Cup winners' cup finale

Cup winners' cup finale

On this day in 1999, we had the honour of staging the last-ever European Cup Winners Cup final when Villa Park was the venue for the clash between Lazio of Italy and Spain’s Real Mallorca.

Goals from Christian Vieri and Pavel Nedved gave the Italians a 2-1 victory, Mallorca replying through Dani.
