Last match

Sturm Graz and Monaco meet again after 21 years. They were in the same group in the Uefa Champions League and on that occasion it was a win for each side. Marco Simone was the highlight of the clash at the Stade Louis II on September 27, 2000, because he scored a hat-trick. Farnerud and Nonda completed the 5-0 rout. In Austria, the hosts won 2-0, with Schopp scoring twice (once in each half).
