On this day in 2001, Liverpool won the UEFA Cup in dramatic fashion by defeating Alaves 5-4 in what is arguably the competition’s best ever final.
The Reds took the lead inside three minutes to set the tone of the fixture, before going in 3-1 up at half-time.
The Spaniards were determined to get themselves back in the game in the second half – and did so by levelling the scoreline to 3-3.
Liverpool would take the lead once more, before Jordi Cruyff found the back of the net in the 88th minute to send us into extra time at 4-4.
A ‘golden (own) goal’ was scored by Alaves defender Delfí Geli to confirm the win for the Reds with just four minutes left on the clock.
