AS Monaco v Real Madrid, 03/04

The European football giants looked to be cruising through against the relative minnows from Ligue 1 after brushing them aside 4-2 at Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg.

It got easier in the first half of the second leg as Raul made it 5-2 on aggregate and put his side in complete control, but Monaco weren’t finished.

Captain Ludovic Giuly gave them a lifeline just before half time with a low drive and Fernando Morientes, who was on loan from los Blancos, gave them a sniff of victory just after the break.

Madrid hearts were broken with just over 20 minutes remaining when Giuly made it three and put Monaco through on away goals.
