Sven's Match of the Season
UEFA Champions League Quarter Final First Leg,
Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, 08 April 2003
Real Madrid 3 - 1 Manchester United
Figo 12 van Nistelrooy 52
Raúl 28, 49
Sven's summary: "This was a fantastic match. Some of the football Madrid played was out of this world. The way they kept possession, attacked together, and controlled the ball was very special.
"This night they had all of their stars playing so well together as a team. Zidane was incredible, Figo scored that great goal and then there is Raul and Ronaldo too.
"I'm not even sure Ronaldo was 100% fit but he's always creating chances and scoring. When they play like that, they are frightening."
Real Madrid: Cassilas; Salgado, Hierro, Helguera, Roberto Carlos; Figo, Makelele, Flavio Conceicao; Ronaldo (Guti, 83), Raul.

FA Cup 6th Round, Highbury, 08 March 2003
Arsenal 2 - 2 Chelsea
Jeffers 37 Terry 3
Henry 45 Lampard 83
Sven's summary: "This was a typical FA Cup tie! It was a fantastic match. "The game started off with an explosion - John Terry scored a lovely header after three minutes and it just continued from there.
"The FA Cup always has a different feel about it to the league games because you know that if you lose you are dead. The atmosphere in the grounds for Cup games is very special - you don't find that in any other countries.
"There was so much happening in this game - the Cudicini penalty save and then Henry's goal just before half-time. That was quality of the very highest level. Henry could play for Real Madrid too!
"It was a game that went right to the end...Jeffers scored near the end of the second half. Typical FA Cup - excellent."

Worthington Cup Final, Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, 02 March 2003
Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United
Sven's summary: "This was another super game. It's always a fantastic atmosphere at The Millennium Stadium and this was another game to remember. By his own standards Michael hadn't scored that many goals in the build-up to this game but people should know better than to doubt players like him and Steven Gerrard. They both showed that they were big-game players on this occasion."
"United went on to win the League of course, but this was Liverpool's day."
