The 1997 UEFA Champions League Final was a football match played between Borussia Dortmund of Germany and Juventus from Italy. The event took place at the Olympiastadion in Munich on 28 May 1997. Borussia Dortmund wore their traditional yellow and black shirts, while Juventus donned their blue away kit.


Match summary

Karl-Heinz Riedle put Dortmund ahead finishing from Paul Lambert's cross. Riedle then made it two with a header from a corner kick. In the second half, Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero, who had come on as a substitute, scored a back-heel from a cross to make the score 2–1. Then, 20-year-old substitute and Dortmund local boy Lars Ricken latched on to a through-pass by Andreas Möller. Only 16 seconds after coming onto the pitch, Ricken chipped Angelo Peruzzi in the Juve goal from over 20 yards with his first touch of the ball. Ricken became the youngest player ever to score in a Champions League final, and his goal was the fastest ever by a substitute in said event. With Zinedine Zidane unable to make an impression against Lambert's marking, Juve were beaten. The 3–1 victory gave Dortmund their first Champions League title.
