Over the following seasons, Totti played in a free role as either a forward or second striker in a 3–5–2 formation , often alongside either Batistuta or the newly acquired youngster Antonio Cassano .  He scored his first hat-trick in Serie A, in a 3–2 away win over Brescia on 30 September 2002.  Totti also scored the only goal in Roma's decisive 1–0 victory at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium against Real Madrid on 30 October 2002; this was the first time in 35 years that an Italian team had won a match in Madrid .  He continued his goalscoring exploits against Valencia , scoring two goals in Roma's 3–0 win.  Despite this, Roma only finished third in their Champions League group, and in eighth position in Serie A,  although they managed to reach the 2003 Coppa Italia final . In the final against Milan, Totti scored three times from free kicks over both legs (one goal at home and two at the San Siro ), but Roma lost out to Milan 6–3 on aggregate.  In 2003, Totti won his second Serie A Footballer of the Year Award.
