyweights featuring the best and worst of Pavel Nedvěd, some questionable Real Madrid defending and an injury-enforced cameo from the great Ronaldo.
