As the game entered stoppage time, a cross from David Beckham pinged about the box before falling to the feet of Ryan Giggs, who made no mistake in firing into the roof of the net from close range.
The score was level at last.
Old Trafford erupted into absolute joy. With United having to travel to Turin for the final leg of the tie – and having never won on Italian soil – the Reds knew how important the goal was in keeping their hopes of reaching the final alive.
The 1998/99 competition may be primarily remembered for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s historic late winner against Bayern Munich in the final, but Giggs’s late goal against Juventus in the semi-final was an important one, and a key step on the club’s route to European glory and the Treble.
