During the 12-season period lasting from 1992–93 to 2003–04, apart from winning the title in 1999–2000, Deportivo ended the season four times in second place and another four times in third place, contesting the UEFA Champions League five years in a row and reaching the semi-finals once, in 2004, where they lost to eventual winners Porto.
On 8 September 2001, Deportivo played its 1,000th game in La Liga. In 2002, they won the Copa del Rey for a second time with a superb 2–1 win against Real Madrid. This match is commonly known in Spain as the Centenariazo. Deportivo's illustrious opponents were expected to win the final comfortably as they were nicknamed the Galácticos and were among the strongest teams in Europe at the time. Additionally, the final was being played at their home ground, the Santiago Bernabéu.
Everything was prepared so that after the expected victory, Madrid could celebrate their 100th anniversary on the 100th anniversary of the Copa del Rey by lifting the trophy in front of their own fans. Real Madrid were indeed founded exactly 100 years to the day on 6 March 1902, though Deportivo spoiled the party with a 1–2 win with goals from Sergio and Diego Tristán.
