Real Madrid beat Manchester United (2-3) in a game which will be remembered for a moment of magic by the Argentine.
On the 19th of April 2000, Real Madrid beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on their way to lifting La Octava in Paris. The game will live long in the memory of all madridistas thanks not only to the win, but also a wonderful piece of skill by Redondo on the left wing to craft the third Whites' goal. It was the perfect blend of skill and physical power as the Argentine played a sublime back-heel nutmeg on Berg before running on to it himself and pulling back to set up Raúl.

The Whites, who had drawn in the first leg (0-0), came through the tie thanks to a 2-3 victory at the home of the reigning European champions. A Keane own goal opened the scoring, and Raúl then got his name on the scoresheet for the first time, before going on to finish Redondo's brilliant run to grab himself a brace. Despite Manchester United reacting through goals by Beckham and Scholes, the Whites went through to beat Bayern in the semi-finals, and were too good for Valencia in the final to get their hands on La Octava.
