Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 2000: Real Madrid

Answer: Vincente del Bosque

2000 saw the first final in the history of the Champions League / European Cup to feature two teams from the same nation. Real Madrid won 3-0 against Valencia to qualify for the 2000-01 tournament as winners, having finished a mere fifth in the Spanish league.

The final was also notable for featuring a 19-year old Iker Casillas as goalkeeper for Real Madrid. At the time he was the youngest goalkeeper ever to feature in the final of the Champions League / European Cup.
2. 2001: Bayern Munich

Answer: Ottmar Hitzfeld

Having lost the final to Real Madrid in 2000, Valencia were hopeful of making amends against the mighty German side Bayern Munich. Despite taking the lead within three minutes, Bayern equalised in the second half through Stefan Effenberg and went on to win the match 5-4 on penalties.

Effenberg was one of 10 players in the Munich squad who were also present in the 1999 final when Munich lost 2-1 to Manchester United, losing both goals in second half stoppage time. Otmar Hitzfeld was also the Munich manager that day.

This was Hitzfeld's second win in the tournament, however, as he led Boussia Dortmund to victory in 1997 with a 3-1 win over much fancied Juventus in the final.
3. 2002: Real Madrid

Answer: Vincente del Bosque

This was the third time Madrid won the competition in five years, and the second under Vincente del Bosque. Madrid beat German club Bayer Leverkusen 2-1.

The final at Hampden Park in Glasgow was famous for Madrid's second goal, a volley by Zinedine Zidane. Zidane's foot was so high the ball appeared to travel in an almost straight line into the top corner of the goal.

Despite his success at Madrid, del Bosque left the club in 2003. He would later go on to manage the Spanish national team, leading them to victory in the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2012 UEFA European Championship. Spain had already won the 2008 UEFA European Championship and as such became the first nation to win two successive European Championships and three straight major tournaments.
4. 2003: AC Milan

Answer: Carlo Ancelotti

The second final to see two clubs from the same nation compete against each other also saw the first final in the Champions League era to finish goalless after 90 minutes and extra time. AC Milan went on to beat Juventus 3-2 on penalties.

This was the first of three finals Ancelotti would lead Milan to in the space of five years. Ancelotti also won the tournament wth Real Madrid in 2013 as they became the first club to win the European Cup / Champions League 10 times.
5. 2004: FC Porto

Answer: Jose Mourinho

The 2004 final saw FC Porto of Portugal beat French side AS Monaco 3-0. Neither side would have been expected to even reach the final at the start of the tournament, but the introduction of a 16-team knockout round following the initial group stage as opposed to a second group stage from previous years saw many of the more fancied teams exit the tournament early.

This was the second time Mourinho had led Porto to a European trophy in two years, having previously won the UEFA Cup in 2003, beating Scottish club Celtic 3-2 in the final.
6. 2005: Liverpool

Answer: Rafael Benitez

A highly entertaining final in Istanbul saw Liverpool come from 3-0 down at half-time to secure a 3-3 draw against Italian side AC Milan, before winning the match 3-2 on penalties.

As with Jose Mourinho in 2004, this was Rafael Benitez's second European trophy in two years, however unlike Mourinho, Benitez achieved the feat with two different clubs, having led Valencia to the UEFA Cup in 2004 with a 2-0 victory over French side Marseille.
7. 2006: Barcelona

Answer: Frank Rijkaard

The 2006 final saw Barcelona of Spain take on English side Arsenal, two teams who were, at the time, regarded as playing the most attractive football in Europe.

Despite goalkeeper Jens Lehmann being sent off early on, Arsenal took the lead through defender Sol Campbell. Barcelona managed to make the extra man pay, though, and two late goals rom Samuel Eto'o and Juliano Belletti saw them win 2-1.

This was the first win in the tournament for Rijkaard as manager, although he had previously won the Champions League in 1995 with Ajax, and the European Cup in 1989 and 1990 with AC Milan.
8. 2007: AC Milan

Answer: Carlo Ancelotti

A repeat of the 2005 final saw AC Milan face Liverpool in Athens. There was to be no repeat of Liverpool's heroics from two years previously though, and Milan won 2-1.
9. 2008: Manchester United

Answer: Sir Alex Ferguson

The third final to b contested by two teams from the same nation was also the fourth final of the decade to be decided by a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw between Manchester United and Chelsea.

A fairly tense and uneventful final saw Sir Alex Ferguson win his second Champions League title, having previously led Manchester United to victory in 1999. It was also his fourth European trophy overall, having won the Cup Winners Cup in 1991 with Manchester United and in 1983 with Aberdeen.

Although Ferguson would lead Manchester United to the final again in 2009 and 2011, he would lose both times to Barcelona.
10. 2009: Barcelona

Answer: Pep Guardiola

The 2009 final almost saw a repeat of the 2008 final, but a very late goal from Andreas Iniesta saw Barcelona progress through to the final on the away goals rule following a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Barcelona went on to win the final 2-0 against Manchester United, with goals from Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi. This was the last match Cristiano Ronaldo would play for Manchester United before moving to Real Madrid for a then world record fee.

Having been promoted from the Barcelona 'B' team, Pep Guardiola was in only his second year as a football manager. During that year Barcelona became the first Spanis side to win the treble of Spanish La Liga, Copa del Ray and Champions League / European Cup.
