Top Shocking Champions League Results

#10 NK Maribor 2-0 Lyon (2nd Leg, 3

Although not yet recognizable as the team of seven successive league titles and ever-presents in the Champions League, Lyon were still the team that had finished 3rd in the French league and they possessed the league’s top scorer in Brazilian Sonny Anderson. The Slovenian team had already caused a surprise in reaching this stage by beating Belgian team KRC Genk. It was an even bigger upset when they then dispatched the future French Champions by beating them in the 2nd leg to obtain an aggregate 3-0 victory and progress to the Champions League group stage for the first time in their history.
