First leg


Summary

The first leg was at Parma's home, the Stadio Ennio Tardini. It remained level for the vast majority of the 90 minutes, but it was ex-Tardini regular Paolo Vanoli who got the only goal of the game for Fiorentina with just minutes left on the clock. Two years earlier, the left-back had scored for Parma to help them to victory in the 1999 UEFA Cup Final.

Second leg


Summary

The second leg was back in Florence, where Fiorentina would be favourites to win and even stronger favourites to take the trophy because only a Parma win could deny them victory. A first-half Savo Milošević strike made the Viola nervous, but Nuno Gomes hit back for the home side half-way through the second half to put Fiorentina back in control of the tie and his side duly saw the game out and lifted the trophy.
