Football: Italy 2 Germany 0
Wednesday 19 April 1995
Faustino Asprilla scored twice and created the third goal for Gianfranco Zola, as Parma became only the 10th team to reach three European finals in a row. Already leading 2-1 after the away leg in Germany, Parma made the perfect start when Asprilla seized on a rebound to shoot them further ahead in the third minute.
Zola set up Asprilla for the second in the 55th minute, and the Colombian returned the favour for Zola 12 minutes later. The only disappointment for Parma was the fact that Massimo Crippa picked up a yellow card that will rule him out of the home first leg of the final on 3 May, in which they will meet their Serie A and Italian Cup rivals, Juventus, following the Turin club's 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund.
The first leg had ended 2-2 and Juventus took an early lead, thanks to a seventh-minute goal by the defender Sergio Porrini. Dortmund needed only three minutes to reply through Julio Cesar, but Roberto Baggio gave the Italian side victory when he curled a right-footed free-kick from 25 yards out over the German wall.
