“Sweet, sweet revenge"


Having famously forfeited a 3-0 half-time lead in the UCL final of 2005, the 2007 edition was our chance to exact revenge.


Revenge, we got. After a pre-game mess, seeing a number of Liverpool supporters - with authentic tickets refused entry - and Ancelotti's hesitations over whether he should start Inzaghi vs Gilardino, his decision proved correct, where in the 45' Inzaghi scored his first of 2 goals thanks to a deflection, doubling his tally in the 82'. With only moments left, Dirk Kuyt scored a headed goal to give a moment of hope to Liverpool fans, although his efforts were in vein as we went on to conquer Europe for the 7th time.


Where does this game rank in our list of UCL wins?
