Monaco's teen sensation Kylian Mbappe insists there is nobody his side want to avoid as they prepare for the Champions League semi-final draw. In another parallel, midfield great Zinedine Zidane was playing for Real Madrid back then and he is now the club's coach.
The win on the night game Monaco a comprehensive 6-3 aggregate victory, although the decision to reschedule the first leg just one day after the bad bomb attack on the Dortmund bus no doubt had a major bearing on the overall result.
Few teenagers have every made the incredible impact Mbappe has in their first seasons in the competitions. "Because our DNA is to attack and to always try and score".
However, the Juve stalwart has urged his team-mates to keep pushing for glory, telling BT Sport 2: "We're very happy with these small victories but what we really want to do is go all the way".
Following a five-minute delay to kick off after the Dortmund team bus had been held up by police en route to the stadium, Mbappe fired the hosts into an early lead.
Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel accepted his side had come off second best, with Monaco's early goal "destroying our belief".
"We stayed there for 16 or 17 minutes and when we tried to find out why they just said it was for security reasons". A goal-filled Ligue 1 campaign has them on top their too while they are in the semi-finals of the French Cup as well. Mbappe slotted the loose ball into the bottom left corner for his 22nd goal of a breakthrough season that has made the 18-year-old one of the brightest prospects in European football.
He also netted home and away against Manchester City in their last-16 ties.
The Germany worldwide was dragged off after only 26 minutes as Monaco had attacked freely down his channel and raced into a 2-0 lead through goals by Kylian Mbappe and Radamel Falcao.
"In the first leg it was impossible for us to play the game and take it seriously in the way we needed to do".
After the drama of last week's attack, this was a welcome return to euphoric, attacking football.
Before kick-off, the home fans showed solidarity by unveiling a banner which read: "BVB: You Will Never Walk Alone" as the anthem played out around the Stade Louis II.
As Dortmund kept pushing forward in numbers, Monaco was stretched down both flanks but, equally, Dortmund was increasingly exposed to slick counterattacking.
Germain put the result beyond doubt as he broke through down the right and slotted the ball under Burki's body.
"All the players played at a high level", Jardim said.
