Parma 1998/1999

Parma won two trophies in one of the club’s most successful seasons. The Coppa Italia win over Fiorentina was followed by a spectacular 3–0 victory against French giants Marseille in the UEFA Cup Final. In the league, Parma could not quite match Milan and Lazio, but managed to clinch the fourth and final Champions League spot.

The squad included players such as Gianluigi Buffon, Lilian Thuram, Fabio Cannavaro, Juan Sebastian Veron, Enrico Chiesa and Hernan Crespo.
