The Blizzard: Boca Juniors 2-1 Real Madrid, 2000

Hola y bienvenido to another episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard. We’re off to the 2000 Intercontinental Cup final where Boca Juniors took on Real Madrid, and our tour guide for today is football writer and editor of Brazil Global Football Rupert Fryer!


This was a hugely significant game for both sides; the Boca side featured three legends of the game fleetingly crossing paths, as manager Carlos Bianchi led a team featuring Juan Román Riquelme and Martín Palermo. Whilst on the Spanish side of the ledger, Luís Figo recently signalled the beginning of the Galáticos era by moving to Real as the world’s most expensive player. He was backed up by a team that included Guti, Raúl and Steve McManaman and was manager by legendary coach Vicente del Bosque. Listen on for extensive chat about a collection of brilliant footballers showcasing their brilliant skill.
