    On 5 February 1997, the Bianconeri followed their 6-1 away thrashing of French giants PSG in the first leg with a 3-1 win in the second to lift the prestigious trophy in Palermo

    Seventeen years ago today, on 5 February 1997, Juventus pulled off the biggest aggregate victory in the history of the European Super Cup with a 3-1 second-leg success over Paris Saint-Germain.

    The result rounded off a 9-2 overall triumph and saw the Bianconeri lift the trophy for the second time in their history.

    Palermo’s Stadio Renzo Barbera was the venue for the return leg following a 6-1 win in the French giants’ own back yard on 15 January, and it was another high scoring affair the second time around.

    Marcello Lippi’s men were lifted to victory by a brilliant double from Alessandro Del Piero and a 93rd-minute icing on the cake from substitute Christian Vieri, while Paris Saint-Germain’s solitary strike again came from Rai, also on target from the penalty spot in the first meeting at the Parc Des Princes.

    This latest triumph was the crowning glory of a 12-month period that also saw the Bianconeri add three other major pieces of silverware to their trophy cabinet:  the Italian Super Cup, the Intercontinental Cup and finally the Champions League that had qualified them to take part in the European Super Cup.
