Arsenal 3-1 Juventus – 2001/2002

04 December 2001 | Champions League | Second Group Stage

A wonderful piece of individual skill by Dennis Bergkamp to send in Fredrik Ljungberg for the Swede’s second goal completed the renaissance of Arsenal’s hopes of again reaching the quarter-finals, hopes which had looked so moribund after their insipid performance when losing 2-0 to Deportivo La Coruna a fortnight earlier.

Juventus were in form and brimming with confidence, having overwhelmed Bayer Leverkusen 4-0 less than a week earlier. They left here not outclassed maybe but certainly outfought, outmanoeuvred and outrun.
