In 1990 Roberto Baggio signed for Juventus for £8million. He scored 27 goals and was the top goal scorer in the Cup Winners Cup. Juventus made it to the semi-finals where they faced Johan Cryuff’s Barcelona.
Barcelona won the 1st leg 3-1 with a Stoichkov double leaving Juventus needing to win 2 0 at home.
Baggio scored the opening goal in the 61st minute to give them a massive chance.
There was a Juventus free kick just outside the box for a clumsy Ronald Koeman trip. Baggio stepped up, eyed up the goal and beautifully curled the free kick around the wall into the top corner. The footage below from behind Baggio is class.
Barcelona managed to hold on but were eventually knocked out in the final 2-1 by Fergie’s Manchester United.
