The UEFA Cup is a European football tournament which began in the 1971/72 season, replacing the old Fairs Cup. Organized by UEFA, it's reserved to teams that have come right behind the team or teams who have the right to take part in the Champions League in their own national league.
UEFA Cup 1993
In a season that hadn’t been particularly inspiring in terms of the championship performance, it was the UEFA Cup that brought interest and ambitions. This competition saw things go better: the victories against the Cypriot side Anorthosis, the Greek team Panathinaikos and the Czech outfit Sigma Olomouc saw the Bianconeri qualify for the quarter-finals, where in March they faced the wonderful Benfica side featuring Paolo Sousa. Beaten by a small margin in Lisbon, Juve redeemed themselves in Torino with a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Kohler, Dino Baggio and Ravanelli.
In the semi-finals, George Weah’s Paris St. Germain came to town. In Torino, Weah gave the French side the lead but a Roberto Baggio in peak condition scored two goals to put Juve ahead and give the Bianconeri hope. At the Parc des Princes, on 22nd April, four days after the splendid, although long awaited victory over Milan at the Meazza (3-1) which returned Juve to first place in the championship, it was Baggio again who scored to end any French hopes.
Juventus added their third UEFA Cup to the trophy cabinet after a two-legged final against the German team Borussia Dortmund, winning 3-1 in Germany on 5th May (Dino and Roberto Baggio on the scoresheet) and then 3-0 at the Delle Alpi on 19th May (double from Dino Baggio and a strike from Moeller).
