Javier Zanetti and Gennaro Gattuso pick Manchester United game as iconic Champions League moment

Back in December, Louis van Gaal's Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League at the group stages after a surprise 3-2 defeat against Wolfsburg.

Their return to Europe's leading club competition was brief; they'd missed out on qualification under previous boss David Moyes and another spell out in the cold looks likely next year, with a top four finish all but beyond their grasp with just a few games of the season to go.

It's easy to forget that there was a time when the Red Devils were kings of Europe - but that's something both Gennaro Gattuso and Javier Zanetti know all too well.

As part of Sony Xperia's Road to Milan Films, the legendary duo have been discussing their favourite Champions League moments and Manchester United feature heavily - their iconic Champions League semi-final win against Juventus in 1999 gets particularly special attention.

Want to go behind the scenes and get the inside scoop on some of the greatest Champions League moments ever - including AC Milan's semi-final win over the Red Devils and one of Jose Mourinho's greatest ever triumphs?
