The 1969 European Cup Final was a football match held at the Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid, on 28 May 1969, that saw Milan of Italy play against Ajax of the Netherlands to determine who would be the champions of Europe that season. Ajax made history by becoming the first Dutch side to reach the final, but they were beaten by their Italian opponents 4-1.[1][2]

As of 2020, Pierino Prati remains the most recent player to score a hat-trick in a European Cup or Champions League final.

Route to the final

Milan had a bye in the second round due to the withdrawal of a number of Eastern European clubs from the competition.

In the quarterfinal round, after two legs, eventual finalists Ajax were deadlocked 4-4 on aggregate against Portuguese side S.L. Benfica, forcing a replay. The Dutch champions won decisively in the replay by a score of 3-0.
