Juventus F.C. had a successful season, despite rebuilding large parts of the team in spite of the 1996 UEFA Champions Leaguetitle. The result was another domestic title and a second consecutive Champions League final, where Karl-Heinz Riedle scored twice for Borussia Dortmund in a 3–1 victory, thus ensuring Juventus had to settle for only domestic glory.
It was a disappointing end to the season as the club had been impressive in the Champions League, winning 8 games out of 10 on their way to the final and losing none, and beating sides like Manchester United and Ajax both home and away. However, the team made a complete mess of the final played out in Munich, making uncharacteristic mistakes that were always likely to prove costly against opposition of Dortmund's quality.
New signing Zinedine Zidane was a revelation, but the most important feature in Juventus's league title was the spectacular form of Alessandro Del Piero, and a defensive force that Ciro Ferrara led towards glory together with Paolo Montero. Christian Vieri, another player signed in the summer of 1996, scored regularly in Champions League games but his less impressive league form (8 goals) saw him sold at the end of the season to make way for new signing Filippo Inzaghi. Vieri would go on to become top scorer of both the Spanish and Italian leagues for the clubs he subsequently played for.
