Through out more than one week have been the means that have compared the final on Wednesday with AC Milan – FC Barcelona 1994.
Reasons for not short now as then, we were in the presence of the two best templates on the continent.
At that time, Cruyff’s team came to Athens as a favorite. He had great players like Ronald Koeman, Stoichkov and Romario. Also counted as Spanish football history Zubizarreta and Pep Guardiola himself.
His offensive performance delighting locals and foreigners.
However, he stood on his forehead for Fabio Capello AC Milan (trainer that has embittered many times life Barça). The Italians came pretty bad. Franco Baressi, captain and defensive stronghold for Milan could not play due to suspension. But it mattered little to the Italians won 4-0 with as many converted by Savicevic (2) Massaro and Desailly. The performance of rossonera squad, which played the recently retired former Madrid Maldini and Panucci, is considered the best example of a team in the history of the finals of the Champions League.
Surely this Wednesday when Guardiola of the final talk, remember that defeat and try to enter your team with a higher concentration to avoid another catastrophe.
