The 1995 UEFA Champions League Final was the 40th edition and took place in Vienna between Ajax and Milan. It was Milan's third consecutive UEFA Champions League final, a feat which has since been matched in the Champions League era by Juventus between 1996 and 1998 and Real Madrid between 2016 and 2018, Milan was also aiming to tie Real Madrid's record of having won the European Cup/UEFA Champions League six times. After 85 minutes, the deadlock was broken when Patrick Kluivert, aged 18 years and 327 days, became the youngest player to score (on an assist by Frank Rijkaard) in a UEFA Champions League final.
