Juventus F.C. endured its worst domestic season since 1990–91, following a serious knee injury on superstar Alessandro Del Piero and a backlash for France's World Cup hero Zinedine Zidane. Contrary to the previous four seasons under the guidance of Marcello Lippi, Juventus' offense malfunctioned, and in February Lippi was let go by the club, with successful former Parma coach Carlo Ancelotti taking over.

With Ancelotti at the helm, Juve managed to salvage some respectability by reaching the semi finals of the Champions League, where eventual champions Manchester United just got the better of the Italian champions. But following that narrow defeat, Juventus had to settle for the UEFA Cup the next season, due to a lowly seventh place in the league.
