Real Madrid lost 1-2 to Bayern Munich the final of their centenary tournament in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Sunday night. Many of Del Bosque's World Cup players had only just returned from vacation, and they were outgunned by a side who had been back in training for several weeks now. Ballack gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot after Salgado was ruled to have handled in the area, and Salihamidzic added a second after the break. Figo got a late consolation goal, also from the penalty spot, after Morientes fell under a defender's challenge. Earlier in the evening Liverpool claimed third place after beating AC Milan 2-1.
Barcelona also lost out in the Amsterdam trophy after Ajax came back from two goals down to beat them 4-3. Van Gaal's side raced into a two goal lead by half time with strikes from Kluivert and Saviola, and although Mido pulled one back immediately after the restart, Saviola restored the two goal cushion almost immediately. However Barça ran out of steam, and after young striker Van der Vaart made it all square with two goals in three minutes, a last minute free kick from ex-Barça midfielder Richard Witschge gave Ajax the victory. Barcelona finished second, with Manchester United third after defeating Parma 3-0. (04.08.02)
