Posted by

On this day 24 years ago, Manchester United won a historic treble as they beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League Final.

After winning the Premier League and FA Cup, Sir Alex Ferguson’s United had the chance to complete a historic treble with a win over three-time European Cup winners Bayern.

Mario Basler gave the Germans the lead after six minutes at Camp Nou and as the game progressed, United and their fans started to worry, but in the first minute of added time at the end of the match, they were given hope when Teddy Sheringham diverted Ryan Giggs’ effort into the back of the net.

Extra time beckoned but two minutes later, the unthinkable happened, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wrote himself into United folklore, meeting Sheringham’s flick-on and scoring from close range from David Beckham’s corner.
