(AP) -- On Monaco's sun-kissed shores, Juventus can prove Italian football isn't on its deathbed.

The first decade of this millennium was one of Italian glory. Between them, Milan's teams - AC and Inter - won the Champions League three times. Only Spain, with three titles from Real Madrid and Barcelona, did as well from 2001-2010.

In 2002-2003, club football's leading competition was almost entirely `Made in Italy,' with three semifinalists (Juventus, Inter, and Milan), and Milan beating Juventus on penalties in the all-Italian final.
