During the return match, the hero of Spain '82 lived a perfect evening. A brace for him, always taking advantage of the very high defensive line of the opponents. The journalists sitting in the stands became even more convinced that Paolo was the right player for 1982 Ballon d'Or award.
There are three previous friendlies between Standard de Liège and Juventus. The first dates back to 1955 and the Belgians won 1-0. In the most recent matches, Trezeguet took the stage: he scored the goal that decided the clash in summer of 2005, played in Geneva. Two years later in Liège the Belgians (led from the bench by Preud'homme) won 3-2, when the French striker struck twice.
