Season summary[edit]

Deportivo Alavés enjoyed one of the greatest seasons in their history. Although they were unable to improve on the previous season's sixth-placed finish, they reached the final of the UEFA Cup for the first time in their history, facing English giants Liverpool. Alavés fought bravely and finished normal time level with Liverpool 4-4; the game went to extra time, where Alavés narrowly lost to a golden own goal.
