Liverpool in Istanbul This ball was specifically made for the final Champions League match. Buy the latest Champion League Ball at: After a 4—2 loss in Madrid where Fernando Morientes scored, and was applauded by his former fans , Monaco created a sensation by defeating the Spanish 3—1 at home.
Monaco played against Chelsea in the semi-finals, and despite the exclusion of Akis Zikos , Monaco found enough strength to score twice and win the game 3—1.
The last goal was scored by striker Shabani Nonda , who just returned from a seven-month injury.
The second leg at Stamford Bridge saw Monaco resisting Chelsea's strikes, for a final score of 2—2 to reach the European Cup final for the first time in their history.
Porto's first match was at Partizan Stadium in Belgrade , Serbia. Costinha scored the opening goal again, on seven minutes. Helguera equalised on 28 minutes; Solari on 37 minutes and Zidane on 67 scored Real Madrid's winning goals.
After only getting one point from the first two games, Porto went on to secure their place in the first knockout round with three straight wins.
Three straight wins, two against Marseille and one against Partizan, secured Porto's place in the first knockout round before the last game of the group stage, a draw in Madrid.
In the first knockout round, Porto met Manchester United. The Portuguese won 2—1 at home and managed to qualify in the final minutes of the second leg, when Costinha scored an equaliser in injury time in a 1—1 draw at Old Trafford.
In the quarter-finals, Porto met a French team for the second time in the tournament: This was also the second time Porto had appeared in the Champions League final.
Porto were the favourites after knocking out Manchester United in the second round of the competition, while Monaco had knocked out Real Madrid and Chelsea.
Following much pre-match speculation, Monaco captain Ludovic Giuly took up a central attacking position from the start, and four times in the opening three minutes his pace nearly caught Porto cold.
The pendulum swung Porto's way when Rothen lost possession to Paulo Ferreira who ran up the right flank and crossed to the near post where Rodriguez just beat Deco to the ball.
Five minutes later though Porto took the lead from the same source. This time Paulo Ferreira's centre was a lofted one and it found Carlos Alberto.
Unselfishly, he tried to lay the ball off to Derlei but the ball bounced back to the teenager off the hapless Akis Zikos and this time it was despatched with aplomb past Flavio Roma 's left hand.
Up to that point, five minutes from the interval, Monaco had been the better side, but in the opening period of the second half Monaco looked shell-shocked, a goal down and minus the inspirational Giuly.
Gradually however they crept back into contention as Porto failed to capitalise and only another marginal offside verdict denied Morientes an equaliser.
But as their forays began to founder on the edge of the Porto area, the chance of a decisive counterattack grew more likely.
In the 71st minute, Deco broke clear and found Alenichev on the left. The Russian put the ball straight back into the playmaker's path and Deco stroked home Porto's second.
