FINALS ON THIS DAY
This is the fifth final to be played on the 26 May
Peter Withe scored the only goal Aston Villa FC would need against FC Bayern München, turning in Tony Morley’s low cross midway through the second half in Rotterdam to extend England’s grip on the trophy to a sixth season.
AC Milan keeper Sebastiano Rossi was rooted to his line as Basile Boli rose highest to head in Abedi Pele’s corner two minutes before half-time. Olympique de Marseille won 1-0 in Munich and, 25 years on, are still the only French side to lift the trophy.
One of the great final comebacks. Manchester United FC looked finished, trailing 1-0 to Bayern as the game entered added time at the Camp Nou, only for two goals in as many minutes from substitutes Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjær to turn the match on its head.
A year after leading FC Porto to the UEFA Cup, coach José Mourinho was at it again in Gelsenkirchen, this time on the biggest stage. Carlos Alberto, Deco and Dmitri Alenichev got the goals against AS Monaco FC as the Portuguese side claimed the title for a second time.
