Paul Scholes playing for MAnchester United against Juventus at Old Trafford. October 1, 1997.

When you think of a famous Manchester United 3-2 win over Juventus in the Champions League, the 1999 semi-final second leg springs to mind. But how well do you remember United’s other 3-2 win over Juve, from October 1997?

The two giants were drawn against each other in the group stage of the 1997-98 competition and the first of their two encounters, at Old Trafford on October 1 1997, was a classic.

Juve took the lead early on through Alessandro Del Piero and pulled one back with a late Zinedine Zidane free-kick, but United scored three in between Juve’s goals to take the three points.

Substitute Paul Scholes’ delightful finish for the second United goal was a particular highlight, but here we want you to name the starting XI that Sir Alex Ferguson sent out that evening.
