22 years of Juve`s triumph over River Plate 

22 years of Juve`s triumph over River Plate


Today marks 22 years of Juventus 1-0 victory over River Plate for the Intercontinental Cup. On November 26, 1996, the old lady defeated the South American champion 1-0. Alessandro Del Piero became the hero of the evening, pushing Roberto Bonano`s only goal in the 81st minute. The meeting was broadcast directly from Tokyo on Channel 1 air. The result could have been greater in favor of the Italian Grand Prix if it was not for Zinedine Zidane and Alain Boksic. It`s interesting that River Plate is waiting for a kickback date against Boca Juniors for Copa Libertadores. The duel had to be played on Saturday, but was postponed because of excesses. The winner will meet Real Madrid and the other continental champions of the upcoming World Club Championship in the UAE. Juventus lost five Champions League finals after 1996. (41)
