Match[edit]

Summary[edit]

Karl-Heinz Riedle put Dortmund ahead finishing from Paul Lambert's cross. Riedle then made it two with a header from a corner kick.

In the second half, Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero, who had come on as a substitute, scored via a back-heel from a cross by Alen Bokšić to make the score 2–1.

20-year-old substitute and Dortmund local boy Lars Ricken latched on to a through-pass by Andreas Möller only 16 seconds after coming onto the pitch. Ricken chipped Angelo Peruzzi in the Juve goal from over 20 yards with his first touch of the ball, to make it 3–1 for Dortmund. Ricken's goal was the fastest ever by a substitute in said event.

With Zinedine Zidane unable to make an impression for Juve against the close marking of Lambert,[1][2][3][4][5][6] the 3–1 victory gave Dortmund their only Champions League title to date.
