Borussia Dortmund ChampionsLeague Winners 1996 1997

The 1996–97 UEFA Champions League was the 42nd edition of UEFA's premier European club football tournament, the fifth since its rebranding as the UEFA Champions League, and the last involving only clubs that were champions of their domestic leagues. The tournament was won by Borussia Dortmund in a surprise 3–1 final victory against defending champions Juventus. It was their only title in the tournament to date, and the first title for Germany since its reunification.
In a memorable 1997 UEFA Champions League Final in Munich, Dortmund faced a Juventus team featuring Zinedine Zidane. Karl-Heinz Riedle put Dortmund ahead shooting home a cross from Paul Lambert, just below the keeper. Riedle then made it 2 with a bullet header from a corner kick. In the second half, Alessandro Del Piero pulled one back for Juve. Then 20-year old substitute and local boy Lars Ricken latched on to a through pass by Andreas Möller. Only sixteen seconds after coming on to the pitch, Ricken chipped Angelo Peruzzi  in the Juventus goal from over 20 yards with his first touch of the ball. With Zidane unable to make an impression against Lambert's marking, Borussia lifted the trophy with a 3–1 victory.

"I went through the game as if I were in a trance," a certain Karl-Heinz Riedle admitted to me a few months ago, when we spoke of the moment, or rather, of the two moments on 28 May 1997 in the Olympiastadion, Munich.
"In retrospect they were definitely the most important 90 minutes of my life," Riedle said, not without good reason.
