1996 Juventus 1-1 Ajax

The 1995-96 season of the European UEFA Champions League football club tournament was won by Juventus F.C. on penalties in the final against defending champions Ajax Amsterdam. It was the only Champions League title that they won in the 1990s despite reaching the next two finals, and one of only two Italian wins in the final despite a Serie A club reaching the final for seven straight years from 1992 to 1998.

It was the first tournament in which three points were awarded for a win instead of two in the group stage.
