1 Bayer Leverkusen vs. 2 Real Madrid
Madrid started out as favourites against Bayer Leverkusen. Despite the Whites taking a lead with a classic exchange between Roberto Carlos and Raúl, the Germans levelled with a header from Lucio.
But the final will be remembered for one of the best goals in the history of the Champions League. The difficulty of the shot, Roberto Carlos' cross and the importance of the clash; given the circumstances, perhaps only a genius such as Zidane would have been capable of executing this impossible volley into the top corner to win a Champions League final. Some stunning final minutes from Casillas, an unexpected hero in the wake of César's injury, sealed the win over Leverkusen.
