The 1995 UEFA Cup Final was played between two Italian teams Juventus and Parma, and was played over two legs. The first match between these two sides was played at the Stadio Ennio Tardini and it ended in a 1–0 victory for the home team. The following leg was then played at the San Siro in Milan with this encounter ending in a 1–1 draw for the home side. This was also Parma's very first UEFA Cup final victory, with Juventus having won several in the past.

Background

The final was the fifth time a final had been played by two teams from the same country and the third all-Italian final. The first all-Italian final also featured Juventus, who overcame Fiorentina by three goals to one over two legs in the 1990 UEFA Cup Final. It was Parma's first appearance in a UEFA Cup final, but represented the third consecutive year in which they had contested a European final, following European Cup Winners' Cup final appearances in 1993 and 1994. It was Juventus' fourth appearance in a UEFA Cup final. The previous finals were all two-legged affairs ending in victory for the Turin club. These were against Athletic Bilbao in 1977 on the away goals rule, against Fiorentina in 1990 and against Borussia Dortmund in 1993.

Parma's only previous experience in Europe against another Italian side was in the 1993 European Super Cup when they emerged victorious over A.C. Milan by two goals to one over two legs, having lost the first leg at home by a single goal. Juventus were meanwhile attempting to complete the third leg of a treble of titles: Serie A, Coppa Italia and the UEFA Cup While Parma played their home tie at their home ground, Stadio Ennio Tardini, Juventus played at the home ground of the famous Milanese clubs, Internazionale and A.C. Milan, because they had difficulties with the landlord of their own stadium, Stadio delle Alpi.

The two sides would also meet the following month in the 1995 Coppa Italia Final.

Summary

Parma, the home team, went into a fifth-minute lead through Dino Baggio, which they held and subsequently took to the return at Milan's San Siro.

Summary

Gianluca Vialli restored parity in the tie overall before Dino Baggio struck again to give Parma a 2–1 aggregate victory. Thus provincial Parma added the UEFA Cup to the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup they had won two years before.
