But after six minutes, the Red Devils found themselves 1-0 down thanks to a Mario Basler free-kick.

It took United until the 90th minute to pinch a goal back and swing the momentum in their favour and one fan caught the comeback on a camcorder.

Teddy Sheringham poked home Ryan Giggs’ shot to draw Man Utd level as the game ticked over into added time.

And then Ole Gunnar Solskjaer swept the winner home from a corner to seal an unprecedented treble.

Thomas Coxhead shared the footage his dad recorded to Twitter and said: “23 years ago today.

“My Dad snuck his camcorder into the Nou Camp.

“He didn’t film any of the game, but got it out for the last five minutes.

“This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. We’ve never shared this footage, until now…”


Then-Bayern star and German legend Lothar Matthaus still can’t believe his side lost to United.

Writing for SunSport in 2019, Matthaus said: “I STILL can’t believe we lost on that evening in Barcelona.

“I just don’t know how it happened.     It was our game, all game — and my worst experience in football.”
